My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. My 3 favorite aspects of PlanoLife: great places for walks when Fall returns, lots of shopping venues, & plenty of great cafes to feed my coffee addiction. I've developed quite a sushi habit as well. Also, I'm an introvert, but appreciate folks who can spot the absurdity around us, yet carve out oases with their creativity. I'm trying to appreciate more of what moments have to offer. Still, I like to keep an eye on the future, indulging in over-analyzing ... & chocolate (& digressions). On the road of life, spotting potholes doesn't detract from the journey, it just makes it smoother! As does communication, and I'm big on that. If you aren't you may very well think I'm selfish.  ...I could not possibly comment.

Generally, my INTJ personality type fits me, ...except when it doesn't, such as when my impractical idealism shows. I have a spiritual side, but I don't get caught up in specifics. I'm an idea-driven, "work smart, not hard" type that would love to be more original, but evinces a mix of Gen X & Y. I'm metaphorical, so a female Joe Friday wanting "just the facts" from me would feel like a hamster in a wheel going nowhere ...carrying a badge!

I'm quite interested in politics, and always up for a spirited exchange on current events. I place a premium on freedom, but I'm a cooperative individualist, not a rugged one. I miss how the 90s left us more space to find our own way. On a lighter note, I enjoy taking in art exhibits, visiting history museums, and trying different restaurants. I've tried lots of different types of cuisines since moving here. Another preferred pastime is playing lots of different games: board, cards, video, & even table varieties, though I'm not that good at the last one. I love gadgets, but collect pens. I'm not a sports fan, ...except volleyball with my cat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently, I finished my dissertation, so, now that I've practically wrapped up my degree, I'm looking to transition back into local government, an analyst spot, or teaching.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
● ...procrastinating beyond advisable limits!
● ...over-analyzing, and dissecting everyday minutia.
● ...making little dopio espresso machiattos.
● ...remembering, according to some, ... I forget who.
● ...keeping in touch airport-style: only minor delays.
● ...being a decent Scrabble competitor & Bridge partner.
● ...making lists, like all of us on this site!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
depends a lot on whether I'm in my element or not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books & Magazines:
The Road to Serfdom or The Fatal Conceit, both by F. A. Hayek. I prefer to read non-fiction, usually either practical/self-improvement or political economy. I keep tabs on National Review, Reason Magazine, and The Economist.

Movies:
The Star Wars & James Bond films with Pierce Brosnan or Roger Moore. More recently, I liked Inception, Looper, and the two Hunger Games movies. I want to see Divergent.

Television:
Enduring favs include Stargate (all 3 series), The Practice, Hogan's Heroes, Everybody Loves Raymond, Frasier, South Park, Numb3rs, & Nash Bridges. Currently, I watch The Blacklist, Revolution, Mike & Molly, Big Bang Theory, & Shark Tank. Season 3 of House of Cards can't start soon enough!

Music:
Assorted Hard rock like Korn, Disturbed/Device, Rammstein, In This Moment, Chevelle, Stabbing Westard (XM 48, Octane!), Alternative, including Theory of a Dead Man, Muse, & Nirvana, and pop, such as Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, P!nk, David Guetta. 90's over 80's (Yes, I said it). Sometimes, I'm in the mood for trance (XM 51/52).

Food:
I love Seafood, including sushi. Rounding out the Top 3 are French & Chinese, though I enjoy other cultural varieties, and I'm always up for trying a new one. Top 3 sweets: chocolate mousse, pastries, & lemon poppy seed muffins.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Friends & Family
2) Knowledge & Abstraction.
3) Connectedness
4) Technology* - I'm not an "off-the-grid" kind of guy.
5) Opportunities (Not a fan? They're optional!)
6) Like a Garfield sign said,
    "Give me the coffee, and nobody gets hurt!"

* Snuck a lot in here, didn't I?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about my future. Especially as I am a bit in flux, how will I parlay some practical aspirations - not my Pinky & the Brain maniacal delusions - into realizations. Also, the way time is personally experienced, and its effect on systems, interests me. Then there's what video I can stream.

I think perhaps how we would view "the T.A.R.D.I.S" is probably how cats view a small room closed to them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
For me, Friday is just another day. In fact, I'm actually more likely to go out when I need to study, using dessert, cappuccino, or some such "carrot" to spur me to get stuff done.

I enjoy exploring new places, but some favorite spots for me are  ● Shops at Legacy ● Knox-Henderson and ● McKinney Square.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suppose here is a good place for fair warning: I am not a "morning person", I am a night owl that needs the first cup to percolate some semblance of coherence.

Also, I'm not a boor, but I'm sometimes socially awkward.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you agree that honesty & trustworthiness are musts
for both of us, you're up for a new friend, and don't "size up" folks in 5 minutes. I think dating is better with few initial expectations and an openness to building rapport. Don't you?

I'm looking to meet someone sweet, creative, & intellectually curious. Give me romance over pragmatism any day. To be honest, a sense of style wouldn't hurt. Demanding, aren't I? Also, I want to share some DINKy time together...but pets / furrkids are cool!

Just in case it should ever matter, I'd like to share 3 relationship priorities: 1) Striving for balance in life dimensions, such as faith & reason, going out & staying in, space/togetherness; and 2) shared initiative & interest, so that 3) antiquated gender roles don't hinder true partnership.

P.S. My digital welcome mat glows brighter when INFJs and "small-e" ENFJs step on it. Try it out :)
