My self-summary
I'm a warm, passionate and outgoing Chicago native who was friends with the punks, the nerds / intellectuals, the popular kids and the hip-hop heads – the same is still true today. I'm a bit of an unconventional smart-a** like Elaine Benes from Seinfeld (except that I can dance).

I’m a political and news junkie, floor hockey and volleyball player. I enjoy the adrenaline rush from both the sport of politics (part of my job) and playing (not watching) sports.

I also go to a meditation / Buddhism class - a great way to decompress and escape. Music is a huge source of happiness for me so I listen to a lot of Sirius Satellite Radio.

I often travel on my own, but make friends for life on every trip.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved here 15 years ago for a career in progressive politics - currently trying to improve life for low-wage workers and immigrants (meaningful and exciting). I've been lucky enough to maintain a good balance between work and play.

Enjoying the camaraderie of team sports, learning to counter the intensity of my job through meditation, seeing shows at the Black Cat or 9:30 Club.

Visiting a new continent every year while I'm still young and unattached.
I’m really good at
Speaking candidly, making people laugh and eliciting personal information and secrets they didn't intend to share.

Most of my friends and colleagues would probably say there's never a dull moment I'm around.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my voice, that I'm disarming and that I look a decade younger.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Everything ever published by Haruki Murakami, The Hours by Michael Cunningham, The World According to Garp and Widow for One Year by John Irving, The Road, by Cormack McCarthy, Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway.

Music: The Smiths, New Order, The Cure, The Clash, The Wild Swans, U2 (pre-'92), REM (pre-'96), Jane's Addiction, Gang Starr, Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, Deerhunter, My Morning Jacket, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, new wave, shoe-gaze, dark wave, chill wave and industrial.

Movies: Donnie Darko, Heathers, Magnolia, Goodfellas; anything by Woody Allen, Monty Python, John Hughes, David Lynch, Scorcese, Coppoloa and Tarantino.

TV: Louie, Colbert Report, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Portlandia, Justified, Homeland, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, All in the Family, Twin Peaks, Vice, Comedy Central's Roasts, Chappelle's Show, Da Ali G Show, Inside Amy Schumer, The Bridge and True Detective.

Food: Marzipan, Paseo's Cuban sandwich (Seattle), bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, steak, wasabi peas, salty carmel ice-cream, stuffed pizza (only in Chicago), layer cake and candy.
The six things I could never do without
Sirius satellite radio (music, comedy, news), candy, No-Doz (caffeine pills), physical / outdoor activity, good friends, the newspaper and dancing (perfectly comfortable being the only one on the dance floor, stone cold sober).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All of the experiences that shaped who I am today and the adventures that lay ahead. Social justice, current events and politics until I reach a boiling point.

The duality of living between worlds - being a grown-up with my longtime/close friends who are married with kids while playing sports, seeing shows, etc. with my much younger and active friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a wide, eclectic group of friends - so I'm usually doing something different, with different people every weekend. Other Friday nights I'm a guest on a radio talk show - talking politics with a former boss, or out watching friends do stand-up comedy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know less about my own religion than people of other faiths (I'm Jewish by birth but agnostic in practice).
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 34–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
You'd like to meet in person, not write back-and forth like avatars (: The only way to know if there's a connection & chemistry is by meeting face-to-face, in real life.

There's something(s) in my profile you appreciate or think we have in common.

You're also looking for a partner-in-crime in life - if things develop naturally in good time.

You have an appreciation for the absurd.

You read the news or have an interest in current events.
