My self-summary
Hello, beautiful people! My wife BMinor and I met on OKCupid, and now we're looking for new friends, both with and without benefits.

I am enthusiastic, kind, overly rational, funny, occasionally uptight (working on it), handy, and pragmatic. My goal is to get my shit together as much as I can, and store it somewhere safe like the shit museum.

I'm a textbook INTP, if that means anything to you. I have lots to talk about with INTJs and other INTPs, but I can usually connect with anyone who's not a jerk, even if we're very different. I like genuine people who speak readily about their feelings and opinions, eager people who share their excitement with the world, and intelligent people who use their powers for good. I have very few inhibitions (but not in the "lol you guys let's shout 'penis' in public" kind of way), and I'll try almost any new experience. I give good hugs, I'm bad at picking up after myself, and I love karaoke.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly I'm trying to balance my constant drive for "productivity", heavy air quotes, with relaxation and calm.

BMinor and I bought our first house not too long ago, which is SUPER RAD. I'm digging into home improvement and enjoying it. We have a neurotic Corgi, a young cat who never stops, and three adorable chinchillas. If you've never touched a chinchilla, you do not know true softness.

I'm a Web developer for AOL in Ashburn (yeah, THAT AOL) and my job is awesome. A lot of my free time is spent designing and coding other Web tools, because I am the coolest guy. I'm passionate about gaming -- video games, board games...anything that challenges you, provides a unique experience, or brings you together with friends. I'd love to make a career out of games, or at least dabble a little more professionally.

I really like music, reading, animals, desserts, and neuroscience. I've been trying to get out of my comfort zone and find new hobbies, like marksmanship. Tell me about your cool hobbies!
I’m really good at
Problem solving

Seeing the best in people (and other such naïveté)

Music video games (Rock Band, DDR, etc.)

Going hard at something that I'm interested in

Back, neck, hand, foot, and scalp massage (both platonically AND in the foreplay sense, thanks)
The first things people usually notice about me
My size. I'm 6'4". I could put something thought-provoking here, but anything else is probably going to take a back seat. BMinor told me to put "doofy smile" as #2. Thanks, boo.

The six things I could never do without
1) A lifestyle where I can freely do my own thing and be a skeptic
2) Music
3) The Internet
4) BMinor
5) My imagination
6) Hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
• What life would be like if we had teleportation.
• My failures instead of my successes.
• Whatever Web project I'm working on.
• Boobs.
• Interior design.
• Being a woman. (I don't identify as trans, but it's close.)
• Desserts.
• How amazing it is that everyone is so different, despite all of our similarities.
• Self-driving cars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching TV with BMinor or hanging out with friends. Sometimes I'll even go out for food! You paid for the whole seat, folks, but you're only gonna need the edge.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The only time I was pegged was in college, and we didn't really do it properly, and I've been a little scared of butt stuff since then.
You should message me if
Looking for friends? Hell yes! Let's play video games, do each other's nails, bro out, talk about our passions, eat some food, queue up a bunch of YouTube videos, and maybe catch a rock show in DC. If you want a down-to-earth weekend pal, a gaming buddy, or whatever else, hit me up.

Want to hook up with me and/or my wife? Also cool! We're flexible. Both of us prefer ladies right now, but we're down to meet other couples, and men are not off the table (but please don't be disappointed if I don't reply).
