Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
-Marital status: never married
-Basic personality: shy (with strangers), quirky, untrendy,
curious, possibly intellectual
-Exercise: I try to walk 2.5 miles everyday.
-Myers-Briggs type: INFP (quiet whimsical sensitive nonconformist,
-Religion: raised Mormon, drifted away around age 18 and never
looked back. I'm not anti-religious but not a big fan of organized
religion in general.
-Alcohol consumption: minimal. More wine than anything else.
-Caffeine consumption: more into tea than coffee.
-Outdoor recreation: I'm not what you'd call "outdoorsy". I like
being outdoors, but not much interest in climbing or sliding down
-Special skills: I know tons of music trivia. You name a song,
generally I can tell you the artist and year.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in a field full of overworked/underpaid people, unless
you're a top dog. I'm not a top dog, but I'm trying to get there. I
also have ambitions to be a writer, and I've gotten some
encouraging news on that front, so that's something I'm going to be
pursuing more and more in the near future. (I'm currently working
on a novel about a religious cult...I should probably throw a teen
paranormal romance in there. I hear that sort of thing is popular
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning new things and sharing that knowledge, coming up with
creative ideas, making humorous comments, remembering things,
having a good taste in music, listening, talking, writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My quietness, my smile, how quickly I learn things, that I look
younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
First thing I have to say: I honestly don't think that sharing
tastes in all these things is a necessity for a relationship. Yeah,
it makes for more common ground, but I also think it would be cool
if you liked mostly different things, because it would help broaden
So, here goes with the laundry lists...
Books: nonfiction. Movies: very picky, generally into classic films
and non-lowbrow comedies. Shows: I work in TV so answering this is
a conflict of interest.
Music: Nearly 7,000 songs on my iTunes. Top 10 artists with the
most songs: Bob Dylan, They Might Be Giants, The Beatles, The
Monkees, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, The Band, Vince Guaraldi,
The Clash, Van Morrison. Good luck trying to make sense of all
Basically, I'm not really into a lot of things that are currently
popular. Not because I'm a snob (well, OK, a little bit. I'm an
open-minded snob), but because I have my own unique tastes and I
prefer to discover things on my own, not follow what everyone else
Oh, and I'm also not much interested in fantasy or science fiction.
So despite some nerdish/geekish tendencies, I don't qualify as a
nerd or geek.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, books, pizza, spring days, fall days. Even when those things
are bad, you can usually find something to like about them. That's
five. What else? Six seems like too small of a number of things to
not do without. Oh, I know, #6 is a list of things I could never do
without that's longer than six items! Kind of like the "wish for
more wishes" loophole.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, then walking down the street downtown when I get off
looking like a dork with my briefcase. I've seriously pondered
buying a saxophone case to carry around so I look like I'm on my
way to a gig. (Note: I don't know how to play saxophone)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm a private person in general, so admitting to anything could fit
