My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm also not quite Ted. But there are similarities.

So, I'm (still) looking for the love of my life. Much like someone you might well be familiar with, I grew up in an eastern suburb of Cleveland; I love the Indians and had a hard time getting past the whole LeBron thing even after he came back; I have a technical job I'm pretty good at but is pretty boring; and I'm really pretty darn bad at dating. I'm frankly sometimes a bit pretentious; correcting things other people might say or do, but I'm also kindhearted and really don't think that much of myself. I have this habit of doing ridiculous, over-the-top romantic gestures and telling embarrassing stories that last way too long.

You'll have to be okay with the fact that one of my best friends is a woman who I had a relationship with years ago that ended very badly for me... It hurt; so much I was ready to leave town for good, but she let me know how much my friendship meant to her, and she worked to prove it... we both tried hard to get past the pain and awkwardness. It took awhile, but it got to the point that she moved in to my apartment and lived with me for a while at a difficult time in her life... and we stayed just friends. Anyway, she's married now, so it's okay.

My ideal girl likes old movies. She may or may not play bass guitar, but a love of music is always a plus. She probably has a few quirks here and there... she's almost certainly navigated just as bumpy a road getting here as anyone has with a kind heart intact; otherwise I don't know how she'd learn to put up with my never-ending in-jokes, obscure references, and wincingly mistimed emotional honesty and intensity.

My parents are divorced, tho it happened after I'd grown up and moved out. Still, it made me realize how important choosing the right person is. Perhaps that's made me overly choosy... While I've met some very nice girls who seemed to like me very much and thought I was nice too, it was pretty clear to me that none of them were my Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz. And the very few of them who I thought for a time might be, in the end it seems weren't meant to be.

And so I've always wanted a family, yet here I am, the last of my friends still unmarried. It hasn't helped that occasionally I've spent way too much time chasing the unattainable... at least unattainable at the time I was chasing. You might say I have terrible timing. Or I try to force the emotional side of things along too fast. I don't know. I just keep putting myself in ridiculous situations and hoping that fate will find a way. It hasn't worked much thus far... but it only has to work once, right?

Sometimes I do have my moments of doubt. Recently I distracted myself for a bit fixing up a new place I bought, but I'm pretty much done with that, so maybe it's time to start trying again... It's tough going sometimes, but I still think that girl with the yellow umbrella is out there somewhere for me.

No, I'm not a sitcom character, though it feels that way sometimes. And hopefully the end of one story can be the start of the real one. Hopefully.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Following yonder star...

Mostly I'm doing what everyone else is doing, trying the best they can. Well, maybe not the *absolute* best. But still trying to get closer to the ideal.

I've decided to declare all the embarrassing parts of my life non-canon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Certain things that are very difficult. I make up for it by being really bad at things that should be easy.

Saying ridiculous, crazy, impractical things in order to get someone's attention. And actually meaning them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm rather tall. I'm left-handed. I have unusually colored eyes.

Yet people know me for years before suddenly noticing these things.

So I don't know.

J'ai été dit que j'ai ce certain... Comment vous dites... "I don't know what."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The Good Book. And plenty of other decent books too. I don't read as often as I should, though. But I've heard from reputable sources that Print is dead.

I dressed up like one of the Ghostbusters for Halloween. And then a couple times after that, just for fun. But it's not like I built my own proton pack and then got Egon to autograph it or anything (if you must know, it was Winston). And that time I made up my MINI Cooper as Ecto-1? That was just because we were volunteering to pass out candy to kids at a Halloween festival. I only left it like that for barely a month afterwards...

I have a WNYX coffee mug. A Twin Pines Mall security T-shirt. And the Caduceus shirt Cameron wore on his friend's day off. I'm still looking for that really large oversized poster of Atlantic City.

I like most kinds of food. Chinese (Szechuan style especially), Japanese, Italian, American (whatever that means). I don't hate dairy products, but they seem to have it out for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hope. Faith. Family. The sky. Love. Plus the normal stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe. Everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying at home, going out, visiting family, going out for long drives to no where in particular. Making something, making a mess, making plans... who knows.

I love to travel, and was in Kentucky working on contract at Fort Knox last year. No, they don't let you see the gold.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have what many people might consider to be rather outdated and unrealistic opinions about having sex outside of marriage.

And I live accordingly. Which isn't always the easiest thing in the world. But in the end it's always turned out to be the right decision. Though I suppose it also depends on what your definition of 'is' is....
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have an Erdős–Bacon number.

You're looking for the most amazing, insightful, witty, and truly emotionally meaningful conversation you've ever had. (Because I'm looking for that too, and we could talk about how cool it'd be to have that.)

You're a fan of a certain television program and recognize the details of my self-summary above as being similar to those of the main character. I assure you they're all totally true for me. And if you've ever said 'Why can't I meet a guy like that'; and truly meant it... because I also assure you I'm just as difficult to deal with sometimes, and I don't come with a laugh track.

Oh, and if you don't type 'your' when you mean "you're," wow, that would be awesome! It bothers me just as much.
