My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for visiting. Here's a quick list, for fans of lists:

-Midwest-raised so I'm polite (without the cheese hat) [WI - NYC - L.A.]
-love going outside; riding my bike, hikes or just walking
-nickname at age 4? "The Mayor"
-the calm person in a crisis
-financial situation: excellent
-I like arts, science, psychology, sociology, space, nature
-I'm a romantic (but not mopey, you're thinking of Morrissey)
-I don't wear ed hardy, sports jerseys or flip-flops but you can. Go for it.
-very strong empathy instinct (except when it comes to people who say "catsup" you people are just wrong on that.)
-couldn't resist adding explanations to OkCupid Questions 'cause there are some real dumb ones; (no offense intended, OkCupid, Inc.)

I learned the match % really only means something if you & the other person have answered a lot of the same questions. (Pro-tip: I take-off half the % if the other person owns a giant reptile that could devour me in my sleep.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
being creative: acting, writing, doing v/o narration, spending time with friends and family, trying to help out when I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
common sense, noticing things, figuring out how things work, fixing stuff (okay, some stuff) listening, raising either eyebrow in healthy skepticism, drinking coffee, being patient, empathizing, suggesting we continue this conversation in-person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

fresh food, anything healthy but also ice cream... thai, vietnamese, indian, mexican... basically vegetarian but I'm cool with whatever you do; I eat & let eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
people I love, physical activity, a creative outlet, humor, technology, music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
chips & salsa.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like that zen-like, existential statement, OkCupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fed a squirrel outside of a window at my place nearly everyday for a month recently. Sadly, ours is a forbidden kind of love which could never last.

It feels good to get that out of the way up front.

Wait, doesn't admitting a "private" thing here make this a self-contradicting section? Dammnit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
since "you like to laugh" is cliché, I'll say "you like up-beat conversations about lots of topics"
-you like making a plan but also enjoy being spontaneous
-you're not fronting a vast criminal enterprise, you have integrity and empathy
-you're pursuing or already doing something you love
-you like discovering stuff, finding fun activities
-you value your independence and know that being with a cool person means both of you get both independence & togetherness; everyone wins, hooray!
-you're rarely bored, have something going on but know when to make time for something new
-you're confident, curious, and interested in things
-you believe in science and don't fall for cure-all claims and snake-oil salespersons
--maybe you want to teach me something you're good at; piano, baking, parkour, the basic neuroscience of synaptic transmissions
-you aren't accessing this from the prison library computer

Let's face it, a recent gigantic study showed that men make 80% of initial contacts and get a reply only 25% of the time. (Less if they had a shirtless selfie taken in a really gross bathroom.) So if you're intrigued, by all means, let me know.
