Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm quirky- I've got a lot of idiosyncracies and catch phrases, a
lot of strong likes and dislikes. It makes me an interesting person
to get to know, both up-front and in the long-term. I've got mixed
morals- in my own world I'm both hero and anti-hero (I don't really
regard myself as a villain, but I've certainly sabotaged my own
efforts enough to be an enemy to myself). I much prefer my own
world- it's a lot easier and a lot better than the reality everyone
else lives in, though I'm not above slumming it in the real world
when I need to.
I'm strange, but in good ways. I work at night and I love it. The
idea of getting up early in the morning is antithetical to me. Most
people would never think to use the word antithetical in everyday
conversation, but I do it like I'm sesquipedalian, or something. I
like cold weather but hate it when it gets too hot (from November
to April is pretty good- any other month and I've probably got the
air conditioner on). I also like rain, and prefer to make my place
of residence as close as possible to a dark, dank, chilly cave. My
views may not be popular, but I'm honest enough to admit to
I'm a wanna-be amateur cook. My food is now labeled as fit for
human consumption! Or, at least I wouldn't be embarrassed to serve
it to someone. I've even been told that I sound like I know what
I'm talking about- that's pretty good, right? I will admit to
cheating though- I'm a big fan of the crock pot (also known by some
as the slow cooker- I'm curious as to why some people call it one
and others the, well... other). As winter approaches and the
weather cools down I'll start making some nice stews... it warms
you up and makes you feel good inside.
I'm kind, I'm respectful, and I *listen*. I will remember the silly
little thing you said you liked on our first date, and I will do it
for you six months later without you mentioning it again, just
because I know it will make you happy. I will listen to your
viewpoints with an open mind, and even if I disagree I will still
accept them as valuable as long as you've put some thought into
them. I will always treat you like an important and special person,
because you are and you deserve it.
I'm occasionally cheesy. Reread the above paragraph if you
I'm loyal. There's very little I wouldn't do for the important
people in my life (within reason, but it would have to be pretty
tremendously huge for me to say no to).
I'm modest. Only most things about me are completely awesome. Not
everything. To claim that everything about me is completely awesome
would be arrogant. I'm not arrogant- I'm modest.
I'm hungry. Do you have anything to eat?
I am intelligent, funny, and laid-back
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to block out the sun. Man's gotta have his hobbies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job. It's a constant source of amazement and pride to me that
I'm able to do what I do and do it so well.
The first things people usually notice about me

Regardless of the weather, I'm never dressed warm enough. Unless
it's summer- then I'm all good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

a) I've read many great books in my time, but there are two series
that stand out as far above and beyond all the rest- The Dark Tower
series by Stephen King and the Song of Ice and Fire series by
George R.R. Martin. I don't have words for what these books do to
b) Gladiator, the Patriot, the 13th Warrior, Kingdom of Heaven, the
Last Samurai, Children of Men, others that I can't remember right
c) my musical taste is eclectic- I love a lot of cheesy 80s music,
but I also like hard rock, some R&B and rap, some classical,
and a little each of this, that, and the other thing (but mostly
the other thing). There's an incredible brass band that I have the
fortune to encounter every now and then in the NYC subways called
Hypnotic- they're absolutely amazing.
d) a high quality, truly well-prepared scallop. So tasty, and
healthy to boot!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) adjectives. Why say in one word what you can say much more
emphatically in 10!?
2) brussels sprouts. Yes, I know you don't like them- you've never
3) diet coke. I'm not proud of this one, but I do love the
4) back skritchies! cannot get enough!
5) sarcasm. It's even better when I get as good as I give.
6) experience. It's what life is all about- literally.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can block out the sun (it's not a good hobby unless you
really get into it). I've managed to totally block the sun out of
my own apartment. Now, I just need to figure out how to do it to
the other 99.99999999% of the world! I'm certain you, who are
reading this right now, will want to be associated with the man who
plunged the world into permanent darkness!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, spending time with friends, or practicing martial arts at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to think that Massachusettes was a state somewhere out in
the Midwest. I used to be *really* bad at geography. :)
Oh, and that I have an addiction to smilies. :)
Did I mention that I once dislocated my shoulder at the gym, and
nearly dislocated the *other* shoulder while trying to kill a wasp
that got into my parents' house?
And, as if that's all not bad enough... I like Ace of Base. It's
true! I'm sorry, don't hate me!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think I sound like the type of person you could get along
with, either as friends or as friends leading to something more. It
gets harder and harder to meet people as time goes on, so newcomers
are always, always welcome. This place is one of the ways I get to
be social-ish. If you think we'd get along, I'd love to hear from
you. If I sound boring or snobbish or geeky or downright silly to
you, then you probably shouldn't waste your time or mine. But have
a good day, nonetheless. :)
