Broad sweeping labels seem to be the fastest way to convey large chunks of our personal identity, although people are not labels, I do identify somewhat with the following: Atheist, liberal, feminist, nerd. My nerdom encompasses many different interests from science fiction to science fact, from anime to philosophy. If it's nerdy and doesn't require that I have large muscles dripping with testosterone, then I probably enjoy it.
Now for what I'm looking to get out of this site. Firstly, I could always use more friends. I do want more than that, but I'm not going to put the burden of being THE ONE on, or immediately dive into the bed of, someone I've just met. Some would say that this puts me in risk of landing in the friend-zone, but I say it's the only sane way to go about this. I don't believe in the friend-zone anyway (attraction to a person does not confer a right to that person).
