Hi, my name is Mark. I love my name for his brevity and force and history. I have an inordinate affection for science, logic and language, and therefore puns. Sorry in advance for that. I am a super-massive nerd. I've played paper and pencil roleplaying games since middle school, video games longer than that, and hoarding fantasy and science fiction novels and comics as long as I can remember.
I am an arguer but not a worrier. I love the thrust and parry of debate for its own sake, of reason married to charisma brought to bear on inconsequential and fun things, the geekier the better. I love oral storytelling but strive against my insecurities to make creative things that are more permanent. I have a bad habit of approaching stuff in life experimentally. I have a list of places to travel to and eat. It is a list of restaurants, really.
I love to be around people but I am truly introverted. So social stuff is tiring, but it's a a good, satisfied tired. It always feels worth it, especially since I balance myself out by decompressing with books, music and long, contemplative walks.
I am mostly Irish and Polish, chased with a slurry of other lovely ethnicities. My ancestors were so randy that I wouldn't pass the "one-drop" rule.
I am accepting, honest, passionate for the people in my life, dedicated and more silly than I deserve. I am kind and adventurous and a born nerd.
I am bookish, subversive, and mighty.
I am seeing someone superbly lovely, so I am not looking for anything here beyond a conversation partner.
