My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty easy to make laugh, and often crack dumb jokes. I just can't help myself. I like having a beer in a bar with a good jukebox but I hate crowded clubs, unless a really good band is playing. I make a great travel companion.

I don't need to be impressed by your music collection or knowledge of 70's cinema, but I will enjoy learning about and discussing whatever moves you. I have very strong political opinions and have devoted my life to something I believe in, but I hate electoral politics and tend to avoid much of the public debate. With that said, I am decidedly and unapologetically about as left as you can get. I'm a fantastic dinner party guest. Oh, and I spend much more time in friends' kitchens and living rooms than in bars these days.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a public defender. And yes, night court is just like the TV show. In all seriousness, I have my dream job. I love being a trial attorney and I love fighting for my clients. I also have strong opinions about the morality (or immorality) of the criminal justice system, so don't get me started. I also make the best biscuits in town. My current favorite is the yogurt biscuit. Yogurt makes a great biscuit, and they go great with bacon gravy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Forming and articulating strong opinions
Changing those opinions when duly persuaded
Getting people out of lock up
I love games, bridge, poker, pool, but I'm not that good at many of them.

Cooking an awesome dinner with whatever I find in your house. This is one of my favorite games.

Staying up too late with new and old friends, telling stories and laughing
Drinking good whisky

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
bitter greens, beer (I really like good beer), beans 'n' rice, friends, dancing, um, stuff
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I should have for dinner and how much cumin to use
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking dinner with friends.
Watching a movie. Out for drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's nothing I won't admit. Being private has never been one of my virtues.

Oh, and I'm actually 40.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
