Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm doing my Masters in a subject that I often have to justify to
other people. Or, at least I feel as though I do. And maybe that
says more about me than them. Probably it definitely does.
Currently I spend half of my week in Guelph and I get bored at
night. My solution is to see if anyone on here might like to waste
their time with me. I can't guarantee a good time, but I can
guarantee time. Like, I'll give you some time and hope that you
like me. I'd like to make other strong claims about myself, but I'm
not the type.
So I'll say this: I'm a relatively introverted, reluctantly smiley,
moderately funny human man who would make a terrible sales person.
I wear glasses that make me look smarter than I feel.
I like making, collecting and sharing the following: music,
literature, concepts, sweaters.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I mentioned some stuff above, but also: I am in an open
relationship with my long-term partner, and I hope that's okay by
you. We love each other a lot, and just happen to like and love
other people too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
some guitar playing, making people laugh (I hope), a bit of writing
and spooning. I've been told I'm good at spooning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I served coffee to a paramedic 6 months ago who told me I should
get an agent and start doing voice work. And he should know. Since
then another stranger has told me I have a good voice for radio. I
haven't pursued either of those things, but I guess what I'm saying
is my voice has been noticed by at least two people in history. So
that's what came to mind first. To be clear, I think my voice is
incredibly monotonous and that I mumble too much.

that I shouldn't watch them, but then who else is going to keep my
Netflix account active?

MST3K. And, if you'll allow me to be a snob for a moment, if you
enjoy Big Bang Theory then we should never meet.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you think we might have fun together. I'm here on OkCupid with
mixed feelings. I'd almost always rather meet people in person, but
I understand peoples' hesitation (and I am certainly not the most
confident of humans). As for who I hope to meet, I am fairly open.
I like relationships of all sorts: intense emotional ones, strong
friendships, sexually driven ones. So, maybe let's talk and figure
out what we can be to each other.
And also, I am an ill-experienced in relationships with people
other than cis women. I am open to whatever comes along, but I feel
like I should mention that in case it affects my desirability in
