The checklist goes something like this:
-A wee bit pretentious about video games? check
-Craft beer? (I almost typed "craft bees") bzzzt!
-Boardgames? you betcha!
I'm pretty much a big kid, an unconscionably responsible big kid.
I'd love to meet people who have some sense about them(without being Mr. or Ms. serious face), have a healthy respect for the sciences(if not a true understanding, because who can keep track of it all?) and realize that the political extremes are both equally wrong.
I love to hear about people's problems, it does me more good than talking about mine... If you're really awesome or interested in something I like, I can talk for a while too, but that's all too rare.
I did recently win both hottest and best flavor in a hotsauce competition.

Also, 2 of the last three girls who kissed me were lesbians... I guess I'm the kind of guy who gets along well with women who don't usually like men, and I'm not quite sure what to think about that.
I'd love to meet just about anyone and see what the chemistry's like (platonic or otherwise), because that's far more important than a list of hobbies or favorite things.
