Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I find it hard to write self-summaries, because though I think I
know myself quite well, articulating a description of myself,
particularly in this kind of context, is difficult for me. I also
have trouble with job applications.
I'm older than I look.
I just got glasses for reading and computers. I can now claim to be
a real four-eyed nerd. I'm into science and science fiction,
roleplaying games and photography.
While my profile says "single" that's not strictly accurate. I am
in a long-term open relationship. I'll describe my family to you if
you ask. I use "single" because OKC has no option for "In an open
relationship", which is what I am on Facebook. "Married" is totally
inaccurate, and "seeing someone" tends to imply that I'm not, uh...
One more note about my nick. "Doctor" is not a protected term. I
can call myself "doctor", you can call yourself "doctor" if you
want, without any qualifications at all. I am not a real medical
doctor, though I have an interest in most subjects and am good at
research. Don't ask me about your medical conditions - ask a proper
Damn, some of these match questions are really awful. So many false
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for a charity NGO, cruising until I make enough money to
quit and become a gentleman of leisure. Should only take another
fifty or sixty years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
avoiding filling out profile essays.
I'm good at a number of things, none of them especially practical.
I can use a sword, play the guitar, take photographs, and I am
cursed with a complete lack of fear of public speaking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You know, I honestly have no idea. I tend to think that people
don't notice me until I do something worth noticing, and then
that's what they notice.
I've never asked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Now this is a hard one. I like the things I like. There's always
new things to like coming along.
Books - I like books, though currently with internets and good TV I
don't read as much or as quickly as I used to. I read science
fiction, fantasy and pop science.
Movies - I'm not much of a movie buff. I like escapism and fantasy.
Not horror. Star Wars fan since childhood.
TV - Again, escapism and science fiction. Babylon 5, Warehouse 13,
Primeval, Futurama, etc.
Music - Oh my. I started learning music at age 7, and though I
don't currently play anything regularly, I still retain the love
and appreciation of music that I grew up with. I don't so much like
bands or artists or genres, I like individual songs. If it's
musically interesting, I'll give it a go, regardless of what genre
or category it gets shoehorned into.
Food - I am not a vegetarian, though I am quite fussy about the
meat I'll eat. I will frequently order veg if I don't feel that I
can trust the quality of the meat. Sometimes I'll order veg just
because it looks good, and I don't realise until halfway through
the meal that there's no meat.
I should also mention that I'm a fan of Dan Savage. If you don't
know who that is, go look him up. He is one of the most excellent
human beings on the planet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My smartphone (aka. external brain)

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a family and a long-term partner, though she and I have...
drifted apart sexually and are no longer sexually active. My family
is important to me. But so is being sexually fulfilled. The
relationship is totally open - she has another partner who fulfils
what she needs. I, currently, don't.
You'll notice that "casual sex" isn't in the "I'm looking for"
section. That's not an oversight.
Oh, and I should mention that I used to have an account here under
a different name. I deleted that account and started over. If you
think I look familiar, that may be why.
You should message me if
