I'm considerate, kind, and all those basic good things. I think the difficult in being specific here are the contradictions we all have. Black and white make the binary choices of like/dislike easier, but aren't we all a little gray? Well, here's to the hope that the rest of the profile can relay some of my nuance.
FYI, I'm actually happy with the life I've carved out for myself (and yet here I am on OKC). (I mean, is it greedy to want even more?) Similarly, I hope you are pretty okay with your life too and might just want to meet without stressing about it. Just a couple of human beings. NBD.
Well, maybe not. For work, I support some heavy lifting science types, so the saving the world thing is difficult to assess until after the fact.
Outside of work? I have a tendency to be a homebody, so I have a few guidelines to keep myself from bonding with my couch. Wandering the earth is a typical activity. Though I like the solo activity, I think this is a fun thing with the right partner in crime. (hint, hint...)
Physically, I can flare my nostrils. No, it's not practical, but that's not what the question was.
I tend to read crap. Best seller thriller or bad horror or tech stuff. I read for fun, and I tend to reread books.
I'm not a movie guy so much, but I realized what I do like is pretty dark. (Seven, Up in the Air, History of Violence, Lord of War, Falling Down, Eternal Sunshine...) I'll enjoy the mindless eye-candy or the thought provoking stuff as well.
I'm enjoy most genres, but don't seek out country, rap, pop, or R&B. My default is "alternative" but that can cover a lot of ground.
I subscribe to 20 podcasts, but do not keep up with all of them. They are somewhat evenly a combination of news(ish), informational, general conversation, interview, and entertainment.
I don't watch much traditional TV. Sports is probably the only reason I'd have any broadcast TV on. I've found myself consuming a lot of content from YouTube; probably half is comedic and half is "infotainment". I'll binge watch Netflix on occasion. At this point, there seems to be more good content then I have time to consume.
I like good food, but that can be anything from the local mom and pop place to fine dining. Day to day, I try to abide by Michael Pollan's rule of "Eat real food, not too much, mostly vegetables."
* I have no idea why these are mostly German...
I spend some time thinking about systematic problems (theses tend to be the bigger problems; political, environmental, social, etc.) For "fun", I like to think about technological advances and their impacts to humanity. Beyond that, human behavior, myself included, is endlessly entertaining to think about.
I went to the internet to find a better way to tie my shoelaces... and found it.
