Post by BeneGesseritBrother » December 30th, 2008, 12:47 am

Greetings all- I'm a 30 year-old guy from the Northern U.S. who now lives in Florida.

I'm a professional writer and work in a creative field, at which i'm quite successful.

Outside of work i enjoy philosophy and spirituality, video games, science fiction, fine beers, and cuisine.

Like many guys here, i've had hit-or-miss experiences with women and my social life in general for most of my life. I was dateless all through high school. Had a few girlfriends in college. Turned into kind of a manipulative guy for a while after college, broke some hearts, and decided that path wasn't good for me. I've been celibate by choice for several years now, while i worked on myself and figured out more what i want in women.

As far as my looks, i'm over 6 feet and caucasian. On the heavy side, though not obese. I am VERY funny, articulate, empathetic, and wise. Though not an extrovert in any way, and can be really quiet in social gatherings. I'm a big nerd, though i have some fashion and culture sense when i feel like showing it.

Now i find myself interested in the opposite sex again, yet rather uninterested in the typical dating scene. I think dating and socializing in general these days is kinda sleazy, and is usually mostly about "What are YOU going to do for ME" rather than "Let's go out and connect with people."

I am generally not considered dating material by the majority of young women going for players/rockers/silver spoons. I'm often considered "gay" by those women. Which is laughed at by my gay friends.

I could probably develop a "tortured artist" persona and pick up women that way, but that doesn't seem very much fun.

I have a fondness for women who are very cerebral, intelligent and creative. Though i would like to push my boundaries and have experiences with women who are more rooted in the physical world.

I have a feeling that both could be found through seeking adventures abroad.

I'll be posting here off and on, so talk to you all later.

Welcome to the forum BGBrother!

(Hey, wait. I didn't think the Bene Gesserit allowed men to join. Are you the Kwisatch Haderach?! lol) Note to others: these are references to the sci-fi novel "Dune" by Frank Herbert.

I used to post on some Dune forums many years ago, but then I got tired of them. The spice must flow!

Have you ever read "Neuromancer" by William Gibson? That's my favorite sci-fi book.

As a rule Bene Gesserits did not take on males but Paul Atriedes was trained by his mother, Farad'n Corrino was trained by the same woman, and Leto Atriedes had countless deceased Bene Gesserits awakened in his DNA. Farad'n ended up serving very much as a Bene Gesserit to Leto after Leto became the worm and married his sister Ghanima. Yes i am rather obsessive about Frank Herbert's Dune books. I could care less about his son's travesties.

I like Neuromancer alot. But as far as the Cyberpunk genre goes, I prefer Bruce Sterling's older stuff to Gibson. Accelerando by Charles Strauss is the best cyberpunk-ish story i've read lately.

Ah, I see. I've only read the first of the Dune books.

Have you written any novels or do you write magazine articles?

Have you thought about teaching English overseas?

Yes i've written one book that was published.

I'm actually a writer in the advertising industry so i've written tons of different stuff.

I have thought about teaching English overseas. I don't have a Bachelors degree but so long as i took a class in teaching English i could probably get job placement in alot of countries with my background.

That would represent a big pay cut for me, definately, but it may be a really good option if the U.S. economy continues to self-destruct.
