Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an amalgam of things. Part stubborn Irish stoicism (thanks
grandpa), part affable good naturedness. A quiet thinker and a
I prefer making close friends over many friends. I'm doggedly
loyal, fair-minded, and "level headed in a crisis." I am vocal
with, and tenacious in my opinions but am always open to changing
my mind. I like being the guy my friends and family can come to if
they have a problem.
I crack myself up more often than not. I'm snarky and sarcastic. I
smirk more than I smile. I like laughing loudly and uncontrollably.
A good joke will leave me bent 90 degrees, laughing from the
stomach, and totally incapable of speech for a solid minute. I
don't get along too well with people who are easily offended. I
have a twisted sense of humor and was sorely tempted to make my
user name Hello_Clarice.
My mind works in some pretty odd ways and I like to keep quiet and
let it do it's thing then spend an evening talking with friends. I
love traveling, history, art, art history, a good book, cooking
something new, plays, musicals, and exploring the city. And good
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
More to come. As in I'm filling these out, not being existential
with this question.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking/baking. I'm known for my Hot and Sour soup and Red Velvet
Driving. Sure I can't handle a stick but if I can make my neurotic
86 year old grandma feel safe with me behind the wheel I must be
doing something right.
I can always track down those stupid little things that everyone
loses. Remotes, headphones, keys. I'm like a bloodhound.
I'm really good on the phone with service people. Like from your
cell phone or cable company. I get shit done all while being very
Getting away with it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"You have beautiful eyes, do they ever point the same way?"
It's either about my eyes, my forearms or my butt. That's what I
get comments on. Those and something I'm not going to mention in a
profile cause it would be cheesy as fuck.
I've got a beard like a Seurat painting. From a distance it all
looks brown but up close it has about 6 different colored hairs.
It's like the United Nations of beards, or a Benetton Ad.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
How about a typical night out.
You'll find me at few favorite bars where I know the bartender, can
play a few games of pool and spend a night talking with friends
without having to yell. Not always, but that's a typical night out
I'm always excited to try something new though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I got the shit kicked out of me by three teenagers trying to mug me
last year. It was scary, but I also spent the whole time thinking
how bad they were at their job and how funny that was. They kept
asking me "Where's the money" but they never looked in my pockets,
so that's where it stayed. Being kicked in the face really hurts.
