Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for clicking on my face.
Things about me:
I'm originally from Southern California and I moved to WA three
years ago. My time here has consisted of design, dive bars,
kickball, petting dogs, being compared to the unibomber, and having
conversations with strangers in bars.
If we exchange messages I will probably ask you to happy hour or
something else fairly quickly. I'd just rather meet in person...
and I will NEVER ask you to coffee. There are certain principles in
this life I am willing to compromise, but getting to know you over
the backdrop of "endless sipping noises and clinking spoons" is
never going to happen.
I am sincerely "un-hip"... hopefully you would describe that as
"charmingly un-hip", and not "tragically un-hip". This is ok
though, because I'm open minded and willing to talk about why you
love the new [POPULAR SOCIAL THING] so much.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I live in Seattle and work in tech; magical unicorn alert! No, I'm
not a bro-grammer, no I dont work for THAT tech company, no I dont
hit the hill with my boys on Friday night to down some brews.
When I moved to Seattle I did so for no particular reason. After
being here about a year I decided I should buy a house... for no
particular reason. And now I'm filling out an online dating
profile... you can probably figure out the reason for this
Getting drunk and having conversations with strangers, and
sometimes people from the internet. If this doesnt sound like your
thing, pretend I wrote about camping or rock climbing instead.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using a method of sarcasm which is so subtle it cannot be perceived
by some human brains, leaving the other person to miss the
sarcastic device, get mad at me, and sometimes de-friend on
Words. I subscribe to "word of the day" emails... if you send me a
response back with "WORD OF THE DAY!" I will reply back with
Lists. To the point that sometimes when I get something done, and
it wasn't on a list, I will write that item down and then cross it
Speaking extemporaneously. Just try to find a subject I cant talk
about and endlessly tangent off of.
This question should be re-titled as, "humble brag about
yourself/be braggadocios and then use mild self deprecating humor
to make yourself not sound like a douche!"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Certainly not the final fantasy hair.
That I talk loud. I can't help it... I have the type of voice which
tends to carry and when I'm excited about something I tend to RAISE
MY VOICE WHEN I TALK ABOUT IT AND... oh, sorry... see, that's what
I was talking about...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever
since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really
didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual.
It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I
think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's
an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens
and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.
I eat any type of food-- any. Especially foods that others tend to
loathe because I like things that are distinct. The exception to
this is gefilte fish, which I'm starting to believe is just an
example of the jewish people trolling the rest of us. Its a
I read a lot... judging by what other people usually list in this
category for books, I am probably familiar with the authors you
TV: Its Always Sunny, Archer, whatever I can binge watch on
Movies: Yes, lets go to the movies!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I dont think I've ever read a single response to this question that
was really awesome... which is a risky thing to write as it could
summon the wrath of the Railroad Queen.
So instead I'll just mention that if your profile mentions "going
on an adventure"/"seeking a partner in crime" I will show up to the
date with a grappling hook and expect you not to make it weird.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lots of people have recently told me I remind them of Archer. I'm
now wondering if that's a polite way of telling me I'm a bit of a
The Universe. The increasingly likely idea that this universe and
everything we have ever known is a hologram. What it would be like
to endless bifurcate as I fell into a black hole. What gamma ray
bursts are really like.
Why so many people have the ubiquitous weird-angled pictures of
themselves rockclimbing. I rock climb on occasion and I think its
great that you do as well, but cant you just tell me you like to
rock climb, and Ill take your word for it? I think I already know
what you look like when rock climbing 200 yards away... like a
speck of a human in a harness against a rock cliff. It's tough to
tell the difference between you/anyone else/Danny Devito in some of
the rock climbing pics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching "Dateline". If your new spouse wants to go scuba
diving on your honeymoon, he/she is trying to kill you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once dropped a girl off after a date and said, "Goodnight, I'll
most likely kill you in the morning"... and she was the only girl
in my demographic who hadn't seen The Princess Bride.
How anytime I go back and read my own profile I am absolutely
mortified by what I wrote and how I come off. Yes, like Cyberdyne,
I am somewhat self-aware.
I just dont care about instagram.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think that maybe, possibly, I could be the type of person who
you can see making physical contact with you without triggering
your desire to reach for the bear mace.
You are the type of person who orders something off a menu
specifically because you don't know what it is.
You got that the Phil Collins stuff was a joke.
You like bar trivia, and would like a partner.
You can have a conversation without just asking questions.
