Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First a few words that describe me, then I will say a bit about
what they mean to me:
Introverted: I often don't say much, especially if there are a lot
of people around. I am not afraid of social interaction, but I can
have a hard time approaching people and trying to start up a
conversation. I am at my best one-on-one or in a small group
setting; otherwise, I am likely to just sit there listening to what
others have so say and thinking about it.
Intelligent: I graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in
Chemistry. I also studied Geology and am a fan of the sciences, in
general. I have a lot to share, but it can be hard to get me to put
it into words.
Feminist: As a man, I guess it is controversial to associate
yourself with this. But. I do not view women as objects,
possessions, lesser beings to be conquered, etc. I believe females
are our equals, with just as much potential as any male.
Unfortunately, we live in a society that makes it very hard for a
woman to be taken seriously if she has dreams and goals that are in
areas generally reserved for men. I want a partner in life whom I
can respect, who will share in the decisions along the way, whose
opinions are valued. I do believe in chivalry, to a certain extent,
and will open doors for you when convenient, etc. But I'll also
open them for anyone else who happens to be in the right place at
the right time. I guess it might be better to describe as common
courtesy than chivalry.
A few other thoughts:
I much prefer working outdoors, as opposed to at a desk in some
My sense of humor tends to be on the dry and/or sarcastic side.
Many people have no idea when I am joking.
Don't fear the agnostic in me. I am not militant about it, and I
won't try to convert you, as long as you don't try to convert me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an environmental consultant.
I also sell gems and minerals. Right now, I do about two gem shows
each year and travel to Tucson each February to stock up on
inventory at the largest gem show in the country.
I'm also working to heal myself. Physically, mentally, spiritually.
Trying to get better at meditation and learning about myself
through dreams, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
science. I majored in chemistry (minor in Geology) in school. And I
I can juggle up to six things at one time (though just barely).
But. I know people who can do way more.
I'm pretty good at disc golf.
I am also a good listener. Possibly too good. Sometimes I think I
should say more.
I would like to be better at playing a musical instrument and/or

I've been told that my eyes are very memorable on a few occasions,
though I have never been able to get them to say why, or how.
I tend to be on the quiet side.
Sometimes the first thing people notice about me is that I can ride
a unicycle while juggling three knives.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read A LOT as a kid, much less these days, but I still love to
read. I'm currently reading "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by
Ken Kesey. Some authors that I have read(and enjoyed) extensively
include (in no particular order):
Raymond E Feist
I don't really watch much television. If I had to name a few shows
that I enjoy on occasion, they'd be Scrubs, That 70s Show, Breaking
Bad, Big Bang Theory.
Music: I can get down with most forms of music. Except a lot of the
country and rap genres. I grew up on classic rock, so I guess rock,
in general, would be my favorite. I have been to many
concerts/other live music events throughout the years.
Some bands that come to mind to whom I like to listen include but
are certainly not limited to:
Live (early albums)
Stone Temple Pilots (early albums)
The Dandy Warhols
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
I like food of all kinds. My heritage includes Italian, so I can
cook pasta and have pretty high standards for Italian restaurants.
Thai is definitely a favorite of mine. I've had Ethiopian several
times and it was very good. I am game for trying out new cuisines.
One "food" I absolutely abhor is mayonnaise.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

To be honest, I don't like this question. Never is a pretty heavy
word, and I don't like to use it lightly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things that I shouldn't be thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I need to figure out how to love myself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you want to. I don't bite.
...you want to travel the world.
...you aren't looking to jump right into a marriage track,
committed relationship right away. That's a lot of pressure.
...you are comfortable with meeting in person before too long. It
is so easy to hide behind a screen. True compatibility is best
judged face to face.
I suppose I might be down if you just want to make out, too. ;)
