I love cats. I think I might have made that obvious by now.
Although I do want children someday, I don't want them soon. I'd rather live and love before I love chaos.
I'm living my life working the job of my dreams with people I adore, and getting paid in the process. My job is amazing and I'm loving every minute of it. It's also very tiring and draining at times, as a significant part of the company sort-of rests on my shoulders; I'm the head of engineering customer support. That is, when customer support can't figure out a problem and need to escalate it to engineering, they escalate it to me.
I'm just a shy introvert with a kind heart and loving mind. I gain pleasure by helping others and routinely attempt to do so. Chivalry isn't dead. I'm more of the kind of person to be more romantic than spontaneous.
I don't drink alcohol due to a number of reasons but I do not mind it if you do. Have fun and drink as you feel. I can be a designated driver.
Just to let you know, I've been fighting a deeply mysterious and frustrating case of chronic pain since January of 2013. There is no known cure, making my prognosis... upsetting. I'm an open book to anyone interested in hearing about it so feel free to ask. The pain is too personal to elaborate on here.
I'm looking for friends to talk to just as much as I'm looking for a significant other. But I am looking for a significant other.
I have always found comfort in writing prose: http://kaedenn.net/writings/wind.html
"My ultimate destination is my absolute expectation of the halting of devastation and granting salvation unto your broken heart. While I wish for this to pass unto death do us part, I know all too well it may happen sooner than that. Even if our time together is brief, I shall be your guardian. I shall be your lover. I shall be your other half via which you desire no other."
-- "Angel", composed on some evening in the first half of September, 2014.
If you'd like to adopt a cat, I can help you out.
In my free time I'm playing one of a number of games including minecraft, starbound, kerbal space program, or working on personal software projects like a true nerd.
Being a pillow for my cat when he decides he wants a warm human-shaped pillow.
Things I'm bad at but enjoy: bowling and darts.
The blue eyes. The compassion and kindness.
Aside from Mythbusters, The Science Channel and Discovery Channel, and a couple shows on Animal Planet (River Monsters, essentially), I don't watch much TV. I'll stick to Youtube.
I now realize how ironic that first sentence sounds.
I like many different kinds of music, from Vienna Teng to Metallica and everything in between. If you got a hold of my playlists, you'd notice things from all sorts of genres. Currently, I'm rather fond of Mumford & Sons, Train, Lifehouse, Onerepublic, Imagine Dragons, and a few others. I crank up the radio every time Radioactive or Demons come on.
Food? Food. Fruit, seafood, pasta, and bread with nice cheeses. And that's just for starters. I would live off sushi and fruit if given the chance. I don't do spicy, though. Sorry.
That I'm still a virgin. Is that too much information? Tell me if it is.
...or, you're interested in someone who loves to teach, has quite a sense of humor, is somewhat introverted, is compassionate almost to a fault, and loves cats!
If you know how to code, stop reading this and message me already! I'm always looking for new friends as well as something more, and so if you know how to write programs, chances are I'd get along with you really well. Or, if you work with computers; having a technical profession is a major bonus for me. Or, if you don't mind someone who really doesn't watch movies.
Oh, and DFTBA. Like a true boss.
