I try to always be compassionate, and consider the other party's point of view before making judgments. I've been told I'm a sweet person, and I value sweetness and compassion very much in other people as well.
I love cats, fencing, reading, and occasionally computer games. Unfortunately, injuries in my twenties have slowed me down a bit with regards to fencing, so I stay active other ways.
I really want to meet someone with whom I can communicate effortlessly and comfortably, ideally, but in the vein of openness and inclusiveness I am open to talking to anyone who has something to say.
If Meyers-Briggs is your thing, apparently I'm an ISTP.
Note that I change my appearance fairly regularly, so the hair/facial hair in any given photo isn't likely to reflect my current appearance in those areas.
Movies? I don't watch them too often. I really liked The Man From Earth, I enjoyed the LotR series back in the day, I thought A Clockwork Orange was a pretty good adaptation of the book. Oh, and I identify with the characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I Heart Huckabees represents a lot of my life, I feel.
As far as music goes, I have a wide variety of favorites. My all-time favorites are Tom Waits, NIN, VNV Nation, Rammstein, Covenant. My current favorite is Phutureprimitive. Can literally never go wrong with some triphop. I also enjoy something electronic I can move to. Variety is the spice of life. Lately Florence and the Machine has been cranking up my feels in a very enjoyable manner.
Food is something I'm passionate about, but not in the way you might expect. I don't care all that much about eating it, I just love to cook. It's like a form of meditation to me. I enjoy inventing new recipes and sometimes just picking some ingredients and outright winging it. Always seems to turn out well.
A well-stocked kitchen
Cats (or any mammalian friends, really)
Intense physical activity
I try to spend some time every day in a state of self-reflection, taking a mental inventory of my thoughts and feelings.
I spend a lot of time thinking but I tend to be focused on tangible things, not constantly stuck inside my head.
Attempting to do something atypical.
If all else fails, maybe some video games. Recently, I've gotten into Overwatch.(On PC)
I am unlikely to message anyone first, so if you have any hope of making a connection it's a good idea to say hi or something equivalent. Preferably followed by something interesting or relevant.
Oh, and I've been wanting to try playing D&D so if anyone has a group I can join please let me know. I DM'd a lot back in high school and never got to play. Seems to be a thing people do around here.
