NOTE: I am happily CHILD-FREE. I do not have kids, and I do not want kids. If you want a woman who wants kids, visit another profile. I keep getting messages from guys who the first thing they say is "I want kids and I want a woman who wants kids." So look elsewhere.
I'm a free spirit, geeky goth (or gothy geek). I like to travel, to seek what's just beyond the horizon. I write constantly -- articles, stories, comics, all kinds of stuff. I like to hang out in places I feel comfortable -- local coffeeshops, anime and sci-fi conventions, nerdy meetups, parties thrown by mutual friends.
If I'm not learning something new, I feel like I'm wasting my time. I read constantly, and I enjoy listening to people tell stories.
My interests range pretty widely -- from comics to world travel to Star Trek to ancient greek history. A couple of things I'm into currently are indie comics -- I run a local meetup for comic creators -- and indie game development (I attend a lot of the local game jams, where you spend 48 hours over a weekend creating a playable game.)
Other important things about me: I am fat/bbw, I believe in fat positivity and anti-body shaming, I am a staunch feminist, I am pro-choice, and I am childfree and have no interest in having children or being any kind of a parent.
I have a sweet adorable cat whom I love to bits.
My Match Description:
I'm looking for someone with a great sense of humor, that doesn't take himself too seriously. Bonus points if you can recognize obscure geeky references -- I tend to drop them into conversation a lot. Also bonus points if you like Indian food or sushi or both.
You should have something going on in your life. Maybe it's your job, maybe it's your hobby, but you should have at least one thing you love and enjoy and are passionate about. Do you draw, do you write, do you build stuff? All pluses. I tend to get Internet crushes on people like webcomic artists, or who record rocking YouTube videos of themselves playing the violin, or film webseries.
(Note: I love video games as much as the next geek. However, nothing pisses me off more than the guy who turns down sex in favor of a video game. If that guy is you, don't bother to contact me.)
I would love someone to go on weekend (or longer) trips with, as I love to travel and I don't get to do it nearly as often as I like.
Above I said I love to learn. One of the things I'm really interested in learning more about is sex. My partners up to this point haven't been very adventurous, whereas I consider myself an explorer and a learner, and I want to try lots of different things.

I'm a formerly-athletic super-geek. I am a physics and philosophy major and aspiring science fiction author, I make my living working as a business-to-business telemarketer by day, and save the world from dastardly evil villains by night, in-between gaming sessions, working on my book, and classes (though it's a challenge; villains are rarely accommodating of a person's schedule ;P ).
I was active in soccer, karate, camping/hiking, swimming and water-tubing through highschool, and still have the soccer-player's build, though I'm not as active and fit as I used to be. I still try to watch what I eat, and make some effort at exercise now and then, but I'm not that great at keeping at it on my own (so many distra- >.> Ooo, shiny!).
I'm a major sci-fi and fantasy and computer geek, and I love brains in a girl (mmm braaaaaaaiiinssss- er, ah, sorry ^_^; ). If you can get the geek references I throw out (or throw out some of your own), and/or understand the elegance of timeless physics, you score major points in my book. I'm a science/computer geek, and proud of it and love knowledge and the quest for the expansion of knowledge in general, as well as the pursuit of useless knowledge for the sake of useless knowledge (like the 27-page essay I recently wrote on the history of Star Trek starship design...). I'm opinionated and a contrarian - I have strong opinions on a lot of things, and I have an almost instinctive tendency to play devil's advocate, even against positions I strongly support (and yes, even while I'm supporting them...). I'm also not afraid of voicing my opinions, once you get me going (though I have a tendency to hold back to avoid inappropriate controversy, and sometimes too much so). I'm also weird and random, I like doing the proverbial equivalent of standing on the wall and looking at other people like they're the ones doing something weird, or standing on the ceiling and walking around shouting, "Why are you upside down, soldier?" I like to make jokes and witty remarks, some good, many not-so-good, and some crude (when not inappropriate). I love long discussions and debates, can and have written 10,000-word essays on Star Trek technology in a single afternoon (more than once...), and I have been known to become extremely frustrated with my philosophy class for running around patting each other on the back for agreeing with the philosopher-of-the-week.
Random smatterings of thoughts and self-description I haven't worked into the above yet:
I tend to be a gentleman / classic 'nice guy' in my general day-to-day, but I can be a real ass when I desire or am compelled to be. My co-workers are generally surprised when I curse or crack a dirty joke at work, a reaction I frequently get, but put me in a game of America's Army, and I will blister the ears off a seasoned sailor (for some reason that game in particular sets me to cursing up a storm, even when I'm having a lot of fun; I'll curse while playing other games, but nowhere near as much as when playing America's Army... I'm not sure why). I can also produce very scathing and biting remarks when compelled, but I have to be either very deeply hurt and/or insulted, or addressing someone I thoroughly despise or an arrogant jerk/***hole who deserves to be cut off at the knees.
Related to the above, I'm generally an honest person, and anyone who knows me well enough can probably tell when I'm lying (I'm not terrible at it, but I'm not exactly great at it, either). And yes, I do lie sometimes (to claim otherwise would be, well, a lie). Generally I uphold and maintain a certain obligation to the truth - I'm training to be a scientist, and dishonesty is in many ways anathema to the core of my personality, but sometimes when playing strategy games with friends, or if I ever go to war with someone, I can be a real rat **stard.
I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. If I tell you something, there's a good chance I'm putting a lot of myself into it, and if it's of anything of significance or significant length there's a good chance I'm pouring my heart out. I do it a lot. I get burned and painfully disappointed a lot, too, but that's not going to stop me. It's who I want to be, and if I ever became so bitter or scheming that I stopped, I would probably despise myself.
If you ever want to learn a lot about me, and how crazy I am (my own insanity is something I have openly maintained for quite some time), just ask me about it. It is a long story, though.
I write several-thousand-word essays on Star Trek technology and socio-political history for fun. My record for longest is an ~14,000-word, 27-page essay on the history of starship design in Star Trek, written from an in-universe perspective. My record for longest essay written in the shortest time is a 10,000-word essay on the operation of phaser arrays that I wrote in ~4 hours one afternoon. Yes, I'm THAT kind of Star Trek geek. =D
I'm actually pretty shy, and I still have a few deep insecurities, I've just gotten really good at pretending I'm not.
I have very strong political and philosophical views, though I have little patience for radicals and fundamentalists of any stripe. I can ramble and/or rant at length about politics and philosophy, or extremism/fundamentalism in general, though I usually refrain from doing so because it is often discourteous to ramble/rant at people, and I don't like to be insulting or discourteous to anyone who doesn't thoroughly deserve it.
I thoroughly enjoy discussing and/or debating politics, philosophy, religion/theology, Star Trek lore, Star Trek vs assorted sci-fi franchises, and a myriad of other things. I can get pretty passionate about all of the above, and I can be very confident in many of the conclusions I have drawn/argue for because I tend to have a lot of support for them, but I prefer [i]civil[/i] discussion and debate to childish argument. I can get heated and passionate, but I still try to maintain [i]mature[/i] discussion. Few things spoil a discussion of philosophy or a Star Trek vs Star Wars debate than someone flaming into childish ad hominem attacks...
I support the Star Alliance and have enlisted in the war against Twilight and sparkly vampires (it's okay to be Takei!).
I am to be a renowned science fiction author, and my 'flagship' story is a high-brow science fiction novel series with a fantasy setting (though that changes somewhat later in the series), and I currently have 35 out of the probably 40 novels at least roughly summarized. One of my ultimate life goals is to surpass Isaac Asimov as the most prolific science fiction author in history.
I have been half-jokingly toying with the idea of running for President since I was 15 or so.
I want to be a starship captain when I grow up.
My Match Description:
I am looking for someone who is compassionate and caring, kind and understanding, but who won't hesitate to stand up for what she believes in or what she thinks is right. Someone who is intelligent and adventurous; someone I can geek out with, on whatever interests we share, and who will push me to keep up on a hike. I'm looking for someone always willing to smile, someone who can take things seriously while still making jokes, and still looking to the bright side. An idealist and hopeless romantic, someone who looks at the stars and dreams of all the wonders the world can hold, and that can be accomplished. Someone who shares some of my interests, but who can also show me new things, who I can show new things to, and someone I can go off with to find completely new things with together.
For me, physical attraction is not insignificant, I want to be with someone I'm attracted to, but WHO you are, your beauty as a person, is much more important to me than what you look like.

I am an avid reader who can find the funny in almost everything. I love a good joke so prepare to bring your A game. I would also say I am a huge fan of geek type things. You can count on me to know who the latest companion in Doctor Who is, tell you the brilliant line you missed in Sherlock, tell you why you resemble a Ferengi, and actively participate in almost any video game session. Minus COD. I'm not a fan of gore which means I miss out on some great video games/ movies.
I am up for new experiences, meeting new people and just generally being open at the moment. I am looking for someone who it is easy to be with and, at the end of the day, who thinks its easy to be with me.
My Match Description:
Looking for someone who is cute and comfortable in their own skin. Who can hang out with me and my friends but can stay in and doing nothing but watching weird tv all night long. Someone who has a great sense of humor or can laugh at life a lot. Laughing is my bread and butter.

I love video games of almost all types. I played Super Mario World back when I was a kid and have grown up on them since. I've played Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Halo, CoD, Dead Space, Paper Mario, Resident Evil, Pikmin... Everything besides racing and sports games. Nintendo has always been a close friend. Don't get the wrong impression, I exercise roughly 8-12 hours a week with running, swimming and strength training.
I enjoy anime of all kinds and try my best to watch different genres. My job unfortunately doesn't allow me to move, but I can travel when close. My job can be demanding but is very rewarding for myself and a girl who can stay with me. The commitment is challenging but worth it.
I have an interest in sci-fi, fantasy, and a weird interest in good horror genres.
I like to get outside and run around in nature. I'm not very good at anything related to sports, but I love trying when pressed.
My Match Description:
I'm looking for someone who shares identical interests. I'd like to meet someone who I could spend hours with playing video games and watching anime with. Chilling on a couch and laughing together over a good show/anime is a perfect setting. A strong interest in science would be great, but not necessary. I think humor is extremely important and would love to laugh and make laugh, vulgar and publicly inappropriate jokes are awesome, but clever puns will impress me the most!

This. Is an overhaul. This is a replacement to the novella which once existed. This. Is a warning.
For all those who stumble upon me and think "lunch with her might be a lark" (though I doubt anyone thinks with the term "lark" much anymore, and if you do, I would love to talk to you), be prepared for what awaits you.
I am anything but average. I'm an arrogant egoist. I'm a snob. I don't think I know everything, but I like to sound like I do. I don't know my IQ number, but I still place highly enough that many people can't keep up with me, and it's been difficult to find people who make me feel like the slow member of the class. I read body language like it's going out of fashion. I value honesty second only to intelligence, which is actually, itself, second to humor; make me laugh is the golden rule. Speaking of the Golden Rule, I learned that one when I was in first grade, and I live by it. When did this stop being a valid method for human interaction?
I'm not Politically Correct, but I am generally bound by the rules of etiquette and dislike making others feel awkward, so "off color" jokes and references usually stay tucked up my sleeve when I know they're inappropriate.
I'm not a size 8. If I ever became a size 8, it would be because I'm dying. If I ever made it to a size 12, I'd look like a broad-shouldered version of an anorexic model, and I'd probably have to be anorexic to achieve it. Luckily, I like food and my own shape too much to ever bother with such a mentally and physically damaging life-style. Despite my own self-love and comfort, I dislike when other generously figured people think that it's perfectly okay to harass thinner women (ample figured women are the worst culprits, in my experience). There is a healthy weight for everyone, for some it's obviously smaller than others, and they shouldn't be made to feel that they're less simply because they're tiny. The same is true for making larger people feel like second class citizens. Also, stop using the Rubenesque defense; being well fed was a sign of beauty and status when it was harder to eat well. Being "well fed" now is an easy look when the cheapest foods pack on the most weight. Being "well fed" is a sign of laziness, lack of concern for oneself, and a small budget. If this bothers you, then do something about it, you know, other than complaining around a mouthful of pizza. Which reminds me; I'm lazy. If I were less lazy, I'd have made exercise a regular thing by now. I say I'm into bellydance, but I never get around to it. Please don't try to sugar-coat being lazy for me. I'm not conserving energy, I'm not being energy efficient. I'm lazy, and I'm perfectly happy with that fact, and I don't want tactful redefinitions applied. For me, at least (and I by no means speak for everyone) it seems like renaming it expresses shame in the fact that I am that way, that I in some way want to soften it to make myself feel better about doing (or in this case, not doing) it. Not so, sir. Not so.
I'm a Time Lady. I adore Doctor Who. I do not adore Doctor Who filks. I like meeting others who enjoy the Whoverse, and those who appreciate Time Lord culture, without becoming the Western World equivalent of an Otaku (oh, and I enjoy anime and can't get on with genuine Otakus).
Let's see . . . what else now. Oh, yes. This is rather important. I tell my best friend everything. I'm going to say "literally" here, because it applies, but as a side note, I REALLY hate the inappropriate over use of the term "literally" when people mean "figuratively" in every single sense. That aside, I do literally tell my best friend everything. Most people hear that and they still think that there are things we don't tell each other. Please resist this urge and know that everything I know, she knows, and vice versa. If you're uncomfortable with that idea, then nothing more than a friendship would work between us, because I cannot handle a relationship which is not fully honest. If you're hiding things from me, and I'm good at figuring out when this is true (you might be unaware how much this affects natural behavior), and it becomes apparent that I can't trust you, then my ability to commit is severely compromised. Trust is All.
This one time I was playing Scattergories with said best friend (if you're unfamiliar with the game, I recommend becoming familiar; it's fun with people who aren't stupid), and the letter was J. Under fictional characters, I wrote "Jesus". It started a fight. Moral: Never use inappropriate humor around people who take you seriously. That group wouldn't give me points for K-pigs either (Letter: K, Category: Animal). Heathens. I love literary games that aren't online Scrabble. See, in real world Scrabble (assuming it's run by my best friend and I) words which do not properly exist may be used on the board, so long as a believable/humorous enough definition is provided, preferably a combination between the two. We also re-wrote the rules to Monopoly. I apologize if you enjoy regular Monopoly. It bores me to death. It's far more exciting when you can mug people (roll against target for success, then roll for amount stolen), and kidnap their pieces (if they fail to notice their piece is missing before the next turn, a ransom must be paid). There was also open trading of properties. I thought about pirate rules for chess, which I still think would be gloriously entertaining, but I get easily bored by trying to understand chess's current intricacies, so that plan never really took off.
I think I'm in love with a sociopath. Don't worry. I don't think it threatens your chances. He is, after all, a fictional character. PBS's most recent Masterpiece Mystery! has presented me a Sherlock whom I find irresistible. Granted, he's emotionally unavailable in many ways, and there would be a large portion of me starved for attention were I to fall for a man EXACTLY like him, but there are so many qualities in him that I find beyond appealing. I'm also destined to marry Prince Arthur from the BBC's interpretation of the Arthurian legends presented in the series Merlin. Nothing like a touch of class and arrogance to put me in the mood to be wooed. I'm a sucker for "stoic guardians", typified by Jocelin Verreuil from Jaqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy. I suppose I should clarify, because "stoic" really isn't the right word. There's a composed air about these men, which belies an undercurrent of deep passion, This can come across in a shallow sense as being stoicism.
I like my Vista OS, and I swear that most of 7 could have been added to Vista as downloadable packages and updates. Deal with it.
The important things in life: Humor: I love to laugh. Music: I sing, play some piano, am learning the flute, and can pick out tunes on most of the instruments I pick up. Literature: Reading has always been a passion, as has writing, and I do both extensively. Family: I cherish mine more than anything, and would fight to the death to protect them (and it should be known that if I'm forced to fight to the death, you can bet I will do everything I can to inflict as much damage as possible when I go). Animals: I'm an animal person, I have many, I love them, and so will you. Politics: I hate them. I will not discuss them. If they're an important part of your life, I'm not the one for you. I dislike people being put in a position where they feel it necessary to keep part of themselves locked away for the sake of the person they're with. It's unhealthy and it's uncomfortable. I WILL not discuss politics to any great degree, and should I be sucked in, it's probably John Stewart's fault.
I love when boys are boys, and men are men. There is so much to appreciate in watching them exist as they are. I love bits of shows where men are unobserved by women and allowed to simply be. It's very refreshing. Speaking of you men, I suppose we should move on to Section B: Match Description. I'm sure you're just dying to know.
My Match Description:
If you're being a wuss, I'm going to call you on it. I will probably do so by telling you you're acting like a woman. If that's a problem, then we're never going to make it.
If I can't respect you, then we're also not going to go far.
I find strength to be intoxicating, but my definition of strength has never been easy to pin down. It's not so much the physical manifestation (though muscles can be quite the sexay), but a question of character.
I can't deny the fact that a little bit of arrogance is sexy in a man. Did I say sexy? I meant VERY sexy. The problem is how much arrogance can arise from an insecurity which demands compensation. Insecurity is a weakness I really can't handle in a man, because the arrogance born from it is the kind which tends to overwhelm mine, and which denies me my own pride. My pride, by the way, does not enjoy denying others their share of spotlight. I prefer to have it shared.
Mental acuity is a plus, a sharp sense of humor is a double plus, and giving in to my every demand is double plus ungood. I hear I can be hard to deny, and I don't use it to my advantage because I don't enjoy manipulating people. What I do enjoy is the sense that I'm getting away with something with someone who knows that if I start to take things too far, I'll respect their No when it comes. Until then, we're just enjoying the game.
Play my games. Not Monopoly with the good rules. I mean the off-handed comments such as "Oh, yes, that thing you're admiring. I made it." This is more often than not OBVIOUSLY untrue.
Be genuine. Just because I like these things in a man doesn't mean I like them when they're fabricated for my sake. Truth is All. If it's not you, then it's not you, and I would prefer you remain true to yourself to find that woman who does appreciate what you have to offer instead, because I already have a good idea of what I want. Don't do yourself a disservice by trying to fit my honestly outlandish preferences.
I'm tall, I like men who are taller. 5'9" isn't tall. That's short, because if I wear heels (and I do), then you're no longer visually taller than me. It's not a hard and fast rule that I'll only date men taller than me, but I'll call you short if you're under 6'0". Be prepared for that if it applies.
I'm shallow in-so-far as the fact that physical attraction is very important to me. I want to look at you and occasionally admire you, and if you know that I'm doing that, you should let me, because you know it's true. Conversely, if all you have to offer is the fact that I can enjoy looking at you from a far, that's all I'll ever do, and that won't be for long; a nice face catches my eye, substance maintains my attention.
I'm finding myself distracted now, so that probably means I've said far too much.
I am anything but average. I'm an arrogant egoist. I'm a snob. I don't think I know everything, but I like to sound like I do. I don't know my IQ number, but I still place highly enough that many people can't keep up with me, and it's been difficult to find people who make me feel like the slow member of the class...
