Dating's great, but honestly, I'm not very emotionally available lately. Really, I just want to meet people to have drinks, go to concerts, discuss philosophy, and play video games with.
If you can make it through all that and still want to date me, maybe you can talk me into it.
I play a lot of music - I play drums primarily, but I also play guitar and even sing on occasion. I've been in a bunch of bands, played in a load of shows, and recorded and produced a lot of original music. I dabble in all kinds of other creative ventures, including writing, photography, and film.
But mostly I play video games. I'm a DotA fiend foremost, though I play a fair amount of other stuff, mostly RPGs and beat 'em ups. And music games, naturally!
Here's a bunch of guitar covers:
Or you can listen to some of my original music, if you like: http://soundcloud.com/fmat40kd/
I always win at board games. My friends like to team up on me to keep me in check.
I hear a lot about how lanky and young-looking I am, too. Yeah, I know, I'm a living anime protagonist.

Woefully short list of TV shows I like:
Game of Thrones, Penn and Teller's Bullshit!, Arrested Development, Top Gear, Breaking Bad, How TV Ruined Your Life, Firefly, House
But there's only two shower stalls. And so, I realize: I cannot exit this bathroom unseen.
So with a fresh nothing-to-lose attitude, I casually walked out of the stall and gave a salutatory "'sup?", to which they responded by making really loud screeching noises and sprinting out of the bathroom like a bad sitcom. Luckily, they took it in good humor, but I didn't hear the end of it from my floormates for a while.
That was an arbitrary example, but the moral of the story is that I'm mostly an open book.
As long as we're on the subject, I guess I should talk a little about "looking for: casual sex" (admit it, you totally noticed):
Sex is not something I actively seek or require for fulfillment. I take it as it comes, and I let it unfold at a natural pace. I'm open to no-strings when it feels right, with a person I'm comfortable with. I'm a bit of a flirt by nature, but don't let that fool you - I'm not easy.
I also have a non-platonic crush on Neil Patrick Harris.
Okay, that's enough. Need to leave some mystery.
If you play an instrument and want to jam. I love to jam.
