I think I'm up front in how I present myself- what you see is what you get. That said, what you get is a sweet and handsome aging bachelor with a capacity for limited intellectual conversation and a flair for the comical. I've been told that I make for a great set of ears on boring, lonely nights.
I also admit that I'm not as outdoorsy, artistic, or super motivated as a lot of people claim to be and perhaps are. I walk, mass transit, bike instead of drive and I'm not the type of person who views their job as a career or an extension of their personality. I'm not saying that I've given up trying to improve myself, but I know who I am and the things I expect from life.
I am a gamer, a bookworm, a scribe and comedian at heart. My idea of outdoor activity is a good long hike through the city just to see what I can see. I'm not the type of guy who is particularly inclined to travel around the world or learn to speak Swahili on a whim, but I'm not adverse. I'm just a city guy, looking for a city girl to do shots and go see a show with, a friend to play board games and share a bong with, or a lady who looks forward to cuddling on the couch and watching horrible movies together. Dull, perhaps, but I have learned over time that excitement will seek you out whether you like it or not.

I live simply and don't demand much and lo and behold- most of my dreams have been fulfilled. I have a roof over my head and food in my belly. I have a loving family and quality friends who care whether or not they see me. I have a steady if non-glamorous job and the ability to have fun when I can. If these dreams seem pedestrian to you, then perhaps I am not the droid that you are looking for.

2. Music. Love going out to see live music or just bopping around the house to the boom box.
3. Marijuana. If weed's not your choice, that's OK. It is certainly mine however and is part of the overall package. Caveat Emptor!
4. Gaming. Board games, video games, crossword puzzles, sports... I am willing to wager that I'm always fond of a game.
5. Comedy. A good comedian to me is akin to a virtuoso musician or operatic diva. Which is to say they cost a lot to go see.
6. Sex (see Comedy).
7. The ability to count.
you can hum the enchanting Torgo theme.
you know that the best thing to have with beer is another beer.
you disagree and say weed is better because then you don't need the beer.
you like to make fun of movies as you watch them or you like to make up your own lyrics to songs as you hear them.
you know what a meeple is. Definitely getting bonus points there.
you have made it this far... you're almost there.
you don't know how to operate a keyboard, although how you'll do so is a mystery to me.
