My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, my name is David, and it's been 36 hours since I've bored anyone to death talking about the T.

...wait, this isn't the support group?

I'm a nerdy and energetic person, currently in the summer between undergrad in rocket science and grad in Fixing the T, Seriously. Gravity and I have a tempestuous relationship; I hike up mountains and ski down them and jump off bridges. (If your profile picture is you atop a mountain, I'm definitely going to message you.)

I'm a feminist, and I aim to be an ally.

The standard disclaimer: I'm ethically nonmonogamous, and maybebutnotquitesureyet also poly. I currently have a romantic partner and I'm super into her. I don't do possession or expectations; I do honesty and respect and consent and flirting while climbing trees.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Settling into the grad school life. Writing at length about trains, and occasionally people - my current interest is the British poet Sarah Williams.

Trying to surround myself with kind, loving people who do great things, and a hauty, antisocial cat whose highest ambition is to nap in sunbeams. Hopefully adopting said cat in early September.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I haven't taken a cab nor used an umbrella on this continent since 2011.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Neuromancer and Johnny Mnemonic; probably everything that Richard Feynman and Arthur C. Clarke wrote; The Longest Day; the Black Widowers short stories; Elegance of the Hedgehog, Cloud Atlas, The Time Traveler's Wife, Catch-22, Slaughterhouse-Five. V for Vendetta. bell hooks. Mathematical philosophy. I have a love-hate relationship with The Great Gatsby.

I just finished The Broom Of The System and Silent Spring; currently working through Anna Karenina, A Widow For One Year, and a poorly translated history of the Sacred Valley of the Incas

The conversations that introduced me to my two most recent meaningful partners started with The World According To Garp and Snow Crash.

Somehow I got out of the habit of watching television, save an occasional episode of Daria. You and your netflix subscription are welcome to attempt to convert me to the ways of your religion...errr, favorite show.

I'm still a fucking Firefly fanboy.

I've recently gotten addicted to NPR Tiny Desk Concerts. Fifteen minute servings of random artists in a tiny space with full creative reign.

If TSO, Black Sabbath, Arcade Fire, Wuthering Heights, the Dropkick Murphys, Live, or Emilie Autumn did or would play it, I probably like it. I saw the Protomen live and it was among the most insane experiences of my life.

Namedropping: The Who, Van Canto, Uriah Heep, Toto, Survivor, Styx, Scorpions, Queen, Nighwish, Molly Hatchet, King Crimson, Hevisaurus, Flogging Molly, Faster Pussycat, Enter The Haggis, Dire Straits, David Bowie, Boston, Bloc Party, Bad Company, Anais Mitchell, and Alice Cooper.

I'm pretty fond of classical, particularly Rachmaninoff and Holst.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Completos italianos, the most delicious and disgusting drunk food the western hemisphere has invented.

Wikipedia, where most of my spare time seems to disappear to.

My slightly-out-of-focus but fortunately unbreakable point-and-shoot.

A big college-rule notebook to think on.

Google Maps.

Thick blankets and thin pillows.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Religion, and why some people have it and some don't. Trying to understand why bodily autonomy is not a universal concept. Feminism. Rape culture. How to make things better. Sentence fragments as an occasionally preferable stylistic choice. How to photograph ordinary things in interesting ways.

Also, trains, far more than I'd like to admit.

tl;dr: intersectional feminism; butts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking nice bourbon and/or truly terrible white wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no real middle ground between incomprehensibly busy and instant ennui. The best I can do is to channel that into doing cool stuff.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're okay with meeting up (however you feel safe doing so) after not too long. Messages are nice, but lately I've been craving actually seeing people. Let's have a coffee or a beer, or just walk around some part of Boston we've never seen before.

Your version of a good time involves rocky coastlines, whiskey sours, and/or cat facts. You want to go do something completely nutty with a stranger on a whim. You want to go to the beach or climb trees and kiss.

You're looking for excitement without expectations but with honesty.
