My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i've changed this many times because it's hard getting these things right. the problem is that i'm too self-aware to pretend to offer an honest description of myself--so i might as well start by admitting this, that i find self-summaries nearly impossible to write. on the other hand, i don't want to come across as overly cynical--because i'm here, obviously hoping to meet someone. but dating scares me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
originally from connecticut, i lived in ithaca, new york for awhile, before moving to chicago to begin grad school in political science. last year i returned to ct for an indeterminate amount of time.

i was recently hired as a substitute teacher. i can't wait to start.

when not writing or 'doing research', i enjoy spending time with/taking care of my dogs (a pointer and a yorkshire terrier).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
following the news (local and global), discussing politics, debating social issues & philosophical points, both large and small... challenging the untenable assumptions behind certain arguments, exposing contradictions and paradoxes, then getting caught in my own hypocrisy, exhausting myself and finally burning out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
it's not healthy for me to think/worry about this stuff. people don't usually notice anything strange (on the outside), i don't think... ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i can't enjoy bourgeois culture without suffering certain guilt. i appreciate cultural work that's socially conscious and/or politically interesting/insightful on some level. but when that's not available (which is usually) i'll settle easily for whatever is on tv or online.

i like to think i've got decent taste in movies, music, foods, etc., but listing my favorites in these areas isn't the way i like to define or express myself ...i like remaining open to new things, to change.

however, for the sake of providing a possible conversation starter, i'll mention that, while scraping the bottom of the Netflix barrel... i discovered a cache of british detective dramas that i'm determined to get through: Midsome Murders, Agatha Christie's Miss Marple & Poirot, Broadchurch, Inspector Morse, Lewis, Luther....

currently listening to sleater-kinney's "No Cities to Love"
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- taco and beau, my two canine companions
-- full beard (which i've had ever since i could grow one)
-- library access (being able to recall books that are checked out)
-- utopian fantasies (class war, punishing oligarchic elites, etc.)
-- venezuela's hugo chavez (R.I.P!) (topic of gradschool research)

that's enough for now...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-- the prospect of revolution in the U.S. during my lifetime.
-- how to reinforce fence to prevent dogs from escaping

these profiles have a way of making everyone sound self-obsessed and narcissistic, so i think it's important to say that i feel concern for and care a lot about people, humanity. that said, i'm not exactly a 'people person'. i like to be alone, it's probably true that i care more about humanity in the abstract, than concrete individuals around me
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not out on a date--isn't that what you want to know? i'm usually working, sometimes i'll see friends. occasionally i'll be sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i know more about psychoanalysis than i care to let on (old interest).

i'd probably feel a lot more confident if i were in better shape. this is something i need to make a higher priority, among other things
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you can be persistent and bold enough to pull me out of my current non-dating state. sorry, it's the only way this is going to happen.

also, be aware that the more perfect you are, and the better you write, the more time it'll take for me to write back to you. if you know a way around this problem, please inform me immediately.
