Today is not that day.
They say "There are two mantras in life: 'Yuck' and 'Yum'." I try hard to be about the latter.
Truthfully I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for, but I have a pretty good idea of who. I know a lot of people want someone who's setting out with the intention of a relationship; personally I don't think it makes much sense to put the cart before the horse. I'm not here to waste anyone's time or mine and I'm genuinely interested in meeting someone great.
I want to spend time with someone smart, fun, funny, and kind. Someone who is interested and interesting. Someone who is paying attention to the world and isn't afraid to share their opinion on it. Who's not afraid be sincere and knows herself well.
Books: I recently discovered Overdrive and it is amazing. Classically I love SciFi and epic fantasy like A Song of Ice and Fire and Harry Potter. I'm always down for some pop sci and human origins stuff and some graphic novels like Maus and Fun Home and The Sandman.
Movies: This should be a whole discussion but let's say my top 3 are Amelie, Drive, and In Bruges. Calvary and Kings of Summer get honorable mentions.
TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Community, Rick and Morty. Lately: Catastrophe, Broadchurch, Broad City
Music: I find Rufus Wainwright's version of "Hallelujah" to be the superior version and when I hear "bum bum bum ba da da bum" I get excited for "Under Pressure" not "Ice Ice Baby". Like with people my musical taste is hard to explain but it's fairly specific and I know it when I see it.
Sometimes when I'm browsing OKC profiles I'll think "Cheer up, weirdos! This is supposed to be fun."
