Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a guy in the Boston area looking for new people who'd want
a +1 to hang out or go on an occasional hike. I work in a library,
where I am paid to browse reddit, analyze data with occasional
scripting, and be a generally charming/helpful individual. I
majored in mathematics, so forgive me for occasionally derailing
our conversations to discuss tangential things like the dynamics of
highway traffic, or implications of alternative universe topologies
(and if you can talk math back to me I'll swoon). I have a
spiritual relationship with rain above anything else. I sometimes
bake my friends pastries for non-special occasions. I like to think
I'm very open minded, liberal, adventurous, laid back, optimistic,
and I love to seek out new experiences. I'm a bit flirtatious and
like to layer different meanings into what I say. I love being
around people who can entertain a good debate or just as equally
keep a conversation light and relaxed.
I'm currently seeing a guy that I actually met here but I'm still
open to meeting people and doing fun things. I really am interested
in meeting new people of all kinds, so please don't be deterred.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mixing cocktails. Maybe not professionally, but I can hold my own.
Give me a stocked bar and I think can make you happy. I especially
like inventive cocktail challenges. I've made drinks inspired by
famous people from history (I particularly liked the Che and the
Gandhi), and drinks modeled off pokemon (give me any of the 151 and
I'll give you a recipe).
Folding Origami. Or more appropriately "assembling" origami. I tend
to gravitate toward modular models, but I can still fold you a frog
or a pelican if you so desire.
I like to teach, and I've been told I'm somewhat decent at it
(okay, I've actually been told I should become a professor, but I'm
trying to be modest here).
The first things people usually notice about me

People tell me I have a "unique" walk. I've yet to figure out what
that means, but I'm supposedly identifiable by my gait from 100

I tend to like music that doesn't need words, like classical and
electronic music. Fun fact: I associate musical sounds and beats
with colors and textures. That said, my staple is usually
mechanical, light blue, and translucent, but I won't mind a good
dark-hued, lustrous, or even dusty beat. You should message me if
you're more curious, and I'll try to come up with a more in depth
ANYTHING that isn't bland. If it's so spicy that I cry, I love it
(it's a wee bit of masochistic I suppose). I try not to be picky,
except I am not a big fan of seafood (but I'm trying to change
that!) UPDATE: Wow, sushi, where have you been all my life!?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Rainy days and thunderstorms
2. A well stocked kitchen/spice cabinet
3. Good conversations and interesting people
4. A job that makes me happy
5. My aesthetic sense.
6. Crisp autumn foliage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

When I'm at home by myself, I usually don't wear clothes. According
to my friends, this is "not normal" behavior. That's too bad.
