My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Philly ed reformer. Handsome pragmatist, serial absurdist. 5'7" (I know, I know..) but have the manners and charm of a guy who is at least 6'1". Hungry and foolish. Lookin' for a not-so-nice girl to have a nice argument with. Fitness/tattoo friendly. Open to a relationship if things go well but if not, that's okay too. 215 hustle for life. I'm also a beardy mcbeardytonface.

I like punctuating extreme activity with unstructured down-time. Spur of the moment road trips, Faustian overreach, lazy conversations about social structures under the stars, movie nights, passionate learning of new fascinations, trying to live in the moment, and nursing drinks to rockabilly or blues music in dimly-lit places. I love the silly, the surreal, weakness, over-thinking about things, and owning awkwardness. I also like to take a good risk, as evinced by me trying to find meaningful connections over the Internet.

Character references upon request.

I know, I'm disappointed too.

However: jewy nose, big glasses, well-knotted necktie or bow-tie, obnoxiously big vocabulary.

Gender roles, race, privilege, labeling, and the trial of miles/the miles of trials. How many avocados it'll take before I end up vegetarian.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I've got a type (feminist, loud, no-fucks-given, maybe tall) but type is just an excuse we give ourselves to keep us from taking a chance. Or you're just interested in being an occasional +1 to fun occasions.

Odds are, I'll be the one that messages you first. Wish me luck! Risks are exciting as hell.
