I'm honest even when it hurts. I dont hold grudges. I dont make judgements.I like easily. I don't love very easily, but I am certain that one day I will deeply. I don't get attached easily. I like attention, but also appreciate being left alone so I can focus on work, art, building or whatever other task has captured my attention.
I am affectionate. I have empathy. I'm not as good a listener as I would like to be.
I play the guitar poorly. I sing even worse. Neither of those facts keeps me from writing music. I am good at writing poetry. I have a darker style, but it is my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not to spend my life working. Going to concerts, having a beer, playing outside. Enjoying every minute of any free time I can find.
I’m really good at
mastering new skills, absorbing knowledge, kissing, laughing, making others smile, my job, laughing at myself, laughing at other people's expense, tieing one on, breathing deeply, swimming, eating hot wings, entertaining myself with random thoughts, doing errands like I am on a timed scavenger hunt, ignoring clutter, finding the irony/humor in anything, singing in really low ranges, being critical of myself and taking criticism, making new friends, losing touch with old ones :(, driving, chinese checkers, research, seeing into the heart of it all, pretty much everything.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Informal Logic, The Odyssey, Inferno, Good and Evil, Noone here gets out alive, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, On the Road changed my life, that fact seems odd to me the older I get and when I reread it I think "what was I thinking?"
Movies: I have lots I like. I don't sit and watch tv a lot though. Don't get me wrong, some days I will just be lazy and watch two or three movies in a row. It is jut that I would rather normally be out listening to music, hanging with friends, fixing my car, riding my bike, exercising or any myriad of other things. I know in all likelihood that one day I will end up strapped to a machine to survive, I just dont want to do it before I am required.
Music: I listen to mostly indie stuff. Lightning 100 and NPR are my regulars stations. I like the Black Keys and Features and other local bands. I'm listening to Passenger a bunch the last couple of weeks. It is a really pretty album. Favorite band right now is a band out of Baltimore called Among Wolves. Look them up, they deserve a bigger audience.
Food: Italian, real mexican food (not the canned crap they serve in all the restaurants), pizza, Blue Coast Burrito - Fish Tacos. I do like music, just thought it would be funny.
The six things I could never do without
Nothing. Actually trying to have less anyway.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I wish I had more time.
Anatomy is destiny.
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Edgar Allen Poe
He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.
Except our own thoughts, there is nothing absolutely in our power.
Perfect numbers like perfect men are very rare.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends. Listening to music usually. A beer is optional, but almost always around.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like peas.
I’m looking for
Girls who like guys
For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, activity partners
You should message me if
You are self sufficient. You do not need someone to feel complete. You are fun and active and want someone like that.
