My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Joe. I moved here from my little suburban hometown in Georgia about a year ago for a tech job in Center City, fixing computers and doing other nerd stuff. My parents were Yankees, so I don't have a southern drawl, but I can fake it well enough.

This will tell you some things about me:
(It's like, 90% pictures of dogs)

I'm pretty consistently an INTP, for whatever that means to you.

I am occasionally bad at messaging people back, please feel free to yell at me in that case.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend the day working harder than I really have to, then come home and watch an episode of whatever I'm into, screw around on the internet, followed by reading and streaming NPR podcasts until I fall asleep.

Also constantly trying to make my apartment a little cozier.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things, explaining concepts to people and teaching, petting dogs. And I have a wealth of mostly useless history knowledge. I'm a good trivia teammate. Find me on a little app called Trivia Crack.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes are "really really blue".

You tell me, though.

Food: Indian food is the best; I could eat naan for days. Frozen yogurt is also amazing every time. For libations I like lagers (mmm Yuengling), Bailey's, and sometimes bourbon.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Dogs
2) Hope
3) The Internet
4) Animals. Especially dogs.
5) Jokes. Laughing is a good starting reaction to most problems.
6) People to talk to. I like to confess my personal struggles and successes to a few close friends who in turn do the same back to me. It's a good system for staying sane.

Nachos are also very important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cute people. Dogs. Maps, I really love maps. The intersection of art and information is really interesting to me.

What kind of tattoo I might want (probably map-related), although I'm really indecisive about what to carve into my skin, so I don't have any yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with a few close friends for games and conversation, out with coworkers for drinks, watching a movie, cooking something up for dinner or being lazy and finding a pizza to eat in front of Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My last Google searches are:

- largest buddha statue
- pebble shore lake
- pizza hut flavors
- elvish dictionary

I would be pretty comfortable being a stay-at-home dad, at some point.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Just do it, I'm pretty friendly. And meeting in real life is generally > awkwardly messaging over the internet.

You want to hang out in Ikea for a few hours, days, months, whatever.

Camping, hiking? I feel a desire to do more outdoorsy stuff.

I also really like people who make art, or create things, so cooking or knitting or any activity like that is very cool to me.

You want to get milkshakes and tell me about your life.

Also looking for day-trip/travel buddies, I haven't done that in a while and I like seeing new places.

Anyway, I'd like to meet a bunch of nice people and make friends in the not-online space, so let me know if you'd like to meet up sometime~
