My self-summary
Just moved back to Boise. Grew up in the area but have spent the last 12 years living in Ohio, Austin, and most recently Chicago (hence why I have like zero nature photos like everyone else does). Grad school is my next step. Looking for good company and positive connections.

I romanticize the lives in Bruce Springsteen songs and Richard Russo novels.

I'm an INFJ if you're in to that sort of thing. (Heavy emphasis on the introvert part. It doesn't mean I'm not fun and can't be outgoing but rather I recharge my batteries with my alone time. In recent relationships I've noticed I try to be a pleaser when it comes to spending lots of time together but if I don't get to disappear a bit, it will most definitely catch up to me. For more information on interacting with introverts (complete with pictures): http://www.mamamia.com.au/social/how-to-treat-your-introvert/)

I've been told if I were a super hero I'd be Captain America.

My name means Noble. What does yours mean?
(I don't really read into the above line...just fun to think about).
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to apply everything I've learned and experienced in the last decade to my new life back home. Grad school is my next step; looking into marriage and family counseling programs with the intention of using it as a foundation to become a sex therapist. Until then I'm working in a bookstore. Trying to DJ around town (I have a gig at the Neurolux in September...come dance with me)

Playing lots of pinball, also
I’m really good at
Working on my pinball game
Irish exits
Dancing
Painting
Putting together Ikea furniture.
Talking about sexuality (surprisingly making the effort is half the battle...it's amazing how we're conditioned to be terrible at talking about sex)
The first things people usually notice about me
People say my teeth. I sort of have fangs.

I'm tallish, so maybe that.

And my sweet sweet rack.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything sad and beautiful

Here's a few:

Books: Grapes of Wrath, Blood Meridian, Sex Outside the Lines (if you have an interest in human sexuality and sociology, I HIGHLY recommend this book), How Soon is Never, Unbearable Lightness of Being, They Shoot Horses Don't They?, Philosophy and Bruce Springsteen. I work in a bookstore. This list is long.

Comics: Currently reading Saga, Sex Criminals, Trees, Southern Bastards, Ms Marvel, God Hates Astronauts, Bitch Planet, Snot Girl

Movies: Sunshine, Breathless, Rushmore, What We Do In the Shadows, Jurassic Park, Like Crazy, Casablanca, Shame, They Shoot Horses Don't They?, The Misfits, Badlands, Adventureland, Warrior (and Warriors)...lots more. I also have a thing for tough-guy, blue collar, inspirational tear-jerkers (ie Rocky, Warrior, 8 Mile)...bros cry too.

Music: Bruce, Frightened Rabbit, The Replacements, Gaslight Anthem, Hold Steady, The Lucky Soul, Sam Cooke, still true blue for The Ataris...lots more. Been listening to my dance faves a lot lately to get my DJ chops back. I mostly just play fun singalong songs. (I wish I could add They Shoot Horses Don't They? but I never really got into that band)

TV: Fargo, Rick and Morty, Cosmos, Broad City, GoT, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Kids in the Hall, Friday Night Lights, Veep, Silicon Valley, early Simpsons...and probably lots more of these too.

Currently playing Witcher 3

Podcasts: Doug Loves Movies, How Did This Get Made, You Made it Weird, Sklarbro County, Savage Love, Sex Nerd Sandra, Carnalcopia, HoundTall, Fantasy Focus Football (I know, I know), Cracked, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Bruce Springsteen
Denver Broncos
Pinball
Painting
All my favorite books, movies, music and video games
Dancing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What responsibility do we have to life when we have such a short time compared to the rest of existence...that and the etymology of the word pajamas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying in to books, movies, and messing with my DJ jams. Or out at a brewpub and playing pinball.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If Lisa Simpson were real and an actual age, I'd totally have a crush on her.

I also have a Star Wars tattoo...you're only 22 once, right?

I never learned how to swim.

I used to donate sperm.
You should message me if
We have a good match score. One downside of Boise is meeting people on here with this criteria is no longer easy to come by.

I should note here that I've been dating non-monogamously for the past year and it's worked very well for me. It keeps communication very open and up front which I appreciate. I'd rather have a difficult conversation than play games or shy away from honesty. Regardless, I'd like to find substance and connections with whomever I spend time with, no matter how involved it may be. If this jives with you...then message away :)
