Welcome to SOULMATE, we are a real-life city role play set in the fictional town of Mariet, Louisiana. Its real life with a twist, can you find your soulmate? Cupid can help you. Over 7 years and still going strong!
Spring has sprung, and has apparently sprung a leak. The neighboring town of Descartes has started to flood due to storms from the gulf. Many back roads are out, and the township needs help!
Mariet citizens are being asked to help with sandbagging, fundraising, and helping their fellow Mariet County residents in their time of need.
BOARD AVAILABLE UNTIL: 31st May

Height: 5'11" Build: Heeeeeeeeeeee's actually pretty decently muscular for a nerd. Must be the hapkido. Hair: Naturally black, sometimes dyed a lighter shade. Eyes: Dark brown Skin: Mediterranean. Beauty marks on both cheeks. Like honestly right in the middle of both. It's weird. Mods: He's got a tattoo of Mario on his right calf and Luigi on the left, and a Watchmen logo on his wrist. Yeah. Like you really need to advertise your dorkdom, Hales. Clothing: Henleys and jeans. Sometimes shorts.
Haley is a sweet guy, which automatically situates him knee-deep into Friend territory without the benefit of anything to defend himself with from the inevitable tides of, "I think it's better if we just kept this platonic," and "I like you, just not in that way," and, his personal favorite, "I thought you were gay." That's okay, though, because he's got a surprisingly busy social life for guy that wears Thundercats boxers anyway.
Hales is always doing something. You won't find him online before 10 PM, and that's only because everything but the bars are closed by then, and the only time he'll sit in front of a tv these days is if everyone else is. He's not fond of inactivity in general. Whether or not what he's doing actually involves someone else, chances are he's doing something relatively odd or tedious.
He's exceptionally loyal to his friends and prefers a few close companions to having a multitude of acquaintances, mainly because he's accustomed to being teased due to his interests and somewhat mediocre social skills and finds it difficult to open up to people. He doesn't like having to explain things. And while he's usually pretty patient (you'd have to be with four younger siblings who all alternate between screaming in your ear for hours at a time and actually being decent human beings) stupidity really, really annoys him. He hasn't got much of a temper, things just annoy or frustrate him. Eight years learning a disciplinary art kind of ingrained it in his head that it's bad to, like, punch your hand through a wall because someone drank the last of the chocolate milk. So at least he's got that going for him.
Because of his many obscure interests, Haley usually seems pretty detached from the world outside his immediate attention. While this laissez-faire attitude keeps his life focused, he doesn't realize the vibe that he can give off - you have to be crying before he'll notice that something is wrong. Once he realizes that someone's upset or bothered he's a sweetheart about it, it's just that the poor guy has about as much intuition as a sack of potatoes.
In way, he's a total manchild. He does pretty much everything that's expected of him - he works decently hard, he pays his bills mostly on time, and he knows to deathglare his sisters' gentlemen callers - but he still lives at home and hasn't grown out of his lifelong love affair with Marvel. He doesn't really want to, to be honest.
Haley's parents met at the University of Michigan, which is probably the least romantic place on the planet to write about; his father was there for business and his mother for engineering. Like most families that relocate to Mariet, they did for work. Haley and his four sisters (you heard me, four) were all born and raised in town.
In high school, Haley sat at that one table that's always arguing loudly over whether Mystique could ever come close to being as hot as Samus Aran, and yes, he had a binder of Magic cards. That he brought to school. It was that bad. He took Hapkido classes after class instead of trying out for sports, and while he was never quite LAST when getting picked out of a lineup for soccer, he was in the definite lower rung when it came to hand-eye coordination. He worked on lighting crew for four years of winter and spring musicals, which was enough to qualify him for a letter jacket that pretty much everyone that went to school with him thinks was probably pretty undeserved.
I'd like to say that after graduation everything changed, but frankly it really hasn't - while he was accepted to a fancy film school in California and has attended a year and a half of it, his little sister's health complications compelled him to take a voluntary couple semesters off and return to Louisiana. Currently Haley works full-time and spends most of his spare time with his D&D friends, some of whom have yet to realize the benefits of showering daily.
Knit Hats <3
Nia Vardalos movies.
When stevie has to write likes and dislikes lists.
This is optional. If N/A currently you may leave blank to fill in later.
YES I AM AWARE THAT I HAVE A CHARACTER WITH ALMOST THE EXACT SAME NAME.
Haley's dad is Lebanese and his mom is an American with mostly Austrian and Polish roots.
As well as being able to speak it casually, he can read and write in Arabic. And Tengwar. That's the alphabet from LotR. Yuuuuuuuuuuuup. Another summer well-spent.
His life goal as a kid was to be grow up to be Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.... and come to think of it, it still totally is.
The only man he would ever seriously consider sleeping with is Jason Schwartzman. And he'd have to be dressed as Gideon from Scott Pilgrim.
He's a 2nd degree black belt in hapkido. Derp.
