My self-summary
Hello there!

What do you need to know about me?
I'm intense but laidback most the time.
I'm passionate about many things that are important to the world.
I'm pretty awkward, but it works for some people.
I enjoy movies and tv shows not to analyze, but to tune out.
I'm an avid reader of non-fiction, but fiction is a different story.
I care about the environment, but don't have a need to be in it every weekend.
I don't own a car and prefer it that way.
I have a tendency to need to be radically spontaneous at least a couple times a year to burst out of my typical routine. This can mean many things.
I'm fairly competitive with athletic activities, but more respectable (i.e. less trash talking, more nefarious deal making) with board games and the such.
I regularly keep up with politics and news and probably know too much for my own good.
I'm not afraid to make my opinion known and am a straight shooter.
I believe in honesty over everything.
I'm a realist so tact and I have a complicated relationship.
This also leads me to be a bit cynical.
But I'm happy nonetheless.

What am I looking for?
I'll admit I don't have this completely figured out. What I do know I need from a partner is someone who can engage with me intellectually, will stand up to me and call me out on my shit, checked their flaky tendencies at the door years ago, has a desire for the romantic or is at least able to tolerate my corniness and the fact that I probably watch more chick flicks than they do.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm about to start my dissertation looking at the suburbanization of poverty and the transportation options poverty populations are using to get around while also examining whether or not and how poor populations engage with car sharing and ride sharing services with the intent of seeing what barriers and opportunities there are for such services to aid poor populations with poor mobility options in the suburbs.

I have and continue to research many other things that relate to poverty, economic development, housing, politics, racism, the environment, and transportation.

Taught my first class (actually a lab) this past year and had a blast doing it. Became very glad I pursued this path in life. Yet, I also have no idea where it is going to take me.
I’m really good at
Understanding and explaining complex problems.
I'm good at seeing or understanding issues from different points of view.
My cooking has been praised fairly consistently by friends.
I also have some pretty good handyman skills.
Bowling. Currently have the 4th highest average in my league. Needless to say, none of my friends ever want to bowl with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I love movies and it's something I like to share with a partner. I'll watch pretty much anything, including chick flicks. My favorite types of movies are comedies and dystopian futures.

Shows: Big Bang Theory is my all time favorite. BSG, Doctor Who, West Wing, Supernatural, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, many others.

Food: I love food. Lets get some sometime! Just know that I don't eat seafood for allergy, health, and ethical reasons.

Books: I read the news daily with most my attention toward the main news, politics, and business pages (of course the comics as well). I mostly read non-fiction related to poverty, economics, politics, globalism, the environment, climate change, peak oil. My most recent book purchases have been related to suburban poverty and neighborhood change.

Music: my taste in music changes with my mood. Some days call for some jazz, others call for some indie rock or folk, and sometimes I need something a little more upbeat. Right now I've been really into Nas. Many Portlanders will scoff at this, but while I enjoy listening to music, it is far from being hugely important in my life.
The six things I could never do without
I can do without most things. I already live a pretty simple and uncluttered life. However, besides the wonderful people in my life, the following make my life a little more efficient and enjoyable

My bike (I don't own a car and I prefer it that way)
Netflix (it's an addiction)
Easily accessible banks of information (i.e. computer and internet)
My mind (even though sometimes it drives me crazy)
Nature
PNW beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about everything. That's not even much of an exaggeration. Ok, I don't think about drunk pigs riding zebras except for of course the moment I thought about them to write that statement. Usually, I'm thinking about a news story I read that morning (usually politically related) or something to do with my studies. As to be expected, I also think a lot about my future. Most recently that has been whether or not to include a potential foray into politics at some point.
On a typical Friday night I am
I may be at a bar, a friends house, playing a board game with some friends, or camped in front of the tv watching something on Netflix. I could also be reading. More often than not it's Netflix or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Snakes creep the hell out of me

I find riding my bike in pouring rain to be a strangely meditative experience.

I have been electrocuted more times than I think anyone should be subjected to.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you made it this far through my profile you had to have seen something that made you want to keep reading. Don't be shy, send me a message. I won't bite. Not on the first date at least ;)

While my desired traits are pretty flexible, my dealbreakers often are not. If you strongly identify with far-right political ideals, a regular smoker, have a life goal to live in the middle of nowhere, or can't be with someone that does not own a car then you probably should not bother. I feel it fair to tell you all I am allergic to cats as well, but I keep a healthy supply of benadryl around for such situations.
