My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty weird kid that learned how to fake being normal somehow and is still surprised at how often it works.

I don't think there's any inherent conflict between being a logical thinker and an emotional person. I'm pretty rational and have high emotional affect.

I've noticed that the high points in my day tend to be intense conversations with friends and colleagues, eating really good food after exercise, reading a book or article I know will be good, and sex, of course.

No matter how much I like to write shit on the internet, I can't help but think there's something a bit crass about asking me or someone else to describe themselves right off the bat. I'd rather sidle into it a bit. If we decide if it's less than unlikely that we'll end up spilling our guts to the blank and awkward apathy of someone who, we've all realized too late, could never be anything but a stranger, okay, fine, I'll spill my guts. Otherwise I when imagine you accidentally happening upon my soul here, it looks like one of those pale, half-dead worms you see on the sidewalk after it rains a lot, and raising a single justifiably skeptical eyebrow.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Nearly all of my favorite things. I work at a badass nonprofit in SF. I collect mushrooms in the woods. I cultivate a growing collection of exotic herbs. I eat a shitload of vegan hot pockets. I live with my best friend. I write some stuff on the internet, usually about mycology or pandemics or something else that's kinda creepy and kinda cool. I watch videos of hero dogs on the internet and cry about how beautiful and earnest and true they are.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
reading fast (like, really fast), having long conversations that actually go somewhere, cooking vegan quiche. Taking people more seriously than they take themselves. Eating my cuticles (those angles get rough, man). Playing the Devil's Advocate. Generally and genuinely giving a fuck about things (for those of you with no fucks left to give, I'm so sorry, dating must be very difficult).

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a pencil and paper, my lighter, my taser, and my ring. And everything they stand for.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Effective altruism and animal activism, climate engineering (women are underrepresented in the mad sciences, and I want to change that!), feral children, salvia, life in the past, life in the future...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
, I hope.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're into the concept of arete.

I'm dating some other people. Perhaps you are too. I will refrain from asking you to have a threesome with anyone as the price for getting to know me. I hope you extend the same courtesy.

You too can screw your courage to the sticking place, but prefer messaging cuties on the internet to regicide.

You'd like to recommend a book to me to maintain plausible deniability for wanting to ask me out while establishing contact. Or you'd actually like to recommend a book to me.
