I like to think of myself as very easy going, calm, and down to earth. I might seem a little awkward at first, but I become a goofy smartass as you get to know me better. I like sharing opinions, whether they're in agreement or disagreement. I believe that people can be friends even if they strongly disagree on different issues. I think having views challenged is the best way a person can grow.
I was a Marine for four years, and it was a valuable experience to me. I'm proud of my service, but I don't regard it as my identity. Aside from that, I'm a fairly "live and let live" guy.
I've also developed a tic disorder since I came home from Iraq. It causes me to twitch a lot, so that's pretty noticeable. I'm not too self conscious about it, and according to my friends, they stop noticing it after getting to know me for a while.
Game of Thrones, Star Trek: TNG, Adult Swim, Family Guy, Law & Order. My favorite movies include Inception, Dark Knight, 300, District 9, the original Star Wars trilogy, Shawshank Redemption, and Terminator 2.
Movies I absolutely *HATE* (I know that's not supposed to be included, but might as well have fun here) are Watchmen, Suckerpunch, and basically any other movie way too pretentious for its own good. I'm sure there are more than just recent Zack Snyder films I hate, but I can't think of any at the moment.
Other times, I host game nights with my friends.
I wish more people responded to messages. Seeing the caliber of messages that women on OkCupid mostly get, however, I understand why they don't. Still, if I messaged you, I hope you can appreciate my earnest attempt to start a conversation.
