My self-summary
Nothing like online dating to crush your self esteem and devastate your self confidence! I'm 96% kidding. Seriously though, I've had success in the past meeting some cool people on these sites, so I'd say that the positives outweigh the negatives. It's actually a pretty good way to meet new people.
What I’m doing with my life
(9-5 life) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKlDBi0cyIA

Working. Trying to lead a healthy lifestyle without being an obnoxious tool about it. Gym, running, playing sports whenever I can. Being slightly neurotic (think George Costanza).

Basically, going to work, not being at work, going to the gym, doing some boring adult crap, and sometimes doing fun stuff. Hopefully not too boring, I just don't see the point of lying and exaggerating to make my life sound more interesting than it really is.

Oh and the gym and fitness stuff is just health/mental therapy related. I definitely don't identify with dipshit "bro" culture and couldn't get "huge" even if I wanted to.
I’m really good at
Living a structured, disciplined life. Not the most exciting answer, but I think that I'm pretty responsible when it comes to big picture things like work, health and interpersonal skills. The Golden Rule (i.e. treating people the way I'd want to be treated).

Bad puns and dumb jokes.

Pop culture references from the 90's and early 2000's that often elicit blank stares and puzzled looks.

Making pies (seriously)
The first things people usually notice about me
Other than obvious things like physical appearance, probably sense of humor? And that I actually listen when someone is talking instead of just waiting for my turn to talk (hate when people do that).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A sampling for each:

Books: autobiographies/biographies, nonfiction, science, history, anything that sounds interesting or funny.

TV: Comedy Bang Bang, @midnight, Kroll Show, Drunk History, Tosh.0, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, stand up comedy, Making a Murderer, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, sports, The Cosmos, Into the Wormhole, The Universe, history documentaries/shows, pretty much anything nerdy/geeky on the Science, History, National Geographic and Discovery Channels.

Music: Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures, Kyuss, Ben Folds, Brad Sucks, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Pelican, Mastodon, Between the Buried and Me, Baroness, Priestess, Wolfmother, Rage Against the Machine, Beastie Boys, 90's/early 2000's rap, 60's/Motown, 80's pop, Michael Jackson, Beach Boys, Chicago, Billy Joel, Earth Wind and Fire, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, JJ Johnson, classic rock, classical music.

Podcasts: Nerdist, WTF, Comedy Bang Bang, Fitzdog Radio, Race Wars, You Made It Weird, Joe Rogan Experience.

Food: Yes. Pretty healthy most of the time, but definitely love crushing some pizza, burgers and ice cream. Italian, Mexican, Chinese, it's all good. Love it all. Breakfast food might be the best thing known to man.
Six things I could never do without
family/friends (obvious), gym/running/sports, movies, music, Vitamix, pizza and ice cream (the opposite of a Vitamix)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The events of the day, hardcore self psychoanalysis, big philosophical questions, why am I not eating pizza right now, nature vs. nurture, how to become self actualized, why is that guy at work such a douche, is our reality really just a computer simulation, seriously why is that guy at work such a douche, the meaning of life, how zippers work. It's a mixed bag.
On a typical Friday night I am
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htZRuAAFcas - This. Except sitting on my couch watching movies/Netflix and eating pizza instead.

Obviously I do like going out and doing stuff sometimes, but I'm admittedly a bit of a homebody at this point. More often than not, after a long week I prefer just relaxing at home with some good food and few drinks. Not so much into fighting crowds, and yelling ("talking") to people over obnoxiously loud music in packed bars anymore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Today at work a guy used the term "bandwidth" in reference to his availability to help on a project ("I'd like to help, but I don't know if I have the bandwidth"). The resulting douche chills almost shook me out of my chair.
You should message me if
You think that we have some things in common, have the same sense of humor, and haven't concluded that I'm the most boring and uninteresting person on the planet (a distinct possibility).

Also, if you're honest, genuine, kind, can be silly and weird, can laugh at yourself, can roll with the punches, and don't take life (or yourself) too seriously.
