Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Seeing as everyone says the same wonderful things about themselves,
perhaps you'd rather hear about what's wrong with me: I am
distractible, stubborn, and restless, I tend to swear too much,
especially after a few drinks, and my content-filter has largely
been disabled by my job. I put the "J" in "ENTJ". I hate the
feeling of failure, which feeds my pathological desire to be an
expert at everything, and my even more pathological belief that if
I need something done right, I'll do it myself. My taste in movies
could not be less feminine. I often procrastinate even the act of
going to bed.
I am sorry I don't have a picture of me posing in front of ancient
ruins or on top of a mountain, and hope this does not disappoint
you. I've been traveling a lot the past couple of years, mainly in
hopes of improving my online dating photos (obviously), but still
no ruins or mountains. You'll also notice that I attended a taping
of Top Chef, and stood behind Gail.
I have positive traits, as well, but those are more fun to discover
in real life. For purposes of this dating medium I can attest that
I look like my pictures, I can hold a conversation and I have no
nefarious agenda -- I'm a decent person and I'm legitimately
looking to make a real, deep connection with someone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working hard then taking very long vacations. I'm a bleeding heart
and my job reflects that. It's a very hard job sometimes. I feel
called to do it, though, and I usually love it, so I might be
stuck. That said I expend nearly as much energy remodeling my house
as I do at any other human endeavor.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not losing or damaging my cell phone. UNTIL TONIGHT THAT IS, when I
lost my brand new iPhone 6 in a snow bank. Did I mention I didn't
have insurance? I didn't. Yeah, I know, I'm an idiot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Sure, I like all of these things.
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.
Cement-based construction products. Electrical wiring. Due process.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Writing and rewriting my online dating profile.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...I write you, you read my profile, you like it, think we might
get along and think I might be somewhat handsome in person.
Every time I see a "checklist" of attributes on this site I roll my
eyes a little. I don't care much about what music you like, your
food preferences or whether you've been to Europe or not. What I
care about is whether you're kind and whether you treat people with
respect. I also care about whether you're self-aware and are able
to be vulnerable with those close to you. Those are qualities that
I find very attractive. Of course it usually works better if you're
smart and appreciate a dry wit (and love dogs), but the basics are
far more important to me.
Talk to you soon.
