Self-absorbed. Opinionated. Patient. Quirky.
"...living in a den of thieves. Rummaging for answers in the pages"
( this feels a bit like filling out a job application. If I see something like "What additional skill sets will you bring to this relationship?" I think I'll just end this experiment) ...and probably turning off any woman reading all of this.
And I'm gonna go ahead and say Catcher (but not in a creepy serial killy kind of way. no. no.)

I enjoy plays more than musicals. I'd love to catch something by Mamet. Currently have plans to finally see Lion King. Clybourne Park was enjoyable. Book Of Mormon is high on the to do list ...Higher is Virginia Wolf.
Still upset I missed Alan Cumming in Cabaret.

My position on issues.
short term and long term Goals.
Reconciling my spiritual side with my scientific side.
..and Probably over thinking any single thing that enters my mind at the moment.
Well, that sounds Like a cop out...
This strikes me as the part of the job interview where they ask "What would you say is your biggest short coming?"
and I answer "Constantly upsetting my bosses greatest expectations by gratuitously exceeding them with uncanny regularity. I just can't help it! If only I could stop out-shining co-workers with such panache! GOD!"
But I won't do that.
This is an opportunity to really play with the limits of TMI...
To really get as close to sabotaging myself as possible.
hmmm. I'll say...
1) I wet the bed until I was 7.
2)I think body hair(regarding the usually shaved places) on a woman is kind of sexy as long as it doesn't far exceed that which I can produce as an adult man.
-You and I match over 80%
-You don't mind simply remaining friends.
-You believe a few weeks of casual emailing is a good and trusty safeguard before advancing another step--so to easily keep a steady finger on that "Eject Button". NO need to shortcut or underestimate a hearty vetting process.
