Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! How are you? I am a person. You are too? Oh. Good. (Oh god,
how do people write these things?)
It's been a good while since I've been on this thing so I'm trying
to update everything. And remembering how terrible
self-introductions are. Whelp, let's dive right in.
Alright, so I'm pretty much your classic geek. Board games and
tabletop RPGs are my jam (who the hell says that?), but I have my
fair share of comic books, anime, video games, and fantasy / sci fi
books too (and why are fantasy and science fiction always lumped
together?) (Oh god, nerd alert, calm down, man, you can still seem
I prefer smaller, more rural areas to the city, however that is
probably because I'm in denial. Or because I'm used to the Amherst
/ Northampton region.
I want to own a corgi someday. I will watch him/her wiggle and/or
waggle, and I will laugh straight from my belly.
For people who enjoy this sort of thing, according to the Myers
Briggs test I'm an ISTJ, and in the Enneagram test I'm a 5w6. I
figure that, while tests like these are not 100% spot on, they do
get a lot of the broad strokes, so go nuts I guess?!?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well I just moved to the Bedford area, so working (retail), looking
for new work, and generally trying to hang out with friends
whenever I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think that I'm moderately competent at anything physical
or spatial: Building, breaking, fixing, cooking, anything that
involves my hands or imagining the overall shape of a thing or
I'm also told that I'm good at explaining things, but I don't know
about that. I like to think it's true (I'm an English major, it
comes with the territory) but I've yet to see it come into
Also: Procrastinating! Though that seems more like something I'm
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People keep mentioning my voice. I guess it's noticeable? I've
asked my friends and they tell me it's deep, and I remember an
older man telling me that I should be a singer since I'd sound like
Johnny Cash (I don't think that's true at all, but hey, a
compliment is a compliment).
I've been told I should go into radio announcing or audio books,
and a friend who had odd hearing due to an accident had to tell me
to quiet down a lot since my voice resonated a lot more than anyone
else's (or something like that).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Name of the Wind, House of Leaves, The Dark Tower. Yeah,
a lot of fantasy and sci-fi.
Bands: The Mountain Goats, The Protomen, Death Cab for Cutie.
Food! Yes, please.
Movies? Shawshank Redemption, The Royal Tenenbaums. (I don't really
watch many movies. I seem to inherently dislike the industry for
Webcomics?! SMBC (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal), Dr. McNinja
(which is ending. Nooooooo!), and Homestuck.
BOARD GAMES?!?! Arkham Horror, The Village, Agricola (I'm just now
realizing that these are all games about dying terribly.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
And now, not in any particular order, but in a numbered list:
1. My computer / the internet.
3. My cooking supplies.
4. Books, books, books!
5. My leatherman. I love those things!
6. Uhhhhh... Welsh Corgis?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Games I want to play (board games, RPGs, video games, etc
-Sex (Doesn't everyone?).
-Corgis (This is mention #3, for those counting at home).
-Good presents for friends.
-How I can't dance.
-How, even though I set my profile to look for 27+ women, it keeps
sending me 25 year olds. Not that there's anything wrong with being
25 mind you, some of my best friends were once 25.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...attempting to unwind, hopefully with a friend or two, playing
some games and shooting the shit. I'm not the type to go out for a
night on the town; I prefer the company of friends I know and like
to hordes of the unknown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I probably don't like your cat. But I will pet that cat all night
You should message me if
