My self-summary
I'm a laid back guy, and I am looking for a laid back girl who will like me for who I am. I like to think of myself as kind of a quirky, hopeless romantic, meaning I am somewhat awkward if you don't know me, but I'm really a a unique guy who likes all different types of girls. I may turn up on your front lawn one day with a boombox hoisted above my head with Peter Gabriel blaring, "Say Anything" style. I have made many a mix CD in my 32 years on this earth. I really like doing sweet things for girls that I like. If you're open to the idea of being doted upon, I'm your guy.

What I look for in a partner:

1) You should be awesome

2) You should be passionate about at least one thing. It can be anything: literature, theatre, art, design, cinema, comedy, writing, marijuana decriminalization, I don't care, as long as there is at least one thing in your life that you are really into.

3) You should be kind at heart.

4) You should not be banned from any countries in the European Union.

5) You should not be the subject of any songs by Weezer or any of Rivers Cuomo's side projects.

Most of all, you just need to be a cool girl who will like me for me. And if you like bad emo from the early 2000's, that doesn't hurt either. (We could duet on the entirety of "The Swiss Army Romance".)
What I’m doing with my life
What am I doing with my life? Living it the best I can and the only way I know how. I like to think that I'm continually learning and bettering myself. I appreciate the small things and I'm also a big proponent that a small gesture or tiny act of kindness can go a long way.
I’m really good at
• Remebering the minutia from a conversation we had on our first date.
• Amassing a lot of somewhat obscure and generally not-useful information about the American Theatre.
• Knowing my stuff when it comes to rock and roll, literature, and pop culture.
• Empathy.
• I've been told my handwriting is spot on, but I swear I have some form of penmanship dysmorphia, so when I look at something I've written, it looks like chicken scratch.
• Wrapping presents.
• General organization. (My project folders at work are a thing of beauty.)
• Recognizing the hidden beauty in people.
• Cuddling. (I prefer to be the big spoon, but I'm open to all forms that cuddling may take.)
• Rooting for the underdog.
• Getting along with dogs and small children.
• Making a good impression on parents and grandparents.
• Retaining large amounts of technical information.
• Navigating my way around cities across the US of A by means of Uber and public transit. (..and having my travels cost less than renting a car.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses. And my bad ass white man 'fro if I haven't gotten a haircut in a while.

The six things I could never do without
1) Site
2) Sound
3) The ability to get from point A to point B in a somewhat time efficient manner.
4) Water
5) Oxygen
6) Trees
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, art, literature, design, lighting, pretty faces....
On a typical Friday night I am
Let's see, in the last year I've started to see a movie pretty much every Friday night, so there's that..... I can be found at a good off-broadway show sometimes..... Out with friends at various eating and drinking establishments throughout the five boroughs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you can articulate your thoughts in a grammatically pleasing way and you do this consistently, I'm putty in your hands. Smart girls are the most attractive girls.

I was once listening to a podcast where comedian Marc Maron was interviewing Diablo Cody, and she was talking about how she met her first husband on a Beach Boys fan board back in the day when small fan boards existed on the internet. She said one of the reasons she was into him was that he had the "Smile" bootleg and she wanted in. (Of course "Smile" is a Brian Wilson joint sans the boys of beach. I digress...)

I kind of want this to be my story of meeting someone. It's incredibly idealistic and I think wonderful. (I think that's kind of embarrassing to admit.)**

**Since I wrote this I've read Diablo's memoir, ("Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper"), and it turns out that the aforementioned story changes a bit from telling to telling. I'm going to go with the version I've recalled above from WTF.
You should message me if
You're awesome, and you think I may have the ability to be awesome as well.
