Male seeking Female,
More About MeI'm Chad. I am 28 & a fairly poor speller for my age and education. I often say something awkward during a conversation. Nothing vulgar or obscene, just a little strange sometimes... I really don't intend the apparent strangeness, and typically I don't find these things to be so strange. I'll just be speaking and... oops... I drop some comment that brings everything to a brief awkward halt. So, there is that going for me...
My current circumstances tend to be at the center of most of my friends humor these days. My circumstances being my roommates, my roommates being my parents for the moment. It is seriously temporary, and, it is seriously unfortunate...& a little embarrassing, but whatever - it's also the truth - and pretty funny, I guess. [Excuse: Until recently, I had been living in Spain, for over a year - my second time living there. I just returned to the States and I'm in this unfortunate state of transition.] So... I guess that little fact is pretty attractive, right?
When I buy groceries, or really anything, I can never (ever) take the first or front box/bag/item on the shelf or rack - I try and take the 3rd one if possible...if there's only one there I just won't buy that item or I will drive to another store to get it.
I am a huge fan of the platypus (the animal) & hippopotamus (the word). I consider myself to be reasonably interesting, intelligent, a little eccentric (for some), pretty cultured & extremely entertaining... & I have an excessive habit of using ellipses [...] when I type anything informal.
