My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Holy shit, look at this long-ass profile. Someone clearly has too much time on their hands. :3

------------------

Howdy!

I like animals, music, dirty and self-deprecating humor, weird stuff, games, and the internet. If you like those things, we'll probably be friends!

I'm a programmer, a homeowner, an artist/animator, and very much a night person. I have a steady career, a secret double life, a wonderful family, two cats, and a small mountain of student loans and medical debt.

I don't place too much emphasis on MB tests, but for those of you who do, I'm an (I/E)NFP. Shocking plot twist: I trend towards E when I'm online, gaming, or hanging out in large groups, and trend towards I in real life, in situations where I'm uncomfortable, and when I'm having 1-on-1 conversations. I feel like I get along best with people who are shy in big social groups (I'll take care of both of us!) and good at one-on-one conversations (I'm good at talking, but you've gotta keep me going with questions and discussion topics).

How to score easy points with me:

- Have musical tastes that are similar to / compatible with mine! Being able to "speak music" with another person is a huuuuge perk for me.
- Enjoy sappy, romantic, emotional stuff. I'm not the mopey kind of person who's always living under a raincloud, but I do like to be with people who are emotionally open.
- Have some sort of weird/geeky hobby (e.g. LARPing, cosplay, furcons, tabletop gaming), but also have the social awareness to feign normalcy in public. :D
- Be a PC gamer! It's really helpful when we can spend time playing games together. :D
- Enjoy sex! Especially the cuddly, snuggly, sappy variety.
- Love animals, especially cats!
- Be familiar with internet/geek culture!
- Be health-conscious! I've been working hard to get back in shape since college, and having a healthy partner is great for accountability/motivation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Coding, doing art stuff, gaming, hanging out with friends, and music.

I work as a coder at a web dev shop, where we mostly build learning software. It's not tremendously glamorous, but it keeps food on the table and I enjoy the people.

After work, I occasionally build games or do freelance art work on the side, for extra cash. Lately, one of my secret side projects has kind of taken off, and I'm sorta playing it out to see just how far I can run with it. One day, I'd love to make the transition into doing one of my hobbies full time, but I want to take advantage of my steady dayjob for a while, first.

When I'm not building games, I like to play 'em. Video games, mostly, but I also love board and card games, and I'm dying to try out some proper tabletop gaming some time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Uhhh, so I'm a pretty decent coder/developer/artist/animator, I guess? Generally speaking, the things I make are well-received and people enjoy them, which makes me happy!

I'm good at seeing both/many sides of a discussion, which might be related to empathy or something. I am very slow to pick sides, and I always want to hear multiple opinions before forming my own.

I'm a good gamer! High diamond SC2, high Duelist in WoW, I make crazy things in Minecraft, I clean house with a chopper or a tank in BF4.

I used to be a halfway-decent pianist, and I still love music to death, but it's been a while since I've played regularly. I've totally got a keyboard, a keytar, and a melodica, though, and I still love to fiddle around with them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Just going off of things I've been told:

My voice is usually the first thing people mention, actually.

Apparently I look younger than I am, which I suppose is a good thing.

After that, probably the fact that I am a bit chubby, lazily dressed, and overdue for a haircut.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I'm a huge sucker for animated movies with awesome soundtracks and cheesy heartwarming plots. Lion King, How To Train Your Dragon, Up - basically anything made by Dreamworks, Pixar, or early Disney. Also a big fan of epics, war movies, sci-fi, and anything with a cool story or an awesome score. Oh, The Prestige definitely needs to be mentioned. I love The Prestige. Some comedy every now and then, too, but I get most of that from shows.

Shows: 30 Rock, South Park, Colbert (RIP), Game of Thrones, Futurama, Tim & Eric, SVU, Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, or whatever happens to be on at the time.

Books: I don't read books very often. Please don't hate me. I don't have anything against books; I love books. I just love other forms of entertainment more.

Music: Film/game soundtracks (Zimmer, Powell, Oematsu, Kondo), glitch/industrial (BT, Glitch Mob), weird-flavored world shit with lots of syncopation and strangeness (Emancipator, Beats Antique), electroswing (Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar), and dance/techno - especially when it's genre-bending (Daft Punk, Bond, Lindsey Stirling).

Food: So this one's changed a lot since college. I used to be a fast food junkie, and I'm still paying for it, but lately I've been paying a lot more attention to what I eat, cooking a lot of my own food at home, and picking better things when I go out to lunch with the gang at work. I've lost most of the weight on a weird low-carb, high-fat diet, but I promise I'm not preachy about it.

Also, crunchy peanut butter. Mmmm....

Games: SC2, Minecraft, WoW (quit in 2011, could be persuaded to play again!), GW2 (quit shortly after hitting 80), Smash Bros, all the Nintendo franchises, and lately, I've actually been pleasantly surprised by Garden Warfare.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Music
- Internet
- Games
- Family (do pets count? I think they count.)
- Rain
- My migraine meds
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music, and how awesome it would be to build a game and/or live a life worthy of an incredible soundtrack.

Art. Lately, I've been trying to dive into art/animation a bit more. I did a little bit back in college, but I've only recently gotten to the point where I'm actually doing commissions and trying weird new stuff. Honestly, I still think it's kind of ridiculous / shocking that people want to give me money for my scribbles. Kinda fun.

Game dev. I make casual web and mobile games, which brings in a good chunk of income and helps me find reliable contacts. It's a fun little gig: low pressure, work on my own timeline. Last year it made about half as much as my 'real' job. This year, I'd like to match or beat it. Getting to the point where I can quit the dayjob and work on games full time is a big life goal for me. :D

Stories. Right now, most of the games I built are very mechanic-oriented: I find something that's fun to do, and I build a game around it. Ultimately, I think that's the most important part of making a game. But at least once in my life, I want to build a game that also has a story, and when I'm at a place where I can finally do that, I want to have that story ready. Which usually leads to...

Politics / social issues. I lean left on most political and social issues, but I tend to dislike extremes in either direction. I think that "joining a side" on any divisive issue is one of the easiest ways to make sure you never learn, grow, or bring any real change to the world, because you're constantly stuck in an unhealthy "us vs. them" mentality. The only labels I'm really comfortable using for myself are "humanist" and "egalitarian". Everything else comes with way too much baggage, even if they stand for some worthy causes.

In almost all cases, I believe that both sides are anywhere from partly to mostly wrong and/or overzealous, and that both sides also have tiny bits of truth/wisdom in them which are often ignored or blown out of proportion by both the people who wield them like weapons and the people who oppose them.

I prefer to deal with scenarios one by one. It's easy to confuse this for non-confrontationalism, and I suppose that could be a small part of it. But I can assure you, I am proactively centrist / divided on most issues, with a bit of a left lean. (Lest we forget, you are speaking to a bisexual agnostic from the internet. :P)

If I don't have an opinion on an issue or I am not informed enough to make one, I'm quick to admit it. But I don't default to one side or the other until I've actually familiarized myself with the issue.

Science, the world, the weirdness of the human brain/body/behavior, and spirituality. I'm a huge sucker for topics like immortality, transhumanism, the applications of the Theseus paradox to the human body/brain, and all sorts of geeky shit like that. Then I usually end up frying my own brain and just resort to gaming.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends! Some weekends I tag along with friends to a bar so I can get out of the house. Other nights, I just chill at home and stay up late playing video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One of my hobbies is very weird. It's legal, ethical, lucrative, and I feel like it's morally sound, but it's also very taboo and admittedly quite strange. Feel free to ask about it up front, I just don't like posting it out in the open.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You collect GIFs of cats waggling their tongues seductively, and want to swap. I'm up to eight.

- You enjoy gaming and other hobbies, but also like to go out and be social occasionally. Quiet pubs, game nights, movies and dinner with friends.

- You're good at coming up with things to talk about!

- The abbreviations FA and E6 mean anything to you.

- You're quiet/secretive and would like someone you can be open/honest with.

- You're worried you might be too weird. Try me.

- You enjoy sex, but are looking for more than just sex.

- (Guys) You're a bottom or a bottom-leaning switch.

- You prefer closed relationships / loyalty.

- You're independent and enjoy the person you are, but you also like the idea of having someone by your side.

Or just message me anyway! What's the worst that could happen? Even if we don't click, I still like meeting and talking to new people. :D

Look, I've even provided icebreakers:

- Send me a song you've really been enjoying lately, and I'll send you one of mine!

- What's something you've been dying to talk about, but haven't had a good opportunity to bring up?

- When/if you play fantasy-setting games, what class do you normally play?

- There are three 4-letter words in the English language that end in the same 3 letters, but do not rhyme. The first letters of the three words are T _ _ _, C _ _ _, and B _ _ _. What are the three words? This is not a trick question; there is a real answer.
