My family story is complicated -- ask me about it sometime! -- but the upshot is that my closest friends are like the extended family I don't have. They're mostly back in Boston, and I've been missing them a lot since moving here. This making-friends-as-an-adult business is tricky.
Fortunately, I tend to fall in love with cities easily (past loves include Prague, Berlin, Saint Petersburg, Bishkek, and most recently Vilnius), so exploring a place like DC keeps me busy. It's a beautiful city, and there's plenty to see. Preferably by bike.
In general, what I want to do with my life? Find fulfillment in my career and joy in my relationships, raise a family, and leave this world a little better than I found it.

I'll list my favorite shows, since I watch TV extremely sparingly and I'm proud of my taste: Six Feet Under, Arrested Development, King of the Hill, Newsradio, Peep Show, and The Office.
If your answer is some variant of "sometimes I like to stay in but sometimes I like to go out," then I hate your profile.
For what it's worth, I believe that exchanging vulnerabilities is the realest way to get close to someone.
