If I reach out to you, it's because there is something in your profile that intrigues me. I probably also think you're cute or hot, but it's your interests and our mutual compatibility (by OKCupid's measurements) that prompted me to contact you. Romance isn't the only reason, I've reached out to people on here due entirely to mutual interests to discuss potential projects or just because they seemed like the kinds of people I'd hang out with if I lived in their area. I really like this site for all sorts of networking.
I am a sensualist. I find pleasure in many different things, including reaching goals. Some might call me a hedonist, though I wouldn't quite go that far. My philosophy is that life is full of tragedy no matter what one does, so enjoy what parts of it that one can. And share pleasure with others as well. There are many things that I have yet to try, simply because there are so many things to do. A lot of them I don't even know exist, but I am eager to discover them. Some people fear the unknown unknowns, but I welcome surprises from life.
Oh yeah, and I'm a geek. Examples are a couple of entries down. But for those who are not geeks, I clean up well :)
Once I have established one or more projects as viable and income-earning, I plan on leaving professional driving. Driving is where I am today, it is not where I will be three years from now.
Nonfiction: Just Six Numbers: The Deep Forces That Shape the Universe by Martin Rees, Skull Wars by David Thomas, many many others.
Movies: Escapism. Stuff that goes boom. Horror flicks. Special effects extravaganzas. Also, subversive musicals like Rocky Horror and Repo. Anime galore.
TV: Discovery Channel/History Channel series mostly, other than football.
Music: Everything from Billy Joel to Bjork to Manowar to Lords of Acid (esp. their early stuff)
Food: Bland American palate, I'm afraid, though I still sample different cuisines and foodways in small quantities.
Sample of my geekiness:
Tabletop RPGs I've played and enjoyed: AD&D, all editions (didn't like D&D 4E though); old WoD; Paranoia; GURPS; Star Wars
Board Games: Talisman, Risk, Axis and Allies, Diplomacy, Arkham Horror, Settlers of Cataan, Pandemic, lots of others I can't remember the names of
Online Games: Eve Online

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion. Record of Lodoss War. Slayers. El Hazard: The Magnificent World. Macross Plus. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Many, many others.
2.Books or Internet-- a good book makes for good digestion, imo
3. Places to get food and drinks
4. Um, shelter? Sort of odd to put down as right now I have no need for a permanent address. Trucker life does that.
5. Air, I guess.
6. a bunch of ratios that make the universe stable enough for life.
Yeah, those last four are cop-out answers, but there's little I actually *need*. There are many, many many more things I like to have, or really want to have.
Oh, alright. I wanted to be an American Gladiator when I was in high school. Fighting with giant Q-tips was really alluring to me back in the day. It reminded me of Double Dare without the questions. Or the green slime, which would have been an awesome addition to American Gladiators.
