My self-summary
Most people wont read this anyways, but I'll be brutally honest. I just ended a relationship as of Feb 6 2014 after being cheated on a second time in the past 2 years. So yeah I probably have a few trust issues. To some people it may sound like I'm jumping back into dating too soon, but when you've been cheated on you are made to feel worthless and the best way to fix that is find someone who appreciates you. Don't worry though I am a fairly self-aware person and I know I'm able to recognize my emotions, I'm not just trying to find a replacement for something I lost or fill an emptiness. I'm just trying to find a better match than the one I thought I had with a previous partner and hopefully build a relationship on honesty and openness.

I don't do the Poly thing. I don't believe you can share true romantic love across multiple partners and people who do are deluding themselves because they are unhappy and selfish. Love is a finite thing, as are all emotions, they are measured in the amount of time and energy you invest into them and the people you love. Sorry I feel the need to say that on this site though since I keep getting invites and messages from people who are Poly. I also am NOT a one night stand kind of guy, I find it a little disheartening I have to mention that. Casual sex is just not my thing, I require emotional attachment to someone before I begin a sexual relationship. I'm kind of a walking contradiction in this because I believe in a progressive world and mind set, I have friends who are Poly and Pansexual they know my stance on it and disagree. I accept not everyone has the same views in the world and I'm not about to try and force mine on anyone else.

I consider myself an enlightened liberal minded feminist, but just because I'm liberal doesn't mean I choose the same life style as others. I am a true liberal in that I believe everyone has the right to live the life they want and choose. I will never tell someone that the way they want to be is wrong this includes those right wing fundamentalist. I don't agree with that life style, but it doesn't mean you can't live it. This tends to cause more confusion in people than I intend to and I'm sorry for that. I believe that gender norms and stereotypes should not be forced upon people and the fact society does is wrong and should be seen for what is really happening. At the same time I recognize that some people choose to align themselves with those roles and will not chastise them for it. The only thing I ever ask of anyone in my social circle is to truly question why they do what they do and to ask themselves if it is what they really want.

I sound kind of abrasive at the moment, but the truth is I'm not. I have a very good network of friends who love and care for me, they know me as a joking silly person who really cares. I'm not going to say I'm always nice, I can be a real ass at times too; after all we are just human. When I am in a relationship though I commit myself 100% to that person. I'm the kind of guy who gives back-rubs if you're having a rough day, I remember all your favorite things and try to surprise you with stuff in our relationship. I like to make people smile, and I'm one hell of a generous lover. This may all sound like I'm tooting my own horn, but isn't that the point of your self description to list your qualities?

I don't know what it is I end up liking in a partner, I just know when I do. I don't believe a damn thing about the Match rating on this site. Even if I do the day I originally filled out those questions was a long time ago and I'm not that person anymore. Hard to go back and change them all though so I've been lazy about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished my undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Minnesota: College of Biological Sciences in ’07. I currently work at the University in the Masonic Cancer research Building doing Natural Killer Cell and Leukemia research. Now if I haven’t scared you off or put you to sleep yet YAY! I'm not sure what else I am looking to do right now aside from being mindful of my existence and continue in my chosen career. This means I'm looking at always continuing my scientific education and will hopefully be working on a masters degree in the near future.
I’m really good at
Cooking, games, bicycling, and making people laugh (usually at the most inappropriate moments possible :-P )

I love bicycling and I make a point to try and ride to work year round. There are very few times I don't meet that goal (ie so much snow I can't physically ride in it).
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told I have the devils eyes, a sexy voice, and I can do one hell of a creepy evil genius smile when prompted :-P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a nerd, like uber super nerd! I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I watch Doctor Who (David Tennant is my favorite), Star Trek (TNG is my favorite), Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. Anything else in this genre I will most likely love as well.

I read book series like The Wheel of Time ( Love Matt!), Hitchhickers guide, and Discworld. I'm also starting (even though I hate myself for doing it) the Game of Thrones books. I read a decent amount, but not ALL the time. I love reading, but when I start books I get so consumed with them I tend to shut out the world tell I'm done. I have such a hard time putting them down I find it easier to not pick them up tell I have the time to spend on them.

Food wise I love a lot of different things. I have yet to find a meal I don't enjoy at some level (aside from terrible fast food or chain restaurants). I am a vegetarian though and I have been one now since 2007 so I'm probably not going to change that any time soon. I don't mind if you eat meat as long as you don't mind that I don't.

I play tons of different board and card games with friends. In fact several of my friends are game designers at Fantasy Flight Games in Roseville. I even do playtesting for a few of their products. I love the strategy involved in games, as well as sometimes just playing something silly to unwind.
The six things I could never do without
1) A computer
2) A bicycle
3) The internet
4) a good book
5) ... air
6) ... water :-P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That only in the light of impermanence can you understand the true meaning of no-self and only in the light of no-self can you understand the true meaning of impermanence.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to redefine existence. Who's interested in joining me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The toe next to my big toe is like half an inch longer than my big toe ... no joke it's freakish I can pick up stuff and type with it :-P

I am a recovering fat man (note I have lost over 120lbs in the last 2years) and I am still working to improve my physique. I am not a super athlete or anything, but I am just trying to cultivate a level of physical health I can be proud of.

I some times dance while ridding my bicycle, this isn't really a secret as I am usually in public. It also sounds probably more complicated than it is. It really is just standing on my peddles while I bounce around and bob my head to whatever jam is blasting on Pandora at the moment.

You should message me if
I'm looking for a long term committed monogamous relationship. I don't need someone to be happy, I am happy on my own. I've realized though I enjoy having that intimate connection with another person. I want a partner in the adventures I have in life. I'm also getting to a point in my life where I am interested in starting a family. I'm not saying this is an immediate goal of mine, but it sets the tone for the type of person I am looking for. I want a partner to at least be heading towards that point in their life as well and have it be something we can discuss at a later date. If this sounds like something you are looking for please message me.
