Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Trying to break the cycle of DC so I won't tell you what I do for
work until at least the third date, don't worry I have a good job,
but I don't want it to define who I am. If that turns you off, then
we probably won't be a good fit.
I've tried dating someone who I could be a power-couple gay with
but I think I'd be happier with someone who knows what is important
in life and is willing to fight to get it. Namely family and
friends. It would be great if they are passionate about what they
do as well, but again I don't want someone defined by their
To me, being gay is only a part of who I am. I am much larger than
just a gay man. I am a political junkie, tech nerd, broadway
addict, aspiring chef, and baker of the world's best chocolate chip
cookies, and I volunteer with LGBT organizations to try and give
back as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This year (2015) I am focusing on deepening relationships with my
friends, establishing strong work/life separation (not just
balance) and cooking my way through 2 cookbooks all while feeding
friends on a weekly basis.
I try to workout, and often do yoga. I sing in the Gay Men's Chorus
of Washington, and help out friends edit their resumes.
I am choosing each day to be happy regardless of what comes my way.
Lastly, I'm going on at least 3 international trips this year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My chocolate chip cookies will make you doubt your mother's baking
ability ... or your money back.
Also, I am the "fun Uncle" to my 8 nephews & nieces, and like
any Uncle I of course have a favorite.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A fashion magazine once described me as "A 23-year-old in a
French-cuff blue shirt with bold-framed glasses" but now that I had
LASIK I would hope it is my smile.
A lot of friends would say it's my ass though TBH.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

There are far too many to choose from and I'm not
a fan of reading through lists that are too long so I shall pick
only a couple.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Paper books that I can write in and dog-ear.
Family & Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How i can leave the world a better place than I found it, even in
small simple ways like providing a meal for someone in need.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Prepping my Saturday dinner menu, making cookie dough, and then
going out with friends to a nice restaurant, lounge bar, or
apartment to be with those close to me. Oh and game nights.
Occasionally I will curl up with some hot cocoa and a book or go
dance my cares away at Town or Cobalt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am working on communicating my feelings openly and honestly with
others. It has come a long way but it might take me a few dates to
open up. Give me a shot though because I'm realizing that simply
saying hello to you isn't the same as showing that I care for you.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are fine avoiding discussing our careers for a few dates and
instead focusing on who each other is, then please reach out.
If you prefer netflix and pizza in rather than going out to the
If you think you can give a better massage than I can! (many have
tried, only my married straight friend has succeeded).
If your cookie recipe has aided in your friend's commit patricide
against their Mother's baking ability (none has succeeded here).
