I absorb general media pop-culture like osmosis and I'm tangentially aware of a lot of subjects so my humor can be a little referential. I find that I'm dry and sarcastic, perhaps with some semblance of (unknown) wit, but I appreciate all senses of humor. Puns are usually pretty great in a terrible sort of way. Laughter is a must.
As I age and get older I'm more appreciative of who I am. I know that I'm weird and unique. I'm one of a kind. I'm not worried about what others think of me, trying to be someone I'm not. Though I try to be a good person on the outside, inside I worry that I may be a bit too pessimistic, cynical, angry for my own good, but we're living in what could generously be called "interesting times." Humans are both a maddening and fascinating species. I'm a long term optimist, fascinated with the future. It's both exciting and terrifying.
I am curious, funny, and awkward. I'm a proud geek and a hopeless romantic. I love the idea of love and all the good and bad that comes with it, but haven't had too much experience with it yet. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart though I've yet to really discover or show it. I love friends and friendship! I can be fiercely loyal to the right people. But for now I'm just looking to meet new people, ease into new friendships and see where it goes. Though I lack confidence in myself at times (as I'm sure we all do), I know who I am and I'm comfortable in my own skin. I love all my friends dearly. Though I'm a bit shy I'm confident there's someone for me. I've been riding life solo for this long and it's been a great trip, but it'd be interesting and pretty great to meet a companion for the ride.
I'm not much of a "career person", but I've found I enjoy driving my car for work and I've searched out jobs that allow me to do that. I've driven for both Pizza Hut and Domino's, but moved on from pizza and for the last three years I've been a Lyft driver. I really enjoyed meeting thousands of different people and helping folks get home. The late night weekends eventually got a bit tiring for me so I've recently become a courier for a local Boulder business with more traditional working hours. I wonder what I'll do with my weekends again.
Hobbies include reading, movie going, walking, archery, some occasional parkour.
I have this weird talent where I can balance an impressive amount of books on my head.
I'm a very good listener. I'm sympathetic and I'm easy to talk to.
I love driving and long road trips. I've driven all day for a time. That's probably something that I'm really good at.
I'm a video gamer and a voracious reader when I find a good book or online article.

Been listening to a lot of 60s music lately, also Soul and Motown. I love EDM and dance/club music, and regular "classic rock" which I guess is 60s and 70s, but I think these days it might go all the way through the 90s. I'm a fan of 90s alternative and most current alternative music. So yeah, kind of everything, though I don't care much for country music or most rap music.
Everything. I'll eat mostly anything. I like to think I'm an adventurous eater, however, once in front of me, maybe it'd be a different story. I love sushi, a good bacon cheeseburger, salads are wonderful. As are steaks. Indian and Mexican and Thai are great. Food rocks.
3, The vast weath of knowledge and idiocy that is the internet
4. A mode of transportation, mainly my Prius
5. iPhone (more specifically the idea of portable, instantaneous knowledge)
6. Freedom of time and space
I think about where is the world is headed socially, technologically, demographically and where will we be all be in five, ten, forty years and how to remain optimistic about the future, despite the constant pessimism and seemingly non-progress. I think about all of the world events, weird weather and politics that shape, change and fuel both the world and my cynicism. ...
I think about the vast vast vastness of space, and aliens, and life, the universe and everything. I listen to music constantly, so I have a lot of lyrics jumping around in my head as well. Since I live up there I might as well have good tunes, thankfully there's only one voice.
What do you want to talk about?
I have many more secrets and stories and things to admit. Just not here.
That's what this service is for, right? Meeting people? You sound like a cool person. I'm cool, you're cool, we're cool people. Are you a huge dork? A geek? Weird and unique? Odd in someway? Let's pick each other's brains like zombies do. Rawr!
