I'm a serious nerd - but rarely serious. I love hanging out, just one of the guys, and then like to dress up and have them not recognize me. I love traveling and trying new experiences but I definitely have opinions on things I've tried. I hate even numbers - primes are the best. I think sharing experiences validates them, but alone time is a necessity. I generally take the stairs instead of the escalator - it's quicker! Does efficiency mean you're lazy? I'd consider myself an active person and I'm one of the few girls who actually does like camping (now spiders are a different story!)
Caveat: I am a very healthy person, emotionally, and I won't fall into all those patterns all your exes did... I am not clingy or overly emotional or overly dramatic. I will either let conflicts go or I will confront major issues directly. I have been accused of being overly rational (even though that doesn't make sense to me). If you need crazy, I'm not your gal.
I like to do crafts while watching horror films.
I used to study physics and did three years of research in labs outside DC (I grew up mostly on the East Coast)... that and I like video games/word puzzles/board games/math puzzles. I occasionally tutor in math and physics. So that's what makes me a nerd, since you are all asking.
I LOVE horror films - anything from Evil Dead to Penny Dreadful to the Exorcist... also Beatlejuice is one of my favs- Fight Club, Casablanca, Love Actually, and period pieces, and action flicks.
TV - Breaking Bad, the Walking Dead, Dexter, House, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Californication, The Office, Big Love, Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Family Guy, Bones... etc... it is my business.
Music - I love Ella, Judy, Frank and Louis! Also Kate Nash is a new fav, the Beatles, Queen, Steppenwolf, Cee Lo, Outkast, almost anything - but not usually country or house.
How to spend my insane amounts of creativity, and not go insane.
And... why is it that guys and girls can't be friends? I don't see what the issue is... it's never an issue from my side.
Also, why I am on a site like okcupid... everyone keeps asking me... I guess it's because I want to find someone who challenges me and is attracted to my mind... (it's a pretty darn sexy mind!)
And.... Why I can't turn my brain off and not keep thinking about everything.... Ha!
I have no idea what to do in the DC area...
And if anyone cares and wants to get really private? I don't even know why I'm on this site anymore... I guess I don't know really what I'm looking for but I sure haven't found it yet. So answer me this: Why am I on here?
And why are all the cute/rad/smart guys too short for me? Such a shame of genetics.
I'm secretly afraid that all the intelligent cute gentleman, in my age range, are either married, gay, or .... missing in the Bermuda Triangle?
If you can realize that sometimes an independent and ambitious girl needs just a touch of chivalry in her life. Trust me I have a lot to give and I am generous with myself and my talents/resources/etc... I need someone who can also be generous with himself.
If you have an interesting question to ask - something more than "How u doin'?" or "What's up?" (I have grammatical pet peeves!)
Also... pluses if you're decisive, spontaneous, funny and over 6 feet helps(I'm fairly tall). I've tried dating shorter than 6 ft... it just never works... sorry, I have tried.
I'm playing the shallow card now... You saw my pics, I need to see you... something that looks LIKE you... No need to be Ryan Gosling (but if you send HIM my way you'll be handsomely rewarded) but do be realistic.
