My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an introvert who loves people and an empath who practices rationality. My highest values are kindness and wisdom. I have a very dry sense of humor. My favorite pastimes include being nice to people, reading (especially philosophy [my vocation is epistemology, especially the epistemology of disagreement], economics, and science fiction), having conversations (preferably while ambulatory), playing strategy games (e.g. bridge, Civilization, Dominion, etc etc), and chasing a ball or frisbee. Oh, and making horrible puns. Have you heard the one about the circular cervidae? No? O deer....

Currently, in addition to seeking Ms Right, I'm looking for new activity partners: tennis, biking, walking, board games, or just about anything that gets me out of the house. Too much introversion is hazardous to my health.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Professionally I'm a tutor, specializing in high school math. I love my work even when I hate it. I volunteer with http://www.girlsgroup.org/ , which is awesome. I live in a co-op with four other humans, the world's least beagle-like beagle, and the world's most cat-like cat.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Learning. Teaching. Wei Wu Wei.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully that I'm smiling. :-).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

Food: Yes please.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) Friends.

(2) The Internet, which helps me meet friends and stay in touch with friends, entertains me when none of my friends are around, and teaches me cool new things every day.

(3) Music, which knits up the raveled sleeve of care.

(4) Volleyball, my favorite exercise (and, not coincidentally, the only sport I can actually play decently).

(5) Computer games, in which I can immerse myself when I need to turn off reality for a while.

(6) Uh... there is no Thing 6?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to communicate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, most likely playing cards or board games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm autistic.

I'm extremely "high-functioning": I can "pass" (i.e. pretend to be normal) well enough to fool most of the people most of the time. I wasn't even diagnosed until I was in my 20s. But if I seem a little off sometimes, well, now you know why.
