THE STANDARD ISSUE NORTH BROOKLYN MALE WITH SELLING POINTS

Me: thirty-one, available, humanities doctoral reject-turned-technologist. Standard issue North Brooklyn male (cf. beard, tattoos, single-speed, feelings, Tumblr). Likes: wine, Baudelaire, girls with top knots, Marx, early nineties Matador bands. Dislikes: Clive James, the Austrian School, Kreayshawn, Cartesian subjectivity, Thought Catalog. Selling points: great in the kitchen, can fix your computer, understands all the math in Badiou.
You: a woman, available, thinks Rancière is underrated, blushes after accidentally using words like “qua” in polite conversation, doesn’t “get” Jonathan Franzen or brunch culture or Bradley Cooper’s sex appeal, good at remembering to bring an umbrella, capable of loving a man who spends Sunday afternoons watching football with his eight-pound Chihuahua.
