Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm from 'DC' like everyone is, by which I mean that I'm from
Maryland. I now live in Virginia about 1/2 hour from where I grew
I have really wide and varied interests and they are growing all
the time. I love to learn and the library is one of my favorite
places. Some of my interests are: space, writing,
criminology/forensics and mycology. Life is more fun, the more you
I am also asexual. I don't experience sexual attraction like most
people. Please ask or research if you are unfamiliar with
I do desire companionship and I love physical affection and
cuddling, I just don't want sex.* I'm not damaged or traumatized,
so I'm not looking for anyone to change or "fix" me. I am happy the
way I am.
I am interested in men for a dating relationship, but I also would
love to meet new people, regardless of gender for friendship and
I'm basically looking for a man to go to the movies and to museums
with, to have dinner with and to sit on the couch and snuggle with.
I want all the fun couple stuff of dating, including physical
affection and other intimacies, just no sex.
Also, for those hesitant or wondering about my kid, she's 15, in
high school and very independent. No worries about finding a
babysitter or anything of that sort there.
*I am not totally ruling out sex, I know this seems contrary to
asexuality, but it is not. There are variations in asexuality just
like in any sexuality. For me, there would have to be an intense
trust for me to ever enter an intimate relationship with anyone and
even then sex would be rare.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading, learning. Playing dumb games on my phone. Going out with
friends and staying home watching documentaries.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting things down from high places. Trivia games. Finding good
parking. Untangling knots. Being a loyal friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm tall! But let me say that I have no height preferences. If
it doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother me.

Books: I worked at a bookstore for 10 years, so I LOVE books and
reading. I've read a set of encyclopedias and an almanac. I read
most any genre as long as the subject is compelling.
I'm also a big hockey fan and actually know the rules of the
I have also been to all the art museums in DC more than once and
love them all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmm, if I'm limiting this to things that are actually objects and
not people or conceptual ideas, then my six things are:
A pen and paper
My stuffalo (stuffed buffalo)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. My goals. Books, music. That damn bee in the X-Files
movie. How space wants to kill us all. If there's a shark in the
pool. The weather in California. What's wrong with the Caps and why
Ovechkin can't backcheck.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home, or at my best friend's house cuddling her new baby.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not afraid of sharks in the ocean, but I am scared that there
might be sharks in the pool. Yes, I realize this is ridiculous. But
so is this prompt.
