My self-summary
I like to think I'm pretty laid back. I've been told I'm the "strong, silent type" but I'm not sure how true that is. I can I can be kind of shy around people until I get comfortable with them, although I can get on with practically anyone. I seem to make people laugh so I guess that's awesome. I consider myself fairly driven and like to challenge myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on my career, setting myself goals in the gym and trying to spend time with those I care about.. I'm also enjoying being an uncle to the coolest 2 nieces you could ever meet!

I also just got back from a trip of a lifetime. I went to Thailand for my cousin's wedding and then spent several weeks in Australia, getting to know a whole part of my family I'd never met before.
I’m really good at
I think I can cook pretty amazing Mexican food and my Carolina Style Pulled Pork tends to be a hit. I can turn my hand to most other things, though I might need a practice run first. I can hold a conversation and have an opinion on most things without being judgemental or opinionated and have been told I'm an excellent listener. I like to think of myself as very creative and imaginative. I also pride myself on being caring and sensitive to others.
The first things people usually notice about me
I asked a friend about this and she said it's my aftershave. Apparently I have exceptional taste!

On a more serious note, it tends to be my muscles. Whilst I'm not a Dwayne Johnson or anything I do spend a fair amount of time at the gym and I think it shows. I like to think I come across at first as friendly and approachable. I'm also told I have nice eyes and a nice bum. You can be the judge on those though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I find I tend to go through phases of fiction and non-fiction. When I read fiction I tend towards fantasy or sci-fi or whatever random, offbeat, imaginative thing has caught my eye. For non-fiction I mainly read history, although I occasionally do try to pick topics I don't know much about. I have a stack of books on Taoist philosophy which I started on a whim and are now some of my favourites to reread. I also am a bit of a comic book geek, I worked in a comic store for a few years and my dining room is like a mini version of the store.

TV Shows: How I Met Your Mother (probably my favourite show ever), It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, nature or history documentaries, Dollhouse, Firefly, Better Off Ted, Adventure Time, Big Bang Theory, American Dad, Reno 911, Band Of Brothers.

Movies: Anything with Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd or Jason Segal. Leon, Watchmen, Jaws, Serenity, The Longest Day, The Fifth Element, I Love You Man, Team America: World Police, Gentleman Broncos, Super, Taken, The Cabin In The Woods.

Food: Tea and lots of it! Pizza and cookie dough ice cream (not at the same time). Anything vaguely Mexican, Chinese or a nice steak. That list makes me sound like I live on junk food. When I'm not eating all the lovely, fatty things I like a nice bowl of fruity muesli or a cheesy jacket potato with salad.

Music: NoFx, Pennywise, The Descendents, Rise Against, Skindred, Johnathon Coulton, The Slackers, Mad Caddies, Youngblood Brass Band, Ozomatli.
The six things I could never do without
Not in any specific order (except maybe the first one).

1: Hot tea on a cold day
2: My brother
3: My friends
4: Books
5: The internet
6: Cute kittens! (6 things is a lot to think of)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I should put the kettle on for a cup of tea. The answer is invariably yes.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym.

But after that I'm out for some food, hanging out with friends or sipping a tea or a whisky with a book. I'm not a major party guy, I do like to go out, just not every night. I am generally happy to be wherever my friends and family are.

One of the reasons I'm on this site is to find someone to do more fun-filled, exciting things on my Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can take a little while to open up to people about more personal things. If you're interested in learning more private things about me we should probably chat for a bit first.
You should message me if
The above seems interesting and you're looking to meet a nice, genuine guy. I'm here to meet new people, so if in doubt send me a message and we'll see how things go.
