I'm looking for people to actually hang out with. I have many text-based friendships, but nobody to play board games with.
You should be that person.
I actually live about an hour away from Athens, I can travel up to hang out every once in a while, or you can come travel to the dinky little town where I live.
I had a huge paragraph on here talking about what makes a bad first message here. That was dumb.
I'll instead post the three rules that Aziz Anzari and sociologist Eric Klinenberg came up with that make a good first message.
1. A firm invitation to something specific at a specific time (This one isnt for me... It's just for help in future endeavors of yours. I'm far too awful at being a person to just hang out with someone before we've talked)
2.Pay attention- Show that you've put effort into knowing who they are as a person (I also edited this one a little for relevance to the online dating world.)
This is actually super fucking helpful and he hits the nail on the fucking head. Definitely worth a read, if for nothing other than a giggle.
Also, I have a cat.
His name is Tesla
He likes to chew cords and destroy clothes.
He's my absolute favorite thing.
When I'm not working or doing classwork...I'm not really doing much of anything. I'm a regular bundle of thrills and excitement.
Creating grand schemes for gatherings and then struggling to follow through.
And I'm fairly decent at singing. I mostly do choral stuff, but I'm trying to branch out.
I also am pretty ok at acting.(I do a decent bit of community theatre)
My hair color has been coming into play more and more lately. I can't get it quite as red as I want it without using bleach first, but its close enough that people make little mermaid references on occasion.
The Kingkiller Chronicles
The Dark Tower Series
A Song of Ice and Fire Series
Horror/Sci-fi/Fantasy Novels are my favorites but I also read fiction, some historical fiction, classic literature, and a biography or two.
It may sound a little pathetic, but probably Fantasia, the old disney movie. I watched it so much as a kid that I wore the VHS tape out.
I dont watch a lot of movies on my own and haven't seen many movies that people consider "classics", but I'm more than willing to be introduced to any movies you love. I hate romance movies (except black and white ones, but I have to be in a particular mood for those), and it has to be a pretty decent for me to truly enjoy an action or rom-com. I'm partial to thrillers (especially the psychological variety), good horror movies, dramas, and of course, sci-fi and fantasy.
I've also been on a Disney kick lately. It happens sometimes, dont judge.
Feel free to ask about them, I watch too many
My taste in music changes frequently. I listen to almost everything... the "good" music in each category. I mostly listen to folky stuff though. Typical hipster garbage, I know.
*A quiet place.
*The internet and some way to access it ( It may technically be two, but I'm a goddamn rebel)
*A creative outlet
*A distraction. I tend to spend too much time in my head without one.
I would love to be more productive than I actually am
The psychology behind serial killers and people with antisocial personality disorder (formerly known as psychopaths). I can promise you that I'm not horrifyingly disturbed or disturbingly morbid. I just find it baffling and super interesting.
How to make this profile sound less pessimistic.
Also, cat stuff
Home... on the internet.
Playing video games, talking to people I'll never meet but still consider friends, or watching Netflix.
I'm a bit of a homebody lately, but I'd like to change that.
If you want to hear me ramble about Fallout or coloring. Both of which I do constantly
If you also avoid Tumblr like the plague.
Or if you're snarky. I like snark
