My self-summary
Hello and welcome to this thing! Hopefully I made myself sound somewhat interesting, so please read and enjoy!

THE SHORT VERSION
I'm a shy & quiet guy hoping to meet someone and do the whole "dating/relationship" thing, and have it work this time. Must be okay with the offbeat & weird. Also, and fondness for the nerdy and a love of music would be great.

THE LONG VERSION
My name is Anthony, and I'm currently surviving in a crummy Northeast Philly neighborhood that may or may not kill me. I'm an awkward dude when it comes to meeting new folks. I can be rather shy and quiet, and that definitely makes things tough when trying to meet anyone. I spend most of my time either working or at home. I've become a bit of a homebody in my old age. I like hanging out at home, but I do strive for the occasional outside adventure. I listen to a lot of music, play a lot of video games, and squeeze in whatever movies or TV shows I can. I have a weird sense of humor, tell dumb stories, and act like a real life cartoon character. And my favorite word is "prestidigitation."

NONSENSE
-I want a pet pig or pet duck. Or both.
-I would love to overcome my fear of flying and travel. I'd like visit Iceland or Japan.
-I'd like to attend a con of some kind.
-Despite my gruff, manly exterior, I have no problem identifying things as "cute" and "adorable."
-I don't just sing in the shower, I put on a full blown performance.
-My hair cannot commit to one popular genre of music

Two things I just wanna put out there to save some people time: I don't drive or have my own place. These are things I'm working on.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR
While I'm always down for making new friends, my main goal is looking to meet someone for an eventual relationship. And I mean the real deal relationship, with a future and everything. I'd just like to be with someone who accepts me for the geeky weirdo I am. We can spend sickening amounts of time together, and do dumb things and have fun and love life! I want a relationship that sticks like peanut butter sticks to crackers. I love peanut butter crackers!

And most importantly, I want someone who will play all my terrible Super Mario Maker levels. And I mean terrible in every way.

Hopefully something above made me sound super rad and not totally pathetic. Regardless, there's more to my online dating profile thing, so please to continue!
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I'm working my glamorous "full-time" retail job. By night, I'm solving mysteries with my hippie friends & their dog. Or sleeping.
I’m really good at
Random facts, staying up really late, crafting mix CDs/playlists, making ridiculous meals, eating said ridiculous meals, listening, alphabetical order, bad impressions & accents, microwaves, spending money, mumbling & keeping it real.

I'm really bad at: long division, smiling, taking compliments, communicating with words, making sense, climbing ladders, poker, using an oven & taking directions.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I don't get my hair cut regularly (which I don't), my hair gets pretty wild. I also wear shorts year-round, and people tend to point that out when it's below zero. And people usually compliment me on my choice of t-shirts.

Oh, and there's that whole quiet thing...

(Food)
I like food, food tastes good.
The six things I could never do without
My family & friends, of course. My busted-ass iPod is still required. Air to breathe would also be nice. Food is also kind of important. And viewers like you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. Squirrels. Life with squirrels.

Why do I dream about zombies so often?

Breakfast / brunch / lunch / dinner / dessert / second dinner / midnight snack.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't like this implication that Friday night is special. I've always preferred Tuesday nights.

Regardless, I'm either working or at home. If the planets align, I might spend time with friends outside the home & workplace.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm secretly a ninja. Keep that one in your pocket.

Besides that, I have nothing to hide.
You should message me if
If you're looking for a sincere, nerd-ass guy who has some (major?) social quirks & a yearning for a meaningful relationship, then why not send a little message? Who knows; could be the best darn thing you do today. Nothing to lose, something to gain. And I really don't want to end up a crazy hermit mountain man who lives alone in a shack...at least not by myself!

Also, if you think "Teenage Dirtbag" is one of the greatest songs ever written, then why aren't we already talking?! Or why aren't we singing the song from a rooftop at 3 in the morn?!
