Basics I'm a 46 year old single gay man who lives in Ann Arbor. I'm something of a gaymer, and I work with computers. In the last few years I've gotten to a much healthier level of fitness, and learned to enjoy some sports and activities. My favorites are biking, tennis, and dance dance revolution.
Emotions I am extremely passionate about my likes and dislikes. I am ruled by my intuition, and yet I almost never dream. I feel I have been in a rut the last several years and I'm still working on breaking new ground. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm ready to go.
Openness I consider this journal my online diary and I generally leave it public. I do tend to go on about the daily details of my life, because I'm recording my life and organizing my thoughts for me. If you choose to friend me, please leave me a note, especially if I don't know you. The core of the people on my friend list are people I know in person or are friends of my closest friends who I have met. The next biggest group represent online pals who I've known for a few years. There are only a handful of people on my list who I have met on LJ.
Friending I don't friend back just everyone -- I only friend people who I want to keep track of (this is a great tool for that); or who write things I'm interested in; or seem really interesting to me. Since I only rarely post something locked, there's no need for me to friend people to let them keep tabs on me. When I friend others, I look for people who have something interesting to say; blogs made up of just memes or anime reviews are definitely not the things I want. I also don't friend people who only have a LJ to comment in other people's. I very commonly read my "friendsfriends" list, which generates a huge amount of secondary entries on various subjects. Adding friends grows that exponentially and tends to grab tons of community members; so I don't want to bloat that list, for one thing. For another, even if haven't friended someone directly there's a good chance I read their blog a few times a week anyway, either through friendsfriends or by directly checking it out.
