Meeting friends-of-friends is so much easier than the cold start, but I've still met a dozen interesting and intelligent girls via OKC, including one who's a really good friend (at 97%, maybe the matching numbers aren't completely bogus ... though, then that same friend created another account at only 71%, so maybe they're volatile and useless). So, there's definitely hope to find more, and hopefully a more-than-a-friend. Thus, without further ado, I've never been to the lighthouse in Discovery Park or Japan. Want to go? Granted, the latter is maybe a bit much for a first date, but it would be fun, no? I had a new year's resolution of making 2013 the year I'd actually look, aiming to meet one new person each week ... Yeah, it's been more like one person a month. Oh well, howdy there?

Love: scientific discoveries, new technology, graphics arts, typography, drawing/painting, amateur photography, computer graphics, fractals, linguistics/phonetics, writing systems, facial anthropology, psychology, retro game emulation, music theory and notation, psytrance/goa/d&b, LEGO's, origami.
Spiel: Slow Danċer seeks a Sonnet to make music with, or at least more fine folk in the area for the band. Even the scientists/engineers can't play it solo forever, despite their superior powers of resistance over such distracting forces. I'd love to find the last puzzle piece, a fellow knowledge sponge and inquisitive explorer with a good balance of curiosity with creativity/inventiveness/imagination. If you too enjoy people with a placid but optimistic view of life who are unlikely to win the next Darwin award, then keep reading. Though, if you want a geeky guy who is considerate, artistically/musically talented, and has a black belt in the martial arts, well I just can't help you there; but if you can live without the black belt, I know one (a few actually, but my friends ericrk, theholyhermit, PlanningToFail, OSUFlatland, and dingjaleco have their own profiles).
