Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
basically looking for somebody who is mature enough to have their
shit together, but hasn't sacrificed the idea of fun being a big
factor in your life.
ok, so the whole profile is basically a summary, isn't it? so i'm
turning this section in to a "things you should know" section, to
scare off any that are super picky but somehow looked at more than
the "My details" section.
-i don't drink, but don't mind if you do. its really not a big
deal. i'm not like a recovering alcoholic or anything, i've just
never drank alcohol. not so much as a drop. and while i'm ok with
people who drink, people who get sloppy drunk on a regular basis
kinda turn me off.
-i'm vegetarian. i'm not a snob about it, but if provoked i'll
defend myself about it. if you eat me, it is in no way a deal
breaker. i've actually never dated anybody who was a strict
-i don't smoke. i think they smell awful. i've never dated a
smoker, and i'm not really sure how i feel about the idea of doing
-i'm atheist. i've dated christians and agnostics and buddhists and
spiritual people. so, religion isn't a deal breaker either. again,
if provoked regarding this, i'm more than prepared to defend my
-ok, this is one that has bothered me. so i've seen a number of
profiles that stated that, because they like intelligence in a
partner, they don't want to be contacted by anybody who doesn't
have a college degree. seriously? a college degree is NOT an
accurate way to determine how intelligent somebody is. there are
many kinds of intelligence, and many people who get a college
degree are far from intelligent. i went to college for a while and
hated it. a few years later, upon doing some traveling outside the
US, i started to come to the realization that i'm just not a career
oriented person. i work a full time job, making plenty of money to
support myself and my hobbies. i'm smart, trustworthy, clever, and
caring. if the fact that i don't have a degree is really that much
of a deal breaker, well...best of luck.
-i don't send out a lot of messages on here. doing a bit of google
searching, i found that women rate 80% of men as "below average",
which is frankly rather discouraging. i also suspect that women get
a LOT of messages on here, and that it becomes a chore to sift
through all the garbage. so, if after reading the rest of my
profile you want to chat a bit, don't be shy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
on a deeper note? re-evaluating a lot of stuff, right now. i need
to travel more, so starting to save for that again.
more shallow? gaming on wednesday night, ultimate on thursday and
sunday, and sometimes tuesday.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
awful puns. quick comebacks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: anything R.A. Salvatore or Neil Gaiman. The Princess Bride.
Lamb. Good Omens. Hitchhiker's Guide series.
movies: The Princess Bride, Labyrinth, Leon... many others.
shows: Firefly, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Babylon 5...lots of sci-fi,
clearly. and Game of Thrones, of course
music: joanna newsome, metric, sara watkins, tool, a perfect
circle, fiona apple
food: vegetarian. my favorite meal is served at kuba kuba, but i
eat at thai diner too more than anywhere else. and my vegetarian
chili is fantastic.
i saw a profile that listed favorite board games, and thats a GREAT
board games: probably a toss up between Dominion and the Firefly
board game (which i'm told is still really enjoyable to people who
aren't even fans of/familiar with the show. i recently bought Five
Tribes, but have yet to try it. Bang is great. i wish there were
more games that didn't require 4 players to really shine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
ipod (for my drive to work), a disc for ultimate, my crock pot,
lime juice and simple syrup (i make a lot of limeade), and a set of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how i wish i traveled more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
in bed early. usually working at 5:30am saturday morning.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you're nerdy/passionate about something.
-you're not afraid to speak your mind.
-you can accept that i'm naturally introverted. i tend to stay
clear of huge events (concerts and such), and tend to be somewhat
quiet around strangers or even large groups of friends.
-you're interested in ultimate, disc golf, or tabletop gaming. or
you're down to just toss the frisbee around a while. i would love
it if you're somebody who doesn't want to spend all of their time
inside OR outside, but a healthy mix of both.
-you have a local-ish restaurant you want to recommend
-you're liberal minded. ultra-conservatives can really get under my
-stability would be...ya know...great. i don't care how much money
you make, but it'd be lovely to meet somebody who makes ends meet
and spends somewhat responsibly.
-you appreciate that it can be kinda hard to sell oneself on
clearly, chemistry is really important in a relationship, be it
romantic or just friendship. sometimes two people can have a ton in
common on paper and just not hit it off in person. so, maybe OKC
has its matching percentage spot on, but i question it. if reading
my profile tempts you to say hello, but the match percentage is
discouraging...shoot a message my way anyway. i think that,
ultimately, you can't tell how two people will get along until
they've met in person. that being said, after we've had a chance to
be reasonably certain that the other isn't a crazy person, i'd like
to meet face to face. nothing is certain until then.
