My self-summary
I could paint a picture of who I am, but I'll let the things I do with my life do that for me. I'll say that I'm a counter-cultural man of many passions. What you need to know before you know anything else is that I'm a Christian.

[Edit] I am not looking for someone to make me happy. My ultimate goal isn't to make anyone else happy either. All in all, I want someone that I can share a mutual love and respect with. I want our collective goal to be to honor God alongside one another no matter how difficult our relationship may get.
What I’m doing with my life
The only thing that's for sure about me is nothing's for sure. There are too many things out there to learn, too many places out there to see, too many people out there to meet, too much food out there to taste, and so on. I've got huge aspirations, but the one thing in particular I can point out is that I spend a lot of time reflecting on my life through a biblical lens. I'm constantly working on the spiritual aspect of who I am.
I’m really good at
I fancy myself a socially awkward butterfly. There are times where I'm making conversation with strangers of all sorts. Other times, I'm away from all forms of human contact. It's made me adaptable in all social situations. I can connect to introverts and extroverts, optimists and pessimists, and those that are like me, the opportunists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I cannot be pigeon holed. My personality is too random and my interests are too diverse to group me with a particular type of personality. I'm also not driven by the things that pop culture deems as normal in any sense of the phrase. I do what I want to do and take up my own interests despite how much that clashes with where I come from and who I'm "supposed to be" culturally. Bring on your assumptions, prejudices, expectations, and judgements. I will defy every last one of them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have a growing mini-library. It mostly consists of books on science, theology, and philosophy. My library includes authors like Ravi Zacharias, C.S. Lewis, Paul Tripp, Lee Strobel, Max Lucado, Mark Driscoll, and Francis Collins. That's not all of them, but it's a start.

Currently reading: Liberating Black Theology by Anthony B. Bradley and Being the Body by Charles Colson & Ellen Vaughn.

I'm writing my own book right now too. It should be finished in a couple months.

Movies: My favorite movie scene goes like this:

"Seriously, what do you see in that guy?"
"He makes me laugh."

If you know what that's from, I'll marry you right now. ;)

Shows: I don't watch much TV. Most of it is softcore porn with no distinguishable plot. I can feel my brain cells eroding in real time when I do watch it. I do enjoy Lost, Heroes, The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time and shows of the like. I'm a casual WWE and anime fan too.

Music: I am pretty passionate about music. To give you an idea of what you're in for, I like listening to classical music when I'm reading or trying to sleep. I listen to some pretty heavy stuff when I'm on the go, and I listen to hip-hop when I'm in deep thought. Check out what I'm listening to now!

Food: I'm a southern boy. Bring on the spicy stuff! Bring on the seafood! Bring on the soul food! Just keep the fast food at bay. I can't stand it.
Six things I could never do without
Let's color outside the lines. I'll tell you three things I look for in potential interests and three things that'll land you in the friendzone. I'm a rebel like that.

01) Jesus. He walks. Do you know it? Having the same theological worldview is very important to me. I believe all His teachings are true without any exceptions regardless of what society has to say about it. I don't answer to you. I answer to Him.

02) Music. I love it. I don't just say I love it, I show it. I still buy music. I go to concerts. I buy DVDs. I read/listen to interviews. I have tons of merchandise. I actually show the artists love that enhance my life. It REALLY irritates me when people say they love music, but steal all that they have. Have something you're passionate about too!

03) Art. It runs in my family. I'm alright with a pen myself. I'm no poet by any means, but literature is my thing. Everyone on my father's side is some type of artist. Because of this, I've been convinced I'd marry an artist since I was 14. We'll see if that actually happens.

Three things that'll banish you to the land of no return:

01) Mixed signals. If you're confused about life, just leave me alone. Have some direction. Know what you want out of a relationship and what you expect from me as a man. If we have different ideas of what we're supposed to bring to the table, let's not waste each other's time, eh?

02) Prudishness. I can't stand "holier than thou" people. I like to have a drink now and then. That doesn't mean I'm a drunk. I like to tell edgy jokes. It doesn't mean I'm insensitive, deranged, or a pervert. I have gay friends. That doesn't mean I condone sexual sin. I could go on. Please, don't be a stick in the mud.

03) Smoke. I can't stand it. I don't care if it's mary j or cigs. It's all disgusting to me and turns me off. My friends do it, and that's where you'll be with the rest of them. The friendzone. ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have many great theological and philosophical teachers. Through what I learn from them, I'm always thinking about life's different challenges and how I can better approach them for myself and the world around me. I want to be a loving example for people. The only way I can do that is to continue to challenge myself. How do I get all of this accomplished? How can I keep pushing myself?
On a typical Friday night I am
Who knows? Maybe it's one of the nights I'm wandering around downtown looking for random people to hang out with. Maybe I'm actually hanging out with my own friends. Maybe I'm catching a movie. Maybe I'm at a local concert venue. Maybe I'm at a comedy club. Or maybe I'm being boring and just reading a book. It's always a shot in the dark with me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been told my profile is intimidating. I'm not going to change it, but that's the last thing people think of when they think of me. I'm actually pretty silly and I don't take myself that seriously.
