Sexual Orientation: Straight
I like trying new and exotic foods, I like listening to challenging music and I like things that are a little odd or unusual. I have a dark and alternative aesthetic as well. I like dark movies, heavy music, black clothing. Musically, my tastes have brought me to the realm of extreme electronic music. Look up Otto Von Schirach, Skinny Puppy, Venetian Snares or Einsturzende Neubauten on youtube (you might have to go a few videos in to get a good sense).
I used to be really depressed and had crippling social anxiety, but now I just take some pills and I'm all better. Still, though, I might still be a little shy, but I'm working on it.
My sense of humor is wry and tongue-in-cheek, occasionally black. In fact, I love stand-up comedy and aspire to spend more time in some of the comedy clubs in NYC. My demeanor is probably a bit aloof and arrogant, just to be honest here. The aloofness is probably from my tendency to view human activities as if an outsider, like an anthropologist, perhaps. The arrogance probably comes from the fact that I'm a lot smarter than everyone.
I'm 135 IQ (I think it might have actually been 134) which basically means I'm smart enough to realize just how fuckshit insane the world is, but not smart enough to do anything about it. I am certainly a hell of a lot better at linguistic reasoning and thinking than I am at Math. I can't add or subtract for shit and it's annoying. But this does mean that I spend way too much time reading about linguistics, etymology, using words I know perfectly well no one else knows the meaning to, doing word puzzles and getting really annoyed at poorly phrased sentences.
I don't consider myself a nerd or a geek, but I do have that obsessive gene. I like to organize things and categorize things and I like everything to be very logical. I can be quite pedantic and sometimes inform people of too many interesting facts of dubious veracity and interestingness.
I don't consider myself nice or particularly easy-going, but apparently other people do, so take from that what you will. Politically, I used to be very left of center, but I've been slowly moving in the direction of libertarianism and although I no longer consider myself a liberal, conservatives still really annoy me.
I used to be overweight and smoke more than a pack a day, but in the past 9 months I've gotten really into going to the gym. That obsessive gene kicked in there and believe me, you don't want to ask me about my weight-lifting system.
I liked Sim City ever since the first one came out for Mac. The Sims is awesome and Spore is terrible. Rome: Total War and Civ IV are awesome, too, if you know what those are. I say this at the risk of seeming like a hardcore gamer, which I am not.
I love to write electronic music, but don't really do anything with it. If you gain my trust maybe I'll let you hear some of it.
I have a thing for what I'd call utilitarian minimalism. Check out the store MUJI to see what I'm talking about. MUJI is awesome.
Eating, drinking and being Merry describes very well an awesome night out for me. I love going to the city and hanging out in some quiet pub with good food and spending the night talking with friends and drinking. Nothing like good friends, good conversation and good stuff to shove down your face.
One more thing that people might notice about me is that I sometimes have a horrifying sense of morality and a dystopian vision for the future. I went on a date where I totally forgot that you're not supposed to express a desire to eat human flesh. I mean, like, I literally just forgot that was a thing.
What I'm Looking For
I'm looking for someone in the New York / New Jersey area. I go to the city fairly often, so someone in NYC, especially Manhattan would be nice. Smart is definitely a good quality. I know this is kind of an odd thing to say, but a woman who is more dominant and assertive would be nice. Not like just a total cunt, but sort of calm, in charge. Dark sensibilities are nice, even if they don't necessarily match up with my own. But I think that if you read my profile and saw my pictures and found yourself attracted to me, then there might be something there anyway, so send me a message if that was the case.
