Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a small retail shop owner, a single dad, an INFP, a nerd, a
linguist, and a book-addict with no intention of recovering. I have
been to thirteen different countries, and lived in two of them. I
love languages and history; I read a ton of non-fiction but prefer
movies for my fiction. I love terrible movies, especially horror,
sci-fi, and fantasy. I like meeting new people, but tend to forget
that and stay in instead. I can be a know-it-all; I try to limit
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have opened up my own brick-and-mortar shop on Southside where I
get to meet fellow nerds and geeks and sell to them. When I am not
working, I am a Dad, an occupation that brings me tremendous joy.
When my little guy gets to be 18 or so, I plan to go back overseas
and teach; my other passion.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, analyzing languages, history, and politics, reading body
language, listening, giving rub downs, remembering trivia
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a fairly big guy; almost 6 foot with broad shoulders, so I look
bigger than I am. My eyebrows and jaw are rather brutal looking;
the beard and mustache, despite making me look like a movie
villain, are there to soften my face. I have been told that my eyes
are very intense looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Lord of the Rings, Gorky Park, and a huge pile of really
dry, boring history books that I love.
Movies: Almost any sci-fi, fantasy, or horror, whether good or bad
(bad ones are fun to laugh at). But I usually avoid gore- it's a
cheap, lazy way to get a scare, so it is sooo over-used. I like
other movies, too: Fight Club, The Fisher King, and Men Who Stare
at Goats stand out.
Shows: Crime dramas, Bones, Grimm. I have all the old Buffy on
Music: I have an eclectic set of tastes- hard rock, classic rock,
Food: Black Bean soup, surf'n turf, ceasar salads, lamb in just
about any form (I have a wet rub for a rack of ribs that is to die
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son, my books, my cats, my family, my friends, my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Living my life to the fullest"?!? Really?!? That is just no help
at all. What does that even mean? "No, I am not living my life to
the fullest, I prefer to completely squander it". Nope, makes no
sense. Guys love to say, "I'm a nice guy"; another useless
expression. Everybody can claim to be "nice"; the only information
in that phrase is that he identifies as male. I'm pretty sure
Hitler thought he was a nice guy, too ("I'm a vegetarian and I'm
great with dogs. Yeah, I did some genocide, but, you know, what do
you want? Nobody's perfect.")
In other words, I squander my life thinking about these things way
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I deny everything, including the veracity of this statement.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The above sounds appealing. I have been (sometimes brutally) honest
in answering the questions; maybe more than is good for me. Be
honest with me, and we should get along fabulously.
