Lurk me, I don't care >_>


I can pretty much guarantee that you will not like me. Everyone on here seems so happy, energetic, and outgoing, with balanced lives and spirited personalities, and has been to almost every country, and on top of it, you're pretty much like, all beautiful. How are you all single and using a dating app? That should be reserved for us unbalanced, awkward, emotionally-crippled folk. Okay, let's do this. :: deep breath ::

I'm looking for someone with a weirdness that's compatible with mine ^-^ Someone with shared interests who wants to talk about their day, who wants a best friend to be semi-adventurous with or just play board games with, maybe do something creative together. I'm looking for something real and long-lasting. I want a partner. Let's do more than make small talk- let's talk about heart break, what haunts you, something not so vanilla.

I'm a socially awkward, mostly quiet dork who likes cartoons and games. I'm a little introverted (and not in the cool, mysterious kinda' way! n_n), but I've been trying to be more outgoing. Personality-wise, I'm pretty easy going and relaxed. I'm somewhere between appreciating adorable, cute things like Disney and kittens, AND liking ultra-violent action movies with bad plots. Or no plots even.

I like chai lattes because they taste like x-mas. Autumn is my favorite season, I like hoody weather.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time at L'Oreal as an assistant engineer (so plus, you might get occasional free shampoo and makeup) with a looooong commute, so my days are pretty long. I typically wake up at 4:45a and get back home around 5:30p x___x I try to walk a few miles and get some exercise in a few times a week. I'm not exactly fit, but I've gone from 265 to 192, and I'm still going.

I moved back with my parents after we lost my younger brother. I know that's an automatic turn-off for some people, but as much as I don't get along with my family, I do kind of care about them and they do come first. Losing my brother really changed my outlook on life and I'm trying to worry less about how self-conscious I am and live a little more outside my comfort zone. I don't really know too many people. It's all been a pretty big adjustment! But I think it's about time to start apartment hunting again, and time to start looking for that special someone to one day share it with.

There have been a lot of challanges- thankfully, you're never too old to hide under the covers. Or maybe you are, but that sure doesn't stop me. I know everyone has their baggage and has been heart-broken. And I'm not perfect, and I'm not the best-looking ( I know, you're so turned on right now, It's okay, you can admit it.), but i'm honest and a romantic, and I try my best to make others feel appreciated.

I like to doodle, it's my constant but it's just a hobby and I'm not that good. I would really like to make friends who pursue creative interests in their down time (or just like to watch dorky things, I'm not picky!). I'm learning how to sew, /trying/ to be less fat, and trying to learn to be comfortable in my own skin (It's going slowly). I am a total WIP.
I’m really good at
Um...I dunno, listening? No, that's lame. (I mean, I'm not a super great or even mildly decent conversationalist, but I do like hearing people talk, the weirder the better). I like atypical people who are open-minded.

Srsly tho, I have no clue. So, being clueless maybe? I started trying my hand sewing. Yeah, that's right, I said sewing. With like, a needle and thread and stuff. Pretty studly, if I do say so myself. Just little things like pillows and character patches for now. I want to be a better cook, learn how to airbrush, practice more with acrylics, learn anatomy properly, learn how to crochet, and I just started experimenting with wood burning. I'm shy and on the quiet side, but I like to try new things.

I like to think I'm a pretty open-minded and empathetic person (most of the time), but I know I still have a long way to go to being a more decent human being.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sarcasm comes standard.

I can't even begin to guess. My resting bitchface? I hope it's not that I'm a chunk :x My bad skin? Who knows, maybe they think I'm awesome :3

Maybe it's my eyes, deep and dark like a tar pit that murders dinosaurs. Actually, people usually comment on how quiet I am, or tell me to smile more, so that I guess. I'm just really shy at first, I promise I get more obnoxious and offputting once I warm up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like non-fiction, fiction, fantasy, drama, sci-fi, essays, angst, a little bit of everything is my favorite flavor <3

Pet Peeve: Why do people write things like "water" and "air" in this section? Like, that tells me nothing about you as a person, other than that you are, in fact, a person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the dinosaurs died, why seeing other people be miserable makes me so happy, why everything is so expensive, why my cat suddenly seems to like me okay after ignoring me for about a year.

If I could ever go back to school for artz.

How 40 million people use dating apps and I'm still lonely.

If there's such a thing as "the one".
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing my grocery shopping n_n exciting, I know. Don't judge me, it's not busy on Friday nights! Have I mentioned I'm a major introvert? But that's why I'm here, I guess. Also, I like pancakes, and breakfast in general. Which has nothing to do with Friday night, I s'pose. Though breakfast for dinner is pretty awesome. I'm not really a bar person. Are there any bookstores that serve beer?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have an OKCupid page? That I've got a creepy side but at least am self-aware about it?

And now let's throw in some insightful, identity-defining quotes for good measure, courtesy of Mr. Augusten Burroughs:

“Although I was able to maintain a pleasant expression, I was mentally throwing up in her face.”

“It’s a wonder I’m even alive. Sometimes I think that. I think that I can’t believe I haven’t killed myself. But there’s something in me that just keeps going on. I think it has something to do with tomorrow, that there is always one, and that everything can change when it comes.”

“I saw a monkey walking on a leash and thought it was an ugly foreign child.”

-if you're more interested in hearts than parts
-You wanna' talk nerdy to me <3
-if it's September 19th at 1:46 am, this is non-negotiable!
-You like making art and listening to music
-if you're a criminal and want to hatch a scheme
-if you have any information on what really happened to the dinosaurs and their current whereabouts (don't you dare try and tell me they're birds now!)
-if you're jaded and full of disdain for the world, pure and unbridled.
-if you can teach me something, sewing, piano, math even! Well, not math. Anything but math actually.
-if you just want someone to chill with and watch a movie together. You should def message me then.
-when all is said and done, you'd like to have made a positive dent in the universe.

And yes, I'm aware that I wrote entirely too much and no one will ever read any of it. I'm complicated like that.
The two of us
