My self-summary
Like everyone else, I'm too complex to summarize in a couple paragraphs so be prepared for the generalizations.

I'm an INFJ for those who are interested in the psychobabble theories. I feel that they're useful for self-reflection and also just fun to think about.

Between being a more emotionally expressive individual and putting a lot of value on honest deep conversations I'm not the average man by most standards. I've come to the conclusion that it takes more confidence to own up to these personal qualities and principles as opposed to denying them for the purpose of appearing more masculine, normal, or acceptable.

I've found that this can be frustrating for some people. However, the few who have made genuine efforts to understand me have made me feel loved. That's why I extend that same effort to people by always trying to learn the specifics of how they see themselves and what motivates them in life.

With that in mind, some words and phrases I would use to describe myself, and what I try to be, include: open-minded, idealist, inquisitive, playful, creative, avid reader, liberal, amusing, intellectual, musical, feminist, HSP, and overall a strange and intricate variety of paradoxes.
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing my passion for education!

Recently moved back to the Bay Area, from Chicago, after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in the Social Sciences. I'm now volunteering as a literacy tutor and have an internship with a non-profit that supports school districts in need.

In other words, I'm trying to figure out how I can work to help other people discover their interests, reach their goals, and build genuine self confidence.
I’m really good at
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
How would I know? I don't have telepathic abilities. Or do I?

No seriously, I can't speak for other people.

2. Coffee
3. Art
4. Animal friends
5. Learning something new

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to continuously challenge myself in order to learn and grow as an individual.

What the near future holds for myself, family, and friends.

And you know funny analogies, pop culture, psychology, gender, art, literature, education, history, religion, physics, language, and ultimately life, the universe, and everything.

*bonus points if you caught the reference
On a typical Friday night I am
Some reoccurring activities include: making memories with close friends, going to an art walk, seeing live music, or just staying in to read or watch something I haven't seen before.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In order to give some insight into the kind of personalities I go for I'll admit my "celebrity crushes" have included Amy Poehler, Florence Welch, and Shirley Manson.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–37
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
Something sparked your interest, you enjoy indulging in artsy activities, you have a clever/interesting sense of humor, you also prefer to be friends before being romantically involved with someone. But above all, you have a good heart (empathy/compassion for others) and love for yourself.
