Graduated from masters program
Rather not say
Strictly monogamous

My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
ENTP or ENFP, depending on my mood and how much sleep I've gotten that day.

I am a realistic idealist. I think coffee and beer were sent from God as a message: "Cheer up, emo kid."

I believe.
I believe that.
I believe that we.
I believe that we will win.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Nerd attempting to make himself useful to the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking brownies. I have omitted the description of the brownies from my profile in an attempt to raise their intrigue factor.

Tech stuff. Sciencing. Breakdancing (not intended to be a factual statement). Hugs. Listening. Bartending.

It is extraordinarily dangerous to get me into a karaoke bar.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to think I have rather nice-looking eyes. I often approach people with a smile, and have pretty good teeth for someone who's never had braces.

I have a generally young-looking face but increasingly salty salt-and-pepper hair. Should I dye it? VOTE, INTERNET: Y/N

On my good days I get this strange feeling that either Aaron Sorkin or Joss Whedon are writing my dialogue. On the bad ones, it's George Lucas. (Don't shame me, nerds. You know of what I speak.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
a) Anything by David Brin, Stephen King, or (secret guilty pleasure) Diane Duane and Diane Carey. One of these days I need to get around to reading those books by Jonathan Safran Foer. Harry Potter, naturally. And doesn't anyone else understand that Dan Brown is a TERRIBLE, AWFUL author?

I LOATHE Dostoevsky. Ask me why!

I do think I haven't gotten enough exposure to "Good Literature™," and feel like I need to fix that. If you have suggestions for me, I'm always willing to listen. Let's start a book club. I am a voracious reader with somewhat limited horizons of late.

b) Honestly I don't even know where to start the movies list.

c) Muse, Doves, British Sea Power, Radiohead, etc. etc. U2, Guster, Jump Little Children, The Arcade Fire, Barenaked Ladies (yup, that's right!), Get Up Kids, Foo Fighters, Nada Surf, Green Day, Pixies, Band of Horses, Howie Day, Vale, Jimmy Eat World, Angels & Airwaves, The Airborne Toxic Event, Flickerstick, Frightened Rabbit, The Decemberists. Music is a pretty big deal to me. How did I leave Josh Ritter off this list?

d) MEXICAN. Anything spicy, really. I was more or less raised on spicy food -- even the desserts/cakes were spicy.

I also would like to note that we engineers love ordered lists like the one above.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Notre. Dame. Fighting. Irish. Football. SUCKA! (You really don't have to share this passion. Even toleration with smirking and rolling your eyes is entirely acceptable. We all have our little allegiances to things.)

What the hell happened to me? I used to never pay attention to sports of any kind. Then I went to ND and suddenly I am Captain NCAA. (ETA: Okay, this isn't ENTIRELY true. I was always a New York sports fan to some degree or another, but there's nothing like living in Northern Indiana for six years to make you MUCH MORE of a New Yorker than you were when you lived in New York. DC is sort of ratcheting me down.)

Caffeine is my anti-anti-drug.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Actually, lately I've found myself thinking a lot about all the people you meet in passing or just walk past on the street who could be your best friend or true love, and since you won't have any more contact with them, you'll never know. There's something weirdly tragic about that. Imagine the things humanity could accomplish if we were able to really connect with all the people in the world who were really and truly your allies. How would the dividing lines be formed?

This is straddling the line between fantasy, science fiction and sociology, but it's still interesting!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
More than likely out in a Mt. Pleasant/Columbia Heights or U St bar. Maybe at a concert if I've done my research that week. Maybe doing laundry if I'm feeling EXTRA cool.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a terrifying phobia of fungus, and nothing else. There is a Story™ behind this. It is short and silly.

I'm cuddly. Physical contact makes me happy.

I never message the same person twice without a message back. I hear too many stories about dudes harassing women on here and I think it sucks.
