I'm a Chicagoan born and raised. I love this city. I live in Lakeview now. I grew up and currently work in Lincoln Park. My office is a few blocks from my parents' place, and I shamelessly use my lunch break to raid their fridge on the regular. My family is very important to me.
I enjoy going to concerts, checking out comedy shows, going to the movies, watching Netflix with my cats, and dancing. Taking classes at Second City.
Basically, I'm a total stereotype - just one of those recovering addict, bisexual, ex-frat, cat-loving freight broker comics you're always reading about in the news and seeing on TV.
My purpose for being on here is to date and have fun whether that leads to a relationship that lasts a few hours, days, weeks, or years. I'm not here to just chat. I want to meet people in real life, have fun, make some mistakes, and have some experiences. I'm not totally opposed to a fling, and I can't claim to have never had a one night stand. Ultimately though, I'm looking to settle down, get married, and have kids.
I don't have my life fully together, but I feel like I'm getting pretty close.
I'm actively working on building a career. I've been at my company for over a year and really enjoy the work I do. I am in sales at a logistics company.
I spend a lot of time hanging out with my friends: playing volleyball at the beach, dancing at clubs, and getting pancakes at midnight.
I'm doing a lot of stand-up comedy. I'm hoping to get really good at it so I can quit my day job. But actually though. That'd be awesome! Also really stoked that my improv class is back at Piper's Alley finally!
I'm highly active in a recovery community, and that takes up a lot of my time. It's totally worth it. Also, totally necessary.
I'm also really good at my job. Public speaking. Being shameless.

I went to math camp... twice.
I've mentioned recovery a few times. Been clean over a year - I don't drink or do drugs at all. I don't mind being around alcohol or going to bars. I am at bars a lot for comedy. And to dance! Would rather steer clear of drugs and going to trap houses. My vices are cigarettes (though I'm trying to quit those with some amount of success) and caffeine.
You're smart. I'm smart too.
You're in recovery. It would be wonderful to find someone who also has some clean time and understands my experience. Totally not necessary. However, current users of hard drugs need not apply.
You want to go on a date or have some fun. If you have an idea of something fun you'd like to do with me, let me know. I'm probably down.
You are direct. I am.
You have a five year plan.
You wanna go halfsies on a baby. But for real though. I want to be a dad (in 5 years).
Also, if you love cats.
Or, if you just want to! Let me know what you're looking for.
