I get frustrated with online dating and how we try to portray ourselves. Pictures at the best parties, the greatest places we've ever been... all adventure, all fun, all the time.
No. Nu uh. I have shitty days sometimes. I will close the blinds and eat terrible and not peal away from a whole season of a silly show on my laptop. Sometimes I won't want to make plans. Sometimes I don't know what to say in a stressful or tough situation. Sometimes I'm afraid.
I want to know people that are honest with these parts of themselves - that can talk about the good they've done but also how they may have hurt other people. Failed. Felt hopeless. If you are happy and sunny 24/7 I am terrified for you and of you and truthfully, I don't believe you.
Game of Thrones, True Detective, Hannibal, Freaks and Geeks, My So-Called Life, Wonder Years, Sherlock
Random sampling: Drive, Minority Report, Ratatouille, LOTR, Wayne's World, Let the right one in, Terminator 2, Harry Potter. I've seen way, way too many movies. Why aren't there any good horror movies anymore?
Lately: Random spotify. Pavarotti has been singing to my soul more than usual. 90's one hit wonders.
Always: NUFAN, Tom Waits, (old) Green Day, Pedro the Lion/David Bazan, Elliot Smith, Elvis, NOFX, The Ataris, Sondre Lerche
