My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TL;DR I am far less cool than I think I am. Philosophy nerd and all-round geek who enjoys tabletop games and chatting about what we know, how we know it, and how we can justify saying we know it.

So you know, a fun time.

To maybe show my nerdy side a biiiit too much right off the bat: I'm huge into statistics and data. Properly conceived and executed studies can get past the 'common sense' answers (that are so very often entirely wrong) and down into the real heart of social, political and ethical questions. If you can blind me with stats and real evidence, you've got me in the palm of your hand. I am also in the process of building my own tabletop game.

I'm pretty geeky. Body and sex positive. I'm a cis, white, mostly straight dude, but I am absolutely gay- lesbian- and trans-friendly. I have a love of discovery and knowledge. I love psychology, sociology and general sciences, but am currently studying my way through the nursing program.

I love dancing like an idiot. I can't dance well, but I can dance AWESOME, and that's good enough for me.

I love talking esoteric mindstuff like human bias, politics and philosophy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school. Nursing and Philosophy, taking classes on biomedical ethics.

The only reason I don't go into the sciences directly is because I like all of them too much to pick one. Physics! No, engineering! No wait, medical science! No wait, this one, that one, the other one!

Getting back into music. I play bass and drums, and I'm having a blast with both.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
High-fives! I'm very good at forgetting my age when asked. I play bass and drums passably well.

Trial-and-erroring my way through computer software issues. I know just enough to know what not to do, but not enough to suss out a problem just by looking at it. I spend inordinate amounts of time poking my computer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fedora ('Nice Guy' red flag #1!). The moustache (#2). If you're really observant, the fact that my eyes are different colours - brown and green. I actually have a scar on my chin and a dimple in one eye from the accident that caused my eye colour change. I am not naturally heterochromatic.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People. I adore being with people. Even if I don't know them, just being in a group of energetic people makes me feel better.

Art. Not necessarily picture art (though that is great too) but the always-ephemeral 'art' as a broad definition. Theatre, film, song, dance; all of these are art and all of these are essential to the formation and continuation of culture. Without art, humanity would be unrecognizable.

More precise than the loose term 'art'; making music and writing.

For those of you not keeping count, this list is not comprised of six things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ridiculous number of messages women receive on OKcupid, and how I can best avoid adding to the drudge.

Tropes. DAMN YOU T.V. TROPES WIKI! You have ruined my life!

Metacognition. Thinking about thinking. Thoughts, and where they come from.

Related to metacognition, neurobiology; how the brain works.

Related to neurobiology; psychology, sociology, philosophy and the like.

Current events, history, healthy living.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work in a restaurant. Friday is WORK day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Particle accelerators totally give me a hadron.

I'm on a dating site.

I play Dwarf Fortress. Sometimes, I wish I'd taken up heroin instead.

Sometimes, I poop. It's true! Just don't tell anyone.

I will talk myself into obscurity with alarming regularity, and go off on tangents about some of the most obscure knowledge I have.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If the rest of my profile didn't convince you, I can't think of anything else I could say to change your mind, but here goes:

I'm an off-beat, geeky dude, so if you're into that, go ahead and message me. Fair warning though, I am gregarious like a madman. I will talk like we're best friends right from the get-go.

I'm also not one for sending messages back and forth endlessly. I'd rather meet in person.
