As typical of many engineer types, I prefer verbally explicit honest communication, use words as descriptors rather than value judgements, fall into problem-solving mode too easily, and am comfortable with silence.
Do not take a lack of response personally - I go through periods where I don't log in to OKCupid for months, and then I'll be on for days at a time.
I am talented, curious, and intellectual.
Update as of 201410: I just started a new job in SF. Between the commute, remodeling, the new puppy, and climbing, timing is tight; however, queer friends/play partners get bumped to the top of the stack.
