I'm a nice guy who has kept himself on the shelf for too long, but
am now ready to meet someone really special.
I've never done the online thing before, but I thought it might be
a good place to start and at the very least you and I will already
have an idea of what we are in for! :)
Here we go!
What I’m doing with my life
Finding balance. About 5 years ago, I realized that I hadn't really
done anything with my 20's, so I kicked things into high gear and
have had a pretty narrow focus on work and school. Now, I'm trying
to broaden my focus and plug back in to the world and life around
me. I'm still working and going to school, but I am making
concerts, camping, farmers markets, walks/hikes, good people, the
potential for travel and relationships much more of a priority.
I’m really good at
People watching (not in a creepy way).
Procrastinating - not proud of this one, but I can be quite
excellent at it!
Sympathizing and empathizing.
Gesturing while I talk.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not really sure - my rad eye gear maybe?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I know I live in a town that has a very high book
consumption rate, but I'm usually so burnt out on reading text
books that my reading attention span has shortened to that of WW
and Mercury articles. If pressed for a "favorite", I think I'd have
to say any Calvin and Hobbes.
Movies: I love a great movie. These are some of my all time favs:
Zero Effect, Pi, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Crash,
American Beauty, Lost in Translation, 8 1/2...
Shows: I used to live for a show called Homicide Life on the
Street, I can always laugh at/with Arrested Development, and I do
get guilty pleasure from Gordon Ramsay screaming at people.
Music: I gotta rock! Anything from classic rock to metal is on my
radar. There are times when I like to throw on a Beatles record
(yup, vinyl!), sometimes Incubus or Arctic Monkeys are in order,
and other times I like it very heavy.
Food: I used to be described as a human garbage disposal because I
used to eat whatever was put in front of me. I'd like to think that
that has changed :) Sushi is always a favorite, pizza from Italy
(most anything from Italy, really), and I do have a soft spot for
curry - although I'm a bit of wimp when it comes to spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Copy and paste
Chocolate chip cookies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. Sometimes I'm weary from the week and need to catch up on
some homebody time. Other times I'll be out with friends - little
food, little drink, and good conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will play air guitar when I think no one is looking.
You should message me if
You want to know more! There are so many things to talk about that
can't fit into a simple profile - and I don't want to give it all
away upfront... :)
