My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here are a few facts about me:

1. I like to take up new hobbies from time to time, but a few have kept my interest for many years: tennis, reading, creative writing, and Sid Meier's Civilization. I run a lot, but I don't think it counts as a hobby, because it's a means to an important end.
2. There's a lot about DC I love, but I kind of wish I were living in the bay area.
3. Good food and quality drinks comprise most of my monthly expenses, aside from rent, utilities, and trips.
4. I am from St. Louis, which has amazing urban parks, a pretty good craft beer scene, and a huge arch.
5. I love skiing, hiking, and drinking in the mountains, even though I'm from somewhere that is very flat.
6. I think a man without religion is like a fish without a bicycle.
7. I grow hot peppers on my balcony.
8. I like to make lists.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Bike commuting! It's a way of life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
hitting a two-handed backhand with spin and making rosemary lemon gin fizzes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My curly hair, or that I'm possibly like three minutes late to meet them. (Not more than five, I'm not a monster.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I feel put on the spot, so off the top of my head, Lawrence Wright, George Orwell, Neil Gaiman, Alison Bechdel, Lionel Shriver, John Le Carre, George Eliot, Jonathan Spence, Donna Tartt. The best novels I've read in the last year were The Middlesteins by Jami Attenburg and Olive Kitteredge by Elizabeth Strout.

TV: Arrested Development and The Wire, obviously. I like them both, but I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is brilliant, while Seinfeld was funny. I'm a sucker for almost anything (except Girls) on HBO -- particularly Veep and Thrones. House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are both great, and I am totally loving Transparent. Jeffrey Tambor deserves every award they can give him.

Movies: Woody Allen--whatever else he may be, he's a movie-making genius. The Lives of Others, Sneakers, Amelie, Searching for Sugarman, His Girl Friday, Charlie Wilson's War, Ghostbusters, Best in Show, Nebraska. I am done going to Wes Anderson movies and hoping they'll actually be as good as people claim they are.

Podcasts: Ronna and Beverly, Julie Klausner, Dead Authors Podcast, Comedy Bang Bang, This American Life, Fresh Air.

Food: Anything good, particularly if it's spicy and/or involves fresh fruit.

For music, I like Tune Yards, Aimee Mann, Vampire Weekend, Elliott Smith, St. Vincent, Bon Iver, Of Monsters and Men, Liz Phair, Radiohead, Brad Mehldau, Charles Mingus, Dvorak, Beethoven, and lots more, but I'm actually getting sick of making lists!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why okcupid thinks I'm such a bitch. (Check out my personality graph!) Don't believe it; okcupid is a gossipy jerk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
waiting in line to get into either Marvin or The Brixton wearing four inch heels and a shirt with no pants. So much fun, you guys.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't know to what the phrase "Oxford comma" referred until I started looking around on okcupid. For the legions of you who feel strongly about it, I used it without knowing what it was called, so just stand down.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a good guy, you're a grown-up, you have something interesting to say, and/or you want to play tennis.

Please DO NOT message me if you are (1) outside of my age range in either direction; (2) in an open relationship/ looking for a third; or (3) someone who would describe himself as "traditional," particularly with respect to gender roles.
