Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's start with the basics, as it seems some of these things are
apparently not self-obvious:
1) No, I'm not interested in becoming the third person in your
2) I don't really care if you're horny.... I don't need to know
that you're currently masturbating in the first or second message
you send. Sorry.
3) It sucks that you wasted time reading 50 Shades of Grey, but I
have no interest in joining you in the emotionally abusive
relationship you seem to think I'm craving. While I like sex a lot
and think that the power dynamics in a consensual sexual
relationship can be fun to play with, I don't intend on
"submitting" to anyone. Ever. Period.
Now, if you've made it this far and still think I'm an interesting
person, please continue reading for more information about me -
someone who is intelligent, confident, and looking for an adult
Random factoids for your perusal:
1) I have a bizarre obsession with both the Kennedy family and
Superman. Weird, I know
2) I have changed one of my own tires no less than 5 times. Also,
Houston has a lot of potholes.
3) I consider myself quite witty, while my mother classifies it as
being a smart-ass. I can't imagine why.
4) I am no longer allowed to go into kitchen gadget stores without
adult supervision. I am an excellent cook, though.
5) My entire apartment has no color except for a set of red bowls.
It DOES have a lot of grey, black, and metal.
6) I am a buyer for a women's clothing store. My job could very
easily exist as a Bravo reality series.
7) I actually dislocated my shoulder tripping over a gas pump hose.
8) My dream job? A political speech writer. Except that I mostly
like politics in theory and less in practice.
9) I drive a manual transmission. It's just more fun to drive. (I
actually just got a new car, and it's automatic. Sad face.)
10) I am one of maybe 12 people in the world that thinks Apple
products are completely overrated. Give me my Android any day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After spending 15 years in retail running a women's clothing store,
I just started a new job as a senior marketing coordinator.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1-Bon Appetit subscription: I have a ritual when it arrives at the
beginning of every month - pour a glass of wine and read it cover
to cover, marking it with little post it flags for recipes I want
2-Mascara: love it, won't leave the house without it
3-Kindle: keeps an entire library at my fingertips
4-Laughter: anything that's quick and witty I find hysterical -
I've been told that I sound like Cameron Diaz when I laugh
5-Visual inspiration: a striking photograph, clean lines of a
flower, a soft and flowy shirt - really anything that is
interesting to look at
6-Friends: they are my family and we share our lives

...having dinner and drinks with friends.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an intelligent, career-driven man who enjoys new
restaurants, craft beers, and conversation.
You can equally appreciate a fine meal and a cheesy movie. You are
confident, but don't mind making a fool of yourself for a laugh.
You're slow to anger, but quick to stand up for something you
believe in. You know what you want, and aren't afraid to go for it.
