My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a native New Englander, a non-Catholic with two first names, an explorer, a political news consumer, and a great cuddler.

When I first moved here, DC seemed like the kind of takes-itself-too-seriously place that I would experience for a year or two before moving somewhere a little more exciting. But the region has really grown on me. This city has a lot of intelligence, a lot of passion, and even a little weirdness. I'm getting a bit tired of people moving away.

Brief trips to the woods are of the utmost importance. I'm a big fan of cabins in Shenandoah.

I ride a bike almost everywhere.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in bicycle advocacy and sometimes volunteer at a local bike repair co-op. Also improv comedy.

I love to cook! Ask me about my gluten-free pie / quiche crust. Can't live without a clean kitchen.

As often as I can, I cuddle up on the couch under a wool blanket with a New Yorker (I'm horrendously behind) or a good book.

I believe that a small, dedicated group of retro-grouches can keep the US Postal Service alive. I write letters and send them in collage-laden envelopes -- sometimes with an old typewriter that sounds like a jackhammer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
An improv warmup game called Big Booty. I will crush you.

Building and maintaining fires. My dad taught me really well. This is often a secret talent that is only revealed after male friends I'm camping with have resigned in frustration.

I've also gotten pretty good at teaching people how to use barrel adjusters, clean and lubricate a drivetrain, patch a flat, and true a wheel.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cheeks get really rosy from the slightest amount of exertion, embarrassment, or booze.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
On the literary side: David Foster Wallace, Dave Eggers, David Mitchell, Jonathan Safran Foer, Micheal Pollan, Isabel Allende, Malcolm Gladwell, and Jonathan Franzen. I also love me some Mary Oliver and T. S. Eliot.

Would you believe me if I told you I hadn't seen Star Wars until last year?

I don't own a TV, BUT I exercise Netflix priviledges ocassionally. I am or have been into Mad Men, Game of Thones, Parks and Rec, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Modern Family.

Music! Music is important. I'm a big fan of Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Fleetwood Mac, The Dodos, the Beach Boys (don't knock them until you've listened to Smiley Smile), Beach House, The New Pornographers, LCD Soundsystem, Broken Social Scene, The Beatles, and Sufjan. And so many more.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen? And water. Outside. Friends. Shared advice. Kale! A bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Getting more people on bicycles. Congress. The news business. Communications strategy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oot and aboot, typically. But sometimes I'll stay in and watch a movie with roommates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm allergic to wheat. I had just gotten really good at baking bread when I found out. While I do miss drinking beer and eating bread, I don't find avoiding gluten to be all that difficult anymore.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're kind, steady, and adventurous. You may not have everything in your life figured out, but you're in a pretty stable place. You're a straight shooter and generally reject all the weird formalities we learned when we were growing up about what dating should be like.

You're down for an impassioned discussion on political issues, a bike ride, and a cuddle session. You're mature and know what you want, but the occasional bad pun or poop joke is not entirely beneath you.

You spotted the grammar error.
