My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

The name happypizzabear has no distinct meaning to me. It rolls off of the tongue nicely enough and it consists of familiar elements.

I'm a Christian. My faith is important to me. I try to live it out as much as I can. There is no Jesus fish on my car. I don't listen to CCM or family life radio. If someone knows about my faith, I don't want it to be because of my T-shirt or bumper sticker.

I am not a political person. I realized a while ago that the commandment to love my neighbor was simple, direct and of upmost importance. Politics these days seem to dwell on friction. It is easier for me to focus on what is truly important when I tune out of politics.

I like to have an informed perspective and to think about things as deeply and accurately as I am able to. Knowledge is important to me, it makes other aspects of life richer, it is also portable and entertaining.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm playing bass and guitar in a band. I don't know if I'm passionate about music, but I don't think I'm going to stop. I play guitar, bass, ukulele. My musical education is sub-par, but still functional, I regard it as sort of a journey. I enjoyed touring with the band during the last two summers and I hope to continue.

I'm self employed. I'm gaining stability, trying to make up for lost time. I had a difficult stretch of frustrating circumstances, I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've learned a lot along the way.

I'm trying to find a wife. The family jewels are like a ball and chain without someone to work out the inescapable desires with. I'm not looking to be completed, I'm not looking to complete you. I am looking for someone to make a home with that is a friend close enough to be intimate with. I'm intent on approaching love and life always rejecting expectation and premonitions, in preference for valuing whatever I find life to consist of.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I play guitar, the ukulele and play with some other stringed instruments as well.

I have a background in art. I do a lot of little creative projects and DIY things. Art is not what I do for a living, but I still make quite a few sculptures and drawings.

I fix everything I can. I like to make things. I use a lot of things people throw out. I don't go overboard with it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know. I'm a big soft spoken guy who doesn't say much unless I've got a grip on what I'm talking about. I've got dreadlocks and facial hair. When I dressed more conventionally people would always say I looked like Drew Carey, that got old. I feel like I gave it a solid shot at being a normal guy with the business casual, short hair thing. I found it better to identify with the bums. It seems like people cut their hair, choose their attire, abort their children and define their lifestyles according totheir expectation of money and pursuit of it. That seems like idolatry to me, count me out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have been using Pandora for a long time. I hone my stations in. If there is anything I feel like listening to I can usually find it and have some relevant variety. I enjoy music in community from friends and acquaintances. I'm not listing artists, that becomes tedious. My taste in music is great, don't worry.

I have Netflix, Amazon prime video on demand, YouTube, and whatever else. I don't watch movies all the time, occasionally I will have times where I watch several.

I read competently, and I enjoy books, but I find that audio is very nice also. I get as much from audio as I do from text and I find that the audio format is more compatible with multitasking.

I see myself drifting away from ready made culture. I have my old favorites, but music I'm exposed to through community becomes more important. Music that invokes some association or feeling, or has some resonant meaning with the time is more appealing than anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.The Bible
2.Access to information
3.Tools
4.Transportation
5.Shelter
6.Hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't know what this question means. I don't regard thinking as a task, it never stops, except to sleep, even then, dreams come. Thinking seems more like a fire, sometimes blazing, sometimes crackling along, sometimes just an ember waiting for the wind to pick up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't know, I haven't kept a log of Friday nights. I'm game for anything. Let's get some coffee/tea.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I use alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana. This by association appears more debaucherous than my pattern of use. The alcohol and marijuana reduce REM sleep. The tobacco promotes orexin production and is mildly stimulating. I have narcolepsy, and my regular meds are very helpful, but these substances used strategically are very beneficial. In case you haven't noticed yet, our medical system is an immense burden upon people with chronic illnesses. The medication prescribed to narcoleptics to take on the excess REM sleep costs like $4000 for a ten day supply. Given that, I'm very thankful to have Mmj and alcohol available.

I think it's the work of the devil to complicate and vilify anything that facilitates community. Smoking a pipe is very nice, it's like a fragrant little bonfire. Passing a joint around is communal, moral character remains intact, conversation is stirred. Drinking is nice too, there is a sweet spot, and with self control one can loosen up and not be turnt. I'm not so hung up this as the abundance of words may imply; I'm tired of the conversation ending when this comes up. I don't think being a good Christian is about avoiding things. I don't think it's appropriate to act as if the Lord is somehow impotent in a person's life because of a molecule in their bloodstream.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Just message me. In my experience on dating sites, women seem to be too reserved about messaging. I understand being cautious, but this has to be balanced with the objective of finding someone. It seems better to send and receive plenty of messages and see if any of them lead to anything.

I think I'm a pretty safe guy to message. I might look a little stern, but I think most people I know would say I'm a nice guy.

I'm open to different "types". I think that chemistry between people doesn't always have to seem predictable to actually come about. We learn things from each other and share interests as time goes on. We are already likely to be interested in different things. Having a functional relationship is more important than listening to the same music and whether or not we both like sports.
