My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There is something achingly postmodern about being on OKCupid in Cairo. I guess we all take our liberation where we can get it :)

If you want to laugh and then cry that one out over drinks, let me know.

I'm in Cairo for a while for my dissertation research. I've been living here and there (as in around, not fixed in one place) in recent years, but I'm originally from California and people say that's relevant to my overall persona. I accept that :)

I could go on and on about myself (really!), but no one here seems to bother filling out a profile or answering any match questions to establish basic compatibility, so I'll just leave it there.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i unanswered the question about whether i had ever eaten anything out of the trash because i didn't like what it did to my personality profile stats.

ok, i'm not *only* looking for "new friends"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you actually read my profile and it moves you to say something - anything! - beyond "Hi/Wanna chat?/What's your PhD about?"

if you want to make me laugh, you should definitely message me. if you message me without reading my profile, i guarantee i'll be laughing at you (although you'll never know, so no harm done to you!) otherwise, don't worry, i'm laughing with you, and thank you :)

turn ons:
politics (radical but not anarchist)
