My self-summary
I'm a small retail shop owner, a single dad, an INFP, a nerd, a linguist, and a book-addict with no intention of recovering. I have been to thirteen different countries, and lived in two of them. I love languages and history; I read a ton of non-fiction but prefer movies for my fiction. I love terrible movies, especially horror, sci-fi, and fantasy. I like meeting new people, but tend to forget that and stay in instead. I can be a know-it-all; I try to limit it.
That said, I will never send pictures of my penis to you. Sad, but it seems that disclaimer is necessary.
I’m really good at
Cooking, analyzing languages, history, and politics, reading body language, listening, remembering trivia
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a fairly big guy; almost 6 foot with broad shoulders, so I look bigger than I am. My eyebrows and jaw are rather brutal looking; the beard and mustache, despite making me look like a movie villain, are there to soften my face. I have been told that my eyes are very intense looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lord of the Rings, Gorky Park, and a huge pile of really dry, boring history books that I love.
Movies: Almost any sci-fi, fantasy, or horror, whether good or bad (bad ones are fun to laugh at). But I usually avoid gore- it's a cheap, lazy way to get a scare, so it is sooo over-used. I like other movies, too: Fight Club, The Fisher King, and Men Who Stare at Goats stand out.
Shows: Crime dramas, Bones, Grimm. I have all the old Buffy on dvd.
Music: I have an eclectic set of tastes- hard rock, classic rock, classical, folk
Food: Black Bean soup, surf'n turf, ceasar salads, lamb in just about any form (I have a wet rub for a rack of ribs that is to die for).
The six things I could never do without
My son, my books, my cats, my family, my friends, my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Living my life to the fullest"?!? Really?!? That is just no help at all. What does that even mean? "No, I am not living my life to the fullest, I prefer to completely squander it". Nope, makes no sense. Guys love to say, "I'm a nice guy"; another useless expression. Everybody can claim to be "nice"; the only information in that phrase is that he identifies as male. I'm pretty sure Hitler thought he was a nice guy, too ("I'm a vegetarian and I'm great with dogs. Yeah, I did some genocide, but, you know, what do you want? Nobody's perfect.")
In other words, I squander my life thinking about these things way too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either taking care of my son, working, or hanging out with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I deny everything, including the veracity of this statement.
You should message me if
The above sounds appealing. I have been (sometimes brutally) honest in answering the questions; maybe more than is good for me. Be honest with me, and we should get along fabulously.
