I've been a lifelong gamer and it has been such a formative experience for me, especially growing up. Gaming has taught me critical thinking, problem solving, and has introduced me to a worldwide community that I am proud to be a part of.
I've done Shotokan karate for 8 years, but stopped when I moved to San Diego. I might start again someday, who knows. I really enjoyed it.
I'm a very laid-back person, and I feel that people make way too big of a deal out of things that simply don't matter. Petty discomforts are a part of life, get over it. I'm very straightforward and honest in my communication with those who matter to me, and I always encourage my partner to have full transparency with me. I want to know what's on their mind, and I'm always there to be supportive and resolve conflict in a calm, rational, mature way. I like to listen, cuddle, and am the kind of guy who will get you a small present for no particular reason, just because you make me happy.
Rational, logical ways of thinking are a huge part of who I am. I'm a lifelong skeptic and atheist since about 14, and I can seem a bit cold and uncaring at times, but it's really just the fact that I am operating under rationality. What people consider "common courtesy" I often find to just be dishonest and insincere, and I don't like it at all. Be nice to someone if you actually like them, not because you think you're supposed to be nice. I'm not mean to people I don't know, I'm just a bit indifferent. My time is important to me, and I don't want to spend it in the company of people I won't like. For the people I do like, I'm one of the nicest and most caring people you will ever know. I'm totally down to help anyone I like in almost any situation. I'm also quite outgoing with people I feel comfortable around and enjoy being around.
Superstition upsets me like nothing else. We live in the 21st century for fuck's sake, not the dark ages.
My humor is dark, sarcastic, witty, and totally fucked up. Years of playing online games has given me a love for that kind of humor that most people don't have. You run into some weird shit on the internet. George Carlin is one of my intellectual idols, so if you like the things he had to say, we will get along.
I like cats, and have two right now. They're very cute and sweet :). Dogs are fine, and it may have been growing up with a dog that hated me, but I prefer cats.
I'm very interested in psychology, and as such I like psychological thrillers. My favorite movies are almost all psych thrillers. Books, movies, and shows that have real character development and in-depth looks at psychology are fascinating to me. I don't like people all that much, but learning how they work is very interesting; it could lead me to potentially understand why most of them are morons :P.
I'm more attracted to women intellectually than physically, so if you have emptiness between the ears, please do not bother to respond. A beautiful, witty, smart woman is quite difficult to find.
I want someone who can simultaneously be my best friend and love of my life. Someone who shares a lot of my likes, but can also introduce me to new things that I may not have otherwise known about, and in turn is willing to let me do the same for her. I want a woman who is always expanding her world and learning, while having fun and being a bit silly. I need a girl who appreciates affection, and is able to be passionate, understanding, and experimental sexually.
I suppose that's enough for right now, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! ^_^
PS: I always look god awful in pictures.
I suppose I always look like that ALL the time, but that's beside the point :P.
