Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Edit: visiting SF for the first time in August.
Overall I'd like to think that I'm a genuine, down-to-earth guy. My
favourite kind of music is songs I like, and I'm less into songs I
don't like. I like all foods except those I dislike. I'm very
To review, I actually do consider myself genuine and down-to-earth,
but it seems so generic that I felt like an accompanying paragraph
of universal truths was basically required. I swear I'm kind of
funny sometimes, but it doesn't always translate into text so
I'm a masculine gay - nope, not self-hating, it's just who I am. I
think the phrase 'more "guy" than "gay"' summarizes things
succinctly... Granted, some gays find that line offensive, but my
objective isn't to insult - I've just found that that line tends to
resonate with the guys I get along with best.
I like cars and have been known to ruin jeans while working on
them, helping to feed that pile of holey jeans that always comes in
so handy around laundry day. I'm generally into technical things...
I study engineering. I can talk about feelings though, and I'm
actually pretty outgoing.
Generally speaking, I'm into masculine guys and good conversation.
Good conversation (by my definition) doesn't have to mean deep or
life-changing - just that you're both engaged and can easily build
off of each others' ideas or jokes. Masculinity and being in good
shape are generally the things that make guys physically attractive
to me, but quality of conversation is the thing that makes the
difference between "would bang" and "would bang with intent to
date." "Would not bang" comes up sometimes too, I swear.
Special note to all super-attractive guys: wink
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After two years in a Master's program I took the red pill, drank
the kool-aid, etc etc metaphor metaphor and switched to a PhD. I
sincerely hope that this doesn't blow up in my face.
Once upon a time my greatest goal was to initiate some kind of
paradigm shift. Nowadays, I've started to acknowledge that other
things (like having a social life and a significant other) will
probably take priority. I still dream of changing the world [...for
the better...], but the realist in me acknowledges that that's
pretty hard for one person to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh... usually, but not exclusively, with me
Explaining things I understand
Asking piercing questions
Overanalyzing trivial decisions, then making life-changing ones
without much thought
Juggling fruits. I mean this literally, and only literally.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most would notice my spiky hair. Super-attractive people would, of
course, notice that I trip over my words, my feet, and any
furniture that has the misfortune of being in my general vicinity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: my childhood favourite was "The [New] Way Things Work," a
book full of illustrations of machines... and wooly mammoths
operating them, presumably because the illustrator was obsessed
with mammoths. My decision to enter engineering surprised nobody. I
also really liked "The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy," although
if you read the whole series it got pretty depressing by the end.
Nowadays I find myself reading mostly textbooks, but when I do read
fiction it's usually mysteries.
Movies: I rarely keep on top of new releases, but I tend to like
anything with a good plot twist.
Shows: newly introduced to Archer and I'm hooked. Arrested
Development is an old favourite. I've also started lazily following
The Good Wife and Elementary
Food: pretty much anything with meat, sugar, or butter. My
favourite is obviously deep fried steak with molasses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

It's easy to make me cry if you know a sad story about a dog.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If the phrase "more guy than gay" speaks to you, then definitely
message me :)
Also, if you're an Olympic athlete, Nobel laureate, or both, it's
likely you should message me.
