Worked sucked today and I just had a pupusa (OK, two pupusas) so my
brainpower is waning. How to describe myself in this far corner of
the interwebs? Look, I'm probably a lot like you. We didn't settle
for that college relationship (only religious nuts and people from
the Midwest change diapers at 22, right?) and instead dedicated our
mid 20's to globetrotting adventures and unchecked, selfish fun.
Somewhere around 27, the career bulb flicked on, and we dove into
competitive New York to claw and bite our way into some pursuit of
The Happy-ness. We work hard. We drink hard. We love to exercise.
We struggle to describe our affinity for New York to the friends
back home, and instead default to "yeah, great restaurants, TONS of
diversity" because how do you really elaborate the love/hate
relationship with your neighbor's reggaeton mix tape? You know, the

50. Or, like, super weird... and we totally got shot down the last

recurring self summary fodder on this site (for guys, I assume this
is "Hey ladies, I'm laid back, love to work out, love to travel,
you know, just a pretty mellow guy!" For girls, it's "I love
sarcasm (really?) and chapstick, running and my yoga mat.) Long
story long, hey I'm just like you. I'm like, you know, laid back,
love to work out, love to travel, you know, just a pretty mellow

Wow, there sure are a lot of women claiming to be "bisexual" on
this website. And what's up with capitalizing random words in the
self summary? ("I work in Fashion. I am an Actor and a Art
