My self-summary
EDIT: I am currently seeing someone, I am really hoping it goes well and I never log into this again, but because there might be amusement to come from this at some point, I am not deleting it all.
Good luck in your search for love.

Dear (your name),

Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile, by the fact that you are reading this I can hopefully presume that my pictures met with your liking. Or at least that you are pretending that they did for the sake of using some off-handed comment or grammatical error I make in this text as a basis for exclusion from your list of possible matches instead. Either way, kudos to you.

As you can tell from my photographs, I am not the average person that you would meet in the course of your daily routine. I rarely frequent bars or clubs, I care deeply for my friends and family, and have spent the better part of my adult life chasing dreams of something better. Things are starting to look up again after a few years of wondering if they ever could. For the time being that means working long hours between a couple of jobs to try and regain the ground I had lost, but the weight seems easier to bear with the light on the horizon.

I enjoy acting, singing, reading, music, history, theater, and building computers among other things. Most of my acting has been at local medieval, renaissance, and pirate festivals though while I was unemployed I brought my abilities to a community theater in Ft. Myers. They apparently thought I was good as they keep inviting me to audition for other roles, which I decline due to lack of time.

I am a horrible conversationalist. While a part of me is good on the stage and trying to turn uncomfortable silence into comedic inspiration, deep down I am rather introverted and am a better listener than a talker. This has of course turned many a date into awkwardly staring at the menus for far too long followed by desperately trying to salvage the evening through failed attempts at humor. I give you this not to warn you away but as a bit of me apologizing in advance and promising that I eventually open up, and so long as I can find some form of comfort or stability in a situation I tend to be a little more outgoing than I first appear.
What I’m doing with my life
Land survey, and piracy. Not so much the downloading of files, and more of the sewing fancy clothes and buckling some swash.

"Of the various virtues in life, too often we forget patience and kindness. While they may make your path more difficult and longer, when your destination is reached, it will always be with a warmer heart and more often, a better story." ~Me
I’m really good at

Well, I also dabble in acting, singing, drumming, building computers, and other random acts of stupidity. I am also turning into a jack of all trades more often of late, unfortunately I still cannot for the life of me figure out my car.
The first things people usually notice about me
Upon meeting me most people would agree that I am big (hence the nickname). Some people are known to make a better door than a window, I tend to be placed more into the wall category. Some friends refer to me as “Tall, Dark, and Scary.” Others substitute “Handsome” for the final adjective, I really don't have issue with either. Perhaps “Scarily Handsome”? I also am occasionally referred to as Fezzik... but I can't help being the biggest and the strongest, I don't even exercise. (Bonus points go to the ladies who know that quote.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite Authors are Goodkind, Martin, Sanderson, Brooks, Weis, Hickman, Rowling, Lackey, Modsett, Adams, Tolkien, Gaiman, and McCaffrey. I am also of the firm opinion that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is quite possibly the best way for a guy to pine over a 200 year old romance novel.

I vary my listening habits but some of my favorite artists are the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Van Canto, Alestorm, Eluveitie, Enter the Haggis, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Label Society, Bon Jovi, Johnny Cash, and Ozzy Osbourne.

Some of my favorite television shows are Doctor Who, Hells Kitchen, the IT Crowd, and the Big Bang Theory. Older shows that I will watch from time to time include the Black Adder, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Scrubs, and Firefly.

I quite enjoy Movies, and in some ways a movie is a good activity for a first date, not because it involves sitting in a dark room not talking to each other, but because if you see a well chosen show before dinner, it can give an immediate common ground for conversation. Alas most people shy away from theaters so much that I tend to avoid them as well just for wanting to not make my date uncomfortable. Some of my favorite films however are Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, the Boondock Saints, Stardust, the Princess Bride, the Hunt for Red October, October Sky, the Last of the Mohicans, the Lord of the Rings, Dark City, Serenity, Bukaroo Bonsai, Unleashed, the Forbidden Kingdom, Corpse Bride, and just about anything by Mel Brooks, the Marx Brothers, or Monty Python.

And though the following list may make you think otherwise, I promise that I am a straight male. I love musical theater. Wicked, the Pirates of Penzance, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, Spamalot, Avenue Q, the Fantastiks, Rent, the Phantom of the Opera... Love it.

I have spent several years in the past working as a cook for various establishments. Some of my favorite genres include Italian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, French, Steakhouse, Irish, Greek and Mexican. If there is food involved I will try anything at least once. And I can almost guarantee that you will not find a restaurant that I will be unable to tolerate. With of course exception for health department standards.
Six things I could never do without
Music, Friends, Transportation, Showering, Honor and air-flow (I am adverse to hot weather and I live in Florida, without a fan or AC I would die).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As of late my mind has been falling into a few recursive patterns pertaining to my past present and future. None of which are healthy forms of thought. I need to break these patterns but I have yet to figure out a way.

Last night I realized that I am the hopeless romantics version of "Good Luck Chuck", Every time I find myself falling for a friend, by the time I work up the courage to ask them out they are already starting a relationship with someone else, and it normally lasts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting ready for a festival, wasting away on the internet, spending time with friends, or trying to pay it forward.
