Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm unique - just like everyone else. :) I'm a semiprofessional
'cellist who is very glad not to have to be a fully professional
one. I'm usually calm and logical (I do program computers, after
all), but I do have a rather active sense of humor. I have a
wonderful life; my biggest problem is that I'm interested in more
things than I have time to do.
I got through three years of college as a philosophy major before
someone told me there were NOT hundreds of companies out there
willing to pay a six-figure salary for a corporate philosopher. I
was devastated. Fortunately, back in high school I had discovered
an aptitude for making computers do my bidding, so when I left
school due to a lack of funds I was able to build a successful
career in that field.
I am intelligent, musical, and generally cheerful.
I need to be clear that right now I am not actively seeking a
dating/romantic/sexual relationship - I have a very full dance card
already! But the part about a good chamber musician (especially a
very good pianist) as an activity partner is quite serious - I play
chamber music nearly every week, and there is a lot of
piano/strings literature I'm itching to play. And interesting new
friends are welcome. But while I am actually in a polyamorous
situation, even for a woman who isn't looking for a monogamous
relationship, I have to warn that I might not be able to give a new
partner as much attention as she wants without depriving my present
partners of some of the attention they expect and deserve - and I
am not willing to do that. If despite that you still are interested
in a more than musical relationship, go ahead and write - but at
least you know my current situation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have to keep reminding myself that it's better to be overemployed
than unemployed. When not busy earning a living, I'm playing in
both orchestras and chamber groups.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It really depends on the person and the situation. For some reason
I tend to fool people - a number of people admitted they thought
I'd be very conservative and serious when they first meet me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like science fiction and fantasy; my all-time favorite in the
genre is Tolkien.

and Juliet, Ghostbusters (only the first one!), Airplane (ditto),
Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away (first
saw it in Paris with French subtitles), Blade Runner, Romancing the
I like most food. Oriental cuisines are a favorite - as far as
ingredients go, I especially like fish, duck, lamb, and salad.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My coffee maker.
My Swiss Army Knife (no, they don't all start with C) - forget the
damn American Express card, this is what you don't leave home
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How OK Cupid computes its match percentages, and why Staff_Robot
tries to fix me up with 20-something bisexual women who are only
looking for women under 30, as well as people who show up with
"Y'all Got Issues.".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a nice quiet dinner, and relaxing after a hectic week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmn. First I'd have to think of something I'm _not_ willing to
