Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So... I used up all my good material on my match profile. Of
course, that very first sentence is a bit of a rule-breaking
disaster, but I'll digress and let you decide how brutal the
repercussions should be.
Yup, I've met a lot of nice people on match, and even enjoyed some
sustained relationships that started there. I've also been on a lot
of first dates that I thought could lead to more, but didn't, and
met a few girls with whom I decided not to keep hangin out. I read
some positive things about okcupid on an unnamed internets
location, so I thought I'd at least lay down by the pool and stick
my head in the water.
Anyways, I'll at least get some generalities down, then maybe I'll
come back and betterize this later (yup, betterize). Intelligence
is pretty important to me. I'm not all that smart, but I really
appreciate spending time with someone that challenges what meager
brains I have handy. I think that skiing and mountain biking are
excellent outdoor activities, and that people that aren't at least
willing to try them are wasting their lives. In an ideal world, I'd
be able to enjoy chairlift rides with someone pretty, either
deciding which run to do next, or discussing some recently read,
listened to, or imagined idea. Same thing goes for those slow,
anaerobically excruciating mountain bike uphills, provided that I'm
not completely out-of-breath.
Here's a fun game:
Truth: I'm not native, and hate those bumper stickers.
Lie: I make beautiful music on the guitar.
Truth: I'm an idiotic romantic.
Lie: I'll wait at least 36 hours to get in touch after our first
Truth: My shit is more-or-less together
Lie: All of my belongings have a designated space.
Truth: I love starbursts.
Lie: Jon Stewart is funnier than Stephen Colbert.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So, I generally read current authors. Classics don't usually float
to the top of my stack, but I'm planning on East of Eden next.
Authors whom I frequently check on to see when they are publishing
new novels: Neal Stephenson and Neal Gaiman. They both have
intelligent style and witty humor, and I enjoy their books more
each time I read them.
I don't get out and see movies too often. Generally, when I'm back
on the East Coast visiting friends/fam, I'll catch one or two,
since THERE ARE NO MOUNTAINS THERE. Keeping the profile current
