Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
O, where to begin. I'm an affable academic who is addicted to
procrastination and loves hanging out in coffee shops. I am a
pretty well-rounded atypical guy, who doesn't really seem to fit

I have eclectic tastes and lots of hobbies: I have Red Sox season
tickets, love good beer and wine and food, have a newly-redone
kitchen that needs more reasons to cook, collect coins, write and
solve puzzles of many types, read myriad liberal political blogs,

My greatest asset in life is the friends I have built up and can
rely on. I'm usually the counselor for all my friends and students,
and I love that role. I pretty much think that cuddling up to
friends and loved ones is perfection, and I am one of those strange
people that gets relaxed by giving massages to other people. The
most fun time is getting to know all about a new person and making
all those connections, so drop me a line and I can start to ask you
things and fill in the blanks about me.
I am Nerdy, Sensitive, and Caffeinated

solving puzzles, making Sporcle quizzes, giving friends advice,
wasting time, never sleeping, neck and head massages, buying
beautiful handmade glass and pottery, and baking lemon squares.

because I was so worried about being bad at it.
