I have a great love of learning and hearing about almost anything you want to tell me about. In return I want to be able to share with you the things that are important to me. Those things include mathematics, many of the hard sciences, politics (I consider myself a reality-based libertarian), philosophy, computers, the inner workings of things like the human mind, humor, music, and other complex systems. Much of the music I listen to I consider heart-achingly beautiful, and I would dearly love to share that with someone. (the Trance genre, Sarah McLachlan, Ayria, Delerium, Jewel, Loreena McKinnett). Favorite environments are a desert/glacier at night, heavy fog in the very early morning or pre-dawn where you can just see the treetops, and rain and thunder anytime (as long as I'm inside :) )
I also have what they call "geeky" interests, and I am more than a casual fan, but I neither go to conventions nor dress-up. A few specifics off the top of my head include Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Stargate, Lord of the Rings (and the Silmarillion), Firefly, the Hitchhikers 5-book trilogy ;), Discworld, and the Midkemia books. I also like some classic sf, mostly Issac Asimov, but am not nearly as well-read as I should be. My opinions on several geeky debates are quite outspoken. If you want details, I'll talk your ear off. :) I'm also a redditor, and went to the Rally to Restore Fear and/or Sanity.
I am looking for someone to share all this with. Someone I'm not afraid to open up to, to tell whatever comes into my head. I don't know if this will make sense, but I want a relationship in which we both put each other first.
I am quiet, intelligent, and (com)passionate
