My self-summary
Born in Baltimore. Raised in the boonies. Now I'm stuck in Lala Land.

I'm David. I guess I'm just looking for someone who fits. This seems like a strange way to do it but it's worth a shot. I'm more of a listener than a talker at first...although if I warm up to you quickly that may not be the case. Anyway...drop me a line if you want to say hello or hang out.

I'm pretty certain I need someone younger in my life. Most of the people I know can't keep up anymore. This is a generalization for sure, but feel free to prove me wrong.

I'm also a night owl. And I smoke too much. Not always, but mostly. I'm genuine to a fucking fault. It's probably my biggest one. Anyway, I stay up too late and I wish I could've hung out with Charles Bukowski. Please put that in perspective. Thanks. And seriously, say hi. Even if we're not meant to be we can talk right?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a musician attempting to make that a full time gig.

Temping. Working. Doing what I need to do to keep going.
I’m really good at
Singing. Playing the guitar. - Ryan Adams - Burning Jet Black

I may also talk your ears off if you give me a little bit. My life may not be the most exciting life EVER, but I've got some good stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I should probably have something to say here...but I really just don't know. People think I'm shy. It's not entirely true, considering I sing in a band. I guess one on one it takes me a bit to open up. A cheesy quote I like: "It's better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."

Books: Catcher in the Rye. Ham on Rye. The Great Gatsby. Most anything by Bukowski or Kerouac.

Food: I'm game to try most things.
Six things I could never do without
My guitars....that's four things right there. Not overly attached to my possessions in general. Maybe my cell phone and computer...although I hate having to rely on them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...where I'd rather be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a show or hanging out with friends. Probably staying up later than I should when I'm playing a brunch set at Primitivo the next morning. I hate to sit at home on the weekends.

I don't reserve going out for the weekends either.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Eh. I had something posted here. It was dumb.
Let's get to know one another first.
You should message me if
we have some things in common. Also, if you'd like to chat or meet.
The two of us
