My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wanted to be a painter but had no technique, so I tried conceptual art instead. Irony deficiency stifled me, however, so I gave that up and went to law school, with plans to prosecute dictators. Needless to say, that didn't work out. I then set my sights on a more realistic goal and joined a rock band. But when the hypochondriac singer was airlifted out of Sicily after a fall, the dream was in tatters. Reluctantly, I took a law job. Then I read George Orwell's raw early work, which made me think there might be hope for me as a writer. The initial lack of progress almost destroyed me. Then somebody told me that all writers are bloggers now. I set up a page and went to foreign lands, posting pseudo-journalistic stories for a non-existent readership. Along the way I decided I wanted to write books about Eastern Bloc history. With one half finished manuscript taunting me, it seemed that discipline was the key. So I enrolled in an esoteric master's program, where I am now. The only thing standing between me and existential oblivion is a part-time job writing contracts. I have been described as "delusional, but endearingly so".

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Affordable aviation. Middle class cheese. Literature. All kinds of booze. Faberge eggs. I don't want to come across as greedy, so I'll donate my last choice to someone in the third world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Russian noun cases. But I promise I will never talk about them.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The website recommends that I give you tips about how to win me over. You could always try negging. Start with a subtle backhander like: "I think it's really brave that someone your age is on a site called OkCupid, even at the risk of being ridiculed by your peers."
