My self-summary
Hi I'm Matt, I am a pretty strange cookie, but if you give me a chance I might just be what you are looking for.

I like to knit in coffee shops, And sing walking in the street. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy and blog about it. I teach kids to sing, and perform with my super hero crime fighting/singing group slaphappy (comedic acappella). It will make me sad if I can't make you laugh, and I will absolutely attempt to sweep you off your feet.

I like to dance, especially tango, and play soccer and frisbee. I'd really like to become more active and get back into hiking and playing more sports. I have a strong passion for telling really bad jokes, and I really like reading bedtime stories.

I do currently live on South Whidbey Island, which is about 30 minutes and a fifteen minutes ferry from downtown Seattle. I do not mind driving into the city at all, and am saving to move into the city in a few months, so don't let that dissuade you.
What I’m doing with my life
I would like to be able to tell you I spend my time taming dragons, but that wouldn't be true. I work at a bookstore, teach voice lessons to middle schoolers, and music direct at the whidbey children's theater. It's not glamorous, but it allows me to do the things I want to do. Like write my blog, or my terrible yet a little bit cute novel.

I graduated WWU with a Bachelor of Arts, and am the Composer in residence for the Island Shakespeare Festival. While I currently would call what I do being a professional musician and making do, I am realizing that relying on my music for money is ruining it for me. So I'm currently working on a career change, and have been teaching myself programming in most of my free time. I want to be able to enjoy every second of my art, and unfortunately that means I am going to need a day job.

My current fascination is learning about human behavior, mostly focusing on habits and automatic emotional response. I just find it really neat that there are so many things we do without intention. I don't think I want to go to school for psychology, but it's definitely something I've been discussing a lot lately.
I’m really good at
Making my students comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Laughing to the point right before I pee myself and then controlling it. Knitting very evenly. Solving problems. And growing a really great looking beard.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am very direct and very honest, that I have very expressive eyebrows, that I'm absolutely ridiculous, and I don't often stop singing, whether it's inside my head or out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I really like sea food, and pepperoni, and waffles. I really like waffles. As in: There is everything, and then above that is waffles.

Music: I don't listen to a lot of Classical right now, but I am rather fond of it. Anything with broad sweeping melodies really. I'm really into Ben Folds, Goat Rodeo, Arora, and The Shins.
seriously though, I listen to a lot of acappella music. My friends are usually very impressed when the six disc changer in my car has a non-acappella album.

Shows: I haven't had a lot of time for tv; but my favorite shows include: New Girl, The Newsroom, Psych, The League, and Smash.

Movies: My favorite movies are Pitch Perfect, Tangled, and Secondhand Lions. I really like Romantic Comedies, Ancient Chinese War movies, and really anything that isn't scary or overly gory that I can cuddle with you and watch.

Books: I read nearly constantly, as in usually a book a week.
My main genre is sci-fi fantasy, but I recently have been reading nonfiction mostly about habits and psychology as I mentioned above. My favorite authors are: William Gibson, Patrick Rothfuss, Michael J. Sullivan, and Scott Lynch.

My newest favorites are:
The City & The City
Golem And The Ginni
The Power Of Habit
The six things I could never do without
1. Making people smile 2. Mouth drumming 3. Belief in Unicorns 4. The Internetz 5. Paper Books 6. Really really bad jokes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more tactful.
How to accept myself as well as others, and deal how to deal with my emotions in a productive way.
How create more productive habits.
What program could I teach to benefit the youth in my community.
Practicing piano.

Most of those things are now second to the World Cup.
On a typical Friday night I am
Warming up kids for our musical performance that night, then going to the bar to relax and get a drink. Also probably wishing I was going to sing some Karaoke, you can't help but swoon when you hear me singing Vanessa Carlton. When I fail to make plans I'm usually reading in bed or playing my mandolin
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once told a joke with carrots in my ears in public on a first date.

Sometimes I watch The Lion King and cry when Mufasa dies.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
I'm looking for something with intention to head towards a serious relationship. I am very silly, and am always up for meeting and seeing what our interaction is like; but I've been told I am a little bit intense.

If you are not a fan of romance, you might want to find someone else. I will probably take you on obnoxiously cute dates, make you sweet gifts with my hands, and write you music pretending I belong in Big Fish. Just warning you, I'm awesome.

Thank you for taking the time to read to the bottom. This whole trying to find someone compatible, getting the timing right, and dealing with your own life thing is nonsense. I wish you luck if I'm not your style.
