I'm thinkin' this is impossible...
If I have never talked to you, please do not send
a friend request...
I moved to Seattle, WA in December 2005 and
graduated with my Masters of Science from Valdosta State University
(Valdosta, GA) in May 2006.
I am from Arkansas originally. Yeah, I do have a
bit of a Southern accent (ya'll).
I'm not a big club guy, but now and
again is tolerable.It just seems like that is
mainly what the majority of the gay population
cares about.I am not being negative when I say
that.I just prefer other activities if possible.
I like guys who have more to say than "lol," "i
c, " and "ok." I'm not into guys into excessive
partying. Basically, I like guys who are low-key,
thoughtful, and laidback, as in, they don't freak
out because the restaurant put a pickle
(NoOOoOO! Not a pickle!) on
the burger they ordered when they asked for none.
I'm into guys near my age.
One of my big interests is playing video games. Yes, how nerdy. I
am a computer guy also. I also tend to like
Sci-Fi, but not of the cheesy horror kind, but
more of the tech-oriented kind. I might have nerdy
interests but I'm not necessarily 'nerdy.'
I play the piano. I play the trumpet also, and
this was my main interest during my band nerd
years, which I miss. I've gone through several
years of Taekwondo, which I need to get back into.
I've lived down a dirt road (and that was one
bumpy sucker). I own a 1968
Mustang (mostly restored, minus some
things here and there). Vroom. I also try to work
on it when I have the time, space and tools.
I like nature. I find
an 'internal connection with things such as simple
sunrise, the leaves blowing in the wind and that
light 'pat' of snow falling on the ground.
I am a goof, or so I say. I like
to be pLaYFuL. I'm very empathetic.
I really get frustrated when others do not communicate effectively
and/or shut themselves down. Communication is
important. I believe most people fail to
understand that language is dead. The only meaning
inherent in language comes from each individual
communicator. Because of this inherent lack of
'truth' in language, understandings vary. Yes,
understandings between people do overlap, which
allows us to communicate. However, like the
overlapping sections of a circle in a Venn Diagram, entire meanings between people
are not always sync'ed. You have to realize this
in order to effectively communicate as well as
listen. Questions are not bad. Mental
laziness or resistance is a path to nowhere,
especially in terms of communication. It may not
always be easy, but once you get the wheels
turning, mental barriers can fall. Put forth the
effort. IDK or LOL does not tell me much of
anything. Even if you do "IDK," expand on that
somehow to let me know your brain takes up at
least a little space in your head.
Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Do what
you say, and say what you do. Transparency is
important. If you make a promise, even a light
promise, stick to it. If you are absolutely
unable to, which can be understandable, then communicate the situation. Do
not ignore it. I like people who are responsible
in this regard. It is important that a guy (or
anyone) have respect for
the feelings of others. No matter who that other
person is, you have (I believe) an
obligation to them as a fellow member of
this society, of this planet, to respect any emotional or
physical impact you may have on them. Personal
pursuit is fine, but not at the blind or
purposeful expense of others, in which you have
Anyway, I have plenty to say, ha. :D ... If you
want to know more, let me know.I'm actually a
purty nice man dude... maybe too nice, but
whateva.Try it and see.
