Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I returned to Ohio a little over a year ago. I had been in Denver,
Colorado for about 7 years, first with the military, then while
going to school. I graduated from a 2 year program with a degree in
the IT field.
I'm currently working 2nd shift in IT and just moved into my new
place in Gahanna. It's super cool. I even painted, which was my
first ever DIY-type improvement to any place I've lived.
I like to think I'm "zen." One of my friends says that I just don't
give a sh*t about anything. Isn't that the same thing? I like to
picture the world as a song and, much the opposite of the real
world, I'm fluidly dancing through life.
There are several things you need to know about me:
First, I'm a nerd/geek/dork. I often consider myself a "high
functioning nerd" in the sense that I can write a profile that you
find humorous and charming, but not overly goofy. I am able to
carry on a conversation, I think I generally sound intelligent, and
I don't live in my mothers basement (though I hold nothing against
anyone that does).
Secondly, I'm a confusing mix interests and lifestyles. I'm a nerd
and gamer, I can tell you all about the next xbox and Microsofts
Illumiroom project. I can also tell you that the paint in my new
apartment is Timeless Ruby offset by Country Linens, not Burgundy
and Tan. I ride a motorcycle, though I won't be purchasing one
until next spring. I like cruisers, not sport bikes, and while I
generally don't like the way I look in pictures, I look pretty
f**king good in my leather jacket. In the future I hope to own a
home with a small library/study where I can begin collecting
antique, collectible and ancient books.
I was in the military for about 5 years. It was, without a doubt,
the best and worst times of my life. It's not something I talk
about a lot, but I'm not adverse to discussing it.
I like to sit at my computer and sing at the top of my lungs while
I listen to music. I'm not sure my neighbors are amused. I also
like to rock out in my car, but I don't sing in the shower, because
I'm not so good a capella.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, living, eating, breathing. Wondering when my stock will go
back up, trying to figure out that next "if you don't do it now,
it's never going to happen" adventure. Planning how to be super
successful so that everyone will be just a little bit

I like to be totally absurd. I get a lot of my inspiration from
movies and tv (like Family Guy). Many people look at movies and
say, "You can't act that way in real life."
Because it's unexpected, and that's golden.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

2-The Fifth Element
I LOVE the first Resident Evil movie. Even the commentary is
Stranger Than Fiction and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
were also very excellent movies.
Books: I mostly enjoy science fiction, hard scifi, and fantasy. My
absolute favorite book is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. If you
like video games, 80's pop culture, treasure hunts and a dash of
hopeless romance, you need to read this book. I also greatly
enjoyed The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. On the
non-fiction side, I loved Lone Survivor, and The Professor and the
Madman (an account of the compiling of the first English Dictionary
((the Oxford English Dictionary, if you were curious)).
Tv shows: Stargate SG-1 was the greatest show on TV, it's not up
for debate. Pretty much anything DIY, especially Bath Crashers and
Renovation Realities. Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Archer, Bob's
Music: This is where I list a bunch of stuff you've never heard of,
and you list a bunch of bands that I've never heard of and it does
nothing to draw us closer. So: I like the music I listen to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I recently discovered the awesomeness that is cruise control in my
car. I love cruise control. Quick note: having used it for a while
now, it has really shown me how inconsistently other people drive
and they are making me crazy.
I would come up with some other things, but I'm too unconventional
to list "normal things" ie: food, air, computer, family etc... and
I'm too lazy at the moment to come up with something clever. So,
just know that whatever I would have put here would have
simultaneously been impressive, made you smile, and maybe even
turned you on a little. NBD.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh you know... pondering the mysteries of the universe and
Like whether or not (or which) sitcoms are still filmed in front of
live studio audiences.
I also find myself thinking about people that love their jobs and
why I don't love mine. Have I just not found that job yet, or do I
have the type of personality that won't allow me to love a job?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Okay, serious time. If you don't find me totally appalling, send me
a message. Let me buy you dinner sometime. Worst case scenario? We
don't really have anything in common, and you lose a few hours on a
date with a guy that is delightfully awkward, but definitely not an

I like some chick flicks. I think a lot of guys do, but they're
just not willing to admit it. I enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada,
Julie and Julia, and She's Out of My League.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hopefully if you looked at my profile and liked it.
Protip: don't message me if you've hated everything you read.
Oh, but no zombies please.
Oh, and if you see me stalking your profile late at night, it's
because I work second shift and I probably just got home. I swear
I'm not creepy.
