Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Ryan.
I'm here for the same reason you are: because we're both innately
dependent human beings afraid of dying alone.
Or yeah, I mean, I'm just here because I'm new in town, or because
I work a lot so it's hard to meet people, or some other reason that
won't make me seem like just another loser with a dating
I think I'm pretty fucking cool-- I'm a journalist, I'm good at
darts, I wear a watch sometimes... Shit, I'd be friends with
I'm just awful at meeting people. I'm good at a lot of things, but
saying words at people is not one of them. When I'm in a crowded
bar full of people, I'm completely out of my element. Mostly
because I'm an introvert, but also because I hate bar people. All
the guys, in their goddamn cologne-stained going-out-to-get-laid
shirts, hitting on those girls who screech like a fucking siren
from Greek mythology every time the DJ plays Darius Rucker's
version of Wagon Wheel.
God damn, I hate those fucking people.
So rather than go there, I'm here.
I'm not looking for a hookup, or some kind of grey-area,
will-they-or-won't-they friends with benefits type situation. I'm
old fashioned. If we're gonna date, let's do it for real. Let me
take you out to a meal I can't afford and see some shitty movie and
then get some fucking ice cream after. This hookup culture
frustrates the hell out of me. I'm just not wired that way. I can
only concentrate on one girl at a time.
So yeah, I'm a little rough around the edges, but I'm a nice guy,
sometimes to a fault.
I'm looking for someone I can just sit on the couch and talk with
for hours. A friend I can make fun of, who will throw it right back
at me. Some one who understands that respect is a two-way street,
who will make an effort. Someone who's affectionate and likes to
care for people. Honestly, just be like two of those things and
you're already better than half of the girls I've been with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm finishing up my degree in English Creative Writing. I have my
own blog and I'm the sports editor for my college newspaper. I also

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding actual conversations. Being tragically awkward. Writing.
Playing bags. I also think I might be a dog whisperer. It's weird,
man. Animals just flock to me. I'm like Steve Carrell in that one
movie that sucked.

As far as food, I like Italian, Mexican and Asian... though I'm not
too fond of Jews.
I'm kidding, you can be Jewish.
