My self-summary
Is anyone here interested in making an actual platonic friend?
You know? The type you don't kiss nor engage in ANY sex acts with?
I am easy to approach so do not hesitate to. I'll be nice, I promise, unless all you do is speak of how you so lust after my flesh. There's a person beyond the exterior.
.
I am seeking out eccentric, authentic individuals to form meaningful connections with, to enjoy the simple things in life with, to explore, and share experiences with. Being into counterculture is a huge plus. The mainstream offers so little substance.
I'm very much drawn to fellow outsiders. I've always felt detached when it comes to the majority of people in this society. Many people have these "one size fits all" expectations that I either will not, or cannot live up to. And I am fine with that. I would be delighted to meet like minded individuals that share common interests. I like people who keep things uncomplicated. I enjoy the company of people who are in touch with their inner children, yet possess the wisdom and maturity of an adult. I often dwell within my own little world. I'm comfortable with solitude. In fact, I embrace moments where I can be comfortably alone with my own thoughts without the distraction of anyone else, but I do crave external stimulation and companionship.
I love experimenting. Trying new things excites me. I approach the world with mind wide open. This world we inhabit both perplexes, disgusts, enchants, & intrigues me. I've a very curious nature, especially when it comes to life's peculiarities and "abnormalities". My eyes are always wandering. I highly enjoy people watching. Human interaction intrigues me to no end.- It can be much like a visit to the zoo!:)
I enjoy activities such as: a simple night in viewing and discussing film, poetry, literature, and lyrics, taking turns reading poetry aloud with someone, singing alone even though I lack the talent, digging deep to find musical gems, laying down on a blanket in the grass and having a picnic, sharing thoughts and emotions with someone, staying active (humans were never intended to be sedentary). I'm hypersensitive emotionally & physically, but this does not mean that I am whiny nor ungrateful for my blessings. I am a very intense individual, addicted to touch; it gives me a high.
Have any skeletons in your closet that need freeing? I'm very accepting and open. I a not a gossip and keep things to myself. I'm unsure how to break the ice. I am, by nature, more of a listener than a talker. At times I think in images and emotion. I am incredibly open, expressive, and certain individuals have been able to get me to talk quite a bit. I stay away from drama and would much rather partake in a mature discussion, instead of an unnecessary argument. I can be very socially awkward. It's part of my charm.

I laugh at stupid random shit for no apparent reason.
I like when people can be silly and playful with me. I am not negative nor do I wish to associate with anyone who fosters the belief that life is composed of little more than doom and shittery. I am only interested in speaking with straightforward people like myself.
I'm a very emotionally charged person and drawn to others that are.

I have no interest in discussing politics, the economy, or sports. I don't want to be exposed to anything related to any of these things, don't wish to discuss them, don't wish to hear about them, am not particularly fond of those who invest too much time dwelling on nor fretting over such things.

It's neat when people can simply BE without the pressure to speak. It shows a strong sense of comfort to be comfortable with being in the same room, engaging in separate activities. I am a bit of a misanthropist, but I also posses an unusually strong sense of empathy towards fellow earthlings, both human & animal. I'm very liberal minded & have a distaste for most conservative republicans, bigots, people that strive to fit the status quo, arrogance, materialism, passive aggressives, anyone with a bad temper and anger problems, raging alcoholics, people that talk too much and say so little, and closed minded folks. I can't stand pretentious assholes. I don't care what you do for a living, if your car is a hoopty, or if your home is ugly. It's important to me that you are humble, kind, genuine, understanding, have the same values and many interests as I. Being an introvert is a plus. If you dig my music, message me at once.
What I’m doing with my life
Entertaining myself, practicing mindfulness, researching random topics of interest, reading, seeking pleasure, fighting my inner battles, surrounding myself with people and things I adore. BEING.
I’m really good at
Making things awkward. Speaking my mind. Honesty. Loyalty. I've been told I'm easy to talk to and good at getting people to share their thoughts and feelings without reservation. Accepting all your flaws as long as you are good at heart.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, so I've been told for all my life. People have also commented that I look younger than I actually am. People also seem to notice that I don't look American and ask where my "accent" is from and whether or not I'm European.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(In my ideal world, if my profile resonates with you, we would cut the crap and awkwardness, engage in some conversation, and make plans to engage in an activity we both enjoy.)
Poetry; Lovely words captivate me. Mental illness memoirs, anything psychology related, anything true crime, anything involving gritty realism, and anything taboo.

As far as film goes, my preference is commonly Foreign & Independent cinema & documentaries. I like to be emotionally
impacted. Anything with an offbeat plot gets my attention, as well as
anything that's experimental or considered disturbing. I also like films with lots of dialogue. And anything tasteless. Cheesy horror makes for good laughs.
There was no option for Pescetarian, but this is more accurate than vegetarian because I do consume sea life. I try my best to eat clean, REAL food most of the time. I won't preach to you about your dietary choices.
My music taste is extremely varied, but to name (just) a few of my favorites: Current 93, Coil, Pink Floyd, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Piano Magic, Changes, Boyd Rice, The Smiths, Forrest Fang, Delerium, Frontline Assembly, Black Tape for A Blue Girl, Conjure One, Patty Griffin, Tori Amos, Die Antwoord, Adham Shaikh, A Murder Of Angels, Switchblade Symphony, Hannah Fury, VnV Nation, Sad Lovers and Giants, Joy Division, Dead Can Dance, The Moody Blues, In Gowan Ring, TwinSisTerMoon, Godspeed you Black Emperor, Ataraxia, Sole, Sadistik, Whitehouse, Noe Venable, Die Form, The Knife, Steve Roach, spoken word poetry, etc..

Some genres of music I enjoy are: Ambient, Avante Garde/Experimental,Neofolk, Gothic, Neoclassical, Ethereal, Darkwave,EBM,cheesy 80's music, Independent Hip Hop, and more. Have been exploring the Noise genre, prefer to experience it live, and wish I had a companion to share it with.
The six things I could never do without
We can live without more than we think we can.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing anything I'd do on any other day. Why does what one does on a Friday matter anyway?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a learning disability called Dyscalculia. There's a lot more to it than I'm willing to get into here. People afflicted with this are unable to grasp and remember mathematical concepts, rules, formulae, and sequences I am unable to comprehend the concept of "North", "South", "East" & "West". I can't comprehend maps. My sense of direction is nonexistent. This is one of the reasons why I don't drive. If that is too inconvenient for you than you can browse on. There are others that find me well worth the effort.:) Your loss! :P
