I'm nerdy and introspective. You probably know the type. Endearing in a "lost puppy" sort of way, commonly described as a polite young man by old ladies who don't know any better, social phobia constantly at war with the fact that I like meeting people and find them interesting. I'm a little vacuous and spacey. I've been told I’m a pretty nice person, and sensitive and a good listener and stuff, but I really have nooo idea where people get that shit from.
I'm a geek, I'm sarcastic, cynical, and mostly quite soft spoken. I'm opinionated, but tend to keep my mouth shut. I'm curious and open minded, and I like accumulating interesting experiences, anecdotes, and people. By which I mean, as friends, or sources of fond memories. I don't have a collection of quirky people locked in my basement, or anything. I feel that part shouldn't *really* need clarifying, but apparently it does.
I've also been learning to cook! HelloFresh has changed my goddamn life, and I've become a super obnoxious evangelist for them.
I guess if you asked people that weren't goddamn nerds, they usually comment on how tall I am. Or my eyelashes. I've also been told I have "really big lips for a white boy", but I don't know if that's good or not?
Movies: Cloverfield, Children of Men, Bourne Ultimatum, Dog Soldiers, Serenity, Blues Brothers, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, When Harry Met Sally, Love Actually, Ocean's 11, Wall E, Submarine, Doomsday, Shortbus, Grosse Pointe Blanke, Slumdog Millionaire, Avatar, Little White Lies, Inception, Guardians of the Galaxy... I like movies.
Surrealist films generally piss me off, and I think watching
2001: A Space Odyssey is what it feels like to die. In slow
Music: Cake. Magnetic Fields. Jukebox the Ghost. Dresden Dolls. Snow Patrol. Aerosmith. Queen. Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Eels. Radiohead. Leonard Cohen. TV On the Radio. Cage the Elephant. Modest Mouse. Tally Hall. Elbow. Tom Waits. Bloodhound Gang. System of a Down. Tenacious D. Fat boy Slim. Searson. Flobots. Glitch Mob.
I also develop a profound appreciation for D&B and chiptunes when I'm high, but most of the time, I'm all about that classic and indie rock.
...Or playing video games, that remains ever popular. Board games too. I sort of miss being able to get drunk with people and then play Settlers of Catan or Cards Against Humanity, that seems like a very Boston thing.
Sex wise, I get that every guy is trying to come across as a sensitive new age Lothario these days, but giving cunnilingus is the closest thing I have to a fetish and I liked it before it was cool.
Oh, and I've listed myself as straight because I'm pretty much exclusively interested in women, but I have hooked up with guys once or thrice before and I have absolutely zero interest in dating anyone who's skeeved out by that.
"You could tell she was bright from her face. Bright and forward-looking and relaxed and intelligent about the way she led her life. American girls often were. They took their lives into their own hands- that was what they had been brought up to do- and made the most of them on their own terms. Not like us Brits, Brown thought, lugubriously fulfilling the duties of our moribund society."
although not necessarily American, just not... y'know... boring. If you're sassy and/or petulant, I'll probably adore you :)
Or if you want a gym partner! I'll make you look healthy by comparison.
