Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a philosopher by trade, bad poet by habit, and a literary
fiend by necessity. So, I'm a nerdy fellow with a penchant for
spending too much free time playing video games, and reading.
Though I certainly have an active side that loves to play
racquetball, go kayaking, and hiking and other such adventurous
whatnot. I'm an atheist and a feminist with a bit of socialist
I'm an introvert that loves engaging, earnest, intimate
conversation. I'm from the deep South and am up here to finish my
Masters degree in philosophy (last semester!), but am lacking in
any cool Southern accent.
I'm not one of those macho guys whose feelings only consist of rock
and roll and not being afraid of things, and I tend to think gender
norms are silly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Adjunct professor starting in the Summer. Living the dream of the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading for days, and analyzing media until even the Freudians are
screaming “Sometimes a cigar is simply a cigar!”
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m waif thin, I eschew gender norms, and am infectiously
passionate about more things than I can shake a stick at... And I'm
a damn good stick shaker.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- Fantasy, literary fiction, science fiction, new weird,
poetry, philosophy, and more or less anything I can get my hands
Movies- Is it just me or are movies the short stories of our time?
I’ve stopped looking for character development in them, since it is
so much richer in books and tv shows that last 8 seasons long. Give
me a movie with a novel idea, that passes the Bechdel test, and
that doesn’t have too many explosions and I’m probably
Shows- Too many, I’m something of a Netflix addict. I just started
watching Unbreakable Kim Schmidt, and I’m in love.
Videogames- For nostalgic days, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Diablo II
and Starcraft. Minecraft is great for shutting off my brain for a
spell, but I do fall in love with games with a good story.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Art- From paintings to literature, to video games, any kind of art.
Without it I would wither and die.
Nostalgia- “I was nostalgic from an early age”
Brainless entertainment- I have to shut off every now and then
Furry critters- You probably shouldn’t trust me, I’m probably using
you to get closer to your cat, dog, or other furry friend.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cool philosophy questions, duh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Send me poetry, ideas, art, politics, and/or philosophy and I am
yours. I tend to fall for a lady after she expresses a few cool
ideas or cultural critiques.
