My self-summary
From the midwest (the place from which everyone's proud to be but not necessarily stay) and have lived in New York for awhile now. I teach young kids and like to travel as much as possible. Friends are important and I have good ones. I like to be outside, so the winter's not my favorite. Last year I rode my bike from Buffalo to Albany along the Erie Canal. Although I don't often go on trips like this, I like to ride as much as possible (weather permitting). I think it's important to know things and I'm always trying to learn more. I know that should be a given, but it's not. I find apathy offensive. A friend recently told me that I don't suffer fools well and that may sum me up. It also probably makes me sound more serious than I am.
I’m really good at
Grammar, so that dangling preposition up there bothers me. ( I'm actually not a grammar wiz but i do hate a dangling preposition.) Making light of serious situations. Seeing multiple sides of an issue. Listening to music. Sarcastic quips. Pointing out the obvious. Making you laugh about things you shouldn't. Road trips. Multitasking. Understanding perspectives I don't necessarily agree with. Riding my bike around the city. Wearing the wrong shoes on hikes. Reading books. Watching movies. Pickling things, even though Portlandia has given me shame about it. Arguments. Cooking food. Procrastination (I work better under pressure). Running around with friends. I like to work in my garden but that doesn't mean that I'm good at it.

I really hate the term "mostly vegetarian". I feel like that is something you either are or are not. However, I guess as a means of shorthand, that "mostly" describes what I eat. But don't worry. I quit eating meat in middle school so I don't find it interesting to talk about nor do I care what you eat.
The six things I could never do without
I could probably live without most things except a GPS. I have a horrible sense of direction. More importantly, here are some things I could definitely do without:

the balance between hate and tolerance.

unapologetic ignorance.

goat cheese (I keep trying to like it, but it tastes like athlete 's foot and everyone thinks it's the most amazing thing and I'm a philistine for not liking it...I just don't need the hassle.)

emoticons (I hate the idea of them and what I assume about the type of person who would routinely use them but I know they can be tempting.)

the obsession with apple products (I get it. I have a lot of them, too, but who cares?)

small talk (that's primarily because I'm not good at it)

bathroom selfies (Come on now. What does that say about you?)

Birkenstocks (Most man sandals, for that matter. I have a real fear that I might start dating someone in the winter and not find out for months and then I'd have some serious soul searching to do.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what I am going to eat for dinner. to get rid of the static when I listen to NPR.
...why people say "irregardless". to get home when I'm lost.
....where writers get their inspiration.
...updating my resume. people can play multiple instruments and sing at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think inappropriate things are funny.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 30–48
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if're smart.'re opinionated, but can still have conversations and change your mind. like to do things just for the sake of doing them (especially outside things or things that require getting in the car and driving out of the city just to go somewhere new for a day). are sarcastic, or at least won't be offended by my excessive sarcasm. know a lot about music (I know some but I love discovering new music; not necessarily recently recorded, but new to me).'re just as happy staying in on a Saturday night as you are having a rowdy night out. don't have temper tantrums when shit happens (like if we break down in the middle of nowhere on the way to somewhere important... blah, blah, you get the point).
