I'm older than I look.
I just got glasses for reading and computers. I can now claim to be a real four-eyed nerd. I'm into science and science fiction, roleplaying games and photography.
While my profile says "single" that's not strictly accurate. I am in a long-term open relationship. I'll describe my family to you if you ask. I use "single" because OKC has no option for "In an open relationship", which is what I am on Facebook. "Married" is totally inaccurate, and "seeing someone" tends to imply that I'm not, uh... "available".
One more note about my nick. "Doctor" is not a protected term. I can call myself "doctor", you can call yourself "doctor" if you want, without any qualifications at all. I am not a real medical doctor, though I have an interest in most subjects and am good at research. Don't ask me about your medical conditions - ask a proper qualified physician.
Damn, some of these match questions are really awful. So many false dichotomies!
I'm good at a number of things, none of them especially practical. I can use a sword, play the guitar, take photographs, and I am cursed with a complete lack of fear of public speaking.
I've never asked.
Books - I like books, though currently with internets and good TV I don't read as much or as quickly as I used to. I read science fiction, fantasy and pop science.
Movies - I'm not much of a movie buff. I like escapism and fantasy. Not horror. Star Wars fan since childhood.
TV - Again, escapism and science fiction. Babylon 5, Warehouse 13, Primeval, Futurama, etc.
Music - Oh my. I started learning music at age 7, and though I don't currently play anything regularly, I still retain the love and appreciation of music that I grew up with. I don't so much like bands or artists or genres, I like individual songs. If it's musically interesting, I'll give it a go, regardless of what genre or category it gets shoehorned into.
Food - I am not a vegetarian, though I am quite fussy about the meat I'll eat. I will frequently order veg if I don't feel that I can trust the quality of the meat. Sometimes I'll order veg just because it looks good, and I don't realise until halfway through the meal that there's no meat.
I should also mention that I'm a fan of Dan Savage. If you don't know who that is, go look him up. He is one of the most excellent human beings on the planet.

My friends and family
A little escapism now and then
You'll notice that "casual sex" isn't in the "I'm looking for" section. That's not an oversight.
Oh, and I should mention that I used to have an account here under a different name. I deleted that account and started over. If you think I look familiar, that may be why.
