I've been struggling to find the right words for this since I first joined this site. I'm a very strange guy. I am glad that I'm not "normal", but not everyone shares my opinion so that's what I'll try to clear up here. I'm just shy of 6 feet tall. Yes, I have long hair which I usually keep tied back because it's easier when I'm working. I tend to wear my trenchcoat everywhere. Most people shy away from me while I'm wearing it. They don't realize that it's waterproof and it has a removable liner, which makes it a great jacket all year round. I also like to wear darker colors because they go better with my generally pale skin. I drive a truck, not because " I'm a man", but because I needed a vehicle that I could afford that also had four wheel drive. I needed the 4wd because the woman I loved at the time lived in a steep area that normally gets pretty bad in the winter. I currently live on my parent's farm. NO I am not a "farm boy". We moved out here from New Jersey when I was in middle school. I help out around here whenever I can, but this was not my choice of lifestyle. I like watching anime and I go to at least one convention every year. I also cosplay every time I go. Is it goofy? Yes. Do I love it? Yes. I like the shows and getting to hang out with ten thousand people from around the world who all have similar, and yet unique, interests is always an amazing experience. I'm a criminal justice major. I have studied a lot of different material and am moderately versed in several social and physical sciences. I enjoy spending my days very relaxed. Whenever I'm not at work, I prefer to sit back and relax. I enjoy physical activity, but I'm not a huge fitness buff. I like taking life at a more relaxed speed. I try to go to the gym or do my workout routine at the house at least twice a week. The biggest thing I'd like to explain is the weirdest thing about me. I'm a student of human nature. By this, what I mean is that I spend some of my time analyzing my experiences with people. I study how people live their lives. I study the decisions they make and the reasoning behind them. I have learned how to predict how people will react to multiple scenarios. It may sound strange but it makes it easier to tell who I should and shouldn't let in my life. The fatal flaw with this is that it makes me want to break the normal reaction and has caused me to take emotional risks that usually lead to me getting hurt. A lot. I just want a chance to be happy without being lied to, betrayed, and left alone to pick up the pieces that manage to survive the ordeal. That just gets old.
*Had to add this part in now that everything has happened. I just got out of a very serious relationship and am not looking to jump straight into a new relationship. That doesn't mean I would deny myself the chance, it's just not what I'm immediately searching for. If it happens then I most certainly won't complain. I just want to take life one step at a time right now and I hope that anyone who wants to get to know me can respect that.
