My self-summary
Must update my profile in March 2014: I typed the stuff below 2 or 3 years ago at this point and is somewhat out of date, sorta:

Hey,

How's it going? That's a little generic question I'll start off with... haha. As for me, it's going ok... hey, I can't complain, right? Or can I? :) In any case, I guess I should just start my self-summary off by saying that it can really be quite hard to do so. I'm a fairly complicated and complex person in my mind, though I appear simple, quiet and carefree. I think the best way too approach is to say that my philosophy in life is to always learn and be curious about everything that's going on around you, but at the same time be able to discard all your big ideas, laugh at yourself and life, and not take anything too seriously. With that said, sometimes I have a conflict in my mind on how to balance out my carefee/easygoing side with my want to explore and debate the challenging issues going on around us. I think I'm happiest when I'm in neutral mode though... just kinda observing the outside world and getting lost in my own head. So yeah, I love to daydream and think of, well, any number of things. haha.

I'm often very lighthearted and just looking to have a few laughs or have interesting conversation, but if you get to know me on a deeper level you'll see there is a lot of stuff I care about. You'll get to know that I'm a total music junkie/geek or whatever you call it. No matter what there is always a song or a whole album by a band playing in my head and it's what makes me most happy probably. I'm a nut when it comes to music trivia, history and just listening too and talking about it in general. Me and my friend are on the verge of recording some insanely crazy musical things too.

In other areas... I'm huge into reading (mostly non-fiction), I like a good balance of being a homebody (watching t.v., watching movies, listening to music, and board games) and enjoying the outdoors (camping, kayacking, exploring). I'm very introverted, but I'm really into the social sciences... and always curious about what others do and think. I'm also an atheist and very into evolutionary anthropology.... I'm trying to gain more knowledge in this area... my degree is in Geography so it partially stems from that probably. I can't fail to mention that I love maps too! I used to draw fake maps as a kid all the time, creating my own towns and villages on posterboards.

I guess you could also say that I don't really care for parties or conversating with large groups of people, but I'm interested in what they are about or think.. and so forth. I have my own unique and strange sense of humor that I let out if I'm comfortable around you too. I have a guard up sometimes, but if we click my humor can become borderline retarded. However, in contrast to my nonsensical humorous side I'm a rational thinker (a naturalist that is for scientific reasoning to lead the way) and I try to think more with my brain rather than my heart when it comes to serious issues where you need logic to solve it. Even so, I'm a bit of a humanist and consider how everyone is feeling in a situation too...

Now that I think about it.... if you are over an 80% match with me that's awesome! 60-80% match, that may be good, below 60%.... probably won't work out, but I guess you never know!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm at an interesting crossroads in my life where I'm not in the field that I graduated with, but I'm pretty happy nonetheless. I used to be a drafter/mapper at an engineering firm, but now I'm working with my parents at their business around the corner from me.. totally different than what my major is. I'm looking at interesting options in the future though like going back to school and deciding if I want to change careers or stick with where I'm at now. I really love any of the social sciences like history, geography, psychology, etc.... and anything dealing with evolution/anthropology. I would like to pursue more education and gain as much knowledge as I can about any career path I choose in the future though.
I’m really good at
What am I really good at? Well, I'm a good listener... which I know is at least one thing that girls like, lol. Basically though, I'm a wealth of knowledge when it comes to music trivia and/or history, and I have good spatial/visual skills (as weird as that may sound)... I'm good at knowing where I'm at and can pretty much navigate anywhere, though I kind of like to get lost anyway - I'm always up for an adventure when I have time. There are a lot of things I'm not good at, but I won't get into that, haha. Nah seriously though, I have a lot of interests... it's just sometimes hard to know which interest to focus on instead of procrastinating and not doing anything. I'm good at writing crazy songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm easy to talk too, though a bit cautious and shy ... also that I look kinda young for my age... not sure what else though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mostly non-fiction - mainly books about social and
environmental issues, psychology, evolution/religion, and music. I read a lot of Magazines like Mojo Music mag, Scientific American and Mind, The Humanist, Skeptic and a few
others. I would like to read some Biographies and autobiographies
as well (about bands, musicians, scientists, philosophers and
anyone else of interest). As for fiction... well I used to read a
lot of that as a kid, but I'm interested in any kind of story about
human struggle, or something that could be true in reality. I liked Roald Dahl as a kid (and still do). I'm always open for more suggestions too!

Movies: Since I started my first job out of college in 2004 I've been kinda lame with movies.. I'd like to get back into watching a lot more. My favorites include: Forrest Gump, Catch me if you can, Blood Diamond, Napolean Dynamite, What about Bob?, The Green Mile, The Wedding Singer, Something about Mary, etc. I'm a huge ass fan of documentaries too! Sicko, Supersize Me, What Happened to the Electric Car?... and a host of other ones I have seen or have yet to see.

As far as television, I pretty much like anything on the history, investigation discovery or discovery
health channels. Show's about people with weird medical defects, human struggles, crime/murder, how stuff is made, etc. I like Seinfeld, south park, breaking bad, House, big bang theory, it's always sunny in philadelphia, curb your enthusiasm, beavis and butthead, pawn stars, axmen, modern marvels, and a host of other shows if I do sit on that couch...

Music: Too much to count... here's a list of about 100 bands I'm
into - The Beatles, The Kinks, Genesis, Yes, The Who, Rush, Wilco, The Beachboys, The Byrds, The Police, The Talking Heads, Soft Machine, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, The Clash, The Buzzcocks Sublime, The Moody Blues, Ben Folds, R.E.M., The Replacements, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, CCR, The Band, Bob Dylan, Steely Dan, The Move, Electric Light Orchestra, The Zombies, Simon and Garfunkel, The Mama's & the Papa's, The Hollies, Van Der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, Stone Temple Pilots, The Ramones, Deep Purple, Roy Wood, The Left Banke, Ian Dury, The Pixies, Sparks, Stevie Wonder, Frank Zappa, The Turtles, Vampire Weekend, System of a Down, Elton John, Lou Reed, Emerson,Lake & Palmer, Franz Ferdinand, Fleetwood Mac, Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the stone age, AC/DC, Neil Young, The Eels, Super Furry Animals, Supertramp, Queen, , The Monkees, Johnny Cash, Ten Years After, Beck, The Cars, Metallica, Alice In Chains, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Santana, Donovan, Dr. Dog, Peter Gabriel, and
many more...

Food: Italian and Chinese are my favorites to go out for. I'm
pretty simple though and kinda picky, lol.
The six things I could never do without
1. Music
2. Curiosity and knowledge
3. Books and Magazines
4. various technology gadgets
5. free thought
6. laughter and being a dork, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, what it holds for me... what's going to happen. I'm always thinking about self-improvement and what the future holds.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies, I may stay home and do something here or go out with some friends... you just never know
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Get to know me and I can tell you more...
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–36
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
1. You are excited at the possibility of meeting someone and maybe going out... hopefully have some good laughs and interesting conversation.

2. You are liberal, maybe an athiest (you don't have to be one of course... but I know we wouldn't make a good match if you are a pretty religious person), silly, free-spirited, willing to go out or stay in sometimes, into music, reading, science, etc. or something along those lines... pretty much some or all of those qualities are cool, and maybe some other ones.

3. New friends are cool too, but it would be great to find someone that I click with and see if it turns into something more.... so anyone interested that would want to hang out and see what happens with no expectations would be great.
