I have to spend time getting to know someone before I start opening up, but I am not hard to get along with at all. I am not very experienced when it comes to building relationships, so you’ll have to forgive me if I am a little awkward at times. I guess I have just been so preoccupied with academic pursuits that I have largely neglected the social side of life. School always stressed me out, but I typically end up doing pretty well. Unfortunately, I've just spent too much time worrying about things that I've neglected developing good social skills. I tend to be a loner, but once I get well acquainted with someone I can be quite humorous, sarcastic, affectionate, witty, rude, and silly. I don’t make many enemies. In general I am looking for someone who can accept me for who I am.
I know that religion and politics can be quite divisive, but I think I should divulge my beliefs on the subject. My beliefs are important to me, but I don't take things too seriously. Religiously I am an atheist. Politically I am a libertarian democrat who considers himself a philosophical anarchist. In other words, it may be impossible to completely abolish the state and capitalism, but I still believe in pursuing an ideal society that maximizes freedom and equality for everyone. Don't worry. Most people probably haven't heard these terms before, and those who have probably think I am a little crazy. My beliefs are sometimes shocking to people. The word “anarchism” itself holds a strong negative connotation for many people who probably don’t know much about it. Many people erroneously associate anarchism with this picture of a wield-eyed, destructive bomb-thrower. However, I can reassure you that doesn't describe who I am at all. My religious and political beliefs are an important part of who I am, but I am pretty accepting of different beliefs as long as they contain room for accepting who I am. I welcome with open arms anyone who wants to explore different ways of thinking with me.
I think it was important to be upfront about my unorthodox views since they can unfortunately be a problem for some people. If your politics can handle someone who is extremely left-wing and libertarian, then you will probably get along just fine with me. We've got to be able to poke fun at each others beliefs without venturing into uncivil, abusive, and hateful territory. I'm fine with those who call me an idealist, utopian, dreamer. I believe that we won't know what is possible until we reach for the impossible. Peaceful political activism is something I hope to get involved with. I'm a caring person concerned with equality and freedom. I think my political views are relevant here because, I desire these same qualities in a relationship. I am looking for another open-minded person with whom to share a love of exploring and improving the world.
I am affectionate, open-minded, and introverted
