This is the part of these things that I truly despise, the dreaded part where I have to talk about myself. I can't stand talking about myself because it ends up sounding so arrogant and pretentious, but this is a situation that sort of demands it so you can learn a little bit about me and decide if you want to learn any more. I feel like if you stop learning, you're not really living . . . You're just existing. I got my first Masters from U of L in English (Literature). I've always been a reader and writer and this was just the natural place for me to go. I absolutely loved it. I felt so at home I loved to sit and study poets and writers from centuries ago, trying to write something that could compare with their work. This is where I realized just how deep my love for the arts was.
A little bit more about myself…well, the most important thing is that I'm a people person. I would much rather be around people than anything else. The way I figure it is that every day we're here is one day we could not be so let's freaking enjoy it. I recognize that as one gets older, life attempts to suck all of the fun and spontaneity out of one's life and I'm determined to fight against that. Life is what we make it and if that calls for acting like a jackass all in the name of having a good time, then I'll gladly do it. Physically, I'm average except for my height which is 5'3 so if you just can't find it in yourself to be attracted to short guys, then I won't be your guy. But we could still be friends. It's cool.
The reason I'm writing on this site is because as I've gotten older, I've watched all of my friends do the normal life thing and start families. I haven't found the right person and so I'm the only single guy remaining. That can lead to a lot of boredom. I'm past meeting girls in bars. I want to meet a mature, loveable and affectionate, fun-loving girl that would love to make a new friend. I miss connecting with people and it's something I am extremely good at. I will always treat you kind; I can't stand rudeness or incivility.
The first thing people should know about me is the fact that I look so young. I'm 38, but could pass for 21. Part of this is because I'm short (5'3") and the other part is that I have a boyish face. Then they notice my sense of humor. It's really, really dry and goofy, but in a clever way.
My favorite book, movies, and music I can't list because there are literally too many to name. I'm a huge cinephile. As for books, I love them all, well, with a few exceptions. With music, I love it all too, but I do have an overt fondness for alternative Rock.
The six things I could never do without are
1. My family
2. My friends
3. Being able to connect with other people
4. The Love in the world
5. The kindness in the world
On a typical Friday night, you may find me hopefully hanging out with a group of friends. If I'm not doing that, I may be reading or writing, out to see a movie, or in and watching a movie, or at a sports bar watching some big game.
You should message me if you want to talk about anything. Life is a lot about random chances, timing, and luck. IM me and take the random part out of it? :O)
