My self-summary
Hi.

My name is Ben.
I live in La Selva Beach, a small community about 5 minutes from Watsonville.

I have lived in San Jose most of my life. I spent a couple years in Sonora, a brief stay in the Army, back to San Jose and now La Selva Beach. I really like the area, but almost all of my friends have moved out of the area which kind of sucks.

As my user name implies, I am a scuba diver.
I absolutely love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, backpacking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing and so on. It's been a while, but I also enjoy horseback riding. I did a horse whispering internship some years ago.

I am strongly atheist and I am a gender egalitarian/humanist. That means that I support both men's and women's rights. It also means I get in a lot of arguments with feminists who are trying to shut down any discussion of men's issues. I am looking for someone who supports men's and women's rights, full stop.

I love animals, but due to my fur and feather allergies I prefer reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. I have a pretty big reptile collection, including several hots.

I am full of creativity, can write fairly well (though I've been told my dialogue needs some work), am a critical thinker and a problem solver.
What I’m doing with my life
For the last two years I have been working on starting a small business that I hope to grow into something bigger. The short version is building custom terrariums and terrarium interior design. It is just taking me longer than I would have liked to make it profitable. It is fun to do but if I were to charge for my time the tanks would end up more expensive than anyone around here would be willing to pay. My hope is that I can get to the point of doing larger projects and take on more upscale clients such as display tanks for office lobbies and so forth. For a better idea of what I mean, google image search paludarium.
In the mean time, I am trying to get a job as a security guard so I have a bit more to put into my business. I am also studying for the EMT national registration exam, but I don't think I'm going to be ready to take that for quite a while. Santa Cruz county doesn't hire EMTs anyways, they run double paramedic rigs.
I’m really good at
Knowing random and primarily useless information.
Being somewhat socially awkward.
Spotting reptiles.
Driving mountain roads faster than most people would be comfortable with.
Being creative.
Guessing on tests.
Coming up with analogies that help people understand something they otherwise would have struggled with.
The first things people usually notice about me
It is usually my red beard which is an actual red/auburn while my regular hair is more of a light brown, so some people ask if I dye it, which I do not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The God Delusion, the Halo series, the Star Wars extended universe books, The myth of male power, The War on Boys, several cook books (mainly focusing on the grill), a whole stack of reptile and amphibian books.
Movies: Serenity, Step Brothers, The Hangover 2, Land of the Lost, Indiana Jones, Star Wars and so on..

Shows: Firefly, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, South Park, Bones, Dexter, The Walking Dead, Warehouse 13, Castle, Hell on Wheels and many, many more. I highly value a strong plot, good acting and a good title sequence :P

Music: I have a mixed taste in music. I like some of the mainstream stuff, but I also like colonial, folk, traditional, some classical, some soundtrack and some comedy.

Food: There are a lot of different types of food I enjoy. Pizza, Sushi, Seafood, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mediterranean and so on. I really enjoy salads and wild game.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, pets, creativity, flip-flops and hiking boots, Internet, logic and context.
I can do without limits to six things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How awesome it would be if someone started cloning miniature dinosaurs and they got into the pet trade.
Plans for the zombie apocalypse.
Crazy business ideas.
Video game and movie ideas.
Hair brain inventions.
Gender and social issues.
Gun rights.
Religion and cross cultural issues.
Government corruption and government lunacy.
How a lot of societies problems have many feeder problems, making them all incredibly difficult to actually fix.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually Netflix and relaxing at my computer.
What I would prefer though, would be having friends over for a BBQ, a beach bonfire, camping or going on a cross country trip..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a bit of a geek and would like to get a collection of costumes to go to Renaissance fairs and Star Wars conventions with. I already have a set of Stormtrooper armor, but it needs some fixing up and I haven't used it since high school.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–27
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
-You are Atheist/agnostic.
-Are supportive of gender equality for both men and women.
-Do not get offended by political incorrectness or crude humor.
-You like reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fish.
-Know what I meant by keeping hots and don't have a problem with it.
-You like the outdoors (camping, hiking, adventure in general..)
-Like to travel.
-Have a question.
-Think we might make a good match.
-Want to chat.

As a side note, I am looking for someone who is a real progressive. By that I mean the type of progressive who is actually progressive, not regressive as so many of the liberals who take it to the point of libtardation tend to be.
Two examples: People who are rabidly anti gun because they think taking guns away will stop people from killing each other (rather than trying to do something that would actually make a difference, you know, like fixing the mental health system or addressing the cultural attitudes that lead people to want to go out and kill each other or themselves in the first place..) and people who support one sided gender politics.
