My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First the things I don't dig:
*lacking sense of humor (all the below can be joked about and more and this includes even with myself)
*watching sports (seriously, don't ask me to join in on that. Love to play but loathe watching. I'd rather do some table top game)
*jealousy (I flirt but I'm good at balancing it with respect)
*homophobes (but they are fun to blow kisses to)
*illiterates (if your mind can't comprehend basic literary works then the sexy is gone)
*close-mindedness (at least make an attempt to think through what you hear and not react instinctively to it)
*liars (controlling or manipulative behaviors fall into this as well)
*zealotry (mostly but not exclusively limited to religious. I'm fine if you have strong beliefs but don't presume I don't have mine and that they aren't equally entrenched)
*racists (ok, I look white I know, but I'm one of the biggest damn mutts you'll ever know. You don't like it? Get the hell off my land pale face!)
*sexists (if you use terms like 'skank', 'bitches', or 'hos' in my presence I will probably toss you in a dumpster... and yes, I have done that before)
*rudeness (non-humorous)(let's be clear, I'm a gentleman, not a sexist. Courtesy is one thing I extend to all who don't earn my spite)
*animal apathy (jokes are one thing, but if you didn't cry at Old Yeller then stay away from me)
*censorship (say what you want, but take responsibility for it and let others do the same)
*alpha bullshit (keep the dom stuff in the bedroom)
*and probably more that I'm not recalling.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spending time with my kids when I have them (2 boys same mother, 16&18), working as a high tech blacksmith with a hint of Magneto, started school with my goal of attaining a masters in engineering (this fills a lot of my time during the weekdays).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-I would thrive in a massage-based barter economy.
-Caring for others. As in being a bodyguard or playing nurse to them.
-I don't have "gay-dar" but I do have "homophobe-dar" and a great capacity for making them umcomfortable.
-Enjoying the ironies of life. It's all part of being an evangelical fukitologist.
-Dancing like a shaved epileptic Sasquatch... enthusiastically.
-Being a human forklift or beast of burden
-Running around in storms like a merry madman
-Being a jack-of-all-trades, especially knowledge wise. And if not on a subject then I will learn enough to converse.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm a geek brain living in a viking body?

For the hell of it I asked friends on Facebook and here is what I got:
="Interesting. You are one of the people that can make me feel petit. Great hugs!"
="trouble with a capital T"
="Umm Wow.. so many years ago. Big Teddy Bear?"
="Large, a bit scary, possibly demented. Appearances can be deceiving."
="When I used to see you in the club I thought you were this big scary bouncer guy, but you're actually sweet and a lot of fun to be around."
="i thought you were a big teddy bear that gives really good backrubs, and nice compliments too, and i stand by that impression!"
="Big, scary, but damn smart and gives great hugs"
="You were being so sweet but scared me because I thought you were one of the bouncers at first."
***there seems to be a theme here...***
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Picking favorites is so limiting, but I am hard pressed to find a series I love more than Game of Thrones right now.

Neil Gaiman is my literary Odin and Christopher Moore is my comedic Loki. I read fantasy and sci-fi but often branch out into other genres. I'm very fond of history including textbooks and the occasional science tome as well. I cannot sleep without having read a book first and my dreams may or may not involve living in a ten story bookcase of 10' tall books hollowed out to make rooms.
*I do follow John Waters' philosophy: if you don't love reading then we are not going to fuck. Just saying.

I love movies but I get tired of romantic comedies if seen too often. I go on binges of watching 'classics' from time to time but my real dirty joy is going MST3000 on crappy movies and pop-culture icons (including Star Wars) (And it was then that Darth Vader realized that when Boba Fett said "As you wish" what he really meant was "I love you"). I'm also big on watching whole seasons of tv series at a time. Right now I'm barreling through Doctor Who and Game of Thrones.

Music... ahh... a weak point for me. I suck at artist names. Some types of music I prefer (industrial, goth, alternative) over others (rap, country, polka) but I don't completely hate any genre per se; all have at least something I can listen to no matter how rare. The one thing I despise is anything where it's obvious the corporate mentality has overcome the artistic aspect for the artist. This why we have so few second albums that match up to the first. The singers and musicians need to passionately hold onto their muses and suffocate themselves in that embrace.

Food, yep, I love it and I love to try new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Eh, screw making a list of this stuff. Let's make it fun from a survival perspective. Every home I live in I automatically in my head try to figure out how to make it work in a zombie apocalypse. My kids are also trained to survive Z-Day. I have a good idea who I would attempt to save. And I plan on using the zombies to pull Amish wagons around with annoying children held up in front of them (and maybe their parents) as public transportation in my rebuilt society.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
~Dream vacations, like visiting the necropolis under Rome
~Friends in need
~How Joseph Campbell influences my philosophies on life
~What will my next ink be
~I'm going to start the Pennsylvania Adolescent Wilderness Nature Domain (PAWND). Parents drop off their kids and let them roam for a couple years until sentience returns. Might even have no-kill safari tours with tazer rifles.
~Is there a connection between the Hokey-Pokey and the number 42?
~Remodeling projects (people who use wallpaper are sadists, and not the fun kind)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dancing, hiking, having some drinks with friends, sketching or doing ink washes of my sketches, spending time with my kids (depending on which weekends), and sometimes just sitting at home reading a book. I play each weekend by ear. Need more bonfires.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
-I'm much more comfortable talking to people in public than I am at initiating first contact of the internet kind.
-That the angel and devil on my shoulders look suspiciously like a Vulcan and a Klingon.
-That my full name makes me sound like a Scottish porn star.

-That I'm basically stuck between wanting to be with someone but most someones I can only look at as friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You read all that then you should have come up with something to message me about. Don't take anything I say too seriously till you get to know me. My sarcasm keeps me sane.

Oh and if you're a nerdy geek, please don't hesitate to show that side of yourself!
