My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Ph.D student at Duke who recently moved to North Carolina from Washington D.C.

Generally speaking, I consider myself the kind of guy who can find the fun in almost anything, but I gravitate especially towards good books, long movies, strong drinks, and deep conversation. Since I'm still somewhat new to the Raleigh-Durham area, I'd like nothing more than to meet a few extra people who are the same way, which is where dusting off my old OKC profile comes in.


Romantically, I'm looking for a partner who's intellectual, laid-back, affectionate, and fun. I'm totally fine with just making new friends (in fact, I usually prefer to be friends with someone before dating them), but if I had my druthers (yes, my druthers), I certainly wouldn't mind having someone to cuddle up with for a night in. Ideally, I'd like to find a partner who doesn't take life too seriously, but is still comfortable with all the "woo woo" emotional stuff that being in a serious relationship entails. Bright, bouncy people who are full of light and sunshine scare the crap out of me, though, so it doesn't hurt if you're a bit of a misanthrope, too.


Scientists, artists, foodies, gamers, geeks, kinksters, and fellow oxytocin-addicts automatically get moved to the front of the line. I'll admit I'm also not the biggest fan of people who hew really closely to traditional gender roles: I like some traditionally masculine things like staying in shape and paying for dinner (if that's okay with you), but I typically prefer active, independent, forward-thinking, initiative-takers to demure, passive wallflower types.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Researching why smart people live longer (Fun, albeit unsurprising fact: They do). Cool, right? I think so too! Sometimes.

Also: Starting a not-insignificant proportion of my sentences with "Yeah! And, actually, someone did a study on that..."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
bad puns and terrible jokes.

Representative example of the foregoing:

Q: What's a mockingbird's favorite drink?

A: What?

Q: Tequila!

A: ...

Q: Get it? Get it?? Tequila mockingbird! :D

(Yes, you can punch me afterwards.)

I tend to speak with tongue firmly in cheek.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Fantasy series are my guilty pleasures. Game of Thrones, The Dresden Files, The Codex Alera, Sabriel, Good Omens, Harry Potter--and Animorphs, from back in the good ol' days when I had time to read 10 books in one sitting and and girls were girls and men were men except when they turned into animals to fight off the aliens <3

Movies: I like comedies and action flicks, mostly. Especially series! The Naked Gun, Pirates, Oceans, and The Dark Knight trilogies are all favorites. And Love Actually, but I will pointedly ignore you if you try to remind me of that in public.

TV Shows: Archer, Arrow, Sherlock, Supernatural, Dr. Who, Louis C.K., Fawlty Towers, 30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks & Rec, Seinfeld. And New Girl, although I sometimes find that hard to watch (see below). I'm also actively looking for someone to start watching Game of Thrones with, if that tickles your fancy.

Comedians: I like Eddie Izzard, Louis C.K., Bill Maher, Jim Gaffigan, and a couple less-famous others. If you don't find any of these people funny, we're probably not going to be a terribly great match.

Music: My music library has everything from George Crumb to Carly Rae Jepsen, and quite a bit that falls in-between. I took a lot of music theory classes in college, so, although it was never my forte (Hah! See what I did there? SEE WHAT I DID THERE?), I also have a bit of a taste for classical or New Music that rears its head from time to time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The interwebz. Because, god knows, I do not have the patience for whatever came before.
2) Stipends. They buy me food.
3) My bed. From midnight to 8am every weeknight, it makes me feel like an angel baby swaddled in a cocoon of cloud candy.
4) Backrubs. 'Nuff said.
5) Those random, bittersweet moments where I decide TO HELL WITH PRICE AND TIME CONSTRAINTS, I'M GOING TO COOK SOMETHING COMPLICATED AND DELICIOUS but then give up and start eating the individual ingredients about halfway through.

Don't look at me like that. That last one is a wonderful antidepressant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's the meeeeaning of stonehennnnnnnnnnnnnnnge?

A giant, granite birthday cake?
Or a prison far too easy to escaaaaaaaaaape?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
in with friends trying desperately to keep a straight face as I take my turn narrating our latest installment of the 50 Shades of Grey Drinking Game.

or out with friends. Scoping out a new bar or restaurant. Watching Netflix. Reading pdfs. Y'know, wild and crazy shit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cannot deal with watching other people in awkward interactions. Seriously. You can put on a movie with monsters and chainsaws and death and blood and I'm fine. But videos like these make me wince and cringe and hide under blankets:
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you can tell me, with a straight face, that you're at least as interested in me as you are in Sylvana the Sloth (I know, I know -- I'm setting an impossibly high bar, here).

Or because I messaged you. That would be nice, don't you think?
