I'm pretty quiet the first time you meet me, but if I like you, I warm up quick. Similarly, I'm terrible at being the first at anything. First one in the pool, first one on the dance floor, first one to introduce themselves, whatever. But with some healthy goading, I'm up for just about anything.
I love adventures and adventuring, just not in your typical Colorado-an sense. I prefer my death-defying in the form of castle spelunking, reverse escalator riding, road trip navigating, and/or various other events that may or maynot someday get me lost. (Suggestions welcome.)
I'm really bad at: whistling, bowling, mini golf, astrophysics, folding my laundry, cleaning my room, t-stops, calling my parents back, remembering to clean my skates, not reading the comments sections, actually eating my weight in waffles. Not like any of that stops me from trying.
Something not work related? I don't ski. I don't ski, I'm not paleo, I don't drive a Subaru, I hate my bike. Been there, tried that, not interested. Sorry? Except for the Subaru part. I'd really like to learn how to drive stick.
ii) Videodrome, Josie and the Pussycats, Mystery Men, Groundhog Day, every Christopher Lambert movie ever made. Post-apocalyptic thrillers and meta-referential comedies.
Music) Things that bleep and boop and crash, theremins and keytars preferred. The Weakerthans, Holy Fuck, Brainiac, The Faint, Justin Timberlake, DEVO, John Zorn, Nirvana, bands you've never heard of, blah blah blah. You don't need to love what I love, you just need to love that I love it. (People who love "everything but classical and country" make me nervous.)
d) The only way I'm going paleo is if I actually get to eat a sabre toothed tiger. My favourite kinds of sushi are uni and ankimo, but roe is weird. Don't ask me how that works.
Are the people who I score 100% enemy with just people who haven't answered enough questions, or are they really fervent creationists who answered Yes to "Do women have an obligation to keep their legs shaved" or "Most claims of sexual harrassment in the workplace are LIES made up by a scorned woman"?
You're willing to give things a second, sometimes even a third, chance. Experience has taught me that first meetups from the internet are almost universally awkward.
I hate to add this, but after a slew of abusive messages, here it is:
If it's within your wheelhouse to respond to/take polite rejection like a sane, mature human being. If you've ever responded to a woman who didn't respond to one of your messages, or politely turned you down, with "whatever, bitch!" or something similarly childish and degrading, please just don't even bother to contact me. As a sane adult who has the ability to learn from previous data, I can tell you that we will not be a good match. You will not neg me into attraction. Hot stove is hot, dude who lashes out at rejection lashes out.
