Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh man. I just want to put a disclaimer here. I am terrible at
written communication. I feel like my summary is going to have a
lot of spelling errors, comma splices, whatever... im not good at
writing in English but I can write the shit out of a power shell
script. Bear with me on that one.
Mostly I'm just a dude. I like art, live music, and technology. I
hang out with a bunch of artists but can only draw advanced stick
figures. I run a decent amount, not to look good or lose weight or
anything, it's just kind of my form of meditation. I've run 7 or 8
half marathons because Im really into the medals.
I pick up new hobbies all the time. Some stick some don't. Im super
into planting strange heirloom vegetables. Just got a guitar and
haven't played since 7th grade. Ya know... stiff like that.
I like to be outside as much as possible. I'll just sit on a bench
by the lake for hours sometimes. If you wanna go on a hike and not
take our cell phones or have a time we need to get back that's
kinda my thing. (Like later in a relationship. Just realized that
would be terrifying for two strangers).
What else about me... im from akron, ohio originally. I was in the
navy. If we go out I'm sure you'll figure this stuff out over time.
It's not really important.
Basically, I just like to live life and be happy. Outside of
family, love, friendship, community, i could really care less about
the rest of it. I rarely get sad and super duper rarely get
depressed. If that's your thing is gonna be kinda tough for me to
be on the same page all the time... if not holla at ya boyeee
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What am I doing? Well like most adults I work. Lame, but working
affords me the ability to go see shows go on weekend vacations and
buy strange clothes from thrift stores. I bought a guitar recently
but in all honesty I'm not "doing that" I'm just hoping to learn
row row your boat in the next month or so.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well a few things. First and foremost fixing your computer, unless
you have a mac, which seems to be the reason that most of my
friends call me to do them " a quick favor". I'mmmm good at...
making strange 80's style text games for my friends to play
(programming). I'm also good at running and consequentially body
temperature control. I'd say that 90 percent of the things I'm good
at are computer related, yet, wont help most people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ummm probably my hair. And I'm sure none of the pictures are
accurate because it changes frequently. Currently long but not too
long. Also if i have a tee shirt on people will notice the tattoo
of a mershark on my arm with her boobs out. If you are offended by
this is probably not gonna work for us.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Here's my thing with books. I love to read them but I hate
to finish them. This might seem strange. I have a stack of books
near my bed that im probably... 30 pages away from finishing.
In the stack, John Grisham, David Foster Wallace, David Sedaris,
Running Books, etc...
Movies: I've been on a huge "worst movies ever" kick lately. Here
are a few I've been watching. Troll 2, Dr. Giggles, Monsturd,
Basket Case, Iron Sky, Sharknado.
Music: I have a weird taste in music. I like a lot of old jazz or
even new jazz. Stacey Kent, Madeline Peyroux, Diana Krall...
Also a mix of underground hip hop. Living Legends, Sole,
Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Galapagos4.
I go to a ton of live shows in Madison. Every weekend style. If you
see me out say something weird to me and freak me out.
Food: Psshhhhhhhhh all of it
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Red Vines
4. Water probably...
I think I'll just stay at four. Lets not get greedy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things I want to write, ways to time travel, human animal hybrids ,
the red panda at the Henry Villas Zoo, what they make twizzlers out
of, that movie about those giant rock em sock em robots, random
places dogs might be hiding, hats on mail men, ways I can decide if
someone is a "runner" or "jogger", pizza toppings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping... I don't know. If you do the same thing every Friday you
are probably in a horrible work/life rut and you're really just
cycling through it all. Sometimes I sleep, sometimes I party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wrote a novel and I'm working on another book right now that is
much more goofy and much less novely. Its probably not very good so
I don't like to bring it up.
I am terrified of taking pictures. This usually only comes up when
I'm near people who love taking pictures and absolutely have to
have me in them.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested, and interesting. Don't message me if you are
just going to answer the questions I ask you and then wait for me
to be a creep and message you again. Better yet, if I messaged you,
and you are disgusted by my profile, you should message me and tell
me what an asshole I am. Nothing is more strange than messaging
someone, seeing they visited your profile, and then they never
message you again. That is how complexes are born.
