Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, first off, you can just assume that I like most of the stuff
that everyone else on here likes. Travel? Check. Wine? Check?
Hanging out with friends on a Friday night or maybe just relaxing
at home? Double check. Fighting off invasions of alien robots bent
on killing every man woman and child on earth? Not so much. That
actually sounds like a pretty crappy way to spend a Saturday if you
I do NOT rock climb, play video games or have a band that you have
to pretend to like.
**Update** Crap. I started rock climbing...but I'm pretty awful at
it, so I don't know if that counts. Still no video games or
I DO own more than 10 pairs of shoes and know the difference
between french cuffs and barrel cuffs. I shave with a straight
razor. I race cars. I make perfume as a hobby. I've worked as a
bouncer at a nightclub just for fun. I read more than 50 books per
year, none of which have any literary merit as far an an English
professor would be concerned. I run A LOT for someone who looks
like a football lineman (like 20-30 miles/week). I don't talk about
work, not because I don't love you, but because it's kind of boring
frankly and there are so many interesting things that we could be
talking about. I talk to my dog in that high pitched voice that
people use when talking to children and pets. I enjoy going out
dancing, like actually to dance, not just to drink in places where
there's a dance floor. I like electronic music and get lots of crap
from my friends about it. I try to always smell good.
All in all, I do my best to be an interesting, well rounded person.
Sometimes, I even succeed.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Intermittently training to run a marathon. Enjoying my job. Petting
my cat when he purrs at me. Trying to make me into the me that I
really want to be, a harder, better, faster, stronger me that can
leap tall buildings in a single bound while carrying locomotives on
my shoulders and solving partial differential equations in my
I'm also working on setting and achieving realistic goals. That
comes after the locomotive thing though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Recalling obscure trivia. Advising people on perfume making.
Picking a thing that I'm bad at and then practicing it until I'm
reasonably good at it. Foreseeing problems before they arise.
Defying expectations. Telling stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look like a bouncer at a nightclub. I'm 6'4" and have a shaved
head. When I stand near the door to a club or a bar, people walk
over and hand me their IDs. Before I start talking, I can seem
pretty intimidating. Then I smile and open my mouth to talk and am
immediately transformed into someone easy to talk to and
comfortable to hang out with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read lots of Sci Fi and Fantasy for entertainment. Some of it is
good. Some of it is bad. Feel free to judge me. I've read enough
that when I ask for a recommendation, I've usually already read
I also enjoy a number of Spanish language authors (translated to
English), such as Jorge Luis Borges and Arturo Perez Reverte.
I watch a few TV shows, but rarely on an actual TV set. I enjoy
Archer, The League and Sherlock.
I like all kinds of ethnic food, and enjoy finding new ones I
haven't tried. I recently got to try Surinamese food while in the
As far as music goes, I like Electronic music and 60's and 70's
rock (especially the holy trinity of British rock). I was a huge
fan of BBC Radio 1 and was highly annoyed when it was removed from
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
● A shaving brush and a straight razor
● Some kind of cologne (It's important for me to smell good)
● People to meet and talk to
● Lots of stuff to read, preferably trashy Sci - fi
● Minimalist running shoes
● Witty banter
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A few months ago, the answer was: trying to wrangle up some people
to do something interesting. This is kind of like herding cats but
with the drawback that it's not as socially acceptable to manhandle
people into a plastic carriers and force them to go places.
Now...I'm like a leaf in the wind. Maybe I'll be heading out to
grab a beer. Maybe I'll be watching Netflix. This Friday I may go
to bed early to help with a children's chess tournament on Saturday
What I'd like to do is go out to some more clubs and maybe go
