I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

plus I mix a mean guacamole.
The first things people usually notice about me

(favorite aspect of okcupid? when women identify which one they are
in their photos. my take is: if a guy can't simply look and figure
out the difference between a) you and b) a group of other humans
who are not you -- this is probably not a guy you should be dating.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* all-night makeout sessions
* seeing where the conversation goes
* dichotomies, juxtapositions, and oxymorons
* well-worded writing
* the city of Chicago
* genius fucking women with sharp tongues & bold spirits
