My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Yo! My name's Jared. I like music, and games, and books. I have a lot of creative ventures, and I get on well with creative people. I keep an open mind, though I'm prone to getting lost inside it.

Dating's great, but honestly, I'm not very emotionally available lately. Really, I just want to meet people to have drinks with, go to concerts, play video games, and discuss philosophy. If you can make it through all that and still want to date me, maybe you can talk me into it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in that slightly ambiguous phase in life after you're done school and are suddenly forced to realize your destiny. So basically I'm working an entry-level job in my field, taking freelance contracts in my free time, and dreaming big. I do computer stuff and web design. If you need a pretty website, I can make you one.

I play a lot of music - I play drums primarily, but I also play guitar and even sing on occasion. I've been in a bunch of bands, played in a load of shows, and recorded and produced a lot of original music. I also dabble in all kinds of other creative ventures, including writing, photography, and film.

But mostly I play video games. I'm a DotA fiend foremost, though I play a fair amount of other stuff, mostly RPGs and beat 'em ups. And music games, naturally!

Here's a bunch of guitar covers:

Or you can listen to some of my original music, if you like:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drum solos, cleaning house in poker, fixing your computer, racing cars, imagining big.

I always win at board games. My friends like to team up on me to keep me in check.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say nice things about my voice, and supposedly my jawline and eyebrows are pretty distinctive.

I hear a lot about how lanky and young-looking I am, too. Yeah, I know, I'm a living anime protagonist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Night. Music. Technology. Language. Vision. Freedom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Existence as order and chaos, artificial intelligence, superorganisms and superconsciousness, matter evolution, how the universe is a god putting itself back together in slow motion, behavior, melodies and rhythms, art, the psychology of change, systems of creation, characters I'd like to write about, how to extend my deadlines, the path the world is walking and what it'll be like in the future, morality, information existing as an abstract entity overlaying humanity, freedom, mechanical comprehension of semantics and connotation.

Y'know... stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Gallivanting, no doubt!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One time, I had sex in a shower stall in residence. The bathrooms were communal for each floor - this was in the women's. Post-coitus, we clean up and get ready to evacuate the scene of the crime. But just as I turn off the water, two girls come in together wrapped in towels. I hush up and let the one who actually belongs in the bathroom do the talking.

But there's only two shower stalls. And so, I realize: I cannot exit this bathroom unseen.

So with a fresh nothing-to-lose attitude, I casually walked out of the stall and gave a salutatory "'sup?", to which they responded by making really loud screeching noises and sprinting out of the bathroom like a bad sitcom. Luckily, they took it in good humor, but I didn't hear the end of it from my floormates for a while.

That was an arbitrary example, but the moral of the story is that I'm mostly an open book.

As long as we're on the subject, I guess I should talk a little about "looking for: casual sex" (admit it, you totally noticed):

Sex is not something I actively seek or require for fulfillment. I take it as it comes, and I let it unfold at a natural pace. I'm open to no-strings when it feels right, with a person I'm comfortable with. I'm a bit of a flirt by nature, but don't let that fool you - I'm not easy.

I also have a non-platonic crush on Neil Patrick Harris.

Okay, that's enough. Need to leave some mystery.
