Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm working in my dream job. A lot of my energy is focused right
now on learning to be an effective attorney. I try to keep balance
in my life by seeing friends, watching football (huge Carolina
Panthers fan!), and listening to NPR podcasts (TED Radio Hour and
Ask Me Another are my favorites).
While I appreciate OkCupid's %s, I wouldn't let them close the door
on anyone. Here's a list of things that are important to me in a
partner (in no particular order)
1. Caregiver (nurturing, family orientation (not necessarily about
having one's own children, just that I have a great relationship
with my brother and parents and I'd do anything I could for
2. Physically fit (I would measure this by if she exercises and
3. Socially adept (friendly, expresses interest in others)
4. Confident (believes she is lovable and is comfortable being
5. Intelligent (gathers evidence for decisions and acts on her
findings, usually! Advanced education is nice, but you can be smart
without a degree to show it)
6. Expresses interest in my work and my interests
7. Not evangelical
8. Believes in protecting civil liberties
9. Independent (has her own interests and pursues them)
10. Values experiences and relationships over possessions
I tried OkC in the past and I always enjoyed meeting new people and
I frequently found myself trying things and going places that I
wouldn't think to do on my own, so I'm back to give it another try!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an attorney in criminal defense for clients who cannot
afford to hire their own lawyer. It's tough but rewarding. I feel I
make a genuine difference in people's lives and I am surrounded by
the best coworkers I could ever hope for.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love movies and I have a ton of favorites. Just to name a few: I
love Jarhead (I've never been in the military, but I feel like
there are so many scenes in this movie that I relate to my
experiences). I love Cool Hand Luke for the spirit that Luke shows.
American Beauty was a movie that helped me to see the world in a
new way, seeing beauty that was always there but I hadn't paid
attention to it. I think that's the mark of a special movie when it
changes your perspective.
Like most people, I have a wide musical taste. I like alternative
rock and country most of all. Silversun Pickups are among my
favorite bands. I've seen them in concert. I love The Streets from
my time in Europe. Wish Mike Skinner was still making The Streets
I watch sports on television more than I watch any particular
shows. I'm a big fan of the Carolina Panthers, watch them every
time they play.

If you have a favorite United States Supreme Court justice, I would
think you were cool even if I don't agree with that justice's
philosophy on interpreting our Constitution.
