Greetings, fair lass, for I perceive that thou art fair. Thine locks of [color] hair frame an angelic countenance. Eyes of [color] beam back into mine, radiating intelligence, bombarding me with gamma rays of lucidity, triggering my Geiger counter of perception. "Beep beep beep", it goes in lockstep with my fluttering heart. Be still, oh beating heart! But not really--that would be fatal.
With that pomp out of the way, I suppose we had best get started. I have written volumes on Internet dating in an attempt to perhaps understand it much in the way Will Smith understood the real thing in Hitch. Do I get points for mentioning that movie? I should.
Anyway, a wee bit of biographical information for my clever and radiant audience: At the time of my writing this, I am a student at UVU and part-time Web Developer, finishing up a BS in Computer Science (will fiiiiinally be done this year), Software Engineering to be precise. I do love me some precision. My grandfather helped invent our atomic time-keeping algorithms, after all. Sadly, my math skills are quite lacking in comparison, but I do have killer breathing skills. I breathe like a ninja. As for future plans, apart from finding myself a wonderful co-ruler of the world, I suppose I will experiment with a few areas in computing, settling with whichever I enjoy the most. They all pay quite well, but I am in no way going to get stuck doing something I only sort of like. But I digress, as always. You'll get used to it. ;)
So, that's a rough view of my academic and career-based pursuits. As for hobbies, I have recently (and truly) gotten into writing. I hope by now you can tell that I at least hired someone who loves to ramble on in a professional manner. I write fiction and speculative articles on psychology and societal trends. Much of my free time is also consumed by technology, which is entirely natural, considering my career choice. And incredibly indulgent to my relative obsession. I read a lot, fiction in my spare hours, and non-fiction for work. As for what I read, we can surely discuss that betwixt the two of us, you clever diva. Though I am hardly good at it, I play the piano. As for music, I am picky, but not in a way that is easily explainable. I am philosophically minded, love discussing politics, and nerdy conversation of all sorts. Trust me: I will get all your nerdy jokes. But I won't limit myself with titles if I can help it. Who we are is defined anew every day of our lives.
You may come to understand this naturally, but I do have some fairly unique personality traits that you may find refreshing. I am honest in everything I say, and not just in the important things. When I tell you something, it is because I believe it to be true, and I will do my best to precede speculation with a declaration of such. When someone asks me how I am, I respond with how I am feeling, and not simply a canned answer. Weirds people out, but I have promised myself to always be honest in everything. You will come to understand other things about me, but I can assure you that I will always do my best to continue learning and expanding my soul in meaningful ways.
Generally, I enjoy many things. I have seen how many of you put things like "hiking" and "watching movies" in your profiles--I enjoy most of those things as well. A shorter list would be things that I do not enjoy, and though I don't revel in negativity, I do have a few things that I just cannot love as much as some. Just a few things. I do not most parties--actual parties. Too noisy, with no space to think. It has actually been proven that your ability to reason is inhibited in that environment. Anyway, not a fan. Dancing is cool, but I can only do simple steps. My body just lacks the ability to let loose. Horror movies are boring for me, since I somehow lost my fear reaction years ago. I can speculate on the "how" of this, but let's just leave it at that for the sake of brevity. Lastly, I cannot stand most television shows, and loathe commercials. I find them demeaning. There are good shows on every once-in-a-while, but I would much rather wait for them on Netflix, or just purchase them by the season.
And that's it! I like all those other normal things that you like. The only sport I play consistently is tennis, though I'm okay at all of them thanks to genetics. Woo! Some more unique things I do... I make memes! Good ones. I fancy myself a bit of a comedian and so make comedic videos and write amusing (IMO) stories. I play some video games, not consistently (though they were a passion of mine several years ago). But I play for money at tournaments when I do play. Got that competitive fever. Thanks to the Internet, I am now a big movie person and can discuss film at length. My next two hobbies to sorta master in my attempt to complete my perspective are photography and illustration, the latter of which I was involved with in the past, back when I was set on being an architect.
I love my parents and my sisters, and I love the principles of our beautiful gospel. And like you, I have at times wondered at the lonely state of those who find themselves without their better half. In the words of Tolkien, describing Sam's time in Mordor, "There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the shadow was only a small and passing thing: There was light and high beauty forever beyond its reach." This is but a moment.
In closing (in hopefully not the last thing you will read from me), I dare you (don't make me double that dare, because I will!) to contact me. If I find you, I will do the same. I must warn you that I really only like awesome people, much to my shame. :3
