My self-summary
I've asked some close friends to describe me: I'm kind, sweet, affectionate, and know how to make someone laugh. I've always loved maths and physics, and was always bored by the curriculum until I reached college. I also used to teach, and am used to teaching advanced concepts to people who know exactly nothing about them. I've gone through formal training in teaching and I really enjoy it.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time software engineer getting paid a handsome salary to do what I love and work with people I like. I can't ask for anything more than that.

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.
I’m really good at
Teaching, listening, and supporting. Being someone people can talk to.

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 first things people usually notice about me
Facial hair. I rarely spend my time clean shaven; I've been told I look better with a mane. I don't mind spending my days with a bit of scruff, if you're in to that kind of thing. I can also be shaven clean, but others seem to prefer otherwise.

The blue eyes. The compassion and kindness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a geek/nerd/whatever you wish to call it, so you can probably guess: The Matrix, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc. What Dreams May Come will always be my favorite movie. I love anything and everything Pixar. I love almost everything Disney (that I haven't seen a thousand times already). I don't watch horror, suspense, or scary movies. Sorry.

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.
Six things I could never do without
Minus the obvious (family, friends, food, water, shelter) and in no general order: my cats, education, laptop, an income, my amazing job, and a car.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My incredible kitty, Tux. My job. My future. My efforts in looking for a relationship. The people involved therein.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking about people, places, emotions, and relationships: introvert stuff. Relaxing. Being my kitten's pillow. Sometimes I'm still at work if we have an urgent customer-facing issue. Other times I'm at home relaxing, playing computer games (on Steam, so that's a good way to chat if you dislike OkC's messaging and would like to talk more).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you love to watch movies and can't imagine a relationship without movies, then I may not be your kind of person. I have a very small list of movies I can watch; I need to be careful with ones I haven't seen. I won't go into the details here, but you're welcome to ask.

That I'm still a virgin. Is that too much information? Tell me if it is.
You should message me if
...you got this far!

...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.
The two of us
