Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a little shy, but will open up fairly quickly if you're open to
a deep discussion. I'm always seeking to learn more about life and
I deeply enjoy listening to the stories people tell about
themselves. I like to do a lot of different things, visit museums,
go for hikes, art shows, concerts, etc., but I really do prefer
going for coffee or a walk when I meet someone new.
Politics, theology and culture are some of my favorite subjects,
though I am not looking for someone who necessarily agrees with me
on any of them. I am very respectful of other points of view, and
appreciate a healthy amount of push back.
I am ambitious in respect to my education and my career, but I want
to balance that with a healthy social life as well.
I am looking for someone who is pretty independent, intelligent,
and wants a relationship based on respect, affection, and healthy
negotiation. I also appreciate a good sense of humor and the wisdom
it takes to wield it well.

Overall, I will read, watch, listen to, and eat almost anything,
with the caveat that I am a little pickier with the books I
Books: Classics, like A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens,
other well crafted books. Lots of humorous writing, like David
Sedaris' work and the novels of Douglas Adams and ilk. A good deal
of historical and other non fiction (the Omnivore's Dilemma and
others...), and the Bible (in the Greek though, as is doesn't
always say what King James says it does...).
Shows: Anything with a twisted sense of humor, high quality
storylines, or is just thought provoking in some way. Criminal
Minds, Rev (on Hulu), Dexter, Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations
and Parts Unknown, Mythbusters, etc. Some of the Ted talks have
proved very interesting. Lots of other documentaries as well.
Music: A little bit of everything, but I think it leans a little
more toward folk. Anything from Thomas Tallis to Mumford and Sons,
and most everything in between. Jim Croce. Indigo Girls. Others...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
News and books.
A notebook and pen (or several of each).
Coffee and tea. And Vietnamese food...
Interesting people to talk to.
Yarn and knitting needles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing. And how to kill off that antagonist... Or
Incarnation. Transubstantiation. And Consubstantiation. The Trinity
(no, seriously, what the heck is that?!?!? And why do I
have a little bit of sympathy for Arius, even though I think he's
How the subtleties of language translate into different
Ways to develop more healthy food culture (among other things) in
the local church. Supporting local farmers, new ways of developing
infrastructure, more ecologically friendly housing/building, and
some stuff along those lines.
Finding good and/or unusual foods. If I haven't tried it yet, I
would like to.
Why wool dries faster than cotton and linen when you get it wet...

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you made it to this part.
You have a mind open for discussion of all sorts, a wicked sense of
humor, and a little bit of a romantic streak.
Or if you know why knitting is connected to revolutions...
Or if you can start a conversation with something a little more
interesting than a lukewarm "heeey."
I do not, generally speaking, send out messages or notice if you
rate me, so, write to me. I will usually respond to an email.
