Is it still the convention to start these things with a line from a song or poem?
Because I can’t decide which one to use. I don’t know if I want to seem pretentious, funny, deep, elitist, weird, obscure or just trite.
Maybe I should skip that part and just start the sales pitch…..
I am practical, fairly aggressive and pretty direct. I volunteer at Folk Fest every year. I am a geek (SF, games, comics). I am a hopeless romantic, but I hide if well. I used to take political science classes for fun (which I have been told is a sign of sickness), but I am not politically active. Definitely aware, but not active. I am pretty centrist, leaning right or left depending on the issue. I am a little bit of a homebody. I like to cook. I don’t like to clean. I am somewhat of a foodie, and love to eat out when I have the money, especially at ethnic restaurants. I read. A lot. I need more book shelves. I tend to be a little cynical and sarcastic. I like to work out. I would like someone active, who can help motivate me to run or try other things besides the gym. Someone who thinks an hour of striking and control drills is foreplay would probably be too much to ask for.
You don’t have to have a porn worthy body (but I won’t object if you do), but let’s face it, looks do matter. I am not in perfect shape (yet) but I am not interested in people in worse shape than I am. You can be brilliant, witty and fun, but if I don’t dig your body we will only be friends. And I realize I might not be everyone’s cup of tea either. That’s fair.
Sexually adventurous is a plus as well. Also a man who thinks striking and hammerlock drills are appropriate for foreplay would be a bonus.
I could use some friends as well as a boyfriend. I realized that I have less than two hands of friends in this city, and even fewer that I can hang out with spontaneously. I don't actually make friends easily. Acquaintances, buddies, sure, but not friends. But I am mostly looking for a LTR. But guys interested in combatives are of interest for either goal.
If you know what some or most of these are (without Google) that is a good sign (but not essential).

I am an introvert. Please don't just assume you know what that means, you are probably wrong.
