Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Read on, and be amused! If you're not completely satisfied upon
completion, then... you lose.
Anyway, enough about you. Here's me!:
I'm an old school gear head, the untamable James Dean-type. And, if
you don't know, he was a pretty awesome guy. Heck, I was named
'James' after him! (Okay, I was named after my Grandpa, but who's
In other news, I come from several generations of drag racing, and
fast, loud cars are one of my passions. I also enjoy writing,
having self-published a book, just for fun (actually mostly for
money), so brains are also part of the package. Need proof? I know
what the word 'adiaphorous' means. Just don't ask me how to say
In the past year or so, I've become an avid U.S. coin collector,
which probably stems from my love of American history. Either that
or the fact that I just like money in general.
I think cheese is AWESOME.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides trying to get a multi-million dollar writing career
started, I'm pretty much a full-time artist, and occasionally I
work in my Uncle's high performance automotive shop, which I love.
Getting to work around and with race cars all the time is awesome.
Someday, I'd actually like to travel the country and race for a
living, doing artwork and writing at the same time, but what I'm
doing now is the next best thing.
Although, I feel that testing mattresses and/or ice cream would be
an awesome job.
Unless you value love and relationship high above all else, you
should probably skip this part:
As a freelance writer/artist, I've learned that there's definitely
a hand-off between doing what you love and being happy/sane, and
doing something you don't love and being wealthy/stressed. (Read
between the lines: you won't fall in love with my money. Unless you
need a 1921 silver Peace Dollar for your collection.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As previously stated, I'm an artist, first and foremost, and I love
writing. Everyone (even the complete, unbiased stranger) has
enjoyed my work. You can check it out for yourself on Amazon, just
search for 'The Ballad of Carson Creek'. Playing guitar and
composing music is another talent that I posses, but it's a talent
that I don't use as often as I should. I've been told I make killer
mixtapes, though, and I agree.
I'm also pretty good at breathing--been doing it my whole life.
And, lastly, I'm an excellent blinker. Practice makes perfect. Go
ahead. Blink for me. Prove to me our compatibility. BLINK FOR ME.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
How well I breathe and blink.
Unless I happen to have a leech hanging off my face. Then they'd
probably notice that first.
"Honey, look at the leech on that guy's face!"
"Yeah, but he's blinking like a total boss! I'm leaving you for
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love classic films, Rear Window being my favorite, but I can
appreciate modern offerings as well, an example being Crazy Stupid
Love, which I thouroughly enjoyed.
A few others:
-The Royal Tenenbaums
-Raiders of the Lost Ark
-Star Wars (OT)
-Breakfast At Tiffany's
And the list goes on. Pretty much anything directed by Hitchcock,
Tarantino, Wes Anderson or Billy Wilder. I'm a bit of a film snob,
I guess. But I'm okay with that.
I'm all over the map when it comes to music. Everything from Sigur
Ros to Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin to The National. I go through
phases of doo-wop, soundtracks and/or obscure 1970s progressive
rock. It'd be easier to say what I don't care for all that much:
rap and most country, and there are even a few songs from those
genres that I'm able to stand. (And a few family members have been
wearing me down as far as country goes... I'm getting used to
Don't watch much TV, but I do find The Office amusing, along with
Family Guy (giggity), The Simpsons, early Entourage, and Eastbound
and Down (my favorite). I lost track of Dexter and Breaking Bad,
but I did enjoy them while I was keeping up.
And I don't really read books much, either; I just write 'em.
UPDATE: Lately, the more I watch and study it, Pulp Fiction is
closing rapidly on Rear Window for the top spot on my fave film
list. And, for the record, I LIKE mayo on my fries. Shut up,
Food... Don't like sauerkraut, peanut brittle, mustard, baked beans
and grapefruit (though I love the smell of grapefruit, probably one
of the best-smelling things ever). Pretty much everything else is
a-okay. Except bugs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not that hard to please... As long as I have my iPhone, I'm
pretty happy. And cash. Can't live without that... Oh, probably
oxygen. How about food and water? Are socks and underwear one, two
or three things? Whatever, I lost count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- What do blind deaf people dream about? This greatly perplexes me.
If you have an answer, please share.
- Why do so many girls write 'love to laugh' on their profiles? I
mean, isn't that a given? I never once walked out of a hilarious
movie and said, "God... I hate laughing." I just don't understand
you, I guess.
- Sex. Haha, just kidding. No I'm not.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I work for myself, pretty much any night can be Friday
night... Maybe a bit of grocery shopping, perhaps going out for a
drink, possibly trying to break the sound barrier, probably working
on my time machine.
But most likely just eating pizza and thinking about girls in Yoga
pants. THERE. I said it. Happy now? God, you're so nosey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm... I can't do a handstand. Well, there are probably a lot of
things I can't do, but that's the first thing that rushed to my
head. Pun. INTENDED.
I wanna be a millionaire playboy when I grow up.
After 20 years, I still think the three daughters on Step by Step
are hot as hellfire. Go ahead. Laugh.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're Kate Beckinsale or Sienna Miller. Heck, you can BOTH message
me. But why in the world are you on an Internet dating site??
You're both married! I won't tell anyone, though...
If you're not on the aforementioned VIP list, but you're still a
sexy-- er, I mean 'an attractive, sweet person who enjoys laughing
(haha), loving, and late night drives to nowhere', hit me up. I'm
pretty easy to get along with.
*If I don't reply, one of three things has happened:
1: you're neither Kate Beckinsale NOR Sienna Miller
2: you're just not my type. I'm not a stuck-up, shallow jerk, I
just know what I'm attracted to, and I don't see any reason to
waste someone's valuable time. Namely mine. (I kid, I kid)
Or, C: You just say 'hey'. 'Hey's for horses. Why the long face?
C'mon, give me something to work with here! Unless you're
incredibly beautiful and super interesting. If that's the case, you
can just send me a message full of random numbers and I'll reply.
