"I like my women like I like my whiskey - 12 years old and slightly below room temperature."
Still reading? Maybe giggling a little? Excellent, we'll probably get along.
I'm a hyperspace post-romantic with a sense of fun that runs from the unconventional to the ill-advised. I over-think the ridiculous, roll with the unfortunate, and thoroughly believe that doing something just for the sake of doing it is not only acceptable but admirable.
Job-wise, I use AI to teach computers how to understand human speech. Depending on your perspective, this is either boring, awesome, or terrifying.
One Friday night, I discovered a blog written by a woman who claims to have sex with elves in Iceland. Not has had sex with, but is currently having sex. With elves. In Iceland. When you read it carefully, you realize she's just boning hoboes.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I like to mix a bit of the conventional and the unconventional on a first date. I'm a fan of the dinner/movie standard, but throwing in some skee-ball or a trip to a pottery studio in between makes for a much more interesting time. Dancing is even better - I know how to tango, and it's an excellent post-movie activity. Following up with conversation is a must - whether it be over coffee, desert, or a dumb board game. In my opinion, the phrase "hilarity ensues" should be used liberally in the description of any good date.
