I'm a fan of pretty much every genre of video game except for sports. (Go out and be active instead of simulating running!) My favorites are the RTS, FPS and RPG genres. I also enjoy many classic board games. I love games like Catan, but I'll always have a spot in my heart for the great American classics like Monopoly.
Did I scare you away yet? No? Well, when I'm not glued to a screen, I have several other activities I like to do. I love to cook (I've got a batch of cupcakes in the oven right now, actually!), and I'm constantly looking for new recipes to challenge myself with. I also like to just wander around in my car or by foot, exploring areas I've never been to. It's not uncommon for me to head off on foot in a single direction and keep heading that way until I find something interesting.
I'm rather conservative, but I do consider myself "open minded". I thoroughly enjoy a good and open discussion about politics or religion. It can be very intellectually stimulating, and if my viewpoint is changed, so much the better.
I tend to take relationships very slowly. I'm not afraid of commitment by any means, but I do want to make sure both people are comfortable with the relationship before it becomes more intimate. I'm not interested in getting into your pants. I'm looking for someone I can build a good relationship and friendship with that can last a lifetime.
I am a nerd, gamer, and programmer.
