My self-summary
I'm on the Earth to amuse myself, but you can come along for the ride too if you don't mind irreverent, line-crossing silliness. I like to have worked out, but I hate working out. I like to be outdoors hiking or rowing, and then I like to turn around and stay locked inside working on a project or reading a book to balance it out. I'm an artist and a scientist with a classical education and a love of language. That's code for: I'm going to be painting, writing, telling you why the science in your favorite movie is total shit, and then I'll be explaining peculiar facts about words, especially those with ancient Greek roots, and lamenting audibly whenever you say "less" and mean "fewer" or fail to use a subjunctive when appropriate. I have a love of novelty, and that means you should to too. I take baths instead of showers unless I don't trust the tub. I love to cook, but hate to bake.

Oh yeah, I guess I'm an ENTP. That makes me Sirius Black on the Harry Potter chart, and R2-D2 on the Star Wars one.
What I’m doing with my life
The past few years have been a roller coaster in which I've been working in a lab abroad, ending a relationship as a result, losing both my parents back-to-back, and putting my life on hold for a year. If you want a TMI look at my dark sense of humor, you can read about the insane events involving the second parent's death at my blog http://seeingmomout.blogspot.com

I'm finishing up a degree in something really difficult so that I can probably not use it. I'm also working on a book. Don't worry, I may give you my elevator pitch, but I'm not going to make you read the thing. Until it's done and undergoes a few editorial cycles, I'm not even going to let you read it. I've got various other irons in the fire too, like the company I'm trying to get the will to start and the painting class I'm taking, and the fact that I just bought a guitar last week. I have no idea how to play.
I’m really good at
EVERYTHING!

I'm also not good enough for myself at anything. Perfectionism is a bitch. I tend to be a Jack-of-all-trades but still a master of a few. I have a terrible memory, though, and so in my skill juggling routine, as new ones get thrown in, I tend to drop others. I guess it's a by-product of loving to learn. Maybe that's really what I'm good at: learning anything regardless of how impossible it is and then forgetting it once the challenge is gone.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. What don't you look at me, tell me what you notice, and then I'll start a table or something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm just going to give you a handful in each category, since nobody wants to read a bullshit list all night for a guy they don't know.
Books: Lolita, The Wee Free Men, Of Mice and Men, The Iliad, Old Man's War, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Name of the Wind...etc. Oh and Slaughterhouse Five is clearly the story of a guy with PTSD and not science fiction, what the hell is wrong with you people?

Movies: Amelie, The Game, Moonrise Kingdom, Casablanca...you know, stuff like that. I like them quirky and interesting. I loved the Hobbit as a book, but the movies turn my stomach.

Television: Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Elementary, Sherlock, Community, and Germany's Next Topmodel (don't laugh, there are few better ways to learn German than watching beautiful women say nothing complicated).

Music: I'm eclectic as all hell. I tend to favor things that are visceral and allow for improvisation. I will say that I've not got much appreciation for electro or techno or whatever the kids call it. I like the subtle variations that come from a human hand doing something on an instrument.

Food: I'm all about fresh, good food. I'm going to eat things with gluten in them, things with faces, things that originated in boobies, and things that live on the bottom of the ocean.
The six things I could never do without
Look, I've starved nearly to death at one point in my life. I can do without anything. If I can't, I'll die, and then I can rest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex, food, sleep, and...it seems like there was a fourth...oh yeah, sex.

Don't worry, that just means I'm a guy. I am picky about who I have sex with, and I'm not so much looking for hook up partners.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either out having a beer with friends, out meeting someone new, in having a drink with friends, or in recovering from having been out Thursday and using it as an excuse to work on a project or write.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The answer to this question is in the incredible amount of expository information I added to many of the questions. I'm seriously an open book.

Actually, it just appears that way at first blush. In reality, I keep a lots bottled up for good friends only.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...you are: brilliant, fun, silly, brainy, honest, affectionate, sexual, goofy, non-religious, cute, a non-smoker
...you aren't: a vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, republican, libertarian

There, those aren't impossible standards, are they? Fuck.

*Special bonus points if you: know any amount of German and want to speak it with me until we're so good we can talk crap about other people in public, want to learn to two-step or don't mind that I am crappy but want to practice a lot, love science and art, or have a billion interests so that sometimes it's hard to really do anything you like enough to get anywhere.
