My self-summary
"I want to go to there!"
Just a guy taking life as it comes and using it to my advantage.
ENFJ
I am looking for nothing in particular except to see some new faces, learn some new names, and create new relationships (friends and otherwise). I'm an outgoing guy, and I like to randomly do things to make my friends laugh - or to catch them off guard.
Check out my videos (mostly of me and friends doing drag shows):

I like to just go with the flow a lot - I'm pretty indecisive, that's probably why.
Been here for about 6 years - grew up in Texas, school in Arkansas, and moved here after a theatre gig in good ol' "West Virginie".

I am an old-fashioned, hopeless romantic when it comes to my dating life. For me, it's the simple things in life. A stroll down the road, embarrassing myself while sharing a game of tennis, grabbing a cup of tea or coffee while chatting, these are the kinds of things that get me and keep me interested. Especially in the beginning. I am at a point in my life where I'm ready for Mr. Right, but I know it may take a while for us to find each other. So in the meantime, let's be respectful, have fun, and learn about each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a personal assistant to a lawyer. I'm also a performer (drag) and do theatre here and there.
My goal is to eventually create a sort of production company that blends all different art forms to create unique artistic experiences.

I'm just trying to make the best of what I have and push for what I want.
I’m really good at
-being there for people; even if I don't know what to say or do
-been told I'm good at making people laugh.
-remembering things
The first things people usually notice about me
-How much I look like Oprah.
i kid
but seriously...
-me being crazy - making people laugh
-my eyes
-I feel like I need a third thing, but I can't think of something... how about you tell me what you notice first and eventually I will add something.

The six things I could never do without
Passion
Friends
Theatre / Drag

Hearing
Education
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human Interaction: I love watching how people meet, what types of relationships form, how long friendships/ etc. last, all of it.

New play/ musical concepts: I have written one play that I'm currently on my third round of editing. I have one idea for a musical for sure that I need to actually sit down and write out!

My Future: I constantly ponder ways to enhance my current experiences (esp. professionally) and open up more opportunities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing what feels right that night: Being out on the town - probably dancing my ass off, or chilling in with a movie and good company either way. (Also depends on if I have rehearsal on Saturday morning.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like sex...?
Oh, also, I get really school-girl giddy when one of two things happens:
1) A cute boy talks to or messages me.
2) I have a really intriguing conversation with a guy.
You should message me if
You can hold a conversation while maintaining interest.
