My self-summary
I'm a native born New Yorker who grew up in the suburbia of Massachusetts, and went to college at Northeastern as a major in Mechanical Engineering but then switched to English.

I'm a massive lover of knowledge and beauty in all forms from the sciences, to the arts, to literature. I enjoy creative time when the mood hits me, especially poetry (modernistis and romantics FTW). If you bring me to a bookstore I will buy something. I enjoy being a nerd, though lately I find myself more of a smart jock as I love getting in shape.

Also I'm an ENFP (extroverted intuitive feeling perceptive) if that matters.

Smart women are super hot I think. If you hold a solidly interesting intellectual conversation with me your half way to my heart already. I can't tell you the other half though, state secrets and all, sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently getting more motivated than I ever have been before to make myself into everything I want to be and live a fit, healthy, and successful life. I try to work out daily, and I'm educating the hell out of myself in my spare time (atm I'm hooked on trying to understand all of Jungian psychology). I also practice zen buddhism when I have the time. Feeding stray cats is fun too.

Right now I'm focusing on getting my A+ technicians certificate and working my way up the entire tech certificate tree until I'm making some decent money.
I’m really good at
Being honest. But don't worry, you'll always look good in that dress ;-)
Random trivia.

Technology, complex systems, memorizing random dates.

I like art and museums.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm stupidly tall. That I'm a huge extrovert and love to meet new people. That I have almost no sense of shame and I don't mind ever being wrong if I can learn more from it.

-tools to fix stuff

Oh, that's five, hrm, then my cats too! :>
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do to move my life forward in a beneficial way. The fact that every day is a new chance to completely start anew at achieving all my dreams if hadn't started already. That happiness is really a choice at heart, even when it seems impossible. Equality. What does it mean to live a fully genuine life and own all my experiences as my own without excuses. Will I ever love anyone again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading marathon, at the gym, or hanging out with friends and partying. Or in the grass meditating somewhere if possible. Good times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to fall so passionately in love with someone I find attractive and like. I want to make them the happiest person in the world like they make me feel. I want something that I desire so deeply in our bones that we cannot say no, despite what fates may try.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You really should message me rather than hope and wait for me to message you. I don't really message any women on this site because I dislike all the societal pressure to couple up or die alone. I refuse to live a life in a hurry to be a paragon of the cultural norm. (though sometimes I try).

But seriously, if you think we'd get along go head and start a good conversation and who knows ;-)
