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 very emotional and romantic beneath the surface. I want the full spectrum of physical and emotional intimacy. I also consider myself very rational and intellectual, and yet embrace my inner child. I am compassionate and empathetic in general, and have an extremely hard time understanding people that don't care about others. Being actively selfish, catty, judgmental of others, arrogantly superior, and especially being proud or unapologetic of these qualities is a massive deal-breaking turn-off. I'm not saying I think everyone is full of flowers and sunshine, but I have heard people say some vicious things for no reason other than to say them, and to me it is NOT all in good fun.
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
