Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since it's been more than six years since I've updated this, I
think it's time to rewrite it.
I'm an outdoorsy nerd looking for the same. I'm generally cheerful
person and I like to look on the bright side.
I grew up as the child of a diplomat. My father is American of
Scottish decent and my mother is Croatian. I live overseas until my
father retired. English is my third language (Serbo-Croatian is my
first and Polish was my second).
I enjoy hiking, kayaking, video games, cooking, working out, lively
but not personal political debate, opera, Dungeon and Dragons (and
other tabletop RPGs) and just cuddling on the couch and watching
TV. I go to the renfair multiple times a year, in costume. I own a
fairly large number of strategy board and card games. I love to
travel and I want to see as much of the world as possible before I
I don't need someone who shares all my interests, but I do need
someone who won't make fun of me for it.
Ultimately, I'm looking for someone to grow old with, but for the
time being I'm planning on dating around for a while.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working a stable if slightly boring job for a software company
and hoping someday to go back to school. I love to travel.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Memorizing things, mostly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very pale and a little under weight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Carl Sagan's The Demon Haunted World. Reading it was a formative
experience for me.
Lately, I've been watching Orphan Black, Game of Throne, and
Sherlock. All of these shows are brilliant. I'll also happily watch
any of the DC animated movies and I was really sad when Young
Justice was canceled (don't judge). There's also a particular early
90s Canadian vampire TV show that I love. Bonus points if you can
Music wise, I have a thing for Trip Hop. Mezzanine by Massive
Attack is probably my favorite album. I listen to all kinds of
things, though and I'll happily give most music a try.
As for food, there's very few things I won't eat. I don't like
melon, cheesecake, or octopus. I won't eat anything's brains, eye,
or genitals unless it's something small enough that you eat the
whole creature like a tiny fish, or a fried cricket. I will totally
eat bugs. I'm pretty adventurous with food, and I'd like to date
someone who is as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't know... booze? Just kidding.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying up very late while hanging out with friends and
drinking/eating out/playing Dungeons and Dragons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a genetic disorder.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
