My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost, I am in a SERIOUS, COMMITTED, MONOGAMOUS relationship. I'm never on OkCupid, because I'm not looking, not interested, and not available. However, if you are some kind of masochist and want to read about someone who is completely unavailable, go for it. Just don't think that stalking my profile or sending me love letters/poetry/miscellaneous propositions is going to get you anywhere.

I am not jaded or cynical, and fall in love with simple things that make me smile for not always simple reasons. I like to think that I cultivate an attitude of child-like wonder, but a good friend referred to this quality as "innocence," and I guess that works in a pinch.

If someone asks me where a thing is, and I do not immediately know the answer, I will claim to have eaten it. This answer applies equally to keys, best friends, articles of clothing, cars, and furniture. I do a lot of strange things to entertain myself and those around me, and because I'm generally a smart ass.

I can be rather arrogant and self-centered, which is a serious problem when I let it get out of hand. Working on that, but aren't we all works in progress?

I'm a veteran. I spent about six years in the Navy, and they were very instructive years. For example, I deeply dislike people who can't follow basic instructions, and I am wholly incapable of coping with whining from adults who ought to know better.

I am enthusiastic, sincere, and curious
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As previously mentioned, I'm in a monogamous relationship, and have been for the last four years.
I'm a full time college student, working on a Bachelor's in Computer and Electrical Engineering Technology with a minor in Engineering Management. If I can finish the BSET program quickly enough, I'm going to continue and get a Master's in Computer and Electrical Engineering.
I also have a part time job on campus.
I have no time, for anything, ever.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, wasting time online, cooking and baking, confusing people, snarling when something frustrates me... that last one's not really a good thing, is it?

Oh, once upon a time I was a competitive martial artist. I add this only because, having spent 11 years studying various styles, I ended up a very disciplined person. It is also the major reason why I don't appreciate condescension. And it means I will almost never need someone to come save me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm short and curvy. If they're especially observant, that I'm confident. I've noticed that if you carry yourself like you're ten feet tall, people will believe it. Despite my actual height, people commonly think I'm about four inches taller.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books: Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land (and many others), Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash (and pretty much everything else he ever wrote), Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series... Lots of others. I like thought-provoking, well-written fiction. I'll read almost anything, but prefer science fiction.

Favorite movies: I don't get out much... all time favorite movie has got to be the Princess Bride, with the Last Unicorn coming in somewhere in the top five. I'm generally a fan of action movies and dark comedy. Dumb comedy, stoner comedy, and similar don't amuse me, and most movies that could be considered romance or drama just bore me. I'm not good with horror movies and have actually been known to go into shock watching particularly gory films.

Favorite music: Hard rock, some pop, but not teeny-bopper stuff. 80's music is good for long car trips. I'm also into techno, especially as a soundtrack while I'm studying. Disturbed rocks my world. Three Days Grace occasionally takes up residence in my CD player. Linkin Park's older stuff will always be part of my top five list. My friends are forever exposing me to new stuff, and they've got great taste.

Favorite foods: A good steak, an enormous salad, fresh fruit. I'm picky about yogurt, but the right kind will vanish if left unattended.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pride. I must have my pride, or I'm just not me anymore.

Curiousity. It keeps me moving forward and helps avoid boredom. I'm intensely curious about just about everything, and, if I'm paying attention, I retain information forever. Between the two traits, my head is full of trivia and useless information.

Reading material. I read something every day, usually a novel of some kind though if I'm really pressed I'll grab a newspaper and read it front to back. A novel is the first thing I bought after leaving boot camp. No, I'm not joking. I bought a book. Then I worried about breakfast.

Music is also necessary. In the absence of music I start to get a little weird and make some of my own. I can sing waaaay too many songs from memory.

Exercise, of some kind, on a regular basis. I have too many injuries, from my time in the Navy and before, and they become much less manageable when I haven't been exercising. The only thing that makes the muscles happy is to make them work.

A need that is almost never truly satisfied is good people to surround myself with. Left in the company of jerks and assholes, I become less the person I want to be and more a person who hurts people. Good people help me to regulate my conduct, and make it easier for me to recognize the face looking back at me in the mirror.

Things I would rather not live without but do not consider essential include: My climbing shoes, as I have never met a rock wall I didn't like, and climbing barefoot would be painful. Somewhere to cook, because I'm good at it and enjoy it. I also like having control over what I'm putting in my body, and if I cooked it from scratch I know exactly what's in it. A comfortable place to sleep is also extremely important to me. If I'm not sleeping well I'm not performing to my full potential.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to improve myself. No matter how wonderful other people may think I am, I'm well aware there's lots of room for improvement, lots of things that I can work on. Physically and mentally, I still have lots of room for positive growth.

The contrast between my self-aware realization that I will never, ever, be normal enough to be popular or well-liked in most environments, and yet still wish I could be. It's not a comfortable dichotomy.

New piercings and tattoos. I know I'm getting at least four more tattoos.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at work or coming straight home to decompress. I don't get many quiet evenings during the week, and Friday is the one day I can justify not doing anything at all after class.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I signed the National Marriage Boycott petition and wear an Equality ring. If you don't know what that means, ask. I'd be happy to explain it.

I have ten tattoos, and already have several more planned out.

Very few people can accurately predict my behavior. Not because I'm inconsistent, but because I'm consistently strange and occasionally refuse to act my age. This is especially obvious when someone has given me a lot of coffee.

I recognize the hypothetical quantity known as "too many" as regards shoes, clothes, purses, and other similar items. If I never use it, have no reasonable expectation of ever using it, and have owned it for more than two years, chances are I don't need it. This hypothetical quantity does not, however, apply to books. EVER.

I have been called a freak by a drag queen for saying that some guys look hot in skirts. Specifically mini-skirts.

My definition of success doesn't include private jets, it includes personal accomplishment, pride in a job well done, and the basic comforts of life.

Really, I'm not very secretive. If someone asks a question, I'll either answer it or tell them I don't want to talk about it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're open-minded and want to talk.

If you have a firm grasp of the English language in both its spoken and written forms. Lest anyone be surprised, let me be blunt: if you send me a message that looks like "hi how r u" I will not be nice to you. I will respond, but it will be powerfully and eloquently negative. You have been warned.

If you read my entire profile and didn't consider it a waste of time.
