Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, dating comrades.
So I am tasked with describing myself here. Well, here we
For an idea of what I find funny, search YouTube for Sebastian
Maniscalco, Bill Burr or Don Hertzfeldt. I regularly read Cyanide
& Happiness and The Oatmeal and I love Hyperbole and a Half
(these are all web comics).
Most of the time I dress for comfort -- think t-shirt, jeans and
flip flops. But sometimes I like to dress up all fancy-like and go
My latest geographic obsession is the Pacific Northwest. (Not for
the hipsters but for the scenery.)
I'm also obsessed with NIN and a big Family Guy and American Dad!
Also, I curse a lot. So if you want a prim and proper lady, it's
probably not gonna work out. (I should add that I don't curse in
front of kids and at dinner parties and all that.)
FYI - I'm not a workout nut, and I don't play sports. However, I
will go to a Mavs game and hit the blow up sticks together like a
One last thing -- I have five tattoos. They aren't visible when I
have clothes on. Just a head's up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a copywriter and proofreader by day and a comedy improviser by
night. I perform with a troupe at a local comedy club. We have lots
of fun and try not to hurt ourselves on stage. I also freelance for
the Dallas Observer sometimes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I make some really great potatoes. They are called Jane's Famous
I'm also a pro at making too much pasta, not finishing it, saving
it in the fridge out of guilt (knowing deep down I won't eat it)
and finally feeding it to the dog.
The first things people usually notice about me

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like non-fiction the most, especially humor and
I really love watching good stand-up comedy. Bill Burr, Patton
Oswalt, Louis CK and Sebastian Maniscalco are some favorites. A
night at a comedy club is a great date.
As far as TV goes, I'm in the middle of 30 Rock and Parks and
Recreation, and I watch some reality competition shows (Ink Master,
Top Chef, Project Runway), Family Guy and American Dad! Hulu+ and
Netflix are awesome. I don't have cable TV.
I love Chipotle burritos more than anyone should love burritos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Glasses (seriously, do not touch my glasses)
2. My MacBook Air or iPhone
3. Excedrin Migraine
4. Air conditioning
6. Daily showers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be better at improv.
When I'll get the nerve to try stand up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out at home or out with a friend getting coffee or
something to eat. I'm not into the bar/club scene, so something
quiet with a few friends/significant other is more my style.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear a bite guard at night. It makes me talk funny.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a non-smoker, about 28-40 years old (give or take a couple
years) and not religious.
Reasons I won't message you back:
- You call me a pet name
- Your message is one sentence long
- You make creepy comments about my looks (one basic comment is
fine, but computer cat-calling is gross)
- You are looking to make a friend (sorry, I'm here for a
- You have "casual sex" listed as an option on your profile
- You live far away
If you leave a nice message, but I'm just not interested, I will
try to send a little message back. I understand being on that side.
