Yes, I know what you're thinking: "I could never be with somebody who can't eat cheese!" But you're wrong. After cheese ages for a year, all of the lactose ages out of it. My fridge is full of cheddars, goudas, and other exotic cheeses that have all aged for years. When you date me, you get the best cheeses.
1. I'm a bisexual, polyamorous hedonist.
If we date, you also get the pleasure of meeting my girlfriend. And her husband. And his girlfriend. It's surprisingly awesome.
2. I'm a 20-something with a steady 8-5, a respectable paycheck, my own car, health benefits, and vacation time.
3. I love sushi.
I eat it weekly. It's hard for me to save money when I could be eating sushi.
4. I also own a gaming company.
It doesn't make me money, but it does take up a lot of my time. It's primarily roleplaying games. I don't do video games (though I'm slowly teaching myself programming).
5. Mexican Martinis and Anime
On my "nights off," I tend to sit down with a Mexican Martini and watch some anime. That's my favorite form of relaxation.
I wrote a roleplaying game. It has won awards. So I'm either good at writing roleplaying games or good at publicity. It has to be one of them.
I'm excellent at Facebook. Is that a skill?
I'm a parliamentarian. Most parliamentarians are 70-years-old, but I figured I'd get my head start at mastering this dying art. I'm positive this turns you on. You're thinking, "Oh, you know parliamentary procedure? Tell me I'm out of order! Pound me with that gavel! Oh yes, I am sooooo dilatory. Take my panties."
If this were an interview, I would tout my Excel skills, my knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign, my years of managing the logistics for a mult-million dollar company, and really push the idea that I'm a man of integrity.
#2 - I have a necklace that I fiddle with all day.
#3 - My facial hair changes on a biweekly basis. If you hate it right now, just wait a few days. It'll be different.
#4 - I always keep a pen in my pocket. My pants aren't MY pants until they have an ink spot on the front.
Comics: Basically, a fun world makes me happy. Examples: East of West, Saga, Hactivist, Star Wars. I also love the X-Men universe.
Movies: I love action movies with a fun twist. Examples: Lucky Number Slevin, Red, Ip Man. I am currently breathing Mad Max: Fury Road. Witness me!
Shows: Anime is one of my favorites, though it's mostly the "serious and political" animes that get me. I also love political dramas. Some of my favorites include: The West Wing, Downton Abbey, Restaurant Impossible, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, House of Cards, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Pasta
Music: I am a fan of strong beats or anything that gets me in the mood. Examples include: AVICII, Glitch Mob, Overwerk, Justice, Yelle, Something a la Mode, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imogen Heap
Food! Sushi, Indian... anything delicious, really. I love tzatziki sauce, and I am obsessed with ginger. I drink ginger kombucha in the morning and end my day with ginger beer (of the alcoholic variety). If I can sneak another form of ginger into my day, I will.
People. I'm one of those "extroverts." I like to do things alone and get a lot of work done when I'm alone, late at night. But I recharge by being around people, discussing my work, and building things together.
Pilot Precise V7 RT. Yep, I'm talking about a pen. I need these pens. I always have one on me. As I am fond of saying, "A true man always has a pen on him. Only a boy would leave the house without a pen."
Hookah. I enjoy social smoking, especially from my hookah. While I don't use it as often now-a-days, the occasional hookah night is nearly necessary for me.
Daylight bulbs. I'm fond of a properly lit room. I do not appreciate working in the dark; it makes the area feel dirty. Daylight bulbs provide blue lighting, which is optimal for focused work. (This is an odd change to me, since for years I really liked working in the dark.)
A Project. I am a goal-oriented person. I tend to be busy. When I'm not busy, I make myself busy until I am overloaded. This is why I've built my own company - I like to be busy, and a company gives me numerous goals to call my own.
My Car. My car provides a great deal of freedom to me. I like that freedom. Thus, I love my car.
But let's be honest: on a typical Friday night, I'm eating sushi.
REVISION: 1 year later, I revised this entire profile in the bathtub.
You should message me if you want to get sushi.
You should message me if you are into board games, card games, roleplaying games, good drinks, and good company.
You should message me if you are sexy.
