My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the best hyperbole ever.

Latest update: May Due to a horrific* shaving accident, I am currently rocking the clean shaven look. It's been a while since I've been sans-whiskers, so I don't have any recent pictures that way. Use your imagination.

*not very horrific. More like "forgot the attachment wasn't actually attached to the trimmer."

We now return you to your regularly scheduled profile.

A friend of mine recently had some pretty wonderful things to say about me, and it seems to fit here:

You are kind. You are possibly just the right mix of adult and child. You have excellent taste in food, knickerbockers, socks, and date activities. You are valiant. You are chivalrous, and possibly therefore slightly over-accommodating. You are understanding. You are honest. You challenge the way I think about people. Your mother deserves a medal for how she raised you. You are intelligent and full of wisdom. You are patient. You are talented. You read.

In my own words:

I have a lot of love in me. I love life, I love my friends, I love my family, I love the activities I partake in on a daily basis. Almost everything I do, eat, see or watch is "one of my favorites" or "one of the best ever" (hence best hyperbole ever).

Also, I don't have a picture of myself off my camera phone in the mirror showing off my abs. According to 90% of your profiles, that means I'm immediately worth a return message, if not a date outright.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying myself as much as humanly possible. I work to live, and I'm good at it. This enjoyment comes in the form of bowling, golfing, softball, board games, video games, hiking, playing music with my band and trying out new restaurants, among other things. I love finding new, awesome restaurants. Especially if they're tiny and completely nondescript from the outside.

I was about halfway through an M. Ed (with a teaching credential attached), and then I found a job that is pretty flippin' amazing - work I enjoy, great schedule, excellent pay and amazing benefits. I think that's a pretty fair trade for not being able to finish the masters degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good at most things. If I enjoy something, I do it repeatedly and improve. If I don't enjoy something, I usually stop doing it. I try not to be arrogant, because who likes that guy...but I do have a healthy opinion of my own abilities. Specific things I do well:

-Talking. I communicate really well, have a strong grasp of the English language and I absolutely love telling stories. Half of communicating is knowing when to shut up, and despite how much I love to talk, I can listen just as well.

-Being friendly. I've met exactly three people in my entire life whom I did not like.

-Being smart. I've read a crapton of books in my lifetime, and logic puzzles and games are a favorite past time of mine. I love learning, and will oftentimes browse wikipedia to random articles just to find out new stuff. I also know to take wikipedia information with a grain of salt until I have it corroborated by credible sources. Also, corroborated is a pretty cool word.

-Being competitive. I am hugely competitive, though I draw the line at bad sportsmanship. Nobody likes that guy. But while I'm on the field or playing the game, I'm in it to win it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told on multiple occasions now that I look nothing like my profile pictures. Which is hilariously awesome, because:

1. They're all me.
2. They're mostly recent - my 30th birthday was a few years back now and the ski bike one is fairly old, but other than that, recent.

I have no idea what this says about me.

I'm also now 40 lbs lighter than I was in most of those pictures, so go me.

Other than that, I've been told I have pretty blue eyes, a nice butt, and I'm often told that I smell nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Far too many to list here, of all of these things. Here's an arbitrary list of random things in no particular order that is supposed to give you an idea of the things I like:

Songs:

1. Booty Swing, Parov Stelar
2. Wasted Years, Iron Maiden
3. Your Belgian Things, The Mountain Goats
4. Perpetuum Mobile, Penguin Cafe Orchestra
5. Anything you'd find on a classic rock radio station. Which now apparently includes songs by bands such as The Offspring. We're getting old.

Movies:

1. The Girl on the Bridge (French)
2. The Matrix
3. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
4. In Bruges
5. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

Books:

1. Peace Like a River, Leif Enger
2. Mistborn, Brandon Sanderson
3. Jurassic Park, Michael Chrichton
4. Neverwhere, Neil Gaiman
5. The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
6. The Giver, Lois Lowry

TV (which I really don't watch much of):

1. Firefly
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. Archer
4. ...yeah, I don't watch much TV

Food: I'll eat anything, as long as it doesn't have coconut, cooked mushrooms or coffee in it. Favorites include sushi and other things that are edible.

These lists are woefully incomplete - I have over 11,000 songs in my musical library, I own over 300 books and I would run out of space in here telling you about restaurants I love in the area.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, oxygen and food/water are a given, so here are six more things:

Golf
Baseball
Sushi
Board Games
The Outdoors
Music (both to listen to and play)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How sad it is that there isn't enough time in the universe for me to read, watch and play all the things I want to read, watch and play.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Rehearsing with my band, playing board games with my roommates, trying out a new restaurant with some friends or rushing to finish my round of golf before the sun sets.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've actually read the Twilight series. I lost a bet. They were awful.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are awesome.
...you don't take yourself too seriously.
...you're willing to try new things.
...you're willing to show ME new things.
...you have a book, band or an album to suggest to me.
...family is important to you - both the one you have now and the one you intend to have later. I'm serious about the kids thing being a deal breaker - if you don't want kids, I'm sure you're awesome, but I'm not interested.
...you are single, and you don't intend to date multiple people at once.
...you think that kissing is an extremely important activity that should last longer than a few seconds.
