My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intelligent, funny, quirky guy who has a pretty varied and interesting background. Doesn't that sound attractive?

I'd really like to be an idealist and I'm a pretty earnest guy, but it's little tough for me to let people see that. I smile when I see people being human to one another -- doing the right thing, not just looking out for themselves, etc. Being emotionally generous and honest is something I greatly admire in other people and qualities I try to live up to myself. I hope that comes across in my interactions with others. Unfortunately, it seems like I frequently come across like a dick. Clearly I need to work on that. It makes for some hilarious moments though!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a great job that I've been doing for a long time. I keep trying to decide if I need to go get an MBA and a new career track. I went so far as taking the GMAT. I need to make up my mind soon. Feel free to make suggestions; everyone else does.

I'm also trying to figure out of if I want to settle down, get married, etc or if I wanna go the career bachelor route. I pursued one of those two tracks for a long time and thought I was sure. Now I'm doubting myself.

Beyond that --- the rest is just details.

Though I'm working very hard on getting my dog to perform one very specific trick. She's terrible at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone immediately notices that my ears do not match. There, I said it! Their eyes go to them. They're embarrassed to say anything. Actually they probably notice that I'm quick-witted and have a fairly intelligent and sophisticated sense of humor. Like you just did if you read this correctly. Or that I'm a total dork who thinks that's hilarious.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dogs - People either get this or they don't

My iPhone - I forget how I survived without having the world in my pocket.

The printed word - I read constantly - books, magazines, news articles, Wikipedia

Water - I drink it compulsively. Quit smoking a few years ago and still have a massive oral fixation.

Music - It's the soundtrack to my life :) Sorry, couldn't help myself.

My 3 best friends - People come and go in your life all the time, but I'd really be lost without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things that don't make sense to me. Reddit's ELI5 is one of my favorite places on the interwebs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not the kind of guy who likes to go out to a club, but I REALLY like talking and listening so a bar or lounge were I can sit with a person or group or people and chat is really great. I have zero interest in someplace with over the top music where I have to stand and shout back and forth. I really prefer people who like to talk and share too, but people who are less talkative kind of make me uncomfortable because I don't know what they're thinking and in part because I then turn into a motormouth because I'm trying to find a way to draw them out and I end up being a bit annoying when I do that :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think I've ever actually brought this up to anyone, but I'm seriously thinking about taking voice lessons because I'd love to be able to sing and I seriously can't even perform a passable rendition of "happy birthday."
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 18–35
  • Near me

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
So basically I want to meet people who are smart, funny, strong, opinionated, open-minded, thoughtful, self-aware, curious, open and honest. I try to be all of those things myself. I like people who keep me grounded. If you think you fit into one or more of those categories, please say "Hello!"
