Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I approach every day with a sense of wide-eyed wonder at the beauty
and promise of the world. This is mostly because I don't remember
yesterday very well until I've had a cup of coffee.
I work in Center City and live in Roxborough. The parking is
plentiful, the rent is cheap and it's neat being so close to Valley
Green. I am a recovering beer snob and occasional runner.
I lean pretty far to the left, and while I'm usually pretty quiet
about it I will on rare occasions get frothingly mad about things
like gerrymandering. I promise not to do it in mixed company or in
front of your elderly relatives.
I grew up as an only child with two working parents. I have a half
sister who is a little older, though I won't say exactly how much
in case she ever sees this and kills me. She's produced an amazing
nephew and two wonderful nieces and I just won't shut the hell up
about them and the people they're growing up to be. Sorry, not
sorry or words to that effect.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working for a consumer tech company in Center City. You may
have seen our commercials on TV if you keep really odd hours.
I've been told that it's important to specify that I don't live in
my family's basement. So, I totally have that going for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to say self-deprecation, but I don't think I do it very
well. I also apparently have a very soothing tone of voice, and I
know at least three amusing stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm honestly not sure. I'll ask around. That won't creep anyone out
Update: I am told that people notice that I need to use "downy
wrinkle release" and that I may be laughing at whomever I am
talking to at the moment.
Second update: I am no longer asking people. I don't think that
they have my best interests at heart.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My kindle library is full stuff that didn't quite satisfy, but it's
so hard to pass up self-published things for 99 cents even if you
know they're going to be bad.
Currently reading: some Kindle collection of short stories
My local place makes something called chipotle chicken pizza. It
doesn't sound like it should work, but oh man it does. I can also
cook a mean cheese fondue and tell a charming story about how it
became a family recipe, but goddamn that's a lot of work.
My iTunes library has a bunch of loud and angry music in it. If it
sounds like somebody involved in the creative process desperately
needs therapy, I'll probably enjoy it. I choose not to examine this
statement too closely.
I used to think I had some taste in what I watched, but Netflix has
ruined me. I found myself genuinely upset that they hadn't made a
second season of The Finder or a third season of Life and I'm
relatively sure this means I just like bad television.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my friends, something to read and a way to keep busy.
That last one is vague enough to count for three, isn't it?
I think this is a pretty halfass answer, but I'm damned if I can
really pin down 6 things I couldn't walk away from that aren't
really big generalities.
I would get pretty salty if I didn't have my Brita filter pitcher,
even though it's so old now that any benefits are almost certainly
imaginary. That should maybe go under the 'thing I'm willing to
admit' category, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In an ideal world, what I'm about to say. Most of the time, though,
it's that shit I just said.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am banned for life from an amusement park in Ohio and I am a
Browns fan living in exile here in Philly. There is no causative
relationship between these two things.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You won't judge me for making Hamburger Helper with ground turkey
every now and then.
I tend to like smart, sharp, occasionally sarcastic brunettes. I'm
also a terrible correspondent before I actually meet people.
Anyway, the worst thing that happens is we don't think each other's
jokes are funny and somebody makes a polite excuse to leave after
like half an hour then we go home and text our friends about how
we're going to be single for ever and life is meaningless. Right?
