My self-summary
ya know, after 6 months of trying out this site, I think I have almost narrowed down the things that women are, and are not looking for... at least on OKC. I'm going to list this in the simplest form possible.

1. I do not spend multiple hours a day playing video games
2. I am employed
3. I own my own car
4. I am not a felon
5. I live alone, in an apartment, and my rent is never late
6. I have all my own hair.
7. I have a college degree
8. I use proper grammar, including a comprehensive knowledge of the difference between their, they're, and there.
9. I have never cheated on anyone.
10. I'm not fat
11. My pictures are actually me
11a. I've never taken a shirtless selfie in a bathroom
12. When I say I'll be somewhere for a date, I'll be there every time.
13. I do not have a secret wife
14. I am not looking for a one night stand
15. I'm perfectly fine dating someone with a child
16. I'd prefer to get to know someone face to face rather than spend a week talking online

If I missed something important here, message me so I can add it
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Grad student in Clinical Mental Health psychology at TxState, working to become a trauma counselor for children and teens who have experienced abuse, neglect, severe injury, or other life changing traumas. It's a hard job, but having met some of these kids, I know exactly how badly they need a compassionate person to be there for them.

I am very dedicated to my future, and hope to find someone who is equally dedicated to their own

I'm also a member of Counselors for Social Justice, and i have absolutely zero tolerance for any form of bigotry or intolerance
I’m really good at
I want ALL the knowledge...

I read constantly, and absolutely love to learn.

I'm quite good at chess, scrabble and monopoly (in that order)

I love italian food, and make the best fettuccine alfredo you will ever eat (yes i make my own pasta)

My interests are eclectic... Politics, history, science, philosophy, psychology. If I don't know it, I want to.

Living in the woods with nothing but what i can carry on my back

Zombies... killing them... i think i was born to
The first things people usually notice about me
I look at least 5 years younger than i am. This, i will call a win.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Wheel of time, Atlas Shrugged, World War Z, The Republic, The Prince, Thus Spake Zarathustra, anything by David Eddings, Being and Time, 1984, Brave New World, Vampire Chronicles, Star Wars, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Wheel of Time (that's right it's here twice. It's that good), Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The Prophet (Khalil Gibran), Hunger Games ... I read more than I movie... i do love Pulp Fiction though

Tv: The Walking Dead, True Blood, 24, SOA, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Weeds, Star Trek (all of em), Battlestar Galactica, Nikita, Doctor Who, Being Human, Spartacus, Arrow, Arrested Development
The six things I could never do without
Internet
My Kindle
New experiences
Good wine
Alone time

* I could do without all that crap, but i really don't wanna*
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, pscyhology, physics, and the melting point of strawberry jello at high pressure
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably dancing somewhere or reading a book in the hot tub
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I plan to live forever.... no that's not a joke
You should message me if
Okay here's what i'm looking for.

An intelligent, emotionally mature, socially liberal, preferably nerdy, woman who is ready for a real relationship, and loves exploring the strange and new. Yes, that's asking a lot, but why not aim for the stars.

If you love good wine and microbrew beer, we will probably like each other

Can you imagine living forever and NEVER getting bored?

If you want to go skydiving, and you want to meet someone to go with you, I'm in!

It would be great to meet someone to explore Austin with. I am relatively new to the area, so if you want to show me all the best things in this awesome city, message me

I am not interested in dating strongly religious people. I don't mind if you believe in god, but if it's the central focus of your life, it will be hard to make things work

Commitment, loyalty, honesty, integrity... these are ALL more important to me than how you look. Physical attraction is important but without these qualities, it's meaningless.

Bonus points if you can postulate a plausible solution to the Fermi Paradox
