I would guess that my libido lies slightly below the average male standard, but as I grow older I grow less content with doing nothing but sulking in self-pity and loneliness. Social awkwardness aside, the fact that I'm pretty broke probably already excludes me from peoples' "most eligible bachelor" list (hell, I wouldn't date me!). I realize I'm not leaving the best impression by putting myself down on my own dating profile, but my view towards myself is actually less negative than I'm probably making it seem. I'd rather others discover my positive attributes than list them here.
I don't expect a romantic fling to result from this profile, but I set up this with the hopes of making new friends, expanding outside my comfortable little circle of mostly-white, male, nerdy friends. Above all, I seek others bored with routines, interested in trying new experiences, and find intellectual conversations engaging. More profoundly, I'm looking for people to challenge me, who are not afraid of discomfort, who incite me to question my views, to inspire me to become someone better, people to feed me new ideas. I value this much more than people who simply share my tastes and interests.
