Hello everyone! It's taken me a while to decide whether to write this or not, and I think I'm writing this more for myself than for all of you. Here goes:
My name is Matthew. I'm 24 years old, and I graduated with an MBA in 2013. After being turned down for a few jobs, most notably at the Federal Reserve, I've decided to pursue my doctorate starting in the Fall of 2014. I'm not sure where I'll go, but I know that I want to become a Doctor of Economics. So hopefully I'll have a sweet Dr. title before my name lol
I don't really have any aspirations with my degree. I have a dream, and it's one that I cling to for support. Everything that I do with my life, everything that I achieve, is all to reach that dream. And that is to be the best husband and father that I can be. Yeah, it's silly, but that's what I want beyond anything else is to be a stay-at-home husband/father. I've taught myself to cook, clean, and any other duty that is expected from a stay-at-home. Even my degree is more of a fall-back just in case my future family is in need of more money. I'm naturally a ferociously loyal person, and there's nothing that could be more fulfilling to me than to be devoted to taking care of my loved ones.
As for my looks, I'm 6'4" with brown hair and dark brown eyes. I have an inch wide patch of pure white hair on my bangs, but you can't really see it because I keep my hair in a military style cut. Because I'm half German, my facial hair grows like crazy, so I have a constant 5 o'clock shadow even though I shave every day. I keep a goatee, which is bright red, but I keep it cut short so you can't tell the color. All of my hair colors are natural.
I'm not skinny or fat, but a comfortable in-between. Due to a genetic disease that I have (which is NOT contagious, even if I have kids someday), I can't develop muscles at all. However, I keep my body in the best shape that I can. It is my basic belief that how a person takes care of their body is a reflection of how they take care of other aspects of their life. My key memorable feature is my voice, which has been described as being "drippingly sexy." More than once have people tried to convince me to go into radio broadcasting.
As far as my interests go, I don't have many. I love anime because of the sheer innocence in most animes that I watch. Specifically, I like harem / romance series. Shuffle, School Rumble, and Kanon are three of my favorites. I don't read many books, but I have read most of Terry Brook's Shannara and Landover series, as well as Stephen King's black tower series. I also collect children's stories.
Openly I'm a rather stoic individual. I'm very shy, and prefer to listen rather than talk. Whenever I do talk, I always feel like I say the wrong things. I rarely get close to people, and have only a handful of friends. Privately, I'm a completely different person. I love to talk to people, and I'm very touchy-feely. I like to hug others, and I'm quick to give out compliments or gifts. It's not uncommon for me to go up to a complete stranger and praise their body / clothes / something they said or did.
Yet, my defining trait is that I hate men. I can't even stand to be near them without getting anxious or angry. This stems from many moments in my past that I don't care to think about. (To add insult to injury, I am a man) Because of this, I am usually found around women, whom I'm more comfortable with. For that reason, among others, is why I probably have never been in a relationship. I'm too shy to pursue someone, and I'm always "too much of a friend" to be pursued. I also can't stand authority of any type. I'm rather submissive, but I'm submissive because I choose to be. If anyone ever orders me to do something, I'm quick to rebel.
So that's me. I can usually be found around the Anime forums, or the Gaming forums. I used to play Rift, and played World of Warcraft for 5 years, so those are topics I know quite a bit about. I also was a parliamentarian for four years in high school for a national Student Congress. If anyone ever needs help, I'll do whatever I can. So don't be afraid to ask.
The following statement is the absolute truth: the previous statement is an absolute lie.
