Hello. This somewhat attractive beardy individual who is currently speaking to you via text is named Brian. That is, I'm Brian. And I have never been on a single date as a result of this website, which may or may not be a good thing. I write for the blog/website Bastard's Got a Nosebleed and make very little in the way of money. I probably make a lot of typos too. If you read any of my things over there and notice some typos, please point them out so I can fix them. My editor (who is also me) is awful.
There's a lot of things I could put here about me. I could talk about personal issues I've overcome, things I've had to learn to live with, and I could even list off my bad habits. But, rather than doing all of that, I'm going to just put some basics. I'm a writer, obviously, and it is my chosen career path. it's a rough one, but hey, them's the breaks. I am a self-professed geek and, as such, love many things in the geek purview. I do not own a trilby, say "m'lady", or support the idiotic "meninst" movement. I am a feminist though, so there's that. I have a preoccupation with old stuff too, but I never let that stop me from trying out the new. If I sound alright, try sending me a message. It couldn't hurt, right?
- That I am tall. Very, very tall. I will kaiju all over your ass.
- I dress reasonably nice on occasion.
- There is a lot of fur covering my skin.
- I apparently resemble Chuck Klosterman.
- I might just be awesome (opinions may vary).

- Music that no one else I know listens to.
- Books that you will likely never read.
- Indoor plumbing.
- A pointed stick.
- My backpack's got jets. I'm Boba the Fett. I bounty hunt for Jabba Hutt to finance my 'Vette.
Just a few thoughts in passing, yes?
I also have rather pouty lips and am very insecure about it.
- You happen to find Robin Williams attractive.
- You like a guy who enjoys cuddling.
- You want a bad doodle of you. Seriously, if you message me I will do a bad doodle of you. It'll distract me from terrible movies.
- You know that The Street Fighter isn't a movie based on a video game and The Black Swan has nothing to do with ballet.
- You enjoy reading.
- You understand that sex is important, just not the most important thing.
- You prefer The Walking Dead comic series to the television series.
- You'll go on walks with me.
- A Clive Barker movie marathon sounds like an attractive prospect to you. Really just having movie marathons period, as I love me some movies.
- You find me attractive on some level and would like to explore that further.
You should not message me if
- You find hairy guys in their late 20s/early 30s unattractive.
- Books bore you and/or you think reading is dumb.
- You don't want to, I suppose. There's no gun to your head, yes?
