My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Engineer by day, superhero by night LOL

I was long time hesitant to start learning how to play golf, but I am fully convinced if you put it like that (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi6fPwWuO9I). LOL

R.I.P. dear Robin Williams. His death a great reminder to all of us why we have to cherish and love dear ones every day. There is might be no tomorrow if we don't. :(

Anyway ....

Live in San Jose :: Work in Palo Alto :: Play and have fun all over Bay Area.

Made in USSR ( Russia) :: Reborn in Texas 2001 :: Baptized Texas A&M Aggie 2003 :: Married in 2003 :: Divorced 2008 :: No kids :: No Baggage :: Survived Las Vegas 2008-09 :: Enjoy Bay Area since 2009

I seem to be passionate about life and all it has to offer. I like to stay healthy physically and mentally but allergy season is killing me (any superhero has Achilles' heel) and mental part is hard to control with all crazy stuff is going on around and with us as a society. I still like a sense of being driven by some good substantial and Noble idea, constantly moving forward, challenge myself, learn new ways of become better me and contribute more for better society. Hard to believe but I am very humanistic, pacifistic and altruistic person.

Humor and sarcasm aimed predominantly to myself help me a lot with day by day operation.

Be aware, being intellectual and mindful person, does not mean I am all proper. I know how to treat woman right, and be chivalrous, but I have and appreciate dirty sense of humor (Woody Allen, Chris Rock, Katt Williams, Kevin Love). So, if you are looking for a proper bible belt, close my profile immediately and do not waste your timer. But if you are looking for a solid guy with strong family values but very open minded and with bad boy personality you are arrived. :)

BTW, those guys are rock lately: http://www.cc.com/shows/key-and-peele

But Chris Rock said it the best: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPesKyIhGZg (Especially from 5:20)

Anyway, good luck, and lets fortune be on your side.

Cool description of all 16 types: http://www.16personalities.com/personality-types
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living a dream ... Considering overwhelming odds and amount of skepticism and criticism I used to get growing up I have done much better than anybody could anticipate, including me, and I have pretty vivid imagination. :) But who really cares? It is not about what we have, but about what we do with it. So, constantly learning ways of how to contribute more, develop yourself further, and pass it forward is underlined of my life strategy for next 50 years. :) Deep, I know. I have this thing about myself to start light and funny and end up deeply philosophical ... :) Getting old is not fun, I tell you. :))))
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Math ... procrastination ... common sense ... predicting outcome of complex scientific experiments and sports ... finding sarcasm in everything ... finishing assignments in a minimum amount of time and with minimum effort and resources ... finding adventure on my round behind LOL
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an accent since I was born and raised in Russia, unless we speak Russian, then, I do not have an accent, but I smile way too much for Russian, it is why I was extradited. The rest, I have to say, must be individual. I am communicative but I won't get alone with everybody as well as my sense of humor is not universal, but my friends do appreciate it. :) And if you will get to know me you won't miss the fact I am very straightforward.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: something spiritually uplifting and developing, classic always good ...
Movies: less special effects and superheroes crap, more real people story and good old acting ...
Shows: do not have cable, but internet and Netflix keep me in the loop (TED Talk, Documentaries, House M.D., Lost, Dexter, House of Cards, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Supernatural (do not judge LOL))
Food: love all kind of cuisines; uncharacteristically love spicy food; microbrewery beers and good wines and scotch.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Breath is a true gift, everything else is secondary:
peace of mind and be healthy
purpose in life
love
friends and family
freedom of expressing yourself
traveling
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... those important things in life I mentioned above
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending quality relaxing time with friends, with some cool activities, good food, nice wine, and a lot of laughs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess, It would be a good idea to mention here the fact I was married before, 2003-2008. It did affect me a lot, but thankfully I am over, no baggage, no kids, just a lot of experience. I think, my other past long-term relationship was more crippling and traumatic, but I am over it too, even more experience. :)) Thus, I took significant amount of time, 2+ years, to fully recover and be ready to give a real chance to have a healthy and harmonic relationship not affected by anything from anybody past.

I am very open-minded when it comes to a relationship. I am not looking for traditional gender roles relationship.

One thing is probably already obvious from my Q&As I am very open minded including sexuality. It does NOT mean I am promiscuous or looking primarily for sex here, no open relationship desire either. I am actually very assertive when it comes to intimacy until I feel a strong physical and most importantly emotional connection. Just sex is like fast-food, it is everywhere, and it does not matter how it presented, it is always bad for you. I strongly believe in a relationship built not on restraining but acceptance and support, no matter what Consciously built and maintained monogamous relationship can offer more than any open or non-monogamous relationship. I hope one day we stop divide people on straight, gay, bi, or anything else. It would be such a relief to share my life with somebody who is similar to me and equally ready to embrace my individuality as well as I am her no matter what it is.

If you don't take life and yourself too serious, but looking for substance in everything you do in life.
If you intellectual but humble yourself and stay away from calling yourself smart.
If you secure with yourself, drama free, open minded and adventurous person.
If you independent, ambitious and organized, but still altruistic, romantic and seeking for somebody to enjoy all aspects of life together.
If you like your humor as your martini, extra dirty. :)
If you are a great kisser and selfless lover and you know it without anybody telling you. What a disappointment to deal with self consumed divas who do not even comprehend how awful they are? Like they say: you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you kiss a true princess. :)

DON'T MESSAGE ME:

If you do not have time to read my profile, it just means how committed you are to find meaningful relationship.

If you ask me in writing how to pronounce my name. :) I wonder what would be your reaction if somebody ask you about it in writing. :) It is a ridiculous question, despite the fact my name is not typical American name. It is still written in English. And I am still heavily relying on your ability to read. If nothing else helps internet is there to rescue you. :)
