My self-summary
Lots of good reasons why you wouldn't date me.

I'm contrarian. I'll argue, even just so I can understand things better. I dislike things just because they're popular. I have a deep respect for our search for the objective truth. If you try to feed me some supernatural bullshit or political hogwash, I'll tear it apart.

I have to feed my creative side. I will lock myself in my room for the weekend and work on a personal project until I collapse, and then I'll get up with a pen in my hand and continue. All this without caffeine. Every once in a while the wanderlust hits. I change a hundred things in my life, pack up, and go traveling. Maybe I'll see another country. Maybe I'll go on grueling hikes in the forest and poop in the woods, living off of instant oatmeal and Clif bars, lugging a camera and tripod to shoot another roll of mediocre pictures that nobody will ever see.

I'm not traditional. I'm comfortable in my skin and at peace with my feelings. I can do karaoke sober, and I hate it when strangers won't dance with me. I can be masculine and feminine, extroverted and introverted, anxious and calm, ambitious and content, prideful and humble. My brain was assembled with mismatched parts and I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't get embarrassed easily.
What I’m doing with my life
Working 60 hour weeks in a stressful job with a long commute, waking myself up with caffeine, putting myself to sleep with alcohol, filling the gaps with network television and as little human interaction as possible, and hoping that I'll die before I have to face the fact that my 401k is empty and nobody truly loves me the way my mother did. Okay, I made that all up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yes, I read books, watch movies, and listen to music. I like cooking, live shows, festivals, and that thing in the desert. It doesn't matter if we like the same bands, or if I've read your favorite book.
You should message me if
There are plenty of red flags in my profile. That's the point. I want to scare you off. If I haven't managed to scare you off, then drop me a message. Surely you know that I am not the standard package. You're not going to get the european vacation, the house, the dog, the Netflix subscription, or a bunch of pictures from your white water rafting trip to post on Facebook. You'll get something different—I don't know—an exhausting trip to the desert, a course in rope bondage, or a victorian style tea party.

But, you're independent and even stubborn. You know how to get what you want and you're capable of communicating your feelings. You enjoy life outdoors and in the bedroom, and you don't measure yourself against other people.

Maybe together, life will be even better than it is now.
