My self-summary
First and foremost, I'm a huge lit nerd. I have a particular fondness/weakness for Shakespeare and medieval/renaissance works in general. (Just in case you think this sounds all high-falutin and elitist, I'm convinced that Will, much as I love him, was essentially writing the crime dramas and reality tv shows of his day. For all the beautiful blank verse and wonderfully-developed characters, there's a lot of low-brow humor to be had in the bard's plays.)

I'm rarely without some type of reading material. I adore my Kindle for allowing me to carry an entire library with me, but ever so often I crave an ol' school printed, bound book. There's just something about the feeling of the pages in your hand that fills me with a sense of contentment. I'm a pretty slow reader, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a page I haven't marked in some way.

My geek-factor is sufficiently diversified that I can (and will) devour a video game or tv series that catches my fancy every bit a ravenously as a new novel. I like to think I have a good level of tech-savvy for a bookworm with no formal training. I've built computers from scratch, set up home networks, etc. (I will not, however, fix your computer, so please don't ask.)

I can be incredibly random, easily bouncing between a half-dozen topics during a typical conversation. I'm told I'm a good listener, but if I get on a subject that I feel passionately about I will probably talk your ear off.

I fancy myself a foodie, at least as much as time/money will allow. (Which is not much at the moment, unfortunately.) I'm a fan of the theatre as well, albeit with the same caveat.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm back in the real world after finally completing my BA in English. I recently finished a contract with a non-profit and am tutoring high school and college students struggling in English while I figure out my next move. I know I want go to grad school eventually. The only questions are when, where, and for what?
I’m really good at
Being considerate to others and helping my friends. Going on long, rambling tangents about topics that interest me and just generally nerding out.

Acquiring friends with a specific mutual interest that I don't share. For example, it got to the point in college that anyone I'd normally go see a student theatre production with was probably in said production. Yet, I've never been in a full-length play in my life. I also seem to be collecting an increasing number of friends into professional or amateur photography, even though I have absolutely no talent with a camera. I'm hoping this strange talent/gift/quirk/whatever will stand me in good stead for the coming zombie apocalypse.

The six things I could never do without
1. Friends
2. Family
3. iPhone
4. Something to read
5. Something to write with
6. Horrible, horrible puns
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to put in this section...
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm probably out with or visiting friends and family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You mean besides the incredibly dorky activity I admitted above?

I can't swim.

I never had braces as a child, even though I have pretty bad crowding. This doesn't mean my teeth are bad. In fact, they're in great shape. They could just be in there a lot straighter.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
We've got something in common.

You think we'd spark, as friends or more.

You enjoy long, rambling, nerdy conversations where neither party has any idea how we got from A to B. (Or rather A to Q to Pi to -4.)

You're an awesome person looking for another awesome person to be awesome together with.
