Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there! I like reading
, and driving
(yeah, it's a poor use of a
finite resource, I know). I'm a huge history nerd
, and try to keep up
with foreign affairs. I think deeds speak louder than words unless
you're an excellent orator. On that note, my favorite presidents
are probably FDR, Lincoln, and Jefferson, as flawed as they may be.
Oh, and I firmly believe people should have a broad skill set.
Sure, I might be a huge academic-type nerd/English teacher, but I'm
a huge academic-type nerd/English teacher who can SCUBA dive and
fight forest fires.
Also, I'm in an open relationship with an awesome lady, submarineinabox
, so if
you're not ok with that then there's no need to keep reading.
I'm up for new friends and/or casual sex, but have my "looking for"
set more narrowly to see what effect it has.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently getting in the best shape of my life, kicking my ass a
couple of different ways. Initial results are promising.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at carrying heavy loads, random trivia, increasing ambient
absurdity, building scaled replicas of planes, predicting future
behavior based on past activities, and camping/outdoor stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, my eyes, my sense of humor, and sooner or later, my
absurdly good luck when it comes to having bad luck (getting
injured, but only millimeters away from a serious injury,
developing minor superpowers after incidents with lasers, that sort
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm. Books? "Guns, Germs, and
LOTR trilogy, stuff by R.A. Salvatore, Horatio Hornblower
Forester, instructional manuals with randomly useful information
(welding? Yes, please!). If you haven't read the Flashman
series, do so. He is a
thoroughly reprehensible and utterly captivating character. I've
recently been able to catch up on some books I've had piling up, so
I now know quite a bit more about the OSS
than I did a few months ago. Terry Pratchett
the rightful king of the English language.
Movies, Movies, Movies. "The Green Hornet
Waltz is kinda perfect in this)", "Inglourious Basterds
" are some of the more recent movies I've enjoyed, but my
favorites would have to be things like "The Godfather
", Sergio Leone
", "Apocalypse Now
", "The Maltese
" and about half the other films Humphrey Bogart
I've got pretty wide musical tastes, from Hayes Carll
to The Pogues
to Hank Williams
to The Fratellis
to Bob Dylan
to The Rolling Stones
. It kinda
jumps around a bit.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
These lists are kinda odd. I tend to take them far too literally.
So, aside from the obvious stuff, I'd say that I get the most use
out of my literacy, my body, my Leatherman Wave, my smartphone, and
my internet access. Cocoa-powdered almonds are pretty good, too.
Oh, and kettle bells? Best kind of weight ever. Big chunk of iron
with a handle. What more could you want?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My role in the world, my country's role in the world, ethics,
whether it is best to be morally correct and perish or survive and
compromise one's beliefs, the best ways to both thrive and hold to
one's ethics, what it would take for the world to disarm, what the
odds would be of an alien attack wiping our planet out because we
haven't invested enough money in giant explodey lasers, what can be
done to encourage more renewable energy sources, the best way to
maintain our earth, the kind of people who get through this wall of
text to read this line of text right here without losing interest,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Y'know, I'm no longer sure what a typical Friday night is, but I
don't make any effort to make it more interesting or more boring
than any other night in my life. Maybe it's just reading, maybe
it's heading to the range, maybe it's packing for some excursion,
maybe it's spent with an interesting person, maybe it's wasting a
few hours playing some video game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It is entirely possible that I am addicted to sweet potatoes.
Oh, and I tend to not make the first move.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in chatting or hanging out. Oh, and if we both
are on at the same time, feel free to use the IM function. It's
both handy and dandy in that oh-so-flattering black!
In general, I am interested in intelligent, warm, sex-positive
women with a sense of humor. If you have a hunch that one or more
of those adjectives/descriptions applies to you, I'd probably enjoy
chatting with you.
Oh, I've noticed a strong correlation between "people I enjoy
hanging out with" and "people who listen to Garbage". I would like
to do further research on this front.
