My self-summary
I'm not particularly adept at "selling myself", mostly because sales involve no small amount of bullshit. A synopsis would be that I'm unflinchingly myself.

I'm employed, steadily but not braggably.
I own a car, reliable but not a status symbol or reflection of my penis
I rent with roommates, not glamorous but I have my space and I'm pretty comfortable I can afford hobbies without starving.
I have no more bullet points

I'm really not as robotic as this sounds, I just figured I shouldn't bury any potential dealbreakers several paragraphs down. I have one of the best and darkest senses of humor ever. I find myself hilarious
What I’m doing with my life
I drank my way out of school the first go around, now I'm going back in the sociology dept. I figure maybe that can get me a desk job somewhere, but my idea is it'll further my pipe dream of feeding myself with my writing. I've got a couple novels and more ideas in various pieces. Beyond that, my mother has had some medical issues this year that require part of my free time dedicated to her care taking.
I’m really good at
Useless trivia. I've got a wide array of absolutely pointless factoids in my head, and I'm always looking for more. I'm practicing traditional archery, I wouldn't say I'm good yet but considering how few people actually own one, I'd say I'm better with a recurve than most people.
The first things people usually notice about me
You look just like *insert bald white public figure here*. Not all bald white guys look the same, thats racist.

Also, I get a bizarre number of compliments on my pants. Apparently I have impeccable taste in pants.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is where I thrive. I'm the same 14 year old fantasy and sci-fi nerd at heart.

Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
British panel comedy. Forget what you think you know about British comedy, there's some brilliant trivia and wit without America's puritanical censorship. Youtube QI, thank me later.

Song of Fire and Ice (Yes because I saw the show first, shut up)
H.P. Lovecraft
Anything in the Ravenloft/Dragonlance/Forgotten Realms mythos
Learning to enjoy select classics; Voltaire, Salinger, Shelley, couple of others

Listening to:
European melodeath/folk/power metal - Soilwork, Scar Symmetry, Disarmonia Mundi, Korpiklaani, old In Flames, Eluveitie, Blind Guardian, Amon Amarth...this could go on

American thrash/groove - Pantera and all derivatives, BLS, Evile, GWAR, etc.

Also odd spatterings of miscellanies. Clutch, Earth Wind and Fire, Paul Simon, various 80s garbage. I won't say I'll listen to anything, I just have an eclectic snobbery.

Anything certain social norms say I should've outgrown by now. I have played and would again if the opportunity arose

Magic the Gathering (and similar CCGs in many formats)
Dungeons and Dragons (and similar derivative pen and paper games)
Mechwarrior (The heroclix based wizkids one, not the 80s grid one, but I would)
Warhammer 40000 (Not actually, but same concept. Warmachine/Hordes, still assembling and painting miniatures, but requires less disposable income to get into)

Video games on pc and/or console. This ones a little tougher to define, any game franchise or genre can let me down. I grew up loving JRPGs, but can't be arsed to finish any Final Fantasy game since X-II. If you're holding your breath for a Suikoden 6 or a port of Suikoden 2 or Xenogears, we should chat.

I generally like couch co-op or private online. Online PvP is asking to be annoyed by people with more free time than me. Some recent titles I've become invested in are both Borderlands, Torchlight 2, Both Arkham games, Alpha Protocol, Castlevania LoS (classic formats still better), Saints Row 3, not much else has hooked me but I'm always looking. Games are on a by title basis.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All kinds of shit. I saw a TED Talks recently where a guy was describing that men have the capacity to think about nothing, and women don't understand it. I personally lack it, maybe that makes me a woman but I can name several anatomical things that make it unlikely.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fuckin' bored. I have gadgets and toys up to my eyes but I'm seriously lacking in face time. I don't want to be that guy who goes out alone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be the guy who set up all the obnoxious roadblocks and detours all over the valley.

I only do monogamy. In my cohort that seems like a scarlet letter.

I want to be a steamshovel when I grow up.
You should message me if
If you want to have a normal human interaction. I won't call you baby or any other creepy affection pet names prematurely. I would only call anyone milady ironically. I won't start or interject a conversation with unsolicited erotica, descriptions or pictures of my penis. I won't steer a conversation towards intrusive sexual questions. I won't get angry and call you a whore or suddenly unattractive if I'm rejected.

I realize these things shouldn't be unique, but considering the stories and screenshots I've seen, being a woman on a dating site seems fucking horrifying.
The two of us
