So without further adieu! - Hi there, I'm Daniel. =) I'm looking for a partner in crime. A young lady with a smile, a zest for life, and an affinity for bad puns. I enjoy a companion who is confident in herself. Eager and able to hold a conversation. Someone who values intelligence, kindness, and laughing at terribly inappropriate things. I also use this stupid thing to make friends. Because, you know...online dating is lame and stuff. Yeah....
To be frank, I am somewhat of a nerd! I defy numerous stereotypes, and am difficult for others to 'place' just by seeing me. I find it fun! :D But my personal interests tend to dabble on the sides of, nature, the universe, science, gaming, and long walks to no where before they step into The Jersey Shore, Kardashians, and whatever the hell else you silly kids are into these days. :P Seriously, as far as I'm concerned..."Kardashians" are just a thing that sound similar to the bad guys in Star Trek.
I am a gamer. I'm accustomed to dating both people who play games, and those who don't. I'm not the type to ignore my partner on a Friday evening because I'd rather go to a raid, or play call of duty. So long as you're not the type to get upset when I won't lay around on the couch all day with you watching Jersey Shore, (I would prefer death.) we might just get along.
While I do have my geeky interests, they do not entirely define who I am. I feel this is worthy of note as some individuals are highly defined by their entertainment choices. When some hear 'video games' they imagine a full grown college neckbeard who yells 'Bro!' and neglects their hygiene. This would be a stereotype, my friend! However, I do not fit into this stereotype. I, am me. :) I am more shaped by science, compassion, knowledge, saying bad words, and friendship, than by what I like to watch and play. Along with that, I can get into just about anything. I enjoy boating, skiing, and rock climbing just as much as I enjoy nerding out on the couch. I will admit, if you're not totally lame, I may very well spend hours talking your ear off about star formation, why Pluto is now classified as a Dwarf Planet, random MMOs, and telling my many silly stories. It's a good thing! (Martha Stewart?)
Friends describe me as ridiculous, overly kind, and not shy in any sense of the word. Strangers describe me as 'hard to forget', whether that is good or bad...I'm not quite sure. I can often talk about anything, with anyone, and adore genuine conversation. Which is unfortunately difficult to find in these parts. :/
This all sounds a tad too serious. So I am going to take a moment to say 'boobies' before I continue. Thank you.
As for my career. I work in simulation, while working towards a life in science. I am rather ambitious, and chase my success fervently. I've found much, yet continue to work towards my life's goals. While being driven, I still retain my nerdy, friendly, fun personality. Characteristics I find it difficult to locate in a partner.
Humor is a big part of who I am. My sense of humor ranges from the terribly cheesy and lighthearted, to the incredibly inappropriate, yet very necessary type humor. You know, horrible jokes! Inappropriate remarks! Artful deployment of foul language! It's fun. I prefer laughter, over scowling. I've yet to date someone where we didn't just crack each other up. Humor chemistry is quite important to me. By this I mean - If you have a stick up your ass, I'll probably tug at it.
