I am looking for someone to hangout with and have a good time. If it leads to more, I'd be open to the possibility. I am intelligent, compassionate, and opinionated, so, ladies, if that appeals to you, drop me a message!
Btw, if you find me interesting and notice I am online, do not be afraid to IM me on here. I enjoy having conversations with people.
I guess my self summary is incomplete. My name is Joe. I am a bit of a geek and am a major professional wrestling fan. I love having long discussions on politics, religion, economics, science and philosophy. I was born and raised Lutheran (ELCA). Even though I am limited by my lack of sight, it does not mean that I am totally helpless. My main limitation, albeit one of the most frustrating ones at times, is that I cannot (or should not *lol*) drive. Even though I am majoring in the Humanities, I am, fundamentally, a man of science by nature. The only reason I have not considered a major in the sciences is due to my difficulties with labs.
I am a teetotaler. I do not drink alcohol and am not comfortable around it. No tobacco, no alcohol, no illegal drugs. Also, I cannot be around cats. It is not that I dislike them- I love animals and cats can be adorable- rather that I am rather allergic to them.
I do prefer black women, just so you know. It is not a fetish or anything weird like that. I've just had more positive experiences with blacks that I've met than I've had with people from my own racial background.
One thing that totally confuses me since I joined here is why many of the women on here who are plus-size feel they need to underscore that fact in their profiles. Most of us can make a pretty good guess as to your body build if you have a good profile picture, event those of us (such as myself) who are blind *lol* Trust me, as a guy, I gotta say that I highly doubt many of us are really attracted to the skinny size zeros. If you mention something about media/popular culture, fuck them! If you are skinny and healthy, be happy with that. If you are chubby and healthy, be happy with that. Being able to do the things you enjoy in life is what is important.
Personally, I am more attracted to fuller figured women (BBW, curvy, full figured, chubby, whatever terms you prefer to use). Bigger women can be very beautiful and belly can be cute if you ask me.
-discussing politics, religion, history, or language
-finding weird or funny or interesting things on the internet (from a fully livable house under 200 square feet to tasty recipes, from hilarious anime to well written, thought provoking documentaries, and everything in between)
-I am a very loving and gentle soul, who is also capable of being a smartass when the need arises.
I've been told by many people that I have a nice smile and am a very joyful and friendly young man. My parents have told me I have perfect ears and many people, young and old, male and female, have said I have beautiful eyes.
I can also be somewhat shy, so if I have checked out your profile, but not messaged you, I might be trying to work up the courage to message you. Feel free to message me to break the ice- I won't bite, but I'll most certainly respond.
Update: I like The Middle, Cristella, Last Man Standing, and Forever
I like country and rock, and I happen to be a bass-baritone, thus I tend to find sopranos and tenors to be grating to the ear- especially when they hit the high notes!
I like most foods, but I don't care for raw onions, celery, or green peppers that much... picky, picky *lol* As for specific cuisines- I like German, Chinese, Italian, Thai/Vietnamese (I love Kindho- a Vietnamese/Thai restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis). I like Italian sodas and various types of coffee/latte/mocha/capuccino (sp?).
My favorite meals are either hotdishes (or, as some call them, casseroles) or boneless porkchops cooked in a cream of mushroom soup gravy with rice (I really, really like rice).
Warning, I do like lutefisk, lefse, headcheese, and pickled herring.
Movies? [Insert action/adventure or comedy here] I especially like Inspector Gadget, Gladiator, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Seven Samurai is a great movie, if you don't mind black and white subtitled movies. I also like the movie Amal, which I have my psychology professor to thank for introducing me to it
As for books, I like reading a lot of books on language creation, world building, and writing techniques. Beyond that, perusing the Perseus Digital Library, The Latin Library, and the Internet Sacred Text Archive can be very interesting.
When it comes to my favorite news sources, I'll watch just about anything- CNN, BBC, RT, or English language Al Jazeera, rarely Fox News or MSNBC though. I do like 60 Minutes and 20/20, having watched those as a kid (RIP Andy Rooney :( ).
My faith in God
My long white cane
Paper and pencils
A couple stuffed animals (i.e. teddy bears and such)
Religion and politics, mainly. Whether or not I am following God's will in my life. Socialist politics (I lean pretty far left- I distrust Big Government because of their incompetence and corruptability and I also, equally, distrust Big Business due to its unquenchable greed, its social and ecological irresponsibility, its pervasiveness, and its tendency towards fostering parasitic aristocracy that corrupts the state whose powers are supposed to derive from the people). I also like to create languages and fictional worlds in my spare time. I also like to think about micronationalism and what my ideal country would be like- I've got some ideas sketched out about what it would be like.
I believe the wrestler CM Punk phrased it best- "I lack a filter between my brain and my mouth." You know how most people have that voice in them that says, "I would not say that out loud if I were you"? Well, mine is defective or nonexistant.
However, I don't mean to intentionally hurt others. I have no malice towards anybody, and am quick to apologize for being too abrasive.
