I’m a fairly down-to-earth 30-something gay guy looking to find something meaningful in another person, be that a friend or something more. I seem to come across as somewhat charming in a geeky, inarticulate, stumbles over the right thing to say kinda’ way. OK, let’s face it, I’m a terrible conversationalist. I lovingly refer to myself as a "social moron" because I'm the guy who never knows what to say when he meets people, so I'll actually blurt out something like, "I don't know what to say right now," just to fill an awkward silence. Strangely, though, that seems to break the ice rather well. I'm also the guy at work who tries to make everyone laugh, or at least smile through their day. I live on tangents, because they make a conversation exciting. And can I just say that I find it rather amusing that I'm a 5% enemy match for myself? I guess I'd better watch my back. Oh, wait...
I’m a bit reserved when you first meet me, but that’s just a ruse to cover the loud jokester that hides underneath. Too old to be a kid, too young to grow up, I’m the guy with the knowledge and maturity of an adult who still manages to view much of the world with naïve wonderment. Don’t get me wrong, I have a quick wit, sharp tongue, and sarcasm is my first language, but I still love splashing through puddles when it rains and climbing walls and buildings I know I shouldn’t.
I like to be mentally stimulated. A good debate or little known facts are the way to my heart, but then, so is a good story. I like horror movies, true crime, video games, puzzles, reading, drawing, writing, you know, creative stuff. I have a BA in Psychology, an Associates in Graphic Design, and a design portfolio from the Creative Circus. Oh, and I babble incessantly, though you’ve probably gleamed that at this point.
I am tangental, caring to a fault, and oddly endearing.
I'm also trying to whip myself back into shape. It's been a while since I had a normal gym routine, and I'd like to be healthier and shave off a few pounds. I'll likely never be a Men's Health cover guy or anything (I'm never going to have visible abdominal muscles. It's a genetic fact.), but I'm trying to stay active and healthy.
Oh, physically? I dunno', I guess my face isn't all that bad. I'm not gorgeous, but my face is probably my best feature. My friends have also complimented me on my eyes before, so I'll go with that, too. I have kind eyes. Kind, blue eyes. And more often than not, stubble, because I'm lazy and don't shave regularly.
Oh, God, movies? We'll be here for hours! I'll just list a few that come to mind. Urbania, Trick 'r Treat, But I'm a Cheerleader, The Ring, The Exorcist, Mean Girls, When Harry Met Sally, Hellraiser, Trick, The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green, East Side Story, Halloween, DragonHeart, Ever After, 10 Things I Hate About You, Twelfth Night, Clueless, Dogma, Labyrinth, the Dark Crystal, Mirror Mask, Pan's Labyrinth, Stranger Than Fiction, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, Underworld, Underworld Evolution, the Covenant, Forrest Gump, Moulin Rouge, Scream, Can't Hardly Wait...
Music: I listen to all sorts, but I guess I'm mostly in the "alternative rock" group. I love Sister Hazel, although their newest CD wasn't as great as Chasing Daylight or Fortress. I'm a big fan of Maroon 5 as well. Vertical Horizon's another one, and Matchbox 20. And I love every song on Death Cab for Cutie's Plans CD. I must admit, I do like a little Howie Day and Kelly Clarkson, as well. Every Avenue, Forever the Sickest Kid, Simple Plan, The Cab, Pink, stuff that's catchy, fast, and loud, especially when I'm driving home late at night and in need of something to keep me conscious. Or when I'm speeding, which is often, because I'm nearly always either a couple minutes late or right on time. Like I said, my tastes vary.
2) Horror movies
5) the Internet
6) You, potentially. Message me to find out. ;-)
Otherwise, I like to draw and write, so I'm often thinking about a story. Well, when I'm not worried about the future.
