My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Although I somehow wound up getting a degree in Mathematics, deep down I'm an Arts man: spending my free time reading books of all sorts, tinkering with creative writing, listening to a wide array of music, watching so-called art films and 'quality' television (as well as media of a more mass appeal--I may play the aesthete, but that is but one of many masks I wear). I exercise often, although sports and competition aren't exactly my wheelhouse (I'll watch the people watching the game, in other words). I'm always looking for engaging conversation, a chance to discuss books, movies, etc., brief excursions into random trivia, and new friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working at the public library, and greatly enjoying my time there. Alas, library salaries being what they are, this means that I'm not going to be a big spender anytime soon. Though I do love my job, having a to-date unused B.S. degree presents me with the dilemma of one day having to choose between a job I love and a degree-based one with a much higher salary. Let's be honest, I'm probably going to have to go with the money. And by have to, I mean "have to"! But if that's an eventuality, it's hopefully one that comes some years down the road, when there are bills to pay involving potential dependents, say. Plus, at this time, my library position gives me the leeway to tinker with side projects I really care about, if only (this far) in an amateur capacity: creative writing, leaning languages, expanding my horizons through various self-imposed academic and cultural explorations, etc. Okay, that last sentence may have been a bit much, but, yeah: learning and the arts are just about my favorite things, and I tend to approach them rather voraciously.

In my free time I'm reading as much as I can, listening to a broad spectrum of music, and watching a wide range of movies and television programs, as per usual. Whenever I find the time and inclination to do so, I try to teach myself foreign languages in the most unorganized and easily distracted fashion, so I now have a woefully inadequate grasp on rudimentary Russian, Spanish, Latin, French, German, Italian, and Japanese (and 'woefully inadequate' is probably giving me too much credit).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not really good at self-promotion, so I suspect no matter what I write here will come off sounding either excessively self-deprecating or unbearably arrogant. I suppose one could say that I am good with language, intelligent, have an excellent memory (for the most part anyway) and capacity for learning, and have a very eclectic taste with regard to the arts and entertainment (although I'm rather uncomfortable and ambivalent about admitting such things).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Having never been another person noticing myself for the first time, I can only conjecture that I probably seem intelligent and well-educated. Anything beyond that, I'm probably totally wrong about (I've always been particularly bad at accurately assessing how I appear to others). In text based interactions, they may notice I use asides (parenthetical and otherwise) to an excessive (and I suspect often irritating) degree; I would like to blame it on reading Notes from Underground at a highly impressionable age, but that's undoubtedly just a convenient half-truth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: A little of almost everything, with a significant focus on Classical music (particularly the mid- to late Romantic period) and Opera (although I find a decent percentage of operas as tedious to sit through as I imagine most people would); Classic rock (late 60s through the 70s); film, television, and (perhaps oddly) video game soundtracks; and musicals. And that's just the stuff I listen to the most; like I say, I find something to like in pretty much all musical genres from just about any time period.

Books: I read quite a great deal, with a focus on classic and contemporary literary fiction and select authors from a wide range of genres (a handful of favorites include Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, Haruki Murakami, Terry Pratchett).

Movies: My favorite movies tend to be so-called art films, but I am by no means excessively highbrow and enjoy a wide range of genres (favorite directors include the Coens, Kieslowski, Kurosawa, Truffaut, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Werner Herzog). There are numerous guilty pleasures I would be reluctant to admit to liking up front (of the "I like it, but, yeah, it's a pretty terrible movie" variety), but I'm not ashamed to admit I've never lost my love for Disney/Pixar films (which are, of course, generally pretty amazing).

Television: Although I can be pretty selective about the shows I watch, I probably need to watch less television in general; some of my favorite shows: Community, Parks and Recreation, Louie, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Party Down, Peep Show, Extras, Game of Thrones, the oeuvre of Joss Whedon. I also am a big fan of quite a broad range of animated programs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I haven't the slightest idea how to initiate a conversation in a text-based medium. I'm generally bad at text-based communication that doesn't mirror the back-and-forth of real-time conversation in general.

Also--and this probably important--I'm not nearly as pretentious as I may initially seem. Like I said, text-based first impressions are something of a weak point.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think I may an interesting person in getting to know. I'm certainly open to the possibility of dating in the future, but I am a bit wary of rushing into such things (and yes, I am aware that the first stages of dating are usually very casual, but nevertheless I would rather get to know someone in a friendly capacity first, and only THEN consider the possibility of dating in a casual fashion). Besides, one can never have too many friends (well, actually I suppose one can, but I am nowhere near that upper boundary with regard to quantity of friends).
