My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm moving to L.A. at the end of June, after spending an ill-advised year in Houston. So, I would like to meet someone to explore the area with. Previously, I was in the DC area (for seven years) and in Florida (six months, though I grew up there).

El Segundo is my location for now, since that's where my office will be. I really have no idea where I'll actually live.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Monday through Friday, I work as an editor/manager for a company that produces technical business publications. I'm pro-Oxford comma and have to bounce between But in some of my free time (emphasis on "some"), I also blog about sports, specifically college basketball, semi-professionally. You can probably guess where I went to school based on my username. In other words, I spend a bit more time in front of a computer than is probably healthy, so I really enjoy social opportunities when they arise. Career-wise, I've bounced around a bit: improv actor, radio sportscaster, Epcot tour guide, political science PhD candidate, supermarket training developer, and accidental graphic designer. Add in a theatre minor and life-long interest in art, and I like to think I have a balanced set of interests.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trivia (see below), bracketology, writing, editing, correcting people, sticking my foot in my mouth after correcting people, spouting out random (and often completely useless facts), falling for the wrong person at the wrong time...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I mostly read non-fiction, particularly things related to law, politics/government, sports.

Movies: It honestly takes a lot to get me to the theatre. I prefer comedies, sci-fi, and political-type thrillers.

Shows: If the Simpsons are on FXX, one of my TiVo's tuners will be on it. Otherwise, SportsNight, Seinfeld, The West Wing, Law & Order, Red Dwarf, Mystery Science Theater...basically a whole bunch of stuff that's not on anymore. And Top Gear, the UK version. Parks & Rec, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Community are three of my other current favorites, which should give you a good idea about my sense of humor.

Music: Way too many to list here, some of my choices are great and others are questionable. My three favorite stations are BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, and Toronto's Edge 102.

Food: I've become more adventurous as I've gotten older, but still stay away from things that are too crazy or too spicy. Obviously, I will miss. Texas BBQ and Tex-Mex.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than friends and family, of course...and in no specific order...

iPhone
computer/internet
contacts/glasses
good music
comfortable shoes (hard to find in my size)
sports, particularly college basketball/football and baseball
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
writing, where I'm going on my next weekend trip/vacation, college basketball (especially Florida and Syracuse), when the kids will bring the Cubs to the playoffs, politics, the general state of the country/world and how we break this inertia (or, the collective burying of heads in the sand) present in this country right now
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a baseball game, happy hour, or at home relaxing. It all depends on how busy the end of the week was.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Long ago, a slightly more geeky version of myself was on the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament. (I lost.)

And I'm not the biggest fan of first dates, they honestly remind me of job interviews. Blah.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you're open to an actual relationship, like sports, are willing to play tourist with me here and in other places, have a music collection you would like to share, and, most importantly, you're open to actually meeting. While endless e-mailing/texting is a fun way to run out the clock at the office, it's only a halfway-decent judge of chemistry.

I'm ultra-liberal but am rather old fashioned when it comes to dating. So, the shopping aspect of online dating bothers me. I'd like to meet someone who feels similarly.

Patience is also helpful because I'm a bit shy and I've never been the best at opening myself up.
