Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a graduate student/TA at the University of Florida. I am a
very talkative, somewhat outgoing person who loves to learn new
things and meet interesting people.
I'm mostly interested in meeting new friends and maybe finding a
friend with benefits (emphasis on the "friend" part). I'm in a
committed, open relationship with a woman.
I like guys who aren't shallow, who I can do "guy" things with.
Fellow gaymers are my ideal guy friends, but I can get along with
pretty much anyone who shares my hobbies/interests.
A little about me:
I enjoy good conversation, no matter what the topic, whether it's
something as serious as history, art, religion, or science, or
something entirely goofy. I thrive on people who have
interesting/creative ways of thinking. I can talk about anything
with the right person, for hours on end.
I have a sarcastic sense of humor and although I am generally very
patient, I strongly dislike contrived rules and herd
I also enjoy games of all kinds and varieties: sports, card games,
board games, or role-playing games. I used to play video games, but
I've largely stopped. I do still play a shit-ton of Kerbal Space
Program though; that game is awesome.
(And finally, I'm very uncomfortable talking about myself!)

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Someone who can make me laugh
Chalk, Pen, or Pencil
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
* Dreams. I love dreaming. I used to keep a dream journal, back
when I was obsessed with lucid dreaming.
* The barriers that keep people apart from one another.
* The ideas of remoteness and isolation; places or times that are
beyond human reach or essentially unknowable.
* The Universe on long timescales. Mathematical chaos.
* Space exploration.
* The "best" way to do something - anything. Seriously, I'll sit
there for twice the time it takes to get something done just trying
to figure out the best way to do it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing and enjoying a night with friends, either in or out.
I'm just fucking with you. Of course I'm in my office, working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own dice with 20 sides and sometimes I roll them to make
imaginary people do things.
