My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Congratulations! You’ve made your way to Mark’s OkCupid profile. You’ve found this after slogging through the swamps of Profiles Without Pictures, Profiles For Blatant Misogynists, and Profiles For The Unbearably Dull. You gaze, weary eyed, on what appears to be an identical wall of text, dreading the awful specter of hopelessness that is sure to quickly descend. But what is this? A purposefully obtuse reference to an Italian postmodern novel published in the ’70’s?

You squint irritably at your screen, which is not bright enough, but your phone’s battery isn’t what it used to be. You’ve been telling yourself for months that you should get a new one; perhaps when the iPhone 6 comes out and the price of the 5 S drops.

You imagine what this person must be like. His terrible homage to a long outdated book marks him as a survivor of a college town, perhaps Boston? His commitment to the bit suggests conviction, a sense of purpose, while still illustrating a willingness to buck tradition and convention. An iconoclast, an anarchist of sorts perhaps. A smile flickers across your face, and you think of your own values. Reaffirmed in your beliefs, you hypothesize what this curious fellow must do?

His dating profile is certainly thought out, if ill-advised. He is reaching out, almost yelling it seems to establish some sort of presence. A declaration of existence, a proposal for solidarity shouted into the void.

You prepare yourself to read on, curiously interested while balancing your cautious optimism against the grim realities of reaching out to strangers on the internet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As you skim the stranger's personal, a few lines stand out. He studied communication and marketing at school, while generally disliking the environment of the for-profit world. You nod in agreement; this resonates with the sense of alienation that has come to define those who grew up under the Bush presidency.

He spent a year temping as he looked for full-time work (a struggle that hits close to home, to be–.

Oh wow, that was utterly obnoxious, and went on for far too long. I can't believe you put up with that. Good going, friend!

I just started a gig at a prominent women's health clinic in Mass, which is super rad. I work in Purchasing, which means I help manage the inventory and deliveries for the clinic (ranging from birth control to boxes of dildos. You know, the fundamentals.).

I try to stay active politically and physically, and I've got some great friends who are just the absolute worst enablers when it comes to backsliding into nerd shit. We've been playing Fate, which is all of the fun of D&D without all those pesky, ughh, numbers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking jokes way too far, apparently. Seriously, what kind of asshole does that kind off bullshit on their DATING profile? People are supposed to LIKE me after reading this. Ugh, you just, you are just the worst. Self-summary, you are on the thinnest of ice.

Uhhhh...learning, I guess? Not in like a school way, but in the "Oh, that's a cool topic I didn't know anything about; I guess I need to read a half dozen books about it!" So yeah, get at me about weird history and political theory.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either the strong opinions or the encyclopedic knowledge of useless bullshit. At least one of everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I got super into Hermann Hesse, 'cuz he's just tops (Steppenwolf? Swoons.) Dr. Zhivago by Pasternak is one of the front runners for "Best Modern Retelling of the Odyssey" out there. Dostoyevsky, Nabokov, Blake, and Atwood are all favorites as well.

In terms of non-fiction, I will fanboy about Michael Parenti, David Graeber, Saul Alinsky, and Chris Hedges until the cows come home. And I don't even live with any cows.

For movies, the favorites that come to mind are Wristcutters, Much Ado About Nothing, Cabin In The Woods and so on in that fashion. Old bad horror movies are a science that I consider myself a student of (I've got a list, get on my level).

I've put away a frankly shameful amount of TV in the last year, but I can now say I've watched, like, half of The Wire, so there's that. Big ol' fan of Carnivale, Battlestar Galactica, Misfits, and Rome.

I'm really into folk music (Phil Ochs/Billy Bragg/Anais Mitchell) and punk (Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains/RVIVR /Against Me), and so by their powers combined I got into folkpunk. Frank Turner is my spirit animal.

I've devoted the last year to learning from my family how to cook. It's easy:
1. Take your food that's about to go bad
2. Put it in pasta
3. Cover it in cheese

Well done, you now know how to cook real Italian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. An existential sense of oneness and self worth.
2. Silly hats, all sorts.
3. I don't know, a jacket maybe?
4. A cell-phone telephone.
5. Meta pop culture references.
6. A sixth, cooler thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How neoliberal Capitalism has choked out all of the forces that could oppose it systemically. How to subvert the basic human urge to create hierarchies based on invisible privilege. How to replace my blood with coffee. How there are parallels between the Padishah Emperor of Corrino and the corporate imperialism of the Global South.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to seduce Gaius Baltar so I can install a secret back door protocol in the Twelve Colonies' defense mainframe? You know, perfectly normal, human things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I got "invited-not-to-come-back" to my first preschool because I wouldn't sit on the carpet squares. I mean, we were already on a carpet, what is the school trying to say, they don't think their own carpets are safe for children? And why is it even a big deal? Couldn't everyone else sat on a carpet square and I just sit on the carpet?

Clearly I still am upset about this.
