My self-summary
I have the traits of both a kid and a cranky old man. It is endearing, I assure you.

Similarly to a cranky old man, I don’t stay up too late, don’t like loud noises, and I don’t drink to excess. I guess kids don’t drink to excess, either, in a perfect world.

I exercise and have done two marathons, so, I’m in pretty good shape.

My hair was disappearing, so, I finished the job. Must remember sunblock…

My job… It’s easiest to say that I work in computers. It may seem boring, but I work for a company that provides chair massages and a foosball table, so, I’m pretty ok with that.

I appreciate proper grammar. I am that grammarian about whom your mother warned you.

I’m introverted, but, I assure you, fun. At least my cat thinks so.

I’m not a flowers and baubles kind of guy, but I’ll 3D print you a cool trinket. Also, I’m thoughtful; I will remember something you thought was funny once and surprise you by adding it into a conversation. Probably not on the phone - I’m not a big phone talker, but I’ll text you some pretty awesome stuff.

I’m pretty brave. I’m actually letting an ex-girlfriend write this (she wanted to attest to my skills in bed, but I told her that’s not how I want to come off before meeting someone).
What I’m doing with my life
My profession is to help coders improve their code by finding bugs. A glorified exterminator, except I just find them and let other people kill (fix) them.
I’m really good at
Observational skills.

Fixing your computer.

Unawkward silences.

Listening to several conversations at once while reading my book.

Word play.
(Message me if you want a Words with Friends buddy!)

Staying friends with women after we’ve both decided the relationship isn’t going where we want it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm generally quiet and possibly come off as aloof.
It's not intentional; it's just that introversion thing.

I also tend to be very subtle in my sarcasm (playful, not mean).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
If my brain was removed from my body yet was provided with all of the sensory inputs it expected, would I notice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, relaxing, recharging.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have an Instagram account, but my cat does.
She enjoys applying filters to photos of her dinner.
You should message me if
You have a quick wit and/or are very observant.

You know it is often the company you keep rather than the activities you do that makes most things interesting.

You know that people are more interesting in person than on a dating site.
