My self-summary
It's a challenging task to write about myself. I've never really been one to put myself in the limelight in attempt to describe who I am on a dating website, but here it goes. In my perspective, I seek the experience, that beautiful and exhilarating connection between two individuals. Life has been a roller coaster of ups and downs for me, but I try to smile at the good moments and learn from the ones that didn't work out too well.

I enjoy both adventure and simplicity. The extravagant pleasures of a night out quell my thirst for adventure; however, a quiet night in reading a book, sharing stories and laughing next to an open fire, or simply enjoying the company of another while strolling through a park also appeal to me. Sharing experiences and having the courage to try something new or different are characteristics that I value, and also look for in a partner.

I express a genuine care for those that I love and try my best to be there for them. I commend those who go out of their way to help another. I admit that I make mistakes and have challenges that I'm trying to overcome, but I sincerely make an effort to learn from them. I wouldn't want someone to impress me, and I wouldn't want to impress others and engage in superficial or shallow conversations.

I think that being ourselves is an integral part of a first encounter. Perfection shouldn't be a goal, and I would be lying if I said that there is such thing as a perfect person. I would rather meet someone with room for growth than someone who already has it all. I don't know everything, and I don't want to know everything. I want to learn, no doubt, but there's a beauty in the unknown that I think stirs a curiosity in us all.

I suppose some people tend to describe me as the cool nerd, and over the years, I have grown quite fond of that title. I'm typically not the initiator of conversation, but once we start sharing our interests, it's hard for me to stop. I enjoy maturity and intellect, but also find the time to be whimsical and silly. I'm a kid at heart, and I don't ever want to change that. It's a balance.

Playfulness, humbleness, openness, humor, wit, kindness, honesty, understanding, and romance all attract me. I suppose you could say that I'm definitely a more long-term relationship kind of guy. I have a lot of love to give and share to those open enough to receive it. I've been in two long-term relationships in the past, and through them I've learned what I really want - an understanding and supportive guy to come home to and deeply love, even when times get tough.

I'm future-oriented, optimistic, and greatly appreciate genuine conversations with people who have different interests and hobbies. There's always something new to learn and appreciate, especially if it's important to those I love. Life is always full of surprises, and I'm excited for what the future might hold. I like surprises actually. I've taken some time to become more self-aware about my feelings and goals, and now I feel ready for my next chapter.

Let's make a toast to potential, be grateful of our opportunities, and make the most out of everything we do.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work full-time in the field of higher education as a student affairs professional. I'm also pursuing an M.Ed in Higher Education degree part-time. I hope to continue gaining experience in the field I work in, but I'm honestly still trying to figure out what I truly want to do within student affairs. In simple terms, I'm still discovering my career passions within this industry. For now though, I'm enjoying my current position. Outside of work, I try to find the time to relax, watch movies, read, write, play video games, eat tons of delicious sushi, have fun outdoors, and enjoy life to its fullest.
I’m really good at
Dance Dance Revolution. That's the first thing that comes to my mind. Yes, I'm the guy you see at arcades tapping his feet really fast on that crazy light-up machine. Well, that's a random fact. I like to think that I'm skilled at communicating my feelings and making an effort to resolve conflicts. I was a Resident Assistant in college so I feel that I've gain some mediation practice during that time.

Some of my colleagues note that I do a great job recognizing the accomplishments of others. I'm a pretty warm and fuzzy person. I think I'm also "good" at being playfully silly, getting lost, managing my finances, forgetting things when I need them, competitive video games, procrastinating, listening to others, worrying too much, and making cocktails. Note that not everything is positive; I'm not trying to impress, but simply trying to share who I am.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some people say that they notice my smile or my enthusiastic personality first. Everyone notices different things though, and I don't have enough assessment data to give you a conclusive answer about a specific trend. More research will have be conducted with a larger sample size (thank you Research Methods). You tell me what you think if we decide to meet each other.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Though it would complete my profile if I listed my interests in the above categories, I will leave this section somewhat blank. We all have history, but there's always more to write in our blank pages of life. I will gladly share these interests with you in person if the opportunity arises. But just to give you a small sense of who I am, I'll list three from each category:

The End of Night: Searching for Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light


American Horror Story
The Legend of Korra

Owl City
The Killers
Colbie Caillat

Pad Thai
Chicken Tenders (dipped in buffalo sauce)
The six things I could never do without
The list below comprises of both concepts and tangible things that hold a lot of value in my life, both literally (*cough*, number six) and figuratively:

1.) Consistent Open Communication (I cannot stress this enough)
2.) The ability to learn
3.) Beaches, parks, and nature trails
4.) Cocktails and blended drinks
5.) Caring friends and family
6.) Compounding interest (especially while being young)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the meaning of life, the laws of the universe, what's really under my bed, internet memes, societal trends, pop culture, video games, literature, the wonders of nature, and whether or not my cat really wants to rule the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
dancing in my underwear to some uplifting pop tunes, out having a blast with friends, laying low and watching a movie while snuggled up with my cat, quietly reading a new book, eating at someplace new, and much more. I feel that there's no typical Friday night to me, though I'd like to think that Netflix is often times part of it. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terribly afraid of butterflies and moths. Cue the childhood traumatic experience video. Oh wait, I don't have that? Just take my word for it!
You should message me if
you appreciate both the highs and lows of life, have an interest in learning something new, embrace differences, have an ambition to create success within your life while encouraging it in others, and see the potential in opportunities that lead to fun, positive experiences.

Oh, and my name is Kevin. If you happen to read my profile in its entirely or scrolled long enough to catch it and greet me by my name, I'd be fairly impressed.
