My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Comments from women I have dated:
"Well, at least he's not a creep."
"Intermittently attentive and oblivious."
"If he ever needs a character witness, I would happily testify that Stephen is one colorful character."
"A witty conversationalist with an endearing heart."

Self-summary (Oh, that was the question)
I am (or, at least think of myself as) confident but not cocky, highly educated but not pretentious, accommodating but not passive, irreverent but not insulting, and highly analytical and inquisitive. And I have very high standards of ethics, integrity, and morality. I am looking for an intelligent, fun, somewhat unconventional woman who gets me for a long-term relationship. And she needs to be someone from whom I can learn, and someone with whom I can learn, as I find the best conversations are those in which I learn something, anything really. But I am not looking for frequent deep philosophical or political discussions. I crave witty banter.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Usually, slouched down on my old smelly couch, watching NASCAR and yelling at the tv, emptying my umpteenth can of beer of the day, then crunching the can against my forehead and tossing it over my shoulder, while energetically belching, scratching, and grinning in deep self-satisfaction about how cool my life is.

Other times, I read voraciously, including history, silly fiction, and serious fiction. I love my work, but I seldom work long hours. I have published a couple of dozen articles in economic and legal journals, but I much prefer writing humorous short stories. I currently am working on producing a play I wrote, an alternative history / dark comedy, that will be performed at the 2015 DC Capital Fringe Festival.

I exercise at least an hour per day, most frequently at the gym and on the bicycle trails. I also enjoy exploring the DC area, with all of its rich history, architecture, and natural beauty. And I do volunteer teaching of a class at a DC YWCA to high-school dropouts for their GED tests. I have travelled to 20 countries and 35 states.

I have two very cool kids, Alex (23) and Sophie (20), who live in Colorado and Michigan. Sophie is my very best friend in the world and my Chief Dating Advisor, so be forewarned: she at some point will be judging your dating profile!

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are a very silly person. I mean, uh, not that it would be silly to contact me. Quite the contrary, it might be a great decision. I mean that we will get along particularly well if you are a silly person.
