The features: I'm extremely responsible, well-educated, and motivated, with a very good job. I have been a home owner for four years and am handy with most maintenance. I have interesting hobbies and fun, beautiful friends. I am a challenging conversationalist. I keep my body in shape for me, no one else, which means that I always will. I am incredible with money. I paid off my student loans in two years and live at a level that allows me to save and plan. I am a genuinely curious person who doesn't have to fake interest in other people to sound polite. And finally, as far as I know, I'm not bad to look at!
The bugs: I'm not quite six feet tall. My humor is dry, and I'm not especially great in nightclubs. I've dealt with depression my whole life (and there go 90% of you.) It's under control and you likely wouldn't notice right away if I hadn't told you. I have a cadence to my speech and body language that people often interpret as cavalier and arrogant, although I don't feel that way in my heart. I've slept with a lot of women, so you'd have to be OK with or get over that.
Still with me? Great! Let's keep going...
I'm also becoming more forthright with others and honest with myself. I know exactly what I want, though I don't know if I'll ever find it in this city. I've gone on a hundred first dates and I'm finding a culture paralyzed by choice.
City of God, Fight Club, LA Confidential
Breaking Bad, Bojack Horseman, Mad Men
David Bowie, The National, PJ Harvey,
Put me in the woods with a vice grip, a roll of duct tape and a can of WD-40 and I'll figure out a way to survive.
All I want is for people to accept me for who I pretend to be.
I don't know if I necessarily even need monogamy, but I do want to feel loved. Just communicate with me. It's ok if the communication comes in the form of "We're not exclusive" or "I would like to be exclusive" or whatever is on your mind; but I don't like surprises of convenience, and I don't do asymmetric relationships.
