My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m the guy who gets up early in the morning, when the world is quiet, to go running because I enjoy being the loudest thing on the street. The one who spent time reading and writing rather than learning to properly swing a baseball bat. The one who can kick a goal or two in a match, and still be able to sew on your buttons. Culture junkie, news addict, and music aficionado, I spend too much time listening to NPR and reading the paper.

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 yogurt 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.

I also do new play development for the literary departments of two theatre companies and work as a freelance writer.
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 stitching 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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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 you ask over a drink? We'll debate my 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 cup of coffee and thoughtful conversation (or a really bad pun).
4. My planner; wristwatch.
5. The news/NPR/BBC4.
6. Music.
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.

Also, what academics and literary theorists will do 200-300 years from now, when there's little-to-no paper trail to follow while studying the great minds of our age.

[Admittedly not "a lot of time," but a fair bit. It's an occupational hazard of someone in academia who spends his time examining original foul papers. I much prefer taking notes, keeping a calendar, and writing longhand.]
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going for a run, enjoying drinks with my roommates, cooking a meal. Winning at Scrabble, losing terribly at Risk. Enjoying good conversation and laughs with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I keep post-it notes in random places to remind myself to do (or avoid) things.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy solid conversation, good coffee, a variety of musical styles, have an opinion on the Oxford comma, like to run/ stay active, debate politics and pop culture, or cooking.

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