Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Thomas Charles Roeser.
I like all three of those names, just not in that order.
I used to weigh 400 pounds. I now weigh 220 pounds. I'm pretty
proud of it.
I've spent most of my life in desperate search of things that hold

I'm a classic(see also:hopeless) romantic.
I have really started to hate cellphones. Nobody looks at anyone
I grew up in a very small redneck town, you know, like, in the

holding it so that people will stop trying to make me drink.
I deal poorly with absolutes. Shades of grey y'all, though not 50
of them, ever.
I am extremely competitive, I love winning, but I love competing
more than anything.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a nerd at heart, but I hide it well.
I am pretty good at table tennis. At the competitive level I'm
slightly above average and improving. To garage players or other
people who don't really play(no offense), the stuff I can do will
look fucking crazy.
No, I will not let you win, should you challenge me, but I won't be
mean and smash every ball in your face either.
I can write pretty well, but I don't do much to cultivate it. I
I'm funny, resignedly eccentric, and empathetic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My curly curly curls
I have a good smile and by some accounts nice eyebrows, which I
didn't know was a thing.
I'm tall. But it's normal tall. Maybe if I had better posture.
Gonna work on that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

On the Road
The Road (I really like roads)
The Malazan Book of the Fallen

I have a weakness for the occasional comic book, this used to be
Once Upon a Time in the West

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well I'd like to think I am, at least.
Realistically, playing in a tournament, then smoking and stream of
consciousness writing, which I just interrupted to check myself on
my own profile.
I really have learned to enjoy being by myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've seen all of Sex and the City.
Like, all of it.
I thought I was going through some crazy shit until I listened to
tig notaro's standup "live".

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Is the silence deafening, or comforting?
I don't know how I feel about dating anymore, at least online
dating in particular. I think that with such a high volume of
potential dates, expectations become unreasonably high. People seem
to want all the answers right away, and the progression moves along
