Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My autobiography will be titled, "Cute, but Kinda Bitchy." Some
people find me endearing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
If you really want to get my attention, you should talk to me about
the effects of masculinity-consciousness on gay men. And you should
not start the conversation by telling me how "masc" or
"straight-acting" you are. You don't look very straight when you
are choking on dick. Get your misogyny and internalized homophobia
out of my face.
I'm a law school graduate, a former college runner, am mildly
addicted to youtube, smile a lot, laugh at inappropriate times, am
more attracted to intelligence than beauty (I wanna start a Tumblr
called "Hot guys using stupid inspirational quotes"), and I really
just want to be FLOTUS (if you don't know what FLOTUS is, we won't
I love a bourgeois vegan/protest/intellectual gay, but who
I emphatically do NOT date Republicans. There are people who
literally suffered and died and lost family/friends/careers for
your ability to be an "out" gay person in this country, and voting
for representatives who intend to restrict your (and every other
LGBT person's) ability to exist as your straight counterparts do is
offensive to the years of struggle that have gotten us to the place
we are now. If you vote Republican, don't waste your time talking
to me unless you want to experience a biting diatribe littered with
expletives about how you don't really love yourself. There is no
excuse for an LGBT person to vote Republican. And don't give me
this small government/fiscal conservative bullshit, either. It
doesn't make you any less complicit.
^^^^ All of the above is generally why I can't get dates. I am cool
I am profane. Words that make wide the eyes of people with delicate
sensibilities are my weapon of choice. Vulgarity is a linguistic
tool; it is dangerous and essential.
Here's to us :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just graduated from law school. That means I am either really
ambitious or really boring...I'll let you decide.
I work for a giant law firm downtown doing super cool diversity and
inclusion stuff. Talk to me about why diversity matters to you.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding hilarious YouTube videos.
Running really long races.
Making douchebags aware of their douchebaggery.
The Sims and Pokemon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my teeth. They're paid for (thanks mom and dad!). Then
probably that I ask a lot of questions when I first meet someone
(anything is fair game). It's mostly because silence and breaks in
conversation make me incredibly anxious. Or maybe it's just the
lawyer in me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Rachel Maddow and Melissa Harris-Perry are the two women I could
see myself marrying.
Ask me about Protest Literature, Slam Poetry, neo-feminism,
affirmative action, or LGBT social politics. Smart guys are hot,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hope for the future.
Words spoken by smart people.
Trivial shit that makes me sound shallow.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, equality, justice, freedom, religion.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching "What Would You Do."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I drank a bottle of wine one night and wrote an 11-page paper about
a boy I was hopelessly devoted to. I subsequently turned that paper
in to my English professors as part of my senior thesis.
The moral of this story: fuck with me and I'll get really drunk and
write essays about you. It's kind of like how Taylor Swift writes
albums (except that I am a much better writer than Taylor
I am also awkwardly obsessed with One Direction. I give you full
permission to judge me. I would judge me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are smart and ambitious, if you want to change the world, if
you can handle someone who is sometimes brutally honest and
probably thinks too highly of himself...
...or if you are bored and think I'm cute or interesting.
