Sincere compliments and laughing at my jokes are the gifts I value
most. I enjoy serendipitous journeys through thoughtful
conversations or places. I often exploit opportunities to provoke a

description. On Myers Briggs I am an INTP. Ultimately, I do have an
eye toward a long-term relationship, but for now, friendship and
meeting people is my main intention.

Since the hamster died from my leftovers, cooking by myself offers
diminishing returns. However, I will slice, wash, peal, and mix
anything, I will get the beer, tell dirty jokes, and clean the pans
-- but I probably should not be left unattended when the burner is
on - just kidding about the hamster.
I am casual about eating out; I love good food but don’t want to
dress to the nines to eat it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
