My self-summary
Hi, I'm Dan. I'm an NJ native, but have been living in Philly a little over 4 years.

I'm unapologetically geeky in terms of my tastes in most entertainment. I can be found with friends at the movies, the shore, concerts, comedy shows, trying to find the best sushi restaurants in the area, playing board games/video games and if the season is right, at Rutgers football games.

I've never been married and I have no children. At this point, I'm too realistic to be going out to the bar or the club to try to meet the right girl. Still love to go out, but not to try to get to know someone via shouting and shorthand sign language.
What I’m doing with my life
Still exploring Philly after all this time. Always something new to find around here.

Just started a new job recently, which unfortunately involves a long drive. I miss walking to work...but at least the new gig is much more interesting than the last. I was teaching myself German, but this largely slowed down due to the time constraints of the new job. On the plus side, I can be seen in my car ridiculously parroting German audio lessons. Not as useful as my prior lessons, but it's something.

I've gotten fairly serious about weight training as a means for improving my fitness. As hectic as life can be I find lifting to be a great chance to focus on just achieving a single task, clearing away everything else, setting a goal for yourself, and giving it everything you have. Being the nerd that I am, the science aspects of weight training and nutrition are very interesting to me as well. The human body is an amazing thing. (Edit: rehabbing a shoulder injury at the moment)
I’m really good at
Talking and listening. Word games (scrabble, etc). I'd say I'm a great judge of character, great at movie/tv quotes (a wildly underrated, if common, skill) and at laughing with my friends (even at myself). Also, frequent use of parentheses, apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Impossible to list it all without this being huge, but here's a few samples from each area:

Books: "Good Omens" is probably my favorite book. Anything by Gaiman, Vonnegut, Steven Brust, William Gibson, or Brandon Sanderson. I'm all over the place, but mostly read fiction.

Recent good reads:
Pages From the Textbook of Alternate History;
Someone Could Get Hurt: A Memoir of 21st Century Parenting;
Wisdom; Compassion; Serenity: First Steps on the Buddhist Path (not a practitioner myself, just find it interesting;
Words of Radiance (see above re: geeky)

Movies: Comedies are generally my favorites, but A Few Good Men, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Big Fish, Tombstone, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Star Wars are some not-strictly-comedic favorites.

TV (still around): Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, Downton Abbey, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

TV (All time): Coupling (UK), Firefly, Pushing Daisies, The Simpsons, BSG (remake), West Wing;

Music: I'll listen to just about anything, but Social Distortion, Weezer, Bad Religion, Rise Against, Jamiroquai, and Me First & The Gimme Gimmes are some that I can listen to at just about any time; a lot more upbeat stuff and hip-hop now make up the majority of my playlists b/c of the gym.

Food: Spicy tuna rolls, NY strip steak. I like to try new things, though I did not try (nor did I come across, actually) the rancid shark meat on my trip to Iceland. I love cooking, but kind of hate that my kitchen is too small.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: The Internet, My Friends, My Family, Barbells, Books, Pie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
National politics. Words with Friends. Han Dynasty's DanDan Noodles.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends to a bar or a movie. Staying in for a movie or Rock Band or a board game.

Cards Against Humanity = New favorite party game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often get caught up in thinking of this section as the "most embarrassing thing I'm willing to admit", which isn't entirely the same thing, but it works out that way. So, I'll just leave it at this -- there is a playlist on my phone that has some appalling pop music that I am almost always tempted to sing along to.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–38
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
You have an appreciation for the absurd. You like what you've read and want to know more about me.
