My self-summary
Well to be honest, I'm fairly new at this whole dating thing. Shrotly after college I got my commison in the navy and then served overseas in Japan- so I've been quite busy. Now that I have some time to myself, I'd like to invest in some new relationships, both friendly and romantic.

I am not even going to try to pretend I'm a normal guy. While I do act like your general masculine ex-navy buff with a degree in fine arts, I'm pretty quirky. I play video games, jump in rain puddles, run town-lake with the dogs, bake exciting treats, speak Japanese fluently, enjoy getting my hands dirty in the yard, and practice archery in my own range :). I used to swim competitively, but now it's just a hobby. I also am on a crew team currently and play volleyball.

Just messaging and saying hi will be a lot better and more informative than reading some hastily-written self-description. I'm just looking for a normal guy that can deal with a lot of excitement and maybe some awkward charm. Don't be shy- we can all use new friends.

I love to cook so all kinds of food, but Italian is my favorite. I also love me some French food especially New Orleans style food. Thai and Japanese food is a close second, followed by Indian and Mexican. I'm a huge baker and am always trying something new. Lady Baltimore is my favorite cake and Bananas Foster is my favorite dessert.
Six things I could never do without
See I take this too literally, I instantly think things like food, air and water, but I'm pretty sure it means things you prefer to have. For me this list is things I have been without that I have a new appreciation for (Go Navy!);

1.) Music and Art
2.) The Internet
3.) Sleep (8 hours preferred)
4.) Exercise
5.) Pets
6.) Freedom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
if I had super powers. The perfect society. What to do in a zombie Apocalypse. How to build an ideal world. Equal rights. Inappropriate things. What I'm going to cook next. Work and what I am doing with my life. Where my keys are...
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a real typical Friday night, it ranges from going out with friends and dancing, playing pool with the guys at a dive, staying in and playing video games or reading a book, or going to sleep early to go hiking or exploring Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm incredibly shy around a guy I like but act very confident otherwise. I love the sound of a hairdryer. I have ADD worse than a squirrel. My weakness is popcorn. And I'm the worlds worst speller. I once failed out of a spelling bee because I misspelled 'Banana'. So I apologies if messages from me seem like they were written by an 8 year old (which I also have the handwriting of)
You should message me if
are an athletic dude and are willing to battle pirates with me on a semi-annual basis.
