Sensitive, loyal, assertive and smart guy here. INTJ personality type. Bird and fish person. Love aviation, technology and science stuff (marine biology, astronomy, etc). I have lots artistic tendencies in writing and illustration. I do a lot of thinking and creative pursuits most of the time. I'm a Christian, am a geek and a nerd, and obsess over fandoms, video games, tech and science (and other things along those lines.) I travel a lot when I can. I'm a little old-fashioned as I was born in the 80's, so I have an inherent love for things back in the day like floppy disks, F-14 Tomcats, The Magic School Bus and the Galileo probe.
Rural Tennessee transplant living in Queens with my aunt and uncle for a bit to get away from the Southern lifestyle and to meet new people. Life "down South" has been extremely stifling and isolating the past fourteen years; sure you only pay $25 for a license plate registration, but aside from wonderful mountain scenery, there's little to be desired for an urban-loving Indian like me. Everyone goes y'all and ain't, are either rednecks or Daddy's rich ranch girl and most have no common or smart sense like using tech or thinking non-Southern things are ungodly, etc. It may be a great place for a married, established couple to go live at the right populated spot, but not a foreign twenty-something that doesn't go y'all/ain't and prefers a museum over a country cookout. There is very little options to date much less find a good relationship with someone of my background.
It's annoying, I'm looking for somewhere else to put down stakes and hopefully find something else in life that I wasn't finding in a bunch of cow pastures.
Considering most of the people I get along with are online and come from different states or countries, I'm hoping to actually meet friends who aren't going to criticize me because I don't speak in a Southern accent or that "I ain't like them", and actually date someone who isn't a Southern Belle or a redneck. So hence I made my big migration here. Hence please Big Apple, don't let me down.
On that note, thank you NYC for having other things to do than just country stuff like horseback riding. Nobody here in Tennessee does anything else except hike, camp and ride horses outside.
That being said, looking for something serious, long-term and that can lead to marriage. And yes, while NYC is temporary, I don't plan on spending the rest of my life in rural Appalachian land, and most likely not the Big Apple either. It'll be some city somewhere with no less than 250,000 people. Orlando, Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville, something like that. Just as a warning.
Ideally, I would like a college-educated partner that knows how to live real life (keep good track of their health, know how to handle life responsibilities), but have a love of video gaming, has technical knowledge and have an imagination to dream. Especially desire someone close to my age.
On that subject, I do apologize if you have multiple pets or dogs; aside from an inherent fear of dogs because most everyone doesn't obey leash laws in Tennessee, I am extremely allergic to body fluids of both dogs and cats. Dog slobber in my face or my skin coming in contact with a couch with cat pee will send me vomiting to no end for 2-3 days. However I usually do okay with one small, well-behaved cat if kept well. Because of this, I currently own zero animals. Otherwise, sorry about that. :/
I currently float between large city centers, looking for a place to settle and better job opportunities.
I'm also a self-published indie author and game developer, so when not doing the first paragraph, I'm writing, blogging, doing art and developing games.
And I help with the family business now and then (it's an online health foods store, relax. >.>)
*Adapting to controls on a vehicle (Newtype much?)
*Being funny but not spazzing out like Markiplier when playing a game
*Telling you about outer space
*Flight and spacelight simulators (hey, comes from actual past flight experience!)
And that I'm probably not dressed in the retro/hipster-ish style of a typical millenial. Tend to look like someone off a Daughtry album cover half the time.
Games: Indie story and adventure games, along with strategy and some action in there. Starcraft 2, Age of Empires, Supreme Commander along with things like Ori and the Blind Forest, ABZU, Oxenfree. A few AAA stuff like Elite: Dangerous, Halo and Overwatch. PC is my platform of choice, though I do dabble in Xbox now and then.
Movies: Independence Day, Apollo 13, Secret of Kells, Pacific Rim, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Lord of the Rings, Summer Wars, and I, Robot. I also like Pixar stuff.
Shows: Don't watch a lot of modern stuff nowadays. Am a casual anime fan. Stuff like Gundam, Person of Interest, Stargate SG-1 and documentaries get my interest (I will occasionally poke at Doctor Who.) My kid side loves cartoons from back in the day, especially stuff like Arthur, Lloyd in Space and the like.
Music: Basically 3 types; heavy EDM/techno, alternative rock/metal (Linkin Park, Papa Roach), or quiet melodies like Enya or video game music. Deep house, Japanese pop and European dance/electronica are my favorites. I keep an extremely far distance from rap, hip-hop/R&B and country. Bluegrass is especially irritable and I avoid it at all costs.
Food: Italian, Chinese, Indian and most vegetable dishes. I really am fond of very spicy curry, fried chicken and lo mein noodles. I don't touch pork, most beef or certain seafood in any way, shape or form.
-iPad/iPhone (nope, not a hipster. Sorry)
-Something to read that's astronomy or aviation related
I also think about the future in terms of technology and development: what can be implemented to make the world more efficient, what new tech lays over the horizon and what will impact the way we lives our everyday lives. NYC already has impressed me a bit with things like the mini billboards on the sidewalk. Don't have any of those in Tennessee.
Will I go out on Friday? Yes! Just have a great event or be an awesome friend to have something interesting planned.
As much as I love the Transit Authority, I know next to diddly-squat to get to Brooklyn or Manhattan via subway. OTL
You'll definitely grab my attention a lot faster if you use these (better yet recognize them): XD, rofl, :3, hehe, delish, complainy, lmao, etc.
Oh, and please don't just say "Hey" or "Hi". I most certainly say a lot more than that when I send a message to someone.
If you don't hear from me in a few days, I'm probably not interested. Otherwise, takes me a bit to get back to people.
Do message me if:
-You like video games and play them
-You like art
-You don't mind trips to places like the museum, bookstore, coffee shop or library.
-Talking about outer space or the ocean deep doesn't bore you
-You know how to reset the wi-fi router and know some tech stuff
-You're young at heart
-There's at least an 90% match
-Someone who's obese, curvy, chubby or a BBW
-Someone who's super liberal: Being a hipster, ghosting, being anti-gun, wears thick-framed plastic glasses and tights all the time, can't speak on a phone, etc.
-Someone who can't spell. Know the difference between you're/your/you are, capitalize your letters, through isn't threw, etc. I didn't travel 670 miles just to meet someone who spells like some hillbilly in a shack back home with no cell phone signal.
-A Baptist (I know NYC is diverse and big, but just in case)
-Someone who drinks beer and often (I drink wine but only now and then. I don't go to clubs and bars)
-Southern; again, I moved here to meet different, new people with a different mindset and outlook from where I came from. I'm not interested in meeting someone from my neighborhood spouting y'all/ain't and having the attitude of your typical Southern and/or country girl.
Just be a sensible, fit-bodied, open-minded, non-Southern, non-hipster that's not a crazy animal lady and we should get along.
