My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There are two kinds of people in this world; people who live to *have* and people who live to *be*. I'm in the second group.

What I want most is to discover the limits of my potential and grow into the person I'm meant to become. I want to look back someday on a life well lived where I made hard choices, pushed myself, and gave more to the world than I took. How wise can a person become? How virtuous? How learned? How great a source of strength, serenity, and empathy to the people around you? I see life as a journey to answer these questions.

If I wrote to you first, you can be sure that I read your profile and questions very closely. This is because I respect myself, you, my time, and your time.

While we're talking about matching questions: my own choices are actually pretty awesome "drama-queen repellent." So, if our "match" scores are very low or our "enemy" scores are very high, then it's good odds you're about two dozen different flavors of crazy. Sorry if the truth hurts, Crazy Lady!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've got a pretty good job doing techie stuff in civil service (your tax dollars at work! Thanks, by the way!). I'm also a National Guard "weekend warrior," and I'm bridging my humble community college education into something more robust.

Someday I see myself either running my own start-up company, investing in other peoples' start-ups, or doing some sort of work that lets me think profound, strategic thoughts and come up with big ideas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- My job
- Cooking
- Listening
- Being empathetic
- Choosing restaurants
- Putting strangers at ease and striking up conversation
- Arguing an opposing opinion in a civil, mature, and unemotional way
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm incredibly polite. :-)

I don't have vocalized pauses when I speak (e.g., "like," "um," or "you know"). Because of this, I tend to. Pause. At times when. Most people just. Say "like" or "um." There are. Some people. Who don't. Care for this. That's fine. But. Consider yourself. Warned.

I'm a very un-Indian Indian guy and a very un-military military guy (by the way, if you've been reading this profile in an Indian accent, please go back and reread it).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many!
Nonfiction: "As a Man Thinketh," "Manufacturing Consent," "Predictably Irrational," "Democracy in America," "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People," "The Road to Serfdom," "Hackers and Painters," "Wherever You Go, There You Are"
For one thing, lots of comic books / graphic novels (and I am entirely unapologetic about this).
Others --
"The Wind in the Willows," "The Hobbit," "Starship Troopers," "Ender's Game," "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," "1984," "Siddhartha," "Oliver Twist," "Le Morte d'Arthur"

My taste in movies is pretty similar to my taste in fiction, but I can sit through anything (yes, I'll even suffer with a smile through your horrendous, soul-killing Hugh Grant / Ryan Gosling rom-coms). I just can't stand "stupid comedy" (almost anything with Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Jim Carrey, or Asheton Kutcher).

I have a strange love of rewatching iconic scenes from my favorite movies. Think: Al Pacino's speech at the end of "Any Given Sunday," Alec Baldwin's speech at the start of "Glengarry Glen Ross," or the action scenes from movies like "Gladiator" or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

I LOVE the documentary "Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth!"

Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, South Park, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, MST3K, Vikings, Avatar: The Last Airbender / Legend of Korra, TEDtalks (ok, not technically "TV"). I can sit through most anything that's not lowest-common-denominator ("Honey Boo-Boo," "Jersey Shore").

If you're really into watching sports, please don't get too frustrated with me if I don't know that your favorite team's goalie is good at hitting touchdowns from behind the three-point line when the bases are loaded...

I can't imagine caring too much about what kind of music you like. My own tastes are pretty eclectic (the last three ringtones on my phone have been "Layla," "Bittersweet Symphony," and "Sweet Child o' Mine"). If our tastes are really that different, I'm sure that some combination of compromise, tolerance, earplugs, and headphones can help us bridge the gap.

I LOVE to cook!

Ethnic cuisines? Almost all of them! Particularly: Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Japanese (yay sushi!), Middle Eastern (yay hummus!), African, Chinese (unless it's one of those shady, greasy hole-in-the-wall places), Irish...

I think the only ethnic dishes I can't stand are blood sausage (which tastes like it was harvested from the bottom of a goldfish tank), borscht (which actually tastes the same on its way from your stomach to your mouth as it did on its way from your mouth to your stomach), and gefilte fish (if you've had it, you know...).

There's something about farmer's markets that always puts me in a better mood.

I'm VERY much a foodie and also a...drinkie? That is, if something is labeled "Coors," "Lipton," or "Folgers," I'm probably not going to drink it...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, health, curiosity, laughter;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Career, love, truth, politics, technology, spirituality...

What kind of world my two-year-old nephew will grow up in...

How to keep getting better / faster / stronger / smarter...

How to make the things I cook even more delicious...

How to make sure I'll still be able to do chin-ups when I'm 80...

When I'll get around to traveling to all the places I want to see: Malaysia, UK, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Chile, Argentina, South Africa (maybe when I'm a spry 80-year-old chin-up paragon?)...

Why it is that people will judge thirty-something and forty-something men for liking comic books or video games, but not also judge them for spending an entire Sunday on the couch watching grown men play with a ball...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...spending time with family or friends



...going to bed early to get up early the next day. There's something that's just sublime about the quiet of early weekend mornings!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The following are all co-equal in my "most private thing I'm willing to admit" category. None of these things, as it turns out, are particularly private, but they're the "most private things I'm willing to admit":

1.) I own firearms and a pickup truck, but, amazingly enough, don't have "a personal relationship with Jesus."

2.) I'm an unapologetic nerd/geek/whatever you want to call it. If you noticed the sci-fi/fantasy/comic book nature of my entertainment tastes, then also consider how this is compounded by the fact that I work in technology. If this is at all unappealing, then don't walk; RUN!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're not a "serial dater": that is, you're on a dating site because you want to find a committed, monogamous relationship and not because you're bored.

You don't "Vocal Fry" ( ), punctuate spoken conversation with the word "hashtag," sigh and/or roll your eyes a lot, or otherwise act "too-cool-for-school."

Your profile doesn't have some atrocious cop-out like "I hate writing about myself, so if you want to know anything, just ask" or "does anyone even read these things?" Notice how my profile doesn't have the equivalent male cop-out of "I like to work hard and play harder!"? Effort is sexy, and clichés are not.

You respect peoples' time, and the words "play it by ear" don't come out of your mouth when you're making plans.

You know what the word "autodidact" means, or you're curious enough that you just now looked it up.

You aren't viscerally afraid of firearms or people who own them.


I'm looking for the last single woman in Western Washington who doesn't have cringe-inducing piercings (tongue, nipple, septum, lady parts, or gaged anything), a prescription for happy pills, impenetrable cynicism, or a credit card balance that's multiples of what her rent is; My match wants romance, stability, and "happily ever after." Are you her?
