So here I am looking for love. You too?
I asked my friend Eric how I should "summarize" myself.
Here's what he said:
"Ken is inquisitive, intelligent, able to appreciate perspectives other than his own, compassionate, uncomfortable in traffic jams, creative, resilient, musical, dryly witty, working more than he should, progressive, responsible, looking for an equal partner, devoted, more comfortable at intimate dinners than large cocktail parties, more interested in experiences than things, fun to hang out with but prone to crankiness when his blood sugar drops. Have some snacks handy."
You'll form your own opinion, of course.
2) Looking for love.
3) Seeing as much of the world as I can. Mostly Europe and North America right now but setting my sights on Africa and Asia.
4) Editing my OK Cupid profile for authenticity. And to catch me a man.
