I'm a 31-year-old guy currently attending grad school for my PhD in English; I'd like to teach once I'm finished. I love to read, mostly fantasy and science fiction, and I'm a big movie fan. For books, some favorites are House of Leaves, Beowulf, the Dresden Files series, and The Deed of Paksenarrion, though I have quite a few more. For movies, one of my all-time favorites has to be The Crow (though not the sequels), and other favorites are 28 Days Later, Dogma, and The Prestige, though my tastes tend to vary depending on how I'm feeling.
I have a lot of interests, including video games, RPGs (like D&D and World of Darkness, though I have a fair collection of others), and computers, and I also like to learn more about both history, mostly Medieval, and literature. I like to travel, with the right people; I've been to most of Europe with my family, which is fun for me since I love to see actual remnants of history like old castles and ruins.
I tend to be very quiet in person; sometimes this is my tendency towards shyness, and sometimes it's because I occasionally get lost in thought. It takes me a while to open up to people in person, though I am just fine online - though apparently I'm pretty decent as a singer for Rock Band.
My Match Description:
I am looking for someone who shares some of my interests, or at least isn't completely put off by them. I am looking for someone I can have a long, interesting conversation with, and also for someone who doesn't feel uncomfortable meeting, talking to, or going out with someone who has been single as long as I have. Mostly, I just want to meet someone who I can enjoy spending time with, and hopefully the feeling will be mutual.
