My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a long profile, so here's the study guide:

-I'm convinced the best way to get to know me is through the books, music and movies section (It's also the part I want to know most about you, so the more you write there, the better). I hope you'll contact me if we've got similar tastes. I'm confused as to what couples are even supposed to do if they can't geek out over the same stuff together.

-INTJ

-I prefer to be upfront about things when dealing with people. Subterfuge and social situations rarely mix.

-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.

-Sports are not my thing and never will be. I sit down to watch them only for championships.

-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.
Going through grad school.
Working a new job at a non-profit in the city and looking forward to the day I'll get to move there.
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.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
-I read books. I don't finish them in a week usually, but I definitely read them at my own pace. I enjoy fiction, science-fiction, and sometimes just science. And fantasy.

-Generally science-fiction > fantasy for me, but I'll always have a soft spot for Patrick Rothfuss, Brian Jaques and J.R.R. Tolkien (and C.S. Lewis and J.M. Barrie)

-Currently reading a lot of Phillip K. Dick and some other authors as part of "Sci-Fi Masterworks" collection.

Movies:
-I'm more into movies than most. If a movie has a reputation for being good, I'm interested in seeing it. I love almost genres of film: New, old, animated, foreign. All of it.

-There's certainly more to put down, but here's a good representation of my taste in movies:
Citizen Kane
Ghostbusters
Wes Anderson
Hayao Miyazaki / Ghibli
Disney
Pixar
Avengers

-Also, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is my most recent Netflix discovery. It is brilliant. I was deathly afraid of it as a kid, but as an adult I can recognize it for its genius. Still deathly afraid of it though. Also, the internet seems to have completely missed the point of Jessica Rabbit.

Television:
-My tastes are typically 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)

Music:
- My music tastes are weird and unimportant, and I'm typically happy to relinquish control of the car stereo.
- Not country or rap
-A lot of my music doesn't have words, or if they do I don't care what they are
- Ask me if you care to know more
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music
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 another
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"?

Words man.

-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 seeing.
-Inside spending a comfortable night at home watching a favorite movie/reading a favorite book/playing video games.
-Any/All of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Why is this even here?
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 interested regardless.

Especially if you think we could love the same obscure things together.

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)
