I'm passionate about ideas. I want to meet someone who doesn't think of intellectual issues as idle curiosities to be dropped for "practical" concerns. If you feel compelled to know the deepest truth about any issue you deal with, then I want to meet you.
I'm looking for someone independent and active-minded. It's easy to find people who aren't obviously influenced by peer pressure, but it's a lot harder to find people who take control of their own lives and act conscientiously and purposefully. If you live your life deliberately, and just drifting along sounds horrible to you, then I want to meet you. If you think life is the most dramatic, romantic thing there is, then maybe we should live it together.
I'm childishly benevolent and dauntlessly optimistic.
I love to talk about ideas anywhere, anytime, with anyone honest. I can't overstate this. I'm the reincarnation of Socrates, and I'm looking for the female equivalent, preferably without the pug nose (maybe it could be cute, though). You have to love to talk about important things, or at least love to listen to someone else talk about them.
I prefer the intimacy of one-on-one or small groups for my own relationships, but I love to be around bustling crowds. It's a real pleasure to see so many people interacting in selfish harmony.
Romantically, I'm looking for a woman who shares my attitude toward life and view of the world. I don't want a genderless "partnership." I want a princess who feels she can always look to me for support.
I've worked in fast food, internet analysis (the human side of making sure that Google displays what you're looking for when you search for something), loss prevention (catching shoplifters), crowd management (dealing with problems at sporting events and concerts), and food delivery.
Now I'm a philosopher. I teach philosophy through my podcast and tutoring, and will eventually teach through the courses and books I'm writing. I'm doing all of this outside of academia, because it's impossible to be happy in the university system. The value I offer outweighs my lack of useless credentials in the mind of anyone I care about teaching.
