Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there. My name's Chris and I am an introvert. It doesn't make me
a social recluse, though I am quieter and more introspective than
the average guy. I'm equally at home going on some crazy road trip
or sitting alone with a book, and I think it's healthy to balance
these sides of my personality. Beyond that I try to always be a
gentleman in anything I do. It's amazing how much easier life is
with a little patience and kindness.
I'm extremely open-minded and insatiably curious about most things,
and my sense of humor tends to be a bit oddball. Actually, I prefer
to be around people who aren't strictly 'normal.' Having a diverse
group of friends from many walks of life is one of the great joys
in my life.
Museums, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and the outdoors are my idea
of a good time. I also love animals. I'm not really much of a
I am also a nerd and not ashamed of this fact in any way. I've
watched an unfortunate number of horror movies, read constantly,
love documentaries, think historical reenactment groups are pretty
neat, know bizarre trivia about history, and generally think well
of gloom and strange architecture. I love board and tabletop games,
sci fi and fantasy, and would love to play Call of Cthulhu again
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. I'm obsessed with knowledge. I love picking up new skills
and approach new knowledge methodically and zealously. I'm more of
a right-brain thinker, though, so I'll probably never be doing
astrophysics. Which is a shame, because I think I'd make a great
I also love to write, and do so constantly. I don't really care if
I'm never published and no one ever reads any of it, because having
an artistic outlet is very rewarding. Historical fiction is my
favorite subject to write about, because I'm a history nerd.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, apparently. I asked other people to make sure. I was
hoping they'd tell me something weird like my shins.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Dune is my favorite novel of all time, and I re-read it at
least once a year. Lately I'm reading China Mieville, Ian M. Banks,
and the Dresden Files. If it contains folklore, science fiction, or
eldritch horror I'll probably be interested.
Movies: I can also watch pretty much anything....as long as I have
the appropriate RiffTrax. I'm a horror-movie enthusiast, although
Snatch is my favorite movie. I also love westerns.
Television: Hannibal is my favorite show ever. I also love Archer,
The Daily Show, Venture Brothers, Metalocalypse, and 12 Monkeys (I
was shocked, the Sy Fy channel is making good shows again?).
Foods: I try lots of strange foods just to see how they taste, but
shellfish and sushi are my favorites. I try not to have it too
often to keep the mercury level in my blood low. I recently tried
Ethiopian for the first time and found it incredible...if only
there were any closer than 100 miles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Weird adventures. It's good to plot about these things in case you
get the opportunity. I would like to make a getaway to the
north...far to the north. Far enough to see the Aurora Borealis
with my own eyes. Or at least far enough to experience the Autumn
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either packing for a trip or taking it easy. I try to find a
balance between activity and serenity.
