I am a forthright, thoughtful, articulate male human. Here are some specifics that you may generalize as you wish. I usually release spiders and insects into the wild if practical, but I will smash 'em if necessary. I tried to locate the owner of an expensive-looking bike I found once. (Five-O offered to take it off my hands so they could auction it if no one claimed it. Fuck that! They don't need my help to buy more riot gear. After three months I thought to sell it (it was too big for me), but it had been stolen from my back yard.) I smile at toddlers and stop to pet dogs on the street. Sometimes I'll pick up litter or cigarette butts and carry them until I find a trash can. I look things up all the time, then forget what I learned in a few months and look them up again. I'd like to say that eventually it sticks, but the jury's still out. I say "please" and "thank you" to wait staff.
If you're looking for some adjectives, my personality tab is accurate with these caveats: being drug-friendly doesn't make me a drug user (I rarely get high); I deserve higher scores for literary and political; I am extroverted when I want to be, but also need more than a little time alone.
Conversationally engaging and kind, I know the difference between a spirited discussion (fun!) and a fight (not!). My sense of humor leans more towards gentle irony and dry wit than biting sarcasm. On the subject of irony, it's great fun but sincerity should be in the mix, too.
"Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh, that purse is okay’, or like ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to LOVE stuff. Like, jump up and down in your chair, can’t control yourself LOVE IT. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.’" --John Green
People often say they don't know what to write here, but as you might have noticed I have the opposite problem. I'd much rather get someone talking about themselves than talk about me (or, ideally, you know, take turns), but that's not really an option for a profile, yeah? Mark Twain used to apologize for his letters, "sorry I did not have time to make this shorter." My messages are moderately longer than usual also, though I make attempts to trim the fat. (Writing is re-writing, as they say. Am I the only one who does a first and second draft of okcupid messages?) I miss the '90s when we communicated at a distance primarily by email. Now we have the immediacy of cell phones, but you don't exactly craft a conversation as you would a letter, and that's too bad. Can you imagine historians of the future using text messages as primary sources? Okay that quote up there? That was actually Blaise Pascal, I've found out. I'm leaving it as Twain because I like him better.
