My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a scientist! Kind of. I work in bioinformatics which is awesome, but almost certainly not why anyone visits a profile like this.

I like my life; I'm not unhappy being single and I don't really feel like there is some gaping hole because I'm not in a relationship. That being said, I think it would be nice to find a connection with someone. I'm a very curious person, and I find myself learning all the time. It is POSSIBLE I may have spent more time learning about science and whatnot than trying to get a girlfriend. Which MAY have landed me in this 'no-girlfriend' predicament. There's no way to really verify that though, so I guess we'll never know.

I'm pretty type 'B', though I'm prone to mild obsession when it comes to learning about something new and/or interesting.

I'm perhaps a smidgen skeptical. *shrug* scientists, amirite?

I love board/card games. I think they are clever. Plus, fun.

For Meyers-Briggs fans, I pretty consistently score INTJ. INTP is the next best possibility. Also, I have psoriasis. Which is annoying dry skin. Apparently I'm also way too honest about myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been known to align a DNA sequence or two. I do computational genetic/genomic analysis. But I feel like I'm better off following the Fight Club rules when it comes to work.

I just bought a house! So, have a whole new slew of things that need to get done. Plus planning all the awesome stuff that COULD be done. (roof deck? I posit 'yes')

I enjoy cooking; at this point I look at recipes for inspiration and then tend to alter them to my own style. I read quite a bit, though I don't have time to read like I used to. I got rid of my car a while ago, as I did not use it often enough to make it worthwhile. I'm currently on the fence about whether or not I should get another. I was in really good shape before I went to grad school, but because the program I was in was pretty rigorous, I stopped running and fell out of the "in shape" crowd. I'm getting back into running, and its alternatively head-shakingly sad I'm so out of shape and so awesome to get back out and stretch my legs again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Science! Strategic thinking. Not being offended. Computers and programming. Being hilarious/laughing honestly. I don't think of myself as an optimist per se, but I like finding what is good about a situation, rather than getting lost in negativity.

Also, looking super tight. I'd date me. (I definitely did not say that too myself in the creepy Silence of the Lambs killer voice as I wrote that)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, personally. My friends say it is my smoldering, dark handsomeness, with icy ocean-deep blue eyes that seem to stare straight into your soul. Also they like, have stars in them. Or perhaps that even though I exhibit a sense of danger and excitement women always seem to feel safe around me, possibly because of my incredible self-confidence, and devil may care attitude. At least that's what my friends say. Not me. Friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy movies, especially in the sci-fi/fantasy realm. One of my friends said there is no way a story can't be made better by putting it in space. I'm not sure if that's true, but I think we should find out. For some reason which I don't quite understand, I love terrible horror movies. Also, good horror movies, though those are in short supply. Some examples of things I enjoy.. the new Star Trek movies, LotR, the old Star Wars movies, Alien, Predator, Minority Report, District 9, Firefly, The Shrine (a good horror movie) and Dead Alive (so bad its good). I also enjoy documentaries, or movies that make you ponder DEEP THOUGHTS. I wish there were more movies with a central theme of eastern philosophy, suggestions welcome.

My taste in music is pretty eclectic. I don't listen to much rap or country, but I'm not vehemently opposed to them. I like indie rock a lot. Things like Animal Collective, Vampire Weekend, They Might Be Giants, My Robot Friend, Cloud Cult, Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, Mika, The Naked and Famous, MGMT, Robyn, Portishead, Weezer, Cold War Kids, Grouplove are all on a recent playlist.

I'm a big book fan. While I mostly read fiction I generally follow my 7th grade teacher's philosophy: if it is well written I tend to enjoy it. (ok, also sometimes if it is terrible I still like it). Having a kindle is fantastic, I get to carry a library wherever I go(!). Lets see.. Most anything by Neil Gaiman (I'm a Sandman fan); his recent works have really hit me where I live somehow. Recently been loving Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson. Oddly not a fan of Game of Thrones but read the first 2 and 1/2 books (haven't watched show). A guilty pleasure of mine is still reading Young Adult novels. I also like reading about programming languages and the latest and greatest scientific stuff. I also like clever non-fiction stuff in the way of Freakonomics.

Eclectic board games no one has heard of. Dominion has easily taken up more time than any other game. Race for the Galaxy was a recent popular favorite. Puerto Rico, Ticket to Ride, Power Grid, Shogun, Battlestar Galactica, The Resistance and Castles of Burgundy have all hit the table recently. Love Letter and Netrunner have been the most recent hits. All time favorite board game is Dominant Species, and a close second is currently Terra Mystica. Major points if you have heard of ANY of these :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm going to assume this question is more like "things that I love and would dearly miss if they were gone". Otherwise, it'd be a list of you know, air/water/food etc.
Computers/internet
Books! (or more recently, my kindle)
Coffee
Family
...spices?

Honestly... I think I might not have six things. Well, interesting/defining ones. Huh.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to trick people into playing a board game.
How to treat people. Which is both difficult and easy, depending on how you look at it.
Why it seems everyone wants to be part of a two member criminal gang.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lurking. Creepily. Haha! Just kidding. I no longer do that. ¬_¬

Honestly, probably watching John Stewart or Colbert from the night before (Hulu has a 24hr lag). Or planning meals to make during the weekend, because cooking is awesome. Recently, it has been planning/doing house projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In the section on the "first things people notice about me" above I may have embellished slightly. Also, it is possible my friends may not have actually said any of those things about me. I mean, they could have. I don't know for sure, I don't follow them around and tape everything they say, GOD. Statistically it seems at some point one of them HAD to have described me that way though.

Also I'm not good at statistics.

Also I'm sorry for earlier invoking Buffalo Bill from the Silence of the Lambs. That was wrong.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hah! Good one, okc. Alright, well if you are the rare breed of lady that actually messages guys first:

I'm awesome! You probably deserve to know someone awesome. Treat yo self.

Or, that you actually read the book (i.e. 'profile') above. That's way to much stuff. I need to get rid of it.

Actually, if you want me to message YOU, 'like' my profile. This isn't a stunt to get 'likes' or something (for a mysterious competition where I will win all the science), I've just found that people visiting my profile gives no indication as to whether or not you actually LIKE the profile. I've read some concerning articles about ladies being harassed with tons of messages and I have no desire to add to the deluge. If we like each other, then I'll at least have some indication messaging you may garner a response. I can't imagine this is the most romantic thing to say, but consider this just me confirming that I'm a scientist. Unfortunately I don't actually pay for this so I don't always know the identity of everyone; this is admittedly a weakness in my brilliant plan >:-(
