Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there! I'm Kevin.
I'm happiest in a room full of people shooting the shit, or at a
bar with friends/acquaintances/a chatty crowd. I've had
conversations with all kinds of people about all kinds of jobs,
hobbies, passions, families, concerns, and joys. I love learning
about a person, and seeing life through their lens.
I love tech, internet culture, and video games, but I don't play
games much by myself. I strongly prefer to play with friends, and
get bored very quickly if I play solo.
I also love TV shows and B list or indie movies. I'm not really the
blockbuster action film type, I'd prefer something to make me laugh
I'm the guy you can count on for a quick joke or comeback, although
I make no guarantees on their quality.
Also, a note: while it would be awesome to find something great
here, I'd prefer to talk and be friends first. I'm not looking to
rush into anything, but I do love meeting new people and making new
friends. If that's a deal breaker for you, I'd really rather not
waste your time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As far as work, I sell software with a great tech company you've
probably never heard of (that is unless you're a UI developer) I
absolutely love my job and everyone I work with, it's an amazing
feeling, and one I think everyone deserves to find.
My weekends have lately involved a lot of seeing friends out by
Worcester or down on the South Shore, or going on some kind of
trip. I'm new to the north of the city area, so I don't know many
people up this way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Working on cars/Fixing things in general
Forgetting which songs I know on guitar when people ask me to
Making animal friends.
Actively avoiding participation in theme parties. I'll go to the
party, and I'll do your theme, but I won't be happy about it, and
my "costume" will show that. (In a generally humorous way)
Reaching things in high places (Believe it or not listing this
skill in my resume has landed me several interviews)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm quite tall and have a very deep voice- both of which get
comments quite often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV and Movies are a long and ridiculous list: I tend to prefer dark
and witty humor, I love movies with dialogue and TV shows based on
characters and their development. Boston movies hold a special
place in my heart. Let me know your all time favorite show and
let's talk about it!
Books tend to follow the same route: dark, dystopian, character
driven. I love the Kidd series & Prey series by John Sandford,
my favorite book is Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet. Catch 22 holds a
high rank there as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never do without is a strange thing: I could live with a few close
friends in the woods and be a happy man.
But the six things I use in my life as it stands?
1.) The people in my life, friends and coworkers.
2.) My acoustic guitar (although I'd hate to lose my electric
3.) My car (she's just so pretty)
4.) My bed (Ends every night and starts every day with
5.) My fridge (it houses my beer, and we can't have that getting
6.) XKCD updates.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This quote I heard on This American Life sums it up quite
"Over the years, Emir's told this story a lot. It might be his
favorite story that he tells about himself. It rhymes with this
view of the world, that there's just this huge, accidental
component to life's outcomes, that everyone owes at least some of
their success not just to chance but to other people being nice for
no reason at all."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking with friends, either at a small gathering or a local bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm so unfamiliar with the gym that I still call it James.
Feel free to get your stalk on, Twitter and Instagram are @kkurbs
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
