My self-summary
Well, my profile is a bit long, so I'll treat this section as something of a TL:DR. Information about me:

-I have all the essentials: A job, car, and stable income/living.
-Exercise is nice, but I don't enjoy exercise that *feels* like exercise, so I prefer methods alternative to simply going to a gym.
-I'm not a perfect physical specimen, but I am getting back in shape and I'm stronger than I look.
-I am a nerd; this means I enjoy video games, board/card games, and things of that nature.
-I am a handyman. I like to fix things and make things that are useful. I wanted a thigh bag for hiking, so I made one.
-I like to do outdoors things. I enjoy hiking (okay, who doesn't), camping, beach combing, exploring.

-I know what I'm looking for in a relationship and a woman. I have no trouble telling what this is to anyone.
-I am emotionally stable/cool. It takes something pretty big to phase me.
-I always try to be honest and understand other people's views, especially when I don't agree.
-I try to plan ahead and be relaxed, but sometimes having a day of spontaneity is nice.
-I haven't had the opportunity to travel yet, but I want to travel all over the place.

I have plenty of hopes, but no expectations.

Never give up. Never surrender.
What I’m doing with my life
I am employed. I have been unemployed before, and it made me realize some things. I hate sitting around doing nothing with my days. When you're unemployed, no job is beneath you. I recently acquired a new job that comes with a significant raise and a minor change of duties at a new company, so it is interesting to be starting that out.

I plan to have the money for a down payment on a house well before I have actual need of it.
I'm getting back in shape after a long time at a desk job. I'm down ~35 pounds this year, and I've got ~40 more to go before I'm satisfied.
Going on long walks. (I mean long. 10+ miles.)

When I find the woman I'm looking for, we're going to go hike down into the Grand Canyon and spend a few days down there swimming, relaxing, and enjoying each other's company.

This year, I've gotten into a bit more cosplay/creation that I have been in the past. Making things is a lot of fun.
I’m really good at
Giving advice.
Listening to problems.
Letting the little things go.
Observing small details that give clues to the overall picture.
Making terrible, terrible puns. My roommates theorize that this is the reason I'm still single.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have brown hair.
I can, but will not, keep a beard.
I wear hiking boots nearly all the time.
I'm not slim, but I am stronger than I probably appear.
I have a tendency to be sarcastic, and this can be a bit abrasive when first getting to know someone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I will always have many books, be it in physical or digital form.
I read from a variety of authors; everything from Frank Herbert, Julie E. Czerneda, L.E. Modesitt Jr., Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, and so many more. I'm just getting around to picking up American Gods, though it's been recommended by a thousand people.

I believe that music is far more important to brand recognition than marketing companies realize.
For me, the beat of a song can make it or break it, to the exclusion of all other things. This means that in general, my music tastes vary widely.

I enjoy food.
I eat for the taste, and am fairly picky with what I prefer
Meat is delicious.

I enjoy video games and board games, though I don't have as much time to play them now as I used to.
The six things I could never do without
Logical Thought
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How can I get out of waking up this morning?
If I was trapped in a book/game, which one would it be?
If I could leave everything behind and go on a fantastic voyage with little to no chance of ever returning, would I do it?
Education systems and their shortcomings, particularly in relation to the digital society that we now inhabit.
Why do I always get the extra penny?
Basically anything is up for grabs.
What's the problem with baseball puns? They're kind of hit or miss.
Why should you avoid a pack of rabid mathematicians? They have strength in numbers.
On a typical Friday night I am
As with everyone, there are never enough hours in the day. Or the week. Or just entirely.

Balancing going out and staying in are incredibly important. Too much of one or the other and you burn out. Every vacation I've been on has been lackluster about 4 days in, because at that point, you're just ready to go home and nap in your nice comfy bed. It's different if you're in it for a goal, or are constantly changing areas, but if you go to Hawaii for 2 weeks, I find that you're going to end up spending at least a few evenings wishing you were at home, snuggling with your [pet of choice].

Lately, Fridays are working late, but I go for an 8-mile walk early in the morning, so I end up fairly exhausted by the end of it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is the portion where I will actually give you insight to who I am. Read closely.

To me, it's really the big stuff that is important. How well do we get along? How well do we fit into each-other's lives? What is the chemistry like? How compatible are we on a fundamental level? How natural are our interactions? These are things that have effectively no bearing on your match/friend percent, but are arguably some of the most important factors.

I know exactly what I want and what I'm looking for. It's a good topic of discussion that I have no problem telling anyone about. Ask me about it.

It can take a lot to gain my trust. Once you have it, that's a very important thing to me. It is even more difficult to gain my love. If you have that, you will have it forever. Bar none. The situation may change, but once you're in, you're in. There are some stories behind this, and it's not likely to change.

I hate smoke and mirrors. I am who I am. You can take it or leave it because in the end, who I am will not change. I don't enjoy hiding behind masks to make people feel better, so I do my best not to do it. That said, I'm always trying to better myself, so I'm not some stagnant personality that will never change. I'm not perfect, nor will I ever be, but that won't stop me from giving it my all.

I like to be doing stuff: building, going, moving forward. But sometimes all you need to do is slow down, walk along the beach, ponder the intricacies of your life, and consider what it would be like to be able to pick up everything and move to Europe for a while.

If you ask me anything, I will give you an honest, complete answer. Be prepared for it.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you read the above and are still here, you should message me. In dating and in the rest of life, statistics don't matter. They can tell you numbers, and give you hints, but in the end what really matters has to be discovered through mutual adventure. I know there are plenty of things I desire in a woman, but if I meet the right one? None of that matters.

What that means is that if you message me, or I message you and you decide to reciprocate is: Ask questions. I can inquire after you all day, if you like. However, if you never ask anything of me, it seems to me that you aren't actually interested in connecting. Conversation is a two way street. When a response lacks any sort of real conversation, I assume one of two things: You didn't read my profile, or you're not interested.

If you have concerns, message me. Profiles are always incomplete, and tend to be worded to be as inoffensive as possible. You'll never know if you don't bring it up.

You should *really really* message me if you Praise the Sun or enjoy some Jolly Co-operation. Seriously.

You probably shouldn't message me if:
You're into threesomes or open relationships. Polyamorous lifestyles are not for me.
You hate video games and nerds.
You find anything I've written to be incredibly abhorrent.
