To the crux of the matter; I suppose I'm here because I'd like to meet someone. I'm ultimately looking for something long term, but don't feel the need to rush heedlessly into anything. I'd like to get to know you first. Which seems like a good idea, I'd think =)
So, about me? I'm a 35 year old guy with a fairly wide geek streak. I'm moderately outgoing, like meeting people and making friends. I like playing board games (q.v. Citadels, Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Zombicide, etc.. none of that Parker Brothers Monopoly crap). I don't drink a ton, but i do really enjoy trying out new and exciting craft beers. I'd say I'm fairly quick witted (with my friends it's kind of a prerequisite.. the jokes and puns tend to fly fast and furious, even if we do tend towards the lowbrow) and irreverent, but I can be serious if I need to be.
At the same time I'm not a total nerd.. I like Hockey (Go Canucks!) although I'm not religious about it. I'm trying to get into Soccer (Futbol?), and while I'm not super outdoorsy I try to go "real" camping at least once a year. I like bike rides on a sunny day, and because I live a block from a local lake I try to go swimming as often as possible when the weather is nice. I just bought one of those stand up paddle boards last summer, and that's been a lot of fun. Can't wait for actual spring to get here.
Sometimes it can take me a little while to warm up to people, but I'm not standoffish by any means. A little shy maybe? I can hold my own in social gatherings though, and enjoy being around people. Don't worry about it; I don't!
