My self-summary
Hi, not sure what to write here, so I'll try to keep it short and sweet:

***Brief update 11/05/16: Just moved to Central West End, and noticed roughly 1,000 potential date spots within walking distance, should anyone be interested in familiarizing me with the area (or vice versa, once I develop a rudimentary internal map of the place... Kinda reminds me of Paris, insofar as a STL locale can do so.)***

Where to begin... I was born in the Year of the Monkey, a twin (fraternal), at exactly 8:30 a.m. (I only know this because I was a minute older than my brother Keith.)

Hmm, that's probably too far back for a profile description. Let me skip ahead: I graduated Cum Laude from Mizzou, with a Bachelor's in Finance.

Skip ahead further to present day and you'll find me gainfully employed in the field of Corporate Finance for a Fortune 500 company.

Skip back some years and you'll find me, broke, selling plasma twice a week during college, or reading at my work study job in Ellis Library, all the while contemplating my future as a bestselling novelist...

I could do this back and forth for a while, but I'll stop and get to the point:

I'm an active, creative guy who has grown a bit disenchanted with the STL scene. Not terribly so, but given that it seems I've done and seen it all in this locale, OkCupid seems like a fun way to meet interesting people. I also kinda like the idea of sparking a conversation with someone new while we're both moderately sober, and without needing to shout over bar music just to hear one another.

Aside from my day job, I'm an author with one novel under my belt, and am presently working on my second book.

If interested, feel free to look up my novel on Amazon: Continuous Life by Kevin Adams.

Anyway, hope you found these snippets about myself utterly riveting. If so, shoot me an email and we'll get to know each other better. If you weren't enthralled, feel free to message me and we'll discuss possible revisions over dinner.

I'll shut up now, but I do hope to hear from some cool, fun, smart, funny, attractive women.
What I’m doing with my life
Reading and writing and drinking and partying and dating and swimming and biking and working and traveling and laughing...
I’m really good at
Not to be immodest but I give a mean massage...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I hear that a lot. In fact, nearly every acquaintance who hasn't seen me in a while says this upon seeing me again: "Are you still growing!?"

I hope not...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Regarding music, I'm a fan of all genres: Alternative, Hip Hop, R&B, Heavy Metal, Punk, Oldies, et cetera... I don't limit myself to any one style, which I imagine is the case for most people. To list a few favorites off the top of my head: Eminem, Alicia Keys, The Pharcyde, Tupac, Third Eye Blind, Rage Against the Machine, Guns and Roses, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Something Corporate, The Format, Weezer, Neutral Milk Hotel, Dashboard Confessional, The Decemberists, Beck, Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys, White Stripes, Sublime, Nirvana, et cetera... I'm a big fan of the band 311, try and see them whenever they come to town; I saw them last at Riverport Amphitheatre (I still call Verizon Amphitheatre by its original name), and am always up for a good concert.

I'm a huge fan of stand-up comedy. I saw Louis C.K. and Daniel Tosh live back-to-back in the same weekend, to give you an idea how much I love stand-up. Other comedians I've seen live include Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Mike Birbiglia, Dave Attell, and the late George Carlin.

I try to limit my TV intake, but I do DVR/download/Hulu/Netflix some of my favorites like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, South Park, The Simpsons, Futurama, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, True Blood, Scrubs, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It's Always Sunny, Seinfeld, The Walking Dead, Scandal, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, Sherlock, Workaholics, Downton Abby, Parks and Rec, Orange Is The New Black (or OITNB), House of Cards...

Unfortunately the list is longer than I care to admit. Hell I even watch some CW shows: The Flash, Supernatural (regarding the latter, a girl I dated turned me onto it, as I apparently--according to her--look a little like the character Sam. Irrespective of its accuracy, it was a compliment I reluctantly accepted. I mean, he and I are virtually the same proportions--6'4", 210 lbs. Plus, come on, that show is just plain fun! Like The Flash! :D)

I'm an avid reader, with my literary tastes spanning the full spectrum from F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Ray Bradbury, John Updike, Philip Roth, Thomas Pynchon to Stephen King, Douglas Coupland, Christopher Pike, Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris, Kate Atkinson...

As for favorite food, I'd have to say my favorite food is food.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen
Water
Food
Books
Movies
Heroin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You.

Don't be coy, you know who you are.

No more nonsense. Let's put an end to this game of cat and mouse, and fall in love already! Or at least fall in "like." :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, reading, on a date--all at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This seems like a dangerous topic for people trying to make a good first impression before ever having met...

Okay, if you must know something: I will cry--hard--during a powerful movie or book, but only in private, and only if it's REALLY potent. I literally had to get up and leave the room while watching Big Fish with a girlfriend...
You should message me if
This one's mainly for girls, right? I mean, not to sound bitter, but I'm pretty sure the dynamic is that the girls sit back and sift through a flooded inbox, whereas the guys spend considerable chunks of time casting out lines, hoping for a bite...

If I were to answer this honestly, I would say "You should message me if you're comfortable with the concept of online dating (by which I mean, forget about the perceived "stigma" already; as far as I'm concerned the stigma is either A) Attached by outsiders who've never tried online dating, or B) Wholly inside one's overly self-conscious own head), and you should message me if you are not averse to an in-person, brief meeting--in a public place--sometime in the near future. Could be as simple as a cup of coffee or a beer. I just think it's important not to waste each other's time. We should find out if there's in-person attraction/chemistry before we spend three weeks messaging back and forth..."
