My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I am is opinionated, outspoken, a little brash, frustratingly impulsive, and sometimes inappropriate. I often contradict myself, because I often say the first thing that pops into my head. Im OK with that. I think I'm way smarter than I actually am, which a guy who got straight C's in high school has no right to be. I was a late bloomer. I have a legit fear of phones, computers, and kindles. I like print, with words on actual paper. I love the smell of books and baseball gloves, and I'm outside as much as possible. I climb trees. I watch black and white movies, English football, and Star Trek. I love space, and if I could add, I'd be an astrophysicist. I read comic books like a champ, and real books even better. I have 4 guitars, a keyboard, a harmonica, and I suck at all of them. I just got a Ukulele, and I'm garbage at that, too, so don't invite me to sit in with your band (unless you wanna rock!). Indiana is my favorite state in the Union. I like loud rock concerts and quiet jazz clubs. I love going to the ballet, and I'm straight. Crowds give me anxiety attacks. I'm very shy, until I get to the point where I won't shut up. Annnd, now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Whatever I want, because I'm an adult. Watching a lot of movies. Making a lot of movies. Teaching 3 yr olds how to play soccer, all the while, looking like little drunk people. Exploring. Getting lost. Finding my way back.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making mistakes. Saying dumb things, and possibly alienating myself in the process. I apologize, in advance. Reading your profile, from cover to cover. Getting along with 3 year olds. Brooding like Tom Hardy in Warrior. Falling asleep between sips of tea and swallowing, which also doubles as a good way to wake myself back up. Constantly injuring myself. Knocking things over. Cleaning up your apartment, even if you don't want me to. Not learning French. Analyzing superman movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most of my best friends tell me they either hated me, or were terrified of me when we first met. (It can be hard to get a full on smile out of me, I admit. But when you do - look out!) Then they found out it's all an act, and I'm actually a halfway decent guy, and some might even say charming, in that Jack Nicholson in the Shining kind of way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You may now scroll all the way down past all of this rubbish, because, honestly, who really gives a shit? Are we really gonna get along any better because we both like French film noirs or listen to Jenny Lewis? Probably not. It is mostly for my own enjoyment of making lists. Unless, of course, you're incredibly bored. Food for thought, I guess.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
WTF w/ Marc Maron
A dictionary
Friday night extended museum hours
Film noir/B Sci Fi movies from the 50s
Stage floorboards
My English football addiction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being more like Lloyd Dobler. What life would've been like if I had stayed in grad school. Why/how "watching Netflix" has become a thing to do. Leaving New York City, once and for all. Playing chess. Bowling. Stand up comedy sets. Being on stage. Playing outside.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Nerding it up at the library. Watching a classic film screening at the NY Historical Society as the only person under 50 yrs old in attendance. Any of the free museum hours in the city. Watching the Hoosiers kick Big Ten ass. Rehearsing for a play/movie. Elbowing nerds at Midtown Comics out of the way so I can get to MY comic books. Sitting outside of Grant's Tomb or the Natural History Museum, staring at the illuminated planetarium, saluting Roosevelt's statue, meditating on my existence, and hoping nobody robs me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I stayed back my senior year in high school for a girl. Voluntarily. The absolute dumbest thing I've ever done. . . I'd probably do it again, because I'm a sucker.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You ignore our matchability and you just dig differences in people. If you're fun, and you can make me laugh, then that's a match for me. It helps if you're a bit of a weirdo and a little nutty. Disclaimer!! - If you're a serial texter who has no real ambition to go out and meet people (they exist by the shipload, apparently), then please DO NOT respond. No flakes and last minute canceled dates, please. I don't want to text for a week, only for you to pull a vanishing act. Its really annoying, and a huge waste of my time. Sorry. I'm not a douche.
