Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there okcupid. I remember you. I found my last boyfriend on
you. You've been pretty good to me. But, you know- I'm not really
in the market for another, I don't think. Then, they do say love
comes to those who aren't looking- but seriously, love? Who has the
time?! Oh- you want my elevator pitch. Ok. I'm a recently-graduate
MBA working as a consultant from the rust belt who is actually not
a douchebag. Not saying all MBAs are douchebags, but- well, the
ones who are aren't exactly upset by that fact. They generally take
pride in it. I guess, in a nutshell- I am a renaissance man. I
know- what a douche! But really, I have wild and varied interests,
from astrophysics, to linguistics, to comic books, to the lives and
times of failing retailers. Also my ancestors foretold the
apocalypse. There's a cave named after them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working way too much for my own good. Trying to reintegrate into
society after vanishing from the world to get my MBA and start a
new job. Wait- what?! Stuff happens out there? I almost forgot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making obscenely creative and somewhat psychotic powerpoint
presentations. Questioning the meaning of life. Juggling credit
cards (EDIT 2015 - NOW PAID OFF OMG). Thinking about the end of the
world. Critiquing red velvet cake.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books are for people without broadband. Kidding! (kind of) I love
sci-fi. I won't apologize for it. Deal with it. Three books you
should read: Accelerando by Charles Stross. The Light of Other Days
by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter, and Hyperion by Dan
Simmons. Oh, and for good measure throw in The Integral Trees by
Larry Niven. Movies- eh, who needs em. I like to watch em once.
Shows- oh lord I love RuPaul's Drag Race so much it's sick. Music-
Tori Amos, of course, and Madonna, the Gaga, and all that hipster
stuff like Of Montreal. Whatevs. Food- all of it, except for
anything with an exoskeleton or anything pickled.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My best friend Katie, who is like the reason I'm who I am. 2.
Cynicism (or you can call it healthy skepticism if that makes you
more comfortable). 3. Documentaries about the Universe. 4. The
internets. 5. Coffee. 6. Coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Particle physics. Why I'm so awkward. Why I think so much about how
awkward I am. How to get away with yet more sleep. What the hell
Jean Grey ever could have seen in Cyclops. How to justify eating
more Top Pot donuts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thankful that I'm not one of those people who feels like a loser
for not going out on a Friday night, while sitting at home alone
eating snacks and watching reruns of the X-Files.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been trying to quit diet cola for the better part of two
decades. Also that I have largely given up.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
My profile is appealing- which would be surprising, because it's
pretty ridic. Also you don't mind talking to someone who uses the
word ridic. Also you don't mind the fact that I'm really not
interested in being in a "committed" relationship- but that I'm
open to negotiations.
Also apologies for the Frankenprofile- I just updated it but didn't
feel like completely rewriting it.
Oh yeah! One other thing you should know about me: I'm into casual
cuddling. That means that 1. I tend to get affectionate early but
2. it doesn't mean I want us to adopt a dog and wear matching
sweaters. Or whatever it is that the gays do these days.
