My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not a fan of how long my profile is these days. But in all honesty...I just don't have time to play the dark, brooding, and mysterious male through this online dating voodoo. I maintain a full time professional career, a enthralling social life, and am busy at work on my second degree. I'm busy! Your experience here will be an upfront one. Buckle up! =D

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 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching soldiers how to turn a wrench. (Seriously)

Attending USF as a geology student.

Planning escape routes from my office in the case of a zombie invasion.

Planning a trip to Europe.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Being a goober.
- Hmmm, oh! I can juggle!
- Wearing suspenders for no good reason.
- Lame ass jokes!
Give this one a shot. What do you call a fish with no eyes?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The hair. My concave ass. My joyous, and goofy personality. My occasionally hilarious old man grumpiness.

People keep telling me that I remind them of Louis CK. Which is fine. But if I ever look like that poor bastard...I am going to off myself with a shotgun. He would understand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Everyone is nerdy in their own way. There are beer nerds, car nerds, book nerds, movie nerds, politics nerds. Everyone has something they enjoy. Do we ALL have to watch reality tv, and listen to Bieber? That would be a rather boring world indeed.

Music - I'm not much of a music snob. My tastes vary, and really do very little to reflect my personality, as some people tend to think musical tastes do / should. I have no idea. But, to appease those who like lists!
- Rise Against, Shoji Meguro, Autopilot Off, Shinedown, Muse, Foo Fighters, Nobuo Uematsu, Pendelum, Rolling Stones, System of a Down, Jimmy Eat World, Incubus, 30 Seconds to Mars, In Flames, Kings of Leon, Disturbed, Stone Sour, 10 Years, AC/DC, Zeppelin, Floyd, The Who, Ozzy, All That Remains. Some of the Beatles. And on, and on.

Movies- Star Wars, Army of Darkness, Snatch, Forrest Gump! Batman, Children of Men, Pulp Fiction, Spirited Away, Full Metal Jacket, The Fountain, Ghostbusters, Harry and the Hendersons, Back to the Future. I also really enjoy a good bit of science fiction. I'm easy to entertain.

Food: I will eat anything. I love trying food. I also have a really hard time dating picky eaters. I realize there are a lot of vegetarians / vegans out there, and that is entirely cool. Vegetables are good. But if I take you to a 5 star restaurant and you're the type who always just orders chicken fingers off the kids menu....that's rather disappointing. Eat food with me! :P

TV: Star Trek: TNG, The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, Science Channel, National Geographic, History, Discovery. Anthony Bourdain, Futurama, Stargate, Family Guy, Everybody Loves Raymond, Home Improvement, Venture Brothers, FMA, Dirty Jobs. Again, I do most of this watching on my own. I'll not force you to watch my terrible sitcoms. :P

Books: Cosmos. A Candle in the dark. A Pale Blue Dot. I need to read more stories.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

(Dear god, that was lame.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The many career and life goals ahead of me. I have places to go!

My next big adventure.

How the presentation of scientific idea's to another person can have an affect on their feelings towards it. How most information a person absorbs is from a bias, ignorant, and uninformed source. Driving up the rate of misconception and unnecessary skepticism. While undermining the need for real skepticism of myth and pseudoscience. ~ Too much? ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not afraid to tie a beach towel cape around my neck, and pretend I am awesome.

I call it pop, not soda. That's not even private, it's damned correct. You weird people.

I don't care if I'm 29 years old, I enjoy, and still purchase juice boxes. I will one day be an 80 year old man waving my fists in the air screaming, "Olga! Who drank all my damned capri sun?!"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a Gym Leader. :D (People, I don't mean a real gym. Stop hitting on me, buff chicks.)
You like boating!
You would like to nerd out about random awesome things.
You like to go on grand random strolls to no where.
You feel that pajama's + a movie is an entirely reasonable way to spend a lazy day.
You enjoy hearing the same stupid story about how I said "Jon, you're fucked." and sent my cousin to the hospital when I was 3.

I don't like the whole "Don't message me if you-" list, but I get a lot of messages from people who I don't quite match up with. So I'll just throw a little bit of a disclaimer down here. I don't date racists, bigots, or fanatics. I'm not religious at all. Let me repeat that. I feel any and all notion of a deity is utter hogwash. I don't do drugs. And in general, I lack the need for hate, anger, and drama in my life. If you subscribe to any of the above, we will probably not be a good match.

Don't be afraid to say hello! ^_^
