I have my "outdoorsy" side: Hiking, parks, getting muddy offroading in a Jeep, indoor rock climbing, etc.
I have my "nerdy" side: I love sci-fi movies/shows, science, astronomy, etc. Neil deGrasse Tyson is my hero. I listen to science and skepticism podcasts.
And I have a "creative" side. I write music/sing (sort of rock/alternative-ish stuff), I like to design and build things, I've dabbled with photography and graphic design on and off, and did volunteer costuming and VFX work on two indie films.
I'm on here because my current social life doesn't put me in the situation of meeting many new people. I work in manufacturing, which is mostly guys. I go offroading and hang out with a bunch of people with Jeeps, but the few women there are all in relationships. I hardly ever go to bars or shows anymore. Not that I'm against it. I've hit the bar with friends for a beer and some wings, but I'm past the stage in life where you go to a bar or concert to hit on people. So... I don't know really.. I don't like the idea of hitting on random strangers who are just out trying to buy some groceries, that seems inappropriate to me. And while I don't "need" to be in a relationship, and I'm happy with my job and happy with my friends, and over all I'm content in life, I do want to be in a relationship. When I see people holding hands, I miss that. When I see people who look in love, I miss that. I like the whole "partner in crime" thing as so many people put it. "Us vs the world!", and team mate for life's adventures.
Certainly I'm not expecting love at first sight off this thing, but I'd like to meet someone with some common interests and hang out, see how things go. If there's no spark, "que sera, sera". If we become friends, cool. If we're a good relationship match, we can dance a happy dance and burn our dating profiles to the ground :)
