Many friends have told me, "You should write a book about your life" because it seems I have lived several different ones. Sometimes it feels like a burden to have so much history (no, I haven't been in prison) but the gift has been tolerance and empathy for others. I've walked in alot of different shoes. At this point, I'm truly happy with myself just as I am.

My choice of style that could be labeled goth/punk/alternative. I keep my hair, nails and clothing black, my skin pale, my makeup dark to accentuate my eyes and lips.
("I wear black on the outside, just as black as I feel on the inside." - Morrissey. If you love MOZ, you understand the humor in this.)
I'm generally quiet but warm up quickly if I feel a connection. I'm perceived to be intelligent and informed - I am, compared to many.
Films - Again, I usually watch by director, actors, and studios. IFC selections, Cronenberg, Lynch, The Coens, Orwell, Mulholland Drive, Chocolat, Secrets and Lies, Citizen Kane, Crouching Tiger/ Hidden Dragon, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Revolutionary Road, American Beauty, Requiem for a Dream, Metropolis, Dark City, The Machinist, Memento, Passenger Side, A History of Violence, Surveillance, many, many more. The only Romance films I like are Love and Other Disasters and Little Ashes; I've watched both repeatedly. Any good biographical or political film. I just saw the bio-documentary Searching for Sugarman and highly recommend it. Total escape comes from Bollywood and bi-sex porn.
TV online - Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Shameless, Wilfred, Democracy Now, The Colbert Report, Jon Stewart. I'd like to watch more science programming.
Music, preferably LIVE or DJ - darkwave, goth, industrial, electronic dance music/techno, hardcore punk, post-punk, new wave, synthpop, 80s, grrrl punk/grunge/rock, grrl rappers, some alternative/indie rock, some classic rock, Big Band, etc.
Music has been a therapeutic force for me. AFI's (A Fire Inside) music transformed my life (5 of my 8 tattoos are AFI-related.) I still use music for mood management sometimes, especially Morrissey/The Smiths.
I love to dance at my friends' DJ nights.
Food - vegan/vegetarian spicy ethnic, especially Indian and Pan-Asian. Fresh fruits and veggies. Xtra shot soy lattes. Top-shelf bourbons. Cheap, tasty wines.
(I only smoke when out at a club or party and then just one Clove - I'd have my Goth card revoked if I didn't.)
I must be the only person on Earth who dislikes the beach and the ocean - wind, noise, sun, sand. Instead I love dark forests, hidden waterfalls, misty rivers, streams and caves.
Essential non-things: time, health, intelligence, solitude, courtesy, stimulation, satire.
You are fit and attractive. You are a twink of any age or gender. You think androgyny is sexy. You have a submissive streak in the bedroom and are kink-friendly. I'm looking for fwb or playmates but that's not the same as casual sex to me.
I'm not sure what "dating" means here. I am not looking for traditional romance or exclusivity - I don't believe either are practical, long-lasting or even desirable. I'm not missing anything from my life but I'm sure there are people out there who can enhance it and I'd like to meet them.
