My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nerd. Probably good for you to know. I pick up languages whenever I get the time, dabble with computer code, and yes, that's me playing the banjo in the picture above. I can name nearly all the Kings of England . I once studied kung-fu.

I'm also pretty cool though, or at least that's what I've forced myself and others to believe. As a general rule, I have no trouble just going somewhere on my own. I'll either come out with some new friends, good memories, or a resolution to never go there again.

For now I'm fine with just taking things in and getting to know people, but I think I've finally figured out what I'm looking for in a girl, and while I'll still date around a bit I've got half an eye on the long-term.

Basic facts: Former Military, plan to retire into academia, and I like a good strong single malt scotch to diffuse the anomie of Western Civilization. I'm also a bit old world, so if I get your chair for you don't be alarmed - I revert to that when I'm nervous, which I probably will be even if I don't show it. Pretty faces can be a bit inconsiderate about flustering me. I don't blame them. It's what they do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a freelance journalist writing for a couple tech and games outlets, and do whatever other work I can scrounge up. I've just arrived in Phoenix, and I'm looking to spend the next two years hopping around the globe and writing.

I have a daydream of becoming a shepherd and moving to Wales.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Words. Lots of 'em.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
First they usually notice the tall thing. Then they get around to realizing that the low rumbling sound is me attempting to communicate. If they strain their ears, they realize I'm usually speaking english, but can't keep in the same accent for long. Then they realize it probably wasn't worth listening to a tall, rumbly-voiced, pretentious twit and go home.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books. I like them. Definitely a fan of the heavier sort, Hegel, Baudelaire, Homer... you know, dead guys, frequently German. I also have a soft spot for the better "children's" books, like The Little Prince and Winnie the Pooh. I do read other, more age-appropriate things for fun, but I will judge you for liking Twilight.

My favourite movies; High Noon, OCTPOB, Casablanca, The Seventh Seal, Shadowlands, Andrei Rublev, Harvey, Up!...

Music; Welsh folk, Phish, Fleet Foxes, Earl Scruggs, Hank William Sr, Bowie, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, the Stones, Beck, Rjd2 Palestrina, Bach, Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Gerald Finzi, Benjamin Britten, John Tavener, Chesnokov, Blues, old-time, quality Jazz, and other likely randomness.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm changing this to rather not do without. Less drastic that way.

My computer
The Welsh Rugby Team
local pub
Formula 1
Something to read
A hat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to write next
Philosophy of History
Tech, games, and how they're changing how we interact
What I'm eating for dinner
How to grow the business side of the writing thing
All of the above in the context of the Church
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually writing, with friends, or watching something stupid on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Since coming to Phoenix my furniture situation has become even more dire. I like to think of my lack of a bed as Spartan contraception.

You aren't appalled yet.

Even better would be if you have a question or criticism.

If you agree wholeheartedly with everything I say here 1. Seek help. 2 don't just say I'm perfect, tell me what you think. I'm not going to solve all your problems, and I'm not looking for someone who can't keep me honest. If you're that into me after reading my profile you're not looking closely enough.
