My self-summary
On what is probably my 200th revision of this profile, I've come to believe that I may simply be trying to include too much about myself. So my new profile is going to be short and suffice. Anybody interested can learn more about me in our conversations together :D

My name is Matt. I'm tall, not-fat-but-not-skinny, and I'm a goofball at heart. I like wearing silly hats, obnoxious sunglasses, and shirts with kittens on them because it makes other peoples' days better. I'm also classed as an INFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Just waiting for it to end. Not saying I want do die, though. I still enjoy myself in life. There are millions of bizarre ways to die in the world and countless numbers of people die everyday, so I'm just kind of curious to see what gets me and when it'll happen. I try to enjoy the food and company that life provides in the meantime.
I’m really good at
finding flavors in food. I know that's a weird talent to have, but it's actually really useful for cooking. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I can taste all of the different spices and ingredients they use in a dish and I can, with a little experimenting, recreate or even improve that recipe at home for a fraction of the cost. I've recreated Asian soup recipes that I don't even know the name for just by having tasted it.
The first things people usually notice about me
As my best friend once told me, my best and most noticeable trait is that, despite the atrocities of the world today, I haven't let it get me down. Which isn't completely true as I do combat my depression on a regular basis, but I'm still energetic and excitable and I try to see the good in everybody and everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, Harry Potter, and Jurassic Park are my favorite book series of all time, though I try to read a wide variety of different series.

Movies: I love Marvel Movies, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Pixar Movies (except Cars for some reason) and a lot of Chick Flicks and Sci-Fi films that touch on controversial and philosophical issues. My favorite movies are Jurassic Park, Memoirs of A Geisha, Perks of Being A Wallflower, Wall-E, Rush Hour 2, and Dr. Strange.

Shows: Really love Big Bang Theory and Walking Dead. Also love South Park, New Girl, Last Man Standing, Breaking Bad, The Misfits, & Agents of SHIELD.

Music: I mostly listen to metal and the various Rock genres, but I also enjoy small amounts of rap here and there, though mostly the classics. I prefer to listen to Eminem, Snoop Dog, and Tupac than today's garbage like Drake and Kanye. My favorite artists are Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Serj Tankian, Eminem, & Fort Minor.

Food: Asian food. Live it. Like it. Love it. If you promise me Padd Thai or Japanese Sushi, I'll love you forever :D
Six things I could never do without
Coca-Cola (I mostly drink Sprite, now, but Coke is still an important part of my history.)
Science Fiction
Air Conditioning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Starting a family. The realization that with every year that goes by, I'm a little bit older and that much less likely to be able to have a daughter of my own someday. Assuming I'm even able to have children, there's also the realization that I haven't even started a relationship that will eventually lead to having them and by time I do get to have my family, I'm going to be too old or tired to do all of the things I want and need with my loved ones. That scares me more than anything else in this world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually home aimlessly browsing Reddit or Facebook out of boredom unless I have a movie to watch or a game to play (though I'm admittedly a little burned out on gaming right now.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like it when women have the courage to make the first move. Messaging first, asking out on a date, and even marriage proposal isn't something that should always be left to the guy, especially since a lot of guys like myself are completely clueless and terrible at seeing the signs (I imagine there are 2 or 3 girls I could've asked out in my lifetime who would've said yes, but I didn't and the opportunity passed.)
You should message me if
To be honest, I've never really been able to convey what I want in words very accurately. I just want company. I want somebody who enjoys going out to eat and going to the beach or just laying around on the couch playing videogames and watching movies all day. I'm not looking for just another friend, but I'm not really looking for a full-on relationship either. I'm not looking for a one-night stand or a hookup relationship. I'm honestly not even interested in having a sexual relationship. I just really like the idea of somebody being there who enjoys the things I enjoy and vice versa so we can have each other to share our life experiences with. I honestly don't know what I want or what you would call that.
The two of us
