My self-summary
I think I'm pretty fun.

I laugh loudly, and often. I've been called a chop-buster, but if I tease you, it's probably because I like you. At least as a friend.

I am: intense (but not scary, I don't think), interested, skeptical, sensation-seeking, a good friend and Midwestern to the core of my being.

I like: whiskey, road trips, quirky architecture, animals, horror movies, boxing, stand-up comedy, red meat, Chuck Taylors, thrift stores and good chocolate.
What I’m doing with my life
Always striving to be better.

Working in the corporate world as a mid-level executive with no apologies about it- I really like my job. I try to fight the machine from the inside by bringing my own brand of quirk to the khaki wasteland.

Being a decent friend, I hope.

Trying new things (food, hobbies, etc).

Giving back where/when I can.
I’m really good at
Making playlists for special occasions/people that interest me.

Showing people I care about them. Life's too short not to.

Falling asleep under any circumstances. I'm not narcoleptic, just busy.

Getting people to trust me. (It's not hard: just prove you want to listen, and you'll be surprised by what people share).
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked, but I'd venture to guess: my hair (it's red), my height (I'm short), or my voice (it's deep).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So many of all of these things. I consume. A smattering:

Books: lots of non-fiction about random things, biographies, weird history. Not a huge fiction reader but I tend to like gritty and/or gross books about people and relationships.

Movies: Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, The Royal Tenenbaums, Major League, Kill Bill 1&2, The Departed. Horror movies of all kinds, bro comedies, etc.

Music: Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Liz Phair, Poe, Flogging Molly, Cake, Jurassic 5, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash

Food: Yes. Red meat. Cheese. Learning to like vegetables, somewhat begrudgingly. Sushi, in moderation. Mexican like it's my job.
The six things I could never do without
humor, my phone, the internet, my glasses/contacts, friends, coffee.

Those aren't particularly interesting or idiosyncratic answers, but they're accurate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want for dinner. Where I'd like to travel. Something funny I've recently read or listened to online.
On a typical Friday night I am
drinking by myself on the floor in my closet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have one tattoo: a remnant from my time as a bible-thumping, Sunday school-teaching Good Girl.
You should message me if
You even made it this far down the page and think we might get along.

You like your life, and if not, have a plan on how to get it to a likeable state.

You understand that having read my profile, writing something specifically to me is important. Generic emails don't really interest me, no matter how cute you find yourself. Women get bombarded with (boring, gross and/or lazily copied and pasted) messages here.

You understand that I'm not *obligated* to respond to messages. Nor is any woman. Men who get pissy when you don't respond to them (when you receive multiple messages A MINUTE): not cute.

You're not a unicorn hunter (someone who trolls dating sites looking for single bi chicks to have threesomes with)
