Bongiorno! Thanks for stopping by. I'm brand-new to this whole thing, so bear with me...
I'm looking to meet interesting, sincere people and get out for concerts, drinks, movies, freakin' Scrabble - I'm really up for anything. Even went skydiving last year! If this thing leads to a relationship, great! If it never goes past friendship, that's kickass, as well. Just letting it ride, and we'll see how it goes.
As for what I look for in a significant other - ultimately, it just has to click; either we have chemistry and *get* each other, or we don't. Can't force it. On some level, we'll understand each other immediately.
To be objective: she's cute, kind, humble, quietly confident, optimistic, intelligent, and puts others before herself. She finds magic in the little things and humor in everything - especially herself. If she can sing or play an instrument, that's a DEFINITE plus! I've always thought it would feel incredible to make music with her - whoever she is. Anyone seen "Once?" Something like that, without parting ways at the end.
A little background: I graduated from UF with a BA in English (focus in film) and minor in Secondary Education. After that, I got my certification for Audio Engineering from A.R.T.I. in Orlando.
I'm a huge movie/music buff - love to talk film and discover new artists/bands.
I'm extremely patient - to a fault, even. Huge fan of intelligent, witty conversation - as long as it's partnered by honesty and humility. Very laid back, but very clean and attentive to detail. Love bad jokes (read the "I'm really good at" section for an example). Repulsed by drama; life's too short to stress!
I'm attracted to (all kinds of) art created with true passion, intelligence, and (again) attention to detail - enamored by deep, deliberate, vision-driven films (Mulholland Drive, Once, and Let the Right One in come to mind) and blown away by pure, intelligent, complex music/lyrics (Porcupine Tree, Jeff Buckley, Circus Maximus, etc).
I write, record, and discover new music on a daily basis, and I'm happiest with the volume cranked and/or performing on stage.
Check the fields below for a few more morsels, and feel free to message me anytime.
Getting back to the dating topic - I'd be absolutely blown away if I could simply play music with my significant other. Seriously. ...Blown away.
Further down the road, my kid(s) will DEFINITELY take music lessons, whether they like it or not. Unless they hate it. ...actually, even if they hate it. Cuz they'll eventually love it. Unless they hate it. Seriously, though...family band for the win!
Anything requiring patience
Appreciating the simple things
Exploring the complex
Enjoying depth in music and film
Writing with my style-setting stuck in "verbose" mode
Jokes so dry and bad that they're great. Here's one:
Q: What is "Mary" short for?
A: She has no legs.
Slowly working my way through each season of Dexter. Gotta love Netflix.
A few of my favorite movies:
Grosse Pointe Blank
Let The Right One In
the LotR trilogy
Halloween (die in a fire, Rob Zombie)
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Shadow of the Vampire
I enjoy and find genius in all musical genres...EXCEPT for rap, if you even want to consider that a *musical* genre.
...I look forward to your letters.
A few all-time favorite songs (from lightest to heaviest):
"Solveig's Song" by Grieg
"Last Goodbye" by Jeff Buckley
"The Sound of Muzak" by Porcupine Tree
"Ghost Prototype 1: Measurement of Thought" by Scar Symmetry
A few favorite artists:
You wouldn't know it by reading this profile, but I'm MUCH less verbose in person. My mind/fingers get carried away when I type.
Pretty sappy, but I'm compelled at the moment to add this to the profile: even though I'm really good (too good) at doing it, I'm just tired of the *feeling* of being alone.
Want to hang out? Share a terrible-yet-amazing joke? Quiz each other on films? Share favorite bands? Make music?
I'm not a douche, I'll definitely respond; looking for new friends as much as I'm hoping for a relationship. Go ahead and send that message.
One disclaimer, though: if your message is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors, it will be orphaned.
...Okay, fine - one last disclaimer, and this is not AT ALL meant in a superficial way: if you have a picture on this site, let it be a recent one. I want to meet YOU. Not the virtual "you" that you were years ago, and not an in-person "you" that you're *ashamed* to reveal; take pride in who you are now, and let the virtual (your OKC self) mirror the actual. This goes for friendship as well as potential companionship. Otherwise (and I mean this as kindly as possible), what's the point?
Okay...now you can send that message.
