Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm also not quite Ted. But there are similarities.
So, I'm (still) looking for the love of my life. Much like someone
you might well be familiar with, I grew up in an eastern suburb of
Cleveland; I love the Indians and can't get past the whole LeBron
thing; I have a technical job I'm pretty good at but is pretty
boring; and I'm really pretty darn bad at dating. I'm frankly
sometimes a bit pretentious; correcting things other people might
say or do, but I'm also kindhearted and really don't think that
much of myself. I have this habit of doing ridiculous, over-the-top
romantic gestures and telling embarrassing stories that last way
You'll have to be okay with the fact that one of my best friends is
a woman who I had a relationship with years ago that ended very
badly for me... It hurt; so much I was ready to leave town for
good, but she let me know how much my friendship meant to her, and
she worked to prove it... we both tried hard to get past the pain
and awkwardness. It took awhile, but it got to the point that she
moved in to my apartment and lived with me for a while at a
difficult time in her life... and we stayed just friends. Anyway,
she's married now, so it's okay.
My ideal girl likes old movies. She may or may not play bass
guitar, but a love of music is always a plus. She probably has a
few quirks here and there... she's almost certainly navigated just
as bumpy a road getting here as anyone has with a kind heart
intact; otherwise I don't know how she'd learn to put up with my
never-ending in-jokes, obscure references, and wincingly mistimed
emotional honesty and intensity.
My parents are divorced, tho it happened after I'd grown up and
moved out. Still, it made me realize how important choosing the
right person is. Perhaps that's made me overly choosy... While I've
met some very nice girls who seemed to like me very much and
thought I was nice too, it was pretty clear to me that none of them
were my Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz. And the very few of them who
I thought for a time might be, in the end it seems weren't meant to
And so I've always wanted a family, yet here I am, the last of my
friends still unmarried. It hasn't helped that occasionally I've
spent way too much time chasing the unattainable... at least
unattainable at the time I was chasing. You might say I have
terrible timing. Or I try to force the emotional side of things
along too fast. I don't know. I just keep putting myself in
ridiculous situations and hoping that fate will find a way. It
hasn't worked much thus far... but it only has to work once,
Sometimes I do have my moments of doubt. Recently I distracted
myself for a bit fixing up a new place I bought, but I'm pretty
much done with that, so maybe it's time to start trying again...
It's tough going sometimes, but I still think that girl with the
yellow umbrella is out there somewhere for me.
No, I'm not a sitcom character, though it feels that way sometimes.
And hopefully the end of one story can be the start of the real

I like most kinds of food. Chinese (Szechuan style especially),
Japanese, Italian, American (whatever that means). I've grown to

I have what many people might consider to be rather outdated and
unrealistic opinions about having sex outside of marriage.
And I live accordingly. Which isn't always the easiest thing in the
world. But in the end it's always turned out to be the right
decision. Though I suppose it also depends on what your definition

Oh, and if you don't type 'your' when you mean "you're," wow, that
would be awesome! It bothers me just as much.
