My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an INTP; Wikipedia it if you don't know what it is.

For one thing, I don't think I photograph well. I like to think that I'm funny, and witty, but I can hold a "smart" conversation. I often like to refer to myself as the smartest dumb guy in the room.
The problem here is, every time I take a picture, I feel like my face portrays none of these things, and just says, "I have free candy in my van, climb on in!" Which, for a dating site, not really a good look.

But hey, what can you do?

I'm a nerd, I play video games, read comics, watch sci-fi and action flicks. But I am also a martial artist, a rockclimber, an archer, a hiker, a camper, and a cook. I have many skill sets. I like to call myself an "action nerd." Keep that in mind, I can defend you from would-be attackers, and cook and feed you delightful delicacies. I am a perfect boyfriend for a zombie apocalypse.

I love to make people laugh. On certain days I consider trying my hand at stand-up comedy, but I then I realize what a terrible idea that would actually be.

I'm pagan, too. But that doesn't need to effect you in any way. If you want to talk about it with me, great, if not, I'm probably not going to bring it up first. But it helps me get through my day, which is really anyone can ask of a religion.

I am pretty peculiar. I'm also pretty mundane. I am a contradiction.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a chef. Even went to Johnson and Wales, and earned myself a degree in the culinary arts.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, cooking I hope. I like to think I am good at solving problems. People have told me that I am a good person to talk to about problems or such drama.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate to admit this, my height. I am only 5'5". I would love to say "oh, it must be my rogue-ish good looks, or my general aura of mystery (i am QUITE mysterious. See the sunglasses? proof.)" but, even if those are all valid answers, they would all be a lie, because they are not the FIRST thing people notice. they are usually third, fourth, or fifth things.

I'm short. I cant help it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman, American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman... sensing a pattern?
The zombie survival guide by max brooks, Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonegut, The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain... and MORE...

Movies: (I just realized I buy mainly action and adventure flicks... I do love some dramas, I just usually don't want to watch them multiple times. and because of that, i can't think of them at the moment...)

Confidence, The Warriors, In Bruges, Swingers, Shaun of the Dead, The French Connection, Army of Darkness, Snatch, The Bourne Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (yes, I know they are books, too. I really tried to read them, but they kinda read like the bible.) V for Vendetta, Six-String Samurai... and MORE...

Nearly all Punk. Ska, metal, Classical, I am really all over the board. I could list names, but that would take forever. and besides, how fun would be going out on a date with me if you already knew absolutely everything?

update: I had this idea in the shower. I made a pandora station of what I'm listening to right now. It doesn't encompass all of my tastes, but a portion of it. have a listen HEEEEERE. YOU CAN CLICK THIS. CLIIIIIIIICK.

Food. All of it. I'm a chef, remember? It's my crack.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(I'm guessing the whole "food, clothing, shelter, breathable air" list is a given.)

1. Food. I love trying new and interesting things, and the more masochistic part of me enjoys trying food that other people find disgusting. beef liver sashimi, for example.
2. Cell phone.
3. The "off" button on said cell phone.
4. The internet. It's a seemingly endless river of knowledge and useless, time-wasting videos. As a single male in this modern age, could I ask for anything better?
5. Music, of any kind. I have my preferences, but any at all is good for drowning out the sounds of society.
6. Spell check. without it, this whole profile would be UNREADABLE.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Don't Fall in to the OkCupid Trap.

Okcupid, and other dating sites, hurt single people. I am not sure if ill be able to properly express what I'm thinking here, but I am going to give it a try anyway. so, I am going to start this off from a hypothetical standpoint. or a literal one. my standpoint. the one I'm in right now.

You're single. Previous relationships, though long-lasting, have left some painful marks. You're not just looking for someone special, you're looking for the person that will stick with you until the end. In that mindset, you're more just looking for someone who doesn't set off any of your "red flags," the gut-feeling warning signs, whatever they may be.

Now, By answering a FUCK TON of questions, many of these dating sites run algorithms that will display a rating or percentage on how strong of a match someone might be for you. And this is where the damage starts.

For one thing, this allows you to disregard many potential people almost immediately. If you look further in to their profile, you'll no doubt find more to convince yourself to not send out a message to this person. maybe their vegan, or their grammar and spelling is bad. whatever it is, eventually, you just disregard 100% of your options. Even if you send messages out to people, its unlikely they'll message you in return, because they will have found some small reason to disregard you.

when you meet someone in real life, all you see first is the positives. that person you meet is smart, and funny, and cute, and has a great laugh, and a wonderful smile. You don't know what you don't like about them yet. By the time you start to see the negatives, you've already been roped in by the positives, and the negatives are microscopic in comparison.

But on the internet, its the inverse. you're drawn to the negatives. they are big and obvious and painful. there is nothing to filter them through, or drown them out. over a period of time, No one is good enough. everything looks like an eventual failure. you're then reminded of the pain of your past failures, and you're back to where you started. sitting alone on the internet.

Give everyone a chance. Look at them as if you met them in the the real world, and not as a picture on a website.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, then bar and friends.

Actually, thats a lie. If I happen to not go out, chances are movies or video games will ensue. I just went on a whole rant about being nerdy. I have also been known to do said activities with friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me, and escape.

If you are interested, message me, because I am not going to message you. As of late, my luck has pretty much run out towards the dating scene, and I feel like people are giving mixed messages and not really putting the proper amount of effort in. So if you are interested, and really interested, please message me. But if you're going to just give me one letter or one word responses, and not really tell me anything about yourself or anything that's going on in your life, then don't bother. Also, don't just rate or like me. I am not an a-Lister, I can't see you when you do that.

Message me if you're not interested in playing a long texting game. It gets boring too quickly. I'd much rather have a face to face interaction. Let's meet for coffee or food or drinks or go rockclimbing or swimming... Live life!
