I consider myself fairly outgoing and confident (though actually an introvert), friendly, and quick-witted. I hold my friends/relationships to a high standard, which leaves me with a small handful, but my generosity with those whom I love is boundless. Humanity and I have a love-hate relationship... I would like to like people, but too many of them suck. I have been dubbed "the friendliest misanthrope." ...but you can call me B00b13Dr46oN. (...if you don't get it you should watch this). I value honesty and believe that communication is the key to any successful relationship, romantic or otherwise.
In a committed (polyamorISH) relationship with this amazing human ----> Tronx10tothe6th
(Personal definition/explanation: We're open to non-monogamous relationships and to people who are in non-monogamous relationships, but we don't prefer to date separately.)
We look monogamous most of the time, but we have had girlfriend before and would really like to date again.
I also just went back to school, so that's a big part of my life, now.
-Being cold in the middle of the summer.
-Picking out awesome t-shirts for other people.
-Overbooking myself and then going crazy because I have too much work.
-Failing at normal humor
-Winning at really offensive humor
-Giving good hugs
-Making my profile sound chipper and positive in spite of the fact that I am almost entirely disenamored of the online dating scene.
Non-fiction: Books about Dance, Creativity, Sustainability, Survivalism, and DIY Handbooks
Fiction: Haven't read much fiction lately, but I'm most interested in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Classics. Stuck in 1984 again... I swear this book doesn't end. I enjoy the dystopian social commentary, but christ is it boring me. I'm determined to finish it one day.
Movies/Series: Anything that stimulates me intellectually, but also makes sense. I have a soft spot for social commentary in any form and love dystopian future/sci-fi. Loved Fight Club hated Inception. Honestly, though, I'll watch anything once. Other favorites include: Firefly, Braveheart, the LoTR trilogy, The Martian, Armageddon, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride, "V" for Vendetta, Dogma, Patch Adams, Pacific Rim, Tropic Thunder, Borat, Moulin Rouge, Titanic, and Babylon 5. Full Metal Alchemist, Fight Club, Die Hard, Archer, The Dark Knight, Ghost in the Shell, the Bourne trilogy.... I have seen all StarTrek ever produced. Currently watching through (and REALLY enjoying) House of Cards on Netflix.
...(cuddling and watching shows/movies is one of my favorite activities).
Music: My library has a wide range of genres from country to rap to industrial to symphonic metal to down-tempo trip hop. My favorite artists are as follows: Evanescence, Linkin Park, Fort Minor, Powerman5000, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, Hanzel und Gretyl, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Within Temptation, Nightwish, The Glitch Mob, Massive Attack, Jonathan Coulton...and others. Recently, Lana del Rey, Florence and the Machine, Halsey, and Meg Meyers have been showing up on my Pandora station.
Food: I'll eat just about anything, but I'm not really into seafood or spicy foods. My absolute favorite foods are steak and cheese; I'm a glutton for casomorphins.
Games: Portal, Mirror's Edge, Artemis, Braid, GTA 4, Minecraft, StarCraft and StarCraft II, Sniper Elite, Puzzle Kombat, Age of Empires (Rise of Rome expansion), chess, Magic the Gathering, Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Cards Against Humanity...
"Fallor ergo sum"
"Live and be happy. Do no harm. Leave the world as good as you found it. (Or better, if possible)."
~My personal creed 2012-present
(the remainder are redacted for brevity)
Today, I decided that my favorite things are:
Going out for coffee.
Long night-time walks in the Summer.
Spending time with friends around the fire-pit.
Cuddles (from humans and from kitties).
Quietly appreciating beautiful sunsets.... and
Really awesome thunderstorms.
Market economics as they relate to online dating. How hard it is to be a "buyer" rather than a "supplier." I've lived on both sides and it's made me very aware of why things are the way they are and also the disconnect between men and women when it comes to this arena. (For instance, women want personalized messages, but don't respond to most of the messages that they receive - even the personalized ones - and rarely message first. Men send out messages, don't get responses, and realize that it's less depressing and more effective to create a really good copy/paste so that they can reach more people with less effort and emotional investment).
How, when I first joined this site, the internet was still in an age when people would say "brb" if they were going to be "afk" and not just leave you hanging for hours, wondering if they'd ever be back.
I dream about traveling around the US and the rest of the world, seeing extraordinary natural sites, meeting interesting people. I also fantasize about settling down in a small home, living sustainably off-the-grid, supported by nature and ingenuity. These are both things that I would like to do with my life.
Potentially listening to "Tales from the Afternow" in the dark. .....not really, I just wanted to share that link. If you're a fan of dystopian future/sci-fi and you like audiodramas you should check it out.
It's not what I'm here for, but I could really use a wife. I suck at it - I rarely cook, I hate cleaning, and it will be a cold day in hell before I'm actually on top of my laundry. I'd make an awesome husband, though. :P
...you're the kind of person who thinks that camping out of a van for a week is an adventure.
...you are not opposed to meeting up soon-ish rather than later-ish
...you're the kind of person that takes *some* initiative in relationships. (I understand that you're busy, but if we have been talking regularly for a week or two and you still haven't ever initiated contact, I'm going to assume that you aren't interested in me, and I'll let it drop).
*Persons with children** and/or religion need not apply.*
**I have no interest in being involved in the parenting of your offspring and I have no intention of having any of my own. That being said, if your child is capable of expressing itself in paragraph form, we may still get along.
Say hi. I promise I'm easier to talk to than you think.
