My self-summary
So, I just had one of those eye-opening things happen. My best friend of almost 30 days let me know he's getting separated from his wife. Now, I've had plenty of friends split from their wives. I don't like it but they were never in that deep. My best friend has 2 kids that aren't quite school age. He's now on several anti-depressants.

That being said; I'm quite happy with my life. And I'm fairly terrified of someone ruining it. But, I'll try to keep an open mind.

Anyway, let me see if I can summarize myself.

As I said, I'm happy with my life. I'm very easy going and seem to get along with everyone I meet (even with people I don't necessarily like). I strongly believe in logic and adaptability. Though, that doesn't mean they don't get trumped sometimes. I do tend to be a bit of a romantic. I hate to waste a moment. It's definitely gotten me into and out of some rough and/or great situations.

Right now, the most important thing in my life is my family. They're a lot of fun and very supportive. I absolutely love spending time with my niece. Playing with her is so much fun. People should never stop playing like they're little kids. Incidentally, it's a fantastic workout. I suppose that's something I miss with not having someone around all the time. It's hard to keep active when you live by yourself. Other, random, things I enjoy are video games, board games, anime, various types of movies and music, cars, computers, football and about a million other things.

That's about the best I can do for a summary. You're not going to learn a person in a couple paragraphs. I'll just finish with this:
I've been a lot of different people in my life. Jock, nerd, show-off, wallflower, weakling, tough guy, thoughtful, pigheaded, everything and nothing. I know whom I like being and whom I don't. Unfortunately, we don't really get to choose. It's who you are for those important to you that matters. And as long as they are laughing and smiling, I couldn't be happier. I only wish it didn't take so long for my best friend to figure this out.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
I've been told I'm good at understanding people. I guess that means I'm a good listener and I give good advice. I don't know. I'm just guessing here.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really couldn't say. It's not something I usually ask people I've just met. My dumb beard?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really like to play favorites. I'm not that black and white. There are alot of different factors that weigh in on how much I like something, soooo.......
Stuff I like alot:

Music: Alkaline Trio, DMB, Killswitch Engage, Gustav Holst, Velvet Revolver, Eric Clapton, Old Jazz & Big band type stuff. It all depends on my mood.

Movies: Scent of a Woman, The Hunt for Red October, Duck Soup, Last Man Standing, alot of Sci-fi stuff, Anything by Mel Brooks. I have a decent sized collection.

TV: I don't really watch a whole lot of television. About the only thing I record and watch somewhat regularly is Adventure Time.

Food: I'm very much a Meat & Potatoes kind of guy. Was raised a relatively picky eater (not nearly as bad as my brother or sister). Though, I'm trying to expand. I can trick myself into eating vegetables if they taste like something else. I dig Indian, Chinese, Japanese and most other asian styles. Love me some good BBQ. I also like to cook. Trying new things is fun. UPDATE: turns out I like beets. Who'd a thought!

These could go forever. I'll leave it at this sampling.
Six things I could never do without
My Family (that's a gimme)
My phone (runs my life)
A/C and/or cold weather
Something technical to play with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I live by myself. Have for a while now. Sure would like to have someone around to talk to.....

Some of the more pressing things on my mind are: Buying a house. Affording all the new bills associated with it and not live paycheck to paycheck. I'm not in a big hurry to do that again.

My new job and the friends I left in taking said job (it's a long story).
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. Get some food, hit some golf balls, see a movie, play some video games, drink some beer. You know, whatever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have dimple-like thing going on someplace other than my face. Note: That doesn't exclude my face from the dimple thing. It's just that those aren't much of a secret.
You should message me if
the dimple thing doesn't scare you. HA!

You're willing to take a chance. Seriously, I'm not asking to get married here. Maybe you'll like me. Maybe you won't. You'll never know unless you say something. Lets have a chat. See who I really am. Your certainly not going to get it from that stuff up there^^^.

You prefer guys that wash their hands after going to the bathroom. Most guys I see leaving a public restroom walk straight out the door without even a splash of water on their hands. Here's a hint; if he looks like he spends more time doing his hair and getting dressed than you, he probably avoids sinks like the plague. Think about that the next time you go out to dinner.

You want to have the nerdy version of my profile.
