What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it.

Attempting to challenge my mind and body almost every day. Consciously thinking about how I'm interacting with the world, and trying thoughtfully to make it a better place for all of us to live in, without trying to make those changes in a manner that will eventually burn me out from thinking/engaging in those types of things too much.

I'm (one of the many) young professionals in Portland who works- sometimes a bit too much. But I do cool stuff! Designing buildings is really nifty! And I work with great people in the architecture/engineering/construction industry! So while work is sometimes really stressful, it's also pretty darn rewarding.

When I'm not at work, I can usually be found doing one of the following: biking aimlessly around town (or out of town); walking long distances; attending a lecture; attending a political meeting; helping out at the tool library; browsing books at Powells; reading- somewhere...; drinking tea; grabbing a pint of cider at the pub; chatting with strangers; chatting with friends; building things; gardening (/killing plants); contemplating the fact that I have too many hobbies and interests; trying to figure out "life as an adult".

Or I'm eating.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I'm a bit offputting. I have some thoughts as to why.... don't let it bother you! Deal with it for 20 minutes, then realize that it's totally not a true statement, or tell me why I come off as offputting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
After many years spent reading political non-fiction, I've rediscovered my voracious appetite for a good story- pretty much I've been reading whatever is recommended or on sale at Powell's or whichever other bookstore I happen to stop in.

Food: Some foods hate me, but whatever- I can usually find a gluten free option almost anywhere. I could eat Thai every day, Indian is great, and of course anything made with fresh local veggies and fruits rocks my world. I've considered raising rabbits as a meat source, but haven't yet learned how to skin them....

Music? Turn it on, and I'll probably be bouncing my head around and singing in a few minutes, no matter what it is. Although to be quite honest I spend a lot of time listening to classic rock. In Portland, this means I am made fun of fairly frequently.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Will that structure stand up in an earthquake? What is the next thing I'm going to eat? Did I just say something that makes me look like an idiot? Am I about to say something that makes me look like an idiot? Are you flirting with me, or are we just having good conversation? What am I going to do with myself after work/this weekend? How is it that people are so awesome?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"Typical Friday night?"


Possibly either at the gym/in the pool/on a bike ride, at home cooking, at the bar for happy hour, and whichever of the above, typically in bed pretty early because I'm exhausted after a long week. This question should ask about Saturdays. Or- to be more Portland specific- "your last worknight of the week".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Often I forget how old I am... then OKC reminds me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You would like to engage in one of the following activities:
-Wander around Forest Park, Mt Tabor, or another local park.
-Bicycle ride!
-Beverage (adult or otherwise) on a patio in the sun.
-Portland Art Museum?
-Dinner and the symphony!

Look, I'm making this super easy- you can literally just pick an activity and send me a message saying "let's go do X sometime", with a suggested time and date! I'm far more interested in meeting people in real life then spending forever messaging back and forth. If we click- as friends or otherwise- great! If not, at least we got out of the house/did something different for a while!
