Beyond what the basic profile and the other entries say, I'm newly single and new to the area. I'm a tad (read: rather) quirky, too smart for my own good, and in addition to working as a professional academic, I like endurance sports and activities (marathons, triathlons, hiking, etc.). P90X is quite possibly both one of the best and worst things that ever happened to me.
I've lived lots of places, both here and abroad, and I've seen lots of things, both wonderful and terrible, but I'm always hungry for more. I've got a rather dark and wicked sense of humor, which is all the better for keeping the sensitive romantic inside from being hurt too easily.
I have a penchant for many things geekish (see the mc chris song: "Nerd Girl"), and do a very good impersonation of a homebody, but I secretly love being dragged out for a good time. One acquaintance once described it: "Dude, I would call you the biggest nerd I've ever met, but you're a little too self-aware, much too dirty, and a tad too high functioning socially. You're some new breed of supernerd. I fear for the future of mankind."
