Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The dreaded self-summary! Can't someone make an app to write this
thing for me?
I think online dating ends up giving you a lot of insight into who
you are and what you are looking for in another person. So my
insights thus far (in list form since run on paragraphs are
Possibly because of my career, I am mainly an extrovert and
gravitate toward people who can easily talk to a new person rather
than someone who takes a lot of time to get comfortable.
I adore my career and have put a lot of work into it and like
meeting people who are excited about their fields. That doesn't
have to translate into being uber successful or even settled into
the job you will stay in for the next decade since I have
definitely made changes in mine.
Being outdoors and active is pretty important to me. All that
effort I put into bar-hopping in my twenties had to go somewhere
after all. That said, I have little natural athletic ability and
kinda suck at most of the things I take up whether it be cycling,
boxing, etc. Quite honestly, even yoga kicks my ass.
And finally, I work with animals on a daily basis so people who are
fellow animal lovers and don't list what species they dislike are
probably my best matches. But you can dislike alpacas. They're mean
bastards and always tried to bite me in school.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting paid to "medically" pet kitties and puppies all day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving "go away" looks to homeless dudes who try to ask me out on
the 22 bus. I'm holding out for a little better.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look very Slavic. If that's your thing then great. If not... then
that sucks for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As far as movies, I have a weakness for anything indie, foreign, or
violent. That and gory horror. My parents never fully understood
American culture and that you were supposed to censor what kids
watched on TV. Therefore, they thought nothing of letting me watch
slasher flicks every Saturday night on cable when I was still in
I generally go for modern fiction that is recommended by friends.
Last great new author I read is Zadie Smith.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sad as it is to admit, my gym. I love it. It has a wine bar.
Furries (animals not costume people)
Game downloads on my iPad.
Retirement savings (I have squirrel tendencies)
My super cool road bike
My less super cool French Horn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to avoid reading medical journals for work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends. If I'm working the next day, I'm in bed with my latest
game app obsession. If I'm not, usually out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Four way stops continue to terrify me. I always lose track of who
arrived first and end up doing manic hand waves and "I'm sorry"
I don't like The Beatles.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind directness. I have a big respect for kind honesty in
dating and if I'm not interested I will let you know but if I like
you, I'll also let you know.
You are more interested in getting to know a person than collecting
first dates. The thrill of seeing how many dates I can get has long
worn off and I like most people better as I know them more not
