My self-summary
Tall, quiet (In big groups) greater listener. I believe listening and asking questions is the best way to get to know someone whether or not they are a potential mate or just someone you've met on the street.

A big part of my personal philosophy is to treat people as I would like to be treated in any given situation. It is only fair.

I consider myself a cynical optimist or optimistic cynic. What that means is that I recognize that there are a lot things wrong in the world, but at the same time, I like to work through the bad along with the good.

That can come across as being lay-back to a fault, but its always surprising when I find the things that are present, that I didn't notice them before. Every time I think I've found that last piece of the puzzle called "Self", I find there's a whole different section to complete
What I’m doing with my life
In many ways I could say I am successful because I have a job and I am in good health and I am maintaining that. But beyond maintenance of the status quo, I am still searching for answers thankfully many of them can be answered by the Bible. Yes I'm one of those people. Faith is a strong influence in my life.
I’m really good at
Knowing a little bit about everything (And yet knowing nothing at all). Remaining inquisitive, keeps the mind fresh and I love learning new trivia.

I am also good at getting things off of high shelves and having people mistake me as an employee in every store I've ever been in. (Whats wrong with wearing a lanyard? Though I'm beginning to realize the impractical nature of having a bajillion knick knacks and crap hang off you neck. It gets stowed in my pocket more often than not now.)

On another note, I'm really good at looking at multiple sides of an argument. Though I must admit playing devils advocate with yourself can be kind of odd. I will rectify that by meeting more people. Ooooh sounds like a New Years resolution.
The first things people usually notice about me
Phenotypically I am just as profile says I am. Tall, of African descent, other than that I would say quiet but not not exactly what you would call shy.

I am not fearful of conversation and I'm generally willing to talk about just about anything with the ability to make references to said conversation.

Beyond that, I'm not sure what else would be noticeable without further investigation. The combination of the quiet and the tall give of a initial sense of aloofness that many aren't willing to transverse.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are Thrillers and Sci Fi/Fantasy. When those genres are combined, it is all the better. In terms of movies I enjoy action films, thrillers, and romantic comedies. My favorite television shows fall into those categories as well. I like crime drama's like the various Law and Orders (SVU is the best of the lot), NCIS, Criminal Minds. In terms of music I like a bit of everything but I tend to listen to mainly Alternative Rock, R&B, and hip hop. I don't have a favorite food, but I'm always willing to try something new.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet (I can go without it, but it feels awkward.)

Companionship (Talking to a volley ball on a desert island doesn't sound like a good time.)

Thought provoking conversation (Maybe I should give that volley ball another chance, sometimes people hurt my brain.)

Good Food (I'll try anything once. Who knows whats good, but I'm willing to find out)

My Family ( They annoy me to no end but their mine)

Music ( Thankfully music is everywhere)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world is the way it is. Many things can be answered through research and while enjoyable, that only seems be part of the puzzle. Religion is another avenue, but that brings up another many questions. Balancing cynicism for the present with optimism for the future are big parts of the same coin.
On a typical Friday night I am
Counting it as already being Saturday Morning without all the cartoons. Its usually free so I'm game for just about anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have it all together yet. I know shocking right? Honestly I don't have a lot I keep private because generally people don't ask. If you want to know something about me, go ahead. You'll likely have it answered. That's more interesting than asking about weather or how a day went.
You should message me if
...You are living in the DC area (distance is a variable, so I may not reply to someone outside of the DMV) and feel as though the experience is passing you by like I do. Even if you don't, share the wealth.

I want to meet someone who wishes to move to the next stage but doesn't expect to get there immediately.

Let's trade some messages and get to know one another ( And by message, I mean more than a single sentence.). These percentages and profiles are just speculation of the real person behind the message.

I am just as open for new friends as I am for a significant other.
