My self-summary
I'm a guy that's moved back to MA from RI a few years ago and looking to meet people. I'm one of those guys that's a little quiet at first, but once I open up, I'll talk to you like I've known you for years. Personality-wise, I tend to have a somewhat snarky sense of humor and love to make someone laugh with an odd comment or well-placed zinger. On the inside, I'm just a big teddy bear at heart. I believe in trust, honesty, loyalty, and love. These are not words, but concepts I hold dear. I'm definitely a gamer hobby-wise and utterly love to engage in a board, card, or computer game. I love the interactivity, social and critical thought aspects of them. I'm a bit of a homebody, but slowly working on getting out more and more. Definitely an introvert.

Professionally, I work as a QA Engineer at a company that makes mobile software and enjoy what I do. I'm not looking for someone to support me nor am I looking for someone that wants me to support her. I also do not live my life around my work. Once I'm home, barring an emergency, work stays at work. I think it's important to have a good work-life balance.

My ideal match would also enjoy board/card/video games (or at least give them a chance). They'd teach me about things they're passionate about. They'd be someone caring and loving, but with a twinkle of mischief in their eyes. They'd be happy going out or staying in with a movie. They'd have a good sense of humor, yet be ready to shoot me "the look" when one of my attempts at a joke fails (they can't all be winners!). Overall, someone that's looking to start at a friendship and just see where things lead.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a QA Engineer at a mobile software company. I help test new applications we make for other companies. I've worked in QA for about 6 years now. Ideally, in the next five years, I'll buy a condo or house, find someone and hopefully get married. Maybe even have a child or adopt.

Additionally, I've been working on improving myself. I've been trying to eat better and been working to expand my social circle and break out of my little Introvert self a bit (thus one of the reasons I'm here!). Baby steps, but think both things will pay off ultimately.

I've also been getting into tattoos. I've got 3 in the past 3 years and want another.
I’m really good at
Remembering weird bits of trivia and random lines from movies. *shrug* My gift and my curse. lol

I also am a good listener and (I'd like to think) give good advice. That said, I probably should take my own more often.

I'm good a making people smile and laugh, even if it means making a bit of a fool out of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, I think.
Other guesses would be my glasses, my cane (yes, I use one getting around for now), or my facial hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Dilbert Management books (I know...I know...)
Movies: The Sting, The Star Wars Trilogy, The Avengers, Howl's Moving Castle, V for Vendetta, Fifth Element, and so many more.
Shows: Burn Notice, ATHF, Mythbusters, Psych, Chopped, Restaurant Impossible, South Park
Music: Everything from dubstep to metal to jazz and blues, except country (Cash Excluded)
Food: Italian, Pizza, a good burger, Filet Mignon, Ice Cream
The six things I could never do without
My Friends & Family
The Internet
Good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All kinds of things, from the next sarcastic one-liner I'm going to throw out there to politics and everything in between.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, home relaxing after work or out with friends doing something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like being stuck in traffic in tunnels. I know it's safe, but still freaks me out a little. I'm a cancer survivor. I'm an amputee (lower left leg) and walk with a cool prosthetic. I hate butterscotch and coconut. I once caught a fish after tying a worm on a hook (I was young and didn't want to stab it). I managed to dislocate a knee playing mini-golf (you can't teach that level of talent). I have friends online that are closer to me than some nearby friends.

I'm honestly a pretty open book, though, so there's only a handful of things I keep really private. Want to know what they are? Get to know me and maybe I'll share.
You should message me if
- You have a good sense of humor, hopefully sarcastic.
- You are ACTUALLY LOOKING TO DATE/BE FRIENDS. For some reason, people join these sites not wanting either and I don't get it.
- You like gaming (NOT GAMES). I'm talking Video, Board, Card, etc. If you like head games, don't bother.
- You are looking for a nice, honest guy.

You should NOT message me if:
- You're not actually interested in talking to me. I WILL write back to you.
- You're going to write me single word responses or a sentence fragment as the entire response.
- You don't dig big guys. I am. I'm working on it, but I'm not going to drop to 180 overnight, so if you're looking for a cut guy, look elsewhere.
