Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Kangaroos are just T-Rex deers. Think about it.
That isn't really meant to be any kind of indicator on who I am or
what I'm like, just a little ice-breaker. No, I did not make that
up (it's actually true).
First thing you should know about me: I'm an intellectual. GUH, I
know, we're the worst, right? Hopefully that's mitigated by the
second thing you should know about me: I'm really dumb in a lot of
ways, and my intellectual side is forced to confront it on a daily
basis, so I've developed a sense of humor about it.
I even have an entire photo album on my Facebook dedicated to
cataloging my daily failure to properly flip my eggs in the
skillet. Yes, I make myself eggs (nearly) every day.
I'm a dog person, though cats, like most animals, love me just
fine. Same with kids. While I do want to have the chillens some
day, and while I seem to get along with them really well now, I'm
perfectly happy being a non-parent for the time being. I'm still
building my career.
Last thing you should definitely know about me: I have a lot of
hope for the future. Part of me worries I may be setting
expectations too high, but if you never disappoint yourself you
never really tired much, did you? I want awesome things to happen,
and I want you (whoever you are) to be the best of them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to balance everything. I have many friends, many projects,
many interests. My day job is merely a precursor to what I want to
do someday, a stepping stone.
I guess in everything I am simply seeking improvement, in one way
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Driving. Among other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Obviously, that I have red hair. Sometimes I can't wait to go
Other things new acquaintances have been quoted observing about me:
I'm funny; I'm smart; I'm buoyant.

Food: Rather than just rattle off a bunch of good
dishes, I'll just say I will try anything once, but I have higher
success rates with stuff that is less than vegetarian. Not that I
don't enjoy a good salad (romaine, apples/pears,
rasins/cranberries, walnuts, almonds, tomatoes, strawberries (yes),
red & green peppers and grilled chicken OMG), but that's just
how it is. I especially have a hard time with onions (unless
they're hidden in every conceivable way) olives and cauliflower.
LOVE steamed broccoli.
Actually, you know what? No, I won't try ANYTHING once. Rules: it
has to be dead, and things with too many appendages are a "no,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
To answer this question, I imagined I was marooned on a small-ish
island. What six things would be the bare-minimum commodities that
could make me happiest?
The night sky
A few of these are admittedly a bit sappy, but truthfully, if I had
a personal heaven, it would be almost exclusively these things. I'm
not obsessed with any one kind of food or treat, I'm not in love
with my car or my phone... I just want those six things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I'm not a worrier, but I love to ponder. I'll consider
astrophysics one minute, and then I'll move on to ethics, history,
sex, architecture, law, philosophy, technology, or one of the many
stories I'm gradually writing in my head. Sometimes I just think
about that brick over there and the fact that it's seen a lot of
stuff in its years in the side of that building.
Also how boring it must be to be a brick.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no "typical" Friday night anymore. Sometimes I'm home,
eating dinner my brother (roommate) and I ordered out, sometimes
there are friends with us. Sometimes we're out and about.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're the love of my life. I imagine Fate has a way of making you
aware of this if you are.
Also if you want to. I can't guarantee I'll reply, and if I don't,
just remember: 99% of the messages I send out I never hear back
