Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Matt. I do a little of a lot of stuff, you might say I'm
a jack of all trades (though I'm really more like a ten of most
trades) :) . I have a passion for problem solving and I'm a bit of
an information sponge. Music, history, physics, psychology,
machinery, computer programming, and everything inbetween.
I'm also looking to explore more and go on more adventures. I'm
setting a goal to do a bike tour in the spring.
I'm doing a bit of a reset on my life right now, so I moved back to
my home town for a little while to figure out my next step. I'll
probably be here until around March and I'd like to make a few
friends while I'm here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Job wise, I've been pedicabbing for the last few years but I
recently got a 9 to 5 again. I've been getting really into
electronics and I'm working on some related projects. If you know
what an Arduino is, I'd like to have coffee with you... even if you
hate it. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at a lot of completely useless things and some very
Eating lots of food without gaining any weight, including whole
loaves of sourdough bread and brown cow yogurt by the quart.
Fixing things or making something I need from random stuff around
the house. I take way to much joy in that.
Thinking OKC is judging me;
"Change your username
Maybe Mattsprofile was a mistake? Change your username permanently
without creating a new account". I don't try to make you feel self
conscious about your name, Okcupid.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
It's really hard to nail down a favorite book, movie, or TV show.
It would be hard to compare Terry Pratchett to Orson Scott Card (I
hate the author, but Ender's Game was brilliant, I didn't see the
movie). As for food... I like food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Above all else, I could never do without my cerebral cortex. It's
my most prized possession. Sure if it were damaged I might still be
able to live, but I really like my conscious thought and the things
it allows me to see and do.
After that it's air (I really, really like air)
And the ability to effect the world around me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food and how everything is better with sourdough
The effects of removing gender from language
How to convey tone in a purely text format.
*"But even ordinary books are dangerous….A man sits in some museum
and writes a harmless book about political economy and suddenly
thousands of people who haven’t even read it are dying because the
ones who did haven’t got the joke."
Why more women don't send the first message on okcupid.
Anything that interests me (a whole lot of stuff)
There's also a new development that's puzzling me; why do so many
people with percents of zero to ten look at my page? How do they
even come across it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with friends or hanging out at my house.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to.
You want someone who's not a douche to spend some time with.
You are awesome.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
