My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wax and wane on how to handle these profiles and tend to tinker with them quite a bit. Writing fascinates me, and it’s always interesting to see how people portray themselves through this particular medium (and often more interesting seeing how the actual person aligns with the online persona).

So, summary. I’m a Ravenclaw who likes to hang with the Gryffindors and will probably end up with a Slytherin. I hail from the frozen wastes of New Hampshire, spent the bulk of my twenties in Southern Florida, and have been in NYC for just shy of two and a half years.

I’m at a stage where I’d like to start dating again. I’m still figuring a few things out (primarily professionally/creatively), but I enjoy meeting new people and would ultimately like to find someone to share the experience with. I’m also always on the market for work-out buddies, friends, creative collaborators, or fellow gamers (more on the last two later). Intelligence, creativity, kindness, self-awareness, and sense of humor are all traits that I value (and like to think I possess).

My M.O. with dating apps tends to be to move to the date sooner rather than later in order to avoid falling into the chat limbo that seems so common (particularly to OKCupid). Have a favorite bar? A far-flung “best _______ in NYC” you’ve been wanting to trek to? An exhibit or event you’re keen to check out? Let’s go! If not, I have a few.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I landed a gig in health and fitness on first moving to the city, and it’s done some great things for me, but I’m ready for a change. I’m a writer, in that granular, deep-in-the-soul sense, and really need to start working more on that. I’m also a semi-competitive M:tG player looking to go a little deeper with that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm. Trivia? Word games? Cooking? Reading (both the common-place and Paris is Burning variants)? Using parentheses? I don’t have any trophies or anything, but I tend to be above-average at most things that interest me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. You tell me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Michael Chabon, Bret Easton Ellis, Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Gregory Maguire, Margaret Atwood, Harry Potter and the like

Movies: I have a thing for horror. I enjoy trashy gay comedies a little too much. I get down with the Marvel franchise. Anything with Julianne Moore; I could watch that woman file her nails.

TV: Whedonstuff, Supernatural, Drag Race, most BBC programs (you should watch Black Mirror if you haven’t)

Music: I’m not too picky. Tend to be pretty showtune-centric.

Food: All of the food, please. Seriously.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order…

1.) Games. There’s just something about having a competitive and intellectual outlet which provides social context that really works for me.
2.) Writing. Even when I’m not doing enough about it, I’m thinking about it and it’s affecting my life.
3.) People. This probably factors into the above a bit, but people are just way too interesting not to have around. Friends fall under this heading as well.
4.) Food. I love to eat, I eat a lot. I’ve struck a pretty nice balance between healthy and hedonism. I enjoy cooking, but don’t do it enough, and I love finding new favorites in the city. I’ll spend more transit time on food than I will on most things.
5.) Humor/Laughter. I think that generally “humorously” is the best way to do anything, whether it be address a sensitive topic or get to know someone. Obviously there are times where seriousness is required, but far fewer than most people seem to think.
6.) … I’m hard-pressed to come up with a 6th. Sex, probably? I’m pretty capable of going without for a stretch, but it’s good work if you can get it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How many more hits my profile would get if I could contrive to be photographed on a sailboat, with a dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Magic and then out with friends has become pretty typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty anachronistic when it comes to social media. I don't tend to friend people on Facebook until I actually consider them friends, and I can't for the life of me be bothered to instagram, tumbl, or tweet.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to meet me, duh.
