Hi, my name is Jerome. ISFJ
Some Virgo traits that apply to me are reliability, modesty, meticulousness, and being overly reserved.
Year of the Dog traits that describe me best are honest, kind, cautious and loyal.
I was raised a Southern boy, on a farm with animals and such. The love of outdoors and animals is ingrained in me. I like to fish and camp. I live in the back woods of Eatonton, where I get no phone signal nor internet (I kinda like it that way, more time to read and write).
That being said:
I'm a BIG Geek, and I am very proud of it. I bask in a a love of games (Roleplaying, Video & Board), comics, books, anime, guns, etc. The ONLY sport I like is MMA, and a few Olympic sports. I've been to a few geek conventions and even cosplayed. I'm a writer. I've had my comic book published.
I am very shy. When I try to talk to new people, especially women, I get all flustered and bogged down with anxiety. Kind of like Raj on 'The Big Bang Theory'. But once I know someone, I open up.
(This my religious disclaimer. I don't discuss religion except with people I know and only when asked.)
I do believe in God. And that Jesus fellow. But I do not go to church. I do not preach. I do not judge. I think God is agape, pure love, and loves us all, flaws and all. I have friends from many religions and some without. I am a LBGT ally.
Some Odds and Ends:
I'm a cat guy. I am not into going to clubs; though I don't mind a pub then and again. I'm just started using Rosetta Stone to try and learn Spanish. I find tattoos to be a turn on. I've been to 6 States, but want to visit more. I really enjoy cooking. I have, cooked food that people have literally fought over.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR:
I have reached a point in my life where I am lonely. I desire companionship.
I want someone to be with. I want someone that will be with me on good days, and even more so on bad ones. Someone who will talk with me when I'm sad, smile with me when I'm happy, laugh AT me when I'm being silly.
I want someone who is smart, quick with their wit and that I can geekout (play games, watch nerdy TV, Ren Fest, Geek Conventions) with.
I want someone to hold hands with when we walk, and someone who doesn't mind a good cuddle in front of the TV. I want someone to share my passions with, and who can become my passion.
I'd like to go back to school, and maybe get a Library Sciences Degree. But honestly, It's not needed to become a manager in our library system. And Library Manager is my main goal at this point.
I try to spend as much time as I can with my friends. My friends, I feel, help make me who I am; you are the company you keep. Each of my friends has a way of making me feel like a smarter, cooler and an all around better person.
Favorites that I've ever made are:
Mango Chutney Stuffed Pork Loin &
Hot Wings (see the garlic comment above).
I'm good at learning Board and Card games. I pick up the rules fairly quickly. A single hand or round and I've usually got the gist. (Okay, that's a corny one...whatever)
I'm fairly adept at most things tech, I cannot build a computer, but give me 10 minutes or so and I can normally have a competent understanding of an OS for PC, tablet, phone or most other programs.
But because of my stature I have been refereed to as "Teddy Bear" or "Hug Toy".

I'll try ANYTHING once. I love hot foods. I love most foods (hence my weight problem). Favorites are Italian, Cajun and Creole (yes there is a difference), Greek. I love the flavor profile of Chicken Vindaloo, Palak Paneer and Naan. But my all time favorite food is Japanese food. Sushi is my Ambrosia.
All these lists are short and compacted, there is not enough room to list ALL my favorites.

Sometimes it's about friends, movies, food and Life. Other times it about loneliness, heartbreak, religion and prose. Some day's it's not thinking, it's just action; doing my job, driving home, watching some tube and going to sleep. Other nights it's about nothing more then the awesome distance to the nearest star. I have ADHD so my thoughts tend to wonder...Ohhh, a butterfly...... ummm, where was I?
Honestly though, I'm really shy, so I very rarely message first.
