My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings, and welcome to my profile page.

Here is where I attempt to describe myself in just enough detail to make myself sound like an awesome and relatable human being you would like to meet. Should be easy enough; I AM awesome and relatable! And human!

I'm a lifetime card-carrying geek. This includes science, pop culture, sci-fi, and video/board/tabletop gaming geekery - I like to dabble in a little of everything. Thus, my life these days includes Dungeons and Dragons, semi-regular board game nights, frequent reading of Wikipedia, and academic discussions on intellectual topics ranging from the physiological differences between various methods of taking cocaine to the question of how crabs breathe. (Crabs have gills at the base of their legs, by the way. They can absorb oxygen as long as those gills remain wet.)

I am neither an introvert nor an extrovert. I reject your neat boxes of personality categorization. As much as I fit a whole bunch of nerd stereotypes, you're just as likely to find me out drinking (high quality craft) beer, climbing rocks, or doing bar trivia (which I totally suck at) as having a quiet night in. I like to have the best of both worlds.

I consider "tradition" to be a dirty word, and I consider pragmatism to be among the highest virtues.

My primary weapons of humor are snark, sarcasm, wordplay, and obscure references that nobody gets. I don't mind getting into deep philosophical or political discussions, but I'm trying to learn to back off when appropriate. I am willing to listen to the other side of an argument, and I will happily admit when I am wrong or when I have made a mistake.

Politically, I am a bleeding-heart liberal. Fundamentally, I recognize that all people are not born with the same abilities or opportunities. However, all people deserve the same shot at happiness and fulfillment. This simple principle drives most of my political beliefs. So naturally, I support things like universal healthcare, public education, public funding for the arts and sciences, and dismantling the social systems that enforce tribalism and an "us vs. them" mentality, including religion, racism, and war. Fox News would call me a radical socialist, but then that's probably just because I'm somewhere to the left of Cliven Bundy.

I embrace the label of Social Justice Warrior. I support feminism, racial justice, treating trans* individuals with respect and dignity, supporting individuals with mental illness, etc. I don't expect a pat on the back for holding these views - they ought to be considered the bare minimum requirements for not being an utter shithead - but the public dialogue in the world today indicates that apparently these are opinions that need to be expressed, and can't simply be taken for granted.

As such, I will note that I am friendly to those with mental or physical disabilities (including social anxiety or depression), trans* and non-binary people, and anyone else who does not fit into all the "default" check-boxes of an American human.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student. Have been for as long as I can remember. I'd like to be something else some day.

I'm still trying to figure out where I want my life to go. My dream life would probably involve moving to a big city, keeping bees, and running a meadery. In the mean time, I'm trying to figure out what options #2 and #3 entail.

I have no desire whatsoever to have kids. Kids just do not interest me, and I despise suburbs. So in the abstract, my goal in life is simply to have awesome hobbies, great friends, and to stay active enough that I can enjoy them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My grammar is impeccable. It has been many years since I have made a grammatical error.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Like a lot of other people on this dating website, I'm hoping to find a date. So if I sound like the intelligent, charming, funny, handsome (and totally humble) guy you'd like to meet, then send me a message and let's get to know each other. I certainly respect women who buck the social norms and ask the guy out first.

Having said that, I am very much aware of the realities of OKCupid for women. For as much as it's worth, I promise not to be one of *those* guys. I promise to respect your boundaries and your privacy. And if you decide you're just not into me, I won't bother you.
