Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a one-dimensional archetype who can easily be summed up in 160
characters or less, but just to make sure you can read, here's an
overly verbose description of myself:
Trying to not be a nihilist.
I'm usually quiet around people I don't know, but warm up quickly.
Crowds stress me out.
Dry, sometimes dark humor.
I'm pretty involved in motorsports and usually compete twice per
I like hiking/camping, but haven't been out recently enough (let's
Like most people, I pretend to not belong to a political party
because politicians in general suck (and partisanship sucks even
That said, I lean pretty far left.
One of my favorite professors gave us the best political advice
after a class - "Vote based on what you actually know," - and I
majored in a "hard" science.
What I'm looking for -
Someone to occasionally (or even frequently, but not daily) hang
out with and do/talk about nerdy things.
Nothing compulsory; I don't want to spend all my free time with
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Staying fairly busy.
Starting my career in a field related to what I studied. I guess
it's a little better than the past 7 years working for peanuts and
going to school.
Also starting to take my motorsports "career" more seriously. I
plan on competing in a few national events this year, as well as
all the local events. (You'll hate the "racecar" if you ever see
it, but it typically stays parked until race day while I commute in
a Prius like a granny.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sciencing (sometime by breaking stuff)
Reading the news when I'm supposed to be working
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably not much now. To the casual observer, I'm sure I look and
act pretty much like every other cog in the machine.
... Damn, there's that nihilism again.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I only read the internet.
I watch pretty much any documentary that shows up on NetFlix...
unless the description is lame.
I like shows that have a coherent storyline, but hate wasting time
watching them, so try to avoid getting hooked on any. I love the
educational YouTube channels like Crash Course, SciShow and Minute
I enjoy most music, but mostly listen to EDM/techno lately
(especially if I have a project at work that will allow me to "get
in the zone" with my headphones on).
Food: Mexican, Japanese (especially sushi), sandwiches, Marie
Calender's microwaveable pot pies (bachelor life). I'm not as picky
as I used to be before college.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Most of the stuff in Maslow's hierarchy
That's at least six, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want to eat for lunch/dinner
Other trivial things
And sometimes some less trivial things
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Waiting for you to send me a message on OKC to go grab a drink.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're looking for someone to BS with about nerdy things.
If you're hot for physicists.
If you're interested in motorsports (or just want to ride shotgun
at an event for the experience).
