Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
ESTJ. Yes, I'm a bit of a Vulcan - firm, rational rather than
emotional, and consistent to a fault. As a result, my family are my
first priority even when they drive me up the wall, my closest
friends are still mostly the ones I had in high school, and I'm on
civil terms w/ most of my exes.
My life story is bizarre and complicated. I came to the US as a
refugee at the age of 9. I've travelled all over the world. I've
had multiple jobs involving blunt objects being swung at my head.
I've studied and even practiced BDSM as a means of behavior
modification. Now I'm building a career in politics, although I
consider myself a nihilist and an anarchist.
I'm a huge social science nerd and LOVE to talk politics, religion,
culture, human behavior, and sex. These topics are not taboo,
they're interesting. On the other hand - professional sports,
celebrities, popular culture, and trendy technology bore me to
I'm not a very outdoorsy person overall, but I LOVE hiking and
camping, particularly in relatively secluded places.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hold an MSW, and I divide my time between an independent Life
Coaching practice and short-term Community Organizer contracts. I'm
in the brainstorming stages (w/ a couple of friends) of launching a
political consulting firm that teaches "little people" political
self-advocacy, but we're not exactly ready for IPO yet. During
political work dry spells, I drive for Uber/Lyft if I need extra
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Convincing people I'm psychic.
Convincing people I'm a robot.
Making friends out of enemies.
Cooking bland but delicious Russian food.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If they initially met me online - it's the complete LACK of a
Russian accent. However, for women who find that attractive (and I
know you're out there) I can turn it on, and it sounds legit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I faithfully read profiles before writing to anyone, which I know
is uncommon, but even I NEVER bother w/ this section. Which leads
me to assume practically no one reads it and it's just plain not
worth keeping updated. If you want to know, just ask.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My family, including a few friends I consider family
- An Android device w/ high-speed internet
- My Smith & Wesson Special Ops (that's a utility KNIFE, not a
- Black clothing
- An occasional silence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Human behavior. Individual, group, societal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Times of day and days of the week are thankfully meaningless to my
profession, because I'm very nocturnal and dread the 9-5
However, I enjoy hookah bars, dives, coffee shops, a good local
show, and any social gathering more intimate than a packed downtown
I'm adept at counting cards (it's nothing like the movies), so
occasionally you might find me at a local casino.
I'm also perfectly fine staying in, but I do like to be doing
SOMETHING - even if it's cooking a nice meal and renting a movie or
playing a card or board game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make very elaborate yet low-budget Halloween costumes from
scratch every year, and when I wear them, I find myself secretly
wondering how well they might mask my identity for subversive

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Just go for it. I find interest and intrigue in almost anyone, and
I'm a lot less intimidating than I sometimes seem.
