My self-summary
So I did the silly snap poll thing and asked a few friends how they would describe me. This is some of what they said.

“Loves having fun and playing poker. Oh! Also you like New York.”

"You're ghetto to the White House. You can dress it up or dress it down."

"You watch Downtown Abbey EVERY Sunday without fail... I don't care if there's a death in the family!"

(That last one is a falsehood. I've never seen that show, but I have snarky friends who find online dating amusing.)
What I’m doing with my life
A little over ten years ago I threw my belongings into my car and drove to DC, couch surfed until I had an apartment and found a job. I now work in politics/government. While I don't talk about it all the time to everyone, I still care about progressive causes and the Democratic party.
I’m really good at
Evading questions that ask me to brag about my positive attributes. That said, I think I'm a dedicated if not talented poker player, a decent pool shot, and can swear creatively. I used to be able to check other people in "ultimate frisbee" and use their momentum to catch the disc before it hit the ground. (Rough, manly sport, I know). I make a decent pasta salad. I am told I am a good writer, but not sure it translates to dating sites. I make funny (yet inappropriate) gchat jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm. Some people have said I look a bit like Leonardo DiCaprio. Then again, I've also gotten Louie Anderson. If there's a spectrum with Leonardo DiCaprio on one end and Louie Anderson on the other, I'm somewhere in between.

Maybe this is just a bad question all around.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music -- only Yanni, honestly.

Kidding. I could play music library, but let's just say brit pop, indie, punk rock, and some guilty pleasure top 40 stuff. I like Radiohead a lot. These days I'm pretty open minded on music. The last good show I saw was the Dismemberment Plan at the 9:30 Club. Going to live music is something I want to do more often.

Books: Most things by Michael Chabon. Game of Thrones (books - haven't watched the HBO series but hear it is decent). John LeCarre. Hunter S. Thompson. Middlesex. Donna Tartt. Tom Perotta. Chuck Klosterman. David Sedaris. I tried to read the Corrections. I really, really tried. I'm sorry.

Food: steak, french, Greek, Thai, Indian, BBQ and most things spicy. I put Tabasco on most everything. I dislike beets immensely. If that's a deal breaker, so be it.

Flicks: have a thing for mob movies. Also quirky indie films. Anything by Coen Bros. Life is Beautiful. Rushmore. Rounders. Political/social documentaries. Honestly, more of a Netflix person than a theater goer, but once in a while munching popcorn and slurping soda next to strangers in the dark is relaxing. (Hopefully while watching a movie.)
The six things I could never do without
Saturdays at a farmers' market. The rush from when a plane takes off or lands somewhere new. Poker. The Ocean. The Lion Cub Cam from the National Zoo.

(Yeah, yeah. Family and friends, too.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether this guy's on to something when it comes to online dating.

My next weekend adventure to NYC, AC, MIA or NOLA.

Why, on OK Cupid, there seems to be such a strong correlation between people interested in polyamory and medieval festivals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes having an ice cold beer at a quiet bar, possibly hitting a show, often playing cards, occasionally out dancing and, at least monthly, boarding a train or plane to somewhere fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Patience, Grasshopper. We'll get there.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like poker or pool or you think we'd be able to have a laugh over a drink. You don't view this website as a forum for endless email exchanges and would consider meeting up.

I recently won a $15 gift certificate to a local bar in a free poker tournament. They have 25 cent wings. If you think a good date idea is going there to purchase 60 wings, let me know. While I don't actually think this is a good date idea, if you do, I'm interested in knowing you.

Getting all serious like, I tend to click with women who are passionate about their chosen direction in life, self aware and comfortable around a wide range of people.
