My goofy and nerdy sides show themselves frequently, be it belting out 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' at work or being able to identify the Meet The Press guests by only their voices. I'm also a rather pragmatic person; most of my clothes are made by Wrangler, LL Bean, Woot (tshirts), and companies that are Kohl's suppliers. (Note: I match colors, have shined shoes, and tie full windsor knots!) I'd really like to find 'her,' and am not looking for a relationship just for the sake of being in one. With that said, if we go out a few times and have fun but romance isn't happening, I'll probably welcome you to my circle.
One more thing: efficiency is the killer feature of online dating. My ideal woman has these attributes:
-athletic or fit, and plans to be so for life
-enjoys warm and cold weather alike. DC is hot enough!
-appreciates sarcasm and joshing. Banter is good!
-affectionate and cuddly
-not ultraconservative or superultraliberal
-likes healthy food...and supports my likeness for milkshakes
-may or may not want kids. I know it's a deal-breaker for many.
If you're looking for an honest, goofy, loyal guy who knows too much SNL and sends Thanksgiving cards, I could be your man!
-Spouting random knowledge in jeopardy/trivia. I'm also a coach of my school's academic team. We're kind of awesome!
-Tearing the hell out of a crab (for a native midwesterner)
Black Keys, Paul & Art, Lyle Lovett, Alicia Keys, My Morning Jacket...pretty eclectic musical tastes. I dislike country, but will endure it if you are a fan. I enjoy way too many movies to list them all. Three that come to mind: Moneyball, 21 Jump Street, and Dogma. I'm also a big fan of Between Two Ferns.
TV: SNL, American Ninja Warrior, Parks & Rec, Meet The Press, and The New Girl (yup, I'm very comfortable in my masculinity).
My favorite reads include Brave New World, Frankenstein, Holidays on Ice, and Esquire (for the stories, not the $200 belts in the fashion section. If you buy $200 belts, we're probably not a good match because that's insane). I'm pretty hooked on Deadspin(.com) and, probably like everyone else in DC, the Onion.
