Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Headline version: Unabashed intellectual and fitness guy seeks
I'm in a pretty good place right now - good job (I'm going to be
traveling from mid July to the end of September so I don't think
I'll actively pursue a relationship until October), good physical
condition and health, good hobbies that I've so far been pursuing
on my own. All things told I'm pretty satisfied with my life, but
at the same time I think it would be even better to share it with
I'm not really searching for "the One", though if you are we'll be
sure to figure that out in due course. I guess I'm looking to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working hard, exercising hard, not forgetting to play a bit. I
program industrial control systems (which is like getting flash
tours of cool equipment all the time :D ) which involves travel
sometimes but I get to work from home a lot too. I take full
advantage of that... in a still-getting-work-done kind of way. I've
been building up my hiking and running distances more than trying
to get particularly faster. I'm also studying: brushing up on my
languages, refreshing on some basic topics and trying to work
towards research I'd like to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pullups? Troubleshooting complex systems? Picking up new skills,
mental or physical (I can Salsa now!... a bit...). Problem solving.
Cuddling too. I've been complimented on that :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently it's my confidence that gives people that first
impression. I can live with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My all time favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo. I tend to
vacillate between sci fi/fantasy novels and college
Movies... good ones? I love cheesy kung fu flicks, especially the
really old ones with awful dialogue. I go in for a bit of horror, a
bit of sci fi/fantasy, not much romcom, not many action
There are some shows I like, but I haven't seen a lot of the big
popular ones these days: those seem like the sorts of shows to
watch with people. I did watch all the Doctor Who on Netflix, but
I'm waiting for the current Doctor to show up there to binge watch
that too :D.
I don't like country or rap or too sappy pop or too ragged heavy
metal, but other than that it's on a song-by-song basis. My Pandora
stations are: Oud Funk, Enya, No Light No Light, Yoga (perfect for
napping :D ), Parov Stelar, George Frideric Handel, Celldweller
& James Dooley, Malaguena Fantasia, Coriander, Lost (Chill
Version), and Salsa. If that tells you anything then you have weird
tastes. Too. :P
I'm walking a dietary tightrope these days. I'm trying to balance
low(ish) carbs with low saturated fat. It can be tough getting
enough calories without overshooting the sat. fat! Other than those
guidelines anything goes, but especially Indian and Mediterranean
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to work on.
Some way to work out.
Something to think about.
Oh, and the internet. I really like that.
And something I have had to do without but don't want to: the human
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Fitness, what I should be doing now, what else would look good on
my walls :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making dinner in? Going out somewhere? Visiting my folks for
dinner? Maybe you'd like to help decide this one ;)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You really should just message me, that's all. Unless you smoke...
that's kinda nasty. But especially message me if you're into health
and fitness stuff and can geek out about something fun. Strong and
self-sufficient are definite pluses. So say 'hi'! Or 'poo'. Yeah,
'poo' is definitely funnier.
But really, you should message me if you want someone to get
excited about thunderstorms with.
By the way, I think I should mention I'm allergic to cats and dogs,
and also just about to spend most of the summer out of town for
