Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit shy. As I've gotten older my social circles have gotten
smaller and smaller, so meeting people is a challenge. I've lived
most of my life in the Southwest, but I'm not really a
"Country/Western" person, but that's definitely left a mark on who
I am. At the same time, I've visited a lot of the major European
capitals, so I have a rather broad perspective on the world, I
think. I'm just a funny, individualistic guy who likes to read
Victorian ghost stories, learn about sciencey-type things, watch
very bizarre films and occasionally write vulgar poems.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Job-wise there isn't much to brag about, right now. I currently
have a lame job that forces me to go to bed very early on weekend
nights and only barely manages to pay the bills (lousy small-town
economy). When I'm not wasting my life in the menial work-place, I
work on commissioned paintings, and have assisted on some local
film projects. I try to stay involved in the arts, though there
hasn't been much money in it for me yet. I'd love to go back to
school and get a Masters degree someday, but I have so many
interests I can't seem to decide on one. I just moved to Greeley,
and am looking for a good guide to get to know this area!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at deflecting questions about what I'm good at. I
like to paint, draw, and write, but I only want to think I'm good
at them- others might say otherwise. I can identify several types
of insects down to their Genus because I used to work in an
Entomology lab. I am good at learning the histories of bands I
really like. Related to that, I am fairly decent at trivia games,
because I love learning things because pointless facts appeal to my
ego for reasons that make no sense whatsoever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't answer this with much certainly. Someone once told me that
I looked "swarthy" upon first glance, which I found rather odd and
vaguely insulting. In all honesty, I'm short, quite thin, and
quiet, so I tend not to get "noticed" at all. Mope, mope, mope.
Anyway, people may also notice I can be extremely shy, as well as
self deprecating. When people give me a compliment, I can almost
never accept that they're being genuine. Look, I'm not trying to be
aggravating, I just can't be sure you're not humoring me, OK?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love H.P. Lovecraft's weird cosmology, J.R.R. Tolkien (more than
is healthy probably), Edgar Allen Poe, and books with pictures. My
favorite films include Alien, 80s action movies, Cronenberg's
"ick!" stuff, weird 70s Sci-fi, the Star Traks, movies that take
place in fictional worlds created by perpetual child-men/women. My
tastes in music range from classical Erik Satie kind of melancholy
stuff, to the campy 80's punk-era Misfits, to the extravagant Black
Metal of Dimmu Borgir. Or from the gentle indie-rockings of Arcade
Fire to the manic weirdness of Oingo Boingo, to the raw,
concentrated emotion of Swans, to the dance beats of pre-2000s-era
Ministry. And as for food, I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy.
Which is to say, I'll eat anything with meat and potatoes in it. Or
cheese. Or red chili. But nothing beats fried chicken. Except pork.
And maybe desserts. If I ate as much as I wanted I'd be twice my
size, and a lot healthier, probably.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Edward Gorey, the Simpsons seasons 3-7, Space Ships, oil paints,
Skinny Puppy, a comfy bed in a quiet house.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What do ants dream about? Who eats the crumbs I drop on the floor?
If there were two of me, and I met myself, would I like me? What if
I liked me a little too much, if you know what I mean...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to bed nice and early because I have to get up for work at 3
am. Yep, it sucks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm willing to answer anything that anyone wants to ask.
