I'm a good guy looking to be great for a good girl. So let's go. Tell me where:
I've got a graduate degree, a solid job, live in a cool neighborhood; didn't I hit the superficial yuppie trifecta? :)
Fine, truth is, I'm bored. I swear to God, Allah, or the prophet of your choice that I'm fun, funny, and absolute boyfriend-material.
And this is undoubtedly juvenile, but maybe you've got the same slice of humor as me, and so you respect my efforts to amuse myself at work:
That said, who wants to come to Salvation Army on H Street NE with me on a Wednesday (50% off clothes), and we can drink some beers on H Street and you can help me choose ties?
I don’t care what you do, but I do have a thing for smart chicks. I’d love to meet a nice girl and go hiking in Rock Creek Park. I want to go with you on a night-time monument tour. Or go mini-golfing. Let's locate a volunteer activity to do together that actually makes some kind of difference. Let's play tennis. Or go bowling.
Apparently every woman in the DC area is sarcastic and probably looking for somebody to "explore the city" with ("partner-in-crime," anyone? We’re all looking for the proverbial partner-in-crime, with whom any stupid activity is genuinely fun just for the company). And, we all think we're "sarcastic."
I get up way too early 3 mornings a week for my running club, “Back On My Feet” ("a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless"; http://dc.backonmyfeet.org/dc-landing.html). And truthfully, I don't feel all that politically active, but my boss suggested I check out “Drinking Liberally,” and when I learned DC had no chapter, I co-started one. And you should come!
Even if not that political, I do like to write, and when Facebook published a list of the “40 Most Shared Political Articles” on all of Facebook in 2011, one of my Huffington Post comedy pieces was #11, and I thought that was pretty cool: http://allfacebook.com/facebook-political-articles_b70575
I dare you to message me, tell me to buy you a beer (or margaritas?) tomorrow, and then tomorrow drink your beer and tell me about you.
