Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(I realized it still said "single" here in the description, when I
changed my status a while back. Now I'm back [dramatic shotgun
racking] to fix that mistake. I am not interested in pursuing a
romantic relationship at this time, because I'm already in one! So
keep up hope, because I met her on this site, but I'm not
This page will continue to be a work in progress, until it isn't.
But what can you do?
I tend to be a little reserved when around people I don't know all
that well, but I get more gregarious once I've had time to get
comfortable. Expect sarcasm and puns in roughly equal
As to general attitude, I used to be a "t-shirt and jeans" guy, but
moved on to "t-shirt, slacks, and an overshirt" (aka "business
lazy"), though I don't have a problem throwing on a suit and tie or
just a blazer if things need a little class.
A lazy afternoon reading or catching up with friends is more
interesting than a long hike to me, but suggest something to pass
the time and I'll likely be interested.
I'm an avowed geek and I work in the video game industry, so I tend
to be up on the latest happenings, even if I don't play a whole lot
at home anymore and don't touch MMOs with a ten-foot pole. If
you've got similar interests, great! If not, that's also great.
Different strokes for different folks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a writer and editor for a video game publisher, protecting
future generations from the horrors of "Someone set us up the bomb"
in this modern era. Call it being an Engrish Repairman.
I read a lot, I keep up to date on all sorts of things, and I enjoy
my coworkers, so life certainly isn't as stressful as it could be.
All in all, I'm enjoying myself, but I'm certainly capable of
admitting that there's room for more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Puns, general trivia, teaching small children how to
Apparently I give good hugs, but I wouldn't know.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the beard or the glasses.
I'm rather tall, or so I'm frequently told (by short people).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Much too long to list here. My favorite
authors are Terry Pratchett, Neal Stephenson, and China
Movies / TV: I've been without cable for a couple
of years and my TV reception is awful, so I've learned to live
without TV pretty well. That said, Hulu keeps me up-to-date on
Parks & Rec and The Daily Show. Other shows I enjoy are
Community, Archer, Sons of Anarchy (though it's kind of gone off
the rails last season), and Breaking Bad. RIP 30 Rock.
Music: If it's got a beat, I'll probably listen to
Food: It says "Mostly anything" over on the side
there, and that's about the size of it. Sushi? Yes! Thai? Okay, if
it's not too spicy... You can put pineapple in anything and it
would be an improvement. I prefer a decent restaurant to a loud
bar, but fast food and/or takeout is a viable alternative. The best
orange chicken comes from the holiest of hole-in-the-wall Chinese
I'm currently on a quest for the perfect Fish & Chip. If you've
got suggestions, I'm all ears.
Lately I've been attempting to cut caffeine out of my evening
meals, and coincidentally go a teensy bit healthier about what's
going into my body.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to read
The necessary apparatuses to read (eyes, glasses, etc.)
A sense of humor
Not caffeine anymore. I am sad about it.
*TBD, as per my whim.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How'd it get burned? How'd it get burned!?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either blowing off some steam after work with friends/coworkers
getting some good food, or enjoying a movie at home. Bear in mind
that I'm not dating on the "typical" Friday night, and I'm hoping
to change that. That's where someone else comes in. Maybe YOU!?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My stoic exterior degrades in relation to my proximity to cute
animals. You have been warned.
You should message me if

You're still reading this. Congratulations on making it this far,

You happily call yourself a nerd/geek of any sort.

If you listed Ayn Rand or one of her works in your favorites

get to admit to being a snob about something, right?
