My self-summary
Every time I've filled out this self-summary section it's come off as inane or overly weird.

I'm uncomfortable summarizing myself. So until I come up with something clever or amazing, let's just say this:

I grew up as a military kid and a giant nerd (video games, role playing games, Star Wars, Star Trek: the works) and now I'm a new actor in NYC with a shiney new MFA... would you like fries with that?

I don't tend to go out to bars fishing for women, so I'm trying this out instead.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting used to life in New York City.
Auditioning when I can.
Taking classes when I can.
Waiting tables to pay the rent and slowly make my apartment look like an adult lives there.
Meeting with old friends online to reconnect with my nerd-roots.
I’m really good at
Avoiding online profile bragging
The first things people usually notice about me
Hell, I don't know. They usually don't tell me.

I'm frequently told that I don't look my age. I guess I've got a youthful face.

Also, I think I sometimes come off as a bit more shy/awkward than I really am at first. I sometimes take a moment to "warm up". Half a moment if I've been drinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are so many things to mention, so I'll pick some "biggies"

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Game of Thrones (or: Song of Ice and Fire), The Walking Dead, World War Z, Supernatural, Star Trek, all manner of music from the 50s to now (super vague, I know), Lost, Jon Stewart's Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Full Frontal with Sam Bee, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, the Prydain series... and on and on and on...
The six things I could never do without
I want seven things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A great many things that aren't appropriate to write down here.

All brand of fantasies. From slaying dragons, to being a superhero, to plugging my first big movie on late night TV.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with my nerdy, nerdy friends online... I sometimes play RPGs over Skype... I'm not proud.

Playing a video game... probably Elder Scrolls Online or Fallout 4.

Going on a Netflix binge.

Auditioning.

Rehearsing (god willing)

I'm a big fan of quiet nights at home. I can enjoy them alone or with company. Though sometimes sitting at home and doing nothing also makes me antsy... So this was pretty much a non-statement.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You can learn from this profile that I'm a 34-year-old theatre nerd who's into Dungeons and Dragons, and has a job associated with the phrase "would you like fries with that?"

Really, there's not much else I could have to hide.
You should message me if
... You really think we'd have fun together and be romantically drawn to each other.

... You're willing to meet up in person and skip the awkward, prolonged getting-to-know you emailing. I know it's a whole different beast for women, since some guys can be dangerously creepy, but I just don't think we can get to know each other well enough over email.
