Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've never broken a bone. Which impresses me considering how
buildings, cliffs, and objects I've fallen off of.
But I have seen wolverines in the wild. Twice.
I'm powerfully average in some ways. I work in IT. I wear medium
t-shirts and pants with a 32" waist. I find pot roast and potatoes
immensely satisfying. I have a shoe shine kit. I go to the gym
frequently enough to not be a fat ass, but not so often I actually
look like it. I ride the train to work; I read the Economist. I
smile at children. I am the 30 something white eveyrman.
What makes me rare: I have a soothing baritone that encourages
people to take my words as fact, even when they're clearly not. If
it's a task I have any ability for, I can learn very quickly. It
makes me good at jobs. I saved a friend from drowning. A few jobs
back, I cost an employer well over six figures and they didn't fire
me. The second best vindaloo I've ever had is one I made.
New York is home.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Working a lot. Trying to balance the stresses of what I've
taken on professionally with trying to give my friends good reasons
to keep inviting me out, even when I'm absent for weeks at a time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a great friend - people who know me keep me around. Also
cooking; navigating; having good stories; my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice - I sound like James Earl Jones.
That or the steely calm entitlement that comes from a certain type
of private school upbringing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Collapse, The Diamond Age, Catch 22, Hitchhikers Guide to the
Dirty Pretty Things, No Country for Old Men, Casino Royale.
QI, Top Gear, The Mind of a Chef, anything with David
Almost everything Devin Townsend ever recorded, Lamb of God,
All food. Has everyone here been to the Golden Mall in Flushing?
Holy crap that place holds the absolute record for
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good people, precise words, music to hush out the world, lush
flora, good cause for optimism, my sprawling imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Human relationships and how I can help the people I love be
And food. I spend way too much brainpower planning meals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home, actually. Friday night is for resting - its the other 6
nights that are for fun and (usually boozy) excitement.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't care for ice cream and I'm a terrible liar.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have stories to share. Or you want an activity partner. Or you
want someone to have a cook off against.
I have many friends, but there's a certain part of one's brain that
only gets exercised when meeting new people and getting out of
comfortable circles. I'd like to keep that sharp.
