I get to be the first FishEater to write one up. How fun!
FishEaters Profile v. 1.0
Patron Saint by Confirmation: Sir Thomas More, martyr, scholar, former Lord Chancellor of England under King Henry VIII, patron of lawyers/politicians/statesmen, subject of a great movie starring Paul Scofield, and all-around badass
Children born from past sins or invalid marriage?
None that I know of
EF, SSPX, both, or other? Actually, my primary parish is "Anglican use" (in communion with Rome, not to be confused with Anglo-Catholic, which is not), but I also assist at a motu proprio TLM. I'm not an SSPX'er, but I'm not against them or think they're "schismatic", either. You can call me a pan-traditionalist.
Is meeting someone of like ethnicity very important to you, just a bonus, or unimportant? Not only unimportant, it's also extremely unlikely.
Is there an ideal age range for the person you'd like to marry? How important is this? I prefer older women, 21 to 30. It's just a preference, but 35 is the definite cutoff limit. Unless you're a really aggressive cougar, in which case I have no choice but to be your prey.
I think Erin would approve.
What would the headship of the husband look like in your idea home?
I refer to myself as "Our Lordship"; what do you think?
Of the seven deadly sins (pride, greed, gluttony, sloth, lust, anger, envy), which is the most challenging for you? Lust, I think. I'm a horndog. If you can imagine the hormones of five adolescent males combined.... but if you're a horndog, too, we might get along real well!
What are the most important things you desire in a spouse:
-An independent spirit - I'd like a woman who's bold, adventurous (even "risky"), and speaks her mind. I don't like women who are too timid or mouse-y. Someone who can take life by the balls and say, "let's go on a road trip. To Japan."
- -A creative mind - She needs to have a big imagination. It can be expressed through artsy-fartsy ways like painting, writing, or design; but doesn't have to be limited to that. Creative ways to murder and dispose of previous husbands doesn't count.
- -Interest in academia. She must love to learn. This can be another languages, cultures, literature, quantum physics, or underwater basketweaving. I value a college education greatly (not necessary, though), and will encourage you to get a Master's or PhD. if you want one.
- -Failing the above traits, though.... well, boobs are always nice.
Things you absolutely would not tolerate in a potential spouse: I hate princesses. I'm not a cheapskate, but don't expect me to be the kind to pay for every date. Don't expect me to go out of my way to impress your father, either. I'm a lord, not a gentleman.
Political ideals: I agree with old-fashioned monarchy as an ideal, but for reality, I'm a paleo-libertarian like Ron Paul or Pat Buchanan. Though I'm not anywhere near as politically-minded as I was during, say, high school. I'm just a soldier, sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States and obey the lawful orders of the President.
Employment: Professional adventurer. I fund my adventures with money I earn from the U.S. Army as a reserve soldier, the stock market, and various part-time jobs. This semester, I'm trying my hand at modeling.
What would you like to be doing in 10 years ideally? If you continue on your present course and don't meet the person of your dreams, what do you think you actually will be doing given your gifts and goals? Honestly.... I'll either be a criminal prosecutor, like an assistant district attorney; or I'll be a professional designer, someone who's paid to come up with ideas. Don't wait to marry me until then, though. By then, I'll probably only want to marry other lawyers, just to spite you.
Hobbies: Design. Just to give you an idea of what my current projects are, they include a science fiction trilogy, a comic book composed of still photographs, a powdered wig from scratch, and a new clothing line. Because of a lack of funds, they're not finished, but that will change very, very soon.
Music you actually listen to most often:
Symphonic metal bands from Europe like Nightwish
and Within Temptation
. Various rock ballads from the '80s and early '90s. Film scores by Hans Zimmer, like Gladiator
, The Last Samurai
, and Batman Begins/The Dark Knight
. I also like classical music, but I don't listen to it most often.
Favorite movies/TV shows: Becket. A Man for All Seasons. The Count of Monte Cristo. The Agony and the Ecstasy. Gladiator. The Christopher Nolan Batman films (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). The Star Wars films. As for TV shows, I can only think of a select few anime: Death Note, Gundam Wing, and Trigun.
Serious pet peeves: Sedevacantism (sorry, sedes, but if you are one, I probably think you're creepy). Other than that, I honestly can't think of any right now. I'll let you know if you're one of them.
Idea of a romantic evening: From one of my dating profiles: My first dates almost always consist of getting to know one another while flipping through art and architecture picture books at Barnes & Noble or some other bookstore. If that's just too nerdy for you, thankfully I'm flexible. Not quite flexible enough to settle with a dirty motel and a pair of handcuffs (from a friend's profile), but almost. I do think I would be up for getting dolled up and heading to a night out at the opera, though. What do you say?
If you're a veteran FishEater, you probably already know what I look like. But here are some more pictures anyway, for advertising purposes:
