My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I adore astronomy as it provides these beautiful images of unfathomable things. Such as the birth of a star that shoots out a gas cloud that is longer than our galaxy. There is just something about realizing that my brain cannot comprehend an object or idea that I find incredibly alluring. It is exciting to run into the current limit of human understanding and then hoping to be alive when we figure out the answer.

Do a Google image search of Earthrise. Then search for Pale Blue Dot. Those two things are some of the most awe inspiring and staggering images I have seen in my life.

Basically, astronomy gives me feelings.

What I would tattoo on my body:
"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love"
"Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of magic"
"We are made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself"
Also, maybe an old fashioned heart tattoo with the names of my nieces in it.

In my opinion, being able to laugh at just about everything is an incredibly important talent. Life is pretty damn funny when you think about, and I find that humor whenever possible.

Also, I am good to people and things. So there is that.
Further, I am not good at writing. Simply read on for proof of what happens when you ask someone with ADHD to fill out a profile. Central themes? Coherent narrative? Structure of any sort? Not gunna find it here.

Blarg.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working as a paralegal to gain the necessary experience to finish up the screenplay for my film Paralegally Blonde. (First half true, second half is not)

I am also trying to earn enough money so I can buy a trip to the Moon, where I will settle down and build a Moon House, with a Moon Lawn and a White Picket Moon Fence. Find me a lovely lady with childbearing hips and make us some Moon Babies.

If space is too far and too costly, I would settle for a couple of rides on the Vomit Comet.

Just started a new job as an Ombudsman Paralegal. Basically, I protect the rights of people living in long term health care facilities. Yes, this is an awesome job. Yes, I am very aware of this. Yes, women in their 70's tell me I am very charming ALL THE TIME.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My ability to recall what I have read is, to be modest, quite astounding. With any book I have read, I can recall most of the major plot points. I routinely read a book half way, set it down then pick up 6 months later, all without forgetting what is going on. Strangely, this ability rarely translates into getting dates or super models falling madly in lust with me.
*ironic sigh*

Learning new things.
Punning like a father.
Escaping a posse on horseback.

Things one cannot mention in polite society.

Finding hilariously bad music videos on youtube. (check out b4-4 Get Down, it makes my life immeasurably better)

Telling hilariously true stories about my life. Anything from my first kiss to almost getting falsely arrested to an awkward attempt to ask a girl out. (It involves an out of body experience)

Being a good friend. I have had multiple friends compliment me on this. They tell me "Thank you for being a friend, you traveled down the road and back again. Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant"

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Learning something new or being there when someone else learns something new.

Being GGG, and also Dan Savage.

An epi-pen. Deathly allergic to sunflowers. To date, sunflowers have made two attempts on my life. They will not get a third, this I swear.

Reading damn good books. History books are especially important to me, without the chance to learn something new about our history, ugh, life wouldn't be as interesting.

Nights spent inside with friends.

My nieces. Not going to lie, I adore them. Chances are, my nieces are way better than you. Honesty. It's what I'm all about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How hard online dating is for people with learning disabilities. I mean, lots of women hate bad spelling and grammar so people who have learning disabilities must have a really hard time meeting women. My older brother has a learning disability where he has lots of trouble spelling and he ends up spelling phonetically a lot of the time. So, "nite" "to hundrid" etc. So, ladies, sometimes the guy isn't stupid or lazy but just has a learning disability. Don't discount him out of hand, okay? As Lady Gaga would say, he was born that way.

Avoiding death by sunflowers.

Finding good moments to shout out "aaahhh, fudge muffins" angrily.

How I would handle first contact with an alien species (Hint: Don't freak out)

Evolution.

Sex positivity.

How much I really want a guy friend who will sing Spice Girls' songs with me on Karaoke nights.

Morality of driving.

Why don't we, as as society, find single moms incredibly sexy? I mean, they have to manage a lot of stress and complex things. They have amazing skill sets! So sexy!

Astronomy. Again, you should really look into astronomy. It is freaking awesome.

The vastness of space.

How much I would love to date Dan Savage. That man is freaking awesome.

How awesome it is to live in a world in which the song "Opposites Attract" by Paula Abdul exists.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Singing really badly at a Karaoke bar. On the line up: Soul Decision "Faded" and "Higher Love" by Steve Winwood

or Board games with friends. Especially Cards Against Humanity and Fiasco.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy the Carly Rae Jepsen song "Call Me Maybe" in an entirely non-ironic fashion. That song makes me legitimately happy. It gets me dancing and generally making a fool of myself. And it is not a "guilty pleasure" okay? There is no guilt, only joy.

Related note: I have purchased the Spice Girls Best of cd. It is awesome.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have the eyes of a confident, intelligent, and daring woman then I am very interested in meeting you. There is nothing sexier or more desirable than a woman who is comfortable with her body and her sexuality.

If you believe that everyone should be excellent to one another, you get points (double plus bonus points if you thought of Bill & Ted).

Are you Allison Janney? Then contact me, if you please, as I want to take you out to a fancy dinner then ballroom dancing.

Lindsey Stirling, I will wait for you and your violin always.
