I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food. I love to cook and I sometimes write about food, so my social media feeds are basically just food porn & cats (very little overlap there, though, thank goodness ;).
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, during the school year, I seem to go out drinking with my co-workers a lot. They're a fun lot, but I'd be just as happy hanging at home with the right someone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shot the sheriff. But I did NOT shoot the deputy.
You should message me if
You want to. That said, I am pretty selective and know what I like and what I don't, so please don't get all butt-hurt if I don't respond.

Also, to be totally clear from the get-go: I am NOT looking for a one-time hookup... unless you are exceptionally good-looking and smart (or at least exceptionally good-looking and are willing to just shut up and do what you're here for ;-).
The two of us
