My self-summary
I'm an easy-going, somewhat nerdy PhD student at CMU. I can come across as serious and logical at times, especially when it comes to important life decisions, but I like being around people that can be a little goofy. I'm not a fan of excessive drinking or loud, wild parties. I prefer good food, humor, and conversation.

I love learning, even if the subject has nothing to do with my job or daily life. I strive toward the unattainable goal of understanding the world. Coursera/iTunes U/Wkipedia are my best friends and I read the news compulsively. I study math and computer science, but I'm a social science guy at heart. It's awfully difficult to find a middle ground between those two extremes.

I tend to be accepting and get along with a wide variety of people. That said, I have a very strong moral compass; if you are a jerk to other people for no good reason, or in some other way make the world a worse place, then we won't get along.

I also tend to be very direct (some might alternatively characterize this as "tactless"). I find it annoying when people beat around the bush.

Politically I'm center-left, but I don't have anything against people with different political views (within reason). I'm Jewish and it's part of my identity, but I'm not very observant. I enjoy some of the moral aspects of the religion though, and plan to raise my children Jewish.
What I’m doing with my life
Researching Artificial Intelligence so I can build an army of super-intelligent robots to assist me in taking over the world. I promise to be a kind and benevolent dictator.

Before this, I worked in finance/software for a while (yes, I know, I was one of *those* people), but it became taxing on my soul. For me, there could be few worse things than to know my lifetime contribution to humanity was making equity markets marginally more efficient. Finance will always be a backup, but I don't plan to go back to it. My current goal is to become a professor.

I have a desire to accomplish something meaningful and lasting with my life. I have yet to determine what exactly that will be, but I'm narrowing it down.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm ethnically ambiguous. I commonly hear Persian, Turkish, Spanish, or Cuban.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a serious man crush on George Orwell and love Dystopian fiction in general. Some other books I like include: The Hitchhiker's Guide, The Giver, and Diplomacy. Ender's Game is also on the list, but I wasn't a big fan of Card's other books.

I have a pretty mainstream sense of humor - Simpsons (from the 90's, not the later episodes), Arrested Development, 30 Rock, etc. As for movies, I really liked Airplane! but hated The Life Aquatic.

I'm big on endings. I don't care how great the movie was, if the ending was bad I will hate it. Case in point: Signs.

I love almost all food. I'm particularly a fan of Thai, Japanese and (good) Indian food. I don't like most desserts or junk food.
The six things I could never do without
People I care about.
Freedom.
Intelligent conversation.
The internet.
Cell phones.
Hot showers. <-- most important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Universal truths, human nature, opposing viewpoints, good and evil, the meaning of "love", why actors/actresses bother getting married when they seem to divorce after 2 years anyway, irrationality, conflict, nationalism, how much a medieval king would have paid just to experience a window-seat view from a plane, whether I'll ever get to fulfill my childhood dream of traveling into space, whether the human race will survive for another 200 years (I'm cautiously optimistic), if science will ever conquer death, which superpower I would pick if I had my choice, whether absolute power would corrupt me absolutely, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Game night maybe?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I believe in idealistic things like true love and soul mates.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–28
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
The most important traits I value in a partner are empathy, individuality, and kindness. Here are some others on the list:

You can have an intelligent conversation and are capable of understanding both sides of an argument.

You are at least a little geeky, nerdy, dorky, and/or quirky, but can still function as normal in the outside world.

Spending a night out clubbing doesn't really appeal to you.

You would have said No in the Milgram Experiment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment
(Although I admit probably everyone thinks they would say No)

I am not looking for a clone of myself. The ability to multiply large numbers in your head, while useful in this information-age society, isn't very important to me, though it's certainly not a drawback.

Most importantly: you are a kind, giving person that views relationships as cooperative, not competitive.
