Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like everyone else here, I don't particularly care for talking
about myself, but like everyone else here I want someone to be
interested in me. So it looks like we're all in the same
uncomfortable position. Like the back of a Volkswagen.
I just got back to town after working the end of the season at my
friend's restaurant on a tiny little island off of Rhode Island.
I'm looking forward to enjoying autumn in New England and then
subsequently hating winter in New England (This year can't possibly
be as bad as last year, right? Please?).
I went on a 10,000 mile road trip across America a couple years
ago,never taking the same road twice, all by myself, with only a
Donatello action figure to keep me company. I kept a travel journal
the entire time and it's now one of my most prized
I like reading and museums. I'm just as comfortable in swanky
cocktail bars sipping a manhattan as I am in a dark dive bar with a
shot of bourbon, but I'm exceptionally uncomfortable in
I refuse to describe myself as "laid back" or "chill" despite the
fact that I have a relatively even keeled demeanor. Something about
those descriptors make me think of some douchebag frat boy wearing
a polo shirt and a visor at a Dave Matthews concert.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working to support my creativity habit. At some point I would
hope I can combine my need to pay bills and my desire to be
creative. I used to joke that having an English degree really only
qualifies you to be a bartender, but to be honest I'm really proud
of the fact that I work in restaurants and bars. I get that people
will always ask when I'm going to get a "real job", but I get paid
very well to do a very stressful job, and I do it very well. Plus I
get to try all of the beers and cocktails and wines and food that I
want, and I get to watch everyone else get hammered and act stupid.
It's like a reality TV show.
I'm just trying to be the best human being that I can be. I think a
lot of people spend a lot of time measuring their lives and success
on careers or money or things, and not enough on kindness and
building relationships with the people they truly care about.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A bunch of things I suppose. At the very least I try to be a really
good human being. Judging by the people I have in my life and their
opinion of me, I'd say I'm pretty successful at that one.
I play a bunch of instruments, and a couple I can even play well! I
like to write, but I've fallen out of practice.
I have what some may call an unnecessary knowledge of whiskey,
beer, cocktails and wine.
I'm also really good at games that can be played with a beverage in
hand, preferably outside on a summer day such as, but not limited
to, wiffle ball, bocce, horseshoes, ladder golf and kan jam.!

Rapier wit? Hipster glasses? Clever t-shirt?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books, movies, TV, music, and food. A lot. So much so that
it would be a waste of my time and yours to attempt to list all of
the things that I like.
You know what I don't like? Dubstep. Dubstep sounds like
non-consensual robot sex. Every time you listen to dubstep, a robot

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How language affects everything that we do, and how everything has
its own language, from English to Math to Music to anything. In
order to learn something you need to learn the language of what it
is that you want to learn. If you can't express to others what it
is that you are doing or trying to do, then you can't get help with
it and more importantly, you can't really share it with
How I want to write a comic in which Hall and Oates are a crime
fighting duo, and their archenemy is "The Maneater", a sultry femme
fatale. They would be helped out by their man inside the police
force, Private Eyes.
Whatever happened to running away with the circus? Wasn't that a
thing for a while? I could totally run away with the circus.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing I do every night Pinky. Trying to take over the

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well that wouldn't be very private if I told you. That would be
like going from here to there. By the time you got there it would
be here. That being said, I love Taylor Swift. Someone needs to
break that girls heart again soon so I can have a catchy new single
for the summer time.
Also, I may or may not have detailed maps of Westeros and the
island from Jurassic Park hanging on my wall. You probably won't
notice that because you'll be too busy admiring my Millenium Falcon
with lights and real movie sounds that I've had since I was 12. I
swear, I'm an adult. Promise.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're funny and kind and interesting. You try to be as positive as
you can be despite how ridiculous things can get. You realize that
the only thing you ever have complete control over is your own
reaction. Or if you want to tell me your OKCupid horror stories of
men pulling up their shirts and using terrible grammar to suggest
lewd behavior. That shit is hilarious to me.
However, none of this matters if you believe in the antiquated
gender roles that say that the guy should make the first move,
which I always thought was bullshit. If you want to say hi, just go
for it. Just sayin.
