Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't want to make myself sound cooler than I am so I'll just be
honest. I race cars, raise baby seals, pick my own apples, perform
dental surgery, fly stunt planes, make toast by warming bread with
my hands, and build computers out of wood. Once I wrestled a polar
bear into submission on a trip to Alaska I took to make the world's
largest snow cone. I bring it up just to show I can also do normal
Ugh, fine that was all a lie. I'm just a normal super awesome guy.
I like sports (especially basketball) and love to travel (I once
took a train from Hong Kong to Madrid). I try to stay active and
eat healthy. Sometimes I like to sit around and say really douchey
things to my roommate like, "Listen bro, if you want to bulk up you
gotta eat clean and train dirty." Then we take pictures of each
other with our shirts off in front of the mirror. I'm a minor film
buff; when I was in college I use to look on "Best Movie" lists and
rent them without knowing what they were about.
I'm kinda nerdy so I like to code, read random journal articles,
take Coursera math classes, and listen to audiobooks in my spare
time. I do 5k and 8k races around Seattle for fun (just did the
Zombie run!). I also try to volunteer regularly, usually with my
SeattleWorks team or ArtsFund and I did AmeriCorps for a
Lastly, I'm 6'6" and about 200 lbs of solid man meat (wtf?) so if
you don't like tall, thin guys you're not going to like me. (And if
you don't like me think again next time you're getting your
stepstool out to change a lightbulb. Hey girl, I could have easily
changed that for you.)
Looking for something abiding.
