I should also warn, that I rarely initiate a conversation on here; so feel free to take the first step and message me, or throw some yellow stars my way to let me know you are interested.
Anyway! Disclaimer aside and without further ado....
My friends describe me as a nice guy, which is usually the kiss of death when it comes to dating! I do not care ;) I try to always be a gentleman and aim to be a bit of a Renaissance man. I have a good sense of humor and often make jokes...but If you hate sarcasm or ball-breaking, you may dislike a few of them! I tend to joke and laugh a lot and can be a bit of a goofball when not in "work mode". I can also be a bit shy when it comes to dating, although never in general. I am half geek/nerd, half 'cool', and always smiling.
I love to work, and am very focused on my career. I love my job and my field, and am very passionate about politics and government. I have a secret passion for Near East/South Asian (AKA CENTCOM) international relations. My driving force and goal is to help as many people as possible and to enact legitimate positive change on the world. I suppose I am an idealist.
My interests are extremely broad and varied, but I will try to name a few of them. I enjoy hiking and the outdoors, but also enjoy curling up inside with a book or a good movie. I love all things science, space, and technology, and tend to geek out a bit over it. I am a bit of a foodie. I enjoy going out to the bar for a drink or two with friends, or the museum, as much as I like curling up next to the fireplace or TV with good wine and company. I love parties, but do not dance very well; men my size are not made for dancing. I am formerly an English major and retained the minor, so tend to get excited over oxford comma's and Shakespeare.
I dabble in geeky stuff like computers, video games, reading (alot) and literature of all types, especially classical, fantasy, scifi, and political; Geo-caching, writing, bowling, football, and theater/musicals. I love history, technology, and science (especially space), and have the bad habit of 'googling' anything I do not know the answer to. I'm totally open to new things, new hobbies, and new adventures. I want to travel everywhere some day, and have begun planning an extravagant future retirement. It's always good to have a goal at the end of the road to keep the sometimes crazy number of hours I work in perspective! I stick by my friends, and care for those around me. I am extremely loyal.
I am really looking for someone who can be a close friend and share my love for life. That person has to put up with my crazy work schedule and the large number of hours I work, and the fact that at this relatively early career stepping stone I do not make much money.I like cute, somewhat geeky girls who have a passion for life and a good heart :)
