I'm a believer in gender equality, a Keynesian, a believer in alternative views of beauty, a Pragmatist (in the philosophical sense), and a LGBT ally.
Politics is both my life and my career (so far, anyway). I was part of the Obama campaign. I'm also a loud and proud Atheist. I'm a huge fan of Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennet, et al, and I've even attempted to write my own book on the whole New Atheism perspective.
Planning for the future is very important for me. I have strong values about what I want from life. I'm not the kind of person that just has a "go with the flow" attitude about the future.
I'm a romantic, but I dislike traditional chivalry. I'm very emotional and extremely analytic. I'm a freethinker, but I live somewhat conventionally. I like making serious plans, but around my friends I also like dumb jokes and occasionally acting silly. I'm a nerdy metalhead, I'm an introvert who works with the public, and I'm open-minded and opinionated.
What I have to offer:
I'm a very sensitive person who can be emotionally supportive. I'm an intellectual who constantly finds new ways to look at things and new ideas, so I hope I can be an intellectual inspiration. I'm extremely health and money conscious, so I live my life with planning and responsibility. I'm also very honest, and I don't have a fragile ego. I'm the kind of person who it's easy to relax around.
What I want:
I believe a great lover should also be a best friend. I want someone who is kind, smart, and brave. It does not matter to me what she looks like, where she comes from, or what her past is. All that matters is that we enjoy each other's company and want to create a beautiful future together.
