Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So you know how some guys put on this tough exterior to keep people
at bay so nobody hurts the sensitive guy inside? I'm kind of the
opposite. My exterior is a bit of a clown and a bit of a teddy
bear. Beneath that is a more serious, spiritual person of great
passions and great curiosity.
I love the strange and the macabre. If you enjoy the Sandman, the
Addams Family, and halloween, we're probably on the same
I am quirky, nerdy, and good-natured, and I like to think of myself
as a Gomez looking for his Morticia. Sadly, I'm not really as suave
as that, but it's good to have goals, right?
If it matters to you, I'm ISTP, 420-friendly (but only occasional
myself), an OSR hobbyist, and kind of a hippie/goth/punk hybrid.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last year or so, I've taken a break from dating, and that's
been good for me. I've been spending more time with my friends and
my hobbies. Right now I'm dabbling with tabletop game design and
getting back into the habit of writing.
More broadly, I'm still on my journey of self-discovery, finding
the person I want to be and working toward being that guy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I draw and write pretty well (but I have trouble with plot, which
is annoying). I also make some pretty amazing pancakes!
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm told it's my dimples, or possibly my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like vintage sword & sorcery writers like Robert E.
Howard, Fritz Leiber, Leigh Brackett, and Karl Edward Wagner. I
like some mindbending scifi like Philip K. Dick's VALIS. I like
just about anything written by Greg Rucka, Jen Van Meter, or Sara
Movies: Kind of a fantasy/scifi nerd, so things like Legend,
Labyrinth, and Willow are always favorites. Also fond of more
surreal storytelling, like Scott Pilgrim, L.A. Story, and Lost
Highway. I like horror movies, but most of them are pretty
disappointing. I'm pretty into movies and have a fairly extensive
Shows: There's so much good stuff right now... Game of Thrones,
American Horror Story, Constantine... And then there's all these
great shows that are already done, like Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks,
Spaced, Farscape... Yay for good shows!
Music: My taste is pretty broad, leaning mostly toward the various
descendants of rock music. Not so much pop or country. I've only
recently developed an appreciation for rap. Some specific favorites
include Tricky, Joy Division, Violent Femmes, Rasputina, and the
Foods: Spaghetti, buffalo wings, New York-style pizza, and
breakfast after midnight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Daydreams. Human behavior. Stories I'll probably never get around
to writing. Tabletop games, and the design of such. Society's ills.
Imaginary religions. Whether time has its own geometry.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, Fridays have been my night to myself. Usually that means
unwinding with a book, a movie, or something on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Secretly, I'm actually pretty shy. I hide it fairly well in casual
conversation, but it gets inconvenient sometimes.
