Do you really want to hear the typical B.S. everyone else writes? Sorry, I just ran out of B.S. so, my name is Brandon and that is all you get. If you want to know more about me you can do it the hard way like everyone else. :) Ok, thats a little harsh. I guess I could give you some info about me. I Draw,listen to metal, Play electric bass, read way too much, live alone,have no kids, like playing pool, movies are good and I like to roll around in the grass for no reason at all.Also, my favorite quote "If the world didn't suck, we would all fall off." Oh yeah, I am not a member so if you want to talk, you have to leave me a way to get in touch with you.
Well after a string of bad dating choices I'm very much ready to find a girl who brings the best out of me, and I do the same for her. I'd love to meet someone who challenges me to the core, who is witty, well-read, and is able to laugh at herself. I am a pretty easy-going, down to earth guy. I love the simple things: a good barbecue with friends, a quiet night at home, etc. Thanks!

“Soon after I entered the famous red burlap room with pictures of dreams on the wall, he summoned me to his inner office. He did not speak to me but sat in expectant silence … I had to find a suitable conversational gambit … I told him about a small boy about 4 years of age who had displayed a conspicuous dirt phobia. He kept saying to his mother, “I don’t want to sit there … don’t let the dirty man sit beside me.” … His mother … was dominant and purposive looking …. When I finished … [he] fixed his kindly therapeutic eyes on me and said, “And that little boy was you?” Flabbergasted and feeling a bit guilty, I contrived to change the subject. While Freud’s misunderstanding of my motivation was amusing, it also started a deep train of thought …I [had] told him of an episode on the tram car on the way to his office.”
