My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intellectually curious, beer-loving, NPR-listening, Economist-reading, bike-riding, rugby-playing, surprisingly sufferable know-it-all.

I'm a surprisingly good dancer for a white boy, and a shockingly good snuggler. Auto-correct wanted me to brag about my smuggling abilities, but I haven't run coke since the 80's.

I have traveled to over 25 countries. So, there's only something like 170 more to go. I've also been to 46 of the United States; I'm okay with never visiting Nebraska.

Music is an extraordinarily large part of my life, especially considering I have no musical talent whatsoever. Same goes with visual arts.

My hipster friends call me a yuppie; my yuppie friends call me a hipster.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent two years as a corporate attorney in Big Law and hated damn near every second of it.

Now, I'm a journalist. I love it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
useless trivia. My quizzo skills are world renown. Sadly, useless trivia is about as valuable as anything else with the word "useless" in its name.

Additionally: inadvertently offending people. Like, I'm the kind of guy that would say "Man, there sure are a lot of dogs on OKCupid" to a (virtual) room of girls on OKCupid, thinkingly only about that statement literally (seriously, lots of you have puppies), and being blithely unaware of the negative connotations people took.
The first things people usually notice about me

that I'm probably yelling (but not angrily - excitedly). Perhaps at them. Generally, I'm quite loud and animated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books:
Things by: Nietzsche, Camus, McLuhan, Locke, a few other philosophers, Shakespeare.

Fiction: Lolita, Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Catch-22, One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest, Crime and Punishment, White Teeth (I don't read enough fiction, and rarely new fiction). I read almost every Tom Clancy novel in middle school and early high school, because that cold war spy shit is fucking badass when you're 15.

What I read the most these days: the inky, The Economist, my alumni magazines, historical biographies, histories, and books on behavioral economics, sociology, social psychology and the such.

Movies/TV: I don't go to the movies often and don't watch a ton of TV. Game of Thrones is the first series since The Wire to hook me into regular viewing.

Food: I love damn near everything and enjoy trying new things all the time. Except for tripe - that shit is gross.

Music: generally the stuff you'll hear on All Songs Considered, WXPN, KEXP and classical (Classical, Romantic and Modern; not so much Baroque - it's the bad 80's hair metal of classical music, except shredding guitar solos are replaced by stuffy harpsichord solos).
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
public policy, Philadelphia, sports, writing, aesthetics and the meaning of life. In about that order, too.

When I'm on here, I do wonder about 3 things:
1. Why so many girls have a picture of them in zombie makeup. Are some guys into the decaying look? Is necrophilia in these days?
2. How so many girls apparently have professional photographers following them around. My shots are all way lame comparatively.
3. I also don't get the fake mustache thing. I'm not into hirsute women or old time-y curly 'staches. Why is this a thing?
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've been arrested. In Tijuana. And then deported.

you live in Philadelphia.
To be brutally clear: I most likely will not respond if you live outside Philadelphia. But I will feel guilty about not responding.

Because people keep asking: it's more than mere logistics. If you are relatively young and unattached, yet decide to live a car dependent, detached life in the burbs, then we clearly have a different set of interests.

Also, regardless of your romantic inclinations, if you have something terribly interesting to say. I'm always looking for new stories.
