I'd describe myself as pretty damned funny, smart, optimistic, curious, compassionate, low maintenance, and insightful. I understand that we are all a work in progress and I prioritize self-awareness and patience with myself and others. I am a secret nerd (LSAT prep book by my bed merely for the logic puzzles) with a long history of progressive activism that has shaped me deeply and left me with some great stories.
If we hung out, we would likely be laughing (a lot!), eating fantastic food from a relatively unknown (but A rated) hole in the wall, exploring NYC, beating the competition at a Game Night, talking politics/social justice, doing some DIY project, and/or you'd be teaching me about something that you are passionate about. At other times, we'd just keep each other company as we read or work on our own projects.
A side note to OkCupid : OkCupid, are you kidding me?!? The personality page suggests that i am less progressive than average. Let's see: Spent years working with incarcerated Black Panthers (check), "reclaimed" abandoned houses to provide housing for homeless folks, (check), help old ladies across the street, goshdarnit (check). You're wrong, Robot!!
