I am a liberal free thinker forced to exist in a conservative world. I come from a world of advanced mathematics in multiple dimensions and the impossible quest for "perfection," yet I prefer and embrace all that is "imperfect" in the world. I like tattoos, piercings, art, music, free expression and Andrew WK. The outdoors and the mountains are where I belong, and desire to spend my time whenever I can. I like to go on adventures, yet sometimes it's nice to be surrounded by familiarity.
I am probably best described as an extroverted-introvert. If I'm with people I know I'm usually wide open and making you laugh your ass off, but in new surroundings with new people I can be rather reserved. I've been told I have no filter, but I'm self-aware enough to know that not everyone appreciates my "anything goes" sense of humor and liberal use of the word "fuck." That being said, it usually takes a couple of hang outs before I open up to a new person... but once I do, I'll either become one of your favorite and most trusted people you've ever met, or you will want nothing to do with me. As far as the whole "kids" thing goes, at this point I'm not overly excited at the prospect of having them, so if you're dead set on having some chilluns' I'm probably not your guy. I am very independent, 100% self-reliant, and extremely loyal to those who I am close to in life. I'm not a prolific dater, by any stretch. I'm very busy, have a low tolerance for bullshit, and lets be honest, dating around is a fucking pain in the ass. I don't have to have a person in my life, but I very much would like to... hence why I'm here.
When I finally return home, I cook an epic 7 course gourmet dinner, light a single scented candle, romance myself carnally, and go to bed only to do it all over again the next day... like Groundhogs Day... only with less Bill Murray and more masturbation. (Bill Murry, if you're reading this, and I don't know why you wouldn't be, lets hang out.)
In addition to my "8-5" job, I own my own small business, specializing in custom metal fabrication, restoration, and customization of Land Rovers. I'm definitely a guy who knows how to build shit. So if you're looking for a guy that is always clean, dapper, and considers building Ikea furniture an accomplishment, I am probably not your guy....if you can handle your man getting dirty and spending the better part of his day wearing Carhartt work pants and steel-toe boots, we might be on to something...
I'm also the bassist in a new Charlotte heavy metal band (psssst look at my IG feed) So if you like talking metal, hit me up. I've been playing bass for quite a while, played in a few bands... stopped for a while, and then realized just how much I missed playing music live so I'm back in the game.
I LOVE me some food. Like for serious. Indian, Vietnamese, basically anything ethnic or awesome. I've been told I know all the good dives and hole in the wall places.....and I know how to cook, I'm currently teaching myself the secrets to Indian cooking....and I'm actually an obnoxiously healthy eater.
As far as TV goes, I'm really bad at watching shows and following series, I've heard all about GoT and Walking Dead, but just have a cursory knowledge of them... That being said, I do like Rick and Morty, Aquateen, Frisky Dingo, Bob's Burgers, South Park, Daily Show, Archer, River Monsters, Venture Bros, and more! Read that "and more!" part in the Monster Truck Announcer voice.
Why I apparently should be living in Asheville or Durham/Carrboro/Raleigh... according to my OKC possible matches, this seems to be where are the beautiful, liberal, adventurous, intelligent ladies are these days... sorry Charlotte girls, ya'll really need to step up your game and quit being Republicans.
You like epic road trips.
You've kept track of how many masturbation references I've made in my profile.
You are honest, genuine and not looking to play games. Been there, done that, don't have time for the bullshit.
You want a real partner in crime.
I've come to terms with the fact that given the right situation I can be open to certain forms of non-monogamy/polyamory (sorry mom), but I'm after a real partner in crime, monogamous or otherwise, and I'm not looking to be someones side piece.
You are Bill Murray.
