Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I still show up for gentleman's practice in the company of lead
dancers, hoping their grace will get stuck in my shoes.
I’m the guy who gets up early in the morning to go running because
I enjoy being the loudest thing on the street. I spent time reading
and writing rather than learning to properly swing a baseball bat,
but if you kick a ball my way I can not embarrass myself on the
Culture junkie, news addict, and music aficionado, I enjoy
listening to NPR and reading the paper.
I'm a guy who talks to my brothers almost every day, just because
we enjoy sharing laughs and clowning around with each other, and
can honestly say that my parents are friends. My friends, in turn,
I treat like family.
I’ve fallen asleep with highlighters in hand and ruined my sheets.
I drink a cup of coffee almost every morning, not because I am
dependent on the caffeine, but because I love the smell. I read
books in threes: a classic work of literature, an old favorite, and
a work of non-fiction.
I can’t imagine a life without academia or art, simply working a
9-5 and crunching numbers. I am the sort of person who color-codes
my notes, eats granola and fruit for breakfast, and always orders
the same coffee - but I’ll try most anything once.
Spontaneity adored, consideration appreciated.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pursuing my doctorate and teaching here in DC. My research in on
the intersection of performance and disability in pop culture. I
also freelance as a writer and dramaturg for a few theater
companies around the country.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A surprising collection of things. From basketball lay-ups and
baking to suturing wounds or singing opera, I think it's important
to cultivate an eclectic set of life skills.
The first things people usually notice about me

Usually my glasses.
Folks ask me all the time if my specs are prescription—apparently
some people wear non-corrective glasses just for the fashion
statement? I'm still trying to figure out if I'm 18 years ahead or
behind the style curve, not that it matters much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Isn't this the question we should ask once we meet? How about we
debate our choices then.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good company.
2. Running and yoga.
3. A good pun.
4. My planner; wristwatch.
5. The news/NPR/BBC4.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm making for supper and running. I love being in a kitchen
to create new dishes, eating, and being active. One fuels the need
for the other. It's a vicious (delicious) cycle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going for a long run. Enjoying a drink with my friends. Cooking
with roommates. Maybe a quiet evening with a book. Hopefully having
a fun, relaxing end to the week, whatever the case may be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I keep post-it notes in random places to remind myself to do (or

You think that romance isn't something that is delightfully quaint
or old-fashioned, and that chivalry isn't dead.
