My self-summary
I'm a nerd. A card carrying, tattooed, punk rock playing, anime binging, ren faire attending, comic con wandering, sci/fi reading, video game playing, wrestling watching, star wars loving nerd.

I'm looking for someone with similar interests, for adventures, movies, traveling, dinners, random awesome dates, gaming, cuddling, netflix/hulu marathons, the whole nine yards.

I've been single for a long time, so, I kind of know what I want... But, then again, when you meet someone that just clicks, all that stuff can fly right out the window.

I guess the most important things I'm looking for in a person are honesty, patience and understanding. Someone that either has similar interests or at least an interest in getting to know the things I enjoy because she likes me. I'm the same way. If I like someone, I want to enjoy what they enjoy as well. Patience is super important too. It's been a long time since I've been in a relationship, so, I may not really know what the hell I'm doing at times lol.

Oh, and just because I do a lot of inside stuff, doesn't mean I don't enjoy outdoor activities as well. Hiking, jogging, climbing trees, archery, picnics, other random outdoorsy adventures are a blast and I'm 100% down to do any of them. (The animal lover in me isn't a big fan of hunting though, especially just for sport, so I don't want to do that).
What I’m doing with my life
Working at Amazon right now. Also going to class for IT stuff. So my weeks are pretty hectic right now. Especially Tuesday through Friday. Work, school and gaming at my friends comic show (nerd, remember lol)

I also really want to work out and get in better shape. I'm not big, just kinda chubby, but, I really want to get rid of that. It's just easier with a partner so we can schedule stuff like that together and keep each other motivated and encouraged.
I’m really good at
I'm a damn good singer, and a passable guitar player. I do karaoke every week on Sundays, at the Bearded Lady in Fort Worth, so I can at least get some singing in.

I'm a dog whisperer... really though, I'm good with all animals, but dogs, especially click with me.

I'm also good at making people smile, especially when they truly need it. It's a gift.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, they are usually the first thing people compliment. They are kind of a unique color. Other than that, I have a real quirky sense of humor. Also, when I first meet someone, I'm usually pretty shy. This could mean I don't say much (although I'm 100% paying attention to everything you say/do), or, I'll start spewing random word vomit to try and make you laugh.

Or, if I'm doing karaoke they'll notice that I can sing my ass off.

And finally, they might see me running off to find animals.. or rescue them... I've been known to run into traffic to save critters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books----
The Dresden Files, Sandman Slim, The Odd Thomas Books, Iron Druid series, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and then we get into comics. Spider-Man, Punisher, Locke and Key, Sin City, Preacher, etc etc etc.

Movies----
Star Wars, Super Troopers, Kill Bill, The Incredibles, Die Hard (all of them), Tombstone, The Marvel Movies (Iron Man, Avengers, Ant-Man, etc etc), Hobbit/Lord of the Rings... Honestly, tons of movies. Comedy and Action are my favorites.

Shows----
Agents of SHIELD, Bob's Burgers, South Park, Futurama, American Dad, Daredevil, Brooklyn 99, etc. Just started kind of getting into Black Mirror on Netflix. It's pretty cool. I love binge watching shows, so if there's one you think I should check out, let me know. I'm a big fan of animated shows obviously... Anime included, though (and I know I lose nerd points here) I'm not a big fan of subtitles.

Music----
Music is life to me... so, I'll try and cut this down to as few bands as I can. Rise Against, Authority Zero, Less Than Jake, Alkaline Trio, Ballyhoo!, Strung Out, NoFX, Pulley, Teenage Bottlerocket, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

Food----
Italian, Tex-Mex, Pizza, Burgers, sometime (some) Chinese food. I'll try just about any kind of food once though. I like to cook too, but, usually only if I have someone to cook for. I make a kick ass spaghetti (I know, it's not a hard dish to make, but, I rock it).
The six things I could never do without
1. Music/My guitar
2. My friends
3. Movies
4. Animals
5. My Computer/Phone
6. Humor... and love... my life would never be complete without them, and I know it said 6 things... but, I don't always follow the rules lol.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In an effort to keep this thing from being too long, let's just say at any given moment, my mind is thinking about approximately 83461064t1098345 things at the same time.... yes, there is a t in that number... It's supposed to be there to show the absurdity of the amount of things I am thinking about. If you want to know, just ask, hell, it could start a pretty awesome conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
On Friday, after work, I'm usually at my friends comic shop doing some gaming. Pen and paper rpgs. Fun stuff. If I'm not there, then I'm either trying to catch up on school work or I could possibly be checking out a movie or maybe doing some karaoke somewhere.

Sunday though, always karaoke at the Bearded Lady in Fort Worth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't keep secrets about myself really, so, in all honesty, I'd tell you whatever you really wanted to know about... this can be kind of off putting for some people lol, they don't expect me to be so direct about my life. The way I see it, the things I've gone through have made me who I am, so why hide it. I try to live life with as few regrets as possible.

I mean, if you have skeletons in your closet, they will tend to haunt you at the worst possible times, so, you might as well open the door and have conversations and joke around about them.

But, just for the sake of the site: I have a few guilty pleasure bands... Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and Panic at the Disco... Damn, I just lost all my punk rock cred... good thing I don't care about that sort of thing... What can I say? Their shit is catchy.

P.S. If I like you. I'm going to act like I like you. None of the "let's see who can act like they like the other the least" games. That stuff is no fun at all.
You should message me if
Any of this sounds interesting. You'll be glad you did, I'm pretty damn awesome.

Especially if you play video games or have a nerdy side that you embrace (or even want to embrace) with no regrets. I would love to find a partner for Ren Faire adventures and cosplaying at conventions.

You want to go to awesome concerts with me.

I respond to 99% of the messages I get fyi, so don't be shy.
