Well, don’t let the dumb jokes and spicy memes fool you. I’m actually quite dying inside!
My girlfriend of 6 years left me a few months ago and it still hurts. She was really my only friend anymore. We did everything together. Now I have no-one here, and no family.
I’m a (self-taught) software engineer but having a hard time landing the next job. Been out of work (in my field) too long and currently working a lousy job (not in my field) just to stay afloat.
I’ve never had family to turn to. My dad’s a drug addict and my mom is some -raisedbynarcissists-level creature. She’s not a real person inside. She’s an imitation of one, with something essential missing. She’s just living tissue over metal endoskeleton.
Longtime sufferer of depression and been doing therapy for a few months but I’m kind of getting fed up with my psychologist. This is my first time.
I’m putting all that up there up front because shallow friendships are lousy ones. We don’t have to talk about all that stuff 90% of the time, but if I can’t be myself then it’s not a friendship in any meaningful sense of the word. And, having been raised by a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 that mimics emotions but can’t really process them, if you don’t have emotional intelligence and empathy then we don’t have compatibility
I’m only looking for companionship, not romance. LGBTQ+ friendly. Open to all gender identities and orientations. Respectful of pronouns.
You can be anywhere (but if you happen to be in Sac and want to hang out IRL that’s cool)
I prefer texting (SMS) but Google Hangouts or Discord is okay. I’d like to voice call sometimes.
Other cool facts:
I’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years, and as such I’m required to tell you about it
I like both kitties and puppers/doggos but don’t have pets right now. Our cat was technically my ex’s so he went with her when she left. I miss our sweet, floofy boy. I miss him crawling up in my face and rubbing noses when he’s hungry, and just petting him for hours.
I was homeless once, sued my government in a First Amendment case, was in the newspaper, and got a (small) settlement check out of it (Thanks, ACLU)
as a coding side-project right now I’m working on an optimizing compiler that emits 6502 ASM (NES)
music: dad rock, synthwave, indie. I like some punk too (e.g. Bad Religion). It reminds me of when I was young and full of piss and vinegar and not an old man who says “piss and vinegar”
gaming: mostly too busy adulting but yeah I like games, retro to present. Got fuck-all to do at this lousy job so I’ve been playing Earthbound on my phone lately.
TV: Ex and I watched The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Bojack, Ash vs Evil Dead. Way behind on GoT, Silicon Valley, Mr Robot
Not really a superhero movie guy except Guardians of the Galaxy is some funny shit.
Not a big weeb like when I was in my 20s but ex and I watched Black Butler, Durarara, Aggretsuko, and I tried to get her into Gurren Lagann (She started warming up to Kamina around, oh, episode 8…..). I like a handful of others but I feel way too old for a lot of it
No thank you:
No strict age, location, relationship status limits except be 18+
