My self-summary
I'm a Gemini, I don't believe in astrology but I do agree some of the tenants are possibly true. For example, I am very adaptable to the environment that I'm in. If you're going to use someone's profile to decide if you are compatible with them, then you need to get off here and go back to the bar scene. True compatibility can only be assessed by talking, not by reading a pre-written diatribe.

My biggest flaw is that I'm different around everyone. With my family I'm a jokester, easy going, fun. Most people would say that I'm on a great mood if I'm being rude.

I'm a talker, I love a good conversation and I am looking for someone that I can have a life long conversation with.

I'm not the rebel or the bad boy, I'm the guy you eventually want to bring home to meet your parents.

And finally, I know there are hundreds of beautiful women out there, but only a special kind of woman will bake lasagna and bring it to you at work.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time at a children's history museum that is also kind of sort of an art museum. Aside from that I'm working on finishing up my book on the Civil War in the Indian Territory. Update: Book is under contract, getting ready to submit it for publication!
I’m really good at
I am a competent cook. I can cook and bake pretty good and not just from a box. I can bake cookies and brownies from scratch and know how to make many meals without a box! I am a debater, I like to talk about things and I can do that with facts. I have the ability to talk about anything, even things I know very little or nothing about.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my goatee or how I walk. I'm disabled and when I walk it is pretty apparent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Romantic Comedies and Comedies. I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith. I also like teen comedies like the American Pie movies (not necessarily the straight to DVD movies, though I do like American Pie: Band Camp.) I enjoy some action movies like the Die Hard films. As you can tell I'm into "collections" and among the movies I have that are series: Terminator, American Pie, Jay & Silent Bob (also called the Jersey Trilogy) Harry Potter, Twilight, Underworld, etc. I don't have a favorite actor though I do have a favorite actress: Felicity Jones. My favorite filmmakers are Fatih Akin and Kevin Smith.

Books: Fiction, History, Philosophy, Theology, etc. My favorite historians are Joseph Ellis, Francis Bremer, Edmund S. Morgan and Gordon Wood. I also enjoy certain periods of time and a lot of my history books reflect that; I own several biographies on Queen Victoria, I have several books on Nazi Germany, Puritans, American Colonialism, American Founding, American Revolution, Native American History. As far as philosophy is concerned I am mostly interested in political philosophy. I enjoy reading Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon, Thomas Aquinas, Maimonides, Averroes, Al Farabi, Dante, Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke; I also enjoy certain American political theorists like John Adams. Among my favorite philosophic works are: Dante's On Monarchy, Averroes' On Plato's Republic, Machiavelli's Prince, Discourses and Florentine Histories, Locke's Two Treatises on Government, A Letter Concerning Toleration, Hobbes' Leviathan, Aristotle's Politics and Plato's Republic. But before you think all I read is heavy material, I also read fictional works like the Harry Potter series, The Beautiful Creatures series and Twilight Saga. I also enjoy literature like Homer's Illiad and Odyssey, Virgil's Aeneid, The Catcher in the Rye, Fahrenheit 451, The Scarlet Letter among others.

Shows: I watch several contemporary shows: Grimm, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Supernatural, Arrow, Flash, Constantine, Big Bang Theory, Chasing Life, Bates Motel, and Last Man Standing. I also own a lot of shows no longer on TV like ER, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Chuck and House. I also like mini-series like Centennial, The Winds of War and War and Remembrance.

Food: American, German, Italian mostly. I like Genghis Grill, Rudy's BBQ, TGI Friday's, Del Taco, Pluckers to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Books, Friends, Education, Food, Entertainment and my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Though I've never left the United States I consider myself cultured. My closest friend is Indian, and I know several people from other parts of the world including central and south america, eastern, central, souther and western Africa, the middle east, India, Japan and Germany. I deeply value other cultures and religions.

I've also traveled extensively throughout the United States. I've been to all the southern states except Mississippi and Kentucky, all of the great Plains states, both southwestern states, and all of the former middle colony states. I have limited experience in the Midwestern states but I've been to Ohio, Illinois and Indiana. I can't wait to visit new England and the West.

If you are prejudice in anyway we will not get along. Take the time to get to know people, learn about their culture and you will grow as a person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since moving to Irving my Friday night's have consisted of staying in, going out with a friend or hanging out at a local restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have spina bifida myelomenigocele. And I kinda have an obsession with snoopy. I have a small collection of snoopy stuffed animals and snoopy Christmas ornaments.
You should message me if
You have to show up to get it.

I'm spoiled, my closet friend and I almost always hang out when we say we will and don't cancel on each other. When I was 18 I met a girl through MSN chat, she became my best friend. During my college years she'd come down and pick me up and we'd hang out, during summers she'd text me at 11AM and just tell me to get ready she was 5 minutes away. A few years later I reconnected with someone I went to middle and high school with, she was always up for hanging out and routinely begged me to come hang out with her at her job even though she knew I hated it.

These three people have spoiled me. I understand you have other friends, a job, family, kids and a life outside of me. I'm at that stage where I want my best friend to be my family and for us to have kids of our own and the only life we have is each other.
