My self-summary
I hate this part and most of what I was going to put here ended up in the following section so instead you get some miscellaneous information about me here.

-I often surprise people with my fairly broad knowledge base, the result of a love of learning and having way too much free time to spend reading.
-I don't have much recollection of the period from late 2003 until late 2005/early 2006 and what I do remember tends to revolve around Everquest and later World of Warcraft.
-I really dislike competing with people I care about, often suggesting activities where we can work together instead.
-I tend to really procrastinate on things I don't really want to do. For example, this section of my profile was blank for about nine months.
-What drove me to study history and international relations was my love of board games such as Risk, Axis and Allies, and Diplomacy. When I told this to a professor who held me in high regard I could visibly see his respect for me ebb away by the expression on his face.
-I value character and being a decent human being much more than success, both in myself and others. Many of the people I highly admire are considered failures by society at large.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a computer and a cubicle at what I like to describe as a post-industrial sweat shop while finishing a graduate program in social science education. Typically, I work every weekday and go to UCF in the evenings but my weekends are my own. Whenever I have free time during the daytime hours in the week, it is spent doing things that will hopefully help me secure a teaching job sometime soon.
I’m really good at
Working useless trivia into conversations.
Making a fool of myself (usually willingly).
Making small talk with complete strangers.
Tying seemingly unrelated pieces of information together.
Just about anything I set my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am unusually polite when first meeting people, to the point where it seems to bother some but also makes great first impressions on others. I also tend to be generally cheerful, avoid criticizing others, and use a lot of self-deprecating humor. The politeness generally fades a little with time, the cheerfulness does not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These lists are by no means complete, but here goes.

Books: Orwell, Tolkien, George Martin, Robert Howard, Neil
Gaiman, Harry Turtledove, Frank Herber, Robert Jordan, Alexandre Dumas...I read a lot of non-fiction as well (mostly history books) but listing authors there isn't nearly as fun. Currently reading a couple of books on south and southeast asian history.

Shows: The only shows I currently watch on tv as they air are Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and The Walking Dead. Through netflix and other streaming services, I binge watch a number of other shows once entire seasons are put up.
TV General Rule #1: if it gets cancelled before the end of the first season, I probably really liked it.
TV General Rule #2: if it gets cancelled after just 2 or 3 years and is brought back because it became a cult favorite, I probably really liked it.
TV General Rule #3: If it is a foreign concept that has been reworked into a US show, I probably saw the original and liked it more. Exception to this rule: The Office, at least for the first 5-6 years or so.

Music: The Beatles, Queen, The Police, Pixies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, Pinback, Maritime, The Shins, pretty much everything that can be labeled as new wave, and a lot of classical- especially the early 20th century stuff.

Movies: My favorite films of the past few years have been the Marvel superhero films which culminated in the Avengers, those are the only ones which I consistently made it out to a theater see on a big screen. Longtime favorites include the LoTR films and a lot of sci-fi from the late 70's to early 90's (think Star Wars to Jurassic Park). I also watch a lot of dramas, biopics, and foreign films. With these I tend to enjoy films where people go through some really awful things but in the end come out ok; think along the lines of Hotel Rwanda and The Pianist.
The six things I could never do without
Internet access. (It hurts to admit this)
Receiving praise.
Quiet time to think and read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where will I be a year from now?
Why people send messages that only say 'hi'.
If the Germans could have won World War I by adopting the Moltke plan ran rather than Schlieffen plan.
The number 42, life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home with a book or a movie, or maybe meeting my family for dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a (knowingly absurd) fear of lizards and amphibians. Strangely, it does not extend to snakes though. Update: People seem to find this really funny so I'm going to explain how I may react a little more.
See a lizard or frog outdoors at a distance: no visible reaction but I try to stay aware of its location.
See a lizard or frog outdoors really close to me: may scream in a still somewhat manly way, yelp, or jump up.
A lizard or frog is on me: scream like a little girl, run around in full panic.
A lizard or frog is inside the house: nervous rambling, can't sit still in whatever room it is in, look for someone to deal with it, consider leaving the house, generally have difficulties sleeping that night if I don't know if the situation was resolved or know for sure it wasn't.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You think we may have similar interests and could be friends. People who like board games are especially welcome.
I also really enjoy meeting people with different interests, experiences, and perspectives as they provide opportunity to learn about new things.
Your introductory message will actually serve as an introduction and consist of more than one or two simple sentences. I'm a big believer that the effort someone puts into starting a dialogue is indicative of their interest in the other person.
