Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think about 90% of all users here would agree that writing
self-summaries is hard. Especially when they are the first thing
you are going to get to know about a person here, apart from their
As self-perception and outside perception often vary wildly, I will
only give quotes by good friends of mine:
You are one of the least superficial people I have ever met.
Sometimes you can be a real know-it-all. Problem is, most of the
time you are right.
No! Don't look at me like that! I can see that you know what I am
It is so easy to laugh with you.
You are so easy to be around, it makes me uncomfortable.
I just love spending time with you, you understand me so
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I think it is interesting that most people answer this question
with their occupation... I hate the idea that my job defines my
life. Personal growth, openness, acceptance and happiness are far
more important than where I get my money from. But for whomever is
Jobwise I have no idea where my life is headed. I finish my PhD
now, but who knows what comes next? Central bank? Professional
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, singing, grammar, games, thinking, understanding
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, my eyes, my hair, my positive attitude
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I very seldomly read nowadays, as I read a lot of work-related
papers. But I read a lot up until a few years ago, mostly classics,
fantasy and science books.
So many movies, so little time... I could start listing all the
amazing mindfuck-movies out there, but I won't :-)
I watch more TV shows than movies, and if you like a series, I have
probably seen it. Except mad men. And downton abbey.
Concerning music I basically like some songs in every genre... I
have playlists for pop, rock, metal, etc... but I think my true
musical passion is EDM, especially deep house and chill out stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My SO, my PC, my friends, internet, Coke-Zero, toothbrush
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Society, relationships, and people in general. As I am a person as
well, I therefore also think about myself :-) In particular what
really makes me who I am, and what society and nurture have made me
think that I am and should be.
Also: Why this particular variable isn't significant although it
would be really intuitive if it were.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing boardgames with friends, playing games over the internet,
having some drinks with friends, watching series.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want good company and do not shy away from private questions or
a guy who wants to understand who you are.
Or as someone else put it:
I hate small talk. I want to talk about atoms, death, aliens, sex,
magic, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, music that
makes you feel different, memories, the lies you have told, you
flaws, your favorite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at
night, your insecurities and fears. I like people with depth, who
speak with emotion from a twisted mind. I don't want to know
