My self-summary
I'm Eddie and I just moved to Seattle from upstate New York. Looking forward to mild winters!

Heads up that I will be traveling a lot for work but will be back in Seattle for weekends. If things progress I can change that but we'll get there when we get there.

At this point in my life I'm pretty comfortable with where I am but I'm constantly trying to better myself. Whether that's learning new things, trying new activities, or visiting new places. Relationships should include fun conversations and meaningful ones too. I've learned with time and experience that it can't just be about physical and superficial things. Making me laugh is a great way to start things off. I can't handle people who are too uptight and can't laugh at themselves.

If I like somebody, I'll tell you or you'll realize it by our communication. Waiting 3 days before calling or texting you? Who made that one up? If I like you, I'll contact you shortly. I don't care what it says about me because eventually I'll find somebody that likes that.
What I’m doing with my life
Keeping in shape by running, doing yoga, and dancing (sometimes all in the same day). I used to be much more active with running but only can juggle it on occasion between dancing and learning. I actively do dance many times a month and go to different events all around the country to meet new people. I teach swing classes at RPI and love being a part of building a scene. I like being able to see somebody learn to love dance.

I'm starting to get more in tinkering with robots, drones, and home projects (despite not owning a home)
I’m really good at
Cooking, making people feel at ease, social dancing, and being a gentleman.
The first things people usually notice about me
I apparently don't dress casual enough for the area. I came from the east coast where it is not as laidback
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Modern Romance: It explains so much about this new dating culture and knowledge is power!

Food, I'll eat just about anything but love sushi, thai food, and American food

Shows: Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny, Seinfeld, South Park, Breaking Bad, Master of None

Dark Knight, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Matrix, 50/50, Remember the Titans, The Replacements
The six things I could never do without
Good Beer
Great music
Goals
Inspiration
Goofy friends
Working Legs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Where I am with life and if I'm doing all I can.
- Where I want to travel to next for dance, exploration, and fun.
- Learning to live with insecurities
- How to keep learning about the world and how I fit in it
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy with people or cooking something awesome. Most of my activities are during the week so it's nice to not have to out and about with all the people going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watched the movie Bridesmaids with 4 dudes (but it was a pretty funny movie regardless)
You should message me if
- You're full of kindness but can be blunt when the need calls for it
- Doesn't see the point shop in a mall each week
- Have a goal beyond going to the club at the end of the week
- Understands that relationships are about compromises and working together
- Has an encouraging nature
- Believes that friendship is the first step to a relationship
- Don't mind some peace and quiet between conversations
- You don't find the need to be chatty all the time
- Don't want to settle for where you are in life
- Like to cuddle
- Shows some affection through physical touch
- Don't mind participating in sports, video games, and trying out fun things
- Like the board game vibe (the good kind like Coup or Catan)

It's taken some relationships to create this small list but it's a start to help not waste your time.

I don't get many messages but do not expect a reply if you only message "Hi" "How are you?" . Women won't reply to it and we can have the same standards.

Would love to get to know you if you can relate
