What I’m doing with my life
Finishing up the last bit of my bachelor's degree this semester with no real goals for afterward. Facing unfortunate implications, dealing with who I am as I solidify. I've changed quite a bit recently, even within the last year, but I feel more like myself. Learning how to appreciate and live. It's not a bad feeling, really.
I’m really good at
Listening and giving advice (if wanted). Reading into situations, for better or worse. Gathering the trends I see and discovering essential principles.

I'm also good at being able to do that without being too absolute about it. I recognize we are all complex, and so is the world and our interactions with it.

I guess I'm good at writing, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really bad at how I hold myself. I'm awkward, but not too awkward... my default face is too serious, which is weird because I laugh and smile a lot to reactions of things.

I have heard multiple times from people that this is jarring. Whoops. :(

The other thing people notice about me is apparently that I seem interested in them. I think this is a much better quality than the one I previously mentioned. That said, more than a few times individuals have assumed I'm interested in them when I was just being friendly. When did being a friendly guy take on that implication?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I finished an English lit degree: my tastes run that way. I love Shakespeare, and I don't care who knows it. I read a lot of history and literary criticism, too. Harold Bloom might be contentious, but what can I say, I like him a lot.

I don't often watch television or movies, but when I do it's HBO or Showtime. I love Game of Thrones right now, but I also loved Boardwalk Empire, Spartacus, Sopranos, Big Love... high quality writing on these shows. I want to see more of them.

I eat a wide variety of food, and I'd like to talk to people who have really unique tastes and help me expand further. Then again, I love the simple foods, really.
Six things I could never do without
I need to have a wide network of friends and family. I keep to myself a lot, but I like to engage with a wide variety of people, and it's helped me tremendously, both in the obvious ways but also because I feel I've learned to be attentive to others, even those that aren't similar to me.

I also need a book to read, a car to drive, and something to focus on. I really enjoy driving and reading and thinking and talking. I couldn't do without them.

Also, beer and Diet Coke is good, and that makes six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The present, actually. What am I doing right now to alter things for the long run? What will make my life feel better?

I guess I also think about the people in my life and what they're up to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually with friends. Going out, drinking with friends, or talking all night. Watching funny videos on the internet. Discussion. Music. Meeting new people. I really like Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm painfully shy. You can tell how shy I am by how much I'm making stupid comments to get cheap laughs.

Also, I think I'm probably a bit too boring, and secretly wish someone would be interested in me who could introduce me to something fun and exciting, despite my protests.
You should message me if
You think I'm cool, regardless of whether you think I'm hot or not. OKC is one of the few dating sites that doesn't seem to appeal to the sex-starved audience, which is why I like it. I won't take a message as a come on (necessarily), so go ahead!
