My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, not sure what to write here, so I'll try to keep it short and sweet:

Where to begin... I was born in the Year of the Monkey, a twin (fraternal), at exactly 8:30 a.m. (I only know this because I was a minute older than my brother Keith.)

Hmm, that's probably too far back for a profile description. Let me skip ahead: I graduated Cum Laude from Mizzou, with a Bachelor's in Finance.

Skip ahead further to present day and you'll find me gainfully employed in the field of Corporate Finance for a Fortune 500 company.

Skip back some years and you'll find me, broke, selling plasma twice a week during college, or reading at my work study job in Ellis Library, all the while contemplating my future as a bestselling novelist...

I could do this back and forth for a while, but I'll stop and get to the point:

I'm an active, creative guy who has grown a bit disenchanted with the STL scene. Not terribly so, but given that it seems I've done and seen it all in this locale, OkCupid seems like a fun way to meet interesting people. I also kinda like the idea of sparking a conversation with someone new while we're both moderately sober, and without needing to shout over bar music just to hear one another.

Aside from my day job, I'm an author with one novel under my belt, and am presently working on my second book.

If interested, you can check out my first book here:

[Apparently that link doesn't work. Rather than take it down I'll just tell you what novel to look up on Amazon: Continuous Life by Kevin Adams.]

I'm specifically interested in meeting a girl who reads for fun (or at least watches movies, or has interests/hobbies of some kind that can be discussed/participated in together). If she happens to like my writing, and wants to talk about my work, that would be a dream come true as far as ideal girlfriends go (but it's not a deal breaker; more like a far-fetched fantasy of mine...). Perhaps she'll even inspire me? For all we know there could be some ancient, mythological Greek muse shit at play... (If your name is Calliope, we should meet.)

Let's see, what else can I tell you... I guess I've done some interesting things during my time here on earth, including backpacking across Europe at 17, living in Paris one college summer (having minored in French), SCUBA diving in Hawaii and the Caribbean, et cetera.

Now, though, I am constantly on the hunt for new, exciting things to do in my hometown of STL, and often left wanting (well, technically my hometown is Hillsboro, and I currently live in Brentwood, but the simpler the better--although I just realized my parenthetical asides do not simplify matters...)

Other basic information about me: I'm 6'4", 210 lbs, athletic build. Brown eyes and hair (if that wasn't obvious). Good sense of humor and IQ of 140 (am prepared to submit official documentation verifying the former).

I'm generally an empathetic, charitable, considerate person. I try to subscribe to the Golden Rule: Do unto others and all that (though I'm not religious in any traditional sense).

I love literature, movies, stand-up comedy, music, family, friends, and my dog Baxter.

It's fair to say I have relatively high standards, but don't we all? I'm not shallow by any stretch, but I know what I like.

Anyway, hope you found these snippets about myself utterly riveting. If so, shoot me an email and we'll get to know each other better. If you weren't enthralled, feel free to message me and we'll discuss possible revisions over dinner.

If you want to know anything else, just ask (or aggressively demand it, if that's how you roll...).

I'll shut up now, but I do hope to hear from some cool, fun, smart, funny, attractive women.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading and writing and drinking and partying and dating and swimming and biking and working and traveling and laughing...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not to be immodest but I give a mean massage...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall. I hear that a lot. In fact, nearly every acquaintance who hasn't seen me in a while says this upon seeing me again: "Are you still growing!?"

I hope not...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Regarding music, I'm a fan of all genres: Alternative, Hip Hop, R&B, Heavy Metal, Punk, Oldies, et cetera... I don't limit myself to any one style, which I imagine is the case for most people. To list a few favorites off the top of my head: Eminem, Alicia Keys, The Pharcyde, Tupac, Third Eye Blind, Rage Against the Machine, Guns and Roses, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Something Corporate, The Format, Weezer, Neutral Milk Hotel, Dashboard Confessional, The Decemberists, Beck, Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys, White Stripes, Sublime, Nirvana, et cetera... I'm a big fan of the band 311, try and see them whenever they come to town; I saw them last at Riverport Amphitheatre (I still call Verizon Amphitheatre by its original name), and am always up for a good concert.

I'm a huge fan of stand-up comedy. I saw Louis C.K. and Daniel Tosh live back-to-back in the same weekend, to give you an idea how much I love stand-up. Other comedians I've seen live include Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Mike Birbiglia, Dave Attell, and the late George Carlin.

I try to limit my TV intake, but I do DVR/download/Hulu/Netflix some of my favorites like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, South Park, The Simpsons, Futurama, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, True Blood, Scrubs, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It's Always Sunny, Seinfeld, The Walking Dead, Scandal, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, Sherlock, Downton Abby, Parks and Rec... Unfortunately the list is longer than I care to admit.

I'm an avid reader, with my literary tastes spanning the full spectrum from F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Ray Bradbury, John Updike, Philip Roth, Thomas Pynchon to Stephen King, Douglas Coupland, Christopher Pike, Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris, Kate Atkinson...

As for favorite food, I'd have to say my favorite food is food.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, reading, on a date--all at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This seems like a dangerous topic for people trying to make a good first impression before ever having met...

Okay, if you must know something: I will cry--hard--during a powerful movie or book, but only in private, and only if it's REALLY potent. I literally had to get up and leave the room while watching Big Fish with a girlfriend...

  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 22–35
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This one's mainly for girls, right? I mean, not to sound bitter, but I'm pretty sure the dynamic is that the girls sit back and sift through a flooded inbox, whereas the guys spend considerable chunks of time casting out lines, hoping for a bite...

If I were to answer this honestly, I would say "You should message me if you're comfortable with the concept of online dating (by which I mean, forget about the perceived "stigma" already; as far as I'm concerned the stigma is either attached to online dating by outsiders who've never even tried it, or it's wholly inside one's own head), and you should message me if you are not averse to an in-person, brief meeting--in a public place--sometime in the near future. Could be as simple as a cup of coffee or a beer. I just think it's important not to waste each other's time. We should find out if there's in-person attraction/chemistry before we spend three weeks messaging back and forth..."
