My self-summary
Hey there. My Name is Matt, and thank you for reading this encyclopedia like tome of a profile. I've actually tried editing and condensing it where I can, but I've never felt comfortable just writing a few lines about me, and I hope that this profile will be informative and let you learn some of the basics about me. I'm just a guy looking to find someone who will join me on the adventure called life. I would describe myself as a down to earth guy who has good values and someone who's passionate about their interest and what they believe in. My hope is to find a woman who will join me on mine, and take me on their own too. I'm an open minded, thoughtful, considerate, funny(I'd like to think so at least), and affectionate kind of guy. I like the kind of woman who takes the time to send good morning texts and does other things of that nature. Dating for me hasn't always been easy or come that naturally. I had a few friends in my school years, but for the most part, I never really fell in with a crowd. I was the only kid I knew who was into things such as comic books and classic movie monsters, or who listened to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm fine with that. It's who I was, and and really still am. And as an adult in the workplace, my job has me working by myself, so the opportunities to form many friendships or ask a girl out who I like don't always readily present themselves. And when I do find someone I want to ask out, or even just form a new friendship with, it's tough because I really don't know anything about them. We're just people who pass each other in the hallway.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it, and always looking for ways to improve it. I don't drive(which I'll get into later in this profile), so some of what I've done is try to figure out ways around that. Getting to work has always been fine, but being able to get just get out when I'm free can be more challenging. Friends and family though told me about positive experiences with Uber and Lyft though, and that's helped out. I'm also always on the look out for new employment opportunities. I've been at my current job since 2009, and for various reasons, I just want out. Other than that, I hang out with friends when we're all free, and follow the things that interest me such as comic books, classic monsters, video games, and politics.
I’m really good at
I think I'm just good at being me. I try to be someone who listens to people and be supportive of those that I care about. Because that is how I want others to act towards me. I think I'm good at being considerate too. I'm also a well of all sorts of information about various things. When I get into something, my mind becomes a sponge, and I absorb all the info I can about it. So if a movie is based on a comic, novel, or true story, you can bet I'll be seeking out the source material. I love watching the special features and commentaries that come with movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think just myself as a whole. I don't mean this is in any way out of arrogance. I've always been someone who marches to my own beat. And even in my own circles of friends, my level of interest in the things I like is very deep. Sometimes that makes it tough to relate people, because they might not be into the same things as me or as into them as I am. I still manage to get by though.

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
TV: The Odd Couple(70's versions), Aeon Flux, Doug, Rocco's Modern Life, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Being Human(British and American), Arrow, Daredevil, and many more.
MUSIC: Red Hot Chili Peppers are my favorite, and I grew up listening to Billy Joel. Others I like would U2, Vertical Horizon, Train, Goo Goo Dolls, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, and much more from all over the rock genre.
FOOD: Kosher pastrami sandwiches, BBQ like Pulled Pork, Meat Loaf, Seafood, pizza, and Chinese.
VIDEO GAMES: Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Prey, Army of Two, Dead Space, Injustice, Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Anything that seems fun to play.
Six things I could never do without
No way am I going to be able to limit it to 6. I'm passionate about alot of stuff right now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always thinking about something. That's for sure. My mind is an active one, but primarily(and this line is gonna sound cheesy), but I think about life love, and the pursuit of happiness. In terms of life, I'm always thinking of ways to improve it. Like I mentioned earlier, I learned of various ways to get around not driving like taking taking buses, trains, and using services like Lyft for work and to get where I want to go in my free time. Another goal I think about is finding an all around better job. And eventually, I'd like to move out of family's house, and into my own place. A lot of people ask me why I haven't done it yet, but I'm just trying to be smart about it. Finding that special someone is something is important to me. I can certainly be happy as my own person, but I do get lonely sometimes. Last is happiness. Certainly, the first two things I talked about play into it, but my interests also make me happy too. I really love diving in to the things I'm into, and really can't imagine what I'd be like if I hadn't discovered my interests. Especially comics and classic monsters. I think a lot too about my friends and family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Don't really have a regimented plan for my Fridays or any other night of the week for that matter. I could be at my computer writing something or browsing the web. I could be playing a video game, reading, or watching a movie. Otherwise, I'm out with friends or chilling at their place. So the possibilities are really endless.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As I mentioned earlier in my profile, I don't drive. And I know that you will all feel differently about that, so I wanted to to just take a minute, and explain why that is. I have what is called a processing disability. Basically what that means, is that I interpret information that is relayed to me and react to things slower than other people. After several attempts at trying to learn to drive, I just didn't feel comfortable behind the wheel, and realized that since driving requires a lot of quick thinking, that it wasn't going to work out. While part of me wishes that I can drive, I've come to accept it. It's not the outcome I wanted, but it is what it is. I've also never let it hold me back from doing what I need and want to do. I get myself to work everyday, and when I want to go someplace for something fun, or go meet up with someone, I get out there and do it. And I've learned a lot about getting around through means like trains and buses, and more recently using the Lyft app. And I'm always considerate about helping out with gas or the cost of any activities that I do with someone when they come out to me.
You should message me if
If you like what you read here(and I know I wrote an essay practically. Think of it like a movie. You can't know the whole story from just watching the trailer), then I certainly hope to hear from you. I'm not really the kind of person who has a type when it comes to dating. To me, it's all about connection and chemistry. The only traits that I'd say are required are that you be real, open, honest, and genuine. I'm looking for something real and long term, so certainly write me if your goals are the same in that regard.
