Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an easy-going geeky guy who's a bit shy. I'm seeking other
geeky girls, or at least geek-friendly.
I tend to be pretty laid-back and easy going. I try not to rush
into anything and look at both sides of an issue before forming an
Even though I'm usually pretty mellow about most things, I'm really
passionate about the things I really enjoy.
I also enjoy traveling and trying new things, but at the same time,
I can also get pretty nervous about new experiences. I'm looking
for someone with an open mind who can show me lots of cool places
to eat, things to try, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer for a large defense company, and I am
currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Computer Science.
In my free time, I like to play video games and read. I also like
to travel whenever I can. It seems that I have friends in almost
every state, and someday I'd like to visit them all.
I have also lost 40 lbs since June 2011 and recently completed a 5k
run/obstacle course. I learned the hard way that running on a
treadmill is not quite the same as running cross-country, but it
was a lot of fun, and I hope to try and do better next year.
I’m really good at

Most of my humor is based on observation. I typically don't say
much, but I do believe that I have an appropriate thing to say in

Help your potential matches find common interests.

Trek, The Wire, Doctor Who, Agents of SHIELD, Walking Dead,
Firefly, classic Simpsons episodes
Music: I enjoy the classics. Classic Rock, Classical Music, and
Classic Video Game Music. Really, though, I'll listen to just about
anything except rap, country, or Ke$ha.
Food: Steak! Crab Cakes! Texas Barbecue! And most recently, Sushi!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just about anything, really. My mind has a tendency to wander a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some nights, I go out in search of a good beer. Baltimore seems to
have a lot of really good bars with their own special brews, and I
always enjoy tasting them. Other nights, I just want to chill at
home with Netflix. It depends on what kind of mood I'm in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never learned to ride a bicycle. Incidentally, anyone who tells
you something is as easy riding a bike clearly has no idea of just
how many forces are involved in keeping it stable. Seriously, look
it up on Wikipedia.
