Rather than define and limit myself for easy consumption, feel free to say hey if something in this profile catches your eye.
OK, a few generalities: Midwest-transplant. Musician. Romantic. Endlessly curious. I value quality over quantity, time over money and integrity/kindness over everything. I turn my phone off frequently.
this may help: INFP.
If I was sure there was a God, I would thank him/her/it/abominable snow monster everyday for the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. Ditto for: Arrested Development, Louie, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. If you know and loved the movie, "Waking Life", what size is your ring finger? R.I.P. Tim Russert.

I'm on a bit of a non-fiction kick right now. Just finished reading "Proust was a Neuroscientist". Currently on "Thinking, Fast and Slow".
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity - "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
Also: the anonymous, de-humanizing, online-catalogue feel to this site often turns my stomach.
As well as: Does the fact that my favorite winter pastime is drinking hot chocolate and watching the ice skaters fall on their asses make me a terrible person? Or just an honest sociologist? (Please don't suggest ice skating as an activity. While I'd actually like to, karma has been waiting for that moment for YEARS)
And: the packs of wild, vicious dogs that control most of America's major cities. Why is no one talking about this?
Is anyone else mourning the end of a brilliant cultural phenomena = Stephen Colbert?
Preferably, you don't text at dinner but do always say thank you to the waiter. The ability to say, "That's a good point" in a heated debate is an incredibly rare and wonderful personality trait, not because I want to hear it, but because I can say it. People devoid of humor, personality and curiosity worry me.
Also, if you like dirty, mustachioed hipster guys wearing their little sisters' jeans, I'm not your guy. I'm a creative/artistic person who values individuality, I don't need a trendy uniform to show that. Especially one that cuts off the circulation to my crotch. Let's go ahead and add "crotch" to the list of words best NOT used on a dating profile. Crotch.
