I'm a guy that likes to be physically active and intellectually engaged. I find intelligence, wit, and motivation to be essential criteria in people I really get to know. Teach me something, challenge me, or show me a new way of looking at the world.
For many reasons, I don’t think I fit the stereotypical American male profile, although I do encapsulate much of the geek profile. I enjoy reading science fiction as well as watching sci-fi movies and series. I play Eurostyle board games; especially games with building or economies. You can look up German-style board games on Wikipedia to get an idea what I'm writing about. I think writing code is fun, or maybe I just think the challenge is worthwhile. I’m not a fan of media sports, or cars, or hunting. I’d rather travel to meet people than to rest.
Bicycling through the woods on hot summer days clears my mind; that's where I will be often June-Aug. If I am exploring new trails/roads, I’m even more excited when I find myself in the mountains, I will hike up as far as possible. I guess I am an explorer at heart.
Music is important to me, listening mostly; I wish I could play the piano or guitar, but I my expertise is the clarinet. I thoroughly enjoyed a music theory course in college, and sometimes wish I could compose my own music.
I’m a liberal and pro-socialism. Socialism rocks.
I’m bisexual, most definitely pro-polyamory, possibly demisexual - still looking into that.
I was in an open relationship with metacheerful for five years; we are still best of friends. He’s a terrific guy; I could write much more, but it’s easier to just check his profile on OKC.
I’m silly; at least when I’m happy. I often make strange sounds around my friends. They don’t seem to run away.
I am geeky, shiny, happy, somewhat silly, and desiring teleport
