If I reach out to you, it's because there is something in your profile that intrigues me. I probably also think you're cute or hot, but it's your interests and our mutual compatibility (by OKCupid's measurements) that prompted me to contact you. Romance isn't the only reason, I've reached out to people on here due entirely to mutual interests to discuss potential projects or just because they seemed like the kinds of people I'd hang out with if I lived in their area. I really like this site for all sorts of networking.
I am a sensualist. I find pleasure in many different things, including reaching goals. Some might call me a hedonist, though I wouldn't quite go that far. My philosophy is that life is full of tragedy no matter what one does, so enjoy what parts of it that one can. And share pleasure with others as well. There are many things that I have yet to try, simply because there are so many things to do. A lot of them I don't even know exist, but I am eager to discover them. Some people fear the unknown unknowns, but I welcome surprises from life.
Oh yeah, and I'm a geek. Examples are a couple of entries down. But for those who are not geeks, I clean up well :)
