Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where to start... well I'm definitely a geek, you really can't not
be a geek when you study and practice Electrical Engineering.
On that note, I really don't know why, but I took school too
seriously and have ignored the part of my life that involves
relationships. I have friends, of course, and I can't explain how
and why I got to 23 years old this way, but I did.
There's nothing particularly wrong with me unless you have a
problem with sarcasm. I am definitely shy, at least in the
beginning, but I tend to warm up very quickly if the other person
initiates communication first. You'll know you've reached that
point when almost everything coming out my mouth appears sarcastic.
I never mean any harm by anything I say (and if I do, I'll let you
know explicitly or clarify it if you question it!)!
I do enjoy philosophical conversations of varying nature. Ended up
wasting an hour and a half of company time speaking with an intern
about humanity, religion, and spirituality earlier this summer. - I
enjoy this in moderation and I don't enjoy it when dealing with
very opinionated people.
I'm not sure of what else to talk about here, so I'll stop for
MESSAGE ME, SEEM SANE, I'LL RESPOND!
If okcupid says that I respond selectively it's because I get a lot
of inappropriate messages and messages from people who really have
no business messaging me (I put some stock in the okcupid matching
system - if you're like a 50% match, I probably won't
Oh yeah, my name is Scott.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am starting graduate school at Tufts for Electrical Engineering
and up until then I worked at a well known government research lab
in the region. I will continue working there part time, but I have
no idea how much. Now that I've broken out of the depression I fell
into while an undergraduate, I'm trying to be more social.
In the past few months I've started going to the gym, so my "body
type" might change sometime soon. (I stopped going when the
semester started - I plan to start again and keep it up through the
spring semester, though!) < Shit's funny, but I think I'm
FINALLY getting back into a regimen. I left the above text for me
to laugh at myself. < 7/8/12 STILL LAUGHING AT MYSELF, I'M A

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty modest, but you could ask me.
That's my excuse for not knowing what I should write here.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was younger: that I looked like goddamn Harry Potter.
The bane of white, skinny nerds with glasses.
How short I am (I personally love it!).
How I dress sometimes - ever since I came out of my depression I
tend to like wearing bright colors.
I'm left-handed. People always get thrown off when they go to use
my computer at work. Scissors are the tool of the devil.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm working on building the attention span to read more.
I've been on a 90's rock kick for awhile. I also like classical,
especially when I'm trying to get work done. I used to (and still
do somewhat) like harder rock and metal. I listen to 92.9 and
attempt to tolerate all the bad crap they play. (I'm really sick of
hearing the same Nirvana songs over and over and I get angry when
Sublime comes on.)
I have not watched much TV or seen many movies lately unless I'm
with Matt. I think my attention span is so bad (or I'm too
hypnotized by the computer) that I can't even sit still to watch TV
anymore - unless he's there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some sort of companionship

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future, especially exactly what I want to focus on in graduate
school and whether or not I want to work in the private or public
sector. I want to teach someday, so academia is also a
How to improve my life in every way, especially socially.
I think of a lot more "profound" things as well, but they're
usually fleeting and variable in nature. I think of absolutely
random, but sometimes interesting shit while driving especially.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I stayed a virgin until rather recently, probably because of the
two conflicting forces of "I don't think I'm gay" and "I'm not
interested in women (because I am gay)."
Also, I've only come to terms with my sexuality (very) recently,
but I wasn't surprised in the least when I figured it out (I was
laughing at myself out loud when I came to the absolute conclusion
that I was gay).
There once was a line here mentioning I question if I'm bisexual or
not - I think I can safely say I'm 100% queer. < I'm leaving
this because it's funny how sure of myself I was. I've never been
with a woman, but I'd say I'm a 5 on the Kinsey Scale.
Not sure where else to put this, but I should note that I am very
much a 100% honest and genuine person. Sometimes the truth is
counter-productive, and I may break my own rules once in a blue
moon, but I can be trusted to be honest and loyal through and
through. I literally don't know how to lie properly and I also
don't like being lied to.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have similar interests, intelligence, and motivation in life.
I'm also interested in making friends, too.
Also if you're bored and just want someone (possibly) interesting
to talk to.
I'm more approachable than it may seem.
You also have nothing to lose by doing so.
