My mind is that of a scientist, but have the heart of a romantic, I care more about others than I do myself, and am always looking to improve myself - with a current emphasis on being more outgoing and witty.
Education wise, I have a Physics degree (which started out as a Physics Education degree), have had a taste of grad school, and may go back for some more - though it may not be physics related.
I am a strong proponent of people taking mental health seriously. The general social stigma that is often associated with it makes me ashamed to be a human being. Your brainmeat is just as important as your body!...meat.
I have a lazy corgi dog named Butter. She is adorable.
I've seen this on more than a couple profiles, so here's mine: INTJ
Also: Skip down to "The first things people notice about me" section. I've never liked any real details in that section, so I wrote a description instead.
Take that OkCupid layout.
I'm currently working a decent computer based job. It's cushy and relatively low-stress, which is nice while I organize other elements of my life [like a relationship ;)].
Every now and then I help out some of the local gaming shops, organizing and judging tournaments.
As for the future, I used to be a high school teacher, and am toying around with the idea of going back to that, doing something in the sciences, or seeing where my current job takes me.
... And hopefully not as annoying.
Books: My favorite author is H.P. Lovecraft - but to be honest most of my reading is limited to daily articles and forums (i.e. Reddit).

Food: Really just about anything that has been seasoned well - although I have been eating healthier and losing weight, so maybe not quite anything after all. As long as it's not a recipe Paula Deen would make, we should be good. Pasta and seafood stand out at the top of the list though.
A pet - I love animals, and couldn't imagine living without one.
The Internet - The best series of tubes ever created.
Someone to talk to and have human contact with - This is where you come in :)
I occasionally thank gravity for existing.
I own a rubber band ball the size of a bowling ball.
I like to think of myself as a gentleman - Ladies first. (if you don't get it immediately, re-read the title of this section)
I'm like a piñata, strike up a conversation to crack me open more tasty secret nuggets will fall out.
Also, if you read this whooole thing without skipping to the end. This profile is a beast!
Seriously though, go for it!
