My self-summary
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 games.

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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Arrested Development, Ascension, Archer, LOST, The Walking Dead, Star Trek, House of Cards.

Any comedy, high-brow or low-brow.

Dystopian novels. Historical fiction. Political science textbooks.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mind-blowing concepts
Meaningful work
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Actualizing my potential. How to improve as a person. How to prevent myself from binging on Sour Patch Kidz directly after a long run.
On a typical Friday night I am
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 self-help articles."

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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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.

You're a kind person.
