My self-summary
I've been meaning to learn to surf for several years...probably a decade or more now. Every summer I romanticize the thought then never act on it. Perhaps we can work out some kind of exchange where you teach me to surf and I teach you to camp and build fires or cook or workout or one of the other million things I do. Any of the aforementioned or unmentioned doesn't have to be a date. I'd really like some solid peeps with which to hang.

I'm just going to get this out of the way. If you literally say "literally", literally every other word, I literally want to literally tear your face off. There is literally absolutely nothing figurative about that.

Similarly, you self-descriptive cliches do nothing for me. Simple/complex, passionate/driven. Everyone says the same thing. If you're full of crap, at least differentiate your brand.

I lived in Northern Liberties last year. I love it there. It is the first place I've ever felt "home". I'm now trying to find that in Brewerytown.

As an extremely active individual, I find it rather difficult to spend time with things which keep me from moving. I am not shy about sweating, doing burpees, or cycling through equipment at the gym. I ride mountain bike, and have been riding, jumping, and tearing around on bikes constantly since the age of 12. I like participating in sports in general. Snowboarding is a major passion of mine. Mountains and oceans alike have a magical draw on my being.

I am also not shy about making an ass of myself for my friends. Karaoke, dance offs, corny jokes...whatever whenever wherever.

Je parle un petie peux, mais, je ne comprend pas avec le tete de l`homme de 34 ans. Je voudrais parle en francais avec les belles filles. Please don't send me messages en francais. JE ME FRANCAIS SONT TERRIBLE.

Philly, I'm inside you. Let's adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an entrepreneur. I have a lot going on. Suffice to say I make a solid living, work odd hours, and have -many- irons in the fire. Save asking about this for face to face. Y'alls love to talk on this subject twice.
I’m really good at
I can carry a conversation and I'm amazing at keeping it way too surfacy. I'm terrible at getting a conversation going. I'm also terrible at getting to know people because I don't ask the right questions. If you're good at this maybe we will jibe.

The internet. I have a nack for finding the best of the worst of. Here is an example that may hit close to home:

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I didn't read your lists. I don't expect you to read mine.
The six things I could never do without
Irrelevant. Everything except family is expendable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...How is it possible that Trader Joe's crammed so much goodness into a bag of mint tea and a tablespoon of mesquite honey?

Are Chiquita bananas actually genetically superior to Dole, or is it just the clever stickers that adorn them which make them taste so much better? They DO taste better.

Why is it I hate the word "nowadays"? ...Nails meet chalkboard. There are a lot of grammatical -things- that irritate me. If you can't proof-read your own text messages, I don't understand how you've been successful this far and you're not going to get far with me.

I am taking a busy fast. "Busy" is not as virtuous as one might think. Busy does not equal productive. "Busy" is an excuse and a symptom of poor time management.
On a typical Friday night I am
Can we call this a typical night out instead of specifically "Friday?" I'm pretty sure that's what it's asking for. I like to go on mini adventures. Sometimes it involves dancing salsa or playing Quizzo for a few hours. Or a show or simply sitting to admire the nighttime peacefulness of the Art Museum steps and the Water Works. Or I could be out in West Chester for karaoke or a few drinks and catching up with friends.

Then there are the adventure weekends which involve any of the following: beaching, biking, camping, canoeing, cooking, hiking, snowboarding...doing, living, being.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One: I looked at your pictures first. I'm a visual learner. I am very interested in your activity photos: snowboards, mountain bikes, rock climbing, whatever it is that you DO.

--Super swoon for overhead oly bars. <3 <3

Two: I am a better cook than you. Seriously.

Three: While I appreciate glasses, and the women bold enough to wear them, "transitions" lenses freak me out.

Four: I blab about myself, my life, my hobbies, my interests when I'm nervous. I promise it's not an ego thing. Take it as a compliment.
You should message me if
...You live in Philly. Yes I own a vehicle. I drive rarely.
...You're a smart cookie.
...You have an adventurous spirit.
...You live your life with effervescent positivity.
...You take care of yourself mentally and physically.
...You like what you've read...if you've read. This somehow evolved into a diatribe. I don't care if you disagree with everything I've written. If you read every word message me. Even if only to tell me I'm an arrogant self-centered prick.
...You have a strong internal drive to be able to keep pace with someone as active as me. When I'm working, I'm further cementing my passive income. When I'm not doing that, I'm in the gym (Pro-tip: work out with me...). When I'm not in the gym, I'm outside being active(Pro-tip 2: hiking, biking, snow sports, beach fun, urban and rural exploration are all part and parcel). When I'm not doing that, I'm tinkering with something containing a motor (recently my motorcycle-you should want to ride with me). And if you checked all those places and still haven't found me, I MAY be enjoying a nice hot cup of Joe or a frosty adult beverage.
