For those who ask "why are you not A-list?", I'm only looking for a dinner/drinking buddy. To that end, I'm very direct probably proposing a meeting in the initial message. If you get to know me, you'll find me to be a multi-faceted, dynamic, generous, straightforward, human being.
How I read your profile
I'm a big believer in psychological projection theory. So, I have a tendency to attribute what you say you don't want to what you actually want. So, for all of you who say "not looking for a fuck buddy" or "looking for a long term relationship", guess what? You're going to have to prove me wrong. And that shouldn't scare you off, it should motivate you. As an academically-inclined individual, I'm very open to being convinced my ideas are piffle and yours are better after all.
What I'm Looking For
I tend to spend a lot of time on here looking for people to type to. If/when you respond, we will see where things lead. So, don't be a stranger and just drop by the profile and leave (you know who you are)
For example, I'm working on a rating service for drivers -- http://rating.d8u.us -- do rate the next driver who annoys you on our motorways instead of going into road rage. Let's make our lives calmer and shame our fellow motorway users into driving better.
I refused to be on the first SpaceX flight to Mars. So, I'm stuck here on Earth.
But, more important from a relationship context, I was born with high-functioning autism (aspergers' syndrome). This means I don't pick up on body language as well as most people (yes, even most men are better than I) and the logical part of my brain reigns supreme. This is not because I don't have feelings -- as I clearly do. Rather, I simply do not recognize it in others. When we're together, whether on our 15th or first date, please understand that it isn't me CHOOSING to ignore your feelings; it's that they don't get picked up in the first place.
