My self-summary
QUICKMATCH NOTICE: My profile name is 'abitofwit' in case you want to drop me a message instead of just a like.

Can you summarize a sunrise,
or quantify a dream?
Explaining what lies behind these eyes
is a snapshot of a flowing stream.

I embody a mix of traits which may initially seem contradictory, but it all makes sense once you know the detailed nuance of my thought processes. I try to be frugal, generous, playful, and sincere. I appreciate the temporary nature of existence, the infinite expanse of the mind, and the irony of culture being the process by which those truths are rebuked. I'm a geek in that I'm into the science, geometry, and philosophy of life and experiences - but my interests run the gamut from technology and gaming to the outdoors and building/repairing things. I'll arm wrestle someone and during the match explain to them the principles of leverage I'm using to exhaust their ATP stores. I love to fish because I understand how the mind of a fish processes information and therefore am great at hunting them. It's second nature for me to know how systems operate and improve efficiency.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm looking for the inspiration for my next quest. I was one of those kids who knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I tried it and loved it, but some adventures simply run their course and then it's time to move on to something else. My range of interests is diverse to say the least, so at the moment I'm simply trying to survive the time spent between chasing dreams :)
I’m really good at
That which I set my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me
My presence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I cook basically all my own meals so my favorite foods are alternatively something I make with/for someone else, or a meal I didn't have to make.

I'm more into active & interactive entertainment than passive, though I have a profound appreciation for not being bored regardless of how. My favorite films are those which distract me from the thoughts of what else I could be doing.

Dense crowds of people put me into danger awareness mode so hanging out up front of large live shows is generally out, although I know a fair amount of musicians and love listening to friends jam. Less-crowded venues are great.

I enjoy a very wide range of music from classical to electronica, punk to Hmong traditional. You'd have to ask me what some of my favorites are in a specific genre for me to really narrow it down to anything approaching practical to communicate.

My favorite book, hands down, is Richard Bach's "Illusions"
The six things I could never do without
Humor
Freedom*
Curiosity
Insight
Determination
Love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How eloquently stated. It's a shame okcupid forgot a period at the end.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being a boring person. I'm not into hanging out among large groups of people and I work at 6AM on Saturday. Usually I'll hit the gym, make dinner, and horse around on the internet before going to bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm quite a pervert, but I know better than to express it to people who haven't shown an interest.
You should message me if
You're honest. I don't want to waste my time dealing with a false front while someone tries to hide their shit side. You should prefer to be rejected for who you are rather than strive to be accepted for who you're not. You don't need a personality that's loud or extreme or in-your-face... but you shouldn't be ashamed of yourself. Go ahead, lead with that potentially dealbreaking information. Worst case scenario is that it makes the search for compatible partners easier for everyone ;P

You're not riddled with self-resentment. I find a strong self-awareness to be an attractive trait, but if you're going to constantly evaluate yourself I really prefer a person who draws mostly positive conclusions.

You're about being strong. When people I care about get down in the dumps I remind them that they're awesome and being a sadsack is a waste of time. And I need the same thing from the people I associate with when I get into my occasional funk. Not a shoulder to cry on... a helping hand to get up and running again.

You're an adventurous adventuress seeking an adventuresome adventurer, but more importantly you also appreciate the rest of the time. A ski trip to Utah or a spur-of-the-moment 2AM bike ride is great fun, but the fact of the matter is that it's just as important to be satisfied spending ordinary time together doing mundane things... because that's the majority of life.
