My self-summary
Ayn Rand said that most people are incapable of taking anything seriously. I'm looking for someone who is capable. If you've ever felt that life is so important and so holy that you were going to burst, then we have a lot to share.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished a degree at the University of Georgia in political science and international affairs. I regret it, and wish I'd dropped out of high school at the earliest opportunity.

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.
I’m really good at
Organizing and communicating ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and my eyes. People touch my hair and ask if I'm wearing mascara. I take both of those as compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Novels: The Fountainhead and the rest of Ayn Rand's novels as great art, Frank Herbert's Dune novels as art, A Song of Ice and Fire as something else. Those are just examples in each category. I also like plays. Some of my favorites are An Enemy of the People, St. Joan, and Cyrano de Bergerac. I like some poetry too, but I'm not good at reading poems, so I only really like the ones I've heard read out loud. My favorite is "Columbus" by Joaquin Miller.

Movies: The José Ferrer version of Cyrano de Bergerac, The Fountainhead, The Dark Knight trilogy, the Rocky movies, the original Star Wars trilogy, most of the Marvel cinematic universe movies, the Back to the Future trilogy, The Matrix, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon.

Shows: Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Firefly, Dragon Ball Z, and any show on which Gavin McInnes appears.

Music: Bon Jovi above all else, but also a lot of 80s, Sam Cooke, Bobby Darin, Elton John, Regina Spektor, Lady Gaga. That's a random smattering of what immediately occurred to me at this moment.

Food: Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies and Pizza Hut deep dish pepperoni pizza. My favorite restaurant is On the Border.
Six things I could never do without
1. Pride (I mean more than thinking highly of myself. I mean feeling good about doing good. I wouldn't want to live if I couldn't feel that.)
2. Philosophy
3. Romance
4. Good food
5. Physical fitness
6. Video games
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I imagine I have an audience and then try to explain interesting ideas to them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, listening to a lecture, reading a book, playing a game, browsing the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't want to reveal anything private here.
You should message me if
