My self-summary
First and foremost, I'm a geek and proud of it. I love role-playing games, and I'm always reading up on something. I think analytically, and I welcome having my conclusions challenged. Be warned that sometimes I can't let little things go when I don't feel I am being heard. If you be patient with me I will be more loving.

I am a home-body, but I welcome the chance to let someone new into my life. I'd prefer to get to know each other by talking, rather than relying on this site's questions. Feel free to ask me anything you like. I'm not easily offended.

I love children... I feel like this doesn't get said enough. Ultimately I am perfectly fine if you already have children or eventually want children.

Then comes the rest. The stigma of intimacy. I love it... all of it. This doesn't mean that I am some douche manipulating you for one ultimate goal, wherein lies the problem, I don't want to express interest in sex or the like and suddenly get the stink eye for it. I just want it known that I crave physical contact. It can be just cuddling if that is what is preferred. Questions geared towards sex (which I personally reserve until after establishing mutual sexual interest) are so that if matters get that far that I am not crossing lines. Boundaries exist... even at that point. It is my wish to not break your boundaries. If we date and if we get that far and you feel uncomfortable then let me know. I would prefer that.

If I message you first, or if I seem particularly interested in what you have to say, I find you attractive. Appearances are nice, but that's not all there is. That needn't be a major part of our conversation.

Lastly, I sleep in the nude mostly. Don't judge. That is not an invitation but a simple statement. It is just as much a warning as it is a reflection of who I am.

I recently had my hair cut, lost a smidge of weight, and now I have glasses. There will be pictures to update soon.

I spend a lot of time contemplating the concept of "the one" and all that it reflects. I am not looking for a mythical "one" girl. Statistically finding the single best candidate is nearly impossible. Someone who fits every one of my proclivities and I hers in return... I have a statistically better chance of winning the lottery. So two people finding the same in another is doubly unlikely. I am simply looking for someone who finds my merits outweigh my flaws and will love me. Don't disclude me because we're only a 60% match. We might have more in common than you think.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a bank and am working hard to keep my professional life moving. The steady hours help keep life outside of the bank flourishing provided it doesn't conflict with the hours of whoever I am dating. It is important to note that that may never change. So if your hours conflict please understand that my hours are going to be consistent.
I’m really good at
I am really good at crafting. I make jewelry, I blacksmith, carve, draw, paint and bead. There are a few other crafts that I do but it is probably shorter to list what I don't make.
The first things people usually notice about me
My physical stature, which is often said to be imposing when I am in a serious mood.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Romeo and Juliet, Sun Tzu's- The Art of War. I've also recently grown fond of several classic Victorian Horror novels. Frankenstein and the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for example.

Movies: Interview with the Vampire, Yes Man, Dark Portals- Chronicles of Vidocq, Ink. But to be fair I am a fan of B movies and just about any movie genre.

Shows: Dead Like Me, True Blood, Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Buffy, Angel, Burn Notice. I watch reality shows with my dad on occasion too.

Music: I like a bit of everything really.

Food: I will try just about anything once, but I really like Greek, Italian, Chinese, and Indian the most.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Love, shelter, Food and Water, my hands, and my sense of worth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, in fact I find myself looking for ways to just set everything else aside and relax. This tends to be easiest when I am with someone who is close to my heart. The hopeless romantic that I can be sometimes...
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend it hanging out with friends or working on parts of my house... Sometimes both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are a few things that I don't like to admit but this seems to fit into things that are both private but also necessary to inform a potential partner. You may never realize how damaging it is to admit so consider this a preemptive strike, you are warned.

My top row of teeth are fake. my diabetes along with other problems aided in destroying my teeth. I don't care to elaborate more. If you would judge me on this or cannot get past it then you are not for me.

I reserve every other private matters for whoever I date.
You should message me if
If you are interested and aren't going to judge me based on being a gamer, or having false teeth, then message me all you like. I will respond to nearly anything sent my way provided it isn't obviously mean-spirited.

One caveat that I feel I must place... please make sure any messages towards me contain more than "hi, how are you" or any variant. I feel that there should be no double standard here. Such a wasted beginning shows me a lack of effort. I.E: Tell me something about you I won't find on your profile, or ask me a question you might want to see my stance on.

Lastly, I have anxiety that normally makes it very difficult to make the first move/message. If you are interested in me, the feeling may be mutual. I will respond to anything that took longer than a few seconds to write.

If there is something you want to talk about, no matter how strange it may seem, I would prefer you start with that. Sometimes it is the strangest things we have within us that can make or break a relationship.
