My self-summary
I am polyamorous.

I'm 6'6, you can probably see the long hair, I've got a degree in Computer Engineering & Computer Science and am a Computer Programmer by trade, I've been known to play Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) (and other table-top role-playing games, when the opportunity arises) but frankly since I started LARPing it all pales in comparison, I've been described as honorable to a fault, I've only recently ceased being shy, I'm exactly and to the letter what a Pisces is described as though I'm not sure that I believe in such things, I consider myself a moralist, I've been told that my poetry is pretty good although I haven't written since high school, I'm agnostic but if I had to pick a belief set it'd be some kind of nature worship or polytheism, not atheism.
Okay, deep breath.

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I could call myself "straight-edge." Now I drink girly drinks in small quantities. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

I am a switch and a primal.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a computer programmer. I own my beautiful house in Crestwood, and I am living with my girlfriend, with whom I am polyamorous. She has a kid, whom I am raising with her.

I'm a boffer LARPer - and those games happen fairly regularly.
I’m really good at
Computer games, helping others with problems (psychotherapy would have been my second choice of career if the computers didn't pan out, but they did), making an idiot of myself, English, Literature, writing, Philosophy, programming. I've also got experience at being a literary and artistic critic for my former high school, so whenever I see a movie or other form of art, I'll often comment to whomever I'm seeing it with about various technical and literary aspects, particularly symbolism. Does that make me boring? You tell me, but I can shut up if the person I'm with doesn't appreciate it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Someone once saw fit to tell me what she noticed when she met me: first my eyes and then my smile. So there's one person's opinion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books The Coldfire Trilogy. The Death Gate Cycle, The Vlad Taltos series, the Myth Adventures books.

Movies Chicago. Phantom of the Opera. Crash. The Hours, Corpse Bride. This list really needs updating; maybe I'll get around to it some day. Not today.

Shows and Anime I'm gonna add to this soon, but here goes. Heroes, Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Gilmore Girls (I'M TOTALLY STRAIGHT O.O), Avatar: The Last Airbender and Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Mythbusters, Evangelion, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fruits Basket (STILL STRAIGHT O.O), Chuck, Penn & Teller's Bullshit!.

Music Thank you, Internet radio, for introducing me to awesome new genres. :-P Kamelot, Leaves' Eyes, Elis, Within Temptation, Epica, Nightwish, The Birthday Massacre, Apocalyptica, Krypteria, Theatre of Tragedy, Sirenia, Battlelore, Plumb, Disturbed, Evanscence, Godsmack, Korn, Linkin Park, Killswitch Engage, A Perfect Circle, Mudvayne, . Yeah, I have a pretty specific subgenre of music that I just go wild for - symphonic metal, which America mostly sucks at. :-P

Food In general, the more exotic the better. My favorite dish thusf ar is sah chul tang, a Korean goat soup.

Okay, that's enough for now. :-P

Can you identify my primary hobby? ;-)
The six things I could never do without
Hydrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen; Ether, Electrons, Protons; Compassion. :-) Oh, shit, that was seven. Kinda. Oh well.

Too literal? Fine.
Animals. Intellectual stimulation. Entertainment. Hope. Love. Excitement.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My navel. Computers. Theology. Science. Quite a few ohers, at that. I've an avid interest in psychology, science of all kinds, and just about everything else under the sun there is to learn about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing video games, more than likely. Possibly LARPing. A few times a year, cleaning my house to throw a board game party! :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I chew on my hair. I don't know why, but I've been told that that's gross as hell. It's yummy.

I played Farmville for a month or two when it was new. It was terrible - I always had trouble tearing myself away from it but I wan't having fun.

My favorite color is lavender.

Also: I love Nickelback. Yes, I just admitted it, right here. I accept your hate.
You should message me if
You really want to. I pretty much require intelligence in those I speak to, and usually open-mindedness. To expand on this -- open-mindedness is not necessarily liberalism unless you're conservative.

My objective, at the moment, is to find a relationship. I'm already in one, but what I seek is another loving, intense, long-term, and stable partnership.

I never object to making new friends, either. If I encounter someone who's just looking for friends, then I'l very happily engage with them only on that level - I'm not going to try to pressure anyone into sex who isn't already looking for it.
