My self-summary
_ First, a note to someone that was truly wonderful to chat with: baking has been a great experience. Thank you for being my motivation to finally try it.

_ Now, on to the silly business.

_ I haven't been visiting this site for along time now, and I've also been in a wonderful relationship for a good time now. Over 7 months with a kind, loving, wonderful, intelligent, beautiful young woman; whom I'm proud to say is very dear to me.

_ All of my friends are lovely people I care very much for, even the ones I don't talk to as often as I would like, and while I'm always open to making more friends, I'm not really seeking new acquaintances right now - I mean, if you think we'd be a kick-ass pair of besties to roam the earth being awesome, certainly throw me a message!

_ I'm not as shy or awkward as I used to be, I do still blush around women I find attractive though, xD But I get excited to find things in common, and I have a passionate, loving heart. I'm emotional, but I'm not horribly sensitive. Almost all of my friends are women, and I'm quite happy with that. Not sure why that is, I just get along with the opposite sex better than my own.

_ I like a quiet coffee shop to read at or discuss any manner of subjects,
_ I like to cook occasionally, and host little get-togethers when I can.
_ I love camp fires and the usual fare that you can cook over them.
_ I'm a bit geeky, I'm relatively science and technology -informed.
_ To ellaborate, I enjoy learning anything about computers and technology. I like to play video games occasionally, and I think Magic: The Gathering is better than Crazy 8's, but that's just my opinion.

_ This is the only award I ever received when OkCupid had awards, and I keep it because she's a close friend whose words I value dearly. This isn't here for vanity.

“He is the most amazing guy you will ever meet. His heart is made of gold, and will protect you till the day you die; friend or otherwise. He's kind, a great listener, and a good teacher. Truly a person to have in your life forever.”
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently planning on making my way into Computer and Electrical Engineering starting at Camosun then bridge into UVic; working on the prerequisites at the moment.

I am not ashamed to say that I've worked for Walmart for about nine years.
I’m really good at
Honesty, Loyalty, Openness, Trust, Forgiveness, Sharing Warmth and Love, and being Totally Cool with being woken up by a sweetheart in the Middle of the Night for Any Reason.

I really suck at (but LOVE anyways)
Magic: The Gathering, Mad Gab, Dirty Words (the card game), Scrabble, Mario Kart (Wii), Staying afloat in a body of water longer than ten minutes, Piano.

I want to but have yet to try
Snowboarding, Water Skiing, GoKart Racing, baking desserts, being in a D&D group, and Skinny Dipping. ...what? I don't want to go alone, that'd be creepy.
The first things people usually notice about me
"He seems weird."
Whether it's because of my long hair (I do consider cutting it shorter, right now the girlfriend doesn't want me to), or my inconsistent personality (I find I manage to adapt to those around me), I haven't any real clue. But people seem to notice that I'm "weird" before they notice anything else.

I'm actually not that strange. Honest. But if I'm wrong about that, I don't think the people I know think it's a bad thing. xD
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My "Favourites" change often, not necessarily in any drastic manner, but they do change. Mostly because I'm open to change and finding love for new things.

For the most part, I will instead describe myself in regards to these categories instead of listing favourites.

I enjoy most seafood aside from salmon or mussels, and I often like to try new restaurants. I love cooking, though I rarely cook anything special just for myself, and would love an excuse to cook more! Having friends to cook with is always cool. I do eventually hope to take a culinary arts course or two.

I would love to go listen to the Victoria Symphony Orchestra on occasion. I get bored of music often, but still listen to it because it takes too much effort to find something new.

I really only watch cable television if it's with someone, but I hate commercials, so I usually stick to NetFlix, Blu-rays, or the PC. I enjoy nearly any type of movie or (commercial-free) TV show, exception being most reality shows. I've recentely decided I should actually get around to watching Lost (but editing this now, I still haven't seen the majority of the show, but holy crap - have you seen BBC's Sherlock?? SO AWESOME).

By far, without contest, my favourite author is Alastair Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds is an incredible Science Fiction author, as he weaves together real quality storytelling with great plots and wonderful characters. Each of his stories has flavour and mood. In fact, the only Non-Alastair Reynolds story that has gripped me so well is Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden (obviously not sci-fi, but a damn good book). Never heard of Alastair Reynolds? I suggest you start with his novel of short stories titled "Zima Blue".

I will watch anything, listen to anything, play anything, go anywhere, or even just chill. I value spending time with awesome people. :)
Six things I could never do without
Happiness for all the people in my life.

I could live without the rest.
(My apologies if that's painfully cliche)

Late amendments:
Tums. Stoopid heartburn.
Food. Not because it's necessary, but because it's yummy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Alastair Reynolds stories. And passionate love-making, because let's be honest here, who doesn't.

...that list is in the right order of magnitude. Oh, and also coffee. I think about that a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing what I do every night.

TRY TO TAKE OVER THE... party in my pants. Which, by the time I get around to, everyone's already gone home for the night. GEEZ, at least save me some Disaronno.

Wait, what was the question? Oh yeah, Fridays. I dunno. Bit.Trip Runner2? Zombies? Reading? Friday is a toss up, I usually work Saturday mornings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My girlfriend is open to having a third member in our relationship. We're not seeking, we're not going out of our way, but if there's a girl we both get a crush on - well... that would be awesome. I think we agree we both like girls on the shorter side, longer hair is awesome, an adorable personality. Perhaps I'm a little vain, but I find skinny to be more attractive - but personality is everything. You don't have to be skin and bones to be friggin' sexy! Girls, you ARE sexy. ;D

Disclaimer: I'm pretty sure the idea goes like this... we're not interested in a one-time thing, we wouldn't start anything unless all three really click with each other. But if things ever got dicey, my girlfriend and I won't tolerate anything trying to split us up. So, you know, at your own risk and all that. But hey! All the loves! <3

Other answer: I swear I saw Jesus once when I was about 5, while I was drowning in a pool. But I'm still an atheist. Because I remember him with a red robe, my mother thinks it was the devil / Lucifer or Satan, but I think Jesus is allowed to wear red. «insert horrible joke about Jesus and red here... »
You should message me if
You don't intend to keep things digital. If I wanted to keep my interactions with people strictly to the realm of the internet, I would've lied the crap out of this profile, because it wouldn't have really mattered.

I'm here to get social with people. It doesn't make sense for anyone to assume someone is telling the truth on the internet, especially when they claim to be honest and safe. Sounds fishy as f#$%, doesn't it? But if you don't believe me, we can stick to public places and have our friends around. Meeting people you find online is scary.

If I have read your profile but I have yet to send you a message, then there's the possibility that we just wouldn't get along, or maybe I just got distracted by a squirrel outside, ran to take a picture, tripped on my laptop's power cord unplugging it, whilst simultaneously hitting my head on something, forgetting how awesome cheese is. Either way, don't be afraid to send me a message. If I still don't reply, well, I really don't come on here that often. Now to take over that moon...

Random Other [Missing] Comments Section

Dec. 20th; I just read an article on Kotaku with a video attached from "solikebasically", and after reading it and watching her video I have to say: Gosh. I already felt pretty awesome to get messages back from some of the people I've messaged while I was here. But now I feel privileged to have had real conversations with those wonderful people. Thank you to everyone who has found me interesting enough to take the time to talk with me. Every experience in life is important, and I really enjoyed getting to know people through this site.

Whether I'm glad or disappointed that my amazing relationship has nothing to do with the time I invested in these dating sites, I'm not sure, but I'm grateful for all of it. :)
The two of us
