My self-summary
Bookish gent seeks readerly lady for romantic adventures in the ville of Thomas Jefferson (that punk!). Ask me Q's and I'll try to come up with interesting A's?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm PhD bound at UVA. My strong friend-group keeps me pleasantly busy, and the rest of my time is spent savoring the simple enjoyments of being a being.
I’m really good at
I'm NOT gonna trot out my selling-points like every other upstanding denizen of the online dating realm. Instead I'll share some of my weaknesses. I'm bad at "living in the moment", and "seizing the day", and even "taking advantage of this city and all it has to offer." Those plainly aren't my strong suits. Here is my strong suit.
The first things people usually notice about me
The intensity of my enthusiasms.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
[Cracks open the old superlatives archive]

Books: Didion, Dickens, Austen, Wittgenstein, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Saul and Patsy, Little, Big, The Ask, Wolf Hall, The Age of Wonder, SPQR...

Movies: The Babadook, Dark City, Don't Look Now, In the Loop, Burma VJ. I mean I guess I need to spend more time in mainstream land? The latest Mission Impossible though. Super great.

Shows: 30 Rock (duh), Parks and Rec (the early seasons), The Shield, The Good Wife

Music: The Magnetic Fields

Food: I'm an adventurous eater! It's hard to find a cuisine that I don't like. All vegetables (especially beets, eggplant and zucchini). Most fruits (especially strawberries and mangos). Team taco over team pizza.
Six things I could never do without
1)a quiet place to live and
2)read my books;
3)knowledge of spring and
4)the possibility of walks;
5)my lucky chair,
6)my fancy, pin-striped pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The filibuster. The metaphysical implausibility of the everyday. My own beliefs and what causes them. Other people's beliefs and what causes them. Paradox. Paradox. Paradox.
On a typical Friday night I am
Haunted by the memory of a typical Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was voted "most shy" in high school. Now I'm a social butterfly! Who woulda thunk?
You should message me if
I'm a kind, sensitive, upbeat guy. I'm settled and stable but not boring. I love getting to know people, and I genuinely like in-person meet-ups, so message away.
