It's been about three 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.
I kinda consider myself like TED MOSBY from How I Met Your Mother, a guy who wants to find the woman he wants to be with....my "yellow umbrella" girl (my own Tracy).
They say honesty is always the best policy. So here is me being honest about myself: 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 old man), 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.), I DO NOT SMOKE cigars/cigarettes/pot/marijuana/meth, and I am still new to 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.
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:
-Sky diving (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 playing any games or looking for hook-ups.
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 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.
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.
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).

2. My family (mainly my divorced parents)
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.
5. My binder/notebook full of ideas...they are the key to the future.
6. My artwork...they are also the key to the future.
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".
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.
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?)
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
