I am an INTP 5w4, if you know the MBTI and Enneagram. For those of you who just went, "What the heck?!?", I am an introverted, self-proclaimed brainiac (rather say I love learning than say I am smart... arse). I like to observe people, things, and events without participating and build... abstract... things. Hence my interest in programming and other nerdy behavior. So if the quiet nerd isn't your type, move on, I'm not for you!
Here is some generic info on being an INTP for those interested: http://www.mypersonality.info/personality-types/intp/
I am always reading something, and once I got a Kindle, I may never catch up! Unless you include chess or poker, I am not into much sports. Though I would like to get more involved in outdoor activities, particularly hiking or just walking around Washington Park, unless its cold.
And yes, I am single (unless that above changes to something else). I am one who tends to get stuck in the "lets just be friends" and, for me, I don't really mind. And here is a case of this.

Scratch that. Now I am working for a Medicare accounting firm since late 2015, and now using my programming knowledge for once.
Books: Got way too many, especially with a Kindle. I have read everything from non-fiction to graphic novels! Harry Turtledove was a favorite author of mine. Read all but the last book of A Song of Ice and Fire and just never got to the last one. Actually completed both GEB and Tocqueville's Democracy in America after multiple attempts. Read several of Asimov's books, adore the Temeraire series, liked Atlas Shrugged but could not finish Fountainhead, read Frederick Douglass autobiography and (just before that) Harriet Jacobs, and a whole freak load of half-read books I don't want to list!
Edit: Recently gobbled up The Golden Age (Ocumene) Trilogy. Very teeth shattering, CRUNCHY hard sci-fi, but was one of the best books I've ever read.
Movies: Most are Psychological horror/thrillers, even if the quality is pathetic, and only when alone, movies that are emotionally DAMAGING! Requiem For A Dream comes to mind. Others include: In The Mouth of Madness, Crazy as Hell (a pathetic one), Mothman Prophecies, Deceiver, One Hour Photo, Below, Spider, and Jericho Mansions. My all time favorites though is The Prestige, The Fountain, Narnia: LWW, Network (which should be seen by all), and Luther. I also like comedies that move fast and confusing (Oscar, Clue).
Also, for both books and movies, anything with minimal sci-fi/fantasy along with Steampunk. But why 'punk' instead of 'pulp'?
Music: Oldies, mix-genre, depressing songs that are not sad, and story like songs count for most of them. But I like songs from every genre. Very hit-and-miss. With the exception of E Nomine (Latin choir based in Germany with lyrics involving good and evil) and Two Steps From Hell (does music trailers and other epic sounding music), I don't really have a favorite band or single artist. Some favorites: Ode to Billie Joe, Melancholy Man, And When I Die, Civ IV's Baba Yetu, Come Sail Away, and Death is the Road to Awe from The Fountain.
Foods: All of them, thanks!
And about religion, if you are a Christian with an hour to kill, watch this. If you don't agree with him, we are not compatible. That simple.
And what's wrong with finding a message from someone with a high Enemy score? That might be kinda neat! "Hello, I am your scientific dating match polar opposite!"
Anywho, for dating/relationship purposes, I am looking for a non-smoker who is hopefully an NF according to the MBTI. If you have no idea what that means, they tend to be empathetic, full of heart, idealistic, altruistic, and intuitive. But let it be known I tend to friendzone INFPs real fast and have yet to meet an ENFJ or INFJ who is both single and local. Which is REALLY HARD apparently. Here is some more info on NFs: http://www.mypersonality.info/personality-types/nf-temperament/
I do enjoy talking about love, relationships, and (decently) sex. Think When Harry Met Sally before they blew it. If you're looking for something more, here is your warning: I am a slow, friendship-first type of a person! So if you are looking for an intimate encounter, go elsewhere. I need bucket-loads of mental intimacy before becoming physical, and you should realize that cuddling is where I draw the line. (I really desire a cuddle buddy, not a f-buddy!) I also like those who like both teaching and learning; nerdy (love learning) but not necessarily geeky (one who engross herself in one thing).
Here is a video of a woman I find attractive. And I don't mean looks! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YRolrLrtOM
