The one thing I am passionate about...
Some of my favorite things in life, in no particular order: computers and technology, sci-fi (books & tv/movies), Philly sports teams, rock music, sushi, astronomy. I love shooting pool, and usually manage to get out once a week to the local billiards room.
I typically spend my leisure time
I watch some TV, I spend some time on the computer, I like to catch a movie every now and then. I also like listening to music and podcasts. I love to get out to the pool hall whenever the opportunity presents itself. When in a relationship, I like to spend as much quality time with that woman as we can manage; it doesn't really matter what we do, as long as we're together, enjoying each other's company and having fun.
The most influential person in my life has been
Communication and honesty. Any relationship is doomed to fail if you can't talk to each other about anything and everything openly and honestly. Oh, and my ideal match would be a natural redhead! :)
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm intelligent, articulate, and a little bit of a perfectionist. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right the first time.
The last book I read and enjoyed
A series by an author named John Scalzi, starting with the first book in the series, Old Man's War. The series is about Earth's future interstellar colonies and their struggles against various intelligent and warlike aliens. The interesting thing is that humanity's military uses 75 year old recruits (because of their life experience) and rejuvenates them to make them into soldiers. What they do with the DNA of the people who commit to serve but die before their 75th birthdays is a really neat twist!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My sobriety. I have over 2 1/2 years sober.
- My family. My mom and my siblings have always been there to support each other.
- My job. I work for a very popular technology retail company that is doing very well selling computers, phones, and music players.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My sense of humor. I think I come across as being too serious sometimes, but I enjoying laughing and making other people laugh. When my siblings and I get together (rare anymore as we're spread across the country), we have a tendency to let the irreverent wit fly freely.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Articulate, Easy-Going, Intelligent
A little more about me
I plan to do whatever it takes to make this work. I've had enough of not being respected and treated well, and I know I can make someone very happy if she lets me. You know that old adage about nice guys finishing last? Story of my life. It may sound cliche, but I am looking for my soulmate here. Someone I can just be happy with and make happy, who will be my companion, my lover, my best friend.
