My self-summary
My name is Adin and I wonder if it's awkward that my real name is in my OkCupid name, but it's my name so I guess it's not really a secret. It's pronounced like Hayden.

I'm from the Midwest but have been in NY since 2008. I'm a nice guy (but isn't that what Midwestern serial killers always say?) and I'm pretty easy going. I like having fun and being thoughtful.

Honestly I'm not terrible at describing/talking about myself so I don't know why this self-summary is so boring.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an actor and a writer but I don't make money doing that so I work at a leasing office in the Financial District.
I’m really good at
Useless voices.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually tell me I look like Brad Pitt but I don't see it. \_(ツ)_/¯
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like memoirs and magical realism. Jane Eyre got me through some shit. Dracula. Anne of Green Gables. The White Hotel by DM Thomas. Was by Geoff Ryman. The House of the Spirits by Isabelle Allende. Probably my favorite book is Beloved by Toni Morrison. I also like Joyce Carol Oates. Enemies by Isaac B Singer, Middlesex by Jeffrey E, The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson.

I don't know what my favorite movie is but I like Paul Thomas Anderson films very much, Election makes me laugh and The Color Purple makes me cry. I love horror and boxing movies. Gary Oldman, Todd Haynes (whom I sold dessert to once), Meryl Streep. I've seen a lotta Von Trier and Scorsese movies and I do love them. I'll watch Nicole Kidman in anything which means I've seen a lot of bad movies.

I'm not very discerning with music. I can manage to like all of it, even Hailee Steinfeld and Justin Beiber. But if I was a band, I'd like to be The National or Arcade Fire. What I'm trying to say is my music taste is basic and I am attracted to people who can educate me on music which is basically everyone.

I genuinely love my friends' bands but they are not basic.

I put on the Tori Amos Spotify at work the other day, and pretty much every song that played was a song that I was obsessed with during junior high so I guess I'm that kinda gay.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm usually making up stories in my head or imagining a future where I am being interviewed on a talk show about how I overcame those tough times when I coped by pretending to be interviewed on talk shows.
On a typical Friday night I am
rehearsing & drinking

sometimes neither and not always at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When my lips get chapped, I peel off the the lip skin with my teeth and eat it like a fucking crazy person. (UPDATE: I don't do this as much anymore.)

Sometimes when I'm having a bad time in public I pretend I'm in a Lana Del Rey video.

I'm not positive that I'm 5'7", or that I have an average build? (UPDATE: I went to the doctor and I'm def 5'7" with an average build.)
You should message me if
You do you.
