Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a one-time academic who has begun a career of sorts in middle
management and hospitality. It’s not what I would have imagined,
but it pays the bills and I enjoy it enough to stay with it for the
time being. I have been a teacher and consider returning to that
career, although teaching yoga and penning children’s books are
also options that I’ve considered. I'm clever and caring, and I
like putting time and energy into people who are intellectually
stimulating and compassionate.
I am an intensely constructive person. Being a positive influence
in the world is incredibly important to me. I get along best with
people who also have a desire to do good in the world, even if they
don't presently have a plan or the resources to do so.
Practically, I am organized, honest, and forthcoming.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Structuring more hobbies and recreation into my life.
Meeting new people, making new friends, dating, exploring,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching people how to beat me at my favorite games. Emotional
intelligence is a strong point, though I'm just as vulnerable and
sensitive as the next guy. And I'm not a bad cook, when the mood
strikes. I have a mischievous side and I am happiest when my sense
of humor is appreciated.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am tall. I tend to command attention, but I am really more of
kitten…a large liger-like kitten, but a kitten nonetheless.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mirah is a favorite musical artist. Also, Dr. Octagon. Jeffrey
Lewis has often saved my day. Zombie movies and zombie books are
almost always enjoyed. I love food, almost all kinds. Was a vegan
for a number of years. Now I eat everything, but I am very flexible
about dietary preferences.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whether or not I want to be able to look back upon my life and
joyfully consider myself a loner with a string of great loves -
past and present - or to seriously domesticate myself with one or
two or three or four people. The arrangements of those multiples
might be kids, a queer family, or an avuncular relationship with
some others' nuclear families.... Not sure. I do know that Uncle
Boak_Tree is as awesome as Boyf Boak_Tree is as awesome as
Mysterious & Vulnerable Lover Boak_Tree. At least, I know that
I am (un)comfortable thinking about myself in any of those roles;
and that what makes me (un)comfortable is what I spend a lot of
time thinking about....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not filling out essays about myself on online dating sites.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not (really) that interested in being the dark handsome guy
who seduces you. I am very interested in being seduced. C'mon,
ladies: run some game. I am available. Try the dominant role on for
size; I will communicate where and when my interest/invitation
stops, no worries.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You’re a reclusive genius, a passionate eccentric, a die-hard
non-conformist, a casual seeker, a complicated sweetheart. Someone
who wants a relationship with someone who is willing to explore
with you, or relax and enjoy an uncomplicated evening, or period,
or season -- or even a lengthy duration -- of joy, compassion and
the pursuit of knowledge and wellness.
