My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a DC native (well Arlington, but close enough). I went to school in Ohio for 8 years, but now I'm back! I have degrees in biology and environmental science, and somehow managed to get a full time/reasonably well paying job in my field. When I’m not working I spend time with friends, watch movies, go to concerts, read, cook, go out to eat, hike, canoe or kayak, all that good stuff. Generally, I’m just as happy spending the night in with a good movie, some good beer, and tasty food as I am going out.
What else...? I have a cattle dog mix named Huxley, and a cat named Edgar. They’re pretty awesome. That’s about all I can think of to say right now. If you want to know something else, drop me a line.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to establish a good work/life balance. It can be awfully tempting to just go home after work, hang out with the dog, and catch up on Netflix, but you'll never meet anyone new that way! At least I hope to never meet anyone new in my apartment... That'd just be weird ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring things out: problems, puzzles, how to make and break things. It's way more fun to make or fix something than to buy something new.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm laughing at something inappropriate, or doing something inappropriate to make someone laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love movies… Old movies, new movies, comedies, dramas, scary movies, good movies, awesomely-bad movies…

I really like food. Things I try to eat at least once a month: Pho, afghan, empanadas, rotisserie chicken (with yellow sauce!), sushi, at least one thing I’ve never tried before! I also really enjoy cooking.

Radiolab, Stuff You Missing in History Class, 99% Invisible, This American Life, Freakonomics, Studio 360, The Memory Palace, Judge John Hodgeman, Sawbones, My Brother My Brother And Me, The Nerdist, anything humorous and/or informative.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My friends
2) My dog (he's pretty awesome!)
3) The ability to get outside and play (wildlife and nature!)
4) Good food and good drinks
5) Laughter
6) Learning new things!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What will happen when everyone figures out that I'm only pretending to be an adult? Have I pretended so long that I now am an adult?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, watching a movie, or getting some food and having some drinks, maybe playing a game, or staying in and doing the same. I'm not super into the club scene, but I love live music, stand up, unique bars, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The little social games that go along with dating confuse the hell out of me... maybe I just missed the memo on all of that stuff. I guess the biggest place where this comes out is at the end of dates. I have no idea how to gracefully end a date... I get all nervous and have no idea what I'm supposed to do. Do we kiss, hug, shake hands, high-five? The high-five thing has actually happened (GOOD DATE!). I'm a weirdo, what can I say?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me, if you take yourself seriously, but not too seriously. I have a real job, I'm politically active, I'm pretty passionate about some things, but I'm also pretty goofy. I guess I'm looking for someone who is trying to strike the same balance. (Bonus points if you live with-in 30 min of Arlington!).

A quick caveat: I'm looking for someone who like dogs and cats (I have both), and might someday want to have children. I'm not desperately trying to find someone to move in with me and procreate immediately or anything like that, but at the same time that's something I'd like to do someday. Without putting too fine of a point on it, at this point in my life it'd be pretty shitty to spend a bunch of time on someone (and perhaps fall in love with them) and then end up having totally incompatible likes and desires. If I were just looking for a dalliance I could just pick someone up in a bar.

Jeez! That got heavy for a second! If that stuff didn't totally freak you out, and if you think we have a lot in common/we'd have a good time together, message me!

- P.S. I'm pretty sure my light thing must be red. For some reason I get a lot of emails from people who are a really low percent match. Generally, those emails don't warrant any kind of response from me. If you are upwards of 80% I usually respond. Also, sometimes it takes me a while to write back. I try not to make my responses reasonably considered. You probably want something more thought out than what I would come up with while walking between meetings or about to fall asleep. So if I don't write you back immediately, don't stress out. I'm probably waiting until I have a second to write something meaningful.

Oh god, that got heavy again! Well this is awkward...Um... High five?
