My self-summary
Socially-awkward computer geek with cat allergies seeks human female counterpart. Values honesty, intelligence, imagination, and lack of homicidal tendencies. Conversation with non-counterpart candidates welcome. Serious inquiries welcome. Non-serious inquiries may effect reciprocation.

Extraterrestrial females and sentient artificial intelligences are welcome to apply, but must not be put off by astonishment and endless questions.
What I’m doing with my life
As the estimated time of completion for my android girlfriend appears to be well into my declining years, I am forced to consider human companionship a viable option.

I am a software developer by trade, and an author of fantasy novels whenever the urge takes me. I have varied interests, and attempt to pursue them as I have time, inclination, and opportunity.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at listing things that I'm moderately good at and/or interested in learning more about in boxes designated for things I'm really good at. Example:

Software design and development
Database work
Writing (novels, poetry)
Music composition
Distinguishing spellings and meanings among homophones (A good many people on here seem to find that particular skill to be a matter of grave concern, for some reason.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My computers. I have three desktops on a KVM switch. Obviously everyone would notice that first, right? I mean, one of them even has some very sexy graphics cards, and two of them run Linux! (Three, if you count the VM that runs my PostgreSQL database!)

Lately, it seems people have been noticing that my books are available on Kindle. That makes me happy. :)

I have a new one too, that ought to be coming out before too long.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Wheel of Time, by Robert Jordan; The Kingkiller Chronicle, by Patrick Rothfuss; All of the Riyria novels by Michael J. Sullivan; Lorien Legacies; several different things by Terry Brooks, David Eddings, and Raymond Fiest; The Dark Angel Chronicles, The Dragon Mage Chronicles, and Prophecy of the Ancients (I'm a little biased on those...)

Movies: Pretty much all of the Marvel movies, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, The Fifth Element, Pirates of the Caribbean, Meet Me in St. Louis, X-Men (all), Maleficent, and too many more to list! Honestly, I like most anything with a compelling story, and I tend to care more about said story than I do about which actors are in it.

TV Shows: The Flash, Arrow, Doctor Who, BBC's Sherlock, Lucifer, Game of Thrones, iZombie, The Big Bang Theory, Castle, Firefly, Grimm, How I Met Your Mother, Leverage, The IT Crowd, and a few more.

Music: Mozart, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Evanescence, Jonathan Coulton, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Connie Talbot, far too many more to list.

Food: Pizza, enchiladas, pizza, lasagna, pizza, spaghetti, pizza, chicken strips, pizza, celery, pizza, raw carrots, pizza, blueberries, pizza, cantelope... did I mention pizza?
The six things I could never do without
- My mind (losing that would potentially render me incapable of appreciating the rest)
- My family
- My computers
- My Android-based phone
- Intellectual stimulation
- Good tea
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to travel forward in time, steal the android girlfriend from my future self after she is finished, and take her back to the present. I've got it all worked out except for how to get her back to the present... Ideas are welcome.

I'm confused by the people who live 10-15 minutes from me by train, and yet seem to be under the impression that I'm thousands of miles away, because I'm technically not "in the city".

In truth, I spend a good deal of time thinking about pretty much everything I encounter, and some things I've yet to encounter. I may or may not remember what I thought about any given item; I have a selective memory, and I'm not the one doing the selecting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Amused. Probably at home in front of my computer too. Hence the profile.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am looking for something real; imaginary things have an annoying tendency to not exist.

Also, I'm secretly laughing at all the profiles containing the so-common-it's-cliché cop-out answer that if they said anything, it would no longer be private.
You should message me if

I respond to all messages I receive, even the ones barely worthy of the name. If all you say is "Hi" though, you'll probably only get a "Hello" in response.

Oh yes, and in case you didn't read my summary, I am allergic to cats. If that is a problem, I'm sorry, but allergy meds really don't help. Please note that Egyptian Sphynx cats are fine; I'm not allergic to those.
