My self-summary
I’m looking for a great kiss. Anyone can be a good kisser, but a great kiss takes two people. Subtler forms of affection like kisses, hand holding and hugs can be just as gratifying and intimate as sex that has you gripping the headboard for dear life (though there is something to be said for gripping the headboard too).

I'm a good natured smartass, quiet at first but chatty over time. I'm a firm believer that there is no “one” person out there for me but I’ve had enough relationships to know that a deeply meaningful connection with another person is difficult to find. And should be respected and cherished.

I'm equally interested in friendships as well as potential partners. You can never have too many good people in your life.

BONUS POINTS awarded to you immediately if you possess any of the following traits:

Your idea of an Afterparty is being curled up on the couch making snarky comments about the hipsters we saw on the train that day.

You hated Twilight and/or 50 Shades of grey.

You appreciate parentheses (both aesthetically and functionally).

You understand that “Fox News” is an oxymoron.

You believe there should be public executions for people who regularly use douchy business-speak in casual conversations.

You are GGG

EXTRA BONUS POINTS awarded on a sliding scale based on how close you live to me. I'm not a hermit or a snob. It's just that, in my neighborhood, owning a car is more of an inconvenience than a luxury and traveling to Hoboken or New Paltz will put a crimp in our relationship.

You have accurate/recent pics in your profile photos. I'm a BIG guy. I don't want you to be surprised by this when I show up to meet you so I have recent profile pics that show my face AND body. I’m more likely to respond to women who extend me the same courtesy.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m a writer by choice, a social worker by profession, and a hot mess by genetic predisposition.
I’m really good at
Listening (occupational hazard). Hugs (and I'm selective about who gets them). Writing, Photography, critical thinking
The first things people usually notice about me
Speaking for others on this topic seems presumptuous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Netflix and Youtube are my primary sources of entertainment these days.

I'm documentary junkie. Some of my recent favorites are Exit Through the Gift Shop, Inside Deepthroat, The Future of Food, Supersize Me and Religulous.

TV: Sherlock, The Big Bang Theory though I really haven't been keeping up with it.

YouTube: Geek & Sundry, The Brain Scoop, vLogbrothers, Tested.com and lacigreen just to name a few.

Books: God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens, Old Man's War by John Scalzi and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, My Horizontal Life, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the subsequent millennium novels. The Hunger Games trilogy. Harry Potter The Charlaine Harris books on which True Blood is based. David Sedaris.

Music: I'm all over the map. Melissa Etheridge, Avril Lavigne, Chickenfoot, Katy Perry along with the occasional catchy pop hits and some classic rock favorites.
Six things I could never do without
Genuine, honest, unpolluted affection.
Internet access
Nature (in controlled doses)
Pasta, preferably in a good marinara sauce.
Stories. Be they books or films, I love being drawn in my a well spun tale.
A healthy sexual relationship: Why doesn't anyone ever list this? Are OkCupid users celibate?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects that will stimulate the creative chunks of my gray matter. Without a creative outlet I get a little bit squirrely.

People who use there, their and they're interchangeably. Were they raised by wolves or something?

The incredibly poor design of the OKCupid Android phone App.

The geopolitical impact of declining sales of Captain Crunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Mythbusters reruns, curled up with a good book or occasionally having drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m a soft core nerd. I’ve never been to comicon in costume or anything, but I would gladly choose a night playing board games with friends over trying to shout over the background noise at happy hour.
You should message me if
If you’ve resisted the distraction of my dashing good looks long enough to read this far down, yeah we probably should talk.
The two of us
