My self-summary
Blah blah blah
What I’m doing with my life
Hello,

I'm a low key kind of guy, more often than not I'd rather spend an evening at home with a good book than socializing at a bar. I still enjoy going out, but let's say every other weekend.

Typical weekend activities; working on a car, some home renovation/remodeling project, Netflix, taking a cruise on the Bike, and occasionally going shooting.

I guess I'm looking for a relationship where we have that natural connection. A good symptom of this would be if we ended up talking, about anything and everything, till sunrise and not wanting it to stop. (preferably holding hands while wandering around downtown)
I’m really good at
Anything technical or mechanical; assembling, dis-assembling, repair, troubleshooting, all of it is my element. I am the neighborhood mechanic/handyman/electronics guru. My interests show around my house, my living room is a home theater, practically every room has some device in one state of modification/repair or another, its a cluttered mess [shrug] but I'm comfortable. :)

Edit: Wow that sounds corny, but I'm going to leave it up for postarities sake. Some preface though: I come from a lower middle-class background, where we could very-rarely afford a mechanic or handy-man to address life's inconvenient challenges. So Dad largely taught himself how to deal with all of that, from carburetor rebuilds to plumbing/wiring a house addition. And he saw fit to pass that ethic on to me: "If another human performed that task, then dammit so can I."
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm "that quiet guy".
I like to listen to people, mostly because I suck at small talk. You wanna talk books, politics, or religion then I'm your man, but the little minutia of life I can't really get motivated about. So I sit and listen till something interesting comes up.
There's and old saying that I can never quite remember (Confucius maybe?) "It is very difficult to learn while speaking." That kinda describes how I am in a group of people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fantasy and SciFi are my reading genres of choice, Dragon Lance and Star Wars specifically. Although I've recently discovered Urban Fantasy and will proudly admit to being a Dresden Files fan (seriously i dare you to point out a better author).

Movies include the above with the addition of action and a little drama; Man on Fire, The Professional, and Dark City would be on the short list.

Music; Nickleback, FloggingMolly, Ludo, StoneTemplePilots, CrashTestDummies, VelvetRevolver, BloodhoundGang, Infected Mushroom, (Late) Johnny Cash.

My dietary habits would definitely be considered American; meat, potatoes, cheese, and vegetables are my three favorite foods. I'm open to, and have tried just about anything, but that's just what I always end up coming back to.
The six things I could never do without
Something to read.
Something to tinker with.
Someone to share them with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is there really someone for everyone? And if so how do you prove it? And if two people are on opposite sides of the planet and have no reasonable expectations of ever meting each other does the initial assertion still qualify? ):-P

I take great pride in my smart-assitude.
On a typical Friday night I am
A) Working on a car in the garage.
B) Sitting at a bar reading a book.

50/50 chances on either.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch anime, like a lot. Seriously, get involved in a decent quality anime and you'll realize how shallow/repetitive/manufactured most american shows are (except Daredevil, but I suspect there's someone on that writing staff with anime experience). My opinion only.
You should message me if
You're looking for an intelligent conversation.
