My self-summary
As I write this, I've just landed in St. Louis after four years in San Francisco. I went to Wash U, but I'm looking to meet new people and explore a bit. It's a big city! Well, okay, not really. But there's a lot of it that's still new to me.

Also that means that, for the moment, I'm sans vehicle (never needed one in SF). I'll buy one soon, but it seems like a fair warning to give in a dating situation.

Other stuff? I fell in love with snowboarding (which makes it really dumb that I moved to the Midwest again!). I cannot be trusted with chocolate milk or Imo's Pizza. Desperate to travel more than I have in the past (going to Korea/Japan in the spring!).
What I’m doing with my life
I run the customer service team at a small tech company that will be moving its offices to the Lou early next year -- and by team, I mean there are two of us (for now!). Hiring another soon, though. We're still tiny, but growing! Exciting stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, sarcastic, shaved head. I don't know. This seems like it's a question for you, not me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything/everything by Haruki Murakami, Infinite Jest, East of Eden. I don't read as much as I should or as much as I used to. Trying to fix that. Just started Gravity's Rainbow. We'll see how it goes.

Shows: I watch my beloved St. Louis Cardinals on my computer almost daily during the season. Otherwise, I'm the guy who doesn't get everyone's Arrested Development references. Currently the only contemporary shows I'm caught up on are Sherlock and Game of Thrones.

Music: Used to be into rock in my angsty youth, but I've mellowed out a lot. Lately: Bastille, Imagine Dragons, Everything Everything, X Ambassadors, Nine Inch Nails, Magic Man, and an unabashed love of Top 40s pop.

Food: I love sandwiches and Korean food. Bibimbap is my desert island food. Mushrooms are gross. I'll try most anything and people who won't weird me out.
The six things I could never do without
I'm only doing three of these, because I'm a renegade.

1. My phone -- Typical millenial. Pretty reliant on my phone for directions and podcasts and so forth. Especially since I don't really know my way around STL.

2. My baseball glove -- I don't use it much these days (particularly since my throwing shoulder is kinda busted), but in thinking about which of my possessions I'd least like to lose, it came to mind. It would make me sad not to own a glove, particularly my glove from college. Feel free to psychoanalyze that.

3. Body pillows -- FUCK YES body pillows are the best. They are gigantic and soft and you can spoon with them.

I have lots of other things I'm attached to or use every day (my computer, some old pictures, my snowboard), but almost nothing that would really crush me if it disappeared in an apartment fire or something. Most stuff can be replaced. You can't take it with you!

I guess it would suck to lose all of my clothes, though. Why can't I back my clothes up to the cloud? Get on it, Dropbox.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I can't type a goddamn em dash with a normal button on my keyboard. It's 2013! Give me an em dash key you bastards!

On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully eating some sort of delicious food at a restaurant with friends. Failing that, hopefully hanging with said friends later on, either at someone's house, or at a bar, or whatever. I am likely to be drinking, because I do that "socially," like it says over on the side there.

If it's a quieter night, maybe a movie or cooking dinner or something more low-key. I suppose I might be on a date, also. That's what this thing is for, right? You should probably message me so that I can be on a date, maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find writing messages on OkCupid totally exhausting. So if you got one from me, I'm probably napping. Shit's stressful and I overthink it like whoa.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like to explore the city and find the local treasures, because that's what I intend to do. New restaurants, dive bars, clubs (the less snooty, the better), live music venues. If you like to have a good time in either hiking boots or high heels, we'll get along.
