My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off I'm a huge nerd and love it. Second off: I adore cats and books. My idea of a great night together requires nothing more than this future us together on a couch, with a cup of tea/coffee curled up each reading a book we enjoy. If you don't read books then I likely don't want to know you. Sad but true. I also love philosophy and the last year or so I've been studying esoteric stuff more and more. I like formal fashion as a preference but really I'm a huge hippie: I was just at the Northeast Rainbow Gathering this year (a hare krishna just kept stuffing me full of pot brownies, it was amazing).

In general though I'm a pretty sincere, chill, polymath kind of guy who tends to really care about trying to live up to my own standards. I can be really romantic if chemistry occurs but not the dependent type, nor do I waste time on being jealous. Beyond that I love working out lately and reading the few well translated Hindu epics. If you want to come be a [insert non-confornist of your choice] with me let me know and we can get some coffee or go for a walk. I'm a friendly person so feel free to message me. :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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 frequently, and I'm educating the hell out of myself in my spare time (a lot of psychology lately). I also practice zen buddhism when I have the time. Exploring the city on my bike 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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being honest. Making people think I'm underage by looks alone, starting great conversations with absolute strangers (I am the master of getting free coffee because of this).

Random information, being non-conformist and breaking peoples expectations. Being super tall. And I mean SUPER tall.

Technology, socializing, fixing computer problems.

Appreciating you for who you are and what you naturally look like, not who you pretend to be or look like.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Books/ebooks
-bicycles
-a notebook to write in with pen
-metaphor
-education.

Oh, that's five, hrm, then my cats too! :>
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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. Why do people try to date others to fill the holes they have in themselves rather than letting go of their "demands and expectations" and heal themselves first. Seriously, I've come to realize that expectations are a projection of the beholder, especially in dating. Jungian psychology and esoteric symbolism too. The gender bias against women in almost everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been on a roller-coaster.

I have a lot of enthusiasm when it comes to sharing knowledge/information. It can be contagious.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You really should message me rather than hope and wait for me to message you. I don't need to be another one of the thousands of gentlemen callers who messages every attractive girl on this site. I just feel I can do something better with my life than drooling over someone while in line to have my messages read. So be proactive and write something! If that's too much for you in the name of love than I can't help you.

But seriously, if you think we'd get along go head and start a good conversation and break some gender stereotypes, you never know what might come of it. 😊
