My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would say that I'm one in a billion, but that would imply that there are six others of me walking around on this planet and I find that deeply disconcerting. For simplicity's sake, let's just say that I'm unique. I think we all grow up thinking we are good people, but at some point I began to question whether I do things that good people do and I didn't like the answer. Now if I get the opportunity to be a good Samaritan, I do my best to be helpful. My life's goal is to continue to learn and improve myself as well as the world around me.

I'm not particularly flashy or spontaneous and I've been told that I have a flat affect. I don't care for gender roles, I don't get involved in drama, and I believe in the solidarity of the human race (though I also believe it to be a thing of the future because there are many people--or insert better, preferably more profane descriptor--out there today that will never contribute).

On this site, I am looking forward to finding someone with whom I can express my perpetual love through mutual respect and relentless torment. Ultimately I'm trying to find someone with whom I'll have no secrets. I don't know if such a thing is possible, but I'd like to try.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a biotech firm in the R&D department. I'm pretty low on the totem pole, but it's my first time in the industry and I'm pretty excited. I'm also in a masters program for Biotechnology & Bioinformatics, so my time is at a premium, alas.

I spent a brief stint as a high school teacher, and after deciding that it wasn't for me, I spent a less brief stint as a substitute teacher while pursuing my masters.

Also apparently answering a million questions on OKC. Just in case you're wondering, they get really pointless after about 700.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing devil's advocate. Being introspective. Also befriending high school kids with potential Asperger's (and those without) who love Doctor Who and anime. As a teacher, I particularly liked lavishing the nerdy kids with attention and making them feel good about themselves. If you like, I've got literally dozens of high-school-age kids that would vouch for my coolness factor.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My important things are loved ones, stories, technology, nature, faraway destinations, and a really comfortable chair (my employment options seem to always involve a lot of standing).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Advances in medicine, technology, novels with uncompromising protagonists, what makes an innovative videogame, why I enjoy Game of Thrones and Walking Dead despite the fact that there is no happiness to be found for anyone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Undoubtedly drinking some wine or beer with a pizza and Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At the ripe old age of 29, I realized that I pronounced the word "comfortable" as "comf-'turble" and set to change that... to its correct pronunciation of "com-for-'tab-leh."

I enjoy beer and wine, going to breweries, happy hour, finding new restaurants with friends, hiking, travel, going to baseball and hockey games, going to the gym, and all of the things that you'll see on every profile on here. I'm social, I go outside... but ultimately my natural habitat is my home. When I'm not going out, I'm spending much of my time at home alone reading, watching shows and sports, and playing video games, and I enjoy it that way. I'm an introvert. That doesn't mean I have no social skills--it just means that I need time to myself to recharge.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you like nerdy kinds of things like sci-fi and fantasy genres, video games, science, and so on... Hell, message me even if you don't, but you're OK with me liking those things. I prefer if you message me because you like what you read and not just what you see. That said, I can't promise I'll always respond, and I apologize in advance if I don't.

I look for a certain level of maturity in women I talk to on here. I try not to leave people hanging after we've talked for a while, or after we've gone on a date. It's more cruel to do so than to just tell someone you're not interested. When I'm faced with hard decisions, I tend to ask myself: "What should I do?" or "What would a mature adult do?" Points to you if you do the same.
