My self-summary
I'm a geek, or a nerd, really the terms are two sides of the same coin. I'm a gamer, a reader, a writer, an editor. I am many things to many people, but mostly, I'm human. I make mistakes, I have flaws, and I'm not perfect. The few very good and close friends I have I will stand by through thick and thin. I would do a lot for the close friends I have. I do like meeting people, and though few will make it to the inner circle, I quite enjoy making new friends. Every person has a story, and is a new opportunity for something awesome.

I'm a geek, a gamer, and regardless of whatever I do with my life, that will always be a constant. I am a writer, an editor. "Words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men." As Pat Rothfuss so noted in his book, The Name Of The Wind. I like words, spelling, grammar. I'm a web developer. I make websites, I read and write code, I create something from effectively nothing. I take letters and numbers, bits of nothing and turn them into something great. I am an artist, a scholar, learning is a life-long pursuit, both in and out of the class room. Most of the truly awesome and amazing things that I've learned to do, I didn't learn in a class.

I am many things, to many people. Most importantly, I am a person.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning programming languages, making websites, bartending (for friends and family at weddings, parties, events, and so on.) I'm also singing along to Let It Go because why not?
I’m really good at
stuff. Editing, I think. PvP in SWTOR, definitely. Really, SWTOR is kinda my jam. So many possibilities, but really, I'm good at stuff. So are you.
The first things people usually notice about me
Fairly skinny (126 lbs), white, 5'10.5 (aka not short, but not super tall either).

I'm quiet. Really. Quiet. My vocal chords do not allow for my voice to be loud under normal circumstances, and attempts to be loud = throat hurting from strain. Spend enough time around me and you'll get used to it, so it becomes less of an issue. First contact though? Most definitely quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, The Black Company series, Garrett P.I., and basically everything else Glen Cook has written. It's probably easier to list authors over books.

Movies: My standards for movies are probably pretty low. My only filters are: it must interest me, and must be entertaining. If it holds my interest and entertains me, I will probably call it a good movie. The majority of the movies I find good fall into the fantasy and science fiction genres. I like some action, some romance, but not much in the way of comedy. I have a dry sense of humor, or so I've been told. It is likely the reason I don't find much of the comedy movies to be... funny.

Shows: Though I don't watch much TV, (I watch everyone on the computer) NCIS (and LA), Doctor Who, Intelligence, White Collar, Suits, The Mentalist, and Elementary all hold my interest currently. There are others I'll watch on occasion, but those are what come to mind at the moment.

Food: I like pasta, I like shrimp and lobster. I enjoy many forms of meat, and generally avoid Thai, Chinese, and anything else prone to containing nuts and peanuts. I absolutely love to drink black tea, and on occasion, I tend to expand my horizons and try new things.

Manga: Currently, I'm keeping up with Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tale, The Breaker: New Waves, The Gamer, TRUMP, D.I.C.E, Dead Sorcerer's City, Soul Cartel, Shingeki no Kyojin, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Detective Conan, Highschool DxD, HSDK, and the New Prince of Tennis. Though I have read many more that have been completed.. always on the lookout for new series that I can enjoy.

Anime: Honestly, I don't watch much, most of the anime that I have seen, has ended, and I went on to read the manga and didn't go back. That said, some of my favorite anime include Guilty Crown, D.N.Angel, Angel Beats, Sword Art Online, and Attack on Titan.
The six things I could never do without
Aside from the essentials? I could do without most things. Adapt, survive, move on. That said, there are several things I'd very much like to not lose. These things I very much enjoy in one way or another.

Hot Tea. I adore hot black tea, and it is easily my number 1 most consumed drink. From the generic bagged tea to the flavorful and amazing loose leaf, black tea is fantastic. Earl Grey is a good staple tea, but if it's available, I quite enjoy Lady Grey, English and Irish Breakfast. Though I'm starting to like coffee.. it's weird.

Comfy clothes. I don't like the cold (I don't plan on living in New England forever. If I do end up staying in New England, once I have my own place, it will most likely be no less than 70 inside year round, and in many cases much warmer.) I like to be comfortable.

Friends. Good friends.. the type of friend that would follow you into the mouth of hell to help you save a cherished loved one... they aren't easy to find. Good friends also keep you grounded and sane.

Family. Generally speaking, we don't choose our family. In many cases, the friends we gain over our lives become our extended family. The family we choose can speak volumes about ourselves, moreso than the family we can't. Family, in its many shapes, sizes, and aspects is important, though, and I would really prefer to have a family.

People. Generally speaking, I feel most humans on this earth are good people. Everyone has their own lives, and ways of doing things, and we don't necessarily meet new people under the best of circumstances. However, given proper circumstances, I feel that most people are good people, normal, just like you and me. It is because of this belief that I have very little issue meeting people in person that I meet on the internet. I use the internet, and I'm mostly sane. I assume that means that 90% of the people I meet, talk to, and enjoy chatting with are also mostly sane, and so meeting them isn't a worry for me. If I worried about everyone I met, I never would have hopped on a plane to Alabama to spend time with a friend I met online. I wouldn't have had an absolutely amazing time, and wouldn't have made new friends. People are good, and I don't want them to go away.

Honesty. I spent a good portion of my life lying. I lied a lot, grew use to it, and it became a natural habit. Then, when I was 21 or so, something changed. I stopped lying so much, I changed as an individual and probably became a better person for it. So much can be gained through honesty and honest interactions with people. Lying can get you places, and if you know everything everyone says is a lie, it's honesty in a different form, but really, honesty without lies is an amazing thing. I try to be honest with everyone I meet, and it is most definitely something I would rather not do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about code, and the new concepts I'm learning. I think about 'work', I think about things. Friends, people I've met, places I want to go, conventions, cosplay. I think about many things, the world in my mind is most definitely more awesome than the world in front of my eyes.

In other news, I actually spend a bit of time wondering why all the high match percentages (80% and higher) have such low friend percentages.
On a typical Friday night I am
Inside, on the computer, laughing and having a good time with my friends. I have a cup or two of tea with me, comfy clothes on, and am having a blast.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That, as shocking as it may be, I'm a fairly honest individual. Words are wind, however, and I can't prove that without meeting you first.

So, pick any of these (or don't, I'm a sign, not a cop): I know basically all of the lyrics to Taylor Swift's song I Knew You Were Trouble, I shave my ankles (because socks tend to itch, and smooth skin is so comfy), and/or I can bend some of the fingers on my hand back to my wrist (well, to the top of my hand/wrist area).
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–26
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to talk. Alternatively, if you want to arrange a time where we can meet for tea/coffee and save all our conversations for then, I would be ok with that as well.
