My self-summary
Recent surveys suggest that I'm totally splendiferously awesome times a hundred thousand to the tenth power (+/- 2.2).

Currently I'm into weight-lifting, prayer and worship, fun food, silliness, pingpong, boardgames, movies and books, and random adventure.

I hunger to meet someone with a well-developed heart and brain.
What I’m doing with my life
I have three major goals: Like C. S. Lewis, I hope to write beautiful Christian fiction; like Thomas Aquinas, I'm working on a careful metaphysical view of the world; and with God's help, I intend one day to be a strong and loving father.

Jobwise, I've finished a Master's in theology from Duke University, and I'm one year away from finishing PhD in philosophy from UT Austin. The Ph.D. is the qualification for being a college professor. In the meantime, my work is research and part-time assisting with a college course.

Here's an example of a poem of mine:

---
"The Second Law of Thermodynamics"

A note within a symphony,
A word with a page.
A day within a calendar,
An hour in an age.

The finite in infinity,
A star within the sky,
One moment in eternity
To live --- and then to die.

And so will all humanity
But perish in the wind.
His history will be forgot
And never known again

If life is but biology
Or God is but a meme,
If man seeks to beget himself
And serves no greater theme.

The curtains fall. The stars burn out.
No eulogy is read.
We actors leave an empty stage:
The universe is dead.

I’m really good at
teaching and passionately explaining things. Games, whistling, making friends. Pursuant to that last remark, I'm good at lifting very young people (as well my 22 year-old sister!) up on my shoulders and giving them a twirl. I'm also good at persevering in physical activity (say, weight-lifting or soccer) to the brink of exhaustion. I have a talent for being extremely silly on occasion (I recently wrote a song called "Funky Chicken", complete with dance steps, and performed it on camera). And I think I'm pretty good at being an attentive friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sometimes, it's my Southern manners. I say "sir" and "ma'am" to my elders and I open doors for ladies.

The ability to pretend that 8 is equal to 6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Friends and acquaintances --- their colorful and diverse personalities.
On a typical Friday night I am
one day older than I was the night before. This does not apply to weeks when I skip Thursday by time travel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I have a slight cold and am very provoked, I can produce an imitation demon voice that scares my own socks off.

  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–27
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You have a strong heart, an active mind, a commitment to God, a great sense of humor, and a love of good clean fun.

You meet at least two of the following:

You know the meaning of the word "whimsy."

You read and/or think. Or at least really want to read and/or think.

You like spending time in relaxed ways --- board games, walks, movies, sitting on the couch and talking, cooking together.

You are occasionally up for adventure (including but not limited to tree climbing, roller coasters, road trips, and ridiculous meals).
