My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting.
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me."

I'm sure we both can admit that online dating is a bit weird. Honestly dating in general has become an oddity for me.

What I'm looking for is quite simple. Finding it however has proved quite difficult.

I'm not on here to get laid. It's sad that there is a need to point this out right away. Physical contact is something that may come in time, but I prefer getting to know someone first.

I look at online dating with a mildly skeptical view but I am aware that good things are possible. As of late it has become exceedingly difficult to find someone with whom I have both emotional and physical chemistry. So I see this as another avenue to explore. I still prefer to have relationships develop organically. And if you're like me you don't want to be on a dating website forever.

It seems crazy that I can't seem to find many people who are cool, and think that I'm cool, and just want to be awesome together.

Things about me:

I adhere to the basic philosophy of not
being an asshole. (you should too)

INTP if you're into that whole thing.

With little to no ego I can tell you I'm a good hearted and kind.

Quick wit.

Actually 6'2"

When I was little I wanted to be a transformer.

I really prefer to travel by bicycle whenever I can. Yes, even in the cold, dark winter. I've driven my car three times since January.

I'm not part of any particular sub-culture.

Appreciator and practitioner (hobbyist) of the arts.

I'm not a serial killer or a sociopath. If I were a gummy bear I would be a cannibal.

I'm not in a band.

I don't get the whole mustache or bacon bandwagons. I enjoy bacon. Just not enough to have bacon scented candles.

I would like to go more places but I hate driving on highways. Need a road trip companion? I make pretty killer mixes.

Outdoor enthusiast. Seriously most days I would much rather be outside doing something but given that I don't have much natural insulation there is a love/hate relationship with winter.

Friend of the animals. Domesticated and wild. Unless something messes with me or has the potential to severely injure me I'll do what I can to cause no harm. On this note you shouldn't kill spiders unless they really have it coming. Them looking weird is not a valid excuse. Imagine how you look to them.

I've been told I have interesting if somewhat cynical perspectives on things.
I like to think of this as a positive. Blind acceptance is plain silly.

I'm a smart cookie without documentation.

I don't believe everything I read or hear.
Critical thinking is a virtue.

I do my best to live in the moment.

I enjoy competition but rarely watch any sports.

I'm all that and a BOC

Quotes from friends:

"Genuine comes to mind."
"Smart, Artistic, Easy going."
"Interesting in a good way."
"Fortress of Solitude."

Here are some traits that I would admire (not mandatory) in someone I would want to date.

Being the right kind of weirdo.

Someone who cares about being a good example for humanity.

Someone who is active but understands the glory of being lazy sometimes.

Someone artistically inclined. For the ability to have conceptual ideas/discussions. Also for mutual arts and crafts time.

Someone who doesn't read into things to an extreme degree. It is important to have open communication .

Someone who is cool with personal time. Not always thinking that not calling/texting all the time means you don't care or something is wrong.

Someone who has the ability to laugh at themselves. We all do things that should make us laugh hysterically.
Humor is a cornerstone.

Someone who is cool with eventually being a little spoon.
This could be us

Someone who knows the virtue of loyalty. I'm by no means overly possessive, but if I'm dating someone exclusively I'm not going to do something stupid to jeopardize something good. Neither should you.

And physical attractiveness matters. Well.. we should be attracted to each other if we are going to date. This doesn't fall within any particular guidelines.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fixing bikes.
Working a ton.
Looking for harmony.
Sleeping in when I can.
Avoiding oncoming traffic.
Making music in my downtime.
Mastering karate and friendship.
Eating around almonds in my trail mix.
Wishing I had my own pinball machine.
Trying to avoid the top death bed regrets.
Searching for a big enough couch and bathtub.

I have two jobs that I actually enjoy doing.
I work on the production side of a local
custom sports apparel company, and I have
a part time gig at a bicycle shop. Both are family
owned. I really dig that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking naps.
Excellent snuggler.
Wasting time online.
Petting furry friends.
Fixing your computer.
Occasionally making good music.
Unintentionally sneaking up on people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully that I'm not on fire. If I am please at the very least give me a tap on the shoulder, with a fire extinguisher.

If I'm not aflame I don't really have a good barometer of readily available quotes. My friends wonder why I don't have a lady. So I suppose I'm not horrible looking.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Music
2. Questions
3. Coffee/tea
4. Technology
5. Compassion
6. Evolving perception
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I should probably drink more water.
How to see the world through unbiased eyes.
How many people are on here that do not know how to fix red eye.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, sleeping, or on my porch. If I had a hammock I would be sleeping on my porch, after work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm left-handed. There, I said it.

I'm conflicted about using exclamation points.
They always seem overly dramatic.

And I have a bad habit of being into someone, only to find out they are in a relationship. Hence my being on here.

I also borrowed my copy of The Aristocats to someone I met on here and they never gave it back. I'm still pretty disgruntled about it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Knowing that you (may) get tons of messages from dudes. Me initially contacting you may be sporadic. Sadly I'm in a sea of guys either looking to get laid or just looking to be an ass. A few excellent people are out there though. I like to think of myself as one of them.

Bonus points:

If your reasons for being on here are similar to mine.

You think the nice ride bikes are ugly and you secretly want to see a pedal pub tip over.

If you want to start a bicycle gang. Or you have a spot open on yours.

You're seriously serious about not being a serious person, seriously.

If you have realistic expectations.

If you have the ability to make free time.

If you are emotionally available. (This seems to be the biggest hurdle.)

If you want to go on a bike ride or have something you can't stop yourself from typing.

You want to hang out and marathon netfilx once and a while.

We won't date if:

You adhere to a religious doctrine. (Spirituality is something completely different.)

Use the term(s) "yolo" or "swag" (unless on the rare occasion it's funny.)

You suffer from FOMO.

You have unresolved issues with your ex.

You own any clothing with "juicy" or "pink" on it.

You're only looking for a solely online correspondence.
(If you came across my profile, or I yours and you are outside a reasonable meeting area a digital exchange of radness would be alright.)

You have a kid. (I'm sure you and your kid are just fine but I've tried this and at this point in my life it's not for me.)

You're allergic to cats. (Not a end all but my clothing possibly has stray hair that is slowly replacing the original fabric.)

Good lord, you've made it to the end. Here is a cookie.
