Nerds are people who have discovered that there's a lot of deep pleasure involved in thinking and learning. I'm one of 'em.
I like to sing and play music (not necessarily well). I recently started playing drums in my company's band. It's fun to get together and make noise. I also play guitar a bit.
I like to run barefoot. I know you're not going to try it, but you really should. It's amazing.
I have a framed picture of Bill Cosby partly because he's awesome, also because Applebee's was selling the crap on their walls for dirt cheap.
It's hard to say exactly what I'm looking for in a girl. I've liked different types. These profiles are okay glimpses at people, but in my mind, you really don't know much until you've at least interacted in person. There's too much sculpting and analyzing of profiles and messages/responses here. That being said, here are a few things I usually find attractive in a lady.
1) Independence. I'm all for spending a lot of time with the girl I'm dating, but I don't want to feel like you'll have a meltdown if my phone dies. Hopefully you have your own aspirations too. You should have your own opinions. If we can take different sides of an argument and have an exchange, I find that extremely attractive. (As long as you're not just being irrationally stubborn, this ties into the next one.)
2) Intelligence. It's hard to define this since there are so many types of intelligence and most people think they are smart. I just want someone who enjoys thinking. The ability to entertain an idea without necessarily accepting it is nice.
3) Passion. Hopefully there is something you really, really, enjoy or care about. It can be anything. I just like to see fire in someone's eyes.
