My self-summary
Let's start with the TL:DR version:
Geeky, intelligent, book & music lover with an affinity for sports & movies seeks someone to spend time with. Enjoys comedy shows, pool, darts, bowling, board & card games, cooking & adventures. Anything's fun in good company!

Now for the unabridged version:
I'm hoping to find a local long term relationship, but I also welcome new friends along the way. I'd like to expand my social circle and have more reasons to get out of the house! I'm also open to nontraditional relationship styles--as long as everyone involved is on board and there's good communication.

While my profile says I do not want kids I want to be clear that I love kids. If you have kids, great! I'm simply not looking to produce any of my own.

I like a variety of things including live sporting events, games, mini-golfing, "bar sports", comedy shows, live theatre or music and festivals/events. I also think cuddling up to watch a good movie is great with that special someone!

I have 3 cats so if you're allergic this probably won't work out long term. Smoking either cigarettes or pot is a deal breaker for me--I can't handle the smell.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in sales/marketing for a software company. I play in a pool league and go line dancing once a week. Most other nights can find me at home watching Netflix, reading, or cooking. I'd love to have a few more activities on my calendar to liven things up.
I’m really good at
organizing things, reading quickly, and sleeping. 😊 I also do a great job packing due to a talent for Tetris. Actually I'm awesome at Tetris. Consider yourself challenged!
The first things people usually notice about me
Several messages have mentioned my eyes or my smile. What did you notice first?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mysteries, paranormal or regular romance novels, sci-fi/fantasy/urban fantasy, and historical fiction--to name a few.

Movies: Action, sci-fi/fantasy, adventure and comedy. Disaster flicks are my guilty pleasure. I'm a Star Wars fan over Star Trek, but enjoy both. I'm not a fan of horror/slasher flicks.

Music: For me it's about the emotion it evokes. If it makes an impression on me I'm going to like it, regardless of the genre.

Food: Pizza, chicken, bacon cheese fries and steak are some favorites. I like pretty much anything except for bananas, mushrooms and sushi.
Six things I could never do without
The Internet
My furballs
A comfortable bed with lots of pillows
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live a good life, what that means, and what is really important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or watching something on Netflix while working on my latest jewelry project. If anyone wants to help me change this up, I'm game--especially if you want to play pool!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love most people's answers to this because they don't seem to grasp the concept. It's the most private thing I'm willing to admit, which means I'm okay making it public. So yeah, it's not actually private, it's just toward that end of the continuum.

I'm looking for someone willing to beat my ass... pool! I definitely need the practice :-) Gotcha!
You should message me if
You like what you saw/read and think I look like an interesting person to get to know better. Or if you just want someone to talk to about a multitude of random subjects. I'd very much like to expand my social circle in addition to finding someone special.
