My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow...I keep hearing horrific stories about how disgusting, pushy, degrading or just generally socially inept most guys are on online dating sites. Ladies, I know you have to deal with that shit more than enough in real life, and that it's a million times worse on here. It appalls me that we live in the 21st century, and yet 99% of the men still completely suck, and can't tell the difference between confidence and being an asshole. On behalf of my gender, I am truly sorry. Not all of us are total dickheads, and hopefully the rest of us figure it out soon.

DISCLAIMER: As if my profile wasn't long enough to begin with...I'm pretty much over online dating and almost over dating in general. I have a bunch of things in my life that are in dire need of attention, and dating is not exactly on the front burner for me right now. I'm keeping my profile up in the off chance there is someone out there who is really REALLY cool with that. The strongest relationships are built when you grow together, right?
Now back to your regularly scheduled program

Greetings! Hark, and take heed! For beneath this admittedly unimaginitive handle lies intrigue and excitement most profound! If I have caught your attention, I implore you, then, to venture forth...

So what am I looking for, you ask? Well, I do have this weird fantasy of meeting someone I could have the chemistry to fall totally crazy in love with, and realistically spend the rest of my life with. Crazy I know, but I want to be a good compliment to someone else...not looking for my other half, but looking for another (mostly) whole, so we can support each other and encourage each other to grow individually as well as together as we grow old. Not settling for someone just because they look or dress or fuck a certain way, and not looking for a laundry list of prerequisites. Maintaining the romance and passion through dedication, working through all of our problems together as a team, understanding that life has its ups and downs, the punches you've got to roll with, and not expecting just our love to carry us the whole way to that fantastical "happily ever after," but to have that feeling make the journey, the struggles, the victories that much sweeter...that's what I want. I'm done with hookup culture and being in a relationship until something better comes along. I want that FUCK YES feeling, and I want to work to make it last as long as possible.

I'm going to break the norm here and start with the fact that I am NOT an easy going person. I'm passionate, hyperactive, and multi-demensional. I can be very goofy and a bit brash sometimes, borderline Monty Python silly ("dork" is a common adjective for me) but I can still wax poetic, and throw down some deep philosophical thought too, while still being laced with the word "motherfucker" and all other manner of vulgarities.

I've been described as straight but not narrow. I am empathetic, humanistic, very in tune with my emotions, and comfortable with expressing how I feel. I also joke about sexuality a lot. If you're anti-LGBT or anti-women's rights in any way, we will definitely NOT get along.

I am just as comfortable in a suit and tie as I am in a pair of torn up jeans and an oil-stained tee shirt. I'm also goddamn polite- I hold doors for people, say please and thank you, and I chew with my mouth closed.

In a nutshell, I'm fucking weird, but I'm pretty awesome.

Not even remotely interested in sports. Auto racing is the only event I would willingly go to, and you would have to bribe me (heavily) with good food/drink to make me go to anything else. If sports are an irreplaceable part of your life, I'm going to assume that you have little to no personality, and basic as fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...

I have a fundamental belief in enjoying the good stuff. I seem to have a complete inability to enjoy half assed or brain dead indulgences. I admit that does make me sound like a snob or, dare I say, slightly neckbeard-y, but truthfully, drinking Bud or shooting JD for the purposes of getting loaded or social lubricant is not appealing to me at all. If I'm drinking, I want to enjoy myself while I do it; as such, I'm a dyed in the wool beer/whiskey/tequila/coffee nerd, and I know more about it and sampled more exotic styles than most of the people out there. Probably including you. Unless you're Tomme Arthur. Are you Tomme Arthur? If so, come love me you magnificent bastard.

While were on the subject of nerds, I happened to be a gigantic one, in case that wasn't bludgeon-you-over-the-head-with-my-plus-two-mace obvious. I watch anime and play video games, and can work my way around many a tech gadget, but I'm definitely not the kind to sit alone in the dark on a Saturday with nothing but a screen and Mountain Dew for company. Hello? McFly? There is such a thing as "having a life" and "going outside" after all!

Side note: Tom aka BusinessThor is my very good friend and room mate. If you decide to or end up messaging both of us, please do us the courtesy of choosing one of us and sticking with it!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Thinking a lot about the bigger picture, and pursuing my goals of leading a happy, healthy and personally gratifying life through constant striving to better myself, critical thinking, and consciously developing and adhering to my own principals.
I've begun running, doing yoga and eating healthier every day, which has helped a lot, and I continue to push the envelope by seeking out and learning new things on a daily basis.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing guitar and cooking. Better at the first than the second, but I have a few aces up my sleeve...they usually involve dishes that make you gain weight just by looking at them, but I am working on cooking healthier stuff...
Also being generally handy, mechanically inclined and good at solving problems. Also, never challenge me in Tetris. Ever. You will lose. No, I won't let you win.

Enduring cold temperatures and pain! Hurt me more!

Properly holding different types of glasses and table manners in general (you would think this is a given, but it seems etiquette and good grooming are rare qualities these days!)

I tend to come up with offbeat, witty-ish mantras that serve me quite well. Examples like, "life is too short to drink shitty booze" and "I'll try anything twice" remind me to stay open minded, even in the face of pain or discomfort, and to aim HIGH. Not everything is what it seems on the first go around, and sometimes it takes two or three passes before you "get it" (IPA drinkers will understand!)

I can also do a lot of different kinds of voices and accents. (Profile secret! Tell me what you would want as a superpower, and why!) Some of them have evolved into full blown characters. You'll have to meet me in person to witness those!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I'm not wearing any pants.

Then usually how tall I am, my eyes, and my striking metrosexual good looks ....OK, the height and the eyes...

After I introduce myself, it's hard not to notice that I happen to have the same name as a rather popular Irish whiskey, and every knuckle dragger and mouth breather asks me the obvious question of whether or not I drink it (I have but it's not my favorite.) I've also only encountered two other Jamison's in my entire life...and one was a girl.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some of my favorite books are Farenheit 451, Kitchen Confidential, The God Delusion, How to Win Friends and Influence People, and 1984...I want to read more Ayn Rand sometime soon. Also, love me some Palanhiuk and Sedaris.

For TV, I cut the cable years ago, so I mostly use Netflix and Hulu. I love Cosmos, Mythbusters, Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who, Twin Peaks, Good Eats, Breaking Bad, anything with Anthony Bourdain, Futurama, Firefly, Dexter, Workaholics, and a few animes (Trigun, Desert Punk, Cowboy Bebop, etc.) I also love some YouTube shows like Game Grumps, My Drunk Kitchen, Tested, AVGN, JonTron, and Continue? Can't stand reality shows at all...again, I just can't do brain dead entertainment.

Movies....Honestly? Back to the Future is the best movie ever made. If you don't agree, I will fight you. Princess Bride is a close second.
I also love love love zombie movies (ask me about my zombie plan!) the Blood and Ice Cream movies (Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead and The Worlds End...notice how they are always some reference to Cornetto ice cream cones??) anything from Joss Whedon, Stanley Kubrick or Quentin Tarantino; Scott Pilgrim, and Jaws are also favorites.

Music...is a tough question. While I certainly have my favs, it truly depends on the day and my mood. I usually prefer hard or classic rock, especially 70's arena rock bands like Journey, Rush, Boston, Kansas, Van Halen, etc. (I'm a sucker for a good hook!) I've been getting into stoner/doom bands like Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats, The Sword, Scorpion Child and Graveyard lately, although I do like hip hop and EDM as well. Early Metallica will always have a soft spot in my heart (everything after The Black Album was garbage) and I do like various forms of metal, although it's usually not a go-to for me. I actually have some favorite classical composers as well, such as Vivaldi and Gershwin...I'll even throw some jazz on sometimes if the mood strikes. The only genres of music I can truly say I have distaste for are modern country (celebrating being a moronic redneck is not okay!) polka, mariachi and Indian pop music. I have my desert island albums for sure, but other than that I listen to pretty much anything. However, while I am not opposed to others liking different types of music, I will go on record for saying that if you dislike The Beatles and/or Queen, I will assume you are suffering major grey matter malfunctions, and report you to the nearest mental health facility. And no, liking the Stones is not a sufficient excuse

Food...I LOVE food. You will automatically become my best friend if you cook/give me food. I was born in California so naturally I love Mexican food. As I mentioned before, I'm a huge beer, spirits and coffee geek, so I love imperial stouts, anything barrel aged, sours, wild ales, Islay scotches (especially Lagavulin) bourbon, rye, añejo and extra añejo tequila, and South American coffee. I think English and German food gets a bum rap, despite my appreciation for the elevated art forms of French cooking, and of course Italian is always good. I also love Indian and Thai food, and pho, sushi and ramen are never a bad idea! I enjoy cooking, and always like trying new things, so this is just the tip of the iceberg for me!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Star stuff
A musical instrument to tinker around with
The interwebs
Good peoples to be around
Chucks
Food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lots of different things....New designs or redesigns for houses or cars or guitars or some random thing that I've come across that is aesthetically or ergonomically offensive in it's current form (hey every artist has those "that's not how I would have done it" moments)

How conservatism is truly a cancer, perpetually getting in the way of human progress, and how religion has morphed from a coping mechanism for the uncertainty of life and reality combined with oral tradition, into a (thankfully, increasingly marginalized) source of irrational hatred, bigotry and ignorance.

If I ever feel like I'm overwhelmed or discouraged, I look back on the past and think of how far I've come, and how much I would like to look back on this moment and think the same thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Weekends are usually up in the air for me...It depends on what's going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am virtually incapable of flattery. To clarify, flattery is telling someone precisely what they already think about themselves. That, to me, is not a compliment. So when I say something nice about someone, I mean it.

Pixar movies make me cry. All of them. Without fail, even Wall-E (they made him too cute! :P) Up? I was absolutely beside myself the entire time. I guess I'm just a big softie inside....

I view a lack of even basic fashion sense as a sign of weakness. I'm not a fashionista, and I'm not obsessed with brands or labels, but I personally don't like logos plastered all over my person like I'm a walking billboard, and I know how to dress for my body.

I have Asperger's Syndrome and ADHD, and everyone tells me it doesn't seem like it when they first meet me in person. I've worked very hard to get to that point, and I'm rather proud of it. I'm not saying I'm perfect, but it's definitely something most people with ASD's (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) cannot claim.

I'm slightly pyromanaical.

I still write in cursive, and I get compliments on my handwriting.

I find ditziness and ignorance to be extremely irritating. If you find this to be cute or funny as a dominant personality trait, then I'm going to assume that either you're trying to manipulate people, or you're a goddamn idiot. Either way, we will NOT get along.

I have a huge obsession with eyewear, even though I don't need scripts myself. I love Oliver Peoples sunglasses, and I think Oakleys/wraparounds show a stark lack of fashion sense (see above.)

If I am saying something important, I really, REALLY don't like being interrupted.

And apparently I'm willing to admit a lot :P
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-If you actually read everything in this monster.

-If you're pro-LGBT and women's rights, or at least not anti. If you are anti, we will NOT get along, and I feel sorry for you for being on the wrong side of history.

-If your IQ is appreciably above room temperature.

Really, you MUST be smart, positive, fun (maybe even a little cheeseball) open minded, have a flair for the dramatic without the drama, communicative, and deep.

YOU SHOULD NOT MESSAGE ME IF: you have less than two pictures, or don't smile in any of them, only posting group pictures without saying where you are in the picture; if "reading" to you doesn't venture too far outside of Cosmo/People/supermarket tabloids, Harry Potter, 50 Shades of Gray or what you're required to do for school or work; if you have any kind of negative bias against people with mental disorders, especially the autistic spectrum; if you're a social conservative, or anti-LGBT/women's rights (seriously, why do you live in California???); If you're a fussy eater (dietary restrictions I can understand, but c'mon, I'm a huge foodie, so you've got to be able to keep up!) if you "tAlK lIeK dI$$$$" or don't know your basic "there/their/they're" (or mix up "patience/patients" or "peaked/piqued"!) At least try to write like you have a brain in your head, and act like your momma taught you some class.

Major brownie points if you are a beer/wine/liquor/coffee/food snob!
