My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
***I am dating some awesome currently and am all kinds of distracted. I might not message you back immediately because, there's an awesome, fucking person distracting me. Duh.***

I believe in the dignity of all human beings. Everyone has something to contribute to this world. I find people fascinating and want to understand what inspires them, what makes them tick.

I want to find balance in my own life, some equilibrium of health, intimacy, challenges, and adventure. There is a lot of beauty in this world and I want to explore more ways to connect with it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Portland from the Bay Area to start a graduate program in social work at PSU (side note, never move to a new place 10 days before school starts. It is ill-advised at best). I finally graduated and have my MS-fucking-W. I currently work with adult who are diagnosed with developmental disabilities. It's not the long-term plan, but it's where I am at now and it keeps me busy.

I have a difficult time imagining myself working in other fields. I think that I would get bored. The thought of working in a cubicle sounds like a death sentence to me. I have more interesting work stories than most of the people I know.

I enjoy exploring my new-ish surroundings, trying new mixed drinks, biking, cooking, reading, and making fun of Beaverton (because someone's gotta).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being sassy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I frequently talk with my hands. I get louder when talking excitedly. I am quirky and nerdy. I hate small talk and will probably start asking you probing questions sooner than most people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read. I have difficulties with reading one book at a time. Paulo Freire recently rocked my world (whereas the new DSM 5 decidedly has not). Mad in American has been an interesting, but disturbing read, as has Black and Blue. While I am not reading the series at present, the Dresden Files hold a special place in my heart.

As for movies, I a few of my favorites include A Town Called Panic; Better Off Dead; Good Will Hunting; The Constant Gardener; Amelie; Goodbye, Lenin!; Kung Fu Hustle; Star Wars (the old ones); Despicable Me; Harold and Maude. I cannot deal with horror movies. I was a little disturbed by The Blob, and frankly, that movie should not bother anyone.

I do not watch a lot of TV, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for Top Gear, Black Books, Big Bang Theory, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Totally Biased, and the Daily Show. Of late, I have been watching old episodes of In Living Color. Also, if you do not like the Muppets, I don't know if I can in good conscience associate with you.

I listen mostly to rock. Inis Mona by Eluveitie will be the music for the epic battle scene in the movie of my life. Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down by the Toasters is what I listen to when I think it's going to be a rough work day.

In regards to food, I will try just about anything once (please refer to the photo featuring me and chicken pudding) and I enjoy trying new dishes. It is really fun to cook for others. I am truly incapable of cooking for small numbers of people. I tend to eat more vegan and am trying to keep up with the gluten-free thing, but sometimes you just need some fried chicken...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming I have the necessities already and that people do not count as "things"...
Books
Sunshine
Travel
New foods
Flowers
Pickup truck and my trusty bicycle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where my next travel destination will be; existence; food; mental health /wellness; if my predilection for change and my desire for stability will ever find an equilibrium; am I buying too much dark chocolate at the co-op; why the fuck are 3/4 of the ciders on the market ridiculously sweet and boring; when did my roommate manage to sneak "hookers" onto my grocery list; etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to figure out where my week went.

I'm kind of kinky. You should be, too.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I really want to get to know people who will challenge me intellectually and personally, people who like to look at the world from a variety of angles. I would love to chat with more social justice-minded people.

You're hot and nerdy. If you can have a conversation with me that is punctuated with impersonations of Strongbad emails and references to the Muppets, we'll probably get on swimmingly.

Alternatively, if your profile describes you as a "real laid back guy", "I'm getting in touch with my inner Goddess", or you say that you are "just looking to get the most out of life right now and really enjoy the moment", I'll just cut to the chase and tell you to fuck off. Open your eyes. There is so much suffering in the world. Get off your ass and do something worthwhile instead of just reveling in your privilege. Then you can get back to me.

Also, I am not looking for messages that say, "Hey...how r u doin?" You should consider the English language sacrosanct. Additionally, I am soooo not your unicorn.
