Long story short, I'm an odd, goofy fellow (in the good sense, not the creepy sense). I'm looking for someone who can appreciate, or at least tolerate, an odd, goofy fellow. If you are odd or goofy yourself, it's that much better. And for the record, "smarts" is not equal to your level of education. Amazingly enough, it is possible to learn things outside formal education. In fact, it might even be easier.
N.B. I don't read my own profile regularly, so if you want to tell me you found it or a bit of it really interesting being specific would be a big help. Not that you have to or anything.

I'm not sure; I'd be up for pretty much anything. Based on what I've read here, coffee seems to be a popular choice. It'd be fun for me, because, honestly, I've never had coffee before.*
*Not true. I have actually had coffee before. It wasn't a life changing experience though. Probably something on my end.
