My self-summary
I was not cool in high school, a huge dweeb. But I'm thankful for those years of reading, writing, and playing in the woods, because I don't do that stuff nearly as much as I'd like to now. Anyway, I like insightful, intelligent conversation, but I also love laughing stupidly about bodily functions, or whatever. I guess I'm still pretty not cool, but that seems to matter less and less as we age...I think.

I say over there -------> that I'm agnostic, but I'm not sure that's entirely accurate. It's more like I am always attempting to curb the enthusiasm of my oddball thoughts and attempted beliefs with reason, or the limits of knowledge by way of reason. But, in the end, some of those oddball beliefs get past the battlements of reason and take root. What some of those are could probably go in the 'most private thing I'm willing to admit section', if I were willing to admit them.
What I’m doing with my life
Proving statements like, "Any two humans have a common ancestor." It's a real combinatorial proof. That's the kind of math I like: cocktail party math. Also, walking, biking, getting drinks with friends, watching shows on the internet, reading fun novels--the usual stuff.
I’m really good at
I think I'm pretty good at cooking. I was a good goalie once upon a time. Elementary mathematics, up to calculus. Fixing a flat tire on a bike(although it is REALLY annoying). Building fires, roughing it...although I don't do either nearly enough.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have, so some friends have said, a distinct laugh that is also loveable. I smile quite a bit, and if one looks close enough, am developing some crow's feet due to excessive smiling. I'm cool with it--rather that then something due to excessive frowning.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Journey through Genius--great math history book with real math in it. Fiction these days is usually sci-fi. I really love Ian M. Banks' Culture novels. Lord of the Rings is one of my all time favorites. I love anything with Sherlock Holmes in it, either the original stories, or shows based off of them. Miyazaki movies are all wonderful gems. I watch a lot of shows. Some of my favorites are Star Trek, X-files, Futurama. Recently I watched a lot of House episodes, and really enjoyed it. I like all kinds of music, maybe usually a little on the experimental side. I'm more into sounds than lyrics, but occasionally the words just hit deep, and I can't help but like it. Food....I love food. I quit being a vegetarian after 7 years because I kept dreaming about fried chicken.
The six things I could never do without
Mathematics, especially the teaching of it--seriously, I think math might have saved my life a little. A well-supplied kitchen, with all the little doodads. A small network of friends, around whom I feel free and non-judged. Brief to prolonged journeys to non-urban areas of the world. To really feel most alive, I need paper, a favored writing utensil, and I need to put those two together during prolonged sessions of thought and/or creativity. This actually happens too infrequently.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Vision, for some reason. How we perceive by way of sight just fascinates me so much. The organ for collecting electromagnetic information is so complex and interesting, but then maybe even more interesting to me is the brain's processing of that sensory information, in that what our eyes literally collect isn't what we end up consciously perceiving. It's just a standby topic that I can always go back to and find fascinating, not least of which because it's literally interesting, but can also be metaphorically interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
blasting my ears with Sunn O))) and razing my mind with Philip K Dick.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be very spacey, and I have a weird memory. It's horrible when it comes to life events, but amazing when it comes to mental ideas. It's hard to explain to what extent it's weird--you just have to see it to believe it. But I swear I'm not stupid.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–39
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You found any of the above interesting.

You get fulfillment from being in nature--you love the plants and animals and rivers and mountains and oceans, and want to spend time surrounded by all that on a regular basis.

I like math like some people like traveling, and so that word might have slipped out a few times in this profile, just like 'traveling' might slip out a bit for people who are passionate about such a thing. The nice thing about math though is that I can go on those adventures without ever having to leave home, and still make it into the kitchen every night to make a yummy soup or stew or quiche. I don't expect anyone to go with me on those journeys except my fellow math friends, but it would be nice if my partner liked looking at the photo book of the adventure with me.
