Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been on this site for...well, too long. I typically don't pay
much attention to it, but at the moment (August 2013) I think I'm
going to invest a little more energy. It would be nice to actually
meet someone. Preferably not a serial dater who's just looking for
free meals from as many men as possible (yes, that's happened to me
a few times.)
Wait - I'm supposed to be telling you about myself, aren't I? To
hell with that. I expect you've read plenty of profiles, and a lot
of them sound like a broken record. (Except, of course, that
there's no actual sound...I'm being metaphorical, after all.) "I
love to travel. I believe in balance. I'm looking for adventure.
I'm as comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt as I am in a suit. Yada,
yada, bullshit, bullshit." I don't think you can really learn much
of value from someone's vague description of him or herself.
You can learn quite a lot about who someone really is when they're
drunk. Or on really good meds. Or if it's me, you just ask.
I suppose I should say something about myself, just a formality.
Let's see...I'm a "nice guy." I'm slow to anger. I'm very musical
and creative, but most of my life revolves around computers. I use
both sides of my brain. I love the rain, so long as I can watch and
listen to it from a warm, dry place. Unless it's summer, in which
case I prefer a cool, dry place. I love my Mom and my sisters. My
Dad was my best friend. My friends are exceptional human beings,
and I wish we all had more time to spend with each other. And that
we all lived in the same city. That's probably enough for now.
Should I go back and edit? I suppose not. Accept my flaws. I have
them, like everyone else.
Happy hunting, people!

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to accomplish my goals / achieve my dreams. And what I'm going

Think You Can Dance." War. Peace. Whether I'll ever read "War and

cookies for old ladies I recently rescued from muggers. It's an
endless cycle. We've all been there.
