My self-summary
Howdy! I'm Eric, and I think I'm pretty awesome. I only think this because I'm interested in awesome things, have a pretty awesome job, and awesome friends. But hey, that's for you to judge. Since this is a dating site, I should disclose that I am in a relationship. It's serious...and awesome. But, the dynamics of our relationship allow me to pursue other partners (as she is currently doing) to have fun with, make friends, whatever happens. She's cool with it, and so am I. If you're not, then that's cool too.

Note: I understand that being in a relationship probably disqualifies me from some through most of the single ladies on here. However, I do make an excellent friend (with or without benefits), so please don't let my status dissuade you from getting to know me if we have a ton in common. As I mentioned, I'm pretty awesome. You probably are, too.

So a few importing things to know about me.

Since 2003, I have lived in: New Jersey, Florida, back to New Jersey, New Mexico, and then back to Florida. It's been a whirlwind adventure.

I am an aspiring poker player (not gambler), having put in many long hours of reading, studying, playing, and repeating over the last couple of years.

I am also a huge baseball/Mets fan. Whether it's a specific team or just stats/history, the game of baseball is one of my favorite things to talk about (along with poker, philosophy, complex math or video games, among others).

I'm on the plus side of things, body type wise.
If you're automatically dismissive of people over 240lbs. then there probably won't be a lot of sparks. I know that chemistry is key but physical attraction is pretty important considering what I am looking for.

I'm a pretty avid gamer. Not obsessive, but I do enjoy them. Anything made between 1986-2000 was probably played by me at some point. I love me some retro shiz.

If you want to know more about my significant other, or just to make sure I'm not some sleeze stepping out on his lady, feel free to message her.

Her solo profile is Ravenclawgeek.
What I’m doing with my life
Preparing for the zombie apocalypse. Currently working (again!) in Sarasota as an appointment setter for eye doctors. I am getting more and more confident in my poker skills, having made several decent sized profits this year. Moved to Bradenton in March, and really enjoying the area. Getting back into some retro gaming and looking forward to what will be releasing soon (giggity).
I’m really good at
Listening, laughing/making other people laugh, dressing like a shlub (sometimes), playing poker, making other people around me feel smart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told I have a very honest aura. A lot of people say they trust me without really knowing me, which I guess is a good thing. I'm pretty loud (not on purpose), and I can always be found engaged in some good times, whenever possible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Da Vinci Code, anything by Douglas Adams Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc...Harry Potter, Fahrenheit 451, Crime and Punishment, No Exit, My Prison Without Bars(Pete Rose's book). Oh, and the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Recommendations are welcome.

TELEVISION: Here's an area that used to be full, but recently has dwindled down to a select few. If the names "Peter Griffin" or "Alton Brown" mean anything to you, you're on the right track. Others include Chuck, Dr. Who, Burn Notice, White Collar, Breaking Bad, Psych, Glee and Always Sunny.

FOOD: I will eat almost anything....except lima beans. If you serve me lima beans, I will set them on fire. If you knew I hated them and served them to me, then YOU will be set on fire, lol. I also have decent recipes for Sloppy Joes, Chicken Carbonara, and Quesadillas.

Games: Any Mario/Zelda/Metroid games are welcome. Call of Duty, old school Spyro or Crash Bandicoot. Kingdom Hearts. Halo (once in a while). Mass Effect.
The six things I could never do without
some sort of food type dealie
good times
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When will it be the Mets' year? When will I hit that big poker session? What am I doing this evening/weekend/month? How much IS that doggie in the window?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, making weekend plans. Depends on who is around, what's in the bank, and how much sleep I got.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I haz no sense of smell. Fascinating, no?
You should message me if
You like what you've read/seen so far, and/or you want to know what else I might have to offer.

You appreciate the saxophone parts in Pink Floyd songs. Or you like to do tags.

You love Family Guy and can quote a line from one episode per season.

You can make me laugh/think/smile.

You want to eat the most amazing Carbonara or Roast Chicken w/Risotto.

You have a zombie invasion plan.

You want to bring out your dead.

You think this sentence describes you to an eerily accurate degree: "She was amazing though, Ford. Beautiful, witty, mad as a balloon."

That is all.
