Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm considerate, well-read, independent - a bit geeky, definitely,
but also well-rounded, I think. I'm adventurous, generous, loyal to
friends, beloved by animals. I'm an introvert by nature, but I'm
often funny and usually a decent conversationalist. I can
I love Seattle, and I love going out to visit new restaurants,
bars, museums, etc. I like walking around the city as well as
getting out of town for hiking. I'm not much of a party-person, and
although I go out with friends now and then, most evenings I'm at
home reading or watching DVDs. In recent years, I've become a fan
of strategy board games, too. When time and weather permit, I like
to get out of town to go hiking, but I'm not a hard-core
outdoorsy-type at all. I don't own a smartphone.
Update: I *do* own a smartphone. Still figuring out how to use it,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer and sometimes a writer. I work with low-income folks,
mostly. I have a background in social justice. I used be a private
investigator, and long ago I ran a bookstore. I even taught at the
UW for a short time. Life is a journey.
The first things people usually notice about me

Does anyone know the answer to this? It's like a zen koan.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, and I see a lot of movies. I have strong opinions
about both, but I also like all types and genres. Or rather, I like
many types and genres, from non-fiction to graphic novels. I like
to try new things, and I'll be more than happy to discuss my
favorites - or yours. I don't think pouring out a list of names is
very productive here. If you're a reader or a movie (and, nowadays,
quality tv) buff, I'd love to hear about what you're reading or
watching. I'm interested in why people like the things they like,
and I don't care if anyone agrees with my taste. I discover new
things to appreciate all the time.
I like pretty much all food. I don't really have a sweet
I like music, but I'm not really super excited about music. I don't
like loud, crowded places, so going out to see music performed
isn't much fun for me, unless it's for something really special.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A book to read.
Five more books....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Career, family, the future, the ultimate destiny of humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm increasingly self-conscious about this profile. I've rewritten
this entire thing dozens of times. I feel like eventually, by
process of elimination, I'll get it right.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've read all the way down to here, then you may as well just
go ahead and drop me a line.
Also, please be able to write and spell (more or less) correctly.
Emoticons make me frowny-face.
One more thing: I constantly forget to close my browser tabs, so
OKC thinks I'm always online. I'm really not.
