My self-summary
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I've been in the Seattle area for about a year now, and I am always looking for people to go exploring with. So if you want to do that, send me a message. If you want to find out more, read on.

Personally, I can be very shy, but once I get to know you, you'll find I am a very sassy person with a strong sarcastic streak, both when it comes to humor and how I complain. You will also find me to be fiercely loyal and giving to my friends. I also try to be there when I am needed, no matter what is involved, whether it is simply for a hug, a good meal while having someone to talk to, a late-night trip to the ER, or anything else.

I am also very passionate about what I do, and if you show any knowledge of the subject, I have an unfortunate tendency to keep talking about it far beyond the point I should stop. Conversely, I am generally extremely chill when it comes to pretty much anything else, and generally go with the flow, especially when it comes to spending free time. I've had a friend describe the dichotomy as "saving all the caring for when you need it," and I find that description rather apt.

If you put stock into the Myers-Brigg personality system, I am a INFJ.

I've found it useful to mention what I am looking for. First and foremost I am a looking for a friend. There does not need to be anything beyond that. In a dating relationship, I am looking for something substantial. I don't do hook-ups or flings. I want to get to know you and grow because of it for however long it lasts.
What I’m doing with my life
My life has two primary thrusts. Right now, the vast majority of my life is spent at work. I'm a software developer in the communication field working on one of those products that became a verb (three guess as to which ;) ). I love what what I do, and I am very passionate about it. I love knowing that what I am doing will change and improve the lives of millions (hopefully billions soon) of people around the world.

Right now work seems to be in a perpetual crunch which has eaten somewhat into my other major goal, which is helping others. I like to help charitable organizations, especially those that involve helping children, those affected by some sort of domestic violence, and/or both. In the past this has manifested itself in volunteer work such as teaching and counseling, but lately I've had to settle for helping via donations right now. I am hoping to get back into actively volunteering again soon.

Beyond that, I just try to have fun and go with the flow.
I’m really good at
I am really, really good with computers. I am a software developer, and I love what I do.

I am also pretty good at talking with people. I try to know at least a little bit about everything, so I can talk about almost any subject. I'm also just a good person to talk to; I am very happy to listen to all of my friends issues, and to help them if they need it.

I am also pretty good at cooking. I'm at the in-between point of following recipes and starting to make my own. I am a big fan of potlucks because they give me victims to experiment on, erm, I mean people to hang out with and lots of food.
The first things people usually notice about me
I act older than I am. This came out of necessity because I had to support myself for a large portion of my life, but it is pretty amusing as it leads to interesting conversations when people drastically overestimate my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Instead of listing a bunch of things, I'll paint with a hilariously large brush to make this section readable.

Books: I like to have at least two books going concurrently. I like to call them my "brain candy book" and my "brain food book". My brain candy book is something fun, usually some sort of fiction, generally in the fantasy and science fiction genre. The brain food books are all over the place. Some are technical books for work. Others encompass history, philosophy, politics, and so forth. I try to learn new things through reading, so I try to mix it up. You can find my Goodreads profile here: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/13055928-matthew-varley

Movies and TV: I don't tend to watch a lot of movies and TV, especially alone because I find my attention wanders. When I do watch though, I watch blockbusters, dramas, Disney, and things that make me laugh. Some specifics on the TV side: Game of Thrones, Dr. Who, West Wing, House of Cards, Top Gear, The Daily Show and the Colbert Report.

Musically: I am all over the board on this. I've found songs in every genre that I like and I am constantly befuddling my co-workers with my music choice. To pick some that I listen to more than others, I listen to a lot of classical and metal (especially at work).

Food: Everything. I love to cook, but my only rule is that I don't make the same thing twice (outside of steak, tacos, and sandwiches) because there are too many dishes out there not to keep trying more.
The six things I could never do without
Computer - This is my job, most of my entertainment, and my link to the greater world.

Kindle - I read a lot of books, and it is rare to spot me without my Kindle.

Friends - Friends are very important to me.

Phone - This is like my computer, but in my pocket!

Food - I enjoy exploring food I've never had before and places I've never been before. If you want to try a place out, I'm game!

Raspberries - They're so tasty.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people bother with trying to be anonymous on the internet. It doesn't work, which is why I just be honest (see my user name).
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on how exhausting the week was; I'm either relaxing with some friends at some bar or I am reading a good book.
