My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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, a secret artist/animator, and very much a night person. I have a steady career, a wonderful family, two cats, and a small mountain of student loans and medical debt.
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. One day, I'd love to make the transition into doing either of those things full time, but I want to take advantage of my steady dayjob long enough to finish paying down my student loans.

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, 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 and I sound older than I am.

After that, probably the fact that I am 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!
Probably the Kinsey 2 / bisexual thing.

I am ridiculously attracted to competence (in just about anything) and playful/flirty behavior.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–30
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
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're terrible at first messages / starting conversations. Poke me and I'll come up with something. ;D

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

- Sex isn't your primary motivation for being in a relationship, but you do still enjoy it, with the right partner.

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

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

- You acknowledge that there are very real social equality issues in the world, but you are still able to occasionally laugh at things in r/tumblrinaction, and you prefer to change the world with your day-to-day actions than with hashtag activism.

- 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?

- What's the stupidest / weirdest thing you're into? What fact about yourself do you think will be a dealbreaker? Once it's out of the way, the rest is easy peasy, right?

- 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.
