Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some things that are important in my life.
Intimacy/connecting with the person I love, adventure that is
cultural or social, spending time with my family/nieces/nephews,
accomplishing my goals, preparing/eating/drinking good food/wine
with people I care about, and convening with nature.
My Myers-Brigg personality type is INTJ. Here is a relevant
paragraph from the INTJ Wikipedia article:
In forming relationships, INTJs tend to seek out others with
similar character traits and ideologies. Agreement on theoretical
concepts is an important aspect of their relationships. By nature
INTJs can be demanding in their expectations, and approach
relationships in a rational manner. As a result, INTJs may not
always respond to a spontaneous infatuation but wait for a mate who
better fits their set criteria. They tend to be stable, reliable,
and dedicated. Harmony in relationships and home life tends to be
extremely important to them. They generally withhold strong emotion
and do not like to waste time with what they consider irrational
social rituals. This may cause non-INTJs to perceive them as
distant and reserved; nevertheless, INTJs are usually very loyal
partners who are prepared to commit substantial energy and time
into a relationship to make it work.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software developer by trade, and for the last 5 years I've
been doing intermittent contract work while also building a house.
I decided I wanted to build a large addition on my house, so I
borrowed some money and did the general contracting and a lot of
the work myself. Now, I live in the addition and rent out the
original house. I still have a lot of work to get the house
"completed". It is a work in progress, but I like imagining what it
will be like when I finish.
The long-term goal is to make my home an almost off-grid house that
I can rent as a vacation property while I spend the winters in away
from Seattle (Thailand and New Zealand are currently in the running
for top destination)
I’m really good at

Crazy Stupid Love, Friends with Benefits, Love and Other Drugs, A
Lot Like Love, and No Strings Attached. My favorites movies include
The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Player, Brazil, LA Story,
and Blade Runner.
I like smart/witty television and I have an aversion to watching
commercials. Past favorites have included The West Wing, Gilmore
Girls (Maybe this should be the most private thing I'm willing to
admit), and I always like to watch The Colbert Report - he's the
I like a variety of music - it depends on my mood and the
situation. Not too much pop, country, or jazz. I am a big fan of
I pay attention to the ingredients in food and enjoy the experience
of a great meal with friends. My two favorite meals have both been

The six things I could never do without
