My self-summary
Disclaimer: I'm taking a slight break from the site for a minute. Been on too many first dates.

I've lived in Atlanta most of my life (originally from Chicago) and consider myself an adopted southerner. I've never been married, no kids and I'm definitely over dating just to be dating (aside from the fact that I am terrible at flirting). I have a stable job and don't have any roommates (if only for them not drinking my beer). I used to travel a lot, so I'm happy to be home more often to sleep in my own bed and not worry about needing a sweater I may have forgotten.

I'm a guy who enjoys what life has to offer: sports, art museums, restaurants a food snob would enjoy and sitting on the porch with a cold beer are just a few of life's pleasures. Balance is the keyword here. And variety.

Also, I'm not really sure how I'm "More Independent" yet "Less Indie" on the personality portion of this site. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I have a family that extends more than most, but only a few members live in the area. I'll bring diagrams to the second date.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a job in finance with daytime hours. You know, so I can buy dinner and not have to live with my mom.

I've become a runner over the past 3 years and I've really enjoyed all the benefits that come with that. Even the sore knees. I don't run races because its life affirming, I've just found its a great way to set goals and burn calories.

I decided to finish my college journey that began in the late 90s. Hopefully my plan will work out and I'll be done Thanksgiving 2016.
I’m really good at
I can hold my own at Jeopardy/trivia nights and can provide excellent commentary during a sporting event (MST3K style).

I've realized I can cook, I just need a recipe. My cooking improv skills need some work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall or my glasses.

Once we get talking its the razor sharp wit mixed with a sweet demeanor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I prefer biographies over fiction- "The Soundtrack of My Life" "Those Guys Have All the Fun" "President Me" "The War for Late Night"

I'm a typical nerdy guy for movies- "Star Wars" "X-Men" "Avengers" with a good comedy thrown in like "Ted" or "Happy Gilmore". A well done documentary can be rewarding as well, "Man on Wire" or anything done by Ken Burns.

I watch a few things on TV that are semi-snobby "Silicon Valley" "Brooklyn 99" "Archer" and those greatest places to eat shows on Food Network and Travel Channel.

I listen to just about everything, but my favorite genres are early 80s New Wave, 90s modern rock, late 60s/early 70s R&B but my iPod playlists are filled with dance music and metal for work-outs. Satellite radio is pretty awesome for the rare find and so worth it for no commercials. And podcasts like Nerdist and Serial.

I'll eat anything once, but I usually find it goes better with Sriracha. Love seafood, burritos and can always find a new treat at Trader Joe's.
Six things I could never do without
-Running Shoes
-tooth paste/tooth brush/floss/moisturizer/deodorant (I'm a teeny bit vain about my appearance)
-Hockey (in general or Preds to be more specific)
-Coffee (Hot, Iced, just don't deprive me)
-My Car

OK, I could live without beer or wine or the occasional Jameson, but there is a reason they are social lubricants.

Oh yeah and air and water and food and stuff. Let's be creative here people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Sandwich Creations
-Is the person driving in front of me really stopping for no reason?
-New routes to run
-What if Leia hadn't kissed Luke?
-Moving to a city that has an NHL team (not really, I love Atlanta)

On a typical Friday night I am
Usually resting after a long work-week, but totally up for a laid back night with friends. I'd rather save my energy to get up early for a run/hike/farmer's market trip. Also probably studying or working on a project. But if plans arise, I can rally after work for dinner, a movie or Braves game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was "catfished" a few years back. Granted, we met on another online dating site and only chatted for a few days before going out so I wasn't madly in love or anything like that. So I get why so many people are apprehensive about meeting someone online. I'll give you more details when we go out for drinks if you'd like to hear more.
You should message me if
You are an intelligent woman with a relatively stable life that enjoys sports, a good beer, discussing the silliness of pop-culture and relaxing on the couch is just as awesome as a night out with friends. A few pluses are: adventurous eater (I'm not too fond of the term foodie), are over 5' 6" and don't mind a man who spends a few minutes looking at the mirror and more goof ball (80%) than serious (20%). I'm not looking for a gym rat, but am looking for someone who likes to be active (hiking, running, etc.). The basic partner in misdemeanor crime.

Also, if you are looking for a guy who will make you laugh, drop you off in front of a restaurant when its raining and mock the people doing the wave at Turner Field, I'm your man. You know, the nice guy with a smart-ass side.

I honestly am looking for the woman who will want to share her life with me. Yes, many nights after work will be relatively quiet, with sharing our day, cooking dinner, and laughter. But I don't ever plan on being part of a couple that hates the others preferred activities and truly wants to be with someone.

Great conversationalists apply within.
