Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really don't know how to describe myself. So here are some things
that other people have said:
"You don’t interrupt. You’re not rude or crass. You don’t only talk
about yourself. You don’t have weird tics or fidgets.
You’re not creepy or annoying. You have good teeth. You dress
well." -- Female Friend from work
"You're cuter and younger looking in person." -- Female Friend I
met through Social Media (She also called me a "smart
"I like James. He's cool and pretty." -- a friend's 6 year old
"James was always one of the nicest most genuine guys I've
encountered in my stint here on this green earth.
I think he functions quite well." -- Friend who was cheering me up
after I commented that I'm "malfunctioning"
"You never struck me as the kind of guy who needed anyone to
complete him. You're pretty awesome as you are ! You say it but you
need to realize that it's the truth!
I've envied your musical prowess and your ability to talk freely
with others. You put yourself out there and I was never comfortable
doing that, introvert that I am." -- Same friend as the last
"Thank you for being one of the good people on here. It was a
pleasure and very refreshing." -- Woman on another dating site who
found someone else before we were able to go out.
"I hope you meet someone who is as smart, cool and cute as you are.
You seem like a gem." -- Another woman on a dating site who found
someone before we were able to go out.
"You're well put-together." -- Woman at 7 Horse Pub
"You're such a good guy all the time and then -- whoosh -- the bad
boy comes out!" -- Coworker
"I have a better question. Why the hell is a nice, thoughtful young
man like you still single? Women had better wise up!" -- Female
Friend of a Friend
"I think this is the most fun conversation I've had in a very long
time so I'd love to go on a date with you." -- A woman from a
"You're the nicest guy that I've met online." -- A not-so-recent
"You're a good communicator. Seriously, most guys can't talk about
what they're feeling. You do." -- Female friend from work
"Wow! You smell REALLY good!" -- awkward woman in an elevator who
was with her husband.
"That lady in the elevator was right! You do smell good!" -- A
not-so-recent date who had read my whole profile.
"Great teeth." -- Dental hygienist
"You're so sexy." -- A not-so-recent date
"If you only date one man this year, date James" -- Movie critic

I'm rated 8.5 (out of 10) on LuLu.
The critics are raving.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to find out who I am. Seriously. I used to party a lot --
staying out late listening to loud bands, drinking. Lately, I've
preferred more quiet environments. I've gotten back into reading
after a long hiatus.
Staring at stars when I should be keeping my eyes on the road (this
may or may not be metaphoric). Over-thinking unimportant things.
Trying to write songs. Forgetting peoples' names.
I gave up my job as a selfie photographer because I only had one
I just started a new job with the state. So far, so good.
My credit score is pretty phenomenal. I bet you are swooning.
I’m really good at

not knowing what I'm good at.
The first things people usually notice about me

are that I'm playing a guitar and wearing a hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman. Brandon Sanderson. Beach reads.
Movies: I recommend to everyone: Masters of the Universe -- an
awesomely awful 80s film in which He-Man, played brilliantly by
Dolph Lundgren of all people, ends up on Earth where he gets to
fight Skeletor's minions in a music store. Courtney Cox is in it.
It didn't win any awards.
**deal breaker if you talk during movies.
Music: Folky-Indie Rock. Americana. Some classic Rock. 80's music.
Alt Rock. Alt Country. Singer/songwriters. Local musicians.
Acoustic guitars. Open Mics!
**when you listen to music, do you really listen? If you say,
"let's listen to music," do you turn on some music and then proceed
to talk about a billion different things that have nothing to do
with the music? I'm someone who really listens and might want to
talk about what they hear. PS -- when people are talking to me and
there is music playing, I pretty much don't hear the person
talking. If you find that to be an endearing quality, we're a match
made in heaven. If you find that to be annoying, you're gonna hate
Food: Italian. Americana. Nachos. Breakfast. Cheese. Olives.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

drinks because you're only going to make a mess.

You should message me if

More importantly, you should write me if you understand introverts.
I like a lot of time to myself (time free from texts, free from
socialization, free from loud or intense environments/sensations).
I'm a lonely loner. On the one hand, I want to meet someone to
spend some time with, but I also need lots of space and time to
myself. To break it down into more concrete terms, I'm looking for
someone who I can get together with two to three times a month. I'd
like meet someone who wants to go to the movies, go on road trips,
take vacations, play mini golf, see bands, and maybe take walks or
hikes once in a while. Of course, I'm open to other things, as
well. But, I'm not currently looking for someone to eventually
marry or move in with. I don't know if I'll ever be looking for
that. Maybe the right person will come along and I'll change my
mind -- the future isn't set in stone. But, for the present, I want
to keep things more casual. (PS -- this doesn't mean that I'm
looking for hook ups. If hooking up is on one end of the spectrum
and getting married is on the other end, I'm looking for something
in the middle of that.) Is there such a thing as long-term casual
dating? That's what I'm looking for.
