Edt: Okay, some of this sounds a bit harsh. I'm trying to soften it up a bit.
I'm married. Lets get that out the way. I'm not really looking for sex. Sex is fun and nice and I'm horny a good part of the time, but really, I'm just looking for someone to converse and hang out. (There was another sentence here, but I cut it for this parenthetical statement. It was too harsh. See? I'm trying.)
When it comes to hanging out, though, it's a bit involved for me. I work nights, and my schedule, while regular to me, will seem irregular to you. So, yes, I have to jump through a couple of hoops to hang out. However, if you're willing, I'm willing.
I'm a flirt. Sometimes I take that to extremes. I like to turn women on. I'm pretty good with words. Aside from being a comic book editor and writer, I also write short stories--mainly erotica, lately.
I like to believe I'm witty. At least intelligent enough to carry on a conversation and have some laughter there, as well. A bit of a smart-ass, and because I listened to a lot of music and seen a lot of movies, I can probably related things said to a song lyric or movie line. Since this can be as annoying as it sounds, I generally keep these to myself.
I believe in honesty. Don't ask me a question you don't want to know the answer to, just as I don't ask a question that I don't want to know the answer to. Some people can't handle the truth. Since few truths are absolute (much of what we think of as truth is nothing more than our personal bias), I will give you my version of it when asked. I'm not going to sugar coat it. A "do these pants make me look fat" will elicit the correct response. (Yes, I'm black, so I like a nice derrière.) Dont get upset because you didn't get the answer you expected. Truth. You've been advised. (Yeah, that's a bit harsh, but there's no way to really soften this one. Sorry. But at least you know, right?)
I'm an open book. Just ask away.
Editing. You have no idea the work it takes to birth a viable comic.
Eating. Because food.
Edit: I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately. Graphic Audio, which does full-cast productions, as well as music and sound effects. "A Movie In Your Mind", indeed!
Movies: any b/w horror, sci-fi, or thriller. Horror will always be my first choice, followed by action, followed by romantic comedies. No, I'm not going to do a list. It would be too long, varied, and boring.
TV: I don't watch a lot of it. Too busy working. This is why we have Netflix! There is a lot of stuff in my queue. Yes, even cartoons. Comic books, remember?
Edit: okay, aside from he obvious sci-fi stuff, we've got Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, OITNB, and a few others. No Walking Dead. I'm tired of zombies. Blame comics!
Music: Finally, something of a list! Prince. Long list, right? Anyway, I'm a lover of old school rap, r&b, classic soul, classic rock, and some easy listening. I also like New Age. I like some country, but not much. Not much reggae, either.
