My self-summary
I'm a nerd. A card carrying, tattooed, punk rock playing, anime binging, ren faire attending, comic con wandering, sci/fi reading, video game playing, wrestling watching, star wars loving nerd.

I'm looking for someone with similar interests, for adventures, movies, traveling, dinners, random awesome dates, gaming, cuddling, netflix/hulu marathoning, the whole nine yards.

I'm a one woman guy as well. So no "open relationships", no games, just honesty.

I've spent a long time single, so I have a pretty good grasp of what I'm looking for in a relationship. I know long term doesn't happen over night, and taking it slow is no problem. Ideally someone who can become a best friend and partner in world saving.

I'd like to say I'm always laid back but, let's be honest. That's a lie. I have some anxiety and depression and shyness problems, but, I work really really hard to keep them under control. So, most of the time, I really am low-key and laid back. I am, quite possibly, the most generous guy you could meet, and I'd do anything for the ones I care about. Once I open up, though, it's kind of hard to shut me up ha-ha.

I'm prone to spontaneous gestures of affection and adventure, and if we get to the point of a relationship, I'm super honest (it's very important to me), loyal and attentive.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at Amazon as a problem solver (such an epic job title). It's pretty cool having weekends off now. It's not a bad job at all, but, I'd love a job in animal rescue.
I’m really good at
I'm a damn good singer, and a passable guitar player.

I'm a dog whisperer...

I'm also good at making people smile, especially when they truly need it. It's a gift.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, they are usually the first thing people compliment. They are kind of a unique color. Other than that, I have a real quirky sense of humor. Also, when I first meet someone, I'm usually pretty shy. This could mean I don't say much (although I'm 100% paying attention to everything you say/do), or, I'll start spewing random word vomit to try and make you laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This part is very long, and for that I apologize:

1. BOOKS
----------
Chances are, if it's sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural type stuff, I'm going to like it. Let's just stick with that, otherwise, I'll leave a big list here.
Fine... Here are some: Dresden Files, Sandman Slim, Odd Thomas, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Iron Druid etc etc etc.

Tons and tons of different comics.

2. MOVIES
-----------
To be totally honest, there are too many movies that I love to list them all, but, I'll put a few of the top that come to mind... Princess Bride, Zombieland, Sin City, Boondock Saints, Walk Hard, Lord of the Rings (all of them), Die Hard (all of them), Star Wars (all of them), Grandmas Boy, Lucky Number Slevin, Ghostbusters (both of them), Back to the Future (all of them), Scott Pilgrim, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, All the Marvel movies, Mad Max, I'm a huge DreamWorks and Disney fan as well... I could go on and on and probably will if you let me.

3. MUSIC
---------
Had to shorten this part... so, here are my top 15 (i break the rules when it comes to list-limits):
Authority Zero, Rise Against, Less Than Jake, NoFX, Reel Big Fish, Bad Religion, Millencolin, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Offspring, Pulley, Strung Out, Sum 41, Zebrahead, Alkaline Trio, Streetlight Manifesto.

I listen to mostly punk rock as you can tell. But, there is some other stuff I like too, nerdcore rap, classic rock, blues, etc.

4. TV
-------
There are a TON of shows that I enjoy, I'll just list shows that are still going on though. Again, if it's nerdy, I'll probably like it, but right now: Archer, South Park, Bobs Burgers, Sons of Anarchy, Walking Dead, Psych, Big Bang Theory (I'm so much like Leonard it's ridiculous at times), Agents of SHIELD, Community, Modern Family (Phil is another awesome representation of me), Family Guy, American Dad, the Cleveland Show, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, Arrow, Brooklyn 99, Flash, Daredevil...ummm, and a ton of random shows on netflix, like Firefly... love me some Firefly.

5. FOOD
---------
mexican, italian, american.... I like to say I'm not very particular on the type of food that I eat, but, I CAN be really picky lol, but, I'll go anywhere, I'll find something to eat no matter where I go.

All in all, I'm not afraid to give anything a shot, movie, tv show, band, food, if I don't like it, no big deal, at least I experienced it.
The six things I could never do without
1. Music/My guitar
2. My friends
3. Movies
4. Animals
5. My Computer/Phone
6. Humor... and love... my life would never be complete without them, and I know it said 6 things... but, I don't always follow the rules lol.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In an effort to keep this thing from being too long, let's just say at any given moment, my mind is thinking about approximately 83461064t1098345 things at the same time.... yes, there is a t in that number... It's supposed to be there to show the absurdity of the amount of things I am thinking about. If you want to know, just ask, hell, it could start a pretty awesome conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
I actually have weekends off now for the first time in... shit, a million years it seems like.

Friday, Ill most likely be winding down from a long week of work. You could see me out and about though, especially since I've just moved to Fort Worth and friends there want me to see what all the city has to offer.

I'm almost always doing karaoke on Sunday at the Taphouse in Ft Worth. You should go. It's fun. We do theme nights and all kinds of stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't keep secrets about myself really, so, in all honesty, I'd tell you whatever you really wanted to know about... this can be kind of off putting for some people lol, they don't expect me to be so direct about my life. The way I see it, the things I've gone through have made me who I am, so why hide it. I try to live life with as few regrets as possible.

I mean, if you have skeletons in your closet, they will tend to haunt you at the worst possible times, so, you might as well open the door and have conversations and joke around about them.

But, just for the sake of the site: I have a few guilty pleasure bands... Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and Panic at the Disco... Damn, I just lost all my punk rock cred... good thing I don't care about that sort of thing... What can I say? Their shit is catchy.

P.S. If I like you. I'm going to act like I like you. None of that alpha male, shaming bullshit. I'll enjoy talking to you and probably want to do it at length.
You should message me if
Any of this sounds interesting. You'll be glad you did, I'm pretty damn awesome.

Especially if you play video games or have a nerdy side that you embrace (or even want to embrace) with no regrets. I would love to find a partner for Ren Faire adventures and cosplaying at conventions.

You want to go to awesome concerts with me.

I respond to 99% of the messages I get fyi, so don't be shy.
