My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh boy, here we go. The dreaded "how do I describe myself in such a way as to show how delightfully awesome I am, while not sounding arrogant or self centered, and pique the interest of people I would be interested in without alienating anyone or creating some sort of bogus false expectations?" Or maybe that's just me, I don't know. I like to imagine this is a question that plagues online dating site users, but I am prone to analyzing everything.

I suppose I should just come clean to start with, I am what some people would refer to as a "nerd" or "geek." With many of the stereotypes associated with such titles being accurate representations of me. I love reading. I like games of all types (video games, board games, card games, role playing games etc). I like science fiction, some fantasy, and I like it when a story explains why something is, instead of just expecting you to accept that it's just how things are. I'm very shy, and somewhat self conscious about it.

One thing that I kind of break the mold on though is that I very much like sports. I'm a huge hockey fan, I started playing when I was 5. My favorite teams (in order) are my hometown Detroit Redwings, and my adopted home Carolina Hurricanes. I also like football, both professional and college. I am proud to say I was a Detroit Lions fan through the good times and bad, and I'm a NC State Wolfpack fan on the NCAA side. I also particularly like volleyball, and other than that most anything they are willing to put in the Olympics is entertaining enough to be worth watching.

I think it's also only a fair disclaimer that I'm not super into anime, comic books, or manga. I know those things do typically go into the realm of nerd, and while I'm not opposed to them, I also never really got into them.

As far as the sort of place I'd choose for a date, I'm not too picky, but I do have certain criteria I desire. I prefer to go to places where it is light enough to reasonably see the person you are with, quiet enough that you can have a reasonable expectation of having a conversation that isn't primarily shouting "what?" at each other, and an adequate seating:patron ratio to ensure a reasonable possibility of finding a table vice standing in a mass of humanity all night. All of which I find to be extremely achievable goals without imposing too much in the way of restrictions.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am 5 classes away from finishing my bachelor's degree, I'm a first class petty officer in the US Navy, and I'm striving to improve myself physically and mentally. I currently intend to get out of the Navy in about 1.5 years when my contract is finished, at which point I'm tentatively planning to work for Westinghouse as a nuclear engineer. Of course it's only fair to put up a disclaimer that what the future holds is, as Yoda says, "Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. I love to learn new things, and as such I'm pretty much continuously trying to figure out how things work and why. If curiosity killed the cat, then I guess it's a good thing I'm not a cat.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically... that I shave my head, I have pretty sweet (if I must say so myself) blue eyes, or my clever T-shirts.

Personality wise, I suspect that they notice my quiet and reserved exterior, but presumably one can also observe my witty insights and sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: More than you can possibly imagine, I love reading, but...
Dorsai!, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Inherit the Stars, a ton of Star Wars books, Ender's Game, The Mote in God's Eye, Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, Starship Troopers, Time Enough for Love, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress... I feel silly even trying to list them all

Movies: Star Wars, The Matrix, Equilibrium, Mel Brooks films, Slapshot, Mystery Alaska, Gladiator, U-571, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Unforgiven, I, Robot, The Bourne ____, The Golden Compass, Stardust (laugh it up, fuzzball... it's actually surprisingly interesting storyline) The Princess Bride... Once again I'm getting a long list going (and using not-entirely-necessary ellipses)

Music: Country, Rock, Oldies, and anything that is either catchy or funny.

Food: Rice is pretty much my only exception to "If it grew up under water, I don't like it." But I like most everything else, with particular emphasis on Mexican, Italian, Chinese/Japanese and classic American foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computers [I argue IG-88 (My phone, he's a droid, get it?) technically would qualify as a computer, thus doesn't require his own listing. I also really like personifying my inanimate objects.]
My car (Her name is Gabby)
Good books
Opposable thumbs? (Ask a silly question, you get a silly answer)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently a friend asked me "What would you do if you knew that you could not fail at it?"

I'm trying to figure that out, but I suspect it probably has to do with developing practical interstellar space travel, and then convincing humanity that we need to expand beyond our home planet. Kind of a big thing, but then why blow your critical success on jumping over a puddle when you could jump the pacific ocean instead?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Of late I have been attending Friday Night Magic fairly regularly. I'm not opposed to going out and doing stuff on a Friday night, be that a movie/drinks/dinner or what have you. I'm not a big fan of super crowded/noisy venues, for example "clubs." But honestly I'm most inclined to stay home and watch a movie or play a game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a complete sucker for things that relate to places I'm from. For example: I like several Kid Rock songs because they reference Michigan and it makes me think of when I was a little kid living there, or I get really excited when I see a North Carolina license plate because I feel like they're a fellow tarheel braving the North East.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are inclined to get to know me better.

You have similar interests.

You have a brain the size of a planet, and know where that saying comes from.

You want to? Do you really need any other reason?

You like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain? Wait, I feel like that isn't very original...

You have some other compelling reason, divine intervention, etc
