Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am in a very happy co-habitating relationship with a human I met
on this here website. But I continue to be fascinated by all you
wildly different folks looking for love/sex/dates on the internet!
I'd be delighted if any of you want to chat about gender,
sexuality, internet dating, science, math, art, why I chose to
upload a picture of myself in a dress, etc.!
The rest of my profile I've left the same as when I was actively
I am deeply fascinated by the world I live in. I love getting to
know people well, though I often feel that it does not come
naturally to me. A friend once told me that I was the most
scientifically minded person he knew. I took this as a compliment.
I like being outside and going on walks without a destination. I
really like intricacies in art and in nature. I am incredibly
patient. I think enjoying your life and helping other people enjoy
theirs is the most important thing.
In high school, I was voted "Most wish you were stranded with on a
desert island." I'm still proud of that one.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting yet another academic research job (making computer models
of human behavior), applying to philosophy grad school, writing
absurd and/or science-y songs, and wondering if this website is
worth the time I spend on it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do much more listening than talking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Gödel, Escher, Bach
Movies: Pixar, The Big Lebowski, Adaptation, But I'm a
TV: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Avatar: The Last
Airbender, and Carl Sagan's Cosmos.
Music: They Might Be Giants and Frank Zappa. And anyone else
that playfully blends musical genres. It is very hard to find music
that I genuinely don't like.
Food: Ice cream. And I will always defend vanilla as a
legitimate flavor, not just "plain".
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Collective human knowledge
Someone to share my experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Large numbers and infinity, the role of gender in human
interactions, the musical instruments I still want to learn, how
computers and the internet are changing the world, computer-based
art projects, how science is often misrepresented, how language
works, how awesome evolution is, and how atheists can advance their
worldview without creating a culture war with religious groups.
Also, for the sake of honesty, breasts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Browsing OkCupid with my left and playing the piano with my right
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm way more turned off by people who get the logic/math/grammar
match questions wrong on here than I care to admit. I'm also
slightly embarrassed about the fact that I think my "personality"
tab does a really good job of describing me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Just go ahead and do it. I like getting notes.
But definitely if you are any or all of the following:
- a feminist
- an atheist/skeptic/materialist
- a scientist/mathematician/computer scientist
- sex positive
- a dancing machine
- an artist
- a teacher
- super enthusiastic about your interests
Also, I'm definitely more attracted to women, but I try not to get
hung up on gender, so I'm open to everyone.
