My self-summary
A well-traveled, well-read nerd, I live in a small house in North Minneapolis. I work a small job for an overly large online retailer.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a vaguely enjoyable job at a local corporation. I spend a lot of my spare time attending local music (pop and classical), playing go with friends, discussing ideas that compel me, and hanging out on my porch with a cocktail and a book.
The first things people usually notice about me
My bow ties usually stand out in a crowd.

The six things I could never do without
Refried Beans (black or pinto)
The rest are standard basic for high level primate survival: friends, shelter and such, but seriously, Beans and Gin. Not to be mixed together until ingested.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ethics, economics, metaphysics, politics, music and almost anything that will distract me from getting things taken care of around the house.
On a typical Friday night I am
Three activities generally split my Fridays. First rock shows, genre non specific popular un-popular music at small venues. Next, house parties with friends usually small numbers. Next, and most importantly, holing up in my study, porch or bedroom with a book, hiding from the humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't drive currently as I am a lapsed epileptic who has about one seizure a year. I bike and use mass transit. This is important as people outside of the city limits probably won't end up being a good match for me.

Also I have a pedantic streak that ends up leading me to be morally opposed to spelling "synch" as "sync" and other such things.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–37
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I am rather interested in picking up Argentine Tango again. I was once not horrible, but would be now as it has been many years since last I danced formally. If you are seriously interested in picking up tango, do let me know.

You find me interesting and might want to meet me, send me a quick message. It'd be great to meet some one new; if chatting leads to something more I would be doubly pleased. Extra points go to those willing to take turns flipping records when cuddling. Additionally I am usually looking for a date to the orchestra, so if you enjoy getting a bit dressed up and listening to strings for an evening do let me know.
