My self-summary
I grew up in Southport, NC well Long Beach (I think it's called Oak Island now) but went to school in Southport when I was a kid. I'd love to end up back there, at some point in my life. Right now, there are a few possibilities to where I may end up, so changing my location will reflect on that, just checking out what's in the area. I will update this section whenever it becomes more permanent where I will end up. Don't be shy and say hi! My current location is Kentucky, for those wondering.

It's really hard to do this part. as It makes me feel as if I'm being full of myself. I am a bit shy (yes being my age and still shy is kinda bad I suppose). However, once I get comfortable, things get better from there.

I watch football from time to time every season. I'm a huge Panthers fan.

I game. Whether it be video, board or cards. It is who I am. Grew up around it and it is a part of my life. I fully tend to take up streaming when I have the chance to. No this doesn't mean I need to "grow up" and it also doesn't mean I'll ignore anyone over a game.

I am pretty much the epitome of "Don't judge a book by its cover". It has taken me a long time to realize that about myself. I'm a smart, caring, funny, hell just about a great mixture of all good qualities rolled up into one! I'm not going to lie and say I'm perfect, far from it, but despite all of my shortcomings, I'm just a pretty awesome dude (topping it off with a nice blend of book smarts and common sense, however some things I do make it seem I lack both!)

I firmly believe in establishing a friendship first and seeing where that leads.
What I’m doing with my life
The parent I was caring for passed away recently. I miss my mom a lot and even though I thought I was ok, I'm not. However, I really am trying to move on and to the future.

I'm on the track to actually taking control of my life again. The journey will be long and hard, but I know it'll pay off in the end. For once, I'm excited to finally conquer the fears that have weighed me down for so long (except clowns, spiders and heights. Those are still the 3 nopes).
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Whether it is intentional or not, I can't tell you. Most of the time it's spur-of-the-moment comments that cause people to fall out laughing. Main thing is, my brain doesn't use the common sense filter half the time, so it's always an adventure to see what spews forth.

I'm also really good at listening. It's such a rare quality, I know. But I enjoy listening more than I do talking.

Apparently I'm NOT good at writing opening conversation starters lol
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair then my eyes. Or is it the other way around? Sometimes it is that I generally have some kind of unique/odd gaming/geek shirt on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My taste in books varies. I really enjoyed reading the DragonLance series. Jurassic Park was also a real good book. Haven't really had anything interesting pop out at me lately, however.

Movies: I like some comedies, action, although I'm sporadic on the horror. I like horror, not gore. I feel like ever since Saw and movies like that, people have relied on shock value for horror. Like "Oh let's have all this blood and guts spurting everywhere, that's scary!" No, that's just sick. I'm old school when it comes to horror. Letting your mind scare the bajeebus out of you instead of being told when to be scared. But that's getting off track! I also enjoy the Fantasy movies like Willow, Conan, Legend, etc. I grew up in the 80s where those movies were kinda prominent.

Music: I'm open about music, with the exception of country and real hardcore rap. I just don't do well with either of those categories.

Foods: Practically anything other than what I don't like. I hate onions and peppers and no there is nothing "wrong" with me.
Six things I could never do without
1. Food. 2. Air (as long as Spaceballs don't try to steal it and make us pay for canned air!) 3. My music. 4. Computer. 5. Food (so nice I listed it twice) 6. I know there's something else, can't quite put my finger on it... Hmmm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If people actually read profiles or just see a picture and go "yep" or "nope". How many profiles are actually real people.

If I ever hit the lottery, who would really want to get to know me for my awesome personality, or would see $$$. Believe me, I can weed them out. :p (Oops, was that one of the wrong red flags to post on a dating profile because a Buzzfeed article said so?? My bad)

My brain goes 100 mph. Sometimes I think about literally nothing, other times I think so hard I over-analyze every single little thing. So I guess you can say that sometimes I can think of everything and nothing... all at once? Can't tell you how many times I've talked myself out of situations, with mixed results, because I just ran it through my mind 1,000 times.
On a typical Friday night I am
As it stands right now? Probably gaming or figuring if I want to stream. Checking out the new "like" system on here by clicking like on random people. You never know what may come of it! Sometimes I forget who I have clicked on, so apologies if it pops up I've viewed your profile more than once. That's one of the things I do dislike about OKCupid, but I guess it also weeds out the people who do it profusely trying to be slick. SOMEONE TAKE THE APP AWAY FROM ME. Seriously, I just find myself bored, swiping. That thing is dangerous man!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would say a few things but that defeats the purpose of getting to know someone if they ruin all the mystery.

ok fine, I'll give you a freebie: I'm afraid of clowns. Wait no, I already admitted to that. Hmmm. We will just have to leave that under the TBD column.
You should message me if
You survived my novel of a profile and decide that I'm worth getting to know. If you're an uber nerd like me and like to do nerd things together sometime. Also if you genuinely want to talk to each other and not just gonna ghost or anything like that.
The two of us
