I like to do my own thing. I work as an independent consultant for large internet firms solving hard technical problems for them in data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. In my spare time I do some research in theoretical physics and also have my own large , open source project on github. I am about as nerdy as humanly possible.
To balance this out, I try to something athletic every day. I am currently doing Olympic Weightlifting and some Gymnastics. I think it is important to do things that are challenging and offer growth even if you are not naturally good at them. I competed in my first olympic weightlifting competition this year and I am hoping to go to national masters in april.
We should be physically compatible and like minded. While I am not an elite crossfitter, I do continue weight training and basic gymnastics about maybe 15 hours / week and participate in weightlifting competitions when I can.
I don't expect anyone to do this crazy stuf with me if they don't want to, but I need someone who understands why I am never at home after work on the weekdays, why I don't drink alcohol or hang out in bars, and is OK not going out of town every weekend on trips. I get the impression this will rule out 95% of the matches on here but I still try.
Generally I like the outdoors and going to coffeeshops, jazz clubs, and anything athletic. I like dogs and kids. My personal life is not complicated. I avoid politics and religion. I just try to work hard and enjoy life. I like to eat healthy and stay fit.
I think I could do well with someone kinda nerdy, with an interest in athletics and being healthy, who drinks only rarely or not at all, and is supportive, genuine, and very practical . If you are looking for someone much younger than you or you have kids , we are not a good match. I am looking for a monogamous, long term, dating relationship.
