Kinda on the spot here. A bit weird, I'm sure you felt that way filling out your "self-summary..." I'll do my best.
I'm 27 years old, looking for a serious relationship, friends and penpals. I've been told that I have a good sense of humor (albeit dark at times), and that I write well. I write for a living, and for fun. I've also been called an eccentric ... but I believe they meant it in a good way.
I'm looking for a wholesome girl who knows what she wants in life.
So I work for a public relations firm, and do creative writing on the side. Reading is very nice as well ... important.
I like to write poetry, fiction, non-fiction, current events, military analysis. I actually have a poetry manuscript I would like to have published. The poems themselves tend to be rather weird, dark ... I use an experimental style that mixes free-flow verse with light prose.
I'm studying at USF Sarasota-Manatee for essentially a double major in International Relations and History. What am I going to do with it? Perhaps work in the intelligence field, department of defense, teach ... I don't know.
But I would like to be a professor, and teach about these things. A lot of schooling would be required though.
I'm a Catholic-Christian, and I take it very seriously. I'm currently trying to find a local group of Christians in their 20s to associate with, as I need to be more sociable.
I used to party quite a bit when I was younger, but I don't anymore. I don't like bars, don't like clubs. I have a small circle of close friends.
Recently I've become the designated driver for some friends of mine, so it provides a good opportunity for social interaction.
Another thing, I've had an account here before, and it's my belief that at least half (being generous here) of the women on here are looking for an ego-boost, not a substantive relationship.
Along that same vein, when I message you, what am I supposed to say? It's absurd. Think about it. "Hi, what's up?" That doesn't work. Am I supposed to scour your profile and take notes? It's awkward. This set-up is awkward - it's all text. No body language, no voice inflection, etc.
So please give me a break on the initial message. Frequently I just ramble anyway.
I know I'm rather strange, and anyone who'd want to talk with me or get to know me would also need to be on the strange side. That's how it's always been.
Also, if I message you and you live 5,000 miles away, it's because I'm curious about you, your part of the world, and how you view the world, given your different culture and worldview.
I like staying up all night and feeling mildly sleep-deprived the next day, then laying down in the mid-morning to sleep through the sunshine's adoring, miserable rays.
