Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a one girl kind of guy and I'm not looking for anyone who's
involved with someone else/still pining over someone else/trying to
make someone else jealous. My last serious relationship lasted five
years, and ended nearly four years ago. That being said, I'm
obviously not willing to dive into a relationship quickly or with
anyone that isn't incredibly and extraordinarily unique and
special. I'm not an egg that cracks easily, but I will when and if
the right person comes along. I keep my feelings pretty close to my
chest these days, but I'm cautiously hopeful of possibly meeting
that one amazing woman that makes me forever lower my guard. If
you're not unique and one-of-a-kind, I'm probably not going to be
interested in you as anything other than a friend. Friends are
good, too, though.
I'm hoping to meet someone that I enjoy being around and have
something in common with and go from there, and it seems daunting
if you know how particular and eccentric I am. I can guarantee I'm
not like anyone else you've ever met, and whether that's a good
thing or not probably depends on your own perspective. I almost
never message anyone on here, primarily because I just don't "get"
most of the people I come across. (Reeeaaalllly sick of the duck
faces in your pictures, ladies! Pursing your lips to make them look
like a horse's ass is not cute. But I digress...)
I'm intelligent and articulate, and I'm most attracted to others
that are as well. I'll take brains over Barbies any day. If your
idea of literature is the 50 Shades trilogy, I'm probably not going
to like you. Like, at all.
I love movies, weekend getaways, good food, and I'm always open to
new adventures. Music is a huge part of my life and career, so any
interest in that is welcome. Friends often describe me as "quirky",
"an old soul" and "comically cynical". I'm completely fascinated
with the idea of fate and asking "what if...".
Basically, if you're looking for a bald, monosyllabic d-bag with an
I.Q. of 20 and a soul-patch, then you're better off throwing a rock
in any other direction because you're likely to hit one.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I landed my dream job producing a syndicated public TV music
program when I was barely two years into college, so I made the
tough decision to leave school but I've never regretted it. Since
then, that opportunity led me to a great career in
videography/television that I love and the occasional
composition/production music-related endeavor. Just last year, I
got my first credit in a feature film and even got to go to the
premiere. I also run a small online record store specializing in
rare and out-of-print titles. In my spare time, I like to travel
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything musical, of course. I can play mostly anything, or at
least fake it relatively well. I write songs and make records
whenever the spark hits me. I travelled all over the U.S. when I
was younger for various musical endeavors. The difference between
me and those other guys you know that play in crappy bands is that
I actually know what I'm doing mechanically, mathematically and
I think I'm a great listener and friend. I genuinely like hearing
other people's stories. I'm often the level-headed voice of reason
who solves problems when friends are having issues. I often play
devil's advocate not to change someone's mind about something, but
to encourage them to question and explore why they stand for what
The first things people usually notice about me

My blue eyes and my acerbic sense of humor, I think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A short list of some of my favorite recent-ish shows in no
particular order include: Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Seinfeld and The
Office. British comedies are good, too.
Given my profession, I'm well-versed in all kinds of music, even if
I don't like it. And, believe me, there's a lot I don't like, but
Regarding personal enjoyment and listening preferences when I'm
alone, I tend to gravitate toward British Invasion/British folk,
obscure 60's psychedelia/pop/baroque/garage rock, old-school punk,
arrogant French pop, old country, avant-garde crooners and some

I've never been a fan of Creedance Clearwater Revival. I like Wilco
and Tom Waits, though. A lot. They're American. So there's
Also, I'm not so myopic to argue that rap isn't a legitimate form
of art of *some* sort, but it is NOT, in fact, MUSIC, despite
whatever your booty-shaking friends may claim when they're loaded
at a club.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Everyone says family and friends, but it's true.
2. My pets
4. I drive a lot, so I'd have to say my car. Or at least a
5. Diet Mountain Dew. It's like my coffee.
6. Um... soap? I'm a really clean person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, death and the universe...
... and why no one gets that STEAL/STALE question right. And why,
when someone does, it's counted as an unacceptable answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at a friend's house watching a movie or working. Possibly
fighting crime as my masked alter-ego. You think I'm kidding.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You are your own person, you have class, you think for yourself,
and if you think we'd get along. I will probably NOT message you
first. I'm well aware that your inbox gets flooded daily by a sea
of losers that you'll never write back. IF I message you first,
it's a safe bet that I think you're pretty amazing based on what
little I have read and seen.
2. You don't type or text using ridiculous internet acronyms such
as "c u l8r", or "wrud"... (Yes, my life IS pretty interesting, but
I'm not big on providing quarter-hourly updates to someone that
can't be troubled to type a cogent sentence.)... Also, please know
the difference between "you're" and "your", as well as "to", "too"
and "two". I don't have many pet peeves, but that's a big one. I
can't truly get to know someone if their communicative skills
aren't above grade-school level. I know this sounds judgmental, but
there's no excuse for not having a primary language mastered as an
