My self-summary
I had not anticipated the massive hit my ego would take when I signed up for online dating. This entire process is horrifying. On the other hand, I have no idea where else I would meet people now that I'm in my thirties and self employed. I guess, I could try all the places I met people in my twenties, but it seems harder now that it did then. I suppose this is why people get married.
What I’m doing with my life
Two years ago I quit my dead end job and opened a small business with a friend. This mostly means I make less money than I did previously and work a lot more hours.
I’m really good at
Over thinking things. Reaching the point of decision paralysis. Finding problems with things that haven't even been prototyped yet and may work just fine. Accidentally being condescending. Intentionally being condescending. (Being condescending means you act like you are superior to others.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, maybe? That my smile is crooked? My barely restrained rage lurking just below the surface?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It makes me sound like a jerk, but I find it incredibly annoying that we still think the media others consume is meaningful in any way.

Regardless, I'll play along.

The books of Margaret Atwood, Philip Roth, Jonathan Franzen, Nick Hornby, and others.

The music of CAKE, The National, Kid Cudi, David Bowie, Queen, Eminem, Citizen Cope, Damien Rice, and others.

The films of P.T. Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers, and others. Plus anything that has Philip Seymour Hoffman in it, or was written by Aaron Sorkin

I don't watch much television. I liked Sopranos and West Wing a lot. Dexter is kind of fun. I'm sure whatever you watch is fine. Does that make us soulmates?
The six things I could never do without
Diet Pepsi (I know, my masculinity is showing)
My friends and family (this seems to be required)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ridiculous things that no one in their right mind cares about. Why can't the Mariners find a left fielder? How is it possible that no one I meet understands a progressive tax? Why did I act like such a bastard for most of my 20s?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working because the deadlines never seem to stop, and I never really feel like I have caught up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes post misogynistic and belligerent personal ads on craigslist just to see who replies.
You should message me if
You are not horrified by my complete lack of social graces.
