My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a world-renowned adventurer and philanthropist. When I'm not making significant contributions to cutting edge scientific literature, I like to save children from burning buildings and single-handedly prevent the extinction of obscure invertebrate species. Since I was raised by a pack of arctic wolves, I possess extraordinary powers of animal empathy and I'm currently in the final stages of being appointed humanity's official ambassador to small, furry woodland creatures everywhere.

Seriously though, I am unlike any person you have ever met. I'm a walking contradiction. I'm warm and cold, hard and soft, loyal and independent, studious and wild, responsible and spontaneous. In high school, I was defiant and incorrigible, grew long hair, rebelled against authority, but still graduated valedictorian. I walked away from scholarships in order to drop out of society, live without money and travel the country, sleeping in national forests and on beaches. When I went back to college, it was because I wanted to, not because society expected it of me. I have a lot of great stories, but won't tell some of them until I know you very, very well. I have no regrets and would not change a thing.

The "unexamined life is not worth living" and my past adventures form significant parts of my self-identity, contributing to the comfort I now have with who I am and where I'm going. However, there is still a fire burning inside me, even if I am now much better at keeping it at bay. I let it out when I want, but it does not consume me.

I am honest, intelligent, and adventurous.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
If I were to start extolling the virtues of my character and listing off what I believe to be my many talents and greatest achievements, wouldn't I just sound like an irritating blowhard? On the other hand, deliberately creating an illusion of false humility would be no better. I would rather let my actions speak for themselves, so you should form your own answer to this question. I'll just say that I'm really good at defying expectations and challenging preconceptions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's impossible not to notice the hoard of paparazzi feebly attempting to catch me being uncouth or lacking in tact. Alas, if only they understood the futility of their mission! Conversely, people certainly do _not_ notice my ability to turn invisible, but I love to watch them jump when I suddenly appear out of thin air!

I am very passionate about music. I was a DJ at my college radio station and played mostly trance, drum & bass, jungle, and other types of electronic music. I have an extremely eclectic taste. If you love music, then there are probably many preferences that we share. However, I can almost guarantee that I will like something you abhor. I always try to keep an open mind and seek to discover the value in all musical forms. Don't be surprised if I switch from classic rock to bluegrass to heavy metal, all in one sitting.

I love most kinds of food, but I guess I would list French, Thai and Sushi as my favorites. Keep your pickles and watermelons away from me!

As far as I am concerned, the greatest movie of all time is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I watch virtually zero television. I recently went to a "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" watch party, but I don't remember when I last watched a show before that ... it was probably at least 3 months ago. There are just so many other things to do and everything is higher on my list than TV. I do occasionally watch movies, but haven't in a while.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Polka, Zambonis, and Flying Purple People Eaters.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a "typical" Friday night implies a level of banality I strive to avoid. Variety is the spice of life. I enjoy dining out, attending concerts, exploring new places, playing board games, watching movies, reading, creating art, climbing trees, howling at the moon, and many other things.

I would enjoy a partner with whom to travel the world, but I think that with the right woman, I would be content going nowhere and doing nothing special, even if that means 'typical' Friday nights.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you have a sense of humor, value honesty, and don't mind the occasional Oxford comma. You should also message me if you are a nerd, geek, or would like to discuss the definitions of those terms.
