My self-summary
I'm just like everyone in that I'm looking for a co-pilot for this complicated spaceship we call life.

Some might call me a private kind of guy, but maybe that's because I don't have the right people in my life to share things with right now.

I am definitely more of an indoorsy type person, but I do like to stay in shape through swimming, exercise games and the occasional jogs. Would be happy to do more outdoorsy stuff should the right person come my way.

A poignant quote that I'm fond of: 'Don't look for a partner who is eye candy. Look for a partner who is soul food.' - Karen Salmansohn
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to write good for a living but not getting very far.

My current full time job is in marketing analysis, which is not great so I'm actively trying to move on from it.

Right now, I feel like a lot of my skills and attributes are going to waste - not just in love, but in life in general. This can be really frustrating day after day and that's one of the reasons I'm on this site. Another reason is that I'm not the type of person who is capable of walking up to strangers and starting conversations.

I really want to find new friends, a new relationship and do new things while I'm still relatively young and fit!
I’m really good at
Besides playing video games, I enjoy doing creative things but I don't know if I'd be considered 'good' at most of them. I try to be 'good' at critical and fictional writing, drawing, digital art and making levels in Super Mario Maker! I think I could be good at a lot more stuff given the chance...
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure... you tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not a huge book reader but I'm trying to get back into them to improve my fictional writing skills.

Movies: Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Ghostbusters I & II, Lost in Translation, Wonder Boys, Galaxy Quest, School of Rock, Groundhog Day, Iron Man & the Marvel movies, Blade Runner, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and a lot of sci-fi and action films.

TV shows: Whose Line Is It Anyway, Chuck, My Name is Earl, Star Trek, Cowboy Bebop, Red Dwarf, Quantum Leap, Agents of SHIELD and bunch of YouTube/web shows.

Music: My favourites are probably R.E.M. and Editors. I'm generally into rock; classic, indie, etc., but if it's of high quality I don't discriminate between genres.

Video games are probably my single favourite hobby/medium. Nintendo and PC games are my faves, generally speaking. A few titles and series I couldn't do without: Fallout 4, The Sims, Mass Effect, Rock Band, The Legend of Zelda, Fire Emblem, XCOM, Skyrim.
The six things I could never do without
- My smartphone or some form of computer
- Projects
- Me time
- My glasses (my eye sight kind of sucks)
- My iPod
- Um, oxygen?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next in my life, what I have to do to get it, and IF I can get it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Right now, nothing special, usually :/
You should message me if
...you like my profile. I can't read minds so tell me if you see something you like. Please don't 'Like' me as I'm not an OKC premium member so I won't be able to see these. Just send me a message instead :)

Also, I get the occasional message from women in other countries. Sorry, but unless you're planning on living in England in the near future I'm not sure what I can offer...

If you're good at geeking out about something - anything - I think we'll get along pretty well :)
