My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a few things. I'm a thinker. I'm a hoper. I'm a dancer and singer. I'm a skeptic, but also sort of a fool. I'm a thief (honestly!). I'm a bit of a wordsmith. I'm an asshole sometimes, but I'm usually sweet about it. I'm a close friend. I'm a raging, gossipy bitch. I'm a jolly good fellow. I'm the one, the only one, built like an Amazon. I am the very model of a modern major-general.

When restaurants ask for a name to call, I always forget what I'm supposed to tell them. I wouldn't call it an identity crisis, but it's not straightforward, either.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Rolling with the punches until I get somewhere.
Also some research. It leads to small joys in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being disarmingly up-front about sensitive issues, accidentally making people doubt themselves, opening my mouth to talk before I'm completely sure of what I'm saying (sometimes I sound quick-witted, sometimes I sound like "herp-derp!"), typing in a way that is wholly unlike how I talk, telling stories that make me look bad, karaoke and other public displays of drunkenness, going from vulgar to debonair in a heartbeat, going from debonair to vulgar in another heartbeat, making claims in a dating site profile that I probably can't substantiate
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My gorilla-like frame.
I occasionally get complimented on my eyes, which works out well, because I find them captivating, myself. I stare longingly at the mirror for at least an hour every morning.
I've had more than a few strangers tug on my beard.
I've been told some enjoy my hearty laugh, but sometimes I cackle and it sounds stupid, so it breaks even.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A number of H.G. Wells stories; Poe's works; Kafka's unsettling gibberish; Hitchhiker's guide to the etc.; Flowers for Algernon; Orwell was pretty good; reading through the works of Gladwell and Eggers; am madly in love with Patrick Rothfuss.

Movies: So much to choose from... Can I just say the words Joss Whedon, Simon Pegg, and Kevin Spacey for now? Oh oh Robert Downey Jr.! There is more, I promise. I am also a fan of The Doctor.

Music: Many things. Poppy things, classic things, certain hip hop, impressive guitar (i.e. McKee) and clever piano (i.e. Wainwright). I collect songs individually rather than by genre. I am not afraid to sing the girl's part. Radiohead and Cake have ancient places in my heart, Saul Williams and Vienna Teng have new ones. I also once danced my ass off to the sound of electric mandolin in a bike shop.

Food: I really dig sandwiches (pita or grilled sourdough are winners), I enjoy pastas and salads, am a consumer of myriad sushi, and we are likely to have a problem if you are withholding a good tomato from me. I do consume slabs of meat, but I had pangs of remorse when I discovered the oyster I just ate was still alive. I've been cooking for myself since before pubescence, so I've learned a thing or ten. I'm by no means a chef, but I do know how to run my kitchen. I love creating and tweaking recipes, ones that I will almost surely forget to write down.

I suppose I could also mention here that I've been a musician myself in some capacity or another since I was eleven years old: classical violin (mediocre); guitar (poorly self-taught); mandolin (getting along quite well); piano (hopeless); vocals (matter of opinion); banjo (in rapturous love).
I love to make music however I can, but mostly privately. Except Karaoke. That doesn't count at all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A computerbox with electricity and internet. Power outages crush my dreams!
-Ice cold water, always.
-Fantastic blankets and white noise.
-Engaging, intelligent conversation.
-Good people, the sort that I can get comfortable with over a drink.
-Music. Yeah, lame response, right? But honestly if I go too long without music in my life I get depressed and moody and I never remember why. So, music!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The cleverness of the human brain.
How I'm fitting in: to the big picture; at my work; with my friends.
Where the hell is that noise/smell coming from? Why does nobody else care? I am now Sherlocke Holmes.
Whether or not I'm actually exerting enough effort in what I do, then, immediately, how I can get out of going to class.
Where I'll be in a year, in two, in ten.
Philosophies I can't quite grasp fully.

Honestly, barring that first one, I don't spend THAT much time on these things. I think about a lot of the same old mundane junk anyone does. These are just the things I find rewarding or entertaining to preoccupy myself with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Gathering people up to have an aimless night of walking, conversation, dancing, drinking, or some combination of the lot.

I also like to sit back and yell mean things at terrible movies with a friend or three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually a terrible student. I wing through courses on intuition. I can't remember who I tricked to make it into a PhD program. I think it was "all of them".

Also, I am actually three ducks wearing a man suit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you'd enjoy a nice chat. This is primary.

you like excessively cerebral conversations, or, alternatively, you like incredibly stupid ones.
you don't mind a guy with a loose tongue.
you are capable of interpreting sarcasm appropriately; getting upset over deprecating humor is an enormous turn-off.
you are, on the other hand, also able to have conversations at length without the use of any sarcasm whatsoever; balance it out, yo!
you want to argue about something on this page.
you can form the message entirely in haiku.
you are errant, chasing windmills, and have a story to share.
