Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty epicurean/humanist in my outlook to life (The
philosophical tradition, as opposed to the current definition of
epicurean). I live and let live but at times I'm pretty
opinionated. (I'm working on that) I enjoy food, art, music, and am
You must be able to tolerate Jackasses, smart asses, jokers and
glib, roguish bastards... I'm none of those, but you should be able
to tolerate them.
My primary defense mechanisms are humor and logic, and what has
been termed "Weird, goofy, sarcasm mixed with cold biting truth." I
don't know what that means but, as improbable as this sounds, I get
that a lot.
I feel things very deeply (despite my cold exterior) and am very
passionate about the things that I believe in, but not so
passionate as to make me inconsiderate of others.
People say I'm the most "... spiritual atheist." they've ever met.
I 1) didn't know there were a lot of spiritual atheists creeping
around 2) what does that mean? "Spiritual" is such a weasel-word.
and 3) Nice is good, lets just stick with nice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finish college (one class to go) while trying not to kill people at
the restaurant that I am a chef at! ;-)
...Oh, and I'm saving the world. (and not for "a rainy day" - you
were thinking it.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Things unmentionable in mixed company... ;-)
Oil painting, drawing, cooking and helping my friends and family
through tough, or not so tough, times.
Puns. I'm a punning linguist.
Calming people. (These are not the droids you're looking for)
Clubbing. (Seals not bars)
Creating awkward and or cringe moments.
Empathy and insight.
Rolls down hill.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, and or my sarcasm?
Ummm, maybe it's my hulking, manly physique?
My maniacal laughter and penchant for wicker furniture.
Did I say sarcasm?
How much of their personal life they divulge to me when we first
meet. This is usually followed by, "You should really be a
therapist, you're a great listener." I guess it's in the blood
(both parents are shrinks) and in the training.
My intensity (now with 15% less insanity, but still the same great
taste you know and love)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
General philosophy, science, psychology and comic books (I guess
they're called graphic novels now) The Mission, Blade Runner,
Choke, Amelie, Love Actually... music, hmmm. Slaid Cleaves, Olive
Street, The Charlatans UK, Dylan, Lennon... really the music, books
and food thing is too numerous to list.
But I'll be your BFF if you turn me on to new material to feed my
insatiable need for escapist, mental masturbation.
Or you could just turn me on. Your call.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My leisure suit. (the "Ladies" dig it)
2) White leather belt and matching wing-tips. (the "ladies" dig
3) My El Comino & eight-track tape deck. (the "gents" respect
4) My aviator sun glasses. (because cool happens, even on the
cloudiest of days)
5) "A Theory of Justice." (because nothing says "wanna' come back
to my place?" like a discussion on "Original Position" vs.
6) Spell Check.
7) Did I say sarcasm?
8) The ability to break arbitrary rules like, oh I dunno' limiting
my choices to just six things that I couldn't live without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1) Belief. How we acquire it, and why we have it. How it benefits
us, and harms us. How people hold on to them regardless of wether
they make sense, are logical or are healthy.
How it is that we're willing to kill and die for them... it all
seems very odd and greatly senseless, but then I'm kind of an
existentialist... really I'm just here for the sex, and verbal
2) If you know anything about neuroplasticity, Marxian conflict
theory (sociological perspective), or anything about Alfred
Bandura, Abraham Maslow and C. W. Mills please let me know, because
I've forgotten all about them. ;-)
3) God! Is my hairline receding?!
4) What does "Enemy" mean on OKcupid?
5) Oh yeah, sex too. I do think about that a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. i.e., or is that e.g., repeating the mantra "must not
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an atheist and a bisexual, which makes me one of the most
untrusted (by recent poll) persons in america... or as some are
want to call it 'merica.
Ideologues piss me off i.e., strong positions tend towards
inflexability and weak reasoning. also see: Zealot.
In other words, if you can't admit when you're wrong and aren't
open to the possibility that others may be "right," then there is
no debate, nor a respect of truth.
(Please note "lowercase" truth as opposed to "uppercase" Truth.
People who believe in the uppercase variety scare the bejeesus out
of me with their little, nubby fingers, and their sycophantic,
slavish, and often times dehumanizing zeal)
Veritas Sine Timore, bitches!
Holy Blue Jesus in a side car! Is that a rant from Hell or what?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1) You can see through my cleverly crafted facade, are willing to
get to know me, deeply and in a meaningful way... or just make hot
sloppy at an AA meeting.
2) You think that it's alright to kiss a nun, just as long as you
don't get into the habit.
3) You want to have a little fun, both physically and mentally, but
aren't interested in anything beyond "friends with benefits" (God,
that's so very cliche) then I'm your man.
4) You have an affinity for dairy products, beer and BBQ or just
because you think I'm too glib for my own good, then write, I won't
bite, it's easy, I'm not a grammar Nazi, you know you wanna'!
C'mon, talking is fun, and friends improve overall health and
well-being... unless they're toxic, psychic vampires, hungrily
lusting for new giving people to feed off of... Okay, if you're a
psychic vampire then please don't contact me.
4a) Did I mention Sarcasm?
Evil Sub-Genius out.
