Who I am :
I'm an Engineer. In life and at my job. I really like learning how things work. I like to analyze and solve all sorts of problems. I sometimes get the urge to build/create things. Like when I decided to design and build my own furniture from scratch. I'm always dreaming up a new little project or experiment.
Im kinda nerdy. Easy going. Quiet at first, but once I get to know someone I really open up. I've probably read a Wikipedia article on every question that ever crossed my mind, so there are plenty of things we could talk to about if you get past the boring small talk. That and internal combustion engine theory, in case you are ever interested.
Laughing helps me balance out all this serious analyzing stuff.
A life goal of mine is to take a voice acting class. Maybe an improv class would be fun too.
I get excited when I see a sign for a garage sale. This past summer I hit a bunch of them and found some really cool antiques that I kept, and a lot of other stuff I sold for a profit. It takes some skill. But it was amazing how much fun I had with that :)
What I like:
Intelligence and a healthy level of ambition. You're not ok with doing the same old thing forever. A college degree is a firm requirement.
A woman who works hard and plays hard. Hangs out with me some, then does her own thing for awhile, so I can have my regular dose of alone time.
Easy going, but still ambitious, low maintenance, real.
Watching a favorite TV show together every week is seriously a great way to spend time together. I want that.
I am strongly attracted to dark hair/eyes. Most of my relationships have been with Asian or Jewish women. My celebrity crush might be Mila Kunis. But is it time for a change? I'm open to whatever unfolds.
Also I keep myself in pretty good shape through careful diet and weight training, so I expect you to be in shape too.
Yes smell gets its own category. Because that's how important it is. I never forget the way a girl smells, (good or bad). A simple thing that's simple to overlook. Its more important than your makeup, your hair, your shoes, etc. You already use shampoo, and probably lotion. Just pick one of those products based on smell. I don't want to dream about your friend's body lotion, I want to dream about yours. Good examples: cucumber melon, sweet pea, pink. Bad examples: old "classic" perfumes remind me of old ladies.
What I don't like:
I don't want to hear anything about sports or religion, and a minimum about politics. I hate arguing, especially about who's wrong or right, or about things that we have no control over. I can't stand most political science majors or lawyers. Or loud people who broadcast their opinions when nobody asked them.
Low quality, high priced women. If you are a dependent female who free loads, I will notice it immediately. Fake looking makeup/tanning/hair, etc or fake personality. None of that. Just be as honest and natural as you can be.
