My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved here 15 years ago mostly because this was The Replacements' old stomping grounds. The fact they had already been broken up the better part of a decade didn't bother me; actually, late to the party kind of fit their M. O.

Best decision I ever made. I love the Twin Cities. I love my life here. I love how it's green in the summer and pristine in the winter and actual seasons exist in between.

Personality-wise, I'm pretty gregarious and always like to include shyer folks in whatever conversation I'm having (though I am good at taking hints if that's not your bag). People compliment me on my vocabulary, even though most every book I read, I'm floored by how many words I don't know. I appreciate silence. I love to dance; what I lack in technical skill, I make up for in enthusiasm and tend to be much more graceful on the third drink than before the first.

I actually like dating. I like meeting new people, engaging in verbal repartee with pseudo-strangers, checking out new places with ample vegetarian options, taking in more and more of the cultural landscape. Not every date is a step closer to a soul mate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a project manager/business analyst for an IT company that deals in algorithms, which is fortunate, because I love saying that word. Algorithms.

Attempting to become more fluent in French through Duolingo and a French discussion group. I have an ever-so long way to go.

I'm back in the lap pool now due to a nasty bout with plantar fasciitis post-half marathon. I love swimming; not a huge fan of the chlorine aftertaste, but life's a series of trade-offs, isn't it?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
picking out the perfect gift, warming up, looking like I have it all figured out (especially when I don't), swimming, trying to see the good in whatever situation I find myself in, communicating, thinking of others.

Flip turns in the shallow end. My spine and skull are still intact.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an animated conversationalist. Some would say flamboyant. I wouldn't disagree with them. But I can be chill too, as the situation demands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Taste in music isn't the litmus test it used to be (thank you, Nick Hornby), but it's still incredibly important to me, and the building of intimacy with any new people will undoubtedly feature a killer soundtrack. The Afghan Whigs is my all-time favorite band. Wild Beasts and Lydia Loveless are among my current obsessions. Absolute sucker for anthems. I am weighing purchasing a turntable right now: I'm addicted to Spotify yet have serious problems with how artists are compensated through that particular model, so buying records will help put cash in their pockets, hopefully.

Favorite films include The Royal Tenenbaums, The Assassination of Jesse James, The Fountain, The Talented Mister Ripley, The Immigrant, and Bresson's Pickpocket.

TV: Inside Amy Schumer. Rectify (though I haven't seen the most recent season.)

Books, books, books: Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky is my favorite novel, with Laurence Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet pulling up the rear. Pema Chodron is comfort food. J.M. Ledgard's Submergence is probably the best novel I read in 2014.

Poetry: Thomas McGrath, Jack Gilbert, Anna Akhmatova. Reading poems is the closest I can come to stopping time.

Restaurants that send me over: Northeast Social, Hazel's, Fat Lorenzo, Erte.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends/family, obvious. While I wouldn't die without my library card, I'm not sure life would be worth living without it. My bicycle. My bicycle helmet. Words. Possibility.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
which fictional character best defines me as a dating profile so I can appropriate his name for my handle.

How I can make a living without compromising my values.

What the next track should be.

How to make the next sentence sing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dog has a white mohawk. (By nature, not design.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I couldn't hope to summarize what I'm looking for, but a few common denominators among any potentials: a strong social conscience, a smile whose corners crack me up a little every time I see it, a wit that can bite without drawing blood. A devoted friend. Fingertips like fuses. Appreciation of sly bon mots and a neverending search for the mot juste. Tolerance for people who pepper their conversation with misappropriated French phrases.

Oh, and if you're Caitlin Moran.
