My name is Eric. I'm a mostly optimistic dude trying to find a balance of responsibility and fun in my life. I'm known among my friends for my hugs.
I gravitate toward enthusiasm, easy-going people with a great sense of humor and warmth above all else. I strive to find a balance between being responsible and fun.
Let's run through the rain and catch some Pokémon.
I doubt this is really true, but I feel like the only guy my age who, despite their career aspirations, only thinks about settling down someday. I remember when I was in kindergarten, everyone was asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. Everyone else said a job of some sort. I said I wanted to be a Dad. I'm in no way ready to get married or have kids right now, but that's still true. I've always been a romantic. Don't get me wrong, I hope to do cool career things, but at the end of the day, just being a loving dad and supportive husband is all that matters to me. I guess that's the part of "adulting" I want to focus on in the long run.
I want a best friend. If love comes along, that's a great bonus. But if you just wanna go for a walk and catch Pokemon, I'm up for it.
I'm also good at tennis, ultimate frisbee, and quidditch. I will blow you away at Rock Band. I will moderately impress you at Halo 3 and Rocket League. I will probably lose to you at Super Smash Bros.
Silly, yet thoughtful. (I might be hesitant at first until I learn where our senses of humor overlap.)
and I daydream. It's why I'd never trade my ADHD.

Not that I like sounding depressing or morbid, but how the future will turn out. I wonder what it'd be like if humans disappeared. The rest of life on Earth sure would be better off. Global warming would slow down. Maybe it's just constant subjection to the idea of Donald Trump being president that spawns these thoughts.
This is cheesy as hell, but how my family might be someday. I'm a sucker for love stories and romantic stuff. I imagine how I'll feel when I get married and when my kids are born. I wouldn't say I think about this "often," but I have a hunch I think about it more than most.
You should most definitely message me if you want to talk about any obsessions we share. I love nerding out with others.
