Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Peter. I'm a high school music teacher currently residing
in Hyde Park. For me, Hyde Park is an enjoyable place to live as it
is much less congested than the north side.
I play several instruments, primarily trumpet and guitar and enjoy
spending my free time practicing one of those two. If I'm not doing
something with music I enjoy going for walks and listening to
podcasts, going for a run, or going for a bike ride. I'm also a big
tea and coffee drinker so I'll find myself coming back from a walk
with a tea all the time.
I'm pretty sure online dating is a step backwards for humanity.
After having been engaged in the process on and off for the past
few years I feel like I could write a shitty thought catalogue
article about it. It's only a feeling though...
Whatever your view may be I think we can all agree an online date
is great motivation to clean your apartment. Why else would you
need to clean? Especially if everyone is so enamored and attached
to their screens engaged in a Netflix marathon... I feel like we're
becoming the mindless society described in 1950's science
fiction... at the moment of writing this I'm thinking of Ray
Bradbury's Farenheit 451.
Anyways, I'm looking to meet someone who's not completely terrible
and enjoys things other than Netflix and themselves.... Also, if
you shower and clean your apartment like I do you can move to the
front of the line.

Figuring out how to be a stay at home dad.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music, and avoiding questions that force you to brag. Who wants to
self promote super hard okc? I know I'm awesome I don't need a list
of things to further inform people.. They can just judge me on my
appearance and then read further to decide if they want to know
'What I'm really good at.' For fucks sake.
The first things people usually notice about me

My eyes, my beard, my height, and my personality.
I feel this section is expressly meant to give people the chance to
be flirty. To point out an attractive feature.... but that's
different based on different perceptions. Okay... so, you decide
and tell me. Isn't that the fun of it?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Remember what life was like before cell phones... You went over to
a friends house and knocked on their door... You memorized your
friends numbers. We had a list of numbers taped inside the cereal
cabinet. It was super exciting and meaningful to add a number to
that list... And painful to cross one off. What has happened to our
brains now that we don't get these types of experiences?
Here's another thing.... this is just my perception and opinion so
comments and concerns are invited. Some people just don't put down
their cell phone for 10 seconds to have an interaction with you...
our default has become to think people who interact are strange and
non interaction has become more of a norm.
Freshly Prepared Food.
I recently had a life changing slice of pizza at Whole Foods. As I
approached the pizza counter I saw, to my dismay, that they were
out of cheese pizza as the gentleman in front of me had ordered two
pieces. I politely inquired as to how long a new pizza would take,
knowing that a fresh one might be life changing. A short five
minute cook time and a checkout line later I found myself sexually
devouring one of the most beautiful triangles of cheese I have ever
had. It just makes me think about how almost anything is better
fresh... but not like that 90s 'Fresh to your Family from Jewel'
fresh... like make it and then put it directly in my mouth fresh.
The other thing that is really great fresh is popcorn... I worked
at a movie theater for five years and can attest to this fact...
fresh popcorn is the only popcorn. Everything else is hot nonsense.
On a typical Friday night I am
