My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Even though I've been in Chicago a few years now, I still feel somewhat new to the area, I suppose because there's just so much to see/do here. I'm looking to meet someone to share in all the great activities the city has to offer. I have no problem entertaining myself, but like you, I think that doing almost anything is more fun with you have someone with whom to share it.

I live in the loop, so I'm always up for walking around the park/lakefront, seeing live shows, trying new restaurants, going to street fairs, etc. I'm hoping to meet someone who can have fun doing those things, and who's willing to branch out and try other fun stuff as well, like going horseback riding, taking dance lessons, and occasionally hitting the road for a weekend getaway to some nearby locale for winter sports or plain old sightseeing.

I tend to get along best with people who are polite, smart, and conscientious. I'm a sucker for a woman with a good work ethic, who's serious when she needs to be, but has a sweet and silly side as well.

A sense of humor is a must. I lean towards the dry, witty variety of humor, but I also love lame jokes you might hear a third-grader tell (Q: What does the Statue of Liberty stand for? A: Because she can't sit down!).

More random thoughts:

--I’ve traveled enough to know how hard life is for most people around the world, and consequently you won’t hear me complaining about the minor inconveniences in my own life.

--I LOVE technology, but I'm not consumed by my smart phone and I've managed to get by in life thus far without having a Twitter/Facebook account. And when I'm traveling I still take old-fashioned books with me to read on the plane.

--I like dances that have actual steps.

--Without fail, I always come up 1-2 words short of completing crossword puzzles. So if you're able to help me out with some clues, that's a big plus!

--I’ve done lots of cool things in my time, but I’m proudly unassuming and rarely feel the need to talk myself up (outside of this forum, that is).

--I’ve been independent my entire life, and I’ll never ask you to loan me money, do my laundry, make me a sandwich, or bail me out of jail. I will, however, gladly do all of those things for you, even though I know you're independent as well!

Now having said all of the above, I've learned from experience that THE biggest key to success in a relationship is plain old chemistry. Regardless of how well two people match up on paper, chemistry trumps nearly everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fighting for justice.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cleaning. Yeah, I know that's an odd thing to claim to be good at, but it's true. If I could make decent money cleaning (houses, cars, whatever), I'd probably do that for a living.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My politeness. Or that I'm not wearing any pants, heh heh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a big fan of classic literature and have been reading mostly classics for the past few years--my all-time favorite is Les Miserables. Other favorites include Jude the Obscure, A Tale of Two Cities, and Grapes of Wrath.

As for movies, some of my favorites are: As Good as it Gets, The Shawshank Redemption, The Departed, American Gangster, The Matrix (only the first one), Braveheart, LA Confidential, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Crazy Stupid Love, Gone Baby Gone, and 500 Days of Summer.

I'm not a big TV junkie, but when I do watch, my favorites are How I Met Your Mother, Mythbusters, and reruns of Frasier and Seinfeld. And I'm usually watching cable news during breakfast and dinner. I don't watch local news that often, since I can only take so much reporting on shootings and apartment fires.

I'll eat nearly any kind of food, however I try to avoid barbeque whenever I can. And although don't eat a lot of it, I love cereal and could eat that for every meal if I wasn't trying to keep up the appearance of being a sophisticated adult.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- coffee
- exercise
- cool autumn weather
- my gps
- windshield washer fluid
- crystal meth (hah! kidding!)
- in-unit washer and dryer

Yes, I know I listed seven things instead of six. I'm not high maintenance, I just figured I'd add one extra thing since I tossed in the crystal meth bit...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why, in the words of Jerry Seinfeld, some people like to get on the moving sidewalks at the airport and just stand there, like it's some kind of ride.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hmm...when I'm not in a relationship, I'm usually relaxing at home after a long work week. Perhaps doing some laundry and watching 20/20. Saturdays and Sundays are my usual days for going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a big fan of Project Runway. Go ahead and laugh, I'm secure in my manhood...
