My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a college grad and burnt out on school. I may eventually take a weekly class once in a while, but that's going to have to wait until I get settled. I'm not particularly adventurous, but the right person can get me to do things I'd have never imagined were even available to do.

I enjoy experimenting with food, but I've only got one recipe that I can actually call my own. I like card games, but not ones played with a typical bicycle deck. I'm talking about lesser-known ones like Chrononauts. I'm not afraid of going to the movies or standup comedy shows alone, but it's much more fun when there's someone with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Started going to the gym and using a calorie counter app. At the time of this update, I've lost 52 pounds and counting. Besides that, I'm working on some creative writing projects. Short stories, a webcomic, and a movie script. Not that I expect the script to actually be produced. I just need to get it out of my head and onto paper. Similarly, I need to learn how to draw - preferably digitally - before the comic comes to fruition.

Career-wise, I'm looking for a different job. Something more fulfilling than selling expensive bathtubs to rich people. Or at least something that utilizes my degree. Also need to figure out whether I should use my vacation time or just liquidate it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting to different situations with people in positions of authority with different personalities (really helped me get through college). I also have a lot of useless trivia stored away.

Besides that, I have a bad case of beginner's luck. I often do things right or win games the first time I try them but screw up royally afterward.

I'd include writing news stories in this section, but I haven't had a lot of opportunities to test that skill since I got out of college.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. Nearly everyone I meet is at least a few inches shorter than me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A: Anything by Stephen King, manga in general, books exposing corruption and wrong-doing, classic sci-fi, and fiction with a lot of wordplay. My favorite childhood book is The Phantom Tollbooth.

B: Millennium Actress. That one actually made me tear up. The first time I cried because of a movie was when I was 4. I think it was a horror movie because of all the blood. But this one was just really emotional and well made. That and anything written/directed by Mel Brooks.

C: Adult Swim, Supernatural, Arrow, and whatever's in my Netflix queue.

D: Pretty much an amalgamation. Gorillaz, Daft Punk, Crash Test Dummies, Weird Al, Pink. I don't enjoy gangsta rap, country, or anything where the band is screaming, though. But aside from those three, I'll listen to virtually anything. My rule of thumb is as long as I can understand the lyrics, it's at least decent.

D: Burritos, although I love most Mexican food. Italian, too. Aside from those two, my favorites are fast, easy, and tasty. I've also been branching out more into seafood, but invertebrates are just something I can't bring myself to eat. Or organ meat. Then there's Japanese. I've been getting more exposure to that over the last year or two.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, a decent bed, I guess that's about it. There's other stuff that I'd really rather not do without, but there's not much I actually need. Cuddling would have to be at the top of the stuff I wouldn't want to live without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the future holds for me professionally and romantically. Also what I want to do in my spare time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the gym. It's a MWF schedule, but I'm flexible about that. If I miss one of those, I can make it up on the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm clumsy to the point of people applauding me for it. I once cut my leg with a chair and needed stitches for it. I later cut the same leg with a desk, although that one wasn't as deep.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think you're someone that can bring out the adventuring side of me, someone that can come up with an idea that we'd both like to try, or something that she's already tried and would like to get me involved in.

Or if you want to. I'm not picky. Bonus points if you're an ESFP or ESTP (Myers-Briggs test).
