My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My writing comes first, and always will. Honestly, most people can't handle that.

I'm knee-deep in my second book right now and I've decided to prioritize it over putting significant time into dating. Nonetheless I'm still interested in meeting new people if everything flows naturally.

So hit me up! Just because I haven't done the same for you yet doesn't mean I'm not interested.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a full-time author and editor who maintains a popular blog while working on my second book (and first novel). If you're interested in matters literary I'd be happy to discuss it, as well as YOUR favorite book, over coffee.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation: I've been thoroughly educated at some of the world's most elite institutions, but the greater portion of my education has come through passionate conversation with my fellow erudites (usually over coffee). Everyone brings a valuable perspective to even the thorniest philosophical questions -- I want to learn yours!

Hiking: See whether you can keep up on the trail.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My slender build, my Fabio hair, and my piercing blue eyes. If within hearing range, they probably wonder what that hippie is doing debating Hume.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

'Game of Thrones' isn't literature. It's a temporary and pornographic escape from the prison of cultural irony which is carefully crafted to put the reader right back into... the prison of cultural irony. Can we get over it already and move on to some Real Books(TM) already?

My library is constantly in flux (thanks, Berkeley!) but some stalwarts remain in place -- especially the finest novel of the English language, Frankenstein.

I also love reading modern (and post-modern) philosophy and histories of the ancient world.

I typically don't have time for films, but I will comment that "Aliens" is the best screenplay ever written, at least within its genre (how does one compare it to, say, My Dinner with Andre, anyway?).

I seem to be missing out on a true Renaissance of American television, but I don't own a TV (who does anymore?) and I'd rather spend my time reading and writing than finding shows online.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Books to write
2. Books to read
3. The dance of sacred flame
4. Forests
5. Conversation
6. Conviction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Plot structures; tracking phases of intersecting, dynamic characters; the history of the Mediterranean basin; the pervasiveness of evil (as defined by Levinas/Badiou).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If not writing, then either at a house party with friends or camped under the stars somewhere in this breathtaking state.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been in a relationship before.

you have something to say more thoughtful than 'hey.'
