Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intelligent, gainfully employed, creatively-inclined,
well-read, reasonably attractive, very fit but otherwise pretty
much just your standard-issue never-married Midwestern-born
I used to love being alone, but I now realize that there's plenty
of time to be alone when I'm dead. So I'd like to be alive and in a
relationship with someone who is also alive. That being said, I'm
open to dating a very attractive vampire lady.
I'm looking for a partner in thought-crime. Please don't have the
phrase "partner in crime" in your summary.
Either you're reading this summary out of morbid curiosity or you
have a genuine interest in finding out more about me. Either way,
I'm shocked and a bit embarrassed for you, but I'll take it. You're
probably a fun person who will enjoy my sense of--aww...who am I
kidding? Nobody is reading this paragraph.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've worked for a very long time in entertainment marketing. I use
the phrase "Now...they're about to discover" a lot at my job. I
spend my spare time publishing dating profiles and coming up with
titles for short stories and then not writing the stories.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Oh...a bunch of things. If you need someone to toast your bagel,
I'm your man. Got a flat bike tire? Booyah! I got a pump. Ever seen
a dude make a Halloween costume out of a garbage bag? Check me out
on Oct 31st. (Look for the plastic Batman.) Bring it: treadmill
running, sidewalk shoveling, movie ticket buying, shirt selecting,
paper tossing, Tetris playing, I'm good at all that stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The shape-shifting ghostly presence that follows me into every room
and my inability to take this question seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've found that having any of this stuff in common guarantees
nothing. We'll either find stuff to talk about or we won't. I like
podcasts, too many to list or care about.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friend who told me to make this profile more sincere.
A 4k display that tilts 90 degrees. (If you work in design, you'll
know what I mean.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The people I'm not meeting and the things I'm not doing...because I
decided to sit around and think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I hear the Morgan Library is free on Fridays from 7-9pm and I live
near it...so perhaps I'll typically hang out there from now on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I grew up in North Dakota. It's true. I'm admitting it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've finished reading all of this stuff and you are still
I'm not crazy about smokers. Ditto for Republicans. Hell, I'm not
crazy about crazy people.
Here's a new one: I'm traveling to France at the end of May for a
brief stint of work and a long stint of vacation. I would like to
meet someone who would be down for going there with me. That is
