My self-summary
I find it amusing that we're in an age of advanced technology and modern thinking but some things never change: We are still trying to find that perfect someone amoung millions of people. The bright side is that we do have technology to aid us in our endeavor.

What to say about me? I'm not exactly the average guy in most ways. I feel very strongly about not drinking, smoking or doing drugs. I am a little old fashioned in that I think a woman should be cherished and protected, not exploited or ignored. I by no means subscribe to the school of women are less than equal to men, however. Another way I'm less than typical is that I'm a computer geek but not your average computer geek. The universe indeed has a sense of humor, I am built like an athlete without much effort on my part yet I'm enamored with technology. In typical keeping with my species, I'm shy and not very confident around women. I'm chattier initially via communication online versus in person but I think talking in person is very important to establish a connection and to help me overcome my shyness. Another thing you should know about me is that I'm looking for a long term stable relationship and not just a physical connection either. I want to connect on an intellectual and emotional level with someone that wants the same thing from me.

About you? Well I think all women are beautiful so I'm not hung up on physical appearance really. I prefer nature's version over the media's version of beauty, however. I don't think make-up makes the girl, nor a lot of tattoos and piercings. Not that I would be discouraged by any of the above, I just think women sometimes underestimate their own natural beauty because of the way Hollywood says they should look. I like a woman that isn't afraid to speak her mind and is real. I'm by no means perfect and don't expect that of anyone else. I would really prefer not to have a long-distance relationship so location is important to me.

About us? I want to be able to go on dates and just hang out with you when we both have free time. I'm still learning so patience is a virtue I would greatly appreciate. Honesty is very important to me, and I give the same in return.
What I’m doing with my life
While I love computers and technology, college loans added up too quickly. So I got a full time job to pay them off. Turns out there is another thing I really like, making things with great precision. I got a job as a machinist.

I've recently started back to school at night. I'm working on completing an associate's degree, paying for the classes as take them. Once I get my associate's I plan on transfer to UH and working on a bachelor's in engineering.
I’m really good at
computers , technology and inline skating
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the strong silent type. I don't talk much, I listen a lot. If I'm asked a question I don't have a problem talking, I just don't talk on and on for hours saying anything that pops in to my head. Unless I'm REALLY tired and trying to fight to stay awake.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have too many favorite books, movies, shows, and music to name in this little box. So to make it easy lets say like most geeks i'm in to sci-fi movies/shows and rock (alternative) music, with a couple of exceptions you can ask about if you want.

As for food, of course, i love pizza and pancakes.
The six things I could never do without
My Mac pro/Macbook Pro, my Iphone, some sort of Internet connection, my parents, my grandparents, and pizza. But definitely NOT in that order, family is ALWAYS first, physical stuff can ALWAYS be replaced. I still like camping and doing things that have nothing to do with technology and is way out range of any kind of cell service or wifi connection though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
computers, technology, and how great it would be to have a girlfriend.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home watching a movie or TV show or playing on the computer. Or at the skating rink.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have very few friends (2 at the most) and I've never really "fit in" anywhere before.
You should message me if
You love computers and technology, love reading, love watching movies and TV shows, love SciFi, and do NOT drink (like at all).

I realize now that the above sentence is probably an impossible proposition. So maybe you should message me if you could put up with someone that loves computers and technology, loves reading, loves watching movies and TV shows, loves SciFi, and most importantly can handle my permanent sobriety. On the bright side, you will always have a designated driver.
