Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am professionally trained as a librarian (that's true, but still
sort of a joke), but my passion is for creative projects, which
mostly concerns my writing at the moment (but music, visual art,
and even acting are all in there somewhere). I am open to meeting
all sorts of new people, and we can just figure out as we go what
sort of categories to put each other into.
I'm poly, I guess. At least that's what my poly meet-up group tells
me, haha. Well, I am in one long-term relationship, which is great,
but I have so many interests, find so many things interesting, and
have so much worth sharing that it makes sense to me to date more
than one person? I have been in several year-plus romantic
relationships while maintaining a constant one with a singular
partner. Not everyone is built for that, and I'm also not against
keeping things simple. I'm open to all sorts of possibilities that
work for both me and prospective dating partners.
I like outdoor activities, whether that's hiking, riding my bike
just to explore, playing sports or running, chilling at the beach,
or relaxing in a hammock. Well, the previous sentence depends upon
the relative humidity and inherent bugginess of the area. I try to
avoid mosquito-infested quagmires.
I would say I'm a good listener and a great friend -- I'm very
loyal, and genuinely enjoy lending a helping hand when I can. I am
pretty open about discussing things, and while my conversational
boldness may surprise some, I'm not intentionally trying to offend
anyone. I am one of three brothers, all with philosophy
backgrounds, so what may sound like an actual argument to others
may only be a friendly "discussion" from my perspective.
Oh, I also really like playing poker, so if anyone wants to invite
me to a game, I'd be grateful :) That's something I've missed since
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am usually working on several creative projects, including
fantasy novels. There will always be more to be done. I have
participated in NaNoWriMo for four years now, and sincerely plan on
publishing something in 2015.
I work at the public library and enjoy my job tremendously -- well,
most of the time.
I'm trying to seize life and squeeze all the juicy goodness out of
it, basically. I like to vary my physical actvity -- I play in
different sports leagues throughout the year, and usually
incorporate running in their somewhere.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, rapping (yes, seriously), sports that require a ball,
poker, listening and giving objective advice, using my hands, and
most things that require strategy or analytical skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sexy-smooth jazz voice, haha. I don't know, that I'm a human?
How do I answer a question about other peoples' perceptions unless
they've told me? It's not like I'm asking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too...much...information to process. I'm only half-trying to
cop-out here. This seems like very ephemeral knowledge, and who
really needs to read a long list of things other people have done
to get to know me better? I will just say I enjoy a wide variety of
quality work. The artist in me can appreciate things that I
wouldn't otherwise voluntarily associate with. Oh, and I almost
never have time to watch TV -- that could be relevant.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dr. Pepper (currently under evaluation, trying out Dr. Pepper 10
for a healthier alternative),
My thumb drive,
Time to myself,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What all the characters in my head are going to do once they get
put down on (figurative) paper. And yes, I'm talking about my
writing, not a mental condition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relishing that the weekend is here. Unless I have to work that
weekend, which is one-third of the time. I will most likely be
chilling and planning for what adventure I'm going to undertake on
Saturday, though I do get out on a date every once-in-a-while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once, when making out with a girl, she started sucking on my tongue
so hard that it dislocated (well became unhinged, popped loose,
whatever the technical term that applies). She said she just got
too excited, but that's still bad technique. I couldn't talk
normally for a week. Please don't ever do that. Not just to me but

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to get to know me better, and you're capable of keeping
your profile up for at least 4 days. I don't get annoyed easily,
but it's a slight bother to invest time getting to know someone
only to have them instantly (and unexpectedly) vanish back into the
