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.

Note: I'm looking to actually meet people. Like, in person, in the real world. Not interested in an online pen pal.
What I’m doing with my life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKlDBi0cyIA

Being an attorney. Trying to lead a healthy lifestyle without being an obnoxious tool about it. Running, playing sports whenever I can. Being slightly neurotic (in a good, "Seinfeld-y" way....I think).

Like sports (watching and playing) and working out, but definitely don't identify with the stereotypical jock/"bro" culture. Also have many "artsy"/intellectual/nerdy interests, while managing to not vehemently hate sports and physical activities. I think that it's possible (and good thing) to not view the two as mutually exclusive.

Looking for someone to inspire me to recreate this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNj9bXKGOiI

TABOO ALERT: I both own a tv AND enjoy watching it. This is apparently an extremely unusual, uncultured and uncool activity now. That said, all of my tv watching pretty much falls into 4 categories:

1) Movies - unashamed lover of movies, good and bad
2) Dorky/Nerdy/Educational shows, documentaries and news - think Science, National Geographic, History channels, Al Jazeera America, etc. (the actual nerdy/education shows, not the dumb reality shows that are on those networks)
3) On Demand/Netflix - stand up comedy, Comedy Central shows, IFC shows, etc.
4) Sports - casually, not obsessively
I’m really good at
Living a structured, disciplined life. I guess it's kind of a boring 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.

Making pies (random, yes...but true)
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).

The six things I could never do without
family/friends (obvious), gym/running/sports, movies, music, Vitamix, pizza (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.

We got no food. We got no jobs. Our pets' HEADS are falling off!!!!!

Also, it's kind of hot in these rhinos......
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.

I do like going out and doing stuff too obviously. 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 want to. And you think that we have some things in common.

Also, if you're honest, genuine, have a good sense of humor (immensely important), can be absurd and weird, can laugh at yourself, can roll with the punches, and don't take life (or yourself) too seriously.

Bonus points if the phrase "Too Much Tuna" and/or the names Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland mean anything to you.
