Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Craig. Despite what my username suggests, I am an
awesome human not an awesome dinosaur. I am currently in an open
relationship with a wonderful girl. She dates on the regular, and I
thought I might stick my toes in the water as well
I'm looking for someone to laugh with until it hurts--like can't
breathe, tears streaming down our faces, ugly laughing.
I have caring and thoughtful friends and loving, drama-free family
relationships. I'm also a gentleman (the
kind, but not the pull-out-your-chair-for-you kind).
I'm open about myself; I don't have any big secrets to hide, but
I've also been described as a "tough nut to crack." And whether or
not you think so yet, I'm a nut worth cracking.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a DIY magazine and write a bit and work with really
nice, talented, and passionate people :) And learn about awesome
stuff that people have built!
I know from first hand experience that the first few minutes of Up!
are not good to start watching before going out on a Friday night.
That just-cried-your-eyes-out look isn't so hot out on the
I've lived in the Bay Area most of my life, except for a sojourn to
Santa Barbara for "book learnin'." I studied English, because
reading is sexy.
Usually, I don't mind waiting until movies come out on DVD.
I play board games. But only I win occasionally. I just bought a
copy of Betrayal at House on the Hill. There's like 50 different
scenarios that can play out, so it plays differently every time :)
Not a big fan of games where you have to crush your opponent
(Monopoly, Risk), but I'll play anything that takes some thought.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm kind of a snappy dresser ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll pretty much try anything once. Sushi, Thai, Mexican food is
I'm a sci-fi geek. The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson is
rocking my world right now! Anathem by Neil Stephenson, House of
Leaves, Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente, Neil Gaiman, HP
Lovecraft, and too many more books to name.
Tunes! I am living off Tropicool mixes at the moment. Goldfrapp,
Pretty Lights, Thievery Corp, Imogen Heap, Jamiroquai, Gladkill,
etc. Pretty much anything mellow and electronic.
Movies! Serenity, because Mal and Zoe know it's a trap, Wes
Anderson movies, The Fall, Forgetting Sarah Marshal. Generally for
me, "blockbuster" equals "poorly written." That said, I enjoyed GI
Joe: The Rise of Cobra more than I thought possible :P
TV shows: Pushing Daisies because of the whimsy, color, and Emerson
Cod's snark, Avatar because Zuko had to learn things the hard way
and boomerang does always come back, Firefly because intelligent
writing and strong characters make 13 episodes stronger than many
shows with a 100, Fringe because John Noble plays a nuanced mad
scientist, Wonderfalls because you listen, and lots more. Pretty
much scripted television in general.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Frappachino
hmm...nope, that about does it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-whether match percentages actually mean anything.
-that EL inverters are too loud, and wondering if fiber optics
would be a better choice for making light-up clothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Certainly not watching Up! Maybe playing games or getting a drink
with friends. Or rocking the couch and a blanket with a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I totally tear up at the end of Uptown Girls when the dude from
House starts singing the "Molly Smiles" song.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if:
-you think I'm cute and you like what I've said. And I mean that.
Don't message me to be polite or because you're bored.
-you don't mind sharing me. I'm not looking for a replacement
-you consider 144 characters to be highly restrictive. I'm looking
at you too OKcupid phone app users.
-and on the off chance you're still reading: if you see actors from
Battlestar Galactica on other shows and scream "s/he's a CYLON!" it
wouldn't hurt to say hello ;)
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
