Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm somewhat spontaneous and idealistic- but realistically know
that I can't completely change the world. I'm generally happy
without being annoyingly cheerful. I have a strange sense of humor
and I'm pretty laid back. I enjoy having a drink with my friends,
reading an old classic or scientific literature, attempting to do
something creative (build things, annoy the neighbors with my
guitar, or make a mess with some paint), and listening to music
constantly. I can fix cars and make a mean lasagna. Don't mess with
an angry lasagna!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Growing up and finding balance. Originally, hailing from Ohio -
I've lived in DC for 5 years, work at a university, and plan to
pursue an MBA in 2015.
While I'm very serious about my career, I'm just as focused with my
personal life. I surround myself with good people, and I certainly
like to let my hair down. And I like to use idioms.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing computers and mechanical things, cooking, learning,
listening, being funny, procrastinating, making friends, making
conversation, and teaching one-on-one. Telling embellished
narrative stories- think Austen Burroughs lite.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Often the first thing I hear from strangers is "Are you from
Kentucky?" No, I'm not from Kentucky, but my father was from KY.
Oddly, the accent skipped a generation.
I have a fantastic ability to mis-enunciate many complicated words
such as 'creek', 'Kant', and 'oil'.
People tend to find it funny and disarming, so I digress.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, water, food, heat, love, and self-actualization?
My friends & family
Comedy- Thank you George Carlin
, David Cross
, and Louis CK
My music collection.
The optimism to think that everything might just work out in the
end after all, and the logic to realize that it probably won't.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
OkCupid says I'm arrogant. Can we rename that something light and
fluffy like the clear skies act? Instead of arrogant, I'm UNDERMODEST
really don't care about labels, and I find it amusing that I was
immediately defensive about the characture.
I'm full of shit most of the time, but as I like to joke - I really
am the most modest person I know.
I'm avoiding the question, I guess.. so...
* how to meet a cool guy who isn't too slutty.
* what I want to accomplish in my lifetime.
* societal problems
* politics - and generally being disappointed by everyone.
* adventurous new things to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working on school stuff, drinking, entertaining people with
my antics, or contemplating the world's problems.
Sometimes I'm just home reading a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to identify Republican. (Yes, I bought into the
fiscal-responsibility / contract with America bullshit )
I wish we had a socially progressive / fiscally responsible party.
Neither party seems the latter, these days.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It's 4 am... You're bored and can make interesting conversation...
You find me interesting... You think I'm an idiot. You're certain
I'm your soul mate... You're certain I'm the anti-christ. Your
hormones are raging... (Oxytocin?) You're hungry... You're out to
save my soul from damnation. To be quite honest, I'd rather hear
about you than ramble on about myself. Give me a shout.
Who are you looking for?
