I laugh loudly, and often. I've been called a chop-buster, but if I tease you, it's probably because I like you. At least as a friend.
I am: intense (but not scary, I don't think), interested, skeptical, sensation-seeking, a good friend and Midwestern to the core of my being.
I like: whiskey, road trips, quirky architecture, animals, horror movies, boxing, stand-up comedy, red meat, Chuck Taylors, thrift stores and good chocolate.
Working in the corporate world as a mid-level executive with no apologies about it- I really like my job. I try to fight the machine from the inside by bringing my own brand of quirk to the khaki wasteland.
Being a decent friend, I hope.
Trying new things (food, hobbies, etc).
Giving back where/when I can.
Showing people I care about them. Life's too short not to.
Falling asleep under any circumstances. I'm not narcoleptic, just busy.
Getting people to trust me. (It's not hard: just prove you want to listen, and you'll be surprised by what people share).
Books: lots of non-fiction about random things, biographies, weird history. Not a huge fiction reader but I tend to like gritty and/or gross books about people and relationships.
Movies: Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, The Royal Tenenbaums, Major League, Kill Bill 1&2, The Departed. Horror movies of all kinds, bro comedies, etc.
Music: Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Liz Phair, Poe, Flogging Molly, Cake, Jurassic 5, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash
Food: Yes. Red meat. Cheese. Learning to like vegetables, somewhat begrudgingly. Sushi, in moderation. Mexican like it's my job.
Those aren't particularly interesting or idiosyncratic answers, but they're accurate.
You like your life, and if not, have a plan on how to get it to a likeable state.
You understand that having read my profile, writing something specifically to me is important. Generic emails don't really interest me, no matter how cute you find yourself. Women get bombarded with (boring, gross and/or lazily copied and pasted) messages here.
You understand that I'm not *obligated* to respond to messages. Nor is any woman. Men who get pissy when you don't respond to them (when you receive multiple messages A MINUTE): not cute.
You're not a unicorn hunter (someone who trolls dating sites looking for single bi chicks to have threesomes with)
