My self-summary
Hi, I'm Mike.

I work a lot. I don't go out to the bars, clubs, or any venue to meet other gay men pretty much. A good number of friends have had success with OkCupid so... giving it a go.

PROs:

- Smart
- Loyal
- Good-looking
- Value principles
- Driven

CONs:

- Blunt
- Avoid all forms of small talk
- Workaholic
- Swear more than I should
- Unforgiving (pending seriousness!)

I am an INTJ Myers-Briggs personality type... which is generally referred to as "The Mastermind". I love problem solving, logic, systems designs, and things of that nature. Swimming and keeping in shape are none of those things but I like that, too.

I live my life by the good ol' "Golden Rule" as often as possible.

- I prefer socializing in low key settings.
- I hold doors open for everyone.
- I always tip service workers.
- I boycott establishments that do wrong.
- I also like lists
What I’m doing with my life
I work in video game development as a lead game designer and also a pseudo-engineer, producer, and development director.
I’m really good at
Excel. Seriously. REALLY good at it.

Need help working with multidimensional arrays, exporting data to external files, and/or VBA programming? I'm your man.

I know, spreadsheet skills are probably the hottest thing you've read on a profile.
The first things people usually notice about me
Used to be my glasses. Now it's my seemingly non-aging genes (thanks, parents).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These are good "getting to know you" topics so I'll just drop in a couple for each category (and add games):

Game: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (Mobile) & League of Legends (PC)
Movie: The Neverending Story
Show: MasterChef
Music: Gojira, Tool, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden
Food: Chipotle. Carnitas bowl. Omnom.
The six things I could never do without
- Principles
- Imagination
- Intelligence
- Internet
- Good Hygiene
- Gym
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... how unfathomably huge the universe is.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not at work, I'm usually playing video games or watching TV. It's the truth.

Otherwise I'm out with friends doing dinner / drinks / shenanigans. It really depends how socially drained I am from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My family used to be of noble blood until an ancestor's rebellion failed to overthrow Queen Mary I.

Apparently treason against the sitting ruler is frowned upon. Mad props for the attempt, though!
You should message me if
You're a kind person at your core, intelligent, funny, enjoy staying in shape, and being a fellow gamer is a big plus.

Please, please, please no "Hey, what's up?" or similar messages. I've made this fanciful little template to help out when the urge to say "Sup?" is brewing:

"Hi, I'm [insert]. I liked your profile. It's awesome that we have [random thing] in common. Give mine a read and ping me back if you're interested, too!"
