My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Eli. I'm mostly looking to make some new friends, but I'm equally open to a deep relationship.

I'm most attracted to smart, deep, down-to-earth, compassionate, and emotionally open people, who have and act on a passion for *something* in their life. I'm not looking for perfection and I don't expect you to be Gandhi, but I'm especially interested in someone whose life goes beyond just playing video games, clubbing, or watching TV.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life tends towards purposeful experiences: my idea of fun tends to involve accomplishing meaningful things for people and communities. I lived in the Netherlands for a year in grad school, and it still heavily influences how I try to live my life.

I work for a large tech company as a user researcher. But I'm really not a computer nerd (although geeky people and math geniuses are awesome by me.)

Outside of my work, I've done a ton of community organizing around Seattle - primarily around making Seattle a safer and more comfortable place for everyone to walk and bike. It can be intoxicating to advocate for projects, see them get built, and benefit tons of people you've never even met. Recently started working on Capitol Hill safety issues after buying a home there.

I'm introverted and substantive. I'm really engaged by authentic and deep sharing with someone I care about. Seeing a piece of the world in a new way rules.

Not really into getting drunk, clubbing, the latest celebrity fads, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking on "hard challenges" in a short period of time, living modestly and frugally. I'm also fairly modest and understated in person, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile a lot, and I can look younger than my actual age.

I have never owned an automobile, not do I plan to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm honestly more into making things than consuming popular culture.

Can't speak for pop music, but I run an independent music label on the side for fun (publishing CDs of music about science-fiction, fantasy and space themes, mostly by obscure science-fiction authors). NASA used our music to wake up one of the Mars rovers (hopefully not unpleasantly.)

Love food, especially almost any sushi, Portland food carts. If we become friends (and your butt can handle it), I can take you on a calorie-neutral summer Portland food cart bike tour.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Integrity, compassion, my Brompton folding bicycle, making a difference, a Mac, and...ooh...I'll admit it...my mom.

If I had to name a 7th, it would be my treadmill desk. (geek alert)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Finishing my house renovation. ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working late. Lame, I know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often find Asian people more physically beautiful than white people. (sorry fellow white people, I love you too!)

OKC says I'm "less sex-driven", and I think it's right: I am just as horny as everyone else -- but I'm totally turned off by guys who pressure to get buck naked when we've just barely met. I respect that some people gain emotional intimacy by exploring each others' bodies rather than their minds, or just see sex as another form of recreation. Or perhaps some fear that if they don't jump in bed, they'll be abandoned for someone else. No judgment here.

But at this point in my life, I reserve sex as an intimate activity with a special person who I already know and can trust as a friend -- not as casual fun between strangers. (not to mention, I value a healthy life, and I'm pretty committed to staying STD free - both for myself, and for the health of my future partner.)

You're looking to make a new friend or potentially a new relationship. (sorry, no pen pals.)
