My self-summary
Hi. I'm Eric. A pleasure to see you reading my profile. Well, those who I can see visiting me, anyway. If you are incognito and reading this, maybe you'll like what you see/read and show yourself. If not, it's cool.
A little information about me:
•6'1" 265lb Brainy guy trapped in a good ol ' boys body.
•SIUC graduate, majored in Sociology minor Psychology. Social structures and the way individuals interact within groups fascinates me.
• recently promoted to working as a inventory specialist for a good company, but with the promotion came working the 3rd shift.

Addendum: I've been working a lot of long hours lately, and logged into my profile for a while. Really, I haven't really been feeling up to the dating game. With Summer almost gone, I'm looking forward to the Fall weather, but am dreading the holiday season. Too many bad memories surface this time of year, which sours the need to get out of the house and socialize. All I plan on doing for the rest of the year is buy a new guitar, practice, work, and save enough money to take a vacation this time next year.
So, I'm taking a break from looking for any kind of relationship. I'm already feeling too vulnerable to let anyone get close to me which, let's face it, is not a very attractive trait.

Take care of yourselves :)

p.s. I may be emotionally detached, but I'm not physically dead. I had to select something, and I admit that I would at least consider 'casual sex' if the opportunity presented itself. Honestly, who on here is single, lonely, and WOULDN'T like to get laid? Just an observation...
What I’m doing with my life
Things are looking up :)
I'm fairly certain a better position is about to open for me where I work, which will mean better hours, pay, plus some fringe benefits to help get back into shape.
So, looks like I'm going to be staying in the Nashville Illinois area for a while, or maybe even look into moving closer to St louis in the future.
I'm truly ready for a little solidarity in my life. Make some ends meet, take some deep breaths, catch up on a ton of anime and other TV shows, and maybe even start writing again in full force. It would be awesome to meet someone for adventures in the city as well. I'm feeling very, very culture starved at the moment.
I’m really good at
I can eat 50 eggs. I'm faster than the speed of smell. I can sleep 12 hours in a row without rest. I can almost smoke a whole pack of cigarettes in two days, one if I'm drinking. Lastly, I handle rejection rather well.
The first things people usually notice about me
This is such a trick question. A correct answer would be 'How can I know?' Sure, we can all fall back on the usual defining traits. I'm tall. I identify as a heterosexual white male in my mid-thirties.
What are we looking for under this heading, though? Do we stereotype ourselves so that others can fit us in a mental category that appeals to our ideal, pedestal worthy image we can use to determine whether or not to answer messages or block unworthy users?
Yeah, that sounds about right. I only mention it because I do it too.

The six things I could never do without
If I couldn't walk or talk I don't think I would want to live. Independence is very important. Life would suck without literature and other entertaining mediums, but I could do without them. I'll go ahead and say people too. I love people.
Damn, that's only five things. Oh yeah, music! Life would be really dull without a soundtrack.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who R.R. Martin is going to kill next on Game of Thrones; Will the Dark Tower movies really work with a black Gunslinger; What country am I going to immigrate to if Trump wins the election; Am I really putting so much honest effort into a dating website profile and believing it will all be read?
On a typical Friday night I am
No idea as of now. Right now I read and write in the evenings instead of hitting the bars or going on other adventures.
You should message me if
If you have curves, are intelligent and smart (there is a difference), can sing, play an instrument, are introverted and looking for a kindred spirit. Tattoos are a plus, but not really a requirement. I have plans to get more in the future. If you really watch anime, read manga, and want to talk.

As for reasons to not message me, I have to ask if there is a significant amount of years between our ages, I'm going to have to ask your leave. I've tried dating older and younger women, and I just can't shake the feeling that something is 'off'. So, I'm looking for someone in their 30's I think. Someone who has spent the same amount of time in this world so that we might be the same àmount of crazy.
