My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Looking for smart cuddle friendly folk to hang around with sometimes. Also looking for people that can introduce me to a local cuddle puddle. Cuddle puddles and tutoring parties are my natural habitat.

I'm gonna do stuff in an order I think makes sense:
Here's a list of stuff that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I see it in another. If you think you have most of this stuff, then please message me about these list items right away.
- You're smart and you know it. Valedictorians and me get along like exp(i π) and -1.
- You're doing something useful for the world with your life.
- You're cool with reassessing your entire values system often.
- You make honest efforts towards your goals.
- You work to see an end to suffering of all kinds.
- You respect your own body and treat it well.
- You like thinking and talking about the world in political and philosophical realms.
- You are helping to change lives and mentalities, be it locally or globally.
- You think about hard questions, ones you know you don't have the answer to, and you search for the answer anyways.
- You like night time bike rides.
- You enjoy playing games of any and all types.

I am inquisitive, bodacious, and happy-go-lucky

I am not super into monogamy. I like being able to enjoy the company of whomever I'm with to whatever degree is suitable and mutually agreed upon. I have to put the term sapiosexual in here to describe my general interests, although I do tend to find myself more romantically interested in ladies.

Putting this here cos it's gotta go somewhere:
happily rationalist, Bayesian until we can figure out something better, feminist, humanitarian, transhumanist, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a tutor. I teach people how to think more clearly. I love watching people's faces as they dunk their head in the bucket of revelation.

The best thing about it is that revelations tend to come in waves.

I also work on learning new things, whether I can tutor them or not. Lemme know if there's anything out there you wanna help me learn.

03/2014 -- Since the start of the year I've been bungee jumping, contra dancing, swimming in hot springs, riding across desert sands in a vehicle without seat belts, at pub trivia night, at the goth club bunker (before it closed), been on the crew for a pyrotechnics crew, been at a blanket fort building competition, played too many board games to count, played some pick up ultimate frisbee, hosted some couch surfing germans, went to a party dressed up as a ring tailed lemur, been naked in a hot tub with people whose names I did not know before.. well the list keeps on going.

Point is, help me make every day an adventure, with many things to learn.

Also I don't drink or do drugs. It's fine if you do, but it's extra points if you don't.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating a wholesome vegan dinner for 2 - 12.

I like to help clarify things in life. I'm rational and reasonable when anyone needs assistance with life's problems, but in the meantime I also enjoy a good bit of nonsense.

I sometimes need things in life clarified for me too. I strongly seek people who can help me become more than I currently am.

I do outdoor things occasionally, and am reasonable at skiing, skating, biking, fixing bikes, hiking, kayaking, and canoeing, among others. I tend to catch on quick.

I'm really good at having a reliably good temperament. When shit starts breaking all around me, I usually do not break down. I'm good at figuring out a reasonable course of action to take and working towards ameliorating the situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get a lot of confused looks at first. I don't like rules I find unimportant. I do like openness, communication, and trust.

I contrive words to do funny things, in and out of context. Combine with an off-beat sense of humor and a penchant for the ridiculous makes me catch a lot of eyes. Sometimes as they roll. pun friendly

I am a touch slut and a cuddle bear. I like hugs and head rubs and the like. It's really exciting to be cuddly with new people. It's really comforting to be cuddly with friends.

Catcher in the Rye

I'm really picky about movies, but I loved Miyazaki's The Wind Rises
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Understanding intent versus literalness
- Minds that are really seeking greatness
- Striving to reach the next level of who I can be
- A smile that says, 'I see what you did there'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A sample of things I think about might be:
gender issues, societal roles, veganism, physics, philosophy, math, language, function of governance and government, finding meaning without creating artificial meaning, food, how to bias my wording on OkCupid such that I automatically deal with the Dunning Kruger Effect.

I'm interested in all manner of life's puzzling questions, and can sometimes find answers.

What is the best way to convince people to change conterfactual beliefs for rational ones?

I intermittently inject ideas at intriguing intervals.
Interestingly, it's entwined with my innovative introspection. My interlocutors investigate my illations internally, and I indulge myself in their input.

Below isn't something i think on often, but it's interesting and also the kind of thing I'd like people to show me if they come across. Here are the sounds of the Southern Ocean. I think they're glorious.
On a typical Friday night I am

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like thinking. You think you know how I might improve myself. You want to become a better rationalist, and might be able to teach me how to do so too.

You fulfill some part of my ideal partner list at the top.
You wanna take me to a secret hideout, be it on a picnic under a bridge or the top of the tallest building in the city.

You're searching for someone to have a cool or cuddly time with. Either or both would work. I'm really not pushy and will follow your lead.
