I'm not one for crowds, and would much rather spend time having a good dinner with a small group of friends than checking out latest busy club.
I can be shy in new situations, but it doesn't take too long for the opinions and the sarcasm to come out.
I'm more of a pessimist than an optimist, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the smaller pleasures of life, like basking in the park on a beautiful day.
I'm also really into stand up comedy, and would love to have someone to go to shows with. (Louis CK, Patton Oswalt, Dylan Moran and Tim Minchin are a few of my current favorites)
I listen to a lot of podcasts to get through the work day. Like WTF? TOFOP? I Love Green Guide Letters? Aware of The Little Dum Dum Club? Hit me up and let's chat.
Rationality matters to me. I devour sci-fi/fantasy/horror fiction, but fiction is where that stuff strictly stays. I'm very much a skeptic. Pseudoscience is an active harm upon the world and gets in the way of real scientific progress.
Empathy. I'm always there for people when they need me. I'm a good shoulder to cry on.
Recommending books/tv/movies. A bit weird to put this on the list, maybe. But I get great pleasure out of turning my friends and family on to things that I know they'll love.
My passion for the things I care about.
My (embarrassingly) loud laugh.

Politics (I'm very much a liberal, from a family of people who are very much liberal). I majored in Political Science in college, and loved debating anything and everything in the political realm.
Movies/books/tv/comics/other geeky thing. I love to think/talk about the pop culture stuff I'm into. I could spend hours talking about the finer points of Deadwood or Reservoir Dogs. And as much as I should be embarrassed to admit it, I have given more than a little consideration to who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman.
It's not that I don't ever enjoy doing anything super-social, I'm just typically a more low-key kind of gal.
Yeah, I collect action figures from various shows/movies/comics that I love.
If that amount of geekiness scares you off (which is fair enough) it's probably better to find that out now.
You're willing to spend time debating the finer points of the inner workings of the Star Wars universe.
