My self-summary
My name is Alex and I'm a single 27 year-old man who is looking for romance. I was born in Southern California, then my family moved to the Bay Area (Novato to be more precise). I lived there for about 11yrs until my family moved again in the San Rafael neighborhood called Terra Linda for about 12yrs. NOW I am a single bachelor in Oceanside!
It's been four years now that I signed up here on OKCupid. Still no luck, BUT I SHALL NOT GIVE UP.

Some characteristics I could say about myself:
I'm a bit shy, easy going, sometimes funny, semi-nerdy/geeky (I like fiction, science fiction, comics, anime/manga), kinda laid back, a bit of a homebody, and very creative individual when it comes to art. I try to be active with social life by seeing movies, going the the library, and spending some quality time with my friends and family. Some of you might see me as an introvert.

I kinda consider myself like TED MOSBY from How I Met Your Mother, a guy who wants to find his soulmate a.k.a. my "yellow umbrella" girl (my own Tracy). I would like to proclaim my love like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jmuyaONeCA

They say honesty is always the best policy. So here is me being honest about myself. The whole truth, and nothing but the truth: I'm not into sports (baseball is fine, but I'm not a huge crazy SF Giants fan), I lack muscles, I have NO tattoos and/or piercings, I don't know how to dance or play a musical instrument (the guitar in my photo gallery here on OKC belongs to my father....just posing with it), NOT a dog person (been dealing dog drama since I was 10yrs old AND I was scratched by a dog when I was young....please do no reject me because of my statement. I can deal with dogs.), INFP, I DON'T SMOKE cigars/cigarettes/pot/marijuana/meth, and I am still experimenting in the drinking world so don't expect me to go to a lot of bars. As for religion: my father is Jewish and my mother is Christian...I'm just trying to find my own path while soul searching. I walk on a good path. Also, I find this inspirational for me when it comes to faith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FJyADKq_MU

I'm the kind of guy who would lend a helping hand for anyone or anything: a kid who dropped their ball in a creek at the park, a blind old lady who fell down an outdoor maintenance shaft, a puppy that got separated from its owner, a pursue that was accidentally left behind by a fellow colleague, or a little girl with an arm-cast trying to lift a fast food baby-chair. I sometimes think I end up at the right place at the right time...like a guardian angel.

I would like to learn and part take in some awesome activities for potential dating experiences:
-Horseback riding
-Hang gliding
-Zip lining
-Sky diving (both in-door and out-door)
-Wingsuit flying (imagine a human flying squirrel)
-Laser tag (childish yes, but it seems a little bit "awesome"....laugh if you know the HIMYM reference)

I am interested in ALL kinds of women (NOT necessarily in order or all in one person): white, black, asian, tall, short, BBW (also qualifies for anyone is chubby, plus size, overweight, or a little extra).
I'm not all for astrology, but IF there is someone who is interested in a Libra like me: Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Pisces.

I'm NOT playing any games or looking for hook-ups. I think that is what is the problem with my fellow men and society.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to attend College of Marin from 2008 to 2014, then I transferred to another community college here in Oceanside, MiraCosta, where I finished completing my remaining credits and received my Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts and Humanities. With this college degree I plan to become a cartoonist/writer.

I used to work part-time at a toy store that sells all things LEGO for 3 years. Its called Play-Well TEKnologies (T = Teaching, E = Engineering to, K= Kids). I mostly work as a clerk/assembler as I make kits for kids across the U.S. and the Globe. A called my position "one of the many elves in Santa's Lego department". I resigned from my job when I moved to Oceanside, and I've be looking for something new.

I've finally been able to heal from a pilondial cyst wound for about 3 years now. I made a lot of progress thanks to some new treatments. Now that I am fully healed I have to be careful about some of my activities, then will get a job and move on with my life. (If you don't know what a pilondial cyst is, look it up at your own risk...its nothing to look at.)
I’m really good at
I am a talented artist. I mostly draw with pencils, but I am also talented with charcoal. And I am practicing with watercolor and painting. I post all my artwork on my FACEBOOK page if you are curious. I am currently developing a graphic novel in my spare time away from school and work. I also am good with writing short stories and writing down ideas for a book/TV shows/movies.

I used to roller skate, ski and ice skate when I was young.

I can do some voice impressions...which are a work in progress. My Bane voice from Dark Knight Rises is flawless....I discovered a trick.

AND I can perform a back massage. (I am not trying to be a chiropractor, I just have a skill that works on family AND I would be lousy at memorizing every bone in the human anatomy).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall (just don't make me say, "Fee, Fi Fo Fum") and when I was young (and residing in Novato) my teachers have informed me that I look exactly like my father.

I also have a freckle on the bottom right side of my lip...if you find that to be a tad cute.

Six things I could never do without
1. My friends (from where I use to live in Marin County...some wonderful memories growing up as a kid through adulthod)
2. My family (mainly my parents...even though they have been divorced for most of my life)
3. My cat (her name was Chica)...sadly she passed away on JULY 3RD 2016....might want anew cat in the future.
4. My comic book collection...they are my life's work and one of my most treasured possessions, especially the autographed ones.
5. My binder/notebook full of story ideas...they are the key to the future.
6. My artwork...they are also the key to the future.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Developing my creative ideas for story growth and artistic appearances to fill the void. I also think about meeting a woman who I can share my time with and the romantic adventures I would like to plan. I want to believe in [true] love. How the love of my life could walk in with a great song playing in the background like in any TV show or film. (One song in particular: The La's "There She Goes" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu2iv-vMKT8)

Other times I think what to browse/buy on Amazon/bookstores/comic book shops/video stores, life, my hopes and dreams, what to do with my friends, what is playing on tv/movie theater, where I see myself 5 or so years into the future.

And some odd thoughts: how would I look as a bald man, Vinyl revives record players, why so many people use different social network sites instead of just using one, why hasn't there been a president who doesn't a military background since Dwight D. Eisnhower (from 1953-1961), or being a contestant on the dating show "Dating Naked".
On a typical Friday night I am
I am watching movies/TV (from either YouTube clips of TV Shows or movies OR Netflix....yes, I have become a Netflix zombie) and read one of my books/comics. (I want my Friday nights to feel special).

No longer studying in college because I finally received my Associate of Arts Degree. Might go back to college to pursue a Bachelor's degree if finding a job doesn't work out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
1.) I only make coffee for my mother, but I never drink it.
2.) I still watch cartoons. (I'm a kid at heart)
3.) I DO NOT know how to drive. Seriously. (Kinda working on that...)
4.) I'm scared of sharks (I saw the movie JAWS when I was like 10 years old)...though SyFy summer movies make my fear less real.
5.) I have vampire like teeth/fangs. (DO NOT ASK ME TO BE EDWARD from "TWILIGHT")
6.) I've never had a relationship of any kind: long or short term.
7.) I always wanted to be a Power Ranger since I was a kid.
8.) I've never been inside of a taxi cab or the subway. (I used to reside near both San Francisco and Richmond, so how could I have missed out on that, right?)
9.) For the many ideas on my birthday/Christmas/Hanukkah wishlist I want a girlfriend I can love and cherish, and show her a good time.
You should message me if
you are someone, like me, who is trying their luck in the dating world and is interested in getting to know each other. I am interested in a girl who describes herself as slightly nerdy/geeky who likes comics and cartoons, who is smart, pretty and kind, who is NOT into drugs and isn't judgmental. I am not particular about height, weight, race, or religion. What is important to me is personality and compatibility.

If you wish to contact me, feel free to send me a message here on OkCupid....OR...If you also want to contact me on Facebook, here is my web address: alex.phillips.3760@facebook.com.
OR...you can Skype. [Ask me for my username]

Also, message me ONLY if you live in the United States of America, live within the state of California, and/or reside within or near Oceanside. And if you rate me between 4 through 5, please message me because I can't see who you are on OkCupid, not until I upgrade onto A-List.

I'm probably one of the honest good guys you will ever meet. I have a lot of patience when it comes to messaging. Just give me a chance and you will never regret it.

I swear I am NOT playing any games or looking for hook-ups. I want a romantic, platonic, and then sexual relationship.
The two of us
