My self-summary
At heart, I'm an optimistic person who believes you should never stop learning, whether it's about yourself or about the world. A college degree still leaves a lot to be desired.

Relating to that, intelligence is the most attractive quality in a person. You decide what number two is.

I love trying a new thing, even if I decide later it wasn't for me. Not to be too negative, but some people just drift through life with little more than drunken nights and Will Ferrell movies - not me. Why not do something exciting and different?
What I’m doing with my life
Since leaving the marketing field for web development a year ago, the challenges of a self-educated career change have kept me busy (but thankfully not too disengaged from outside activities.). I'm also getting back on the exercise wagon, going deeper down the Buddhism rabbit hole, and plotting my big return to Chicago.
I’m really good at
writing, playing guitar, figuring out what celebrities people look like, problem solving, remembering specific dates (could've made a great history major...if history interested me).
The first things people usually notice about me
Looks can be deceiving. Think Lincoln Park on the outside, Logan Square on the inside.

My sense of humor is likely a close second - usually dry, sometimes divisive, although I've toned it down with age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is my biggest passion. In the current rotation: Beck, The Haxan Cloak, Lou Reed, Milk Music, Screaming Females. I live and die for indie rock and punk, although you can't argue with a good pop song. I've realized my favorite bands are middle-aged power-pop groups who wear their Beatle influences proudly (see: Cheap Trick, Shoes, Smithereens, The Minus 5). If "uncle rock" is a legitimate genre, put me on the mailing list.

My favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk, but my #1 book is Michael Azzerad's "Our Band Could Be Your Life." I also want to read more by Sarah Waters, after loving "Tipping the Velvet."

Besides the obvious guy favorites in Fight Club and Shawshank Redemption, I'm partial to Help!, Good Will Hunting, Tourfilm, No Country For Old Men, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway (really, anything David Lynch has done). Happiness is also a favorite, and I want to see more films by Todd Solondz.

I like my TV on DVD: Arrested Development, Weeds, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and The League. Seinfeld will never be topped.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
If that ginger ale at the coffeeshop is just Coke and Sprite mixed together...and how I can prove it.
On a typical Friday night I am
telling myself that I will soon have a quiet Friday night in, as I lock the door and leave for a night of debauchery involving helium masks, restored muscle cars, shots of Malort, and a monacle-wearing monkey named Frederick.

(Seriously, though, I'm usually taking it easy after a busy week).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm temporarily living with my dad while I get my feet on the ground in a new career. It was a necessary move back home in order to leave my last job and focus full-time on the career change.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
a) There's something you're extremely passionate about, even if i don't share that same passion. Tell me all about it and why you consider it as essential as breathing.

b) You have tattoos. Not a requirement, but a major plus. Combine that with glasses and a music fetish, and you've got a pretty good thing going.

c) You want to do things that don't involve alcohol. Believe me, I'm not a prude or a priest - and you can't argue with a well-crafted beer - but there's so much more to do in the Chicago area beyond bar hopping.

d) Apathy toward professional sports isn't a turn-off for you. I like playing sports just fine, but watching them isn't my thing. Some guys can find other ways to be manly.
