Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's almost guaranteed that I will not message you first. There are
a variety of reasons behind this, but the primary one is that I
seem to have the worst possible instincts in that
If I see a profile that looks interesting and shows intelligence
and thought and an overuse of the word "and" while completely
eschewing the phrase "I'm a laid back..." and "I never know what to
write for these things..."; I will get so excited at the
possibility of this person having an opinion without being afraid
of that opinion that I will completely miss that in the third
picture they are wearing a big pointy white hat with a white
Terrible instincts in that regard. So yeah... I tend to not say
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Breaking the habits of the past decade and replacing them with
healthier, or at least more interesting ones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Overcompensating for things I don't need to compensate for. Like
tipping a bit extra because I thought my voice was a tad on the
terse side when ordering a latte.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to occupy the space that I am in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Currently reading a lot of sci-fi and fantasy. Mostly because when
the authors I like start to get heavy handed with the "This is a
metaphor for social issue #17" type stuff they can go "And
JETPACKS!!!". It just helps to take the edge off.
Again, heavy on the Sci-fi Fantasy stuff for movies as that is
where I'm seeing the best character work. Most dramas and comedies
that are billed as such recently have had very flat banal
characters. Even the movie adaptation of "Choke" which could have
been immensely dark and twisted still took the wonderfully flawed
and nuanced characters from the book and reduced them to one or at
most two aspects of those characters so that the "average audience"
will understand it. But RDJ gets to play all of the nuances of Tony
Stark because the "average audience" for comic book films expects
it after Toby Macguire played Peter Parker, and Heath Ledger made
the Nolan Trilogy Watchable.
I don't own a TV or miss having cable since I do have netflix.
Mythbusters, Walking Dead, Historical documentaries, and Dr. Who
are pretty much the core of what I've watched TV wise for the past
For live shows: Even shows i don't like I still tend to enjoy as I
will analyze them for production/ character ideas. you don't have
to ask twice.
Musically my collection is all over the place, although the growth
has been hindered over the past few years by a combination of
economy and not hearing a whole lot that I actually liked. (Auto
-tune as a standard just makes me cringe).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, I usually read at least 2 a week. Although I recently sold
almost all of the books I owned in anticipation of a move that
My guitars, although I have been picking them up less often
Music From various genres. If I had to pick just one genre to get
by on I'd be in trouble.
Oxygen and carbon. (there had to be one obvious trite one)
Art in general, although leaning more towards performing arts. I
tend to dislike museums because everything in them feels dead to
me. Art needs to be in a human environment. Otherwise it's just
pretty pictures of flowers and nekkid people.
Computer based entertainment...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sex, politics, God, comedy, and music
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Virtually relaxing talking to some friends I don't see enough face
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I need to be the "Ugly one" in my relationships. Not saying I'm
only attracted to people "out of my league". It just helps balance

You are an obscenely wealthy person who wants to give the illusion
of having an affair by meeting me someplace discreet, and then
paying me a large amount of "hush money". (it's worth a shot)
You want to.
You think I should have messaged you first.
