My self-summary
Hi! I moved to Austin from Illinois a few years ago after finishing school in the Chicago area. Like most people, I don't like the idea of being summarized in a paragraph or two, but I'll provide a few relevant adjectives/phrases:

...calm, friendly, positive, fairly introverted, facetious/deadpan in humor (big fan of "The Onion"), open-minded, and somewhat anti-capitalistic. I'm pretty into physical fitness as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in project management at a clinical research company. In my free time, I like to hang out with friends, swim, watch movies, lift weights, read life-changing books/articles (well hey..ideally), and go out downtown when I have good company.
I’m really good at
swimming (I swam Division I in college, and swimming was pretty much my life ages 13-23), thinking about things with a psychological perspective, crunching numbers, and playing old-school N64 games!
The first things people usually notice about me
fairly tall, broad shoulders, probably look a couple years younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - pretty much anything to do with social psychology.

Movies - Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Inception, The Prestige, Donnie Darko, Big Trouble in Little China, Bloodsport, Happy Gilmore, Dumb and Dumber, The Goonies, Taken.

TV shows - Breaking Bad, Louie, Game of Thrones, Tosh.O, Nip/Tuck, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Dog Whisperer.

Music - I like most stuff that was popular in the late 90s/early 00s, but some of my favorite artists now are Kaskade, Drake, Staind, Incubus, and Calvin Harris, among others.

Food - I eat mostly on the healthy side, but my all-time favorite foods happen to be cookie dough and Pizza Hut pizza :)
The six things I could never do without
1) home movies
2) exercise
3) my music
4) relaxation time
5) internet
6) good people
On a typical Friday night I am
doing what most people do...hanging out with friends, going out to bars/downtown, or just relaxing at home while watching a movie/reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't own a "smart phone" and am not big on social media.
You should message me if
-you consider yourself a positive, warmhearted person.

-you're not too scattered in your behavior.

-you're able to separate your mindset from the junk that comes with the okcupid experience and actually want to meet someone cool in-person.

So many people seem to me to be very "boyfriend (/girlfriend)-hungry" and overly eager to pair up with the wrong people. Although I would like a relationship, I've found that I get to that point slower than most people.

Also, I'll be honest and say that I'm not opposed to something more "casual" at the present time if it happens that way, but that's certainly not my goal of being on here.
