Some stream of consciousness thoughts:
I figured it was time I hopped on here because I've run out of excuses for not doing it.
I'm very goal and career driven. Too career driven, so I'm trying to work less and have more fun. Working less for me still means working a lot, which I find mostly ok because I'm easily bored without challenges. I try to make the most of the weekends though.
By "challenges" I mean intellectual or fun pursuits, not people who are challenging to deal with.
I like people who have their own goals in life since I'm pretty busy with mine. Almost all of my friends have a good sense of humor so it's safe to say that's one of the personality traits I appreciate the most.
I invariably go to the gym 3-4 days per week. I probably will until I have so many injuries there's no longer any point. I stick to a relatively healthy diet but I'm definitely not against pigging out. In the summer I like to ride my bike for hours until my knee explodes. I hope you can carry or at least roll me to the hospital when that happens.
I love science and technology, and I'm a huge nerd at heart. Not a sci-fi kind of nerd, but more of a "Sorry, I got distracted by a YouTube video on string theory and didn't notice my apartment is on fire" kind of nerd.
I like a lot of not-very-mainstream rock and electronic music. I like rock concerts, which are the only places I enjoy being crushed in a crowd of people (don't worry, I have friends to join me for those types of events). I like nice restaurants and hole in the wall bars equally. I don't like how many times I've used the word "like" in this profile.
I love big cities. I live downtown so I can pretend I live in one.
Oh, I'm supposed to say something about who I'm looking for. I like people who are witty, smart and easy going. On weekdays, I'm at work a lot, plus travel, so I usually get along best with people who have their own hobbies. I'm not particularly looking for someone with the same type of lifestyle, but I am looking for someone who doesn't have a problem with mine. At the end of the day, I'm looking for someone I'd have fun doing just about anything with. If that's a friend, that's fine too.
