My self-summary
7/29/14: I had some extra time so I just put together a quick, fun, anonymous survey because I'm curious about the female perspective of OKCupid. It's 10 questions, multiple choice. If you're curious and have 2-3 minutes, check it out here:

Hi ladies! Tired of lazy, misspelled emails from guys who don't read your profile? How about the one-liners, unoriginal copy/pasted messages, sex propositions, and old creepy men hitting on you?

Let's face it... it definitely takes some effort, timing, and possibly luck in this crazy world of online dating. But hey, nothing of any real value comes easy in life, right? Somehow it's all worth it when you find the right person.

Anyway, I'm confident there's some amazing guys still out there. If you continue to read my profile below, hopefully you'll consider me one. :)

*** Here's what you really want to know: ***
I'm fun, genuine, happy, nicer than most people, don't live with my parents, and have my life together. Also, I promise you that I have a great career, excellent teeth, a full head of hair, I've never been arrested, don't have any STDs, don't smoke or do drugs, and I'm not a player, cheater, or stage-5 clinger!
What I’m doing with my life
Born and raised on the NW side of Chicago, I lived in Wicker Park after college and currently reside in nearby Des Plaines. I go back and forth on wanting to return to the city... maybe this summer.

I like to keep active, which includes all the things everyone mentions (running, working out, playing/watching sports, live music, fests, movies, traveling, exploring, continually learning and challenging myself, etc).

If you're into sports, I follow the Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, and Illini. I'm always up for a friendly rivalry though! I also play on a few softball and volleyball teams for fun.

I'm close with my family. They raised me with values, so I always try to do the right thing. I care about things like the environment, animals, and helping others.

At the same time, I'm really just a chill guy so I can get pretty ridiculous and have fun in nearly any situation. I also tend to be sarcastic and playful when I really click with someone, so hopefully you can take it and dish it out!
I’m really good at
- Playing most sports
- Working with computers and electronic gadgets
- Being an awesome uncle to my nephews and nieces
- Coming up with fun and creative Halloween costumes
- Paying attention to details (your new outfit, nail color, etc)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm an athletic guy, with a unique shade of dark auburn hair, and I'm very approachable/friendly.

Oh yeah, and I look 5-10 years younger than my age. Sadly, I think this is the #1 reason some girls overlook me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I prefer classics like The Great Gatsby, Catch-22, etc.

Movies: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Anchorman, Super Troopers, Hangover, Office Space, Wedding Crashers, Dumb & Dumber, Fight Club, Matrix, Star Wars, Inception, Eternal Sunshine, Serendipity, Life of Pi, Back to the Future.

Shows: The League, HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, Parks & Rec, New Girl, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Whale Wars, Seinfeld, Family Guy.

Music: Love most 90's music and alternative, rock, and some pop. Favorite artists include Foo Fighters, No Doubt, Weezer, 311, Linkin Park, Incubus, Pearl Jam, Chevelle, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry, J-Timberlake. I like many other genres too... there's a time and place for almost everything.

Food: Italian and Mexican cuisines. I could eat pizza or Chipotle almost every day if I didn't try to eat somewhat healthy.
The six things I could never do without
- Family/friends (for support, love, and laughter)
- Sports/exercise (for entertainment and health)
- Music/concerts (for relaxation and entertainment)
- Job (for challenges, knowledge, and income)
- Computer/phone (for communication, entertainment, and info)
- Car (for transportation)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Girls, the weekend, my career, the universe, ways I can improve myself, and the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, on a date, or at the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Unlike some, dating and finding the right girl for me IS a priority in my life right now. I really want a cool girlfriend to enjoy the summer with! I promise I'll be an excellent boyfriend in return and we'll do lots of fun things. :)

I've actually had good luck on this site in the recent past. However, since my last relationship ended and I returned here in May, roughly 71 days have passed. And in that time:
- I've sent messages to 84 girls (40 are still active today)
- 42 of the messages were read (only 50%)
- 30 took a moment and at least viewed my profile (a mere 36%)
- 3 have replied (wow... 3.5%)
Ugh! Sadly, these results seem to be fairly typical. What in the world has changed so much from 6 months ago?!? I shudder to think about all the time and effort I've put in here. I am slowly losing motivation..... good thing all it takes is 1 person to change everything.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're cute, fun, and like my profile! (It's really that simple.)

Or if you don't know what to say, you can also rate me 4-5 stars. I'll get a notification and will gladly take the initiative to message you if there's mutual interest and the timing is right.

Oh, and one last thing... Sadly, there's too many lazy people, fake profiles, and spam messages on here. If you message me first, please begin it with some asterisks like this (****) so it stands out and I know you took the time to read my profile.

Good luck to everyone!
