Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy life to the fullest, and rarely have a dull moment. I spent
12 years on higher education, and am just now entering the "real
world" (sidebar: the advertised horrors of the "real world" have
not really materialized; having an income is fantastic). I love
hanging out with my friends (who doesn't). I'm somewhat sarcastic.
I watch reality trash on VH1
and I'm not ashamed of it. I can't
dance, but I still try. I hate cold weather. I think Batman is the
best superhero. Superman is boring. I enjoy trivia
only if it's completely
irrelevant. I'm somewhat of a nerd
. Actually, I'm a pretty big nerd, but
that comes with the territory of having done inconceivable amounts
of higher education. I've also become a bit of a runner lately (who
knew!), and hopefully will be able to maintain my efforts through
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm new (ish) to the ATL (is it still cool to call it that?) , so
I'm learning the city and trying all sorts of new things here
(other newbies: Sweetbread is NOT what it sounds like here.
Sweetwater sort of is.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling good stories. My life experiences have been pretty good so
far, and I have a lot to share.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They think I look like Michael Cera
's character in Juno
(Paulie Bleeker) or Jason Biggs in American Pie. And no, I've never
knocked up a 16 year old or fornicated with a pastry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As far as books go, the two authors I enjoy most are Kurt Vonnegut
I have read all of the Harry Potter
books (again, not
ashamed), and I'm game for any good story really. I'm not a huge
movie buff, but I do really like mindless comedies (sort of a
guilty pleasure) like Happy Gilmore, Tommy Boy, Wedding Crashers,
etc. You get the idea. My musical taste varies from pre-teen pop
(Miley Cyrus/Katy Perry/Kesha, etc aren't THAT bad) to polka (my
grandma loved the polka show on the radio growing up), and
everything in between. I mostly prefer 90s/2000s pop and rock, as
well as some country (I grew up in Appalachia, give me a break).
I'm not particular at all about food, with rare exception. One that
comes to mind is that I really hate mayonnaise
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. DVR: I have a pretty hectic life, and this allows me to feed my
TV addiction without interrupting my life.
2. Ipod/phone: I really love music, and having it available on the
go is a must. The iphone also serves the function of "directional
savior" in that my tendency to get lost has gone down exponentially
3. Bike: One of my favorite things to do in summer is to go for a
random ride; I'm trying to learn more about the PATH system here so
that hopefully I'll be able to use it to explore a little.
4. Voice Mail: I'm reasonably busy, and miss about 50% of my phone
calls (probably an exaggeration).
5. Athletic Shorts: When I'm not in public, I wear them 90% of the
6. Alarm clock: A little too practical maybe, but honestly there is
no way I would be able to get up at the obscenely early hour of the
day that my job requires without it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the hell didn't I invent the selfie stick?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It really depends on the Friday night. Work responsibilities keep
me busy, so sometimes I have to take care of that stuff. But on an
ideal Friday night, I'm hanging with my friends, either at a bar
enjoying drinks or elsewhere.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are intelligent, interesting, etc. Interesting is the most
important part; I hate boring people.
