My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's me in a dating-profile nutshell.

I am pleasant to be around; you'd enjoy my company, and could leave my side at parties with your friends or coworkers around without worrying. I'm pretty self-aware, for what that's worth, and don't seem to be as narcissistic as most guys on here. I am confident, but not arrogant. I think there are lots of guys that are sweet, but they're pushovers; and there are lots of guys that are fun, but they're self-centered jerks. I'm a nice person, but am no passive pushover.

But wait! Here's more. I detest astrology, cringe at the thought that creationism could be taught in public schools, am horrified that otherwise educated people misuse "its" and "it's," and spend more time thinking about my dog's happiness than my own. I'm annoyed by pretentious people who think they have the answers to everything. I know I'm smart, but spend most of my time laughing at how stupid I can be about some things. I have a great sense of humor, though sometimes it veers towards the morbid (not the mean).

If I had to randomly list some words that apply to me, I think I'd pick intelligent, goofy, charming, geeky, cool-in-an-unconventional-way-that-some-woman-will-find-endearing (yes, that's a compound word - it has hyphens), dependable, undramatic, and thoughtful.

Oh, one last thing. I may be an agnostic, but my ethical code is clear. I'm not a cheater. I don't play games. I won't lie to you. I am solid in a crisis. I will support you in your decisions, even if we may sometimes disagree. How many men can (honestly) say that?

One last-last thing: I am the primary caregiver to an elderly parent. My mom is living with me until she transitions to assisted living some time later this year. If you can't understand that concept, I don't think we'd be compatible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the head of the appellate practice section of a corporate litigation firm. I also try to be a good companion/parent to my dog (update: unfortunately, my dog just passed away. But I can't bear to edit her out of my profile yet).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trivial Pursuit. Let's just say when the teams are picked, you want to be matched with me, even if Ken Jennings is in the room. I'm passable at scrabble and most other board games, and I love playing them. I can also kick your ass at chess. Of course, since women generally don't play chess, I'll add this: remember the last guy you dated? I could kick his ass, too. I'm pretty passable at tennis, and would love to play with you even if you aren't sure if we're a match (I'm about a 3.0, if that means anything to you).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lots of women seem to like dimples, so I'll say that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read all the time, so the books change constantly; I like just about everything. Since everyone on okcupid seems to enjoy reading lists, here are some of my favorite writers: H.P. Lovecraft, Neil Gaiman, Edward Gorey, Agatha Christie, and Arturo Perez-Reverte. Yes, I've read all the books in the "A Song of Fire and Ice" and "The Hunger Games" sets.

I tend to like horror movies, noir, and classics, but also like cheesy pieces of fluff; favorites include Casablanca, Memento, Mulholland Drive, Battle Royale, Blue Velvet, Audition (the Japanese make way better horror than we do), and anything by the Coen brothers. If you've ever seen Bloody Pit of Horror or Hobo with a Shotgun and enjoyed it, I will likely propose on the spot. Because I'm a guy, I like Monty Python and can quote it if need be, but don't because that's just too geeky. I don't watch much current television; everything I like tends to get canceled (Arrested Development, Mr. Show with Bob and David, etc.).

For music, it's mainly the '80s. I've seen Depeche Mode live over twenty times, and am actually proud of that fact. I also enjoy New Order, Joy Division, Roxy Music, and similar groups. I love Sinatra and most jazz/standard singers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Starbucks. I know I should be patronizing a local coffee shop, but I'm addicted.
2. A television. I don't trust people without one. Most of the time it's just background noise, but it helps me feel connected.
3. Eating out. I cannot cook to save my life, and this is one of life's greatest pleasures (with the right companion).

When I think of three more, I'll add them . . . .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I'm still single. Whether Radiohead is really any good, or if people just say they like Radiohead to sound cool. Whether I think about things too much or not enough, and which things fall into which category.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out to eat with friends, relaxing after a difficult week, taking care of mom (see above), or reading. Occasionally I have a drink with a friend, but generally don't go to many bars.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're smart, stable, communicative, and minimally fun to be around. Or you'd like to play tennis, whether it's freezing cold or sweltering outside!
