My confidence may waver, but my pragmatism is softening and slowly turning to optimism even as the world seems to get worse each day. I go to bed way past my bedtime. I crave conversations that flow without effort. I can be cold, but still appreciate warmth.

I've always been enchanted with a lack of breeding and I'm far less photogenic than most people (I blame flash.)

Soft butch.
What I’m doing with my life
Account Management.
Consumption of media.

Entertaining your mother.

The six things I could never do without
my toes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
when my mundane tasks will start turning into film montages with a vintage soundtrack (right now, I'm thinking "doing dishes while Bruce Springsteen's 10th Avenue Freeze-Out plays.")
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably wondering if it's worth braving the weather.
If yes, dancing with friends.
If no, whiling away til the wee hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm looking to be someone's priority.
You should message me if
You don't mind that I'm a bit plain (I prefer to be called homely, but no one else does.) You are tall. You want to hear about farm life. You're proud of your work. You think flakiness is a cardinal sin. You would never dare use "renaissance man" to describe yourself. You have fond feelings for Northwestern. You enjoy the flirtation, but know how to close.

If we get one of those match emails from OKCupid, I'm probably giving you the go ahead. I won't be mean, I promise. Seriously.
