Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's just slow down here a bit, shall we? First,
I'm in your quiver, then you're looking at my profile. This is all
a bit sudden, don't you think?
First off, you should know that I am married, and in an open
relationship. If this is a huge turn off for you, then I've just
saved you a bunch of time. You are most welcome.
If not, then I suppose I'll make an attempt at a Self Summary.
Unfortunately, every time I start to write one, I feel like an
enormous, self-absorbed ass. I suppose feeling that way is normal,
unless you really ARE a self-absorbed ass. I mean, if you were, how
would you know?
I spend a lot of time thinking about second guessing myself.
Ooh. That's good. I should have saved that one for further down.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking things literally. For instance, I really should just write
in "hanging out with my friends and having fun! LOL"
Instead, this section is a cause for great self reflection. What AM
I doing with my life? Then I pour some wine and stare into space
for a long time. This question makes me uncomfortable.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Avoiding straight answers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really quiet. I find people fascinating and I listen.
Unfortunately, there is a fine line between "interested quiet guy"
and "creepy lurker." Most of what I have going on is inside my
head, and I assure you only some of it is thinking about undressing
Otherwise, I'm really good at going unnoticed. Ooh. I should have
said that above.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This one's easy.
Books - science fiction, but kind of old science fiction. I like
reading what people in the past thought about the future. Jules
Verne wrote a story about launching a spaceship to the moon a 100
years before Apollo, from Florida, with 3 people, and it splashed
down in the Pacific Ocean. He got some things wrong too. His
astronauts opened a window while in orbit and everything was just
Movies - I like the standard guy action movies. The movies that
have left the biggest impression on me are these: Highlander - this
was, by all critical acclaim, an awful movie. But, you've got Sean
Connery, immortals whacking each other's heads off in a grand
battle for a mysterious prize, and a soundtrack by Queen in their
prime. If you can't find something to love about this movie, you
have no soul.
The Silence of the Lambs - this is the first movie I saw where the
bad guy didn't seem like a written Hollywood necessity, but like a
real person who could be living in my neighborhood, keeping girl
suits in his basement. When I walked out of the theater, I saw a
different world. It disturbed me. Movies should do that.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail - the knights have a serious and
noble objective - find the grail. But they keep getting side
tracked by unexpected problems and stupid people. This is exactly
like real life. You will constantly be frustrated by things you
didn't expect, but if you pay attention, that shit is
Fight Club - this was the story of a young professional questioning
his possessions and his life's decisions, and it came out at a time
when I was a young professional questioning my possessions and my
life's decisions. I can relate to a lot of it. I didn't have a
psychotic episode and start an underground fighting cult (to my
knowledge), but I did start to question more things in my
The Star Wars trilogy - I'm going to pretend that the prequel
trilogy never existed.
Shows - Netflix has been one of the other best things to come along
lately. I've been watching Breaking Bad, Wilfred, and Arrested
Food - I'm not a picky eater, and I enjoy many varieties. My wife
is more of a foodie. She can tell you where to find a GOOD
tiramisu. I'm just happy to cram the yummy sugary treat into my pie
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Really? Fine. Let's say... matches. Six of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Mostly work, I guess. My brain likes a good problem.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, on average. I spend a lot of time playing Scrabble with my
sister on the Facebooks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

OK, but this is just between you and me and the 47,000 other
strangers who will read my profile: I tend to overestimate the
number of people who read my profile.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can message me for any reason that tickles you. If you write to
me, there's a good chance I'll write you back. For my own part, I
tend to avoid writing to any women listed as straight/single, or
anyone I sense is looking for a long term partner in the
traditional dating scenario. If I think you're cool, I'd like to
get to know you better, and it's as simple as that.
