My self-summary
I'm the guy you call if you get stuck in a snowbank or need your car jump started. I also open doors for other people and enjoy going out of my way to help people. I'm trustworthy, responsible, reliable, and somewhat serious. Respecting other people, and their beliefs, is important to me.

I'm a geek (or nerd, take your pick!). I like card games like Flux, Munchkin, and MTG. I've been known to spend my time with pencil and paper RPG's like Dungeons and Dragons. I also like computer games and reading and watching science fiction. I'm also a fan of unusual board games most people have never heard of. Thunderstone, Ticket to Ride, Power Grid, and Twilight Imperium top this list.

I've also spent nearly uncountable hours outside camping. I'm an Eagle scout, and prefer sleeping in tents over cabins/campers/RVs. I've camped in caves, in the snow, slept outdoors, and during tornado weather.

I consider myself an introvert although I like to go out too. I'm shy and kind of cautious around new people. Once I warm up a little I love to laugh and make jokes, and can actually talk quite a lot. I tend to be a little blunt in my communication and you'll probably have to be the same way with me. I tend to take things at face value - If you tell me you don't want to hear from me tomorrow, you won't. I don't play games with relationships.

I'd like to meet someone who shares a few geeky interests or is a gamer. I like to watch movies, listen to music, and go out and about too. But it would be amazing to start with some common ground. I have high moral and ethical standards and you should too. My family is really important to me and I'm looking forward to starting one of my own (eventually, no rush).

If you see something you like here or want to know more, send me a message! I'd love to hear from you :-)

I am nerdy, quirky, and intelligent.
What I’m doing with my life
Work. Usual life stuff.
I’m really good at
Learning new games (be it on the computer, or at a table with people).
More generically, achieving an understanding of the rules and incentives that drive situations in particular ways. This also applies to the structure of things, like software and furniture.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm nice. I try to get along with everyone (not necessarily be friends, but I'll still be polite). I try to see things from their point of view so that I can better understand them. That makes me nice. Or so I've been told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pretty much any fantasy or science fiction books. Favorites: Terry Goodkind and David Eddings. Recently: Jim Butcher.

Movies: most anything you sit me down to watch. Favorites: Star Trek, or pretty much any Science Fiction. Recently: Marvel super hero movies. I'm not a huge fan of chick flicks. Really? Getting married after knowing one another for four days? I'm willing to trade though: I'll watch chick flicks if someone agrees to watch some sci-fi with me!

Music: Not rap or metal. Favorites: Country and Gospel. Recently: Mostly County.

Food: I'm a little picky, but I'm working on expanding my horizons, as well as becoming a better cook. The oddest thing I tried lately would be squid. Or maybe putting red peppers on my pizza.
Six things I could never do without
Family, Friends, Love, Books, Fun, and Computers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What goes on in my head. What goes on in their head. And in your head. Really just trying to understand people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to Happy Hour after work, then either to go game or to head home and crash.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Here's a list!:
Women I'm attracted to intimidate me.
As an introvert I do need time to myself, but I have too much time to myself now.
You should message me if
You are a non-smoker;
You aren't a single mother;
You aren't a full-time undergrad student.
The two of us
