The longer version:
I was born in the Detroit suburbs, moved to DC for college, and haven't really looked back. While I've been out of Michigan for a decade, I still say pop, love the Detroit Red Wings, played ice hockey in college, and prefer 2*F winter days to 90*F summer days.
I studied Criminal Justice & Public Policy in college and grad school, and while I don't work in the field, I'm still passionate about it, particularly the Death Penalty and sentencing guidelines/reform. I'm also particularly interested in education policy. However, I tend to not be too into politics outside of my pet interests.
I work with children (K-5), so sometimes my sense of humor can be a bit...immature, you know, to appeal to the younger set. Sometimes I need somebody to elbow me and let me know I'm not in elementary school anymore.
I almost bought a wedding package at an auction because it was such a good deal despite not even dating anybody. I figured that would be a good way to ensure I would never need it.
You're not looking for casual sex. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. It's not for me.
You're not so self-important that you can't have a picture up here. Nobody's job prevents that.
Oh, and if the first words out of your mouth when you meet somebody new are not "what do you do?" or "where do you work?".
Also, if you're not geographically undesirable :)
