Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a girlfriend and we have a good thing going. I'm only
looking for friends. Not that you were really interested in me.
But, I'm an interesting person to be friends with. So, you should
really consider that, as that's what I'm looking for.
My personality is changing pretty much all the time.
People come and people go and the few that stick around end up
being really good friends. I love reddit and most of my friends
have come from the local reddit group. If you enjoy reddit we will
probably get along.
I used to be a partier and a drinker. Now I can't drink much at
But, I'm back to going out with friends and having a
couple beers on a pretty regular basis.Still have absolutely
no tolerance though.... Back to not drinking
I fix computers for a living.I'll also gladly fix
computers for friends.
I'm an atheist and I'm pretty against organized religion in
general. However, I understand and see some value in having
something to believe and as long as a person doesn't feel that need
to convince me of their religion and it doesn't come up all the
time then I can usually get along with a person.
I'm always interested in meeting new people and learning how
interesting they are and why.
I'm extremely honest and very loyal. Sometimes to my detriment. I'm
fairly self-sacrificing when it comes to friendships/relationships.
If you're nice to me I'll go out of my way to do things for you. I
think in general I'm kind. I'm gentle. I'm very patient. I dated a
girl that repeatedly told me she thought I was too nice for her.
I've also been described as "emotionally available".
I'm a very accepting person, I think. I get behind the ideas of
feminists. I'm all about equality for women. However, I'm still
going to open doors for you and pay for most dates. I don't think
chivalry is at all in conflict with feminism. If I were gay and
taking dudes out, I'd do the same thing for them.
I will say however, that while I'm extremely accepting, I'll still
sometimes make jokes based on stereotypes, usually out of irony.
They're not things I actually believe. But, if we can't laugh at
these things how will we ever move from them being offensive to
funny archaic thoughts of the past. If I made a joke about the
world being flat you 1) wouldn't think I believed it and 2)
wouldn't get offended for the people of the world that might think
the world is flat. Why should it be that way with anything else?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure this one out right now...
Currently I'm doing Couch to 5k. (Again) And this time I'm chugging
along through it. Much less feeling like I'm going to die than the
last time I tried this. Also, hopefully not hurting myself outside
of my workout this time. This is definitely something I'm enjoying
and think that once I get to a point where my body is more
comfortable with more of it, I'll be doing it more than my 3 days a
Other than that, I'm working. I work 12:30-9 on Saturday and Sunday
and 2:30-11 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. This makes being
social really hard. If you have similar hours and think we'd get
along, I'm interested in being friends. :-) Even if we end up at a
waffle house one night having a weird conversation at 1 in the
morning, I'm interested in meeting new people on my schedule.
Thursdays and Fridays are my days off. Lately they've been full of
playing board games with friends. I'm into the eurostyle board
games and things you'll see on the TableTop show on YouTube.
Lately I've been looking for things to get me out of the house
more. I'm trying to get more comfortable with the outdoors and the
being dirty and uncomfortable that seems to come with it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Computers. Using them. Fixing them.
Problem Solving in general.
Listening. If you feel like talking I'll gladly shut my mouth and
let you. Sometimes I present things useful in response.
Napping! I consider napping my super power. I can do it almost any
time or place for almost any period and feel improved. You know
And cuddling. I've been told by a number of people lately that I'm
very good at cuddling :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My bald head probably...
Or my walk... if you see me from a distance first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm really bad at these things because I know what I like if you
ask me if I like it but if you ask me to just list things that I
like I can't remember them.
Books: I knocked out the first Song of Ice and Fire book a couple
episodes into the first season of Game of Thrones. I'm currently
reading those. I like the writing of Neil Gaiman. I keep going back
and reading a story or two of Fragile Things and then putting it
down to find and enjoy later. I also like humorous writing like
Hitchhiker's Guide and Terry Pratchett. Good Omen's is probably one
of the best books ever. There are very few books I don't enjoy, but
there are few that I find myself with the attention span and time
I have so many books on my ipad that sometimes I just scroll up and
down with my eyes closed and just poke one to read.
Movies: I don't really do your stupid funny movies. I don't really
like straight-out comedy movies. I don't find Will Ferrell or Jim
Carrey funny. The sort of comedy these guys do just don't amuse me.
I won't complain if someone wants to watch them, but I won't choose
to watch them myself.
I'm also not so much for gorey horror movies either.
I like dramas when I have the time to sit and watch them. I like
thriller sorts of movies, for instance, Shutter Island - I love the
way movies like that work. I love things that make me question
reality and my own sanity.
I love pretty much anything with Michael Cera in it. The type of
character he gets typecast as is the sort of person I feel I am
And Jason Segel. I love absolutely anything he does.
I absolutely love Garden State.
My favorite date movie ever is Nick and Norah's Infinite
I'm into comic book movies and the like as well.
I watch a lot more tv than movies as tv shows are smaller servings
of larger plots. I'll sit down and watch a marathon of tv shows on
my day off. I recently caught up on Fringe this way. Other shows I
How I Met Your Mother. I'll rewatch this series from beginning to
current with a new friend if they're up for it.
Big Bang Theory
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
South Park (I find I appreciate the topical references a lot more
now than when I was younger and paid no attention to world
Recently watched all of 30 Rock. It is rather excellent.
Suits! (I feel like I'm the only person who watches this show. I
devour it as soon as I can in fears that it'll be canceled)
Music: My music tastes are pretty eclectic. The only thing I don't
really listen to is Country. When I turn on the radio I listen to
an alternative or some top 40 station depending on my mood at the
time. When I'm wanting to keep my energy up and get things done I
usually throw on a pandora station based on Daft Punk or I dance
around the apartment to an LMFAO pandora station.
My favorite bands are Weezer, Incubus and a little Chicago band
called Lucky Boys Confusion.
I've been listening to ALOT of Mumford and Sons lately. I love the
way they sound and have been searching for other bands that sound
like them. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I'm looking for
a balanced sound with similar vocal tones. There's a St. Louis band
with some friends of mine in it called Great Isaac that sounds a
lot like them imo. If you like mumford you should check them
Lately in my car I've been listening to a lot of NPR. Also, I've
been known to listen to a lot of podcasts. Usually I'm listening to
the TWiT podcasts or the Frogpants podcasts. Lots of geeky things
like that. I listen to This American Life fairly regularly and
Freakonomics Radio almost religiously. Oh... and the Savage
Lovecast is my guilty pleasure podcast.
Food: I have a lot of annoying food allergies. I'm allergic to tree
nuts, which has me afraid of most baked goods. I'm allergic to
sesame, which pretty much rules out all asian food. I'm allergic to
Mango... which has become pretty popular in foods lately. Oh, and
of course shellfish. If I can convince myself that I'm safe eating
something, I'll probably like it and I'll probably love to eat more
of it. It's the first part that's usually the issue.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
An actual computer and internet access.
Autumn. I wish every season was fall....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How there are billions of other people out there... and they're all
somewhere in their own head probably as lost as I am in mine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting drug by friends out to do god knows what... usually
involves drinking. Sometimes I'm throwing deadly darts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm going to be super honest right now. I've had a rough
couple months. A friend committed suicide. I lost my job. I lost my
home in St. Louis. Now I'm in Nashville with some friends trying to
rebuild. I'm optimistic about life, but while I'd like someone to
date, I'm probably not someone you'd want to be dating right now...
but I'll let you make that decision I guess.
Update 4-26-13: Things are going much better now and my shit is
coming together. I /might/ be at a point where I'm not horrible to
Current: I've got my shit pretty much together now. Alright, life,
let's do this!
I'll answer any question for almost anyone. I'm a completely open
book. Actually... I'm like an audiobook someone left playing in a
room you walk into and you hear something random out of the middle
of it. Sometimes you're intrigued and sometimes you're just like
"WTF just happened?!"
I've spent the last year making a lot of new friends and trying to
get out of my shell. I'm just now starting to get to a point where
I like who I am and I like who I'm becoming. Sometimes I relapse
into who I was, but then get back in the right direction.
Everyone puts their family on their "six things they could never do
without" list. I didn't. I'm not close to my family. Except my
grandma. None of them live here. I'll go months without talking to
my immediate family. Grandma on the other hand worries when she
hasn't heard from me in a week. :-)
Also, I knit. I probably have a better grasp on it than most
people. I'm wanting to get more into this and do some more involved
projects. I get lazy though and projects go unfinished.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

You're into nice guys with beards...
