To ensure objectivity this profile has been written in
collaboration with my good friendmrugly83
. When I
switch between the first and third person speak, rest assured I'm
not going crazy, just poor at transitioning. Tamen used to be a
goth kid, fraternity brother(Kappa Sigma anyone?), volunteer and
student. Now he's just Tamen. Very open to challenging status quo
and popular belief. He moved here from the Midwest 3 years ago
after a two year stint in americorps. He just finished with college
here studying education and being very involved in campus
organizing and activities. Tamen stays fit climbing, riding bikes,
and is up for a game of wits as quick as a game of frisbee or
basketball. He likes to paint, read about differing philosophies
and current events and conversate about these things. Tamen has a
unique ability to discuss hot button issues and Entertain both
sides of an argument while keeping a level head. If you like to
discuss a range of topics from religion to politics and philosophy,
preferably over coffee, then find Tamen, hint, here he is.
What I’m doing with my life
Tamen is currently figuring out his post-college move, hoping to
find someone that stimulates his mind and can give direction to his
many random projects that currently occupy his time, from founding
political action groups, to making YouTube videos, volunteering,
and bike riding.
I’m really good at
entertaining people, sales, rock climbing, debate, ultimate

Tamen is not much of a bar gooer, unless you get him really drunk
or make it sound like, this time, it's a really good idea. If he's
not hanging with a friend, he'll be reading or hanging out with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just joined a dating website.
You should message me if
You're over the bar scene. Tamen could use someone who is most
importantly intellectually stimulating. Points of view being
aligned is not of highest priority but rather the ability to defend
and think critically about your own and others ideas. He tries to
be funny all the time which is, in and of itself, very funny at
times. Especially when he actually is funny. Then it's hilarious.
