My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am assertive and passionate and I need someone who can match that. Passion is more than just sex -- it's a way of thinking, of relating to life, intellectually, emotionally, taste for adventure, the whole package.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like to say that I'm fully bilingual -- I speak both English and Engineer. I am a geek and a nerd, and proud of it.

I'll probably never have another job as rewarding as helping NASA scientists win a Nobel Prize, but I like having a job I can pour myself into, helping to make software fit people instead of the other way around.

Ten years ago I lost 47 pounds by diet and working out every day (aerobics, weightlifting, a bit of biking) but after a few years I slid and the weight came back; now I'm starting the process of losing it again. If you need someone who is fit and athletic right now, we are not a match.

I like cooking myself spicy food and a spicy life. ;-)

I haven't done much travelling in a few years, there are still a lot of beautiful and interesting parts of this world I want to see. My favorite travel souvenir is probably a one-way ticket on a slow boat to China; the picture of me holding a baby kangaroo in the Australian Outback is another great one, as is the left-handed Swiss Army knife I got in Zurich, the first year they were made. (A true lady carries a knife to defend her own honor with, right?)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping out a friend in need.
Unravelling complex computer problems.
Playing strategy boardgames.
Instantly spotting the typo or spelling error on the page.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile.

And then how short I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Sadly, my collection of classic rock is mostly languishing gathering dust; I do miss the car stereo that got stolen, though I haven't replaced it. (I used to listen to a Spanish hip-hop station on my way to work, though I didn't understand the language.) I can enjoy the very best of almost any genre. I think the last concert I went to was The Arrogant Worms, though.

When I go out to dinner with a large group of friends I'm usually at the spicy end of the table sharing a variety of dishes family-style. Always happy to try new cuisines and dishes. I have some knowledge of fine wine/dining and fancy cooking but it didn't really stick.

I'd rather watch TV shows that don't even try to be meaningful than ones that try and fail. For some reason I haven't been watching much TV lately, my DVR episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Office, Community, The Daily Show, and the Colbert Report are expiring unwatched. I liked the BBC Sherlock more than Elementary, though I watch both. I only watch sports in football season.

I liked Firefly a lot more than Serenity.

2014 update: I watched the first episode of Breaking Bad, said "meh", and didn't go back. A few years later I binge-watched the whole thing, mesmerized. Not sure what caused the difference. John Oliver gets it so very right so often. Modern Family is funny when they don't go over the edge into sitcom-painfully-stupid.

My tiny collection of DVDs includes both The Princess Bride and Hair. Oh, and the complete set of Schoolhouse Rock videos. I never found any of the Coen Brothers movies so compelling I had to own them, though many are worth watching more than once.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen :-)
Intellectual challenges
The Web
New experiences
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing strategy board games with friends -- designer games like Power Grid, Race for the Galaxy, Brass, Outpost, 1830. If the only modern board game you've heard of is Settlers of Catan, well, that's a start...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I'm by myself dinner might be a can of beans mixed with some microwaved frozen vegetables and spices.

Also... when I set this profile up years ago I was clueless enough that I used my real first name as part of my nickname.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something to say and something to share.

You are looking for a long-term monogamous relationship (probably not with the first person you date, but that should be your goal.)

You are highly intelligent and wantneed your partner to be the same.

You miss having someone to cuddle with and kiss goodbye on your way to work.

You think lying in bed together with books or laptops on a lazy Saturday morning sounds sweet and romantic.

You think playing competitive strategy games with your partner also sounds sweet and romantic.

You know that there's a lot of beauty in the world and you want to get out into the big room with the blue ceiling to see more of it.

You're not sure how you would squeeze dating into your active social life but are eager to find out.

Your long-term goals for a relationship include a passionate and vibrant (and maybe even kinky) sex life but you know you shouldn't talk about it before getting to know me as a person.

I shouldn't have to add this, but: you are local to me (close enough to get together for a cup of coffee after work) and relatively close to my age. I want someone I can see regularly and am likely to have social context in common with.

And I hate to end on a negative note, but if you believe that homosexuality or premarital sex are sins, think that flag-burning should be illegal, or indicate on your profile that you are interested in casual sex, we're unlikely to be compatible. I'm not a sweet demure Christian lady no matter how much you might dream otherwise. :-)
