My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I mostly have questions.

Masters Degree in English. Still cannot punctuate.

Does not know difference between left and right.

Condensed Version: indulgently pessimistic.

Quickstart guide:
Doesn't like professional sports. Organized religion. Consumerism. Will not bless you when you sneeze.

Does like long bike rides, ethyl alcohol, musty paperbacks, the idiosyncratic way you pronounce certain words, say "sill" in window sill, or Descartes, etc. etc. Generally curious about your concept of language. I apologize in advance for losing track of what you were saying because I was distracted by the sound/rhythm of your voice. Indulge me.

Will request high fives, and/or quiet time.

I would like to meet you for a drink, but mostly conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Imagine a poster that depicts the developmental stages of a leopard frog. Now yawn. Not out of boredom, but with pleasant self-satisfaction.

That's pretty accurate.

By day, I work in development for an education non-profit. I'm a do gooder, who doesn't often think of it that way. By night, I sometimes do free lance copywriting. And I'm a total hack. I'm trying to enjoy it all.

I like taking other humans seriously. We are the signifiers. So I'm probably old fashioned in my concepts of respect, manners, and common decency. I put others before me as much as I can. It is often a mistake, and very often a mistake in Philly. You lovely animals.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Elaborating on the obvious.

Long looking

attempting kindness and arriving at creepy and/or pitiable.

Getting kicked out of the establishments I enjoy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Smiles with eyebrows. Otherwise innocuous.

Minimal words. Maximum impact. Hopefully laughter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love film (briefly enrolled in school for film prod.) especially Documentary (Errol Morris, Chris Smith, Maysles bros, Ross McElwee)

Books: Poetry (T. R. Hummer, Norman Dubie, Wayne Dodd, David Swerdlow, Theodore Roethke, Anne Sexton)

Music: Madonna's early work. Anything from Constellation Records out of Montreal. After many years as a snob/aesthete, I'm easing up. Please help me better "understand" hip-hop and or rap.

Fiction (Faulkner, Joyce, Hesse, Herbert)

Beers, all kinds, or everything/anything neat. Altho, I no longer consider Vodka a beverage, it is a convenient intoxicant.

I eat food. I do try to avoid animal flesh because I take great pleasure ingesting the worst kinds. I do not eat pigs. That decision is based primarily in aesthetics. Hog flesh looks human, and so is reprehensible in all the right ways. Raw fish is probably on the top of my list. Anything between brioche too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dumb wonder
Prolonged and deliberate eye contact
Women. (Not quite in the sense of the Bukowski novel, but with a similar undaunted reverence for their company)
The expression on someone's face when receiving bad news
The oblivion of hugging
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Thinking is so dangerous.

I can no longer say
looking into one human
face what a person is

Hands. Light.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
very aware of my age.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is a good place to let you know that I am sorry for failing to respond to your last message, and in the midst of a probably pretty decent human exchange. I just don't have the energy to carry on like that very long. Id rather we meet so we can dismiss each other in earnest. Or not.
