Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some fun facts, just to keep it interesting:
I hold three passports but they all list the same name so I'm
qualified to be Jason Bourne. I have crossed state and
international lines on foot, as well as the equator and prime
meridian. I think I have done cartwheels in every office I've
worked in at one point or another. I have weird prophetic dreams or
premonitions sometimes, most recently, I dreamed that a friend from
work told me that the receptionist at work was pregnant and a week
later I found out that she actually was.

On the more personal level, I strive for a semi-constant level of
wit but my sarcasm doesn't always make it to that level. I always

friends, coworkers and significant others. A thoughtful action or
help when I'm stressed means so much more to me than an expensive

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Nick Hornby, David Sedaris and romantic comedies, both in
film and book form.
Some current favorites on TV include: How I Met Your Mother, The
Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and of course, I usually end my
weeknights with Jon and Stephen.
I love The West Wing and The Gilmore Girls for the same reason-
intelligent, quick, witty dialogue.
I don't claim that this is an exhaustive list nor am I suggesting
that all of these are high caliber films, just things I like.
Most of John Hughes and Kevin Smith's movies
The Constant Gardener
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Good Morning Vietnam
I have gone well out of my way to see Jump, Little Children and
Weezer live- the only two bands I have seen perform more than once.
Otherwise I enjoy listening to Green Day, Ben Folds, Less Than
Jake, Save Ferris. I guess my musical tastes are mostly in the alt
rock and ska veins and I'm a total sucker for bands with a cello
and/or a horn section. I miss the old 104.9 which became "La
Romantica, Mexican love ballads" sometime while I was in college,
briefly reemerged at 92.3 FM and sadly, that has now become what I
think are Mandarin Chinese love songs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
