My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For the purpose of being upfront, I'm looking to meet people who share similar interests but also have the confidence to express differences and what's uniquely part of who they are. Also, I'm looking for friendship to start while remaining open to the possibility that one may turn into a romantic relationship. If that's unclear please feel free to ask any questions.

Okay, like everyone else, I'm too complex to summarize in a couple paragraphs so be prepared for the generalizations.

Between being a more expressive individual, once I open up to someone, and putting a lot of value on honest personal conversations I'm not a normal guy by most standards. I believe in trying to walk the fine line between self-confidence and humility. My consistent life goals are to learn, laugh, and love all while trying to leave the world a better place for everyone.

Some words and phrases I would use to describe myself, or what I try to be, include: INFJ, open-minded, inquisitive, playful, creative, respectful, avid reader, logical, outdoorsy, non-arrogant intellectual, organized, musical, 49ers/Warriors fan, and overall a strange and intricate variety of paradoxes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work 2 part-time jobs. One as a Development Assistant for an NGO and the other as a sales associate.

Working in development has been amazing! I've really enjoyed the purpose of the work, the challenges, and the people involved. Which is why I am chasing my dream of working full-time for a NGO/non-profit that respectfully gives disadvantaged individuals opportunities to build better lives.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Active listening, over-thinking by most standards (wait, should I admit that?), getting through my to do lists, reading subtexts, cuddling, and getting too much enjoyment out of bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, nobody's ever told me what they notice. I'll have to get back to you on that one.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Curiosity
2. Something interesting to read
3. laughter
4. Music
5. Personal goals
6. A logical explanation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

No really, I think about all of life's unexpected outcomes and what they mean for everyone involved.

The little dreams that keep me motivated (traveling to Italy, going on a road trip along the coast, kayaking, adopting a dog, etc)

How to most effectively organize and communicate information to other people for grant requests.

Why my love for dogs continues to grow as my faith in humanity slowly diminishes.

And you know weird analogies and puns, pop culture, gender, psychology, current events, love, education, economics, religion, literature, history, physics, music, language, and ultimately life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I enjoy going to art walks, catching up with friends and family, seeing some live music, or just staying in to read or watch something new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In order to give some insight into the kind of personalities I find attractive I'll admit that my biggest "celebrity crush" is Amy Poehler.
