I'm a nerdy geek or a geeky nerd, science has yet to fully determine which.
I like reading, particular science, science fiction, and fantasy. Some of my favorite books are Diamond Age, the Dresden Files, the Hobbit, and the Foundation series. I also similar tastes in television, though I don't watch a lot.
Doing the right thing is something I take very seriously. I enjoy thinking about ethics and morality, and do what I can to make the world a better place. If someone needs help, then I usually do what I can to help them.
I currently work in a Data Center, though I'll be switching jobs soon and working with routers and switches more directly. It's fun working with the technology that helps keep the internet and related tech going (and more interesting than it sounds...to me anyhow).
I'm a bit overweight, but I am slowing getting the pounds off -- I exercise about 5 times a week.
I'm looking for someone for a serious and long-term relationship. I've never felt comfortable with casual dating (though getting to know someone is important, of course). I don't have any strong preferences regarding appearance -- to me it doesn't matter much. What I do find attractive and necessary in a potential match is kindness and intelligence. If I can't have meaningful conversations with someone and enjoy their mind, then I get bored. Similarly, lack of compassion is a major turn-off for me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
An ideal first date would have plenty of opportunity to talk and connect with whom I was with. I like long conversations that span multiple topics and range from the serious to the silly to the bizarre.
