I'm a hip, unassuming geek who thinks the best line of Shakespeare comes from the Macbeth that life "is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury/ signifying nothing," or the stage notes from "A Winter's Tale" "Exit pursued by a bear," (perhaps the only good lines in that torrid affair of a play); or perhaps I'm a boring, ex-jock looking for the last victory of my high school career; perhaps I'm quite boring but only because I'm uncomfortable with myself, but only only had I given myself a second date with myself, I'd be fascinating if I could only relax.
Most of my time I spend thinking, but when I'm not doing that, I'm a communications specialist at a large non-profit, an ironic turn of event since I'm neither special nor particularly communicative (though I did ride the special bus to school.). And wondering if wanting to buy a Mini Cooper automatically makes me a hipster douchebag. Not that I'm opposed to being a hipster douchebag in any way. Some of my best friends are hipster douchebags.
I'm a writer with a drinking problem and a drinker with a writing problem. I own a watch that reads "Remember You Will Die," and I'm far too concerned with my own mortality. I'm a formerly very religious Jew who didn't touch a girl for seven years starting when I was 18; I'm working on a second book if only I could stay off the internet and properly research trench warfare in the First World War (Please do message me, boy or girl, if you know anything about trench warfare). someone who's currently worried, as I write this, that I've told you everything
Well then consider this a successful first date then.
