My self-summary
I've been reading Modern Romance and rethinking how I do this part since I haven't been too happy with how I've been presenting myself/how I've been engaging with online dating.

I've been living in New York for the better part of a decade. I've covered a lot of the basics (apartment, friends, job, hobbies) but only recently started to apply myself towards on another New Yorker rite of passage; dating. Which means online dating since approaching strangers in bars is something I am less likely to do.

I'm not particularly tall, nor do I have a beard, or any pets (though I do live with a dog). I'm also not particularly funny, well read, nor am I divinely motivated to saving the world or anything else of that heroic nature. My grammar and spelling is also average. I also like board games. And phone games. And only occasionally take them too seriously.

I'm trained in design (Architecture) and fine arts (Glass) and as such, I spend a lot of time looking at both glamorous and mundane things. I have a job (in Architecture) that I also care a lot about, though I rarely take it home.

A few years ago during a 'say yes' phase of my life, I started Swing dancing. Despite never playing any sports or doing anything remotely athletic (the ~3 weeks I joined the Lacrosse team doesn't count), this passing interest has turned into a pretty major part of my life.

Before straying too far off from the original point (I go on tangents a lot): I'm a real person who cares about the details, getting things right, and being a good person. I enjoy the thrill of getting to know someone, celebrating shared interests, and hopefully, also learning something new. I like being forthcoming and I don't make promises I can't keep. I have had the good fortune to be involved with enough amazing people to realize something special when I see it.
What I’m doing with my life
Architecting, dancing, cooking, drinking with a side of gaming--not all at the same time.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, drawing, dancing, making homefries, and origami.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that there's nothing to really notice. My entire middle and high school career was dedicated to as agreeable and innocuous as possible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"Normal hipster shit that everyone else likes." -Someone else's profile
Six things I could never do without
The six things I like to have on a regular basis:

more hugs. like you mean it.

dental hygiene--well, normal hygiene too
my iPhone
comfortable shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from the week.

Cooking and catching up on my shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm trying to be better at OkCupid.
You should message me if
you don't live too far away from me (let's say Manhattan/Brooklyn) and would like to meet in person sooner rather than later, you know, like, a real date. And probably after making sure the other person isn't a murderer or something.
The two of us
