Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm friendly, intelligent, articulate, educated and enjoy banter.
I'm highly technologically competent, having a deep knowledge and
conceptual understanding of many things in engineering and science.
I also enjoy and need things of the arts, music and literature.
When it comes to troubles, you can count on me to be there for you,
and with you. I'm a scientist, college professor and entrepreneur.
If you're not too uptight, I can be insanely funny and keep you in
I'm world-traveled, have actually lived in many places in the
world, enjoy having fun with exciting things to do, in the water,
at the park, cookouts, camping, hiking, biking, walking,
beach-coming, sailing, boating, fishing, scuba. I don't care for
watching sports - I prefer to PLAY. I have no idea who won the
Superbowl and I don't care.
I work out regularly and take care of myself, I cook my own meals
from scratch, bake my own bread and avoid processed foods. I'm very
food-conscious, and particular about a healthy diet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most of my work involves research in nanotechnology. Today
nanotechnology is a fast-growing field that can change the course
of human history, as previous technologies have, but in a much more
profound way than ever before (short of Guttenburg's printing
press). Current studies cut across every region of scientific
research, from biochemisty to quantum electrodynamics.
I have a few hobbies, my most current of which is sailing. I have a
notion of taking a few trips to far places in the world (either by
air or by sail). I have had many other interesting hobbies and
past-times, and I never consider myself done with them (except
perhaps the kick-boxing - well never again in the ring, but I still
practice at the gym with the bags).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
many things. I have my limitations, but very few things present a
challenge to me. It's both interesting and odd that the personality
section of my profile, based on answers to the questions, shows my
highest shift off the norm as "more arrogant." This was brought to
my attention by one of you ladies, who suggested that it might be a
bit of a turnoff. I'm sure it is to some ladies, who perceive this
as caused by a lack of self esteem (and so, self confidence).
This inspired me to do a bit of "soul searching" of course, in the
form of internet searches, which traditionally leads to... well,
nothing much, because everyone's trying to sell you something and
not really answering your questions. This, as with the many
adventures I've had in my life, is an interesting, journey, so I'll
continue to follow the path and see what I find.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I'm eccentric. I like it this way. If you're looking for a
down-to-earth kinda guy, I'm NOT him.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a good-sized personal library (it could be bigger) of real
books, and a huge digital library. I prefer real books. I enjoy the
arts in their many forms, and my tastes vary widely. My food
choices are pretty strict, since I eat only healthy foods, although
I make the occasional exception.
My movie choices also vary widely, but I'm partial to science
fiction. I don't go to the conventions, and I won't wear the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, the sciences, music, movies, sailing (and the sea), and an
occasional glass of wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

that little hair, sticking out of the tiny little mole on the lobe
of your left ear. It bothers me.
On a typical Friday night I am

at home, relaxing in front of a movie. If there's a good movie that
I want to see, I'll be off to the theater. Sometimes I might be out
shooting pool with friends. I wish I would do more, but I hardly
ever plan for things.
Sometimes there's something that comes up, and I make my way to it
(opera, ballet, plays), but only with a date or friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think my privacy has fairly well been invaded, here, already.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. (and most important of all) is if you actually want to be in
contact with me.
2. you like me and we have halfway decent match numbers. Actually,
I'm not sure these match numbers are that good at predicting good
outcomes. it seems, the more I match someone, the more alike we
are, and I'm kinda looking for my opposite. On the other hand, it
frightens me when I see a seemingly nice girl and it says she's 85%
enemy. What does that mean???
3. If you message me, I'll message you back (at least the first
time - or until things get disturbing).
4. You're still trying to decide what you want to be when you grow
up (you're young at heart).
5. You want to.
