My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am awesome. Trust me.

And this is long, so hold on to your butts.

But seriusly, I'm not like other guys. I bet a lot of us say that but you be the judge. And I don't mean that in a try-hard, hipster kind of way. I can carry a deep conversation or a banal one and enjoy either as the situation calls for, but I usually prefer the former. I love quotes and philosophy. I feel like an old soul. Not as in yelling at kids to get off my lawn and turn down their "music", but in that I think long term and not always for my own selfish interests; I am a big picture person and not the me, here, now kind that is so common. It makes me kind of cynical but I try to maintain a cautious optimism. And I am more fun than this making me sound, just keeping it real.

I believe that humor is crucial to happiness. It is one of humanity's saving graces. I like all jokes and anything else that makes me laugh. Even puns. Especially puns. The cornier the better. I am always trying to cultivate laughter be it with or at me. If laughter really is medicine then I must be a pharmacist (ba dum tsh!)

I like running and hiking, and for that reason I am loving this area! I do miss the Florida beaches though. I like to play tennis, but need a partner (hint hint). I like to read books but often get distracted by Wikapedia-ing something from said books, so the pace is slow. I love to cook. Especially for other people. Not having a kitchen makes that tough these days, but it has also made me a microwave wizard. I like all foods but barbecue is my favorite. I made it a point to stop at spots in St. Louis and Kansas City on my drive here from Florida. Where are the good barbecue joints around here anyways?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently in the navy (I know, just like a ton of other guys around here. There goes my claim to uniqueness right?), but didn't joint until I was 30. Got a psych degree first and tried living the private life for a good while but it was too greed driven. I like the navy; my job is pretty easy, but there is certainly sacrifice involved. The navy will probably be more of a stepping stone than a career, but it's hard to say at this point.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with people
Cooking
Cracking jokes
Driving. Definitely driving
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I look young for my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: Science, politics, and philosophy. Good fiction is always nice too. Some of my favorite authors are: Dostoyevsky, Chuck Palahniuk, Bill Bryson, Kurt Vonnegut, Jared Diamond, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Thomas Friedman.

MOVIES: Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Action, Sci-Fi. Here are some select titles: Moon, Office Space, Idiocracy, Waiting, Waking Life, Dogma, Mel Brooks, Wayne's Worlds, Rushmore (and other Wes Anderson films), 28 Days/Weeks Later, Interview with the Vampire, Gladiator, old M. Night Shyamalan films, The Matrix, Garden State, etc, etc.

SHOWS: PBS News Hour, The Daily Show (Jon Stewart is one of my heroes, so is Neil DeGrasse Tyson), The Colbert Report (it had a good run), The Simpsons (the 90's episodes), Modern Family, SVU (yup). Futurama. Top Gear (the British version). Arrested Development. Jeopardy. Breaking Bad. I watch sports socially, but I don't park in front of SportsCenter all day.

MUSIC: Music is important to me. Another one of humanity's saving graces. I think musical taste says a lot about a person. I'm mostly into indie but I like most music. Even country, though not the new "country" that is coming out. If there is one type of music that I don't like it's dubstep. Dubstep hurts my ears more than the jet engines I spend all day around. A few of my favorite artists are Radiohead, Wilco, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire. But also: Air, Billy Joel, Bobby Womack, Bon Iver, Bright Eyes, Cake, Daft Punk, Hundred Waters, My Morning Jacket, Nujabes, Phoenix, The Postal Service, The Roots, Rush, Spoon, Tom Petty, A Tribe Called Quest, TV On The Radio, Vampire Weekend, 311, and many many more...

GAMES: Mario Kart 64, Starcraft, Minesweeper. Pictionary, Scrabble, Monopoly, and I'm always down for a good game of spades. Tonk and Casino are also fun.

FOOD: BBQ. And everything else really.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Definitely humor
also Black coffee
Music.
A car, unfortunately
Money, again unfortunately

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no such thing as a typical Friday night. Now on an ideal Friday night I would just be having a good time doing whatever wherever with whomever.
