Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I won't start off with trite things about how impossible it is to
fill in these kinds of summaries, nor will I rattle off a random
list of things about myself. Those types of profiles always come
off as rather pompous (or bombastic, if you are feeling so
inclined), don't they?
I guess I'm a conglomeration of your typical types: part nerdy
student, part athlete, part musician, part writer. I enjoy laughing
and listening to music with the windows down and the wind blowing
in my face; I like men; I like holding hands; I love my family and
my few close friends; I love reading and discussing books and ideas
that move me and change me; I really enjoy playing and watching
sports; I like a good argument or discussion. I love being
I don't care too much for the typical "gay" scene. And by not too
much, I mean not really at all. What I really want in life is to
find someone I am happy with who challenges me and then to lead a
pretty normal life: visiting family on holidays, going on vacations
together, maybe a pet, maybe even kids (let's not get ahead of
ourselves here), play some sports, etc.
That's the long term vision, at least. Short term would be that I'm
up for dates and getting to know people. Life can be fascinating if
you go out and live it. I believe there has to be crossover from
the world of the Internet to the real world at some point.
Pretty typical so far, huh. Well, I suppose I'll differentiate
myself in other ways if you get to know me outside of this box.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I taught for a few years after I graduated from college, and now
I'm trying my hand at writing. So basically what that means is I
have a bunch of part time jobs. I'm also now almost done with my MA
in English, so if you hate books, we probably won't be friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking. Talking. Breathing. Recently: cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order...
- my sister
- my dog
- my car/phone (not the same thing I KNOW. I just chose 7 things
instead of six.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Without sounding too pedantic - the meaning of life. I mean, we
have to figure it out at some point before we die, right?
Besides that, when I have time of course, I think about improving
the things in my life over which I have control, and learning to
let the other things go.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually in my house relaxing with a friend or two listening to
music, talking, and/or watching a movie. Sometimes I curl up with a
book, while other-times I venture forth into the world for
bars/clubs. The latter does not happen nearly as much.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sweat a lot. And not metaphorically - literally. Apparently it's
healthy...or so my doctor says. I'm suspicious still.
I guess more private things are that I secretly love writing music
and singing and want to be a musician. Don't tell anyone

hot. But nobody's perfect, so write anyway and we'll go from there.
