Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You can ask about my full life story if you're ever interested, but
in short I think I'm a pretty good guy and I'm looking for a girl
who appreciates what I have to offer. It's certainly not the world,
but it's more than just a little. I'm a giver, I like doing nice
things for people, and all I ask for in return is honesty and
Like most folks in their mid-20s, I'm in a sort of transition
period in my life. I'm finishing grad school, looking for jobs, and
just generally trying to keep my head on straight while trying to
better myself in any way that I can (knowledge, fitness, etc.).
That said, I believe I've had my fill of "me time" at the moment
and am looking to explore any forthcoming romantic possibilities
(well, maybe not *any*). I don't believe that starting/having a
relationship would be spreading myself out too thin, as if anything
I think I'm at my best when I'm busy/multitasking. I'm not just
looking for a hookup, but neither am I looking for "the one" (I'm a
romantic, but not hopelessly so -- Ted Mosby I am not). I'm looking
for someone to complement me and enrich my life, and whose life I
can enrich in return.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hoping to soon start my own online magazine, once I get enough
collaborators. Aside from that, just finishing my Master's and
having good times with my friends and family. I occasionally
consult for a small independent film company, but that's just for
fun. I also write movie related articles and reviews for my blog
with a couple of friends.
Aside from productive things, I chill, I party, I go on adventures
with my friends, and am always looking for new things to do. Every
so often I'll take part in a Civil War reenactment (on the Union
side) because it gives my dad and I a chance to bond over something
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Steering conversations in awkward directions (I don't mean to, it
just happens sometimes)
- Critical thinking
- Getting along with just about everyone
- Finding the silver lining and ignoring it anyways - then later
deciding to embrace it because, c'mon, why not?
- Commiserating and empathizing
- Making everyday tasks fun (who doesn't rock out while
- Getting from point A to point B in record time but nevertheless
- Eating chocolate cake
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, and for some reason my eyelashes - girls tell me they're
quite long (shrug).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - I can thoroughly enjoy all genres (yes, even some chick
flicks). Also, I'm a movie buff so if I began a list of ones I
enjoy I'd never be able to finish it
TV - Doctor Who, Raising Hope, Face Off, 30 Rock, Nick at Nite, Top
Gear, South Park, How I Met Your Mother, The IT Crowd, Phineas and
Ferb, Game of Thrones
Music - Like everyone else my taste is eclectic, but my favorite
genre is (make fun of me if you want) symphonic metal
Food - Yes...I eat it.
Books - Anything I can learn something from
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- stimulating conversations
- my friends and family (yes, I'm counting them all as one
- the internet
- my TARDIS
- the voice in my head that teaches me to be a proper Englishman
...even though I'm mostly German
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People, both specific persons and in general. We are the most
fascinating things in the universe because we are hands down the
most confusing. Proof of this, to me, is that on rare occasions we
are incomprehensibly predictable. Seriously, what the hell?
Also, generally, the immense power of language(s).
And questions I'd like to ask people but never do.
UPDATE: I recently came to a conclusion concerning why
miscommunication often occurs between men and women. My suspicion
is that women consider actions to be inherently less ambiguous than
words, and therefore read more into what a guy does than what he
says. On the other hand, I would say men are the exact opposite,
explaining why we can (sometimes? often?) be clueless about picking
up a girl's signals and confused as to why what a girl says cannot
often be taken at face value. Agree? Disagree?
Or perhaps this is an epiphany that should have occurred long ago,
as now that I've written it down it seems a bit too obvious to be
original. Oh well, at least I'm making progress.
Also - and on an unrelated note - I think if anyone were to write
the musical score to my life, I'd want it to be Danny Elfman. His
music is like a great pair of breasts -- in your face, bouncy, and
in a lot of my favorite movies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at one of my favorite bars, seeing a movie, hanging around
Baltimore, sitting at home. What will I do this Friday? No way to

I'm exceedingly patient, except when driving. I find guilt to be a
powerful motivator. I have no tolerance for girls who play mind
games, or who like guys who beat their chests. (For those of you
with an interest in psychology, there should be plenty of material
there to draw a range of conclusions.)
Much of what I am I offer freely, the rest I give
Oh, and since the issue will eventually come up anyway, should you
and I ever meet, I've been told by my friends that I don't really
have a good grasp of which topics are socially acceptable to talk
about and which are not. So if I were to ask an inappropriate
question, just tell me so and I'll back off. No harm done. Or is it
that some of my questions are just ill-timed? Either way, just know
that some consider me to be overly inquisitive. You've been warned.

Hot Tip for you ladies out there: Guys really like girls who take
the initiative. If you don't care to do so with me, be sure to
consider it with someone you actually are interested in.
