Since you've probably seen a few other profiles, let's go over the DON'Ts and NOTs based on things you may have erstwhile read:
I don't live life to the fullest. I don't care about the beach. I don't want a partner in crime. I'm not outdoorsy or adventurous. I don't travel much. I'm not up/down/good for/with anything/whatever. I don't work hard and immediately segue to playing hard. I don't necessarily like trying new things. I don't try everything at least once. If you want to know more, don't just ask: have a conversation with me.
And now, stream of consciousness gibberish -*-
I continue to be annoyed that the term and concept of dork has garnered cool cache in recent years. Some of us didn't choose this lifestyle...we were born this way.
I collect a bargeload of movies, some of which I never watch and some of which I discard after watching once. This is one of my more prominent and time-consuming interests. It has almost entirely replaced television as my movin' pikters of choice. The movie WALL-E makes me want to hold hands.
I own firearms and strongly support the right to do so. As a necessary part of that, I sternly emphasize the responsibilities of such ownership, as it is the irresponsible owners that ruin it for the rest of us.
I have legendary willpower. Once I have determined a certain standard, expectation, or course of action is appropriate, I can hold against the most pressing of temptations.
If I expected as much out of other people as I expect out of myself, I'd probably be alone for the rest of my life.
I prefer casual settings and activities, largely because I prefer casual attire. Dressy clothing tends to make me uncomfortably warm; a suit is a thermal iron maiden for me. However, I also prefer experiencing women in casual, comfortable settings: I'd much rather see you in your favorite sweats and tank top than a party dress.
I like going into the "Questions" parts of profiles and seeing what people say, particularly how I disagree with people. It's interesting how many people answer questions in markedly different ways than the traits they claim to have in the written sections of their profiles. I also tend to trust the Enemy rating more than the Match rating: people around 20% or higher on Enemy have consistently been incompatible with what I want.
I've noticed that, through the course of my 20s, I became more and more emotionally affected by movies and music. Ten years ago, I wouldn't flinch at something that, today, would evoke a notable response.
Man, every time I put my grubby fingers on this profile...it just gets longer and longer and longer...
My name is Ryan, so feel free to address me as such.
