My self-summary
Putting all my cards on the table: I'm on here to find a real connection. A relationship that I can hope will last a very long time on an emotional & romantic level. Fair warning though: There's a thin shell to crack before finding that warm, compassionate, funny guy. That said, I also don't feel the need to rush these things.

About me, I enjoy exploring a variety of activities and I'm just as at home in some timberlands as I am a tux. From Dungeons and Dragons to paddleboarding to karaoke (sober), I'm a nerdy, outdoorsy, brave soul. I'm happy where I am, but would be happier sharing this life with another.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in Alexandria for a non-profit federation that helps trusted charities, such as St. Jude & Susan G. Komen, fundraise. The federation specializes in workplace giving, which would otherwise be an underutiluzed fundraising source.

I also work with the Prince William SPCA as a PAW Express Volunteer. We go to different events with a few dogs and cats that people can adopt right then and there. It's still great to see when a dog or cat does get adopted. The hardest thing about it is resisting the urge to adopt them all myself!
I’m really good at
Off the cuff puns

Cooking using a slow cooker

Ignoring how much better the singer before me was at karaoke
The first things people usually notice about me
Online, it would have to be my eyes were it not for the blinding glare from my glasses!

In person, my unwelcoming visage (colloquially known as RBF), which belies one of the kindest personalities you'll ever meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm big into comedy, and my tastes reflect that in books & movies. Not so much in television.

Books: Catch-22, Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, almost anything by Mark Twain.

Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Princess Bride, Monty Python & the Holy Grail just to name a few.

I'm also big on comic book movies and animation.

TV: Flash, iZombie, Suits, Sleepy Hollow, the Walking Dead, Doctor Who, & Bones just to name a few. I'm really liking the new Samantha Bee show Full Frontal as well.

Music: I'm more of a classic rock/oldies guy. However, I'll listen to anything from Tchaikovsky to Walk the Moon (I love their pseudo-80's music video for "Shut Up & Dance").

Food: What isn't my favorite? I can't choose a particular style, but I can say I love spicy foods, especially if it's well complemented with other flavors.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, water, & food are kind of obvious I think, so barring that...

1. Experiencing movies in a theater
2. My GPS
3. My Phone
4. My movie collection
5. A good pair of hiking boots
6. A real book with a cover & pages
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my first international solo trip will be, or how I can make it a not-so-solo trip.

Whether or not "What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?"has become the new "What's your sign?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the week. I could be going out to karaoke, playing board games, watching a movie, or taking it easy & watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to think "Netflix & Chill" being snuggled close together on the couch while watching a movie (like the aforementioned Princess Bride), with the most that happened is us falling asleep together.

And I will not let the internet ruin my version!
You should message me if
visiting a biergarten with live music sounds like as much fun as ice cream & a round of mini golf.
