My self-summary
Liberally-minded, label-averse intellectual. I fancy myself to have the logical mind of a scientist and the passion of an artist, my creativity and impulses being tempered by reason..

I consider myself fairly outgoing and confident (though actually an introvert), friendly, and quick-witted. I hold my friends to a high standard, which leaves me with a small handful, but my generosity with those whom I love is boundless. Humanity and I have a love-hate relationship... I would like to like people, but too many of them suck. I have been dubbed "the friendliest misanthrope." ...but you can call me B00b13Dr46oN. (...if you don't get it you should watch this). I value honesty and believe that communication is the key to any successful relationship, romantic or otherwise.

In a committed (polyamorISH) relationship with this amazing human ----> Jehovatron

What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it, dancing, modeling, watching movies in my down time.. etc etc.

I'm pretty poor, right now... money isn't that important to me. My life's primary goal is to be happy, which means knowing when making money is not worth it. I love what I do and it pays the bills; that's all that I need. Well, that, and the six things listed below :P
I’m really good at
-Staying positive most of the time.
-Being cold in the middle of the summer.
-Picking out awesome t-shirts for other people.
-Overbooking myself and then going crazy because I have too much work.
-Failing at normal humor
-Winning at really offensive humor
The first things people usually notice about me
Friendly demeanor? Positive attitude? Please stop noticing me, it makes me uncomfortable..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Non-fiction: Books about Dance, Creativity, Sustainability, Survivalism, and DIY Handbooks
Fiction: Haven't read much fiction lately, but I'm most interested in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Classics. Currently listening to Brave New World by Huxley.

Movies/Series: Anything that stimulates me intellectually, but also makes sense. I have a soft spot for social commentary in any form and love dystopian future/sci-fi. Loved Fight Club hated Inception. Honestly, though, I'll watch anything once. Other favorites include: Firefly, Braveheart, the LoTR trilogy, The Martian, Armageddon, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride, "V" for Vendetta, Dogma, Patch Adams, Pacific Rim, Tropic Thunder, Borat, Moulin Rouge, Titanic, and Babylon 5. Full Metal Alchemist, Fight Club, Die Hard, Archer, The Dark Knight, Ghost in the Shell, the Bourne trilogy.... I have seen all StarTrek ever produced.
...(cuddling and watching shows/movies is one of my favorite activities).

Music: My library has a wide range of genres from country to rap to industrial to symphonic metal to down-tempo trip hop. My favorite artists are as follows: Evanescence, Linkin Park, Fort Minor, Powerman5000, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, Hanzel und Gretyl, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Within Temptation, Nightwish, The Glitch Mob, Massive Attack, Jonathan Coulton...and others

Food: I'll eat just about anything, but I'm not really into seafood and spicy foods hurt my stomach. My absolute favorite foods are steak and cheese; I'm a glutton for casomorphins.

Games: Portal, Mirror's Edge, Artemis, Braid, GTA 4, Minecraft, StarCraft and StarCraft II, Sniper Elite, Puzzle Kombat, Age of Empires (Rise of Rome expansion), chess, Magic the Gathering, Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Cards Against Humanity...

The six things I could never do without
Dan, our furry-children, technology, a creative outlet, intelligence/intellectual stimulation, meat and other delicious animal products.

Today, I decided that my favorite things are:
Going out for coffee.
Long night-time walks in the Summer.
Being barefoot.
Spending time with friends around the fire-pit.
Cuddles (from humans and from kitties).
Quietly appreciating beautiful sunsets.
Working - because I do what I love for a living... and
Really awesome thunderstorms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering if my profile suffers from TL;DR.

Market economics as they relate to online dating. How hard it is to be a "buyer" rather than a "supplier." I've lived on both sides and it's made me very aware of why things are the way they are and also the disconnect between men and women when it comes to this arena. (For instance, women want personalized messages, but don't respond to most of the messages that they receive - even the personalized ones - and rarely message first. Men send out messages, don't get responses, and realize that it's less depressing and more effective to create a really good copy/paste so that they can reach more people with less effort and emotional investment).

How, when I first joined this site, the internet was still in an age when people would say "brb" if they were going to be "afk" and not just leave you hanging for hours, wondering if they'd ever be back.

I dream about traveling around the US and the rest of the world, seeing extraordinary natural sites, meeting interesting people. I also fantasize about settling down in a small home, living sustainably off-the-grid, supported by nature and ingenuity. These are both things that I would like to do with my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
GM-ing my Serenity RPG, or participating in some other game-night festivities.

Potentially listening to "Tales from the Afternow" in the dark. .....not really, I just wanted to share that link. If you're a fan of dystopian future/sci-fi and you like audiodramas you should check it out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss having a girlfriend.

I care about people. Sometimes too much, usually too soon, and definitely with too little regard for how caring might end up affecting me. I love deeply.

I cry during the sad parts of movies. Sometimes, I cry during the happy parts too.
You should message me if
...you're the kind of person who enjoys long, mostly-hypothetical discussions.
...you're the kind of person who thinks that camping out of a van for a week is an adventure.
...you are not opposed to meeting up soon-ish rather than later-ish

Say hi. I promise I'm easier to talk to than you think.
