As a nerdy engineer type, OkCupid really helps make dating
understandable to me. I can relate to multiple choice tests,
probabilistic models, and percentage ratings! I also appreciate the
"Enemy" rating, because I need some good enemies. And finally,

Some of my favorite activities are tennis, soccer, biking, and West

What I’m doing with my life
I stay pretty busy between work and my hobbies. I also recently bought my first house and am learning all about the exciting world of home maintenance.
I’m really good at
I once shot the moon on a physics test (get every question wrong and you get an A+). I also have an unusual talent of accidentally leaving the house with my shirt on inside out and not noticing it for hours!
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that shirt on inside out? Is he really wearing wool socks with
sandals? But seriously, people usually say I'm nice, dependable,
hard-working, smart, and funny. I am INTP on Myers Briggs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mostly non-fiction, I like to learn! Thinking Fast and Slow is my latest. I'm fascinated by the human brain. I've also read a lot of Malcolm Gladwell.
Movies: I'll watch almost anything but not horror movies. Just got around to seeing the new Star Wars, which is a funny story because there were only 5 people in the whole theater.
Shows: Breaking Bad, Amazing Race, Workaholics, Parks & Rec, South Park, The Voice, Shark Tank, The Challenge, Daily Show.
Music: Almost anything except country. Lately I've been checking out a lot of lesser known artists on YouTube and there are some amazing singers out there.
Food: Yes please

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have attended an event called Dating For Nerds.
You should message me if

than sending lots of emails.
A few qualities I look for: dependable, caring, outgoing, good
