There are oaks in this world. Majestic, tall, strong and unbending in the face of adversity. And there are reeds. Discreet, unassuming, flexible and adaptable. I liken myself to the reed. I'm nobody important, not particularly strong, and I bend it more than Beckham ever did.
Adversity has come and gone. I've seen several oaks snap in the wind. And yet here I am, wobbly but upright.
Nothing is set in stone, and I'll challenge "conventional wisdom" when it's merely conventional and not wisdom at all.
Conventional wisdom says monogamy is the only path to true happiness, and that polyamory brings misery. Conventional wisdom says I shouldn't explicitly welcome and find connections with transgender men and women both, genderqueer and gender neutral folk. It says I can't be happy with an asexual partner.
Conventional wisdom can suck a BFDD. I'm too busy being happy.
I'm very outgoing and I'm easily pleased. I love going out and doing things, if it's just heading to the local game store for some boardgames or grabbing a bite to eat. Generally, I'm a happy person who just wants to spend time with my loved ones, and making them laugh. We may have some slight differences as to what is actually funny, though... ;-)
(Puns are awesome!!!)
I I like to play board games, they're my passion. Not stuff like Monopoly and Risk, but serious strategy games like Lords of Waterdeep, Coup and Revolution! Not to mention social games, including The Resistance, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Telestrations, and of course, Betrayal at House On The Hill. If you want to know more about board games; just message me! If you already know and like these sorts of games... Let's get together for a games night! I can bring a bunch myself.
I'm fat. You presumably figured that out from my pictures. I'm quite happy being fat, I'm not planning to change. If you're fat too, that's awesome! *hi5* And if you're not fat, that's awesome too! Body positivity means liking ALL bodies. I think your body is awesome - it keeps your brains off the floor :-D
That being said, I'm not up for sports, hiking, the beach or other outdoorsy stuff, sorry! Even when I was skinny, I was never into that. I was always reading instead.
I currently live together with RubyLuminous and our cat Nikki. If Nikki doesn't like you, it's not going to work out. Lucky for you, Nikki likes everyone who gives her pets.
I used to say I was no good at these self-summary things, but the fact I'm up to twelve paragraphs has determined that was a lie. Actually, holy shit. It was only 6 paragraphs before this edit... Regardless, I have a lot to say about just about anything. Drop me a message!. I love talking to people, and I always respond :)
As they say, truth is stranger than fiction, and contrary to all the natural flow of the universe, I became a banker.
Nobody is more surprised by this than I. Even after 5 years.
Currently though, I'm off work with my disability. Looking forward to going back to something and seeing what I can do once I get the all clear from the doctor.
Otherwise, my lack of fashion sense or my stupid looking smile...
Ok, both girlfriends have scolded me, saying my smile is lovable and warm. *mutters* I still think it looks silly...
After that, depending on the circumstances, people tend to notice either my friendly helpfulness or crippling shyness.
Edit: I am exceedingly shy, but nobody seems to notice. When I say I'm shy, people call bullshit. Damned if I know why.
Food: I'm a real meat and potatoes kinda guy, especially if they're garlic mashed potatoes with gravy. Mmmmmmm... I like my food simple, filling and tasty. Sorry vegans, it's just not gonna work out.
A comfy bed,
and a fan, because I overheat easily. But I'm a super warm cuddler as a result
Come play! Every Thursday, 5-9pm. Craving for a Game, in Surrey Central mall.
Sunday I play Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn
I guess the one thing that seems to surprise people is that I've never watched Toy Story.
So yeah, message me if you're interested or intrigued. Or you're bored and have nothing better to do. Or whatever. Honestly, I like talking to everybody, so the best and only reason to message me is because you want to. Don't worry, I don't bite. Unless you ask nicely...
