What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in digital marketing as a data strategist, and part-time as
a manager at a neighborhood restaurant. Living amongst the Uzbeks
and Hasidim of Ocean Parkway in Kensington and plotting how I can
amass enough money to live frugally off investment income someday
(as soon as humanly possible).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Perceiving, cooking, making random friends, math, reading, empathy,
video games, waiting tables, making people feel at ease,
snarkiness, making lists of short phrases
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Absurdly tall, and I've been told I have a very welcoming energy.
Also, the blonde hair and blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: I like very long and quite serious literature from the 19th
century as a general preference (I could speak to you about George
Eliot for hours, but I don't think you'd want me to). I don't read
as much as I used to, and I want to turn it around.
GAMES: Know that this isn't part of the prompt, but I am an avid
gamer when I have time to kill. Love RPGs and strategy games, but
great platformers and fighting games are right up my alley too.
Also love board and card games of all varieties as long as they
require as much strategy as luck. Let's play, as long as you don't
mind putting up a fierce fight (I always play to win).
MOVIES: Give me something to think about and gripping experiences,
and I'll enjoy it -- if it features weeping elderly people or
exploding helicopters, doesn't really matter. Also, I like porn,
but not too much.
SHOWS: The Simpsons allowed me to form a tolerable personality. I
also heartily enjoy Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I can't get enough of
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and an OkCupid date led me to check out
the bedazzled gold mine that is RuPaul's Drag Race.
MUSIC: I hate putting shit on shuffle.
The Cardigans are probably my favorite band of all time. I've been
obsessed with Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and Neko Case
lately. Before that it was non-stop Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Joni
Mitchell. From the modern indie music scene, tUnE-yArDs, Deerhoof,
Sufjan Stevens, Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Jens Lekman, Mirah, Fleet
Foxes, and Nellie McKay are all favorites.
FOOD: Yes, please. Pass the butter.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Income inequality, queer theory, my lovably dysfunctional family,
the national debt, my personal debt, psychological astrology,
scientific astronomy, agnostic spirituality, white male privilege,
the decline and fall of western civilization, moving to somewhere
colder and more socialist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Low-key night out with friends. Some reasonable quantity of whiskey
is pretty much always involved. Unfortunately Saturday morning
usually means work, so probably not dancing 'til sunrise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes it feels like I know nothing (some Buzzfeed quiz told me
that my GoT character is Jon Snow, which was flattering and also
annoying), but I am pretty sure that most cultural authorities
(Obama, The Pope, Lady Gaga, etc) have no idea what the fuck
they're doing either.
I am a dabbling astrologer who looks at it as a tool for personal
development, and I'm interested in some other esoteric spiritual
practices. Even if you don't buy it, I hope that you can respect my
interest in it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are brave and thoughtful and truthful.
You are interested in some rough play in the bedroom once in a
while. I'm vers and would love to find someone else to experiment
with on both sides of the spectrum.
Gay couples/open relationships also welcome for temporary fun, if
you made it to the end of my profile.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
