My self-summary
Well, I'm a laid back kind of guy who can have as much fun camping as I do cuddled up on the couch watching a movie. I like reading, but I never seem to fit in as much time for it as I did when I was back in high school. I don't tend to watch much TV these days, but sports (especially hockey) can draw me in, as can shows related to science and history. I'm an unabashed geek who enjoys tabletop wargaming as well as pen and paper RPGs (see below for the list). Then comes the normal gaming, I'm more of a PC gamer these days than I used to be, but that doesn't mean you won't find me with a controller in my hand.

Beyond that I'm the sort of person who likes to take things slow in a relaxed atmosphere with a few good friends. The kind who knows the value of a good meal and great conversation. I'm not the beer type, but if you like to have a sip now and again I'll gladly crack a cider and toast to something random. That's a bit about me, but it doesn't say much about where I'm at, so let's fix that.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I work in Walmart's deli, it's not a career but it pays the bills. I'm looking for better or towards heading back to school to become a teacher as ways to move forward. I could be doing better overall, but I have a goal and I'm staying positive.

I'm currently looking for my own little bachelor pad. I love roomies and cheaper rent, but personal space is important. I'd consider moving in with somebody or into a new place, if the right situation came along.

The TLDR version is that I'm happy and content where I'm at and looking to add to that with the right person rather than needing a change to feel whole.
I’m really good at
Thinking through problems and coming up with answers. True story, I once invented the drum brake and was super proud until I realized that it had been around forever... I like knowing things and the best way to do that is thinking them through and looking at all the angles. I can fall into random subjects and spend hours looking into them.

I also like to be the guy people can come to with problems. People are always surprised when I guy that might normal talk your ear off settles down and really listens.

I can cook from a recipe and have it turn out the way it should. I can help with loads of basic computer issues. I'm not overly handy but I know my way around basic tools. I'm the kind of guy who reads directions before doing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my awesome beard, the fact that I'm not a slim person, or that I can usually hold a decent conversation. Really though, I think you'd have to meet me to really get a feel for me.

New things to see and learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I'm into at the moment. I tend to zero in on things, research the hell out of them and then move on. Right now it's finding work and making this profile better, in a few minutes it could be trying to figure out what type of Goanna wandered through our camp this past weekend.

Beyond that I think about the usual stresses of life. Money vs. bills, can I afford to take another run at post secondary, why am I still living with a roommate at 26. I try to keep my mind more upbeat than all that though and usually I'm succeeding more than failing!
On a typical Friday night I am
Hang out at home chilling, maybe out chucking dice with friends, or possibly out at a movie. Depends on cash flow and what other people are doing. I'm not the type to fly solo, but if I can make plans with the right people I'd rather be out than in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kinky as anything. I identify as a switch, but I tend to take the submissive role. I don't need a partner to be into BDSM, but it would certainly be cool.
You should message me if
By this stage, I think you might already have your mind made up so if you'd like to message me feel free, if not thanks for stopping by and I hope you find your match.
