I'm a Romantic. I like caring for people, making grand gestures, planning dates, cuddling together while watching a movie, giving flowers/chocolate, the whole nine yards.
I'm a Nerd. I've got hobbies that I'm passionate about, I do research into what brings me joy, I hold onto the things I love for a long time, and I share my joy with others.
I'm a Maker. I take my imagination, and I bring it into the world. That may be food, flowers, costumes, props, or occasionally a house. Carpentry is in my blood.
I'm a Storyteller. I craft tales to amuse, uplift, and entertain my friends. I perform musicals, Shakespeare, portray characters for work, do improv comedy, and weave collaborative stories with my friends.
I'm a Gentleman. I open doors, pull out chairs, say please and thank you, I know that no means No and I'll always respect it, and when I make an oath I fulfill it.
I'm Observant. I have very strong senses, able to smell perfume while it's still in the bottle, and a memory to remember what I listen to you saying. Listening is important.
“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson
Those are wise words I live by. I'm a man who tries to find the best way for everyone to get what they want, and to bring happiness to those I care about. Now, I'm not a skilled enough writer to put all of me into so few words, but hopefully this is enough of a peek to give you insight into who I am.
I teach people about science, so that a 9 year old understands retroviruses and the basics of how the brain is segmented.
I'm a jack of all trades, master of some. A few things I can't do: sweep, remember number sequences, figure out when a woman is flirting with me, calm my mind, forget things, spend an extended time in an art gallery, or watch an entire game of any sport.
In the vein of physical things, I have some red hair in my beard, green eyes, and I'm left handed. I also produce lots of body heat, ideal for snuggling up to on a cold day.
I'm one of those people that everyone thinks that they know from somewhere. I'm fairly charismatic in person though it doesn't come out as well in typing, and I've a good voice, which are often the first things noted.
Again, SciFi and Fantasy are fun. Comedies, even the occasional rom-com are good. Action, adventure, and mysteries are nice. As for horror, between the lack of plot and poor record with science realism, they bore me. And yes ladies, not only will I watch Disney movies with you, I can sing along. Serenity, Princess Bride, Remember the Titans, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Frozen, just to name a few. Avengers was great fun.
Bones, Castle, White Collar, Sherlock, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, and SHIELD are some shows currently in my queue. The Big Bang Theory could have been about me and my friends in high school. I also enjoy some older stuff, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Dick Van Dick Show, Fraiser, Mork and Mindy, and Firefly. Also, a big fan of Mythbusters, no surprise.
As for music, I'm pretty much open to anything. In general country and rap are not my forte, and opera gives me migraines. "Soft" rock, acapella, Irish rock, musicals I've been in/seen, and Disney songs are all great.
I love cheese and chocolate, not garlic, mushrooms, berries, or seafood. Turns out I'm allergic to that last one. I like some heat in my Mexican food. Italian and Japanese/Chinese are great, and when in doubt, I'll always get a cheeseburger.

4) A smattering of elements to draw from (C, O, H, N specifically)
5) New stimuli
6) Something to work on
All at once.
So if you ask me what I'm thinking about, I'll pick from the list of things actually on my mind and tell you about the thing you most likely want to have a conversation about.
Did most of those sound like you? Then you should message me. Here are some ice-breakers, to help get the conversation going:
Who is your favorite super-hero?
What is your favorite game to play?
If you could have any superpower, what would you pick?
What is your favorite scientific principle?
What is a favorite childhood memory that you hold onto?
