** Men of OkCupid NYC: your brethren on the fairer coast are putting you to shame with their tech-themed witticisms and insights. Where are the up-and-coming screenwriters and practicing novelists among you? Do most of you like being so instantly forgettable that 20 seconds after reading your message and hitting the trash icon, it's as if you never existed? Do you too not tire of this endless parade of milquetoast-ey mediocrity? I thought New York men were dark and brash and mysterious and chillingly intelligent, but perhaps they've changed for the worse since I've been gone. It's all well and good to strike while the iron his hot, but maybe strike with something a little more, well, striking, than "hey, you seem chill. sup?"!**
Usually, I really feel excited about everything I can and will do. Occasionally, I get bored of feeling excited all the time, so I get excited about being bored for a change.
I like nature and cities but not suburbs. I've had conversations that lasted a double-digit number of hours more than once.
I'm very open to new ideas, but careful in assessing them. Basically, I think the ability to judge is what separates humans from like, rocks. When I hear that someone is non-judgmental, I imagine their brain is perpetually full of cheery elevator music. A good quality in an elevator, but not a date.
I think describing as action as being done "effortlessly" should usually be an insult. Most people need to stretch themselves more, including me.
