Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm revisiting OKcupid after a few years, as I haven't had much
luck in dating over that span of time. I work in upper management
at a grocery store here in town, and the hours are quite demanding.
That being said, I am looking to find a nice girl to spend my free
time with, who appreciates a guy that treats women with the respect
I've lived in Lawrence for most of my life, and worked for the same
company since I was 14 (I'm loyal to a fault). When I'm not
working, I love to write, record, and listen to music. I've

one of my songs was placed on the Showtime series "Shameless", and
ended up making it onto the official series soundtrack (look it up
if you think I'm joking).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I play a lot of instruments, and write/record music. I sing all the
time. Sometimes I am nice to a fault. I'm a good cook, and would
cook for myself every night if I had the time. I also have a wealth
of ridiculous sports facts and statistics backlogged in my brain,
so if you're ever on a trivia show, I will be your sports
I also am a great gift-giver, and I pay attention to the small
stuff that you may not even remember telling me.

intelligent, and I can certainly hold my own in an intellectual
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My singing. I am not shy about belting out songs on the soundtrack
at work, singing in the car, or pretty much anywhere. If you can

Either my singing, or my helpful smile. Or my willingness to go out
of my way to make things easier for someone else.

Family, friends, my acoustic guitar, spicy food, good headphones,
and my spice rack.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I write songs in my head, all day. It's a problem. They're catchy,
