So… I think there’s a chance that I might end up alone as that crazy old cat guy whose friends all get married and gets tired of being the third wheel, so he gradually shuns society and becomes so reclusive that the only time he goes out is to take a cat out for walks. And part of me thinks that might be kind of awesome (cat behaving on a leash? can it be done, or will he just end up chasing squirrels?). But then there’s another part of me that remembers how it was always my dream as a little kid to grow up someday and meet my future soulmate on an online dating site. I’m sure many of you had that same dream, so let’s make it happen.
I think I’m a pretty okay person. I’m not an axe murderer. I’ve never joined a cult. I teach kids, and I’m pretty good at it. Teaching’s not very manly, and I guess I’m not that burly lumberjack type that can survive for weeks in the woods by recognizing which berries are poisonous and which are edible and being able to build a fire by rubbing two sticks together. In fact, I’d happily go camping, but if I’m supposed to lead our excursion we’ll probably get eaten by bears (I did hook up my sink and garbage disposal when had my kitchen redone though. It was probably the manliest moment of my life. I mean, not to brag, but I did end up using a hacksaw. Just saying). I’d rather play board games than party – unless it’s a board game party. I don’t watch much reality tv though it’s ok if you do, but just know that I can’t tell you why the Kardashians are famous (wait – can *anybody* explain why they’re famous?). I read books, I draw, and some of my favorite movies are little indie flicks because I like being surprised (but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy watching some superheroes on screen either). I like music with good lyrics, and lots of genres, but with a slant towards mellow acoustic folk rocky stuff for live shows, because then I can still hear afterwards. I love good food, and I love traveling to try good food. Most of all, I like late night conversations about anything and everything, from life and love to does the universe go on forever and what happens when you die. And I think it’s okay if we don’t like exactly the same things.
