My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello there and welcome to my profile, my name is Brad and I'm on this website because I'm looking for someone with whom I can start a relationship with.

As overused and cliché as the phrase is, one of the best ways to describe me is to say that I am very laid back and easy going. I'm almost always in a good mood and I have a pretty calm nature. I am a pretty traditional introvert meaning that I prefer smaller groups and that I'm not a huge partier, and I usually score an INTP or INFP when I take the Myers-Briggs test. I would also describe myself as a conservative, both when it comes to values and politics. When it comes to relationships, I like to take things slow early on and not rush things (either physically or emotionally), but please don't take that to mean I fear commitment as this is not the case.

Thankfully my mother refused to play activity director for me when I was little, so I've always been very good at being independent and entertaining myself. Some of my favorite outside hobbies include going shooting (shotguns being my favorite), archery, going hiking, camping/backpacking, bowling, water skiing and jet skiing (sadly I don't own a boat or jet ski), boccie, tennis, and swimming. When I am relaxing at home I enjoy video games, TV & movies (primarily fantasy and science fiction), reading, learning/researching, friendly poker games, other card games, and the occasional board game. Some of the topics/hobbies that I have become interested in lately, but as of yet have no personal hands-on experience with, include gardening, hunting, and homesteading.

I would also describe myself as a huge dog lover and look forward to the day that I have a dog in my life again. I do not have one currently because I like the larger breeds (like huskies and german shepherds) and I live on the top floor of my apartment and my work is too far away for me to come home to let it out at lunchtime.

I should probably mention, because I see them listed so often in other profiles, the fact that I do not enjoy watching sports or going dancing.

I think that about covers the basics. Feel free to let me know if you think that I've left out something critical.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working at my full time job during the day and on a Masters in Computer Forensics by night.

Aside from working, I just try to go out on the weekends and have as much fun with my friends as I can, and/or enjoy a quiet relaxing evening at home either playing games, watching TV shows/movies, or reading.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
laughing (it's pretty easy to make me laugh),
solving problems,
using technology/electronics,
entertaining myself and avoiding boredom,
handling/dealing with stress,
learning new things,
video games,
and trap shooting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the fact I have a longer than average profile.

I'll let you be the judge of that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
When it comes to books, games, and movies I have a common interest in all of them: a powerful story. I love big epic "plots." Think on the scale of Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Star Wars and and you'll get the idea. I love getting immersed in a great story. They can be fun to talk about, but I don't obsess over them either.

One book series that I've finally managed to start is the Song of Ice and Fire. I LOVE the Game of Thrones show on HBO, which is based off the books, and because the book is almost always better than the movie/show I figure they must be really good. I'm still only on the first book but I'm enjoying it so far.

My all time favorite shows are Game of Thrones, Stargate, Dexter, Buffy TVS, The Tudors, Rome, Spartacus, Southpark, Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Duck Dynasty (my guilty pleasure).

I LOVE spicy food. Asian and BBQ are probably my top two favorites. I've also started trying to eat much healthier and follow the Paleo diet as best I can. I've read quiet a bit about it recently and I believe that there's enough science to back it. Most of what I eat now is organic and much better, but it's going to take me quite a while before I stop missing/give up fried chicken, french fried, and philly cheesesteak subs!

In terms of music I prefer rock and epic soundtrack stuff the best. Hanz Zimmer, Howard Shore, Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Disturbed, Two Steps from Hell, Immediate Music, Linkin Park, Red, Three Days Grace, Rise Against, and Skillet are a few examples. I sometimes listen to contemporary christian music. I'm also starting to like country music as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
Liberty, the internet, friends, good stories, a safe place to live, and good music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hoping that the weather will be nice for the weekend. One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning or afternoon is to go to the local shotgun club and shoot a few games of trap (the one where you shoot the orange clay disks). Easily in my list of top 3 favorite things to do. Very recently (7/19/14) I shot my first perfect game (broke all 25 out of 25 targets), so that was a happy and exciting moment that definitely made that weekend.

I also spend quite a bit of time thinking about what my life is going to be like 5 years from now. Ideally I will have found a beautiful wife I have a ton in common with by then but we'll see. I'd also like to have a different job by then too.

I've also been thinking about/researching topics about gardening, permaculture, and homesteading. While I have no real world experience with any of them, I think it might be nice to grow a lot more of my own food someday. I plan to try to grow a couple of things in pots on my balcony next spring and see how well that goes!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with my friends or being lazy and watching TV, playing games, learning something, and/or reading a book at home.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The short answer to this question is if you think we might be a good match and that we share enough similar interests and values. I am looking for a nice conservative Christian woman that I can build a strong marriage with.

I am very sincere when I say that I am ultimately looking for someone to marry that I am compatible with. In my mind that means that we have enough similar and compatible interests/hobbies, values, religious beliefs, political ideology, and life goals. That might be a "no duh" statement, but it is the primary filter with which I use when browsing and evaluating profiles so that's why I mention it.

For example, one of the first things I look for when viewing a profile is to see what the profile author's religious beliefs are. I am a Christian and it's very important to me that anyone I date/marry be Christian too.

Another example is with regard to political philosophy. I am not a registered member of any political party, but my beliefs tend to most closely align with those of the Libertarian party. I do not believe that I am romantically compatible with anyone that describes herself as a democrat, progressive, liberal, and/or socialist.

Hobbies and interests are pretty important to me because time is very precious and very finite. I believe it is very important for couples to share a few interests together and I also believe that it's equally important for a couple not to hate their partner's favorite interests. As I mentioned above, I really enjoy sport shooting and own several firearms, so I am not compatible with anyone that really hates or fears guns for example. Similarily, watching sports is an example of one interest that I do not have, so anyone I date has to be OK with that. For the record I am very open to exploring new and sharing existing hobbies with a significant other, but I've just never been in a relationship before with someone that didn't already share some of my interests, so I struggle to picture one working or forming with someone if we don't share at least a few of them. And extra bonus points if you already enjoy shooting guns and/or playing video games (but an openness to trying them is nearly as great)!

And since I've already mentioned a few compatibility considerations (call them "deal-breakers" if you want), it's probably worth mentioning that I am unable to live with anyone that either now, or really wants to, own a cat. I think cats, and especially kittens, are cute but unfortunately I am very allergic to them and being around them for any longer than 30-60 minutes triggers an allergic reaction. I have tried all kinds of tricks and [legal] drugs to combat that allergy without success. Thankfully they are the only animal that I am still allergic to as far as I know. So I don't think that it's a wise idea to explore a relationship with someone who'd ultimately have to give up her kitty to marry me.

Since I have gotten a few messages lately from people that live out of town I should mention that I am not interested in beginning a LDR, so I am not interested if you live more than about an hour from Northern VA.

So with all that having been said (typed?), please don't feel shy about messaging me one bit. I read all messages I receive and I try to respond to most thoughtful messages. Please be aware that I will ignore all messages I consider to be lazy or don't easily facilitate a conversation (messages that are only a simple 'hi' or 'what's up').

If you're considering sending a message but you can't think of what to write, then you could try listing what you liked about my profile, asking me a question you're curious about, or mentioning what you'd do with your life if you suddenly were worth 100 million dollars.
