Being an artist, I am fortunate enough to make much of my hobby my life. However this pursuit can be somewhat hermit-like in nature and every now and again I need to leave the studio and be reminded people actually exist.
I am not entirely an isolated introvert, though I admit the 70 hour + work grind does hinder the social lfe. When time permits my hobbies tend to include somewhat nerdier pursuits including gaming and film. Recently I have jumped into game design with two major projects that are the path to being published.
My tastes vary as far music goes but in general pop, r&b and country will be low on my playlist. A wide range does include my playlist with a mix of electronic, metal, folk metal, punk, classical, and even some goth.
As far as movies I would place horror, science fiction, and fantasy high on the list. I go for mood and setting above all else. Gaming - video and tabletop also represent another way I spend spare time. I am also a bit of a knowledge junkie particularly when it comes to history, science and technology. I miss traveling and it's been way too long since I have set foot on another continent.
So yes, if you describe yourself as any of the following - a gamer, a nerd, or an artsy creative type, we are already heading in the right direction! It helps if you like animals, especially cats, since two of them have managed to adopt me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I am a casual person by nature so the best dates suit to this. Something simple perhaps. A picnic on a beach or a casual walk through a gallery or museum? Convention or gaming event?
Or maybe something like axe throwing or archery? Are blacksmithing dates a thing?
