Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm whimsical, so I need a partner who respects and enjoys
silliness. I also have a serious side, and that part of me
appreciates tolerance, support, and kindness. Let's laugh when we
can and comfort each other when we can't.
A little trivia: I grew up near Detroit, Michigan. I collect
clocks. I love roller coasters but haven't been on one in a long
time. I play several musical instruments (poorly). I love movies
and music, and I wish I were a better actor or musician. I have
studied language, linguistics, and typography extensively. I have
the fearlessness and attention span of a Jack Russel terrier.
I’m married to Lilith_nine
, who I met right here on
OkCupid. Yay! We both have experience with open/poly relationships
and want to meet like-minded folk for dating or friendship.
I am playful, talented, and kind.
What I’m doing with my life

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love spicy food and loud music. I miss the kind of chili dogs you
get in Detroit. I'm not a big fan of sweets, but I love pie.
Especially pizza pie, ha!
I also love quirky stuff: music like Cake and Danielle Dax, movies
like Grosse Pointe Blank and The Name of the Rose,
shows like Fringe and Leverage.
Die Hard is the best action movie ever. Lawrence of
Arabia is my favorite epic. Well, that and Ferris Bueller's
Recently I've been listening to Silversun Pickups excessively. And
the Les Miserables soundtrack. And the stuff they play at the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• boxer shorts
• laptop with an Internet connection
• iPhone & iPad
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I would do if I didn't need to worry about money anymore.
Whether I should go to bed or play one more turn. How I'm going to
hang the new cabinets in the dining room. Which new songs I want to
try for karaoke. When I can make time to play my new game / movie /
This could be a long list. I keep a lot of irons in the fire, and I
never stop thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Singing. Playing video games or board games with my friends. Taking
my daughter out to her favorite Italian restaurant. Skating. Going
to the movies, or watching one at home. Chatting online.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I believe that Eeyore is secretly an optimist. He always soldiers
on! He just has a bad habit of announcing all of his problems to
the world. I'm that kind of optimist. It makes a lot of people
think I'm negative, but really I'm just thinking out loud.

All the things on the right are good too: I like edgy humor,

things to overshadow what's really important to me, like generosity
and tolerance and mirth.
