I'm genuine and open minded, curious and kind. I'm fun and attractive, smart and funny. I'm unconventional and empathetic. I want less stuff and more real connections. I like intimate relationships, emotional intelligence, and self awareness. I'm looking for someone like me.
I'd rather not spend a lot of time talking to a middle aged trucker posing as my future girlfriend -- I prefer to meet in person instead of trading messages.
Children in the next five years is a non-starter.
I've built a life where I can travel for fun between three and six months a year. It would be cool if you could join me.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to improve myself and the world to the best of my ability.
Traveling, building a business, making a happy life.
I’m really good at
Talking to anybody. I've been told that one of my best qualities is
being legitimately interested in other people.
I'm also awesome at a bunch of business related stuff, but unless
you want to start a company with me, I don't think you'll care.
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I'm warm?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a tremendous reader, lover of music, and devourer of food. I'm
watching fewer and fewer movies and TV shows, I'm happy about
I'm always hesitant to eat eggplant and squash, and foie gras seems
pretty cruel. I'm also not a weird organs guy; we aren't stranded
on an island. Other than that, I'm probably eating it.
Twice in my life I've turned on the TV while a movie I'd never
heard of was starting and watched the whole thing: The Usual
Suspects, and Primer. If this had happened with Pulp Fiction as
well, I think I'd believe in god.
The six things I could never do without
Curiosity, a feeling of purpose, my friends,
the social contract, a sense of humor, and critical thinking
skills... and music, I really love music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Data structures, system interactions, design patterns, cognition
and consciousness. My life. I also spend a fair amount of time
thinking about trees, I like trees.
On a typical Friday night I am
"yacketayakking screaming vomiting whispering facts and memories and anecdotes and eyeball kicks and shocks of hospitals and jails and wars,"
Also, sometimes just going to bed early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a child, I took a modern dance class at camp. I thought I'd learn how to dance with girls. It was a ballet class. I did not pursue it.
You should message me if

You've never been accused of being high maintenance.
You're kind, and thoughtful.
You're torn about having kids.
You aren't pretentious.
You've never missed a rent payment.
You're quick witted.
You laugh, a lot.
The idea of meeting in person appeals to you.
