Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Even if it makes others uncomfortable,
I will love who I am."

I’m the guy that uses semicolons in text messages, and the same one
that couldn't start his college papers without a good font and
leading. It's important my voice is heard in the right context, I
For a number of reasons (chief among them: paying far too much
attention to everything), I try hard at about everything I do.
Nothing else really makes sense. However, I'm also fairly mellow
about things. It's weird.
I like snarky women who are a little androgynous and have
butts, like: if you'd race me in
tree-climbing, while creatively trash-talking in a sundress, I'd
probably just marry you.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
✓ The people on the CTA that avoid bunching up inches shy of the
doors, and don't sit on the outside edge of an otherwise empty
✓ Headphones capable of blocking out the entirety of the world
while at work. Well, mostly that talkative guy behind me.
✓ New experiences with loyal people. Often, when I go out, I
feel I run into nothing but couples. Anyone else have that
✓ Pretzel buns.
✓ A sense of agency. I live by the rule that there are at least two
ways to do any given thing. As such: feminism isn't a bad
✓ Viewers like you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When fingering someone, it's generally accepted as a poor time to
bring up puppetry. But come on…
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oh, shit. Oh, shit. Look cool...
Uh, probably toppling a terrorist organization, discovering a world
between the dimensions we know, or saving the Battlestar from

like a wand, and saying, “Accio, bagel”.
So, in short: I’m a wizard.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
✓ Logan Square is easily accessible. I’ve got a Ventra card and my
bike. They'll get me most places, but I’d hope to avoid an hour
commute every time I want to see you.
✓ You have no qualms about being a nerd. Its sincerity and
vulnerability is attractive. And I seem to have a thing for
scientists and teachers.
✓ You're fine with me not drinking—I'm not recovering, just never
felt the need to start. #DARE
✓ Did I already mention big butts?
