Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know the difference between their, they're, and there.
Remember, if I seem awesome on here, the only thing that's evidence
of is that I'm good at making online dating profiles.
I don't really like describing myself in sales pitch format, which
is what these essays invariably are. In reality, I'm a jumble of
contradictions, like most people. The most germane to this topic is
that I have a pretty good self esteem while still being plenty self
conscious about my failings, both real and imagined.
But here's the sales pitch:
I'm pretty funny when my jokes land.
I'm smart enough to know that I know some things and don't know
I'm pretty charming when I'm not over thinking it.
I'm a pretty good conversationalist when it comes to something
worth having a conversation about.
I'm pretty good at the things I've spent time getting good at,
though I still want to be better at them and everything else in the
I always look up when an airplane flies overhead.
The older I get, the more I think I want to be a stay-at-home dad.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you have something more to put in that
message besides a wink or a "Hi" and nothing else. If I sent that
to you, it would never fly and you know it.
EDIT: Since some of you apparently take that as a challenge, I feel
compelled to reiterate it. If you want to talk to me, "Hey" will
not work. You're not special, cute, or unique in reading this and
trying anyway. Send me a real damn message.
This is how I describe most of the women I normally date:
She is attractive, quick-witted, has a sense of style, mature but
irreverent, completely independent, and knows how to make somebody
Educated and curious, she is always ready to go exploring. She
hasn't decided if Los Angeles is where she wants to spend the rest
of her life but she loves it here despite those things about LA
that get on her nerves. She smiles a lot.
She has good friends and prefers discussing ideas and events rather
than people. She has a passion, preferably for changing the world
for the better. Traveling is a must.
Has similar interests, but can show me something new, teach me
something I don't know. Considers herself a challenge.
If you think this describes you or are just really fucking cool,
you should message me.
