My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, I'm Joel. Logan Square resident, been in Chicago 10+ years and originally from the northern suburbs. I'm an attorney and I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, going out to restaurants, occasionally swing dancing and definitely socializing with quality people.

If you care to know more, please say hi! I would love to chat with you and I swear I am a respectful, genuine person with a sense of humor and last time I checked...yup, still not a creeper. So that's good.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hmm, I'm an attorney and I have been practicing for a few years now so there is that. Spring is here so I'm looking forward to coming out of hibernation and scoping out some new restaurants and getting back into swing dancing after a long winter. I'm always looking for new dance partners FYI. Making plans for my next travel destination.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
having crazy adventures? Getting lost is an art form, one in which I seem to have unintentionally mastered.

Also making myself laugh whenever I want. Always important to living a happy life in my book.

Boyish charm? Haha, I really don't know. I'd much rather hear what you first notice about me than me guessing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Some of my favorite all-time books include Lord of the Rings, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Devil in the White City, and World War Z. Pretty big into science fiction, fantasy, and historical literature. Recently reread the Game of Thrones books, in reverse. I found it pretty illuminating. Currently just finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and moving on with the series.

Movies - Way too many to name but let me throw some movies out there. Braveheart, Inception, Pirates of the Carribean 1-3, Star Wars, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, LOTR, 500 days of Summer, Fifth Element, Shawshank Redemption.

Music - Mostly an alternative/rock kind of guy. I do have a real affinity for oldies music (particularly 60's and 80's). I also have been on a jazz/swing music kick.

TV shows - LOST is my all-time favorite show (well...season 1-4 anyways). Current favorite might be Downton Abbey. I have been really enjoying Sherlock recently too. The last few years others have included: Firefly, True Detective, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Community, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Archer, Arrow, Castle, House of Cards, Cosmos, and Orange is the New Black.

Food - I'm pretty open to most types of food. Indian food is my favorite of any type of "ethnic" category. I have...kind of a sweet tooth as well. Like ice cream and I are pretty close friends. ...except I eat ice cream so I suppose that could lead to awkward situations.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Social interaction
Access to knowledge
Medical care

What a silly question!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how I can learn and grow. I am planning on enrolling in a Spanish class in the next few months.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends. While I can do the bar scene, I have a much greater preference for more intimate social settings with friends. Also, my family lives in the northern suburbs so not uncommon I'm out there for part of a weekend sometimes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is it really private if I make it public here? I feel philosophically perplexed by the wording of this question.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are actually interested in physically meeting someone. I understand it is difficult to open yourself to it as there are a lot of creepers and less than stand up gentlemen on this site. However, I don't think your OkCupid experience is going to work out too well if you are not open to meeting someone physically through this website.
