Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost, many girls on this site end with something like
"Have something better to say than, 'Hi'". I want to say that just
"Hi" is fine for me. I'll read your profile, and if I'm intrigued,
I'll say "Hi" back. I've spent too much time thoughtfully crafting
messages that are completely ignored. Literally: one was a video
message where I sang and played guitar, and I could tell from the
view count on youtube that it was not watched despite the message
Secondly, I, like everyone, have both qualities and quirks. So in
the interest of being upfront and honest (I apologize for the

- I'm a snuggler
- I don't like food. I really only eat out of necessity, and

- I don't like to drink alcohol (particularly beer). I hate
hangovers and I can have fun without drinking, but as a social
courtesy I will sip hard cider at about half the rate of a normal
drinker. Tequila is my hard liquor of choice.
- I have an acute sense of whimsy
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

- I once overheard Michael Kors refuse Heidi Klum's invitation to
dance, so I said "Here Michael, let me show you how it's done" and
I waltzed Heidi around the stage for a good 5 minutes.
- I once belonged to a softball team in Queens. The last game I
meant to play before moving to Pittsburgh, I broke my humerus while
trying to throw a runner out at first after unexpectedly catching a
line drive. I now have 2 plates and 20 screws in my right arm
- I once was assigned to a film crew to shoot a group of wanna-be
models in a limousine, but I was the sound guy hidden in the back
of the limo covered with stuffed animals and I was especially
gassy, so I joyfully and anonymously hotboxed the limo for their
entire ride home while they were being filmed for national
television. Unfortunately, it didn't make the episode
