My self-summary
I'm never really sure how to start these summaries, but here goes...

I moved to Denver after finally deciding to pursue my goal of moving west. I've always liked the mountains and Denver was an ideal location both professionally and socially. So far it’s been a good move, now I’m at a point in my life where I want to find someone to share it with. Life is always more enjoyable when it isn't experienced alone.

I love to travel and to discover new places, be it around town or the world. I've been in Colorado for a while now, but there is always room for someone to show me that obscure gem of a restaurant or something unique. I also rock climb, hike, bike, run, lift, and all too rarely: scuba.

I'm a scientist with an occasionally dark but goofy and geeky sense of humor, but really a romantic at heart. I love spending time with someone special, and I take relationships very seriously, it's important to me that I find someone that does the same.
What I’m doing with my life
Working (doing my job), working (fixing things on my house), and working (out at the gym). I find time to relax though.

Honestly, I think I've got my life pretty much "figured out" since every aspect is pretty damn stable... except for the part about finding someone to share it with, hence why I am on this site.
I’m really good at
Remembering completely useless facts. (you want me as your trivia partner)

MacGuyvering random things.

Photography.

Whistling like a Disney professional.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd say my curly hair, especially if it's 'going rogue' if I've neglected to get it cut.
After that, probably my goofy (and sometimes dark or irreverent) sense of humor.

completely eclectic taste, there is something from every genre that I like, it seems. Been making a point to take note of artists that I enjoy, so here is the list so far: Black Keys, Muse, Avett Brothers, Coheed and Cambria, Anberlin, The National, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Rodrigo y Gabriela. More as I remember.

Food:
Thai, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Italian, Sushi.
...I really like foreign cuisine, and I'll try almost anything once. Unless it contains pickles. Pickles should not be classified as food.
Also addicted to iced tea and root beer.
The six things I could never do without
Books,
internet,
transportation to Ohio for visiting family,
good food,
my camera,
and Oxford commas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Space. Science. Zombie invasions. Entropy. Politics. Justice. My life, what I'm doing and where I want to go next. Books. TED talks. Games. How I'm going to convince my non-Denver friends to move to Denver.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually like gardening. Not useless plants, though, I only plant what I can eat. I also enjoy making home-cooked meals, especially when I have fresh ingredients (yay garden!)

Oh, and I love cuddling. Yeah yeah yeah, I'll admit it, but you need to admit you want a guy that likes cuddling.
You should message me if
-you are looking for a relationship that will last
-you can hold your own in a conversation, be it in person or text
-you like to travel
-you like the outdoors as much as the indoors
-you are even the slightest bit nerdy/geeky or appreciative of high-brow humor
-you like to stay active (I'd love to find a significant other who wants to climb/run/lift with me, not a requirement though)
-you think we'd get along
-you have more to say than just "hi" or "how are you". I don't respond to these messages as they are likely from statistic collecting bot accounts
-just an fyi, I have zero patience for games at this point in my life. I am looking for a partner and will simply ignore those who I think are using this site for their own amusement.
