My self-summary
I really get sick of always having to send the first message on this site. I think I'm pretty much done doing it. Not worth the effort. Message me I'll respond.

Hi, I'm Sam. Young dude in a good place enjoying my youth as much as I can. I have a degree in Philosophy and it might seem obvious if you talk to me. I've been described as "pensive". Textbook INTJ for all you Myers-Briggs folk.

Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
What I’m doing with my life
I am generally in a very good place. I work for a charity organization which helps uninsured people get medical care. I train Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and I go to a lot of concerts.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many girls on here mention how much they love Netflix in their profile. Netflix is cool, but why would you bring it up on your dating site profile?
