Not seeking romance at this time, only friendship.
I'm rather interested in meeting someone who doesn't love to laugh. I've seen an inordinate number of profiles on here that claim their owners love to laugh, and as I've never met anyone who doesn't, I'm wondering how this attribute sets them apart from anyone else. Similarly, I'd like to meet someone who dislikes having fun.
Please note that as I am not trying to exclude the overwhelming majority of the population, I'm also interested in meeting people who do, in fact, like to laugh and have fun. I'm just very curious about these alleged people who don't.
Good conversation is pretty much always a higher priority for me than romance is, and as I am currently enjoying the best relationship I've ever had, I have absolutely no reason whatsoever to seek romance elsewhere. (Incidentally, she insists that she isn't secretly my android girlfriend from the future, but I'm not entirely convinced that future-me didn't program her to lie about that.)
Software design and development
Writing (novels, poetry)
Achieving a lower score in bowling than anyone else in the group (This one I'm not so much interested in accomplishing any better; getting worse at getting the lowest score would be perfectly acceptable!)
Lately, it seems people have been noticing that my books are all available on Kindle. That makes me happy. :)
Movies: Avengers (and most any superhero movie), Lord of the Rings, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Pirates of the Caribbean, Meet Me in St. Louis, X-Men (all), Maleficent, and too many more to list! Honestly, I like most anything with a compelling story, and I tend to care more about said story than I do about which actors are in it.
TV Shows: Doctor Who, BBC's Sherlock, Bones, The Big Bang Theory, Castle, Firefly, Grimm, How I Met Your Mother, Leverage, The IT Crowd, and a few more. Recently, I've been enjoying Arrow, The Flash, Forever, and Gotham.
Music: Mozart, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Evanescence, Jonathan Coulton, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, far too many more to list.
Food: Pizza, enchiladas, pizza, lasagna, pizza, spaghetti, pizza, chicken strips, pizza, celery, pizza, raw carrots, pizza, blueberries, pizza, cantelope... did I mention pizza?

I'm amused by the apparently large number of women on here who are looking for a man who likes to work out. While I do work out for health reasons, I don't believe I'm ever going to actually like it. I'm sorry if that's a deal breaker. As a non masochist, I'm just not likely to ever find pain enjoyable, but I wish you all well in your endeavor to find a man who does!
Lately, I've been thinking a little bit about the oddly large number of profiles on here where women claim that the best way to describe themselves is "I'm just me" or some variant thereof. I'm curious as to whether or not they've met people who were actually someone other than who they were, short of multiple-personality disorder. In the event that these women are simply attracted to tautologies, though, I'll state that we'll meet if we meet.
Also, since it's apparently important to so many people on here, I can distinguish spellings and meanings between homophones.
- Able to communicate effectively
- Interested in actual interaction
Ideal candidates will fail to meet the following criteria:
- Prone to manipulative or passive-aggressive behavior
- In possession of feline companion
- Repulsed by intelligence and/or geekiness
- Conventional consumption of tobacco
I respond to all messages I receive, even the ones barely worthy of the name. If all you say is "Hi" though, you'll probably only get a "Hello" in response.
Yes, I've listed "new friends" as the only thing I'm looking for; contrary to some apparently-popular notion on here, I meant it literally. While I am currently uninterested in messages driven by the possibility of romance, I welcome conversation with neither the desire for nor the intention of anything more than friendship.
Oh yes, and in case you didn't read my summary, I am allergic to cats. If that is a problem, I'm sorry, but allergy meds really don't help.
