In the past I did neuroscience research (still interested, decided not to make it the focus of my career). I'm also interested in Bioinformatics. If I were starting it all over again, I'd probably be a researcher in mechanisms of cellular differentiation and/or aging.
I sometimes jog or go to a climbing gym, and I'd love to have someone to go hiking/camping with occasionally.
I'm not in it for the money (but don't do bad on that front), nor the power or position. I just want a comfortable life, continual exposure to neat ideas and opportunities to learn, and suitable companionship.

I'm pretty introverted. I don't make friends easily and I don't have any skill at flirting; there are generally gaps of years between my dating people.
I write a lot about everything, in various places on the internet.
My politics (what policies I want in place) are a mix of (mostly) socialist and (some) libertarian ideas. I usually vote Democrat, but I'm culturally pretty moderate (my family is all over the map politically, racially, and so on). I usually dislike activists of every flavour (but I occasionally go to marches for causes I believe in). I'm not shy about making fun of people behind their back (for pretty much anything), even people I like, but I'll generally be polite to their face. I will make fun of or joke about absolutely anything. This is a cultural thing and I'm not from part of our broader culture that's ashamed of it.
I'm also not ashamed to be here - I see it as being like LinkedIn, but for romance, and this is kind of like a resume+statement of what I'm looking for. It'd be great to meet someone "accidentally" in my everyday life, but that hasn't happened recently.
If you're into yoga, I'll judge you. Not a disqualifier, but it seems new-agey in some forms, depressingly spiritual in another, and disgusting in the case of Bikram. If you're wary of spirituality and are just in it for the exercise though, I'd be cool with that. Oh, and I expect you'll be judgeing me on all sorts of things too, that's just part of how people think and live.
Atheist-or-agnostic (secular jewish would be cool)
In reasonable shape
Open minded about politics
Intelligent (the more the better)
Ok with cats
Read books. Into learning
Not into Critical Theory/Foucault/intersectionality
I don't like the constraints of traditional gender-roles (in the bedroom or elsewhere) but am into monogamy. GGG if you're into that, but if you're completely vanilla that's fine (I care much more about companionship).
I have this fantasy of growing old with someone and sitting on a porch on a rainy day watching the storm, heading out into the wet wind to dance with them as it pours down. Maybe that could be you.
