Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello everyone! I am a shy, nerdy type when you first meet me but
can be quite loquacious once broken out of my shell. I'm
ex-military but I really didn't fit in too well there, socially.
Not the military type. It occurs to me recently that I might not be
nerdy by the standards of the bay area, but I've always fallen into
that stereotype in any social group I've been a part of.
I consider myself an egalitarian. I believe everyone deserves the
same consideration and rights regardless of sex, gender, race,
beliefs, etc. I mislike the terms feminist and men's right advocate
because they have both come to be associated with sexism in a way
that I am uncomfortable with.
I have a strong dislike of pettiness in all its forms. Emotional
intelligence and maturity go a long way with me.
I love cats, fencing, reading, and occasionally computer
ISTP, if you're into MBTI types. I'm not sure how that relates to
finding an ideal match but I definitely think it's an interesting
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Searching for my perfect career option - I have a promising career
in logistics, but I find it unbearably boring. I need more
intellectual stimulation in life, and I haven't found it in

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently my eyes. I've been told by some that I have piercing
eyes, others say sultry, and still others say intimidating. I guess
it depends on my expression?
Note that I change my appearance fairly regularly, so the
hair/facial hair in any given photo isn't likely to reflect my
current appearance in those areas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a bit of a fantasy and sci-fi nerd, but lately I've been
reading more non-fiction. I enjoy reading anything science related,
whether it involve Richard Feinman, Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, or
any of scientists of note. Also, I like readying about eastern
philosophy. My all-time favorites are Dune, and The Picture of
Dorian Gray. A song of ice and fire isn't bad either.
Movies? I don't watch them too often. I really liked The Man From
Earth, I enjoyed the LotR series back in the day, I thought A
Clockwork Orange was a pretty good adaptation of the book. Oh, and
I identify with the characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
As far as music goes, I have a wide variety of favorites. My
all-time favorite is Tom Waits, but I also listen to NIN,
Rammstein, Mumford and Sons... Hell, I'm all over the place. Recent
favorites are VNV Nation and Covenant. Can literally never go wrong
with some triphop.
Food is something I'm passionate about, but not in the way you
might expect. I don't care all that much about eating it, I just
love to cook. It's like a form of meditation to me. I enjoy
inventing new recipes and sometimes just picking some ingredients
and outright winging it. Always seems to turn out well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A well-stocked kitchen
Cats (or any mammalian friends, really)
Intense physical activity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe, and everything. I love thinking about the
concepts of physics and science in general.
I try to spend some time every day in a state of self-reflection,
taking a mental inventory of my thoughts and feelings.
I spend a lot of time thinking but I tend to be focused on tangible
things, not constantly stuck inside my head.

restaurants/attending some event or I'm at home doing snuggly-type

I have PTSD. So there's that. Fun. I don't like to talk about it,
and please don't ask me if I've killed anyone.

I'm here looking for new friends and possibly lovers if the
attraction is there. Not looking for a relationship, but open to
something casual. Be aware I'm polyamorous and in a committed
relationship with Laraferox

Oh, and I've been wanting to try playing D&D so if anyone has a
group I can join please let me know. I DM'd a lot back in high
school and never got to play. Seems to be a thing people do around
