My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a descriptivist pedant, gentle by preference, talkative, honest, and smart; I enjoy well-picked words, genuine smiles, healthy boundaries, and people who are also into those things. I'm a geek in the "curiosity and technical aptitude" sense, but not really in the "gaming and sci-fi" sense (although I do enjoy watching other people play video games). I feel best when I'm creating things, organizing things, or spending high-quality downtime with people I trust. I'm an unapologetic homebody, but not opposed to a well-chosen adventure.

My favorite kind of dating is low-key but intentional. It tends to feature chatty coffee dates, affectionate text messages, and shamelessly making out in public. Later on, it might look like sitting around enjoying each other's company while doing separate things, or excited conversations that last longer than we should have been awake. I like being direct about what I want and encourage my partners to do the same.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying for a bachelor's in applied linguistics with a minor in computer science, working in PSU's engineering college's volunteer IT department, and running the campus Magic: the Gathering club. (Okay, I do have my one typical geek game.) I try to squeeze homework and laundry in there, with mixed success.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Appreciating silly things and mundane ones. Explaining patiently. Languages (natural and programming). Taking things in stride. Expressing affection. Public speaking. Playing Tetris. Writing lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a bunch of facial piercings, I smile a lot, and I talk too fast. Especially when I'm meeting someone interesting for the first time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The fact that I almost never watch TV or movies when left to my own devices is probably more useful information than what the exceptions are. (I don't object to them, I just seem to prefer either doing something more interactive or nothing at all.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Strong human connections.
Adequate sleep.
Crunchy snacks.
A way to be useful.
Double articulation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People who are nearby, and people I care about who aren't nearby. Syntax and etymology. Conversations I either just had or am about to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Leading a work meeting, then attending a lecture on some devops-or-tangentially-related topic. Understanding parts of it, not understanding others, and chattering about it in a backchannel with other audience members.

Friday nights are not good date nights for me. How about Saturday?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a strong need for close social contact, and am also really choosy about who I open up to. The combination is frustrating.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
We seem to have similar values. (That doesn't mean similar personalities. I'd rather have someone who complements me than matches me.)
You respect other people, me, and yourself.
Hanging out somewhere quiet with a handful of high-quality nerds, bullshitting and optionally drinking, sounds like your idea of a good time.
