To review, I actually do consider myself genuine and down-to-earth, but it seems so generic that I felt like an accompanying paragraph of universal truths was basically required. I swear I'm kind of funny sometimes, but it doesn't always translate into text so well.
I'm a masculine gay - nope, not self-hating, it's just who I am. I think the phrase 'more "guy" than "gay"' summarizes things succinctly... Granted, some people find that line offensive, but my objective isn't to insult - I've just found that that line tends to resonate with the guys I get along with best.
I like cars and have been known to ruin jeans while working on them, helping to feed that pile of holey jeans that always comes in so handy around laundry day. I'm generally into technical things... I study engineering. I can talk about feelings though, and I'm actually pretty outgoing.
Generally speaking, I'm into masculine guys and good conversation. Good conversation (by my definition) doesn't have to mean deep or life-changing - just that you're both engaged and can easily build off of each others' ideas or jokes. Masculinity and being in good shape are generally the things that make guys physically attractive to me, but quality of conversation is the thing that makes the difference between "would bang" and "would bang with intent to date." "Would not bang" comes up sometimes too, I swear.
Special note to all super-attractive guys: wink
Once upon a time my greatest goal was to initiate some kind of paradigm shift. Nowadays, I've started to acknowledge that other things (like having a social life and a significant other) will probably take priority. I still dream of changing the world [...for the better...], but the realist in me acknowledges that that's pretty hard for one person to do.
Explaining things I understand
Asking piercing questions
Overanalyzing trivial decisions, then making life-changing ones without much thought
Juggling fruits. I mean this literally, and only literally.
Movies: I rarely keep on top of new releases, but I tend to like anything with a good plot twist.
Shows: newly introduced to Archer and I'm hooked. Arrested Development is an old favourite. I've also started lazily following The Good Wife and Elementary
Food: pretty much anything with meat, sugar, or butter. My favourite is obviously deep fried steak with molasses.
Also, if you're an Olympic athlete, Nobel laureate, or both, it's likely you should message me.
