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... Please also note that the unfortunate chin-beard has now been removed.***

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 OKCupid.

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 it.

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.

You're cute.
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.

I go to the gym more than I really want to. But it does feel great afterward.

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.

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. I get the feeling there's some "how-to" guide to online dating that half the people on here have sworn allegiance to. 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!
