Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born under the sign of the water bearer, Aquarius, which
according to the internet means:
"Aquarians are generally very clever, witty, and intellectual. They
value progress and frankness. It's difficult to throw Aquarians for
a loop—they're generally on top of things."
Which is all very flattering and I think describes me to a T, but
my biology professor assures me it's nonsense, and insists that I'm
actually the product of several hundreds of thousands of years of
evolution (just counting the hominids of course); a complex amalgam
of all those who had sex and bore children before me.
Which would all be well and good if I was in the same family as the
majestic horse, fierce lion, or noble eagle, but I'm closer to an
orangutan, which is less flattering.
I will admit we both have a truly striking red/orange hue, and the
proud orangutan is quite smart, strong, mates with one partner for
life, and is completely vegan, which is difficult to do and
admirable. I will let you know that I have all but one one of those
listed traits in common with my primate cousin, but I'm not saying
Anyway, evolution has seen fit to equip me with a love of wine and
whiskey, a fondness for cheeses that smell vaguely of nuts and
feet, a sense of humor as dry as burnt toast, a baritone voice
which expresses only that single tone, and a face which has way too
much expression as a counterpoint to my aforementioned voice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I earned my BA in Philosophy, so naturally I'm a waiter. I'm
going back to school for computer related stuff though, so
hopefully I'll be changing careers in the not-so-distant future.
I'm pretty new to the area, having moved from SoCal a year ago, so
I'm really just enjoying exploring the bay area.
I'm also trying not to eat terrestrial vertebrates at the moment
and ride my bike rather than my car. When in Rome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hostage negotiations. It's a weird talent, but I'm the best, or so
I've been told.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) A quality bed- sleep is very important
2) A knife- it really comes in handy in so many situations
3) Jeans- who doesn't appreciate a good pair of jeans
4) A truly comfortable chair or sofa- my idea of hell is going to a
party where there aren't enough chairs
5)Fire- an oldie but a goodie, and I like it to both cook my food
and metaphorically flavor my food i.e. I like it spicy!
6) Friends, family, laughter, love, kittens, and butterfly kisses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I'd like to go and what I'd like to eat.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't whistle and it really bothers me, because I don't really
like humming. Instead, I quietly sing "do, do, do" in rhythm to
whatever song is in my head. True story.

If I've successfully piqued your interest, and honesty, intimacy,
and mindfulness are of particular value to you. Let's walk and talk
and just be people getting to know one another. Whatever blossoms,
blossoms, I always say.* It might be a rose. It might be an
avocado. They're both great.
*I've never actually said this, but I'm going to start, so by the
time you read this, It may technically be true.
