Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a driven. I have a lot of energy and focus it on positive
endeavors. I'm good at making other people crack up, and if and
when that doesn't happen, I make myself laugh, which is just as
well. I'm an advocate of social change and self change, not through
ideas or textbooks, but through discipline and hard work.
I've started to become aware of the kaleidoscopic effect of time,
and I've noticed that each year is faster than the last. That
realization has prompted me to stop fucking around.
I have a solid career path, along the way in which I've been
steadily promoted, but I'm constantly striving for more.
I've learned that the best way to live is without suffering from
constant expectations. If you really care about something, put your
full weight behind it. But oftentimes we put too much stock in
affairs that aren't worthy of our attention, or that deserve very
little of it, or that are not within our control. And if that's the
case, let it go. (Google the article, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving
a Fuck." It's wonderful, practical, and illuminating).
I'm a father to a beautiful 12 year old son who I'm blessed to have
every other weekend. I had him when I was 17, which was both a
struggle and a gift. (I stopped having a romantic relationship with
his mother nine years ago.)
I love discussing philosophy and politics. I'm a very passionate
person. I've been accused of being an "intellectual," but that's
only when I slow down my thoughts -which rarely occurs.
I'm looking for someone who isn't necessarily similar to me, but
who has a similar trajectory, who's on the same wavelength.
Everyone always asks for the same traits in their partners -which
makes sense, because we're all programmed similarly. But I don't
care as much about whether or not we share the same interests -or
even beliefs. I want to feel that spark.
I know what I want. I want someone that is smart, compassionate,
and hilarious. Because I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My current role is the state field director of a non-profit. I have
a B.A. in political science and an M.A. in sustainable development.
I'm one of the few people who actually have the opportunity to
apply my education to my work and I feel lucky for it.
I am a fierce proponent of social justice and I would be unhappy if
I worked in any field where I felt like I couldn't positively
contribute to society.
I have an 11 year old son who I have every other weekend, which
usually involves playing baseball or getting destroyed in board
I play music and exercise everyday.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. Except on this website, obviously, which has a tendency of
making everything awkward.
Exercise. I'm great at sticking to my workout schedule.
Cards Against Humanity. I have a dark sense of humor and this game
really brings that out in me.
Making people laugh. Yeah, half the world fucking says that. But
I'm serious. A lot of people say I'm the most sharp-witted person
they know. I specialize in (poor) puns, sarcasm, current events,
and pointing out obvious hypocrisies.
Listening to Radio Lab.
The first things people usually notice about me

My laugh. It's unique and loud. My voice. It's scratchy.
I've been told I have beautiful eyes, a cute nose, and tiny ears.
Is that true?

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking about how this is a typical OK Cupid setup question. They
either want you to profess to being a hell-raising drunkard, or
someone that's too cool for school -"I like to knit and read
There is no typical Friday night. All weekend nights -minus your
routine, the following of which is, in my opinion, important-
should be atypical. I'm editing this on a Friday, and I have no
idea what the fuck I'm doing later.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I believe there's chance of actually meeting the right person
through online dating. I know, I know; it's not very "private,"
because I wouldn't be on here were that not so. But a lot of people
come here to fuck around, and I don't.
