I am humorous, brainy, and down to earth
I suppose the biggest thing I'm looking for is a best friend. I know, I know, a best friend on a dating site? But yeah, if you want to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, I think that person has to be your best friend.
I'm an odd duck, I know, because it takes me a while to really connect with people. As with most geeky people I have a bit of social awkwardness, which has gotten much better since I went back to college. As a consequence, it takes me a while to build up the will to take that next step, which... I'm afraid had turned people off.
I can just see most of you clicking "next" already, but if you're still reading, all I ask is a bit of patience. (Either that, or you suggest it) I'm sure that turns people off, and I wish it didn't, but to use a trite and probably meaningless phrase "it is what it is."
So, yeah, if you ARE still reading, thanks! I promise I'm a lot more cheerful when I actually talk to people!
