I'm a quiet, laid-back guy with strong morals and a socially
liberal mindset. No, the two are not incompatible. I believe that
most things in the world are not black and white, and that
fascinates me. I don't usually initiate conversation with strangers
or new acquaintances, but have no problem being friendly with
people I don't know, as long as they are equally sociable. I say
what I mean, if I can figure out exactly what it is I want to say.
I'm not stupid, quite the opposite, but I do deliberate on a lot of
things. I don't like to talk about myself as much as I like to hear
others talk about themselves. I can find humor in most things,
since I'm usually in a good humor myself, but most of the time I
come off as very serious, due to my brevity. Also, I can be terse,
so if you want to have a good conversation with me, don't be afraid
to ask questions that can't be answered with a simple "yes" or
"no." I will. I'm ridiculously less reserved on the internet than I
am in real life (unless I'm with the right person/people), so
forgive me if we ever meet and I'm less of a butterfly than you
What I’m doing with my life
I wish I knew for sure. I haven't found an ambition for anything,
so when I "grow up" I just want to be retired. Maybe then I'll be
able to fully explore my interests. Growing up, there was regular
public education, and my parents signed me up for Boy Scouts and
chorus, but I never felt like I had the opportunity to choose what
I wanted to do for myself. Now that I'm older with financial
responsibilities, it still doesn't feel that way. I guess I'm just
indecisive and apprehensive about wasting years of my life doing
something that I end up getting burnt-out on. Would that be better
than devoting myself to nothing in particular but keeping my
interests wide-ranging? Probably. And I guess that's the sort of
philosophy I should apply to romance, too.
Oh, and my details list me as "dropped out" of college, which is
inaccurate. I voluntarily withdrew. Lessons were going too fast and
not in-depth enough for me to continue going thousands of dollars
into debt for a low grade that would sabotage my own professional
I’m really good at
Most things logical.
Analyzing situations from the point of view of an impartial
Video games, though not necessarily in a competitive sense.
Hearing, and listening, and they're not the same.
Sneaking up on people. Completely by accident, of course. It's kind
of funny, actually. But I DO NOT do it on purpose. Most of the
Singing, at least some songs sometimes. I try to sing along with
songs in the car all the time, even if I don't know all the lyrics,
which leads to some humming.
Getting into a groove when doing repetitive things. But I'm really
nervous and terrible when it comes to actual dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure, I've never really asked anyone about that.
I've been complimented on my eyes before out of nowhere, so maybe
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy novels as well as philosophy and
scientific and historical literature, and the occasional comic book
I watch cartoons, American and Japanese. Some of my favorites are
Batman: The Animated Series, Full Metal Panic!, Ghost in the Shell,
Big O, Outlaw Star, Ouran High School Host Club, and Gantz. I also
enjoy watching the Discovery and History Channels on TV. And I
appreciate good (not lowbrow) comedy.
I have sort of an eclectic musical taste. I grew up listening to
Country&Western, but most of my collection consists of tracks
from anime or video games. I've also been really into jazz lately,
and have recently discovered how awesome symphonic and power metal
are. And I don't have much experience with punk rock, but I can
listen to the entire discography of Fall Out Boy in a single
I'm not really too picky about food. I'll try most anything once,
and usually more than that. I've sampled the standard Chinese,
Mexican, Greek, Italian, German, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Irish,
British, Creole, Cajun, down-home, western, New-English, Hawaiian,
French, and Polish cuisines, and none of them were bad in general.
There are certain ingredients I don't like on their own, but
prepared with other things I can still enjoy them.
The six things I could never do without
- The Internet
- Peace and Quiet
- Interactive Media
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and anything. Especially things that don't matter, and
that most people take for granted. How do things work/what is their
origin, that sort of stuff. Is Balsamic vinegar made from wine
that's allowed to go bad in a balsa wood barrel, for example? It's
not really important, but that's the sort of thing I think about
when my mind wanders.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home! I'm sort of a recluse right now. Could definitely stand to
get out more, but for what?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have absolutely no relationship experience at all and I don't
feel ashamed of it. A little regretful, maybe. I always put my
schoolwork and future plans first, and wasn't any good at picking
up signals anyway. Looking back, I missed a lot of opportunities.
You should message me if
- You like to pull people out of their shells.
- We have a high match percentage; I'd be pretty shy about sending
you a message, even if I think your profile depicts you as an
awesome person. I'll try to get over that.
