My self-summary
Where to start... well, I'm an IT Professional in the Financial
Services Industry. As the job has grown, so have I and I love the
job. I earned my BA (yes, Arts) in Computer Science from Grand
Valley State University in 2003.

I'm a pretty mellow guy, most of my friends would probably
describe me as being sensitive, honest, and loving. I have a
strong sense of principle which sometimes gets me in trouble... I
tend to do the "right" thing even when there may be a more
"practical" alternative.

I tend to be rather introverted, and I have a lot of "nerdy"
interests and hobbies. I'm sociable enough but sometimes I need
a nudge - being easy going I always find some way to enjoy
myself wherever I am.

I don't really watch any TV - the TV that I do watch is streamed or
downloaded and consumed slowly. I love playing video games
and I read quite a bit, though a lot of that has been audiobook of
late.

That being said, I'm a bit of a foodie and love trying new edibles,
most of my "travel" ideas are cuisine motivated. Admittedly I'm a
bit travel shy since my trip to Russia - my "Street Smarts" are not
so smart. :( I love going to the Symphony, I go at least a few
times a year - our Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra always has
a good program. (P.S. I hate parking downtown, if you're a good
city driver please mention it.)

I have 7 siblings, of which I am the oldest. Before you raise an
eyebrow you should know that only 1 is biologically related to me.
This may be a good conversation piece so do ask me about if you
like.

I have a goofy streak... I always say its the fruits and nuts in the
world that make it a delicious place to live.
I am "awake"... this is a concept I've come up with myself, so its
hard to explain. If you've ever gone people watching, and run into
another people watcher, you probably have a good idea what I
mean here. This may be a good conversation piece - ask me about
if you like.

So, now that I've sold you on me... (right?... right.)
Some qualities I'm looking for in a partner include:
* Enjoys snuggling/cuddling, is affectionate/loving
* Has a relaxed personality, someone who can match me in
compassion, kindness, and honesty. Is genuine.
* Interested in maybe having children someday, looking for
someone who knows the difference between being a "daddy" and
a "father."
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to move into the next phase... I'm done with school, I've
established my career and have been in my industry over a
decade, I have hobbies and friends...

But alas, I am still without a partner to share my life with.
I’m really good at
Looking through other peoples eyes... taking their point of view.
Being WAY more verbose then I need to be in every situation.

I'm sure you'll notice as you view my profile. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
My simple taste in wardrobe/style (plain) probably... or my pattern
of speech when I'm trying to be thoughtful.

You should message me if
You're kinda nerdy and/or like nerdy guys. You're looking for
someone who holds *integrity* and *honesty* as high ideals.

You're laid back, sorta liberal, comfortable in your skin, and take
life seriously... just not too seriously.
