My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Connecticut, grew up in Florida, college in Boston, and living out adult life (so far) in a dingy-but-lovable corner of SOMA.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the editor-in-chief of a popular San Francisco restaurant news blog. If you like this sort of thing, it's probably the one you're thinking of. I'm not a food critic (those jobs are pretty much dead these days), but a reporter covering the restaurant beat. Much to my chagrin, this does not include Taco Bell.

I also get paid to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine every week and tell people what I thought about it.

Other descriptors: fiction writer, craft-beer dork, film snob, yogini, semi-pro smartass.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dumb puns (making and appreciating). Trivia. Book-hoarding. Communicating entirely in favorite Achewood links. Getting a sunburn after five minutes of exposure. Parsing a beer list. Giving backrubs. Cooking the same five meals. Skee ball. Napping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A fellow writer (now a friend) wrote an article about the night we met, in which she described me as "awesome, intellectual, funny, a little goofy, self-effacing, girlish, and love[s] to drink."

I have a very loud laugh and very small feet.

Food: Eating out is part of my job, so I eat almost everything. These are the three things I don't eat: cilantro (lousy genetics make it taste like soap), coffee (lousy genetics make me sick when I drink it, even decaf), blue cheese (terrifying).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, beers, buddies, bathos, bravery, badinage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
There will be a world with no you in it,
and it won’t be lopsided here without you.
The people who knew you will also be
gone, and then the people who had been
told about you. A child in each playground swing,
a dog at the end of every leash.
Water will course through the pipes
in the city you no longer live in, in your
home that you are not inside of. The new
inhabitants will hold a pot beneath
the faucet in the kitchen, place the pot
on top of the stove, just as you did.
Some of your objects remain, have
been reassigned. Your guitar is held
by a boy whose mother purchased it
from a resale shop. Your gray pearls
are with a woman flecked with your
genes. Many of your books have
disintegrated. A few of the things
you made still belong to someone
else who looks at them. There are
television shows starring humans who
were born long after you disappeared.
Feathers fill the pillows, and teens
and preteens take the risk of placing
their tongues in each other’s mouths.
Forever, you will never come back.
Ninety-eight or eighty-three over
infinity, it is almost not even a fraction.

- Hannah Stephenson
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some combination of dinner, friends, wine, movies, novels, house parties, home, away.

And sometimes going to bed at 8:30 out of sheer exhaustion, to be honest. Five straight days of nonstop writing can wear you out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a gooey marshmallow center. I cry at everything sad in pop culture and/or art. Without exception.

Total sub. Not looking for casual sex in that vein (it requires trust), but if you're interested in dating someone who's inclined that way, now you know.

I have no tolerance for littering, treating service workers poorly, or "Don't Stop Believing," which I will never forgive David Chase for repopularizing. I enjoy punishing evildoers, though that mostly consists of insulting men who street-harass me and calling the cops on bike chop shops from a safe distance away.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are kind. And witty. And your profile doesn't contain dirt-dull sentences like "I'm a laid-back guy," or "I can be serious, but I like to have fun, too."

You're a try-hard. I try hard. I give a lot of fucks, essentially all the fucks, and cooler-than-thou posturing seems to only ignite a primal rage inside me.

You love to read. Especially fiction and long-form journalism. You have books upon books and you want to grow up to be John Jeremiah Sullivan, or are him.

You think "I Will Dare" is as romantic as songs get.

You like your women whip-smart, blunt, and thoroughly hedonistic.
