My self-summary
Hi there, my name is Dylan, I am an Italian second year graduate student. Atheist, open minded, with socialist political views and an irrational attachment to foolish ideals. I like to discuss and argue a bit more than advisable: sometimes I just speak out what I have in mind and this might lead to disasters... but I do enjoy my intellectual freedom!
I am a bit more hesitant when it comes to take action: I do like adventures but not the ones that may lead to broken bones and composite fractures.
I like simple and healthy food, and every now and then I try to cook some dish. The result is usually edible.
I dislike the idea of cultural roles, in this sense I agree with feminists. Instinct pushes me into thinking in terms of stereotypes, but I always do that with high self-irony.
What I’m doing with my life
PhD in Computational Neuroscience.
I struggle with my research, yearn for publications on scientific Journals, travel around, and try to figure out what to do with the rest of my life (always open to advice).
I’m really good at
... learning, I guess, since I am student over here. Secondly I try and do my best in listening and accepting others for what they are... with deep sympathy for those who, despite intelligence and inner richness, just cannot fit in this mad society. I love to understand concepts and reasoning, I am a bit worse in accepting feelings and hunches.

I have a good level of resilience, once I commit to something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess I appear friendly and open, but at the same time somehow introverted and a bit awkward. I am not sure on how geeky I look: probably not as much as I picture in my mind. But I can work on that. ;-)

I hope that, being Italian, people notice that I am a bit more passionate and straightforward regarding many issues... try and ask me about politics :-P

However I don’t look as Italian as I should: for example, you will hardly see me drinking coffee or watching a football match.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here is a very a random list of authors I liked that come into my mind: Fjdor Dostojevski, Robert Musil, Umberto Eco, Daniel Pennac, James Ellroy (LA Confidential), Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Isaac Asimov, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Neil Gaiman (American Gods, Stardust), J R R Tolkien, Ursula Le Guin, John Irving, Cormac McCarthy (the Road), Haruki Murakami etc

Movies: I enjoy horrors, sci-fi and thrillers full of action and special effects. I also like movies with gloomy atmospheres and the ones related to the dark side of human mind. For example Tim Burton’s films, or movies such as Black Swan, Batman the Dark Knight, V for Vendetta and The Watchmen (but please read the comic, first!)

TV Shows: I like the unconventional ones, with a full storyline rather than episodes. I fondly remember Six Feet Under and The Shield . Lately I watched a bit of Breaking Bad. In general I like inner conflicts and characters struggling with their identities.

Music: a bit of this and that. In the past I really liked melodic Gothic, bands with chilling female vocalists like Nightwish, Tristania, Epica, etc. Now I tend to listen to folk, rock, indie. I don’t really have favourite bands or singers.
The six things I could never do without
Critical sense
Food and (comfortable) housing
State-of-the-art Science
People to talk freely and open-heartedly to
Books
My Camera
( I own a Canon 60D: photography is yet another hobby I’d like to cultivate, any aspiring model out there? )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human mind. Not only for my PhD subject, but mostly because I happen to have a mind, and so most of human and non-human animals around me. ( I love how “non-human animals” sounds, it has quite deep implications in it). I like to read about psychology research and understand how does it translate in my everyday life, what it implies and what I should be aware of.
On a typical Friday night I am
... I am not clubbing. I don’t like that. I would prefer an open air concert, a folk festival, or a nice dinner and a decent movie to watch... probably a walk unders the stars with the right person. I like to jump into events, but I am not so good at self-motivating: without the right pull I end up being at home. I recently enrolled on interesting courses on coursera, for example, and I am considering brushing up my long gone passion for videogaming.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might trigger the “nice boy” alarm.

I have collected some books about the “pickup art” and read a couple of them, but I never managed to apply any of the things I have read there. It’s totally not me. If you like to be “picked up”, I’m not the right man. :-P
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–36
  • Near me
  • For short-term dating
You should message me if
I am not interested in a committed, long lasting relationship, at the moment (alas!) : I perceive my life here in Cambridge as transitory. Who knows where my ambitions will carry me, in a couple of years?

I would still enjoy some company, though: maybe someone I could meet and share a bottle of wine with, talking about my life/her life... and anything else might come to mind. Of course, a physical component would be largely appreciated, as well. Just keep in mind that some of my best friends are female: I like to communicate, not to hook up.

I am not superficial and hardly polygamous, however, as I am not sure what I am looking for, I might be willing to experiment some "alternatives" . I like when the terms are clearly and respectfully fixated in advance.

To sum up, if you have read this far you may as well drop a line. I will surely answer and probably meet you for a drink.
