I enjoy hitting the gym six days a week, shopping at designer
boutiques, and cooking nothing but gourmet meals. Between all this,
I try to make it to counseling for my compulsive lying
I'm a pretty decent, genuine guy just looking to meet other
non-psychotic people. Friends are cool - who doesn't need more
people to split bottles of wine with? Casual dates are my main goal
right now. Perhaps more, if I find the right guy. I'm not sure what
"the right guy" is but I have a pretty specific list of what it's
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated college in 2009. Philosophy degree. Yeah, just lighting
a bunch of money on fire wasn't slow and painful enough for me. On
the plus side, I have a very broad knowledge base and can
intelligently discuss or bullshit about pretty much anything. I
have a job that, while I can't say I love it, I can't really
complain about either. It pays the bills, and allows me to travel
anywhere I want to go. I will probably do some type of grad school,
to add some practical skills to my resume, but I'd be happy at the
company I'm with indefinitely. Also, you can tell I'm a typical
Capricorn, life is synonymous to work for me.
Outside of that, I have a large (at least for my introverted self)
number of close friends who really mean the world to me. And I just
helped my best friend transition into motherhood with the birth of
my godson. It was an awesome and harrowing experience.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Seriously, I'm phenomenal.
Listening. It's what I do for a living.
My remaining talents are best disclosed on the third to fifth date.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the smidgen of social anxiety disorder I have. I can be
very shy and tense when first meeting someone. But I generally warm
up very quickly if I feel comfortable. People generally go from
"he's so quiet" to "did he just say that?" in about 30 minutes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I generally read more nonfiction than fiction. I like David
Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs. Otherwise, I'm reading some dry
academic text on religion or politics. I read classic novels out of
obligation more than enjoyment.
Movies - So, the gayest thing about me is probably that I've never
seen a musical I didn't love. They're my guilty pleasure. I
generally like dramas (Doubt) or comedies (Juno). I don't like
horror movies or romances, except for the Notebook which always
make me boo-hoo. Like anySouthern gay man should be able to, I can
recite virtually the entire script for Steel Magnolias and Fried
TV - Mad Men, The Office, Parks and Rec, Big Bang Theory
Then the old shows like the Jeffersons, Golden Girls, All in the
Family etc. You know, the stuff from when Nick at Nite was
Music -I would say my musical taste is more broad than strong. I
can listen to pretty much anything. My Pandora jumps from Haydn to
Frank Sinatra to Madonna to MGMT so I can't really answer this
Food - my favorite food to cook is Italian. But I'm not a picky
eater at all, will pretty much try anything and like all types of
The six things I could never do without
Red wine and/or whiskey
Professional grade cookware
A comfortable bed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going and how I'm getting there.
Ways to improve myself and keep learning.
The chores I need to do.
Food money and sex. Those are always in the back of my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely hanging out with friends at the bar or cooking them
dinner at my place. If not, I'm either working or enjoying an
introvert night: a bottle of wine and a book or movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The surest way to be a bore is to tell everything.
You should message me if
If you realize how awesome I am and want to get to know me better.
