My self-summary
Hello, OkCupid. I'm Sean. I'm originally from Florida. I love it here in Colorado and am happy to finally live here, but being so new, now I just need to meets me some peoples!

INTJ, whatever that's worth.

Little about myself...I have a pretty dry sense of humor...if you know what the Perry Bible Fellowship is, YES. Pretty often I find myself laughing at things while everyone else gives me odd looks. I like bikes in general and I tinker around every once in a while, I restored a 70s Schwinn not too long ago which is now my go-to cruiser for riding around town. I'd like to think I'm a pretty considerate, gentlemanly person, and try to do little things for people to show I care (believe this is the receiving gifts/acts of service 'love language', ha). Love a good beer, I tend to stick to the IPA range - the hoppier, the better. I try to stay informed and updated about the world around me. As I get older I'm trying more to understand why people think the way they do as opposed to bolstering my own notions and worldview. So, reading is important to me and is something I enjoy sharing with companions. I have a love-hate relationship with politics...I love staying up to date and talking politics, but the dumbing down of politics is getting frustrating. I like people-watching and wondering what types of lives other people lead. I don't really care for the term 'Atheist', as it has a lot of negative connotation - but, I am Atheist/Agnostic, non-religious, whatever you want to call it, I'm that.

As a side note, if you have a pixie haircut/tattoos/septum piercing/bangs/dark hair and dark eyes/red hair/bright red lipstick, be warned, I might fall in love with you based solely on a picture. Silly? Yes.
What I’m doing with my life
Wellp, I'm sorta in a weird spot these days, but I'm just trying to go with it. I graduated with my first bachelor's in Political Science in 2007 and did the whole ROTC deal, so I was a commissioned Air Force officer after I graduated and did that for about 5 years. I was stationed in California and up in Cheyenne, WY, hence falling in love with Fort Collins. I got out of the military in March of '12, took some time off (Europe by myself for a month, woo), and looked for a new job for a while. That didn't pan out, so I decided to go back to school for a second bachelor's in Construction Management at CSU. It'll be about a year and half before I graduate, but at least I know I'll have a decent job afterwards. Interned as a Project Engineer at a construction company in Denver this summer. I'm trying really hard to live the axiom that you make your own happiness, but I think mostly I just end up browsing Reddit.

Other than that, I mountain bike; I just impulse-bought a Sony compact DSLR, so I'm dabbling in photography (like, really, dabbling); I like to read and am trying to hit 45 books this year (update - only 33 in 2013, shooting for 40 in 2014); I'm trying to do more stuff outdoors this summer. Camping, Bike-camping (bikepacking?), rafting, etc.
I’m really good at
Galaga. I have the high score at Pinball Jones, for the time being. But, ehhh...probably not really good at any one thing...more of a random smattering of things I can get by at. Pretty good at mountain biking and snow biking. Saxophone. Ping pong. Boggle. Spelling/grammar (impressive, I know). Losing sunglasses. Photoshop. Singing in a mean falsetto (Seriously). Whistling. Back scratches. Working out like a fiend for two months then abruptly stopping (update: I've now hit three months and show no signs of stopping, I'm totally on my way to a slightly-less-flabby body, woo! update 2: I have indeed kept at it, I've lost around 20 pounds since my profile picture was taken, alas, I have no good replacement photos. Trust?). Wasting time on the internet. Knowing random fun facts. Sleeping in.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people don't advertise that...so...couldn't say. Although lately, probably my haggard facial hair, which I am determined on growing for the time being regardless. Update: Sadly, I have found that my genes have let me down in the beard department, unless you like the lopsided Amish chin beard look. Sad bear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books on the Iraq/Afghanistan wars - Fiasco, Cobra II, Imperial Life in the Emerald City; Books on the financial crisis - The Price of Inequality, Confidence Men, Two Trillion Dollar Meltdown, End This Depression Now, etc. Books on popular science, philosophy, sociology, psychology, religion, humanism, politics, etc. - Jon Ronson, Sam Harris, Dawkins; and of course some fiction as entertainment too - Dan Simmons, Stephen King, Scott Smith. Malcolm Gladwell is pretty interesting. Cloud Atlas was SOLID. I'm trying to read more books than I did last year, but I have to read more fiction than I normally do to hit that, I think...33 is the number to beat, 40 is the goal. Currently reading Guns, Germs, and Steel, Night Film, and The End of Growth.

Music...quite a mix - my favorite bands right now are Active Child and M83...also, Lamb of God, Miss May I, Yelle, Capital Cities, The Sounds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, Kavinsky, CSS, Miami Horror, College, Holy Ghost! I like music that sounds like it's from the 80s, but isn't. Soooo, lots of synthesizers, ha.

Movies...kind of have an affinity for cheesy action/horror, but I also enjoy a good drama. The Thing, Event Horizon, and Drive come to mind as all-time favorites. I have a ridiculous man-crush on Ryan Gosling. I do watch the Tomatometer closely when I'm figuring out what movies to watch. I used to not watch any TV, but with Hulu/Netflix: Parks & Rec (Ron Swanson is my hero and I am considering starting a FSM-style religion), Colbert Report/Daily Show, Arrested Development, Wildboyz, Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, 7 Minutes in Heaven, House of Cards, and nerdy science type shows with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and such.

Fudz - Give me all the bacon and eggs you have. But seriously, just about anything, although tacos, breakfast (I'm usually at Silver Grill at least once a weekend) and bbq are faves.
The six things I could never do without
Eh, you can always do without, but I like my mountain bike, phone, the interwebz, books, my brother/fambly, and the daily show/colbert report.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Zombie apocalypse? The wars in Iraq & Afghanistan...politics...religion...what I'm going to do in the near future. Why people think and act the way they do. My perceptions, why I think the way I do, and if I can challenge myself to think differently. What the people I see day in and day out are up to in their lives. What the weather is like today and other mundane things. What assignments I've missed because I don't usually go to class. And I'd be lying if I didn't include sex.

....boobs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ask your mother! HA! Sorry, that was inappropriate and unfunny.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private, no, interesting, maybe. I always have a pen, quarters, and a lighter on my person. I don't smoke. Ya never do know!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You can spell correctly, you recognize the difference between 'you're' and 'your', you don't have any duckface pictures, and you think we might get along. You're looking for frandz in Fort Collins.

And for the love of god, I never thought I'd have to include this. But please, please have more to say than 'hello'.

I feel like I'm starting out at a disadvantage here - let's get one thing straight. I am not automatically out to get in your pants. If we talk a bit, decide to hang out, and maybe even like each other, that's cool. If not, that's cool, too. Just being friends is a thing. Cheers!
