My self-summary
-Marital status: never married
-Basic personality: shy (with strangers), quirky, untrendy, curious, possibly intellectual
-Exercise: I try to walk 2.5 miles everyday.
-Myers-Briggs type: INFP (quiet whimsical sensitive nonconformist, basically)
-Religion: raised Mormon, drifted away around age 18 and never looked back. I'm not anti-religious but not a big fan of organized religion in general.
-Alcohol consumption: minimal. More wine than anything else.
-Caffeine consumption: more into tea than coffee.
-Outdoor recreation: I'm not what you'd call "outdoorsy". I like being outdoors, but not much interest in climbing or sliding down things.
-Special skills: I know tons of music trivia. You name a song, generally I can tell you the artist and year.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a field full of overworked/underpaid people, unless you're a top dog. I'm not a top dog, but I'm trying to get there. I also have ambitions to be a writer, and I've gotten some encouraging news on that front, so that's something I'm going to be pursuing more and more in the near future. (I'm currently working on a novel about a religious cult...I should probably throw a teen paranormal romance in there. I hear that sort of thing is popular nowadays)
I’m really good at
Learning new things and sharing that knowledge, coming up with creative ideas, making humorous comments, remembering things, having a good taste in music, listening, talking, writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My quietness, my smile, how quickly I learn things, that I look younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
First thing I have to say: I honestly don't think that sharing tastes in all these things is a necessity for a relationship. Yeah, it makes for more common ground, but I also think it would be cool if you liked mostly different things, because it would help broaden my horizons.

So, here goes with the laundry lists...

Books: nonfiction. Movies: very picky, generally into classic films and non-lowbrow comedies. Shows: I work in TV so answering this is a conflict of interest.

Music: Nearly 7,000 songs on my iTunes. Top 10 artists with the most songs: Bob Dylan, They Might Be Giants, The Beatles, The Monkees, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, The Band, Vince Guaraldi, The Clash, Van Morrison. Good luck trying to make sense of all that.

Basically, I'm not really into a lot of things that are currently popular. Not because I'm a snob (well, OK, a little bit. I'm an open-minded snob), but because I have my own unique tastes and I prefer to discover things on my own, not follow what everyone else is doing.

Oh, and I'm also not much interested in fantasy or science fiction. So despite some nerdish/geekish tendencies, I don't qualify as a nerd or geek.
The six things I could never do without
Music, books, pizza, spring days, fall days. Even when those things are bad, you can usually find something to like about them. That's five. What else? Six seems like too small of a number of things to not do without. Oh, I know, #6 is a list of things I could never do without that's longer than six items! Kind of like the "wish for more wishes" loophole.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, then walking down the street downtown when I get off looking like a dork with my briefcase. I've seriously pondered buying a saxophone case to carry around so I look like I'm on my way to a gig. (Note: I don't know how to play saxophone)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a private person in general, so admitting to anything could fit here.
You should message me if
You're intelligent, open-minded, not co-dependent and you're looking for a relationship that's a little deeper than just "activity partner with benefits".
