My self-summary
Yep. Just what in the world to write to come across as interesting while at the same time not looking like a completely self-absorbed knob? Beats me, as I normally find out about people through conversation as opposed to a few lines of text on a website, but I suppose you have to start somewhere. ;)

I just recently moved to Mishawaka (February 2014), although I was born and raised on the northwest side of Chicago and spent the last eight years living in Mesa, AZ.

I'm not the sort of person who's overly comfortable tooting my own horn so I had some of my friends try to sum up something about me in one word or phase, good or bad; have known me over thirty years, others I've met more recently, while others had never met me in person but have followed some of the websites I have (or had). Hell, even a couple I'd dated over the years. So here's what they had to say:

Intelligent; Quaiattini (I had to look that one up – hahahaha!); Genuine; Insightful; Baseball; Cubbie; Friend; Prank; Entertaining; Competitive; Headstrong; Honorable; Witty; Well Spoken; Good Kisser; Sweet; Hilariously Sarcastic; Cuddly; Onion (I had to get a bit of clarification of that one seeing it came from my best friend. His reply: “Layers my friend, layers.”); Caring; Savvy; Loyal

I normally spend about half of the month away from home delivering vehicles all across the country; I enjoy meeting folks all over the US and get to see plenty of the sites. Since I'm self employed, I make my own schedule and luckily don't have a boss hovering over my head. I also spend quite a bit of free time working on my website (thegaminggang.com) so I travel to a lot of conventions, conduct interviews, catch a lot of things before the public sees them (like movies, games, comics, etc) and games before they hit the public. I usually host board gaming events at various pubs wherever I might live as a way to introduce a whole world of fun they have no idea exists; when you mention a board game to most people the first things that pop into their heads are usually Monopoly or Risk and those are certainly not the sort of games I cover.

Even though I may be kind of a big kid at heart, that doesn't mean I fluff off on the responsibilities of life. I just happen to be a very social person and like to have fun with friends.

I'm a pretty open and honest sort while I think I'm well grounded in reality for the most part. I consider myself a man and not a guy. There are quite a few boys in the world masquerading as men and that's just not my style. Not to say I'm going to judge other people on how they go about life but some lines from the classic 80's flick 'Say Anything' which stayed with me since I first saw the movie years ago:

D.C.: Lloyd, why do you have to be like this?
Lloyd: 'Cause I'm a guy. I have pride.
Corey: You're not a guy.
Lloyd: I am.
Corey: No. The world is full of guys. Be a man. Don't be a guy.

What more to say?

I guess my hobbies drop me into that "geek" crowd and, although I have no problem with being part of it, I'm simply not a fan of the word "geek". Hey, maybe it's just me but when I hear the word I always think about the guy who's supposed to be biting off a chicken's head in the freak show...

Not to sound like all I do is work and play games, I love to kick back with a good book (or multitask with an audiobook on the old mp3 player), dig movies of all kinds, hanging out to grab a bite and a brew, and kicking it getting to know people. Some think the art of conversation is dead but I don't; granted there are a few folks out there who think a conversation is just sitting there waiting for someone else to stop talking so they can say something but I still remember it's all about listening and engaging in a bit of verbal back and forth.

Makes me a little old school I suppose?

Since I'd rather not have this intro run novella length, at least I've tossed out a bit about me so I welcome anyone who'd like to say hello to send me a "Howdy." I can't say I'm expecting to find some sort of true love online but I would like to meet new people and friends. I can say I'm a relatively normal person, fairly interesting to get to know, and at least capable of providing a laugh or three.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a self employed licensed and bonded transporter. I also spend time running my website.
I’m really good at
There are a few things I'd consider myself pretty good at but I believe I'm not a bad journalist. Granted I'd say this profile may not be a great example of that...

Plus I'm quick with a joke or to light up your smoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really do look like my photos... Seriously. Not saying that's a good or bad thing but at least it's legit. Something else that comes across is I say what's on my mind. Of course, I just don't randomly blurt anything at random, and have tact, but I'm not one for wasting people's time by bs'ing them since there really isn't much purpose in that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All in all really wide ranging...

Movies: Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Doctor Strangelove, just to toss a few out there. Yes, I do watch movies that are in color though too... I'd say my movie collection is somewhere around 350-400 or so.

TV: Mad Men, The Walking Dead, a lot of BBC shows (The IT Crowd is classic!) - I know everyone says it but I really don't watch a whole lot of TV. Normally if the TV is on, I've got some sort of documentary or indie flick streaming on Netflix. I have to say I avoid reality TV like the plague and people who are reality TV junkies like a bigger plague.

Music: U2, Bruce Springsteen, Aimee Mann, Tori Amos, Wye Oak, Rush (don't bust my chops about Rush... Go see them live and we'll talk...); just about anything from someone who probably won't shoot me after the concert.

Books: Yikes! There's loads so don't even know where to start! I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I'm in the midst of doing something else. I tend to reread Stephen King's On Writing from time to time just to get some imaginative juices flowing and always bust out a little H.P. Lovecraft when I'm in the mood for some classic horror.

Food: Anything that wouldn't eat me first.
The six things I could never do without
The internet
A good book or three
A cold beer on a hot day
Good friends
Baseball
An interesting game to play
A challenge

Hey you got seven, so there's a bonus one tossed in there!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A boatload of things - I have one of those minds that can move a mile a minute so there's always something cooking in my head. Not that I'm flighty at all but I'm not much for blanking or zoning out...
On a typical Friday night I am
Not too many Friday nights are typical. But if anything, I'd probably be hanging out trying out a new game of some sort to write about on my website or just kicking back chatting with people over a drink.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hey! That's cheating! I'm very upfront so if someone has the nerve to ask me something I'll give it to them straight. But you have to ask... :)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
I'd say send along a message if you're interested in meeting a relatively normal, gainfully employed man with a healthy dose of self esteem who isn't looking simply to knock boots or whisk you down the wedding aisle. Plus, as an added bonus, I'm usually good for a chuckle. ;)
