Hi, I'm McKay, and if I were a knot I would be a butterfly knot. (OK, that's mostly just a line that I wrote to be different from everyone else. I'm not quite sure what it means.)
I tone it down for general company, but when I'm with the people I'm most comfortable with, I geek out a lot! I'm looking for someone who won't be weirded out when I suddenly turn really enthusiastic about a jazz piece, the latest Brandon Sanderson novel, a game of Ultimate (frisbee), a game of Dungeons & Dragons, a math or physics problem, the design principles of a board game, or the etymology of an interesting word.
Despite being 30, I'm still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. For much of the past four years, I was pursuing a PhD to become a researcher in biophysics, but that program proved not to be the right thing for me. Now I'm teaching as a test prep instructor for MCAT Physics, and also working on starting my own brand of board/card games.
The Gospel is a central part of my life, and I come from an awesome family that is the same way. If my marriage is going to be anywhere near as happy as my parents', then the fact that it hasn't happened yet is a great tragedy!
- I'm an "omnivert." Alone time and with-people time are both important.
- I mostly (but not always) prefer relaxing with simple pleasures, rather than crazy adventures, traveling, and fancy things.
- I amaze people with how clueless I can be about genres and categories of music that don't really catch my attention, including most popular current rock or pop groups.
- I'm very moderate politically; if asked, I'm often vocally opposed to both extremes of an issue. This can be a frustrating position to be in.
I'm looking for someone who likes my eccentricities; who laughs at my sense of humor; who makes me laugh. A relationship with healthy physical attraction in both directions. Someone who makes me a better person, especially helping me recognize constant tiny miracles from God in our lives. Someone who lives a life balanced between the spiritual, social, academic, athletic, artistic, and analytical.
