Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Creative and quirky intellectual seeks same. Open to finding
something platonic, casually sexual, or long-term. And anything in
between. I also don't mind first dates that result in nothing
further, provided you can be warmly forthcoming about it, like I
am* (see below). I enjoy getting to know someone new, one-on-one,
no matter the outcome.
I'm kind, curious, articulate, often silly, and a great
conversationalist. Also? I'm kind of a biter.
Who I'm looking for (in the long-term): Besides the virtues most of
us seek, what I really need in a partner is mutual inspiration. I
want someone with fierce, intellectual curiosity paired with an
innocent and open mind. Someone with a brilliant and unique (even
odd) imagination. Someone who expresses ideas in a way that no
other human being can, or would. Someone who appreciates those same
qualities in me. That's the person I'll still love talking to when
I'm 80 years old.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mainly, settling back into the area after a few dubious years at
grad school. I consider myself an artist, first and foremost, but
thankfully I also have a stimulating day job that pays.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, reciting long clips of dialogue from movies, giving
specific compliments, other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tell me it's my smile, but more likely it's the dynamite
strapped to my chest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why you're 11% my enemy. And whether that means I must destroy you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm frequently told (not that I ever ask) that I am well-endowed.
So. There's one less thing I need to worry about, I guess.
I also don't drink anymore, but don't mind at all if you do. I
still dance, sing karaoke, and enjoy bars and parties. Just not as
often as I did in my 20's (well, the karaoke frequency may have
increased since then).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you're interested. Seriously. I rarely make first contact
anymore, mostly because things seem to go better (I don't know why)
with women who have reached out to me first. Regardless of my
interest, I admire any woman who's bold enough to shirk outdated
courtship roles, and make a first move.
As I mentioned earlier, I also don't mind going on a date or two
and having it go no further. But I do value the ability and
willingness to be forthcoming. Even if I'm not interested in
something more, I'm flattered and grateful whenever someone follows
up for another date, and I never leave such a compliment hanging
with no response.
I appreciate being treated the same way. Sending a text or email
that politely says thanks, but I don't feel a spark, seems utterly
simple to me. Someday I'll rewrite the book of basic dating
etiquette (just as soon as I find it).
In the meantime, if any of this resonates with you, then we already
share a few important values. Holler!
