My self-summary
I'm starting to think I need to rewrite this whole thing.

Who Am I? well 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, everytime 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?

Im a nerd, I play video games, read comics, watch sci-fi and action flicks. But I also do martial arts, I rock climb, I enjoy hiking and camping, I cook, I (attempt to) write... I like to call myself an "action nerd."

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
I am a chef. Even went to Johnson and Wales, and earned myself a degree in the culinary arts.
I’m really good at
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 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
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 here.

Food. All of it. I'm a chef, remember? It's my crack.
The six things I could never do without
(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.
On a typical Friday night I am
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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once killed a man in a bar fight. I had taken the last buffalo wing, and when I had looked in to that man's killer eyes, I knew I had to defend myself, or die trying.

sometimes, I pull out his wallet, and whisper to myself, "Ryan Gurshwald, You poor son of a bitch."

also, I enjoy telling outlandish lies. :-P
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–33
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like what you have read, or what you see... Hopefully both.

I'm looking for someone very specific. I want to meet an intelligent woman, who loves to make dumb jokes. I want to meet a woman who is constantly trying to fight off boredom. I want to meet someone who doesn't have it all "together." Because I don't have it all figured out, either. I want someone who can sit in silence and watch a movie. I want to meet someone who isn't afraid to kiss me in public. I want to meet someone who can talk with me about string theory and the walking dead in the same breath. I want to meet someone to make love to. I want to meet someone who thinks once a month isn't enough. I want to meet someone who doesn't see much need in clothing while indoors because curtains exist and naked is comfortable. I want to meet someone who is creative, but doesn't call themselves an artist. I want to meet someone who can list off three personality flaws that she has, without thinking about it. Because the very best people are humble enough to know they aren't perfect. I want to meet someone who knows that there is nothing wrong with her face, or body. I want to meet a girl with tattoos. I want to meet a girl that enjoys looking at the moon. I want to meet someone that loves food. I want to meet someone that loves to try new food. I want to meet someone who does things because she wants to. I want to meet someone who knows what TARDIS stands for, because I don't. I want to meet someone who doesn't ask me to do things because she knows she is fully capable. I want to meet someone who asks for help when she needs it. I want to meet someone who isn't afraid to love, but understands exactly how dangerous of a pastime love can be.

Maybe that's you. Maybe you'll read this, and send me a message.

Also, from the way I understand it, guys don't get many messages in general. I know I don't. So, brighten my day. Send me a message.
