Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
***It's been brought to my attention by certain female friends that
I need better pics. Apparently my je ne sais quoi is not quite
coming through here. Working on it....***
Try this. Next time you're in a crowded room, or riding on BART,
take a look at all the people around you and pretend they're dogs.
Look at their faces and see them as Pugs and Afghans, Labs and
Chihuahuas, Malamutes and mutts. I think you'll be amazed at how
adorable they all instantly become.
OK, before we go any further, we have to address that one nagging
question: If all these guys you're checking out are really so cute
and smart and funny and sexy, so caring and self-aware, then WHY ON
EARTH ARE THEY STILL AVAILABLE? Shouldn't they all have been
claimed by deserving women years ago? As you stare into the dreamy
eyes of each photo, you start to wonder: Does he live with his
mother? Is he pathologically cheap? A terminal Peter Pan?
Halitosis? Scabies? Hung like an elf?
Sadly, these issues plague almost all the other men on
And as for me? I was married for four years to a delightful woman.
We were too different. We're still on good terms. I'm over
And who are you, my new love?
You've chosen your own unconventional path. You spend most of your
time doing things you're genuinely excited about.
You have a playful mind. You're a little kooky. People who see the
world exactly as it is, regardless of how bright or capable they
may be, tend to bore you.
You're sensual and affectionate.
You love language. You're articulate and communicative and you need
your partner to be.
There are cracks in your armor. As Leonard Cohen said, "That's how
the light gets in."
You love animals. And kids. You may want a life with both.
You laugh easily and find joy in tiny things, every day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a writer and musician. I was recently commissioned to write the
songs for an upcoming musical by a Tony Award-winning theater
company. I own a performance space and recording studio in
Berkeley. Check it out: www.themonkeyhouse.org
I go to the gym more than I really want to.
Love animals and nature and am determined to do a lot more outdoors
this year. Can't wait to take you camping in my badass tent. Love
sex and affectionate sensuality but will not be sending you body
part pics (unless you really insist.)
And I'm dying to start traveling again. How fast can you pack?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Would rather demonstrate in person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
More fun to talk about over coffee or dinner, no?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Bonus points if you know which one I skipped!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why 90% of women's profiles seem to use the word "passionate" in
the first paragraph. Is there some "how-to" guide to online dating
you've all been reading? I'm much more drawn to women who insist on
doing things their own way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hosting a show or performing one. Usually both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love to play "Spot the Flaming Narcissist" on here.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you have a good feeling after reading this. But needless to
say, there's only so much you can tell. Pixels are not people, nor
are essays. I once saw a woman in a cafe whose witty profile I'd
saved on OKC. She was every bit as attractive in person, and yet I
sensed almost instantly we'd never be a match. Meanwhile, I see
women all the time who have something very appealing about them, an
energy or charisma that a snapshot won't always capture.
So be bold and write back, okay? Or be even more bold and write
first. Otherwise, this is all just some sad peep-show.
Best of luck to you!
