I guess you could call me a bit of a pessimist by nature, which I express via a sarcastic/sardonic sense of humor. I try not to be mean-spirited about it to people's faces, though, and I'm always fast to apologize if I hurt or offend someone I care about.
I really need to get more recent pictures of myself, as well as pictures taken by other people. The most recent pic on here is a year old and in no way does justice to my current, nigh-Adonis-like physique.
I'm told I give great backrubs.
I am tall, nerdy, and loyal
I'm also pretty good at cooking, but I don't get to make complicated stuff very often. Baking is kind of my specialty--especially my chocolate chip cookies.

You're not into geeky stuff.
You don't mind someone with an unconventional view on the world.
You think a receding hairline is a sign of virility.
I messaged you first.
I didn't message you first.
You think the word "peculiar" is funny.
You think the word "peculiar" isn't funny per se, but just sort of...peculiar.
You want to challenge me. To step out of my comfort zone, NOT to a duel. You might not think I need to specify that. The dead ninjas in my closet say you'd be surprised. Or they would, were they alive.
Anything I've written here--or to you--has made you giggle, or made you curious.
