My weight tends to fluctuate. If this is a problem for you, please just keep looking. I want no unsolicited hate. I am a girl. I am on the correct site. No, the LA Zoo is not missing me.
I want someone to like/love/want to be with me, not for how I look since that will change, but for who/what/how I am since that will not. If the picture (once I get it up there) does not appeal to you in any way and you have nothing decent to say, again, please keep the comments to yourself and look elsewhere.
Finding someone decent in this life is hard enough without unsolicited comments. I'll wear a dress and skirt and be girly if I die and my mother buries me in one. Otherwise no, not going to happen.
END OF DISCLAIMER
I have love to give but I don't and won't give it just for the sake of wanting someone to love. Also I don't and won't accept love from someone just because it would be a nice thing to have in my life. That's not a good enough reason, never was, and never will be.
Not to jump ahead, but if I say, "I love you," I mean it, mean that I love you as you are at that moment with all your flaws and all your wonderfulness. If I say it a lot, I mean it a lot.
And you will never be a prop in my story, but please be aware that I also do not want to be a prop in yours.
Some fictional guys I like? Prior Walter as played by Justin Kirk. Points to you if you know who this is.
Who am I? I'm apparently a divining rod for the crazy. As undesirable as this may be, I have a lot of funny and/or weird stories...enough that I could write a book. Maybe I actually should. Anyway lol. I'm too weird for the nerdy people and too nerdy for the cool people. And I don't scare small children when I walk down the street.
What is my personality? My personality ranges from quiet introspection to controlled lunacy and I can have fun just about anywhere...especially Ikea and the grocery store...especially 99 Ranch Market or Whole Foods since I like to bum around and read about everything..
My level of common sense? I can solve a complex differential equation, yet still try to roast marshmallows with a plastic fork.
My sense of humor? I'm sometimes funny and love to make people laugh...even if they laugh at me and my life.
What do I like/know? I have entirely too much knowledge of pop culture. I like french fries and good pizza, yet love authentic Thai and Chinese. I used the hole-in-the-wall, cheap restaurants in the LA Weekly to aid me in my exploration of Los Angeles and still love to do so. I have a computer engineering degree from USC but would rather bang my head against a keyboard until I'm unconscious than read The Linux Journal. I love anything medical, especially neuroscience, but can't stand the sight of blood. You see, I don't make sense.
Where do I come from and how has that shaped me? I'm originally from Pittsburgh and grew up pretty sheltered, but that has allowed me to be extremely open-minded since there weren't that many preconceived notions. I'm playful, loving, kind, and loyal. I'll also go out of my way to help a friend. I'm an excellent listener, enjoy cuddling, and am happier going/renting movies rather than going to a club or bar...unless it's a sports bar and we can watch the Steelers or USC, munch on wings or nachos, and play darts. =)
And while clubs are not for me, I do like raves. They're not meat markets and it's more about letting go, being in front of the speakers (w/ earplugs...hard to let go of the inner nerd), and bopping to the music with others closed in behind you doing the same. I love haunted houses and amusement parks, esp roller coasters. I also like comedic improv and love to sing.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
movies (dramas, comedies, romatic comedies, action comedies, and horror/suspense)
karaoke (Max on Sawtelle and then graduate to a karaoke bar)
just throw down a blanket on the sand, build a bonfire on the beach, sit back, watch the waves, and talk
mini golfing or drive golf balls
go on a day trip (San Diego / Santa Barbara)
find a pool and lounge
attempt to shoot basketball
try Korean BBQ, a restaurant in Thai Town, a Sichuan place in Monterey Park or dumplings in Arcadia
Go find a favorite food truck, grab something, sit at a park and talk
Go to an amusement park
Or if it's near Halloween, go on the Haunted Hayride and Maze in Griffith Park...was really fun
And if you couldn't tell, I really like food. I'm not obsessed in the sense that I eat a lot though I am overweight and need to lose it (weight fluctuates). I'm obsessed in the sense that I'll research where to go and what dishes are reportedly the best because I can't cook to save my life so I don't want to spend money on something and have it be horrible.
