My self-summary
I always imagined I'd write something radically different about myself on one of these sites -- you know, not-the-standard "here's who I am, haha, aren't I funny and random?" speech -- but when it comes down to it, everyone is just as self-conscious as everyone else. Probably not a big deal.

It'd be much more interesting if these "about you" sections were less free-form. Oh, sure, you can tell who's got personality (and commitment; aka willing to type something unique about themselves) with this method . . . but how often do you get to know the person, versus what-the-person-wants-to-display-to-the-world? I'm all for "best foot forward", but frankly, I'd rather hear about your goals on the phone or on a date. There's no way to do someone's hopes and dreams justice in a text box online.

I guess I should list at least a few characteristics (as if you've not yet gotten somewhat of an idea of who I am from the first two, admittedly sarcastic, paragraphs) --

I'm bright, very outspoken, and (would like to think of myself as) funny. Good dinner date conversation is a MUST. I value openness, passion, and creativity, and I swear -- I'm a fraction of as lame as that just probably just sounded to you (ok, so, a pretty substantial fraction, but really... it's tough not to come off as bland, unless you're trying to seem radical and quirky [and thus, VERY cliche], which is just as bad as coming across as lame).
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated in 2008 with an Economics degree from a top-30 university and now work self-employed as a futures trader and technical trading consultant from my condo on the east side of Cincinnati.

In college, I was a head writing tutor and really love everything involved with authorship, academic papers or otherwise, although I hardly ever write anymore as a hobby. Too busy with numbers (yuck) and clients (much easier than numbers!)...

Despite those two smarmy paragraphs, I'm not a tool. Promise.
I’m really good at
Finance and trading, music production/recording, editorial/mechanics and content tutoring, verbal declarations of hatred directed towards cheesy TV shows, senselessly staying up really late and impressing people with my modesty (ha).

Writing too much on my online dating profile, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear my heart on my sleeve. It sucks sometimes. Sorry about that (not really).

Talkative. Abstract. Inquisitive. Sillier than you'd expect. Observant. That I have really long eyelashes (so I've been told?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Perhaps I'm a bit of a contrarian at heart -- I know that saying this will absolutely NOT aid me on this site in any way, but I'm not the biggest fan of Led Zepplin (i know! and I'm a guitarist... the irony...). Not to say they weren't absolutely critical to the progression of modern music, I'm just not as into it as everyone else -- and more importantly, I'm not like other Reds-hat-wearing barhopping, whitebread guys from Cincinnati.

I love dystopian [edit: just realized 'dystopic' wasn't a word] + existentialist literature -- Orwell and Huxley (and NOT just 1984 and Brave New World... they wrote other great stuff too!). Pop psych books are funny -- like bubble gum... some flavor, no filling -- but just for the cheese factor.
The six things I could never do without
A cat, a guitar, a computer, a good pillow, a challenge, and a close friend.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the stars in the sky. I won't even try to explain this in a text box... and I promise, I'm not a space geek nor astrologer.
On a typical Friday night I am
...indifferent to cover charges and $7/vodka.

Wishing girls wanted dates instead of drinks.

Laughing at how horribly misguided most girls' flirtations are... (not in a mean way; we guys are awfully bad at figuring out how to flirt with girls, too)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I had a closer relationship with my parents --

my dad passed away when I was nine, and my mom lives on Maui (south shore).
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–28
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You think I'm interesting, not just 'hawt'.
