My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intelligent, personable young man with grand plans for the future. I've got an intellectual streak a mile wide, and most of my life revolves around discussing unusual ideas with interesting people. I love creative solutions, good jokes, and appreciating life as it comes. If you're a kindred spirit trapped in the material world, shoot me a message!

Just to get things out in the open, I'm on OKCupid because I'm looking for the right young lady to settle down with. If you're looking for someone who will respect you, spoil you, laugh with you, comfort you, encourage you, and shower you with endless love, affection, and spontaneous compliments, I'm your guy. If you're not ready for that, we could definitely be friends, but I don't casually date. Don't let that slow you down, though, if you feel like saying hi. I'm excited to meet new friends as well!

P.S. if you are using Quickmatch and can't find out who I am to message me, my screenname here is Chessman5.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I just graduated summa cum laude from college, and am looking forward to entering the next phase of my life: creating and expanding a series of chess programs for kids with locations in various parts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. In the relatively near future (probably the next several years) I also hope to launch an entertainment website hosting the first recreational shows made by autistics, for autistics. Just seems like the time has come, and it's a project I'm very passionate about. Finally, I am in the process of creating a 4,000 volume library, mainly because I'm a bibliophile. Why specifically 4,000? You'll have to message me to find out!

I'm very big on keeping low stress in life, and spending a lot of time with my family and friends. While these goals sound totally out of sync with launching multiple business ventures, I find I can often combine business and pleasure, ensuring that the time I spend is simultaneously fun, relaxing and productive. In other words, I like to work with friends and have fun doing it!

P.S. It would be great if you're someone who likes working on projects as well, it's always fun to swap ideas and work as a team!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, writing, thinking outside the box, being egregiously sarcastic, supporting friends and offering advice (I jokingly call myself Dr. Joe), and biting off waaaaay more than I can conveniently chew. I'm also a reasonably good chess player, book collector, and spatial organizer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My big smile. Also, the chess set I invariably set up whenever I'm sitting in a public area. You never know when a fellow chess player will wander by! Overall, I'm definitely a larger-than-life personality and I'm very happy that way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's see, where to begin?

I love music, and I'm perpetually listening to songs that catch my interest. Most of my favorite tunes are from the punk and pop genres, but there are plenty of exceptions.

A small sampling of my favorite groups/singers are:
Fall Out Boy, New Politics, John Mayer, Elliott Yamin, The Killers, Matchbox Twenty, Jimmy Eat World, The Script, Paramore, Jon McLaughin, Sarah Bareilles, Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin, Alkaline Trio, Josh Groban and Alfie Boe.

Also, I'm also a devoted concert-goer when time permits. There's just nothing quite like live music! I've seen Paul McCartney once, Third Eye Blind twice, AFI three times, New Found Glory four times, New Politics eight times, and the list goes on. Message me if you're interested in finding out more, or which bands I've met ;)

I spend copious amounts of time reading, and I'm well on my way to my 4,000 volume library already! Last time I checked, I was pushing about 2,000 books, but that figure is almost a year old. I'm sure its grown again. It's mostly sci-fi/fantasy, but I've got all kinds of literature in there.

My favorite authors include Jim Butcher, David Weber, Raymond E. Feist, David Gemmell, David Eddings, Charles Stross, Patrick Rothfuss and Brian Jacques.

I enjoy vegging out on occasion for a movie or television show (just about any kind will do, to be honest, as long as it has smart writing and good acting), and I have a sizable DVD collection to feed my addiction.

My favorite movies of all time (in no particular order) are: Holiday (Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn), The Lion in Winter (Patrick Stewart/Glenn Close), The Man Who Came To Dinner (Nathan Lane), and The Man From Earth (David Lee Smith). A Dog's Breakfast (David Hewlett) and Suburban Knights (Nostalgia Critic/Doug Walker) are close runners up!

My favorites TV shows in the last few years have been Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary, Supernatural, Sherlock, Eureka, Attack on Titan, the first two-thirds of Sword Art Online, and The Sandbaggers. I'm just working through Burn Notice and Once Upon a Time right now, and I'm loving them!

Finally, I love theater and attend performances whenever I can. Live acting is just amazing to watch, and I'd love to share an evening out at the Gamm with my significant other!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My mind
2. My library
3. My music collection
4. My friends
5. Hope.
The sixth thing I could never do without is the young lady I spend my life with (applications for the position available within), and I haven't found her yet so you get five for now!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
History, the societal implications of nanotechnology, ingenuity, and the true nature of man and his world. Trust me, it's more fun than it sounds! I've even created an original/unique Zombie Apocalypse plan because of these issues, and am writing a book about it. Someday I may even finish it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie, reading a book, chatting with friends, playing a computer game and/or asleep. A party animal, I am not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I liked Spider-Man 3. I thought "evil dancing Peter Parker" was hilarious, and I don't regret seeing that movie four times at all. Let the cat-calls commence!

Seriously, though, I tend to be good friends with my ex's. Strictly platonic, but good friends. For example, I'm best friends with my ex-fiance. If you are the "jealous type," I'm probably not the right guy for you. For the record, I would *never* betray the trust of the girl I am with, but not everyone will find this situation appealing. I'm definitely looking for someone comfortable with this, and I am an open book if you want to check my bona fides before making your decision...
