Some people really don't seem to get my sense of humour, which isn't hugely surprising as it's often kinda strange and random. I'm shy, and sometimes a bit withdrawn, but I care about people a lot, and try to help others when I can. I also tend to open up and let my guard down more the more I get to know a person. Despite being very into science, I'm not dismissive of the idea of things science so far cannot explain, such as things referred to as "the supernatural", in fact I've had some really weird "inexplicable" things happen in my life that I can't just dismiss. I have a mild phobia of cathode ray tubes, because of an old TV half-electrocuting me when I was 12, and I'm terrified of wasps, because they're evil little flying harbingers of doom and stingy pain.
I don't believe in a lot of the crap that a significant proportion of society seems to adhere to, such as my appearance being judged by how much I'm dressing in the latest fashions, or the silly idea that girls should be anorexically thin to be attractive - curves are hot! Traits I find attractive in other people are intelligence, an open mind and willingness to think for themselves, honesty, and a caring, compassionate nature. Geekiness earns you extra points! Alternative ways of earning extra points include making me cups of tea :)
I am shy, geeky, and caring
