Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really hate the self-summary portion of any application, and this
certainly feels like an application...for dating. I've spent 28
years trying to figure out who I am and yet I still find it
difficult to summarize everything.
About me. I was or perhaps still am an English Major. I have a soft
spot for dogs. There is nothing better than a big, slobbery mutt,
one you can grab by the ears and wrestle with.
I also enjoy being as absolutely goofy as possible, which is in
sharp contrast from how people perceive me, which apparently is
very serious. I'm not...well, sometimes I am. I have been known to
stand on my soap box occasionally, but sometimes a person needs to
be tickled as well. I don't really know what else to write, other
than I think I'm a very multi-faceted person who requires much more
than a page in order for someone to get to know me. But isn't that
the beauty of relationships with individuals? Discovering just how
deep and interesting they are or are not? I don't know...fuck it
dude, let's go bowling.
I also spend a decent amount of time beating the shit out of myself
by running or biking as much as possible. So if either of those
things interests you, I'm always looking a running/riding buddy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from Drexel last spring. I currently bartend until I
either find a real job or join the peace corps. I was in the Navy
for 5 years prior to College, so I've been all over, but I'm
currently pretty happy here in Philly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Browsing Reddit. Also, being an all around decent person I think. I
work really hard, I try to be a kind person at all times, I love my
friends and family even though I don't always show it. I know that
is ambiguous as fuck, but you can't expect to learn everything
about a person from a few brief paragraphs.
I'm also really good at being a passionate individual. I think this
needs to be stressed here. I have some strange opinions mixed in
with my fairly pedestrian opinions, but I'm immensely passionate
about all of them and I defend myself and my choices quite
adamantly. I'm not a nut but if you dislike someone routinely
standing up for their beliefs, you and I might not get along.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my eyes or my facial hair, whatever length it happens to
be at the time. I hope people notice my usually positive, up-beat
demeanor after that, but I don't think they do.
I think I can come off as very serious. Perhaps it's because I
don't smile much. That just means you have to work hard for the
prize, because when someone makes me smile and laugh, they have
truly earned it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I go through pretty large cycles with my leisure interests. I'm
currently reading a lot of non-fiction. A lot of Noam Chomsky,
books on Buddhism, some philosophy and the occasional fictional
story. I'm pretty giving with my books, and will gladly trade
anything I own that I have read for something that I haven't. I
believe books are meant to be shared, and never hold onto a book
strictly for possession.
I could go on about music forever. It's best to just ask me.
I don't really watch much television or many movies, but when I do,
I enjoy something not quite as disturbing as Keeping up with the
Kardashians. So Anthony Bourdain, Breaking Bad, Workaholics, Tosh
and Archer. And I'm currently trying to finish BSG, so please don't
ruin it for me.
And I'm a human garbage disposal. I'm constantly eating, and the
absolute quickest way to my heart is through my stomach. Not
cooking for me, I actually enjoy doing the cooking, but sitting
down and enjoying a good meal with me. Eating nice and slow,
talking...you know, the shit that most people don't do anymore.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to read or to keep my brain working
A pair of running shoes
Also tomatoes and swear words...or as I like to call them...spice
words. And that's 8...fuck it.
And I would have put my dog on here, but seeing as how she recently
passed away and I'm still living, I guess she doesn't make the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future. If I'll ever figure it the fuck out, and if anyone ever
really does figure it out, or if they just fake it better than me.
That's an all consuming process. And other really bizarre
I also fantasize way too much about opening a micro-brew. I will
make this dream a reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Bartending or out with my friends getting weird, one of the two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am very scared about my future, and that I probably should
spend more time figuring it out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love keyboard cat. Or if you love sleeping with the windows
open in the summertime, no sheets, enjoying the night air. Or if
you love walking around in the grass barefoot. Or if you think a
passionate kiss is better without tongue.
Or if you miss the 90's for the sole reason that rap hasn't been
the same since. That's right, I listen to rap music. Rappers are
the under appreciated poets of our generation. Future generations
will be amazed to learn that we failed to recognize them as such
while they were still active.
Or I message you, which I might do. Even a "No thanks" is always
appreciated. Don't worry, I will do the same should you message me
and you are way too pretty, smart, tall, or funny for me.
