My self-summary
Jaded idealist, looking for wise souls or holy fools.

I've been working like mad for the past few years to try and get to a place of economic security after spending most of my 20s as a broke-ass bohemian type. I'm slowly learning how to treat myself to (a few heavily discounted and/or lightly used) nice things and cool experiences, though I haven't had a real vacation in years (promising myself that I will do this in 2016).

Love food and drinks and games and reading all the comments on Jezebel articles. Getting back into working out, and trying to decide if I'm enough over the trauma of middle school gym to take exercise classes.

Finally, succinctly, importantly, I have good credit and bad habits.
What I’m doing with my life
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 pining for a dramatically early retirement.
I’m really good at
Perceiving, cooking, making random friends, math, reading, empathy, video games, singing, waiting tables, making people feel at ease, snarkiness, making lists of short phrases
The first things people usually notice about me
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
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). Joined a book club to help get back to being a more active reader.

GAMES: 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. Love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, Veep. I can't get enough of Tina Fey or Amy Poehler or RuPaul. Lately digging Adventure Time, Archer, and Bob's Burgers too.

MUSIC: I hate putting shit on shuffle.

The Cardigans are probably my favorite band of all time. I've been obsessed with Tame Impala, Beach House, Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and Neko Case lately. Before that it was non-stop Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Joni Mitchell. Previous obsessions include: tUnE-yArDs, Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens, Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Jens Lekman, Mirah, Portishead, Fleet Foxes, and Nellie McKay.

FOOD: Yes, please. Pass the butter. I won't order dessert usually, but I'm happy to help you finish yours.
The six things I could never do without
Being Seated
Being Unseated
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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, how to get citizenship somewhere that's colder and more socialist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Low-key night out with friends. Some reasonable quantity of whiskey is pretty much always involved. Saturday morning usually means work, so probably not dancing 'til sunrise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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 have no idea what 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
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.
