My self-summary
I can be a very funny guy, but only if you aren't going to cry when there's mud in your eye.

Having a date is just the compulsion I'm looking for to drive me away from being a workaholic and towards enjoying some of the amazing sights and sounds around this city. And state. And planet.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been moving a bit, and transferring jobs and companies along with it.

One of the largest collections of nerdy board games amongst my nerdy friends belongs to me.

I've been drinking craft beer (when I don't have a migraine, that is)-- I choose not to like IPAs, but I have a special place in my heart for belgian ales and the less overpowering sours. Most anything else that I do could probably be made better alongside a good beer.

As soon as my work schedule evens out, I imagine I'll join a volleyball league and maybe something else. While I really dislike exercise in general, it's hard to beat the fun of amateur sports.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not entirely certain, it really depends on the context. In casual social situations around people I don't know, I will sometimes be making off-color jokes and then behaving sheepishly, or maybe just being polite and nondescript.

Professionally, I'm guessing it's that I tend to be assertive.

I have a pretty loud laugh. I guess I'm taller than I look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
See bottom for a description of my perspectives on some of this culture.

Books - Philip K. Dick (Ubik, etc.), The Idiot, the Nightwatch series (the Russian one), most anything by Neil Gaiman

Graphic Novels (which I call comics without caring) - The Sandman Series, The Books of Magic, the Dark Knight Returns, the Dark Knight Strikes Again.

Movies - Drive (x300), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Blade Runner, Nightwatch, Daywatch (Nightwatch 2.0), Scott Pilgrim (x100), Dodgeball

Shows - Arrested Development (or at least up until the 4th season), Community, Always Sunny, Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad (who doesn't).

Music - Lower Dens, Stagnant Pools, Joy Division, Interpol, The National, Still Corners, Arcade Fire, Sonic Youth, Broken Social Scene, Harvey Danger.

Food - Smoothies. I love smoothies. I'm also partial to sushi and bacon.

Music : I pretty much abhor Rap and Country. I know a lot of you people like Bluegrass, which I also hate. When I say "Hate", it doesn't mean that I necessarily hate people who listen to the music, just that I have some really pompous distaste for the music _personally_.
Movies: I really like movies which push the envelope for me. Whether it's the incredible surrealism of What Dreams May Come, the impact a long gaze or muted expression in Drive, or the incredible amount of satire and self-awareness in a movie like Blazing Saddles. These may all seem very unrelated, but to me it's all about seeing how a director / cast / whatever can stretch my mental space in some of these areas. That being said, B movies still appeal to me for some reason... But big budget movies that suck (cough Transformers cough) do not.
TV : We're pretty much in the middle of a golden age of television right now. Breaking Bad was hands down the most impactful TV series I've ever seen from a medium perspective, and I'm looking forward to more shows which involve the same level of technical craft and attention to detail. Reality shows are on the other end of the spectrum, and I think they're abysmal.
The six things I could never do without
I'm starting to think that an awesome view is one of my six things.
Really important, altruistic, selfless things. (Sort of, not really, it's complicated, we have a history, etc.)
On a typical Friday night I am
After moving: Working, or wandering the bellevue mall directly after working to try to decompress.

Before moving: Playing the worst campaign of dungeons and dragons I have ever participated in or playing nerdy board games. Drinking a few beers while doing this, then going to bed reasonably early so that I can get up in time (and functioning enough) to make it to open gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often gather as much information as I can about someone from their pictures before I read their profile. It's a pretty bad habit, I think, but I also think it's prudent.

I have a lot of good reasons to be self-confident, but the online dating scene somehow makes me forget all of them. That's fine... I do alright in person.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I want feedback. No, really.

I ultimately want to end up with a dynamic person. Somebody who would eventually want to do a variety of activities capitalizing on the awesome locale, as well as also being comfortable with some downtime. Also, be comfortable with cerebral conversations that don't always have a goal in mind.
