Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Oakland and am still trying to find my way
I'm still not 100% sure what I want out of life, but I'm 90% sure
of what I don't--I think that last 10% is what keeps it
I'm sort of a low-brow renaissance man: I've a Masters in English,
and I spend most of my free time working on old motorcycles; I know
which fork to use but am just as happy using a pocketknife
I don't trust somebody that never cusses.
I think it's weird when men don't hold the door for a lady (sort of
vestigial trait from a Southern upbringing).
The cure for boredom is to get moving: "No time for
brain-damaged-depressed-sweet-dudes to be lying around!" (bonus
points if you know that quote)
I think that the key to self-actualization is figuring out exactly
where you're fucked up.
I think that making a bullet list to describe yourself pretty much
falls short, no matter how well-crafted.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to find my "inside voice"
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Swearing around children.
Using commas with coordinating conjunctions.
Taking mechanical things apart and putting them back together
without leftover pieces.
Not taking the little things too seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Cormac McCarthy, Nabokov, Walt Whitman, Gennady Aygi, Albert Camus,
Hunter S. Thompson, Hemingway... but I'll read the first 100 pages
of just about anything that somebody loans me (even if the first 99
pages are bad).
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; The Third Man, Boondock Saints;
Cool Hand Luke; Anchorman; Memento, Man Bites Dog and a ton of
I go through phases on music, but currently I'm obsessed with Red
Fang, Sleep, Brown Bird, The Builders and the Butchers, Fake
Problems, The Police, High on Fire, Off!, and a some hip-hop stuff
that real aficionados would scoff at.
I love Southern "comfort food," but I'm an amateur foodie so I just
love to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Intelligent conversation (even if it's about stupid shit)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for something atypical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I sing Tom Jones songs when I think nobody is around.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

... you think calling in sick on a Friday to ride a 50yr old
motorcycle to the desert and camp for no good reason is a better
option than the mandatory potluck they're having at work that

copy a few dozen times).

fashion accessory for men who are standing more than 15' from a
