Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TLDR: Socially awkward/distant dude looking for
Hi I'm James, I'm not extremely athletic but I enjoy horsing around
at the pool, I don't have abs but I'm not fat, and the minimal
amount of interest I have in fitness is easily clouded by my love
of all things starch. Take a look at my arms though *winks
awkwardly*, they look like they could totally lift the necessary
tools and grocery bags to make you a damn good dinner.
Excluding that I'm a total book worm, the best way to get me
talking is to reference a good book. Especially if its a horror,
fantasy, or mystery. I like to know when people actually read my
profile, so please send me a message with your favorite fruit in it
to show that you did. On the rare occasion I like to read the
dreaded non-fiction, or take in a book based in some realm close to
reality. Fair warning though, they are typically very sad books and
send me into an emotional spiral that can only be remedied with
copious amounts of Ice Cream... An example of that fact is that I'm
pretty sure The Fault in Our Stars single handedly raised my weight
by 45 pounds. Yeah, I actually get more attached to fictional
characters than I do to my actual friends.
In case that wasn't proof enough that I'm a mess;
1) I love being in small enclosed spaces & I'm a giant.
2) My Favorite type of pet in the world is Cats & I'm
3) 75% of my friends are vegans/vegetarians and I'm a
4) I think I'm funny...
Still interested? Well I'd be happy to show off my rockin car, its
11 years old, only has 3-5 visible dents, comes with a broken air
conditioner, and has a tendency of deterring snobby people from
interacting with me...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
- I'm doing quite a few things with my life, and I'm not sure where
- Recently I've managed to save enough cash that going to college
is finally feasible so I'll be starting that up in the summer
semester at SCC.
- As for my job I'm helping my mother open her restaurant out in
Augusta "The Silly Goose" (shameless plugs are fun) which is why
I'm moving back in with her temporarily (ie one or two months while
we get everything started) so I can be available whenever needed.
However, I've managed to keep my mind preoccupied with a Crime
novel I've been writing in the spare time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making other people look good. My social awkwardness, lack of
poise, and tendency to fall over without warning make the people
around me look like geniuses...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm large, not fat, just tall and broad. I'm 6'3 and I've got the
build of an out of work lumberjack. Due to that small children have
the tendency to open conversations with me using the phrase "you're
HUUUUGE!" I've also been referred to as a Nephilim by more than one
person, gotta love the creativity with that nickname.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The most dominant form of entertainment for me is definitely books.
If I could build an underground library and only come out once or
twice a month for rations, I'd be the happiest person in the
A couple of recent favorites include The Child Thief, Apathy and
Other Small Victories, Divergent, The Night Angel Trilogy, Crank,
Perks of Being a Wallflower, and House of Fallen Leaves.
As for movies I'd have to say Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, The Help, The Perks of Being a Wallflower (It's a movie too
:D), and 500 Days of Summer.
Shows: whatever I've locked myself away to watch on netflix for 48
hours straight this week... (Currently Parks and Recreation)
Music: This depends entirely on my mood; for example on any day of
the week I could be belting Disney, dancing the two-step, humming
some old school rock, or chilling to trance.
Food: I'm a carnivore, this will never change. The concept of
rabbit niblits touching my food visibly upsets me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
5) A Pocket-Knife
6) Titanium Spork
(I answer questions a little too literally sometimes)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Most of the time I'm thinking about writing or story ideas. If
that's not the case then I'm probably creating some elaborate
escape scenarios for every possible doomsday scenario; Armed
militia taking over the county, a sudden zombie outbreak, giant
earthquakes, etc... I'm being genuine at the moment, that's the sad
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a bar chatting it up with a favorite bartender, or chilling out
at a cafe reading a good book, or at home doing the most private
thing I'm willing to admit... (see below)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If left to my own devices I'm not above eating mint chocolate chip
ice-cream and watching Grey's Anatomy.
