My self-summary
Has anyone else noticed that the quiver function seems to either give a grand slam or strike out altogether?

I had a random evening free, so I thought I'd update my profile, which I haven't done in a while. Bear with me :P

I'm ... hmm, sorry...having a hard time keeping a train of thought here. Part of me wants to write a very straightforward summary of myself, other parts want to go into a long boring narrative that neither you nor myself actually wanna yawn through, and another part of me just wants to make you guess everything and just message me if you think I'm attractive. I'll split the difference:

1) Violinist
2) Extrovert
3) Observant
4) Scatterbrained
5) Impatient
6) Friendly
7) ... ok, bored with making lists.

I beat myself up when I do someone injustice. I don't care for people who are unwittingly pretentious. I'm always polite, but not always kind (although, in a perfect existence, I wish I could be). When I'm committed I'm committed 100%, otherwise I'm completely rational about my decisions.

I don't waste my time with chasing things I cannot have, but I try not to sabotage myself from having things that I want. I usually try to borrow from the experience of others, but I am just becoming mature enough to realize that it doesn't matter how fucking hard you try to avoid life, it's gonna find you out and kick your ass anyway. So you might as well make a mistake boldly and proudly, and embrace yourself for your flaws as well as your strengths.

I tend to be attracted to things which challenge/scare me a little. I have a fear of heights, but that doesn't stop me from pursuing them. I am a little [LOT] afraid of guys I'm attracted to, but I'm learning not to let that get in my way :P

I'm a Midwesterner. A Norwegian/German guy, who is interested in just about everything and what I'm not interested in I want to figure out. I guess that's enough blurbing.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am working as a freelance violinist. I teach students in a broad age range (my youngest student is 4 my oldest student is in his 60's), and I perform chamber music, folk-music concerts, and in several orchestras, and I dabble in lots of different styles in other genres. I'm looking for the next step.
I’m really good at
Hmmmm....stepping over the line, hooking people up, keeping my life drama free, keeping secrets, processing logic, using all the tools at my disposal to figure something out, losing my keys, being about 10 minutes late to everything, and flirting [with women...still trying to figure out how flirting with guys works].
The first things people usually notice about me
........that I'm tall, blonde, I seem like a douche (upon first
acquaintance, from what I'm told), and hmmm....idk, maybe you
should tell me lol. Or not...oh yeah, that I'm polite. And seem
foreign (even though I'm really not).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh geez. List time.

Books: I go with classics I grew up reading. Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, the Andromeda Strain (or ANYTHING by Michael Crichton) Journey to the Center of the Eart (or ANYTHING by Jules Verne).

Movies: depends on my mood...movies that made the biggest impression on me were My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Schindler's List (cried like a baby...both times), Goodbye Lenin, Finding Neverland, The Undefeated, and Inglorious Basterds.

Food? It would be easier to write what I don't like: tomatoes, very very sweet things (i.e. cake), too much deep fried food, avocado, strawberries, and watermelon.
Six things I could never do without
Ok, I'm just going to ask the obvious question...where did they come up with 6 things? Was there a study done that figured out that there are 6 essential things in everyone's life? Google could probably answer this for me, but I don't feel like praying right now.

1) ...ok, just spent an obscene amount of time thinking about this. A car. Not necessarily my car, but transportation in general.
2) Intimacy. That means whatever you want it to mean. Let your imagination be your guide.
3) Toilet Paper.
4) Money to buy food with.
5) Something to do.
6) Clean body/flattering clothes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain travels in really fun swirls. I thought about my favorite Blog (Hyperbole and a Half), then thought about dead babies, then thought about abortion, then about political parties in this country, then about race, then about demographics, then about urban/rural dichotomy, then about Europe, then about how I wanna go to Germany/Norway, then about fashion trends in Europe, how they trickle back here, then about the social ramifications of the way we dress/materialism/labels, then I thought about where I'm going in life....and how I can't decide if I wanna fit a specific genre or just kinda exist in limbo, and then thinking that this kind of thinking is attracting people who are really not attractive, then that I am really shallow, then that I can't be shallow and still think like this...then I don't know. I'm done rambling. Don't read this paragraph. I should have put that at the beginning.
On a typical Friday night I am
Rehearsing? Partying, or hanging out with friends, travelling, performing, at a movie, having awesome...ahem...tutoring sessions, idk...I'm an Aries. I'm doing whatever strikes my fancy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think this is the most neglected box in Cupid. I have lots of private things I'm willing to admit (and even more that I'm not!)

2) [I'll explain why I began with two in a minute] That I know a lot about astrology, and I don't care if I believe it or not. I study it for it's own sake...it's just fun and ALWAYS a good conversation starter.
3) I love hockey (That's not really private...just thought I should throw it in there). Pretty much because of the violence.
3) (yes, I repeated the number since the previous three didn't count) I am ONLY attracted to attractive guys. Wrap your brain around that one. You know who you are.
1) That I think people who just write "It's private, so I won't tell you" miss the point of this box entirely. (I was going to put this one first, but I decided that could be considered offensive to some people.)
4) I teach and perform violin for a living. Yep, starving artist is right.
5) I have lost my debit card at least 5 times.
6) I am not a virgin.
You should message me if
You are confident, open to new ideas, but tend to be along the more traditional lines, handsome, fit, and earnest. I find that I get along very well with men and women who are bisexual, although I only date men. I don't care to receive lots of messages; I'd prefer to get a few that matter.
The two of us
