Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A line from a poem by Warshan Shire has spoken quite loudly to
me--My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter
than my solitude.
That's who I'm looking for--someone sweeter and more refreshing
than solitude. I want to be in a relationship, to give, to share,
to be close to someone--but I'm not going to be in a relationship
solely to not be alone. I'm looking for a friend, an ally, a lover
and confidant, and I want to be the same for someone else. It
should go without saying that I'm an introvert--INTP to be exact.
And I'd classify myself as a quirkyalone--check out Sasha Cagen if
you want to find out what that is.
I run and I bike--I just finished my first half marathon, and a
20-mile bike ride is a good morning spent. Call me crazy, but it's
fun. Having a running/cycling partner would be great. Or having
someone who understands the need to run/bike at the crack of
I like philosophical talks, reading, watching sports, hoping in the
car for a drive.
I listen to jazz and electronica.
Geekiness and nerdiness are good things.
I'm a great friend.
I'm a good listener.
A little shy at the start, but I warm up fast--if you don't want me
to drone on about the pleasures of Brussels, don't talk about
tl;dr...painfully independent, active introvert seeks warrior
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a newspaper--yes, they are still around... And I run and
I bike--for fun, and to keep me out of trouble. Figuring out which
races I'll do in 2015--and where. Generally, keeping my shit
together the best way I can, and trying to live the questions...
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, a hat, my family, a book, my bicycle, good friends...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Designing the next phase in my life...and how a certain song got
into my head...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Quietly enjoying a meal out. Or driving around and decompressing...
Or getting ready to run a race or do a ride the next morning
