My self-summary
I'm a quiet, laid-back guy with strong morals and a socially liberal mindset. No, the two are not incompatible. I believe that most things in the world are not black and white, and that fascinates me. I don't usually initiate conversation with strangers or new acquaintances, but have no problem being friendly with people I don't know, as long as they are equally sociable. I say what I mean, if I can figure out exactly what it is I want to say. I'm not stupid, quite the opposite, but I do deliberate on a lot of things. I don't like to talk about myself as much as I like to hear others talk about themselves. I can find humor in most things, since I'm usually in a good humor myself, but most of the time I come off as very serious, due to my brevity. Also, I can be terse, so if you want to have a good conversation with me, don't be afraid to ask questions that can't be answered with a simple "yes" or "no." I will. I'm ridiculously less reserved on the internet than I am in real life (unless I'm with the right person/people), so forgive me if we ever meet and I'm less of a butterfly than you might expect.
What I’m doing with my life
I wish I knew for sure. I haven't found an ambition for anything, so when I "grow up" I just want to be retired. Maybe then I'll be able to fully explore my interests. Growing up, there was regular public education, and my parents signed me up for Boy Scouts and chorus, but I never felt like I had the opportunity to choose what I wanted to do for myself. Now that I'm older with financial responsibilities, it still doesn't feel that way. I guess I'm just indecisive and apprehensive about wasting years of my life doing something that I end up getting burnt-out on. Would that be better than devoting myself to nothing in particular but keeping my interests wide-ranging? Probably. And I guess that's the sort of philosophy I should apply to romance, too.

Oh, and my details list me as "dropped out" of college, which is inaccurate. I voluntarily withdrew. Lessons were going too fast and not in-depth enough for me to continue going thousands of dollars into debt for a low grade that would sabotage my own professional prospects.
I’m really good at
Most things logical.
Being patient.
Being quiet.
Climbing trees.
Analyzing situations from the point of view of an impartial observer.
Video games, though not necessarily in a competitive sense.
Being humble.
Hearing, and listening, and they're not the same.
Sneaking up on people. Completely by accident, of course. It's kind of funny, actually. But I DO NOT do it on purpose. Most of the time.
Singing, at least some songs sometimes. I try to sing along with songs in the car all the time, even if I don't know all the lyrics, which leads to some humming.
Getting into a groove when doing repetitive things. But I'm really nervous and terrible when it comes to actual dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure, I've never really asked anyone about that.
I've been complimented on my eyes before out of nowhere, so maybe those.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy novels as well as philosophy and scientific and historical literature, and the occasional comic book or manga.

I watch cartoons, American and Japanese. Some of my favorites are Batman: The Animated Series, Full Metal Panic!, Ghost in the Shell, Big O, Outlaw Star, Ouran High School Host Club, and Gantz. I also enjoy watching the Discovery and History Channels on TV. And I appreciate good (not lowbrow) comedy.

I have sort of an eclectic musical taste. I grew up listening to Country&Western, but most of my collection consists of tracks from anime or video games. I've also been really into jazz lately, and have recently discovered how awesome symphonic and power metal are. And I don't have much experience with punk rock, but I can listen to the entire discography of Fall Out Boy in a single sitting.

I'm not really too picky about food. I'll try most anything once, and usually more than that. I've sampled the standard Chinese, Mexican, Greek, Italian, German, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Irish, British, Creole, Cajun, down-home, western, New-English, Hawaiian, French, and Polish cuisines, and none of them were bad in general. There are certain ingredients I don't like on their own, but prepared with other things I can still enjoy them.
Six things I could never do without
- Coffee
- The Internet
- Books
- Peace and Quiet
- Music
- Interactive Media
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and anything. Especially things that don't matter, and that most people take for granted. How do things work/what is their origin, that sort of stuff. Is Balsamic vinegar made from wine that's allowed to go bad in a balsa wood barrel, for example? It's not really important, but that's the sort of thing I think about when my mind wanders.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home! I'm sort of a recluse right now. Could definitely stand to get out more, but for what?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have absolutely no relationship experience at all and I don't feel ashamed of it. A little regretful, maybe. I always put my schoolwork and future plans first, and wasn't any good at picking up signals anyway. Looking back, I missed a lot of opportunities.
You should message me if
- You like to pull people out of their shells.

- We have a high match percentage; I'd be pretty shy about sending you a message, even if I think your profile depicts you as an awesome person. I'll try to get over that.
The two of us
