My self-summary
Brilliant, old-fashioned oddball seeks partner to share effervescent conversations comprised chiefly of tangents, dinner dates, and eventually more.

I'm whimsical and clever, but may drive you crazy with my pedantry. I am loving, but inscrutable; gentlemanly and witty, but initially reserved. I am clearly an anachronism in most respects, though opinions differ on whether I am currently residing in the wrong century or merely the wrong decade. Those who enjoy enigmata in another person often find the invariably fruitless journey to reverse-engineer my psyche fascinating.

I used to be uninterested in travel, but over the last few years I have fallen in love with Europe. England, Scotland, Wales, and Italy have been my significant destinations so far, and I am always interested in revisiting these countries or experiencing new ones.

I am an incorrigible cuddler; in a relationship, I adore spending time with my girlfriend, though after a while I tend to need a little time to myself. My natural tendency is to be extraordinarily affectionate in general and passionate in private.

My curiosity is natural and pervasive; if that trait is mirrored in someone else, then we are likely to become close.

I am far too cognizant of my excessive use of the personal pronoun in this section, especially in too many trite subject-verb constructions. Does anyone else think about these things?
What I’m doing with my life
By day I run a manufacturing business while occasionally consulting as a systems architect and business analyst in Manhattan; by night, I roam the rooftops in my cape and cowl seeking the evil minions of Nietzsche the 'Nihilator's amoral criminal syndicate.

Sometimes, between moonlit pursuits, I visit this site in my search for someone whose company I enjoy (and who enjoys mine). This is difficult, as most women are not looking for someone like me whatsoever, and I am rather set against constructing a misleading façade for the purposes of meeting people (even one crafted only from omission). In a world of casual communications, I still compose missives uninfluenced by the vernacular, and chafe under the unaccustomed yoke of modern English's brevity.
I’m really good at
. . . staying up far too late; splitting infinitives; maintaining a gentlemanly demeanor in a world that is quickly outmoding my already antiquated sensibilities; going prematurely grey; an unholy union of gravitas and irreverence; unnaturally mixing iambic trimeter and iambic tetrameter in poetry as a calculated affront to nature; abusing semicolons; surrounding myself with Victorian furniture, antique books, and rotary phones; dividing by zero.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Goodness, look at that! An errant time traveller has set down in our temporal era!"

I'm also often accused of being British, since apparently I closely fit the conception of what British people should look like. This belief is not dispelled when I speak, since I grew up reading far too much Victorian literature. People have trouble placing my accent, which is a bit odd considering I am not from somewhere else.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If it weren't for the occasional profile that also admits this, I would feel like I am the only person who reads every other section and only skims this one. I've never understood how I am supposed to intuit much about others as people through an exhaustive catalogue of their favorite bands (which seems to be what this section most commonly devolves into).

I read science fiction and satirical fantasy for pleasure (especially Terry Pratchet's works), but pepper this with a steady stream of the classics. The Great Gatsby, Catch-22, the Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, and various works by Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel Taylor Coleridge have all been of interest to me. Lately, I have been braving the prolix prose of H. P. Lovecraft and (trebly so) of Mervin Peake.

In movies, I prefer the quirky, wistful, and dramatically scientific. I like "Time Bandits" and "Brazil," "Steamboy," "Toys," "The Princess Bride," and the Claymation "The Adventures of Mark Twain." "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" was enthralling, and while the movie was not particularly special the settings for "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" tickled my æsthetics.

I'm not sure whether shows refer to the theater or to television. My sister directs plays fairly frequently, so I most often view whichever work she is putting together. My television is from 1954, so by the time I get around to powering it up on a Variac it will probably need some new vacuum tubes. As you might surmise, I don't watch much television.

In terms of music, I enjoy Alabama 3, Kaizers Orchestra, and (lately) Ludo. More generally, classic rock and classical music interest me if a piece in either genre is scored in a dramatic or melancholy minor key. I may be having a secret affair with the soundtrack to the Broadway musical The Secret Garden.

The likelihood of me enjoying a culinary dish varies inversely with how healthy it is.
The six things I could never do without
I have noticed a bizarre prevalence of chapstick on this list in women's profiles. My list includes no lip care products:

- The company of my close friends

- My latest intellectual obsession of the day

- Gratuitous amounts of affection--given and received

- Mad science

- More bookshelves

- The past (I live for old objects, old ideas, old fashions, et cetera ad infinitum.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Much of my thoughts revolve around my future, how I will find lasting happiness, and how I can practically pursue my interest in Gothic, Beaux-Arts, and Victorian architecture. Sometimes I busy my mind with designing an astonishing array of new methods for generating electricity through renewable means, submarines, orreries, and other overcomplicated devices. Sometimes I wonder if my life would be improved if I had a parrot, but considering how long they live that is virtually a lifelong commitment.
On a typical Friday night I am
I can often be found out at dinner on Fridays, since most of my social life is conducted thus. I might be lurking at an antiques auction, if there is one nearby with any lots that have caught my magpie's eye.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I visited Vermont recently, and Nature and I are now on speaking terms again. But the next time I find a bug in my shoe, I swear I'm calling it quits!

You should message me if
You should message me if you are looking for a whimsical and sarcastic intellectual: one who is a bottomless font of affection and passion when it is reciprocated. If you like your men overdressed and understated, polite, charming, honest, anachronistic, and individual.

It might be a good idea to message me in the event that a significant proportion of the following traits describes you: you are either an intellectual or a vibrant conversationalist, have an affinity for the antiquated (but a modern and very adventurous sense of the prurient, wink wink!), think mad science is spiffy, think real science is spiffy, are a closet logical positivist, scoff at anything to do with Postmodernism and Deconstructivism (or, if not, want to win me over to your dark and unholy æsthetics through argument), or want company on your walks through the city.
