My self-summary
Welcome! I am one of those guys you have never met before (though I hope you do, and find you wish you sooner had).

I can be laid back, but usually only do it well with friends or better. I can be serious or intense (including about being laid back). I like the beauty of a good solution or approach, almost as much as purity in a person's approach to life, a well-executed piece of art or music, or a lovely figure or face.

I am studying math and economics, which is very empirical and often well-defined, but am intrigued by the intersection of value-systems, psychology, philosophy, and religions, which can be anything but.

I try to be sincere and say what I mean: finding flattery a waste of time yet have nothing against saying a word to acknowledge the good I see.

Like many people, I'm a work-in-progress. I'm not perfect, I don't know everything (and you can quote me on that).
I am, in some ways, an apparent contradiction, yet one quite at peace with myself, looking for a partner to join me in my war against that general class of indeterminate objects called obstacles, that they may be better overcome... Most of all, to overcome that great burden that is the solitude, the longing for the one who might let themselves be considered, in reciprocity, that special someone.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student with a paralegal degree (associate's) who is studying to eventually become an economist (which means taking crazy amounts of graduate-level math classes while completing my bachelor's). I'm looking to change the world, but all good things take time.
I’m really good at
Listening;
helping people get to know themselves;
understanding difficult subjects (science, math, law, economics, religion, etc.);
figuring out the fundamentals, about how things work;
being brutally honest, and almost as good at taking brutally honest criticism. (I know I'm just asking for someone to tell me that I write too much about myself - I already know!)

I like talking about just about anything, even about subjects that I know little on - even if I don't have much to say, it's sure to be a learning experience! I'm also good with computers - I used to be a hobbyist software developer, and I'm currently trying to find time to code an app that might have the potential to be bigger than Groupon ever was.

A lot more, but remembering those things isn't one of them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be very polite and respectful... and they often wonder (if they're not convinced) that I think WAY too much!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything I can learn from, particularly things that will help my education, career, personal development, or understanding of 'how the world works.' Most recent book finished was Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. Before that was Geisha: A Life by Mineko Iwasaki, though I started and have yet to finish reading The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. Really enjoyed Siddhartha, also.

Movies/Shows: I like many movies, as long as they aren't too shallow or negative. I don't watch much TV or movies lately, unfortunately, though my favorite dramas are probably romance, drama, comedy, and action (though it's hard to find an action movie with depth!)

Music: I enjoy music from all genres, though I try to avoid negative music, and hip-hop usually doesn't do anything for me. Donna Lewis, The Pillows, Chicago, and Queen come to mind, but that is not nearly an exhaustive or even properly representative list.

Food: While I don't like every food, I'm willing to acquire the taste for virtually anything - and I do enjoy quite a wide variety. I'm not terribly particular, other than that... except avoiding gluten in every way I can manage.
The six things I could never do without
1. The guidance and support of the Spirit.
2. Friends and social interaction (small groups or one-on-one most often preferred).
3. Time to think.
4. My notebook PC.
5. Some smart handheld device (iPod, smartphone, etc.), ideally Internet connected - essential for reminders, note-taking, and finding dubious answers to questions as to which I am clueless.
6. Dreams, goals, visions. You're not living if you aren't moving towards one of them. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why OkCupid replaced their iPhone app that worked well with an app where scrolling and the selection of some options is unreliable... really? On a more serious note...

How to make the world a better place, and how to improve the lives of myself and those close to me.

I'm working on a couple of books, one on religion, another on a model of relationships. Why am I here, if I claim to have relationships figured out? First off, the model is currently incomplete. More importantly, I know the general type of person whom I mean to find, but I don't spend nearly enough time trying to find dates, and this helps expedite a lot of the Q&A that might otherwise be necessary - or awkward - with people you haven't met before.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying, maybe trying to change the world (or at least my little piece of it).
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
Message me if you want to learn about my views, even if you're not interested in me.
Message me if you want to talk with someone, or if you just want someone to listen for a little while.
Message me if you're interested in someone who seeks to change the world but who would also really enjoy the opportunity to change the life of a special someone, and wouldn't mind their life being changed, in kind. (I'm not necessarily looking to change *you*, though change happens, over time at least, to those parties in any relationship.)
Message me if you even thought of messaging me - take a chance, I don't bite. :)
