I don't know if true love can be found online, but I pretty much use the Internet to find everything these days so maybe it's worth a shot?
So Google, if your bots are listening...
I'm looking for my dream woman. I don't know what she'll be like, which is part of the fun, but I have some guesses. I suspect she would be down to earth, semi-conservative, socially intelligent, and organized. I want a partner in crime who is self-aware, soft & strong, creative & driven, really cute sometimes, scary smart, artsy, good with language, and fun. Lover of performing arts and involvement in social organizations a plus. Especially if she can dance. Bonus points for a cute laugh. Good memory is key. I like that. Gets me every time. Cooking skills preferred. Fondness of take-out required.
I've discovered a map that I believe will lead to my ideal partner. I haven't pinpointed her coordinates yet but I hypothesize she's located two stars to the right, starboard side, straight on till morning: http://wiki.gcdn.co/images/4/4f/Standard_deviation_diagram.png
Keep in mind that nerds are supposed to be in right now. It's an emerging trend in social dating that is expected to continue. My TV nerd archetype might be Dr. Castellano from the Mindy Project, if you swap his medical knowledge for my business skills.
So I'm independent, creative, and enterprising. I'm a self-employed consultant in behavior analysis who is currently 2 years away from a PhD in business psychology. I'm entrepreneurial and ambitious but in an understated way. I guess that's to be expected after years of Taoist training. I possess a wild sense of humor. That may come as a surprise from a guy who gets scientific journals sent to his house.
Sometimes, I get so mentally focused on an idea I'm trying to work out that I can't find my glasses until I pass a mirror and realize that they are on my face. I tried to show my professor how to use the access card for the elevator a few days ago and he had to tell me, "Ben, we're already on the 9th floor..." because I kept pressing the same button and saying, "You're supposed to just swipe the card. Hmm. Let's try again." So my personality definitely has some contrasts, which is good if you like teasing me because I will provide you with a lot of material.
I am a good conversationalist, according to reports by numerous old ladies at bus stops across America. 64% agreed with the statement, "I would wait for the bus with this young man again."
TV & movies: I could watch 60's movies, Gene Kelly dance numbers, Fringe, and Justin Timberlake dance choreography.
Books: I am an avid reader, mainly business books. I majored in English in university and enjoyed reading novels at one point.
Favorite restaurants/cafes: Sugarfish, La Botte, Sun Cafe, Republic of Pie.
Whiteboard and dry erase markers for whatever algorithm I'm trying to work out in my head.
I think I'm a closet introvert. I can dominate at a seminar but when I get home, I feel best when I close my eyes for a little bit to recharge.
Or a zombie
And if you read this:
In my early 20's, my dad told me a story about his colleague who waited until his 40's to have kids. My dad was jealous of the guy because he had built up his consulting practice and could take time off when he wanted. He had money, time, and energy resources that allowed him to focus on being a big part of his son's life. He was at every little league game and always had time to read one more story.
That idea really stuck with me. I want to have kids later in life but I'm only 32 now. That's only 2 presidential terms away from optimal parenting. Science is amazing these days. The available technology to freeze an egg has positive implications for lifestyle planning.
