My self-summary
I need someone weird, to be weird with. My brain is constantly moving at 10,000 miles per hour in a million directions at once. I'm outgoing, wavering betwixt introvert and extrovert, and I need someone who can keep up with me.

I'm on a dating site looking specifically for romance. I know, crazy huh? But seriously, I have enough friends. I would say I have too many friends, but that's just because I surround myself with quality people that I just can't get rid of because they're so awesome. Now I'm looking for that special partner that can join me on my escapades.

I love city adventures; food, concerts (especially bands I'm friends with), theatre, dive bars, dancing, or just wandering around. I find it uncomfortably odd the Seattle trend of standing still at concerts. I'm often one of the only ones dancing. C'mon people, move your feet.

I'm not particularly outdoorsy these days, though I'm certainly not against it. And I will never pass up the chance to do something new, even if it's just to say I did it (or at the very least, I can't say I never tried). Care to test that theory?
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent over a decade in game development, but I'm not where I want to be, so I'm switching careers. It's an exciting time for me, as I feel like I can do anything I want right now. The plan now is to find a stable career path, with lots of room to grow. It doesn't even need to be exciting. (I'd love to be one of those lucky sorts who says they've been with the same dull job for five years.) Meanwhile I plan to use what I learned this past decade to make my own games. Who knows where this will lead?

In my off-time, I'm a costume nerd, and can regularly be found at various conventions with other superheroes and fantasy and anime characters. Summer is a time for Renaissance faires for me. I'm involved with a stunt/music/black powder pirate group that tours various venues in the Northwest. I'm not SCA. That's a little too weird for even me. Nothing against it, though. Power to you if that's your thing!

I have a diverse group of random friends that mean the world to me. We're family, and every day I'm thankful we have each other. I live a pretty damn busy life with great friends and family, but there's definitely room for one more in it.
I’m really good at
I don't know about "good at", but here's what I enjoy: guitar, sing, stage combat, game design, fencing, ballroom dance. Also D&D. (I include "good at D&D" because my future partner would have to respect that this is something worth being good at.)

This one time, I was explaining my interests to someone, and I realized I was accidentally becoming this weird Renaissance Man who is all "Yeah I play music and study fencing and art and also sing and know karate but I can't wait to learn sailing and get back to my drum kit someday." Either I'm really awesome, or I just can't make up my mind. Or both. I'm pretty sure Leonardo da Vinci knew karate, so I'm in good company.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told confidence, humor, social grace; I'm apparently the kind of guy who's all "This is who I am, here and now." Really? Man, I feel like Flynn in the first Tron movie when he says "You just keep doing what it looks like you're supposed to be doing, no matter how crazy it seems."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Harry Potter, Sherlock, wine, Seattle and Oregon beer, sushi, Thai, Scott Pilgrim, Doctor Who, superhero movies and TV (Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and can't wait for Season 2 of Peggy Carter), Game of Thrones (the TV series, haven't read the books yet), Final Fantasy, Ultima, Fallout. (I threw some video game stuff in there too.)
The six things I could never do without
Air, food, water, shelter, sleep, and social contact.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends, whether it's a gig or a play, or a few drinks or a game night, or out dancing, or a random adventure. Honestly I love Friday night shenanigans. There's something epic about attacking a weekend as soon as I get off work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not necessarily private, but an interesting tidbit, I don't ask hypothetical questions, and I often don't get it when I hear them.
You should message me if
If you want to share in a most excellent adventure.

I want to be upfront about this: I don't have a lot of relationship experience. I've dated, but nothing really resembling a serious relationship. I'm guessing there may be some likewise-inexperienced potential partners out there; or at least someone understanding enough as I learn the subtle intricacies of partnering. I'm not alone, am I?

That doesn't mean I'm just looking for a "learning experience" either. And definitely not a one-night stand. Let's be partners in this, eh?

I also don't like crushes. I'm in my 40's. Crushes are for kids. Let's get to know each other as people, and not put each other on pedestals.

Tell me what makes you geeky. It doesn't have to be space ships and faeries and superheroes or whatever. Sports, shoes, cars, vegetables, anything you're passionate and could talk for hours about.
