Maybe a third-person approach will grease the wheels here...
He's an interesting sort of chap.
Polite, well-mannered and considerate, you can bring him anywhere and your mother will like him.
He's very fond of drinking kefir and green tea while reading the news online. He's kind of addicted to Business Insider.
He's a reliably Democratic voter.
He's had his brushes with death in overambitious wilderness adventures, these days preferring to navigate the landscape of ideas.
He's been playing guitar since age 10 and remains a voracious listener of rock, blues, jazz and classical. He can also play drums, bass and piano, though he mostly just plays guitar these days.
He's a film buff and one of his favorite activities has been serving as an indie film festival juror here in the city.
A group of well-meaning solipsist classmates in high school voted him Most Likely to Exist.
Intelligent people tend to appreciate his sense of humor and find him a good conversationalist (how's that for self-serving.)
He tends to be gregarious and doesn't take himself too seriously, in spite of the foregoing.
He is analytical and also creative. Passionate and also pragmatic. Open-minded and sentimental.
He loves to stay abreast of cosmology and eagerly awaits the peer-review results concerning the finding of gravity waves this past March. If the finding holds, it will be the first physical evidence supporting a theory that may entail our living in a multiverse, possibly one with another you and him in it. And how is that not mind-blowing?
He was born and raised in S. FL and goes back there several times a year. It's lovely in the Winter.
