My self-summary
I am a writer/editor of books/websites/magazines. I grew up outside Cleveland, lived in Chicago for eight years, then Brooklyn NY for six years, and now Cleveland again. I'm working for a magazine about the Rust Belt, which is a pretty accurate thumbnail summary re: what I am and what I am like. Successfully relating to other human beings is my favorite activity. I wear sneakers to work most of the time. 2014 update: I work from home now so I don't really even wear shoes most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to go someplace never gone before, at least once, every week. That has mostly meant weird restaurants and museums. I very much like exploring the world but sometimes my desire to just watch movies or read on the couch wins out. Working medium-hard on achieving and existing in a state of grace.

More important than falling asleep on the couch: I am looking to meet a person to date and eventually if it clicks share my life with but I guess this can be intuited from context.
I’m really good at
English language communication, crossword puzzles, making coffee/tea disappear, watching baseball while reading, being a mostly couchbound socialist but also having a tiny grandpa who loves tradition trapped inside me, eating tacos, long walks, bike riding, preparing and consuming frozen vegetables.
The first things people usually notice about me
the faint odor of Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap and my rosy, well-scrubbed cheeks. Also my inherent human dignity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading: Mike Davis, Charles Dickens, detective novels, Dos Passos' USA trilogy, Dead Souls by Gogol, Flannery O'Connor, lots of other stuff. I will read anything. Random internet, the label of a ketchup bottle, diner menus. Except for "the news that’s making everybody tired of life" to borrow from Denis Johnson.

Movies: Favorites include Pierrot le Fou, Taxi Driver, Lawrence of Arabia, other things that are not emotionally vacant/dour/four hours long, respectively. Killer of Sheep. Orson Welles. Repo Man. Putney Swope. Miller's Crossing. Chinatown. Old movies and really anything good or flawed in awesome ways.

Music: Double Nickels on the Dime When I went to LA, I took time out to drive to San Pedro and actually do 55 mph on the 10 en route to Pedro -- I couldn't take proof shoot of odometer because I was driving. Old country and 90s NY rap. And old reggae or jazz when trying to lower my blood pressure. Merle Haggard + Raekwon/Ghostface + Gram Parsons + Big Star + other stuff. Minor Threat. Kris Kristofferson. Bruce Springsteen. Instrumental droning music for work time. The Clash. This Big Pun mixtape that I'm waiting to get tired of but never will. Shostakovich, Bach. I like music a lot, all different sorts, a lot of it obscure and overspecified but that's life in 21st century gutter-yuppie hell for you.

Food: like, last meal? A Greek salad from a diner and Diet Coke. And some steak. Or vegetables. Or tacos. I like nice/fancy food sometimes, but what I eat is not a major part of my soulcraft or whatever.
The six things I could never do without
Clean clothes
Something to read
Sobriety
Other humans
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap
The long version of "This Land is Your Land"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All different kinds of stuff. Remembering to floss every day. Trying to remember whether I need to shave for a work meeting on certain weekday mornings. Wondering whether I am doing something for the right reason, then wondering whether there is a right reason. Mindfulness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing a movie or walking around, or at home reading/writing. That sounds depressing. Sometimes it's pretty fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm sober. I can deal with the company of the overserved but it isn't my favorite thing in the world either. Decoded from passive-aggressive: If you are a committed drinker, we are probably not meant to be. Also I do not make $1,000,000+/year.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you are a lady seeking male humans roughly corresponding to the information laid out above.

I don't 100 percent believe that people have types, but if I did, my type might include: desire to have a good life defined not by ownership of stuff or professional advancement but by living happily (no hippies please).
