My self-summary
Hey OkCupid-averse, update: I'm now in a wonderful and loving non-monogamous relationship with an amazing woman, so I should let you know that at the outset. We're poly (ish) and have relationships with others. I'm looking for someone who's okay with that, or would like to be part of a loving relationship like it. We can still be friends too even! :D

I think what sums me up the most is that I love to laugh (and who doesn't right? - SO original of me). But I really do, I'm trying to make a career out of it. I love having a good time, hanging out with friends, and taking on new challenges.

But, at the same time, I'm a pretty sensitive guy. I've been in four serious relationships in my life, and I love giving and feeling loved (yes, I feel corny about writing that). I love cuddling. I love giving gifts and surprises, and when I'm with someone I'm really having feelings for, almost nothing makes me happier than telling her all the unique little things I love about her (I will seriously talk your ear off about what I like about you, I should work for Hallmark).

If you're interested in giggling until your face hurts, having a ton of fun, and seeing how much mischief we can get into, I'm your man! :)
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Chicago to pursue doing stand-up and working in business development. I work downtown and take both seriously.

I have a lot of creative goals, and working toward them gives me a lot of meaning. I can't seem to see some beautiful art, especially performance art, without feeling motivated to chip away at them even more.
I’m really good at
Laughing and making others laugh! Check it out:

(If you REALLY want to laugh check this out:

I'm good at making someone feel good :) I'm also good at being on stage. I'm also good at mixed martial arts. No for real, watch the video here: I'm the guy in red hair (which was dyed crazy for the fight)
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, and talking loudly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Brave New World, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Fight Club, Myths to Live By, The Enchiridion, Slaughterhouse Five, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Movies: Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Braveheart, About a Boy, Love Actually, The Mothman Prophesies, Fight Club, Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music (not a joke)

Music: So much, but particularly jazz, and particularly John Coltrane. Camera Obscura, Feist, The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Joe Dassin, The Chromatics

Food: Meat and potatoes guy, but I'll eat anything. Sushi, Thai, French, and of course BBQ
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends and family
2. Jokes
3. Good talks (especially intellectual)
4. Exercise & geting outside
5. Wonderful meals
6. Great beer & good drinks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why things are the way they are, and funny things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to MMA or Crossfit. If not then then I'm doing comedy somewhere. And if I'm not doing either of those things I'm having a blast with friends. I'm probably not staying out too late either - I probably have a long run in the morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite being gregarious and performing on stage, I'm really a pretty shy guy.
You should message me if
You appreciate a good joke :) Also, if you're a bit of a dork at heart.
