Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I care a lot about, and am involved in, Chicago's non-mainstream
music and arts scene. I DJ, sometimes, and I do sound engineering
for local (and not so local) bands. Despite all of this, I'm not
much of a hipster. Really.
I might be funny or smart (these are up for debate, of course). But
I'll never get to a point where I know everything I want to know or
have done everything I think is worth doing. Why be boring?
I'm looking for someone who's creative, intelligent, and passionate
about what they do. If you're a social activist, grad student,
artist, or musician -- just to name a few possibilities -- then
we'd probably get along well. I like people who can hold their own
in a conversation, challenge me to think about things in different
ways, and who enjoy debating everything from intellectual topics to
whatever was on TV last night.
Hopefully we'll each have different interests that end up
complementing one another, although a mutual love of Indian food
will go a long way. Well, that and an evil sense of humor.
I'm honest and upfront and like people who are the same way. I'm
impressed by people who take the initiative, aren't afraid to act,
and are willing to take risks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently a consultant for nonprofits, but I'm never going to rule
out any unexpected life changes if they sound exciting.

If you want to. And it's a kind gesture to do so. I've never
understood women who can't make the first move. If you haven't then
why not take a chance?
