Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Have you ever been in love? It was a really long time ago but I'll
never forget it. Epic. Wonderful. And yes, sometimes quite
challenging. It made me feel a little kid sometimes - happy and
excited - but it also gave me this crazy drive to be a super
responsible man/provider/hunter. Primal = hot.
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
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
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides paying $20 to OKCupid to find out that one gay dude in
Pennsylvania and four cougars liked my profile? :)
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
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’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I crouch to eye level when I talk to kids.
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."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Having a creative space
Whiteboard and dry erase markers for whatever algorithm I'm trying
to work out in my head.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wearing a haz-mat suit & defusing bombs in unmarked cars

I've been studying Spanish since kindergarten (yes, in Nebraska)
and I can barely order at Taco Bell. Working my way up to El Pollo
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

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
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
