I also really enjoy cooking, eating, nerd stuff, video games, competitions of any sort, deep conversations about anything, silly conversations about anything, really understanding the people around me, pets, Netflix, family, Halloween/costumes, teaching, learning, and Disney movies. #savethebestforlast
I hate to use the phrase shy at first, but then really open up, so I won't. What I would say is that when I meet people, it's important for me to learn about them and understand where they're coming from before I can fully open up. I need to know when the people I'm close to need a laugh, a hug, words of encouragement, a funny meme, pizza, a sounding board, or silence. As such, I'm not a huge fan of small talk. I like to talk about passions or interests, beliefs or crazy theories, stories from your childhood, travels or that one time at the bar. I have plenty of stories to share myself.
What am I not? I'm not easily offended. I'm not interested in hunting. I'm not an always on the go person; I like my activities and outside time but a boring night in can be blissful, too. I'm not a quantity person when it comes to friends; I just need a few close ones. I'm not a cocky guy, but I do play one in real life.
Looking for my best friend to go on a lifelong tour with.
Movies: Harry Potter (see above), Avatar, The Room, Star Wars, LotR, Miyazaki productions, Disney movies, documentaries (especially ones with stunning cinematography), and anything funny. Also, anything that will inspire a good Halloween costume.
Shows: Sitcoms of all kinds, stand up of most kinds, GoT, Gilmore Girls (shhhh), more documentaries, and lots of whatever my cursor happens to land on in Netflix.
Music: Everyone puts "everything" on here, so I will, too! Specifically, I like things that are vocally focused, so acoustic or a cappella songs stick out, anything Disney, and whatever my heart likes to sing/hum/dance along to.
Food: Yes. Spicy food, homemade food, restaurant food, foreign food, local food, junk food, health food, vegan cuisine and a pile of meat, I'm up for all the food. Love to cook and experiment in the kitchen.
2. Sasha-bear (my dog)
3. Growth (in all areas other than physically, vertical expansion is impossible and horizontal is non-optimal)
6. Breaking arbitrary rules like having to have exactly 6 things I could never do without
7. Just kidding, sometimes we need rules or there would be anarchy. Sorry OkCupid/NSA, I'll be good.
