I'm a computer programmer in the Denver area. I enjoy traveling a great deal. A few years back I made it a goal to visit a new country each year. So far it's been England, Japan and Italy. China is on the slate for this year. I'm also working on visiting all 50 United States (although I can't imagine what I'd do in places like North Dakota or Iowa).
I used to do some stage acting back when I lived in Oklahoma City. I would love to do more of that, but I'm having a bit of trouble finding the right community theater in my area.
Movies are a passion of mine and will watch most any film that comes recommended to me. I enjoy critiquing them with others afterwards. I will admit my favorite movies are more of the "nerdy" persuasion, but I enjoy many more types. If I find a story lacking I like asking the question, "What would I do to fix it?"
Board gaming has become one of my interests. The Settlers of Catan and Risk are my favorites and I have a closet with a nice collection growing.
Quick paths into my heart would be quoting some nerd movie fluidly in conversation, beating (or nearly beating) me in a strategy board game, talking with me about ancient civilizations or being able to have a serious debate about who would win: Batman or the Terminator.

Do you love someone for liking the same movie you do or is it something more? Could you put up with the occasional bad song on your partner's playlist? Absolutely. (Although if you like Gangnam Style or Sexy and I Know it, you may as well continue profile searching right now). Sadly online dating seems predicated on matching people on those qualities because chemistry is a formula we haven't yet defined.
Sometimes someone special can open your eyes to what is good about their interests. I'm certainly open to exploring yours. But even if you don't like sci-fi and never will it doesn't mean we are completely incompatible. Like I said, chemistry is something we don't have well defined. Who knows what we could bond over or learn from each other?
What do you say we give each other a chance? This is only the gateway to facilitate an in-person meet anyway. That's where you get to determine if there's true attraction.
...then I read it. It sucked.
