I'm a writer. I spend my time observing human nature, human
interaction, the flaws of humanity, and then make fun of it, in
truly cruel ways. Just joshing. I'm a novelist and a comic book
writer. Working studiously on creating books that don't end up
being coasters or fireplace kindling.
The next statement is for clarification, and not intended to sound
I'm an ex-member of Mensa. I say this because in the past, I've had
to suppress that rather integral part of my personality, in an
attempt to not alienate potential partners. That proved
problematic, and drove me, in a phrase, up the freaking wall.
There's nothing more stultifying than having to curb your nature,
to make someone else comfortable.
Ain't doing that anymore. So, best be prepared gentle souls, the
mad genius is come, and he's bringing all of his toys with him.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finally embraced my love of language and letters. Reclaimed my
artistic spirit, and embarked on a journey that all storytellers
must...to write. I'm also an avid and shameless comic book
maven/fan/nerd/________(insert preferred appellation). I'm
currently working on two passion projects, both writing and
illustrating, lots of gloriously grueling work, but I've never been

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I know this answer is trite and can be perceived as a cop out, but
I have so many favorites they are too numerous to list.
However, I've read King, Meyers, Ellison, Huges, Angelou, Miller,
Hemingway, Hammett, Chandler, and Rowling.
And although I've steeped myself in traditional literature, I
regularly devour more non-mainstream authors like Gaiman, Snyder,
Kirkman, Morrison, Bendis, Lemire, and Hickman. And if you know at
least two of those names I will marry you on the spot and supply
you with endless footrubs and small graham crackers covered in
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Either with my daughter, writing, or drawing, or reading. I'm not
one for drink or clubs. I does dig a very nice coffee house,

You're bright, fearless, curious, and can carry a conversation. And
are intelligent enough to look beyond surface and pre-conceived
beliefs on age and compatibility.
I don't want to be the man of anyone's dreams. Dreams are fleeting,
ephemeral things, that are made to dissolve in sunlight, and
disappear upon waking. I want to be the man next to you, poking you
with is elbow while you sleep. Blowing raspberries on your tummy,
holding you close on winter nights, or while watching a movie that
scares the poop out of you. I want to be the man that walks through
life with you, holding your hand, making you laugh, and arguing
about who's turn it is to take out the trash. Dream men are for
I'm not a man who likes to spend a lot of time on trivialities
(unless its a goofball conversation about how insane people can be,
or how many of the real housewives husbands need to invest in
divorces), and I sincerely hate wasting time, mine or anyone elses.

happy. Not necessarily in that order.
