Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Let me explain."
"No. There is too much. Let me sum up."
Amen, Inigo. How about I sum up in one word?
Let’s see. Fun-loving? Everybody's fun-loving. Who doesn't love
fun? I bet Fun would get lots of messages on OKCupid. Hmm.
Down-to-earth? Gravity and I do have a strong working relationship.
Sometimes stronger than I'd like. Maybe...sweet? I've a tooth that
is. Thoughtful? I'm filled with thoughts! Bacon? I don't see how
that's relevant. Dreamy? Not really. Dreamer? Much closer. Smart?
Silly? Friendly? Nerdy dorky funky funny goofy smiley grinny skinny
dancy chancy wearin' pantsy sneezy breezy never sleazy now perhaps
a little dizzy... One word, come on, dig deep...
I’ve got it! In a word, I'm...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Once, there was a wee lad. He loved to play. So when he grew up (or
at least taller), he programmed games for a living. But more than
that, he liked telling stories (like this one!) so on his own, he
wrote. Books and screenplays and games and such. And still he
played -- soccer, music, the fool around the office and the
campfire. Life was pretty good.
Then, one day, he met a girl. She wasn't a princess. She wasn't in
distress. And he didn't know what a damsel was until just a minute
ago when he looked it up, but he's pretty sure she wasn't that
either. Anyway, he met a girl. And they hit it off. And
Wait, hold on. The rest of the pages are blank. Odd.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. I hope.
Writing concisely. That's a lie.
Writing code. In case my boss reads this.
Listening. People are fascinating.
Shrugging. Not, like, the physical act. I don't fancy myself an
Olympian shrugger, for that would be preposterous. (Have you
seen those guys?) More like, life's a hoot for those who
laugh at themselves. Embarrassing moments are just funny stories
Cooking, remembering things, identifying car models, having seen
Pretty Woman, knowing pop music, fitting in at dive
bars...and by that, I mean I'm lousy at those things. Moving
Being an inverted Snickers bar: nutty on the outside, sweet on the
inside. The nougat represents my tolerance for imperfect metaphors
and hijacked profile questions.

twice. I'd discuss further, but my arms are exhausted.

"My, my. Here come the Fuzz."
"I've got a bad feeling about this."
"Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things."
"And why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up."
"Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?"
"'Cause how you get there is the worthier part."
"I think I'm quite ready for another adventure."
"Oh yeah. It's all coming together."
"To infinity, and beyond!"
"As you wish."
"It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the
road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you
might be swept off to."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The color green
Instant pancake mix
Sharp pencils and fresh paper
Counting to six
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. See, Future's buddies have neat names. Past is lucky
because his name sounds like "passed," which helps him explain
himself at parties. Present tells everyone her name also means
"gift," which is way clever, and shows up on status updates and
bumper stickers. But Future? He got a weird name that barely even
shows up in Scrabble. So I propose that Future should at least get
a sweet nickname, like "Possibility Gumbo" or "Dreamville."
That's the least I could do for my pal Future, given all the
dynamite stuff I hope he has on deck. Good health, good friends,
bad jokes. A job that's a blast. A wife who I still can't
believe is as crazy about me as I am about her. Enough money to
avoid its stresses. A summer cabin on a lake. And, also, life --
maybe adventures, maybe kids, maybe some of both.
Man, Dreamville. You're pretty cheesy, but you totally kick ass.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Close your eyes. Imagine...
The sinful scent of theater popcorn
The rhythmic wheezing of a bicycle pump
The thunderous chants of the ECS at kickoff
The quiet cacophony of that hole-in-wall Italian place
The mischievous clatter of dice and pieces and chips and
The fuzzy warmth of a mug clutched through a fleece blanket
The taste of grass a few feet short of a fallen Frisbee
That gut soreness from laughing to tears at the transcendent wonder
of Bad Action Movie Friday: Vin Diesel Double
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ticklish. Like, seriously.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're "real," but in no real rush; you're warm, and you felt a
spark; you're maybe a tad hesitant, but what the hell, you're
willing to roll the dice and carpe a little diem. (Or if you can
guess all the movie quotes. Or if you want the answer key.) Cheers!
