Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've spent most of my life gaining knowledge. While I have a very
logical, rational side to me, the thing that drives me the most is
my writing. I write for myself, but wouldn't mind being published
I have a great sense of humor, but it's not immediately noticeable.
My humor stems from sardonic or ironic places, and it is very dry.
I love to laugh and be goofy with someone who likes laughing and
While I believe that physical aspects of relationships are very
important, I also think that body intimacy should be equal to mind
intimacy. I like discussing history, politics, science, pop
I am intelligent, driven, and artistic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I am a full-time college student working toward my
I am writing screenplays and novels as a hobby.
I've written a couple of computer games.
Taking the odd moment to get away and stare at the stars.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have been told that I am a fantastic writer. I think that while I
might be skilled, I have never been PAID for it. This is probably
due to the fact that I write for myself more than I write for
money. My writing is deeply personal to me.
I HAVE been paid for my computer programming work. I was a
professional in the information technology field for about 10 years
before I opened my own business. I treat programming like an art
form...a sculpture rather than a structure like a bridge. I program
computers like a Jazz musician plays the sax.
I am really good at debate. I don't view the objective of debate as
proving myself right. I use debate to learn from others, to get
alternate viewpoints and ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am overweight. I've been told I have expressive eyes.
I have a strong personality, but the first thing people notice
about me is that I am reserved around people I don't know. Once I
get warmed up, however, I can be pretty loose and goofy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Neuromancer by William Gibson
"Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien
I really like everything Heinlein wrote, and I love Alastair
I can switch between high fantasy to hard science fiction without
batting an eyelash. I also voraciously read nonfiction.
Star Wars, Evil Dead (all 3), Akira, Saving Private Ryan, A few
Good Men, Unforgiven, Fantastic Planet, etc. Pretty much any genre
of film is okay with me...except Chick Flicks. (Even that has an
I listen to anything from Celtic, World Music, SOME rap, rock and
roll, Industrial, electronic music. The only 2 genres of music I
can't take a lot of is gangster rap (or any rap that is
misogynistic, racist, violent, glorifies drugs, etc) and
I am a meat and potatoes man. I like good, solid American food.
Steak, salad, pizza, hamburgers, pasta, etc. I'm not really into
seafood at all, or in exotic oriental tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can never do without the means to write.
I can not do without books.
I can not do without music. I need a soundtrack for my life.
I can not do without my friends and family.
I can not do without air/food/water/shelter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about my current writing project. I'll often stare
off into nothingness. That means I'm in another place and time with
I spend a lot of time educating myself, and integrating new facts
with my old assumptions. I don't have a settled mind, nor do I
think I have all the answers. I like making best guesses, though.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Resting up, catching up on sleep and hobbies. I'll probably write a
bit. I work very hard during the week, so Fridays are a chance to
be still and contemplate.
If there is a good movie coming out, I'll probably go to see it.
I'm not really much for clubbing/dancing. I love to dance, but
don't like the crush of the dance floor.
Most of all, I recharge my batteries and get myself prepared for
the next week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am quite willing to let someone get to know me, and these kinds
of details, at a comfortable pace. Once I get to a place of trust
with someone, I'm pretty much an open book.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think you could be attracted to an overweight guy who has a
strong intellectual streak.
Although I think friendship is an important component of a
relationship, I am looking for a romance. I'm looking for someone
who is in the same life-place that I am at, looking for a person to
have a physical AND intellectual relationship with.
Who are you looking for?
