So, is this your life? The Renaissance Festival?
Not my life — I work on bridges, play paintball, I'm in a band, and that's my real life — but a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come to a festival like this, get dressed up, have a good time, and hang out with people who are of a like mind. And I'm extremely pleasantly surprised to find out that there are so many people into it, traveling around, dressed up. It's a good time.
And does this play into your romantic life at all?
If I could meet a bangin'-ass redhead dressed up like me, that would fulfill so many fantasies.
I'll keep my eye out. So, that's what you're looking for?
Well, it's not that I came here looking for that. But sure, if I could find someone who was into anything that I'm into, of course I'd love that.
Okay, so what are you into?
Well, besides the obvious — we're at the Renaissance Festival, I'm dressed up — anybody who can fight with swords, martial arts, paintball, lacrosse.
Does the Renaissance theme come into the bedroom at all?
I probably would not dress up like this normally. But if asked, I would definitely dress up like this whenever. Why not?
What are some dealbreakers that you wouldn't be okay with?
What's a dealbreaker? I seriously can't think of anything. I'm open to almost anything. Oh, wait, maybe... are you a dude? That's a dealbreaker, sorry.
So there is something. What is the kinkiest thing you've ever done, since you rarely say no to anything?
A threesome. Thirtieth birthday, best present I've ever had. My friend and her friend. It was great. It was an extremely nice gift.
What else, other than a redhead who's adept at sword-fighting, are you looking for?
You know what? I'd actually just like to find someone. Seriously, stop playing around, find somebody.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Actually, no. Anybody can say "screw it" and just attach themselves to someone, just because they don't want to be alone. You have to take the time to get to know somebody, find common ground and interests. But just looking at somebody — I've seen a hundred girls here, I love them. They're hot. But I'll probably hang out with them for ten minutes and realize, "This is the biggest mistake of my life." It's not worth it. You've got to take the time, you've got to do the work. If you don't do the legwork, you're not going to get anything out of it.
Any advice for people who may want to meet someone at the Renaissance festival?
Well, I've met a lot of people here who are cool and open and into what I'm doing. There's a lot if you're open to it. The only thing I can say is: free yourself, open up, and have fun.
