My self-summary

Sensitive, loyal, assertive and smart. INTJ personality type. Bird and fish person. Love aviation, technology and science stuff (marine biology, astronomy, etc). I have lots artistic tendencies in writing and illustration. I do a lot of thinking and creative pursuits most of the time. I'm a Christian, am a geek and a nerd, and obsess over fandoms, video games and science (and other things along those lines.) I travel a lot when I can.

I don't smoke, do drugs or drink (only occasional wine a few times a year at important dinners). Aside from jogging and some biking, I'm not an outdoors person (I don't hike, canoe ,camp, horseback ride, rock climb or such.). I own zero pets.

I am the age of a millenial, but act more old-fashioned and mature of someone from the 80's-90's. Grew up with a flip phone, had The Magic School Bus in class and remember when they launched the Galileo probe. Windows 98, discmans, floppy disks, Halo and Xbox, you get the idea.

I'm looking for a girl with similar interests for the long haul, someone to get married to and explore the world together and eventually raise a family. Not interested in short-term junk, games, something that isn't serious or "let's be friends for 3 years before I decide if I want to date or get married."

Ideally, I would like a college-educated partner that knows how to live real life (keep good track of their health, know how to handle life responsibilities), but have a love of video gaming, has technical knowledge and have an imagination to dream. Especially desire someone close to my age. Someone who's capable and doesn't need to be babied up/doted on every second in some "Appalachian romance story" or a "sugar daddy"(I hate that term.) But can dress up and be formal/classy if needed (sorry "I ain't wear nothin' but blue jeans" types).

Think of the Companion from Doctor Who; one episode she's wearing a big prom dress or something along those lines, another she's picking up a rifle and blasting Daleks the next. Blossoming love while standing together against what the universe throws at you. Being an adorable dork on top of all of that and warranting a huge hug.

If money is your "motivation" in life and that's all you want to do, we're definitely going to be at each other's throats. There's a difference between trying to make a living versus being some gold-digging diva that throws "bling" everywhere and just wants a man as a side-accessory to pay for her habits. I'm the guy who'll get covered in grease to fix the car one day, and be clean, shaven and "smart" coding on a computer the next. I'm not afraid to work or make my life happen, but there's a lot more to life than materialistic things or how many zeroes I'm pulling in. So kindly take a right turn and swipe whatever direction if riches is the only thing on your mind.

I'm on here to try to look for someone that doesn't spend or want to spend their lives in the rural backwoods of east Tennessee or the surrounding states. I've been constantly surrounded by rural folk that don't mesh or understand a fraction of my lifestyle, or outright hate it because "you ain't like us". I have found more common ground with people across oceans, different states and countries, sometimes not even speaking English properly. It's my hope that someone more in arm's reach will run across this and connect.

I'm foreign, I'm "ain't local", I'm a city person. I'm looking for someone similar.

My ideal woman is NOT a chubby Southern-speaking woman that owns a farm, loves Sevierville with all her heart, super local and at home in some little rural town, waves a Confederate flag, has two kids, refuses to touch non-American food and needs to live out the middle of nowhere without a cell phone signal. Seriously, separate paragraph for this. I'm baffled to why this group keeps messaging me in droves despite being so alien to your way of life, especially after having to spell it out. If you match up with any of the above, please move on. It's not my lifestyle and I'm not interested with someone from that background. Period.

In that same breath, it's also not a super liberal millenial/Generation Z hipster that ghosts, wears big plastic glasses and tights all the time, can't speak on a phone, is anti-gun, takes constant Snapchat photos and has to carry a little dog everywhere (or own 2+ cats). You get the picture.

Immediate dealbreakers are obesity, "curvy" and BBW body types, a Southern/Appalachian/country accent and lifestyle (using ain't/y'all/memaw, "twangs", calling shopping carts "buggies", etc; it's extremely annoying), kids, being Baptist, tons of animals and a smoker. And while not quite a dealbreaker, super-short hairstyles and poorly written profiles (no capitalization and punctuation) are pretty close.
What I’m doing with my life
I freelance and work for myself in the digital media field. So I do websites, format books/eBooks and do graphic design for various clients. Have been a comic book colorist for a few projects.

I currently float between large city centers, looking for a place to settle and better job opportunities.

I'm also a self-published indie author and game developer, so when not doing the first paragraph, I'm writing, blogging, doing art and developing games.

And I help with the family business now and then.
I’m really good at
*Navigation when traveling
*Adapting to controls on a vehicle (Newtype much?)
*Being funny but not spazzing out like Markiplier when playing a game
*Logical thought
*Telling you about outer space
*Flight and spacelight simulators (hey, comes from actual past flight experience!)
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look real young. A lot of people often think I'm 20 or even 17.

And that I'm probably not dressed in the retro/hipster-ish style of a typical millenial. Tend to look like someone off a Daughtry album cover half the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Young adult novels, sc-fi and science books. Stephen Hawking, Michiko Kaku, Star Trek paperbacks, Thea Stilton series, etc. An occasional manga now and then.

Games: Indie story and adventure games, along with strategy and some action in there. Starcraft 2, Age of Empires, Supreme Commander along with things like Ori and the Blind Forest, ABZU, Oxenfree. A few AAA stuff like Elite: Dangerous, Halo and Overwatch. PC is my platform of choice, though I do dabble in Xbox now and then.

Movies: Independence Day, Apollo 13, Secret of Kells, Pacific Rim, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Lord of the Rings, Summer Wars, and I, Robot. I also like Pixar stuff.

Shows: Don't watch a lot of modern stuff nowadays. Am a casual anime fan. Stuff like Gundam, Person of Interest, Stargate SG-1 and documentaries get my interest (I will occasionally poke at Doctor Who.) My kid side loves cartoons from back in the day, especially stuff like Arthur, Lloyd in Space and the like.

Music: Basically 3 types; heavy EDM/techno, alternative rock/metal (Linkin Park, Papa Roach), or quiet melodies like Enya or video game music. Deep house, Japanese pop and European dance/electronica are my favorites. I keep an extremely far distance from rap, hip-hop/R&B and country. Bluegrass is especially irritable and I avoid it at all costs.

Food: Italian, Chinese, Indian and most vegetable dishes. I really am fond of very spicy curry, fried chicken and lo mein noodles. I don't touch pork, most beef or certain seafood in any way, shape or form.
Six things I could never do without
-My art workstation
-iPad/iPhone (nope, not a hipster. Sorry)
-Something to read that's astronomy or aviation related
-Bluetooth headphones
-A sketchbook/notebook
-My imagination
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where can I call home that's not a rural country town, and how to connect to people with a similar background with my interests. In between of all that, what would be involved if I live on the moon, or how to chuck jet engines on the Space Shuttle so its capable of atmospheric flight. And maybe how to best you in Overwatch in the upcoming evening.

I also think about the future in terms of technology and development: what can be implemented to make the world more efficient, what new tech lays over the horizon and what will impact the way we lives our everyday lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
I really do tend to stay in on Friday night. I'm home eating dinner, playing games or piddling around on the Internet. I'm just glad that the week is over and can kick back for the evening.

Will I go out on Friday? Yes! Just have a great event or be an awesome friend to have something interesting planned.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I called GoDaddy at 3:30AM one night, just to test their 24 hour policy. Was impressed.
You should message me if
You're not an old-fashioned woman who believes in "only guys should message first". If you see what you like and want interest, drop a line; I believe in being upfront and showing interest without a game of tag, mostly associated with a quaint "Southern/Christian courtship" outlook.

Wave a video game controller at me and greet me in a foreign language. Gush about that cute rhino instead of someone's chihuahua in a tutu. Better yet tell me sake jokes about Hanzo, how you like the 1080GTX Founder's Edition or how you'd like to live on another planet. That will get you places.

Just be a sensible, fit-bodied, open-minded, non-Southern, non-hipster that's not a crazy animal lady and we should get along.

Bonus if your vocabulary contains these; you'll definitely grab my attention a lot faster: XD, rofl, :3, hehe, delish, complainy, lmao, etc.
The two of us
