Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! I am a friendly cage-fighting physicist, painter, and computer
nerd. I absorb things, get immersed in hobbies, and love to learn
new skills and fields. Sometimes I get too excited about the things
I learn, and try to teach them to other people. Hopefully they are
I love discussions and avoid arguments. I love science, nature,
long tempers, and clever people. I can find a reason to laugh at
just about anything, and I love surrounding myself with smart,
witty, quirky, compassionate people.
I like thinking about science, philosophy, art, gender dynamics,
games, and stories, and love even more the chance to talk to
someone about it.
I'm pretty serious about the Oxford comma.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning things, picking up new hobbies, and finding out what I
want to do with the rest of my life. I've just moved to West
Asheville (hence the new beard), and I'd like to meet some new
people, too. Then again, by the time you read this, I might have
been living here for a year...
I think I'd like to be a teacher or professor eventually, but not
before I'm done filling my passport with stamps from a bunch of
funny-sounding countries. I would also like to do something
terribly irresponsible before then, too, like skydiving into a
volcano, or taming a grizzly bear.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love painting and drawing - brains are amazing things, and words
can only express half the cool ideas that they come up with.
I've also been studying Mixed Martial Arts very regularly for the
last few years - you know, just in case the Zombie Apocalypse
The list continues with a bunch of nerdy stuff like physics and
math (like it or not, scientist is the closest you're ever going to
get to being a wizard), coding (not quite as magical, but hey, I'll
settle for a robot army), and Mario Kart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got a lot of hair, and it is REALLY blonde. A lifetime of
nicknames like "Fabio" or "Legolas" have ensued. You know all those
trashy romance novels, with the dashing flaxen-maned swashbuckler
embracing some buxom lady in front of a sunset? Little known fact:
that is me (it is not).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
With regards to music, I have a weakness for anything that mixes
classical symphony styles with modern themes. Essentially, an
electric violin is the key to my heart. Escala is fantastic, and
the Piano Guys are on the list. I absolutely love Two Steps from
Hell and E.S. Posthumus.
As for food, I'll eat just about anything. I'm sort of a
half-vegetarian: I rarely eat meat, but I won't turn it away if
it's already cooked and offered. I don't watch a lot of TV, and my
taste in movies is pretty cheesy. I am immensely excited that a new
Godzilla movie is finally coming out - that's how bad my taste in
movies is. But man. I am pumped.
Update: Godzilla was awesome.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Let me refrain from the obvious food/water/atmosphere jokes and go
with the following:
-My close friends
-A place to learn! Books, School, the internet, etc.
-A bunch of pencils, even more erasers, and a big stack of paper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh goodness, my brain just spits out an endless stream of nonsense.
It's like a room full of toddlers up there.
"That guy has a neat beard. Maybe I should grow my beard out. I
heard a story about a guy who had spiders in his beard. I wonder if
spiders can grow beards. Spiders have eight legs. The eighth
episode of Happy Days is my favorite. Why doesn't the Fonz ever
grow a beard? I bet he's afraid of spiders."
Update: I did grow my beard out. There are no spiders in it. I
don't actually like Happy Days - I was just using that as an
example - but I still do wonder why the Fonz never grew a beard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Absolutely no idea. I tend to just follow what other people are
doing on Fridays, so it could be anything from camping to hanging
out at a bar to playing video games with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am actually a werewolf, and I shed constantly. I hope you don't
have allergies, and don't mind missing out on moonlit strolls. It's
pretty gruesome. Don't tell anyone, internet.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're smart, you're funny, and you're maybe a little bit
Oh, and if you have a good Zombie Apocalypse plan, 'cause I want to
get in on that.
