Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would love a serious and intimate relationship, but trying to
force that with strangers just doesn't work for me, so for right
now I'm just looking for someone to do things with and if things go
well hopefully things will evolve from there.
I have a long profile, so here's the study guide:
-My favorite section is the books, music and movies part. I'm
confused as to what couples are even supposed to do if they can't
geek out over the same stuff together.
-I'm a liberal, an atheist, and a feminist and these are all very
important to me, but I can accept anybody that can accept me.
-I seriously think Superman is a better character than Batman and
am prepared to defend my claim
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the middle of a two year grad program and riding the metra
downtown everyday to work in the loop. Waiting for the right
opportunity to move into the city.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Logic and puzzles
Reaching things on the top shelf
Picking things apart and reflecting on them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
-Currently reading a lot of Phillip K. Dick and exploring some
-Favorites include The Name of the Wind, Lois Lane: Fallout,
Redwall, Dino topic, Carl Sagan's "Demon Haunted World", the Kitchn
-There's certainly more to put down, but here's a good
representation of my taste in movies:
Hayao Miyazaki / Ghibli
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (my most recent favorite)
-I don't watch lot but when I do my tastes are typical nerd stuff:
Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Avatar, etc. Pretty much everything
you'd expect except Big Bang Theory and My Little Pony.
-Currently working through every incarnation of Star Trek on
Netflix (currently: Voyager)
- Weird and eclectic
- I recently started collecting Jazz records, half for the ironic
hipster cred, half because I don't understand the music at all
which is rare. I've actually developed a bit of a taste for it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
An occasional moment alone
My intelligence (for whatever it's worth)
The hope that humanity will eventually figure out how to live on
this planet without slowly killing ourselves in one way or
Nitrogen for keeping the atmosphere from igniting
New stories to experience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Meaning, and how to add it to my life.
-Where did bread first come from? Could it be the most meaningful
scientific achievement in human history?
-Words and where they came from and how they might be related to
other words. For example, is "fantastic" derived in some way from
"fantasy"? If so, that means I've been using it wrong all this
time! And what about "terrific" and "terrible"?
-Why doesn't anyone ever care to ask me my brilliant theories about
bread and words?
-Do aliens exist and does it really make any difference if they do?
We make way too many assumptions of what hypothetical aliens would
be capable of and then just assume they're out there because "space
is really really big". It's precisely because space is big and time
is vast that we need rethink our priorities as a species.
-Also, Mars is a terrible idea. I have another, better goal in mind
for humanity's next big space endeavor. I'm just waiting Neil
DeGrasse Tyson to return my calls.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
-Hanging out with friends, playing board games.
-Out to the movie theater when there's something worth
-Inside spending a comfortable night at home watching a favorite
movie/reading a favorite book/playing video games.
-Any/All of the above.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It's too much to hope for to think that you actually read
everything I wrote. Still, I hope you'll message me if you're
Especially if you think we could love the same obscure things
Or if you want to share the obscure things you like with me, and
you'll let me return the favor.
Or if the idea of staying in bed late on a weekend to watch
cartoons together appeals to you.
Also, it's easier for me to respond when messages say more than
just hello. I'm better at thinking of something to say when you
give me something to think about. It takes two to dialogue. (and
yes, dialogue is a verb; I checked)
