Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well, I contradict myself.
I am large; I contain multitudes.
In my case, those multitudes include a mad scientist, a starving
artist, a socialist and a libertarian.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moved back to Columbus in December 2012...didn't expect to miss it
so much when I left.
My years of partying are behind me so I am trying to continually
take responsibility and improve my lot in life--part of that is
finding and/or making time for the great people in my life.
A few years back I started working in internet marketing and web
design, that keeps me busy and I like that the work is challenging,
creative, analytical and varied.
I have a strong interest in human rights (equality, justice, etc.)
so I am always interested in related pursuits; once I have my work
situation settled and have more free time I plan to write about it,
maybe volunteer, and just get involved however possible in trying
to make the world a better place.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am visual so I am good at art, photography, hopefully web
I am an excellent swimmer.
I am pretty good at Spades, Euchre, Trivial Pursuit, Taboo, and
laughing at things in movies that no one else finds funny...
Over-analyzing things, skiing and snowboarding, starting campfires.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure, maybe that I seem to have some sort of accent that
they can't quite place (I moved around a lot as a kid).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The artist in me has crafted this profile to
be—hopefully—intriguing and to represent my desire for new and wide
That said, the last book I read for pleasure was a year ago; I just
don't have time.
I love movie nights on the couch with a lover. So if we have
compatible taste in TV and movies, it will probably go along way
towards long-term compatibility.
I like things that make me think, wonder, feel like I'm not
alone/crazy, and/or see things in a new light:
Some books I enjoyed:
"Life As We Do Not Know It" (non-fiction about life: what it is,
what it needs, where else it might exist in the solar system)
"A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" (essays by David
I read more non-fiction than fiction; I enjoyed Freakonomics and
Sperm Wars immensely.
My favorite author might be J.D. Salinger…(or Hemingway…or
As for movies, you can't really go wrong with Quentin Tarantino,
also a big fan of David Fincher, David Lynch, Stanley
I don't care much for TV but when I have the remote rest assured
I'll at least see what's on Discovery, Nat. Geo, and History. I
enjoy Seinfeld and Robot Chicken whenever possible.
Contemporary stuff you've probably heard of?
The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Beck, DangerMouse/Gnarls
Barkely, Sublime…and, of course, all the usual smacked-out
Stuff most haven't heard of:
I like everything cEVIN kEY has ever done.
"Bad Music for Bad People."
As for food, I am an omnivore but logically, philosophically, and
morally would like to move closer to vegetarian.
Italian, Mexican, sushi, (the occasional) steak, pizza, and
chocolate and more.
I don't currently act on it but I have a strong interest in
sustainable and cruelty-free food production including organic,
local, and self-produced foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
[*See Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs ]
I'm not very materialistic but I really value my friends and the
Internet is a good way to keep in touch...letters work too but
letter-writing is a dying art.
It's important to me to have things I like (living in a decent part
of town, clothes and shoes that I feel fit my personality, etc.)
but I'm not much of one for brands.
I could never do without some fun and passion in my life.
And I'd be heart-broken if I ended up without a beautiful woman
who'd wear corsets, garters or other lingerie de temps en
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything...I think more about how things should be than how they
are, if that tells you anything.
Nature vs. nurture.
Whether I might be happier if I just moved to some liberal,
socialist, European country and never came back.
How to best get the things I want (and what those 'things'
When living in another state I had another profile, but there are
inconsistencies between the two that I find surprising like
'genius' vs. 'advanced' on the commonly confused vocabulary test
and other things that shouldn't be mood dependent. I find that
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your profile is reasonably accurate.
You're ht/wt proportionate. You made it this far.
You struggled with the profile questions that ask if you
are 'looking for sex or love.' Just to clarify, it'd be
really cool if I could find both.
I view people holistically so if something on my profile excludes
you but we are otherwise a good match I won't rule you out.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Who are you looking for?
