Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
NOTE: I'm currently in Ithaca until the end of May. I'm not
really looking to date, but I'm looking for friends of all genders
and orientations. If I seem like someone you'd like to know, then
by all means, reach out!
I'm a geek, an atheist, and a skeptic. I do read books and don't
watch sports. I like math and weird, avant-garde music. I’m very
tactile and kinesthetic. I’m an introvert, but not a loner - on the
contrary, to me happiness stems not so much from what I do as who I
do it with. Shared experiences are what give life meaning.
I practice ethical non-monogamy, which to me means building
relationships on love, respect, and trust, but not on exclusivity.
I suppose I'm generally considered straight-ish and male-ish,
except probably by straight males. (I don't really know to describe
my orientation - I guess I'm generally less attracted to anyone
who's too cis-normative, especially on the male end of the
spectrum.) I'm skeptical of anyone who has never felt the need to
question the status quo.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After I burned out as a systems administrator, I went back to
school for massage therapy. It’s much more satisfying. Now that I
get to play with computers for fun instead of work, I enjoy them a
lot more. (Working as a sysadmin is kind of like being the goalie
on a soccer team... no matter how great you are you'll never get
the credit for winning the game for your team, but if your team
loses you know you'll take the blame!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like lots of different books, movies, music, and food. Also
podcasts, comics, games, and plays. I don't really have favorites,
because I like variety more than any one thing. I like indie flicks
and summer blockbusters; "serious" literature and mass-market
sci-fi. If the media I like have one thing in common, it’s that
they surprise me, often by making me laugh and/or think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Let’s be honest - online dating sucks. I don’t like spending hours
carefully composing intelligent-sounding messages to strangers who
probably aren’t interested, and I bet you don’t like wading through
an inbox of lazy, arrogant, entitled guys.
So, let's get offline as soon as possible. If we like each other's
profiles, let’s meet in person and see if we hit it off. An easy,
casual, low-pressure date to see if we want to get to know each
other. If you’d like that, send me a message. “Hi” is sufficient -
no need to be clever if you think your profile speaks for itself. I
promise I'll check it out!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are kind, sincere, caring, honest, and intellectually inclined.
Geeks and nerds turn me on. You like talking about big ideas like
politics and philosophy, even with someone who disagrees with you.
You like to be challenged and to step outside your comfort zone in
search of exciting new ideas and experiences. You don't smoke (at
least, not tobacco). You like to cook and would enjoy crafting
wonderful meals together. (Or even better - you don't like to cook,
and would rather just let me cook, and you'll clean up afterwards!)
