My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a college student, occasional rabble-rouser, avid reader, and classic sitcom aficionado (seriously, if you need that topic covered for your bar trivia night, I'm your guy). I like to laugh and make jokes that generally don't make any sense. If you're willing to overlook that, I'm a pretty friendly guy.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm studying International Relations and working to learn Arabic. I would like to work for the State Department or an NGO. I want to travel, see the world, and all that. My fallback is to be a bitter high school English teacher that tries to convince my students that their only choice in life is to work and die in the local coal mine. It's a zero sum game for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Speaking eloquently about the meaning of books I haven't read. Thanks, college!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Long hair? I've actually been told by several people that I do this thing where I smile to myself for no apparent reason like I'm laughing at a private joke and that kind of makes me sound interesting and mysterious, right? I'm going to say that's what people notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm on a non-fiction kick right now, histories mostly. I also ended a two year long feminist, marxist, queer theory phase in my reading. A lot of titles were good from then, but every gay/bi man should read The Politics and Poetics of Camp. I heart it. For a general list of my favorites: Never Let Me Go, Cloud Atlas, We the Living (I'm not a Rand devotee by any stretch, but I think it's genuinely good), The Politics of Sex, The Picture of Dorian Gray (I AM a Wilde devotee), Their Eyes Were Watching God, Revolutionary Road, and To the Lighthouse.

Movies: Heathers, Soapdish, She Devil, Death Becomes Her, Doubt, Harold and Maude, Brideshead Revisited, Revolutionary Road, anything Meryl Streep has ever been in, Steel Magnolias, Troop Beverly Hills, and anything sufficiently campy.

Music: Animal Collective, Bright Eyes, Death Cab, Postal Service, Tom Waits, Frank Sinatra, Grizzly Bear, The Fratellis, The Strokes, The Beatles, M. Ward, Kimya Dawson, Moderato, Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Jake Bugg, Ani Difranco, Belle and Sebastian, Bob Dylan, Cat Power, The Decemberists, Flight of the Conchords, The Hush Sound, The Moldy Peaches, Scissor Sisters

Food: Licorice Jelly Beans, and Coffee
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order: chinese food, Netflix, books, my mp3 player, my bike, and sarcasm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I could have any super power it would be the ability to recast any movie as I see fit. I could make any terrible movie awesome. Just take any movie about a loose-cannon cop on the run and replace the lead with Jessica Walters. Shit's getting watched.

Meryl Streep, Jessica Lange, and Bonnie Hunt would basically be in every movie.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Glass of wine and an endless series of Wikipedia pages.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In 2010 a friend and I crashed a Tea Party rally in downtown Chicago and went under the aliases Tucker Beauregard and Helen LeBeautre. We carried signs that read "Hey, Obama, If You Love SOCIALISM So Much, Why Don't You Marry It???" and "No, I Will Not Make Out With You, Obama". We made BFFLs with a 79 year-old birther, but had to leave around the time the guy with the megaphone called gay people "sexual deviants" and the one rally participant with any sense of irony figured out our ruse.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're still reading, you're probably good people. First messages can be hard, so here's a tip: I like to start my conversations in medias res: let's pretend the "Hey. You seem cool. What's up?" is already out of the way.
