Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My Name is Aaron.
I'm a nerd, a geek, whatever word or label you want to use. I enjoy
Pop Culture and nerdy things such as Comics, Dungeons and Dragons,
Movies, Video Games, etc. But that isn't all there is to me. I'm a
dedicated person who strives to do what's he thinks is best. I'll
achieve any goal I set my mind to. Case in point; in 2011 I hit an
all time low (or High, depending on your point of view) of 420
pounds. Since February, I've started losing weight, and I have no
intentions of stopping until at least 250. As of now, I've whittled
it down to 288.
I'm unfathomably hopeful about the future. If I can do the above in
just over a year, you (whoever "you" are) can do anything.
Currently I work at a McDonalds, but as much as I enjoy my job (I
know, right?) I do truly look forward to moving beyond it. My
*dream* job is to own my own restaurant, dedicated to Americana and
Detroit Style Food - All freshly grilled.
I am straight edge. I am not better than you simply because of
this. I respect anyone's right to do to their body what they will,
however I cannot fathom the concept of willingly poisoning your
body and clouding your mind and judgement. I don't like the idea
that if the need arises, I can't make a clear-headed call because
I'd been boozing it up a moment earlier. I prefer to keep my clear
head because of this, and since then I've been the designated
Responsible one of my friends.
I am a Christian Liberal. I hate to use Political terminology, but
I suppose it's true. I fully believe in God, Jesus, and the like,
but I also feel that Religion and State are two separate
Lately, my religion has become more important to me in life than
before, and I'd respect you if you respected that.
Also, I really love Pro Wrestling. Yes, it's fake. Yes, it's silly.
But its still fun to watch.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm sort of in a state of flux. I'm not entirely sure
where I want to go with my life, who I want to be, or what I want
to do. I have lots of ideas, and plenty of dreams, but this entire
summer, for me at least, has been one of self-discovery and
changing my life around to hopefully find out the answer to that
I'm starting to think that my future may lie in something I'd never
expected; The church. I enjoy the idea of teaching, and I have a
hard time thinking that what many churches preach is correct. Many
a night, I've wondered if they were wrong, or if they were focusing
on the wrong thing. And I like the idea that I could fix
However, more recently, I've turned my attentions toward the goal
of spreading positive feelings in the shape of food to everyone.
I've started cooking more often, and I'm working towards a degree
in the Culinary arts, so that I can, eventually, open up my own
All of this, I do because I believe in myself. If there's one thing
you take away from reading any of this, take away this; The simple
act of believing in yourself can lead you to accomplishing
astounding things. Doing the impossible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a pretty decent writer (I avoid the word author, at least until
I can get published), as well as a decent public speaker. For
anything beyond that, I'm good at keeping people entertained, as
well as making friends and keeping promises.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My size, for one. I physically look intimidating from my size, but
in all reality, I'm a teddy bear. My hair is also one, as well as
the dark skin on my cheeks. No, they're not bruises, no they're not
dirty. It's just one of those things that just *is*.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Long story short, my favorite everything is Science Fiction. I love
Star Trek, Star Wars, Ringworld, etc.
My favorite book of all time is Jurassic Park with Journey to the
Centre of the Earth in a close second.
As for my favorite movies, I'll drop whatever I'm doing to watch
Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future, or Ghostbusters.
When it comes to music, my favorite band is Metallica, followed
closely by The Beatles. Cliché, I know, but its true. I do like all
kinds of music, though, its just I'm picky about which songs I
listen to in those genres.
Also, Rush is one of the greatest bands to ever exist. My proof is
the album 2112 and the song Rivendell.
Food wise, I love Coney Dogs and Hamburgers. So much so that my
dream is to open my own restaurant with a clear 50's-60's cruisin'
USA theme. In my head, I've already got the decor and menu sorted
out, and hopefully I can make AJ's Pitstop a reality one day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from biological necessities like breathing, blood, and the
like, there's not much I couldn't do without. I suppose maybe the
closest to it would be Video Games or Television (Even though I
rarely watch TV, I catch a lot of TV on Netflix or various other
sites on the Interwebs).
I do feel, however, that one thing I could probably never go
without is humor. Now that I think about it, a world without humor,
or a life without humor, is a life... I'd rather not live,
honestly. Seems too dull.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time wondering about the future. Where am I going?
What is my purpose? What can I do to fulfill that purpose? Will
Humanity ever reach into the stars and make them our neighbors?
Will we ever move beyond petty differences and prejudices?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a virgin with almost no experience
in the dating field. Maybe that's taboo, maybe it isn't. Honestly I
don't care. I'm comfortable enough in my own history to admit it,
and I couldn't care less if anyone thought any less of me for doing
so. If anything, saying anything derogatory about me because of
that information shows more negatively on your character than it

If you're at all interested in getting to know me, shoot me a
message. I can't guarantee I'll respond right then and there, or
even relatively quickly (Job + College = Oh my God, where did
Social life go?), but I will try my best to get back to you as soon
as I can. IF you want to try something more, then that's
Hell, if you just want to play some games or D&D, I'd love it.
