Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I unload trucks at Wal-Mart. Not only does this define me, you
should be impressed by it. The sheer brain power required to put
the boxes that say "13" on the pallets labeled "13" is pretty
ballin'. I got burnt out on the aviation industry as a younger
young man and I'm currently in trade school. I like working with my
hands, I just don't like doing it for 14 hours a day while covered
in Jet fuel. I feel this is reasonable, my lack of IRA
contributions this year disagrees.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Community college and minimum wage labor. This is my 4th higher
education establishment and the first I actually like. I'll be a
machinist in about a year and a half, which while not nearly as
mentally stimulating as picking things up and putting them down and
then (this is very important) pushing them slightly forward, still
seems pretty magical to me. I mean, you take this block of metal,
and then you do stuff to it, and then its a specialized useful
object that you created with your very own hands (and a bunch of
expensive machines). It's like being a Wizard, but in a union and
wearing safety goggles.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Walking long distances while carrying heavy things, fixing stuff,
tripping over things, fixing the thing I tripped over, etc. I'm
also a decent cook and give a pretty passable foot rub. I'm a bit
of a deadeye with a Nerf gun, and I'm a wiz at official paperwork.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile usually. Lately it's been my dog. But to be honest, she is
much cuter than me and I have been taking her pretty much
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've been netflixing a lot of british shows lately, getting through
the second season of 'Being Human' has been interesting, but
yesterday I went on a Scream Trilogy kick. I like sci-fi, fantasy,
historical fiction. Like anyone who's ever been to college I've
read a lot of chuck palahniuk. I listen to a lot of folk and blue
grass music, but I must admit the mexican house music they play
sometimes on 91.3 hasn't made me find a new radio station yet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have recently rediscovered the ease with which one can adapt to
completely different circumstances. So instead of 6 items or ideas
that I'm very fond of, i'll just go super practical.
*a sturdy pair of hiking boots. My feet are tender, despite being
hobbit-like. So this is obvious.
*one of those rubber ball/paddle combinations with the rubber band.
It's important to keep your mind supple, and thinking of ways to
continually repair the broken rubber band is sure to provide hours
*a device to filter water. I'm pretty openminded, but I don't want
to go straight bear grylls. Pee is unsanitary. It doesn't appeal to
*a good knife. Mostly for whittling things. Potentially for
buttering toast in a very dangerous manner.
*a loincloth. Satin and interestingly embroidered. Preferably with
dragons, possibly flames. Maybe throw some sequins on it.
*a nice thick towel. Like the ones your mom keeps for guests. No
galactic hitchhiker should ever be without their towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The philosophical differences between leadership cadres that would
explain the very different revolutions and insurgencies of two
neighboring southeast asian countries, and how I could possibly
shoehorn that into an otherwise normal conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting off work at 1am and wondering what got chewed to shit at my
house. Last friday it was a tube of vitamin A&D ointment. The
Gretch is a cuddly pretty she-bastard, but she's determined to make
my life more interesting through random and arbitrary destruction.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been the defendant in a murder trial in Tikrit. Like Matlock
in Arabic but without real toilets. It sucked a lot and I don't

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're down to tell incredibly dirty jokes, make air-burst glitter
dispersal devices, shoot said devices at inanimate objects, and
geek out over various cold war aircraft. Or if you've never been to
Pima Air and Space museum and you want a bearded man in his late
20's to go all excited 9 year old and explain how great various
helicopters are to you.
