I would describe myself as an intellectual. I don't necessarily think I'm brilliant but I like to deepen my understanding of the things I'm interested in. And yes politics is one of them. Also history, science and some philosophy. I like knowledge for its own sake, and when I come across someone with similar interests, I find the best is when it's not just a discussion, but a mutual education process. That's cool to me. If you feel the same way, we might do well together.
And yes, I am as tall as stated. Guys who lie about such things in their profile make no sense to me. You're going to get caught in it, so why do it in the first place? I harbour a strong dislike for lying, even as society seems all too often to prefer lies over truth. We all deserve better than that.
But I am far from perfect. What I am is a decent, moral man who works hard and likes to relax on his time off. I'd like to go somewhere to enjoy a good meal with you, preferably somewhere where talking is at least possible. I also have a deeply founded, sometimes twisted sense if humour that can be sarcastic, silly, or simply surprising. I carry it with me at all times.
As for looks, I'm somewhere between Adonis and an ape. You get to make the call as to where I land.
Some other things about me:
If you are looking to take over the world, I can help with that.
My PC has absolutely no Microsoft software on it.
Android over Apple.
I spend too much time on my smartphone. I know when to shut it off, however.
I know the Caramilk secret.
I began life as a fan of both Star Trek and Star Wars and see no need to pick one over the other. As an adult I've now added Doctor Who to my fandoms. There really needs to be a word for someone who is a fan of all three. Preferably something I'd actually want to be called.
I held out as long as I could but I have become a Game of Thrones fan.
I know far more about a few things, and far less about many things, than most people.
I love that quantum physics undermines the philosophical basis for determinism.
I don't drink, but I'm open to the idea that chocolate should be a food group.
I'm a freak of nature and I have the statistics to back it up.
I cannot stand the word "whilst."
My favourite phrase is "Arctic Archipelago."
If you find anything I've said interests you, drop me a line. If you think that nothing I've said might interest you, don't. Happy fishing!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Somewhere where good conversation could be had. Food would have to be involved. It'd be somewhere not-too-fancy, but it might work best to have knives and forks on the table. I'd like to find about you and let you find out about me.
