My self-summary
I'm the best hyperbole ever.

Latest update: April I'm not really paying much attention on here lately - life is busy with a new job and some changes. Don't let that stop you from contacting me - just be patient with my response time. Also, 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). I rarely ever speak in absolutes, so very few things are "the best ever." That's reserved for things like Breakfast at Tiffany's, which is the best song of all time, or the 1984 49ers, who were the best football team of all time, or Wayne Gretzky, who is the best hockey player ever about twice over.

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
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 fantastic. Eventually I want to finish that up, but it's not possible right now with my job.
I’m really good at
Everything? Ok, that precludes modesty so that can't be true. I don't like being mediocre, so if I'm doing something I enjoy, I'll work at getting better at it. Also, I swear I'm not arrogant (this statement seems to be impossible to utter without it being completely false, but bear with me), I'm confident. I do my best not to be arrogant, because I don't want to be that guy. Ok, serious answer:

-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
So I'm changing the heading of this category to "Physical Things That I Have Been Complimented On" because I've heard a few times that I have a great butt, but since I don't walk around butt-first, that's probably not the first thing you're going to see.

-My eyes
-I've been told I have a great butt (this apparently bears repeating)
-I've also been told I have great calves
-My smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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

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 Mexican.

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
Family and friends are a given, so here are six more things:

Baseball
Sushi
The Internet
The Outdoors
Music (to listen to)
Musical Instruments (to play - Piano or Bass Guitar at the top of the list)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That awkward moment when you realize you've found a profile for someone you know in real life.
On a typical Friday night I am
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've actually read the Twilight series. I lost a bet. They were awful.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...you are awesome.
...you don't take yourself too seriously.
...you CAN take yourself seriously when the situation calls for it.
...you're willing to try new things.
...you're willing to show ME new things.
...you're just as comfortable cuddling on the couch in front of a movie as you are getting all fancy for a nice dinner or dancing.
...you have a band or an album to suggest to me.
...you have a book 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 lasts longer than a few seconds.
