While an instantaneous (cosmic!) connection, complete with resounding 'click' noises is what many hope for, I'm more interested in the question of whether I can build something from the ground up with StrangerX. Answering this, for me, is a slower process, but no less intriguing, and includes such normal but wonderful things as friendship.
About me: I am a researcher/engineer who likes to sing, read and rock climb, and cares deeply about people. I wanted to keep this portion adjective-free, so I've compiled a somewhat arbitrary list of things about myself that might help paint a picture of sorts.
I like grey, cloudy days at least as much as bright, sunny ones. I enjoy being among pine trees, reading a research paper and singing about equally. Two activities from ancient times that I still find very satisfying are solving integrals and sitting on swings. I enjoy having something to push against -- a difficult problem at work, say, or a hike up a tall mountain. (Having said that, the shady oak grove nearby is actually as pleasurable to walk in as the top of said mountain.) My yoga practice is active, meditation practice is slowly reviving, and Tai Chi practice is sadly almost dead. In retrospect, the times when I have been alone and (unintentionally!) lost in a forest, or in a place where I didn't speak the language, have been the most memorable parts of those trips. I love maps of all sorts and always look at all the airport layout maps in the back of inflight magazines. While reading articles online, I sometimes start speaking out loud to the writer. (Strangely, they never speak back.) For the right person, I would seriously consider moving.
