My name is Ryan. I'm 6'1", 200lbs. My interests are comic books, fashion, learning, cardio, and SCIENCE!. Apparently I'm an ENFJ if that's the sort of thing that gets you excited.
I'm a pretty big nerd on the inside while trying my best not to look like a nerd on the outside.
Why am I here? As a middle school science teacher in my 30's, the odds are high that I'll die childless and alone. I want to make sure that when that happens, it won't be for lack of effort.
The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, or motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize that they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more about the world today than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.
I would say 'taking life one day at a time' but I won't because that's how time works!
Loving you more today than I did yesterday but not as much as tomorrow, though if you wait to sell you may find the love market has crashed out from under you. As your Emotional Investment Broker I would really recommend envy and shame as good low-risk emotions while playing penny emotions like lust and greed for a big payout.
People keep telling me to mention that I can cook and enjoy doing it. So.... there you go. One more selling point.
Favorite movies are The 5th Element, Transformers: The Movie (1985), Happiness, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Brick, Attack the Gas Station, Googlewhacked, Sleepaway Camp (please tell me if you haven't seen this, we'll arrange a screening), The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park, Black Dynamite, Rubber, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Dawn of the Dead, The Shawshank Redemption, and Dagon.
Honestly, Almost every movie I watch I can enjoy on some level. Any movie, even the truly awful ones, can be watched and enjoyed in the right context.
"So long as a film is made without pretension, it's a good movie." Roddy McDowell said that, and he once played a talking ape, so I think he knows a thing or two about movies.
Favorite music is literally everything. I'm terrible when it comes to music, I enjoy all of it. Every single thing. So much so that I've never had the ability to objectively judge if a song or band or performer is great or terrible. Good news: I like your favorite band! Bad news: I like your most hated band! Except for Nickleback, obviously, which I only recently learned is an actual band and not just a word that means "This song is terrible."
Favorite food is a little interesting, I grew up on a strict fast-food diet. My parents were well meaning but busy/lazy. It wasn't until adulthood that I really came to understand that a salad was actually supposed to be food and not a promissory note that food would come soon. I'm in the process of trying a lot of new things and (typically) won't refuse to at least taste something if offered. That said, seafood turns my stomach.
I should also point out that I'm a huge TV junkie. I didn't want to be but then TV just got so good. Futurama, Doctor Who, Community, the IT Crowd, American Dad, Corner Gas, Young Justice, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, How I Met Your Mother, Boston Legal, Venture Bros., Archer, Gravity Falls, even The Simpsons is starting to pull out of its decade long slump. And a big big shout out to MST3K.
I enjoy weighing my natural skepticism against my very strong desire that the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti are real and that one day I could find a genie.
Here's another for you! I own a taxidermy hyena that I absolutely adore. His name is Reginald. My affection for him is 100% disproportionate to how alive he is!
