Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Call me Evan.
I'm a pretty quiet guy in person with what you'd call a tad bit of
social anxiety. Awkward, I believe, would be the right word to
describe myself to a stranger. That doesn't mean I completely avoid
people though. I have a few good friends with whom I play video
games with, go to the bar with, watch awesome TV shows named Dexter
with, etc. Consider me a late-bloomer. I may be closed off when you
first meet me, but I open up with time.
I've never been a huge fan of interacting with large groups of
people, i.e. big parties, clubs, social events, etc. I tend to
stick to small groups of people, maybe myself and two or three
friends just hanging out, playing a board game, or going to the bar
and having a few drinks while we chat and play cards. I'm
420-friendly, but don't smoke much, if at all.
I'm not a big risk-taker, as most of the spontaneous decisions I've
made in life always ended badly. Of course, I still can be
adventurous every now and then, given the right company and
motivation (read: ALCOHOL).
If you haven't noticed by now, I do enjoy partaking in a good
alcoholic beverage or three every now and again. It helps me loosen
up and really helps me start conversations when I would otherwise
be too shy/nervous to speak up. Don't judge me :P
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working full-time on minimum wage just to get by.
Rent and student loans cost an arm and a leg, and without a car, my
options are rather limited until I can save for one. (I realize no
car is a major deal-breaker for many people and for that I
College may still be in my future, but with money as tight as it is
and the unfortunate necessity of a carpool buddy making it hard to
schedule classes, it's uncertain whether or not I'll be returning
to SVSU. People tell me I'm still young with my whole future ahead
of me, but at almost 25 with only a year of college under my belt I
feel pretty unaccomplished.
To be entirely honest, it's sometimes soul-crushing to see other
people my age, who are graduating/have graduated college, are
starting careers, going to grad school, etc. while I drag my ass on
the proverbial carpet working a minimum wage job with bills to pay
and little room to save money up for a car.
Long-term goals have never been a big thing of mine since I live
every day as it comes, but I know one day I hope to have a career
that I can be proud of. I've been thinking of going into
psychology. The human psyche is fascinating.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Being a total nerd/geek

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hokay, so it's been a while since I actually READ a book.
Slightly embarrassed by that fact. But I will always remain a Harry
Movies: If it's about a superhero I probably like it. Other than
that, no big favorites. I don't really re-watch movies a whole
bunch of times like some people.
TV Shows: Dexter, Game of Thrones, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Family Guy,
Futurama, Scrubs, Gossip Girl (sshhhhhh), and Battlestar
Music: Pretty much anything but non-music "music". I.e. Screamo,
death metal, gangster rap, and all that other crap. Been really
into Folk lately...
Food: My favorite snack mix is Munchies, I buy that way too often.
The Kauffee Haus restaurant on my way to work serves the
Frankenmac: a pretzel-bread sandwich that is delicious and served
with fried macaroni triangles which are equally delicious. I don't
eat as much as I used to though, so it's mostly Munchies,
occasional bowls of cereal and a good 'ol Frankenmac most days.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My Macbook Pro (with Bootcamp of course, I could never go
2. Internet (everything I do on previously mentioned laptop
involves an internet connection)
3. My phone (Mobile games for handheld fun, plus it's a
4. Music (because silence is depressing)
5. Friends (because even as closed off as I am, everyone needs a
shoulder to lean on sometimes)
6. Family (see above)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My thoughts at the time...I often lie awake for hours at night
simply recounting the dozens of thoughts running through my mind
over and over and over and over...
My future and how bleak I often worry it might be.

At home, watching something on Netflix, playing a video game, and

I'm probably a much more interesting person than I give myself
credit for, but my shyness and low self-esteem make it difficult
for me to show my true self sometimes.
