My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Words matter.

I've never petted a tiger, run a Tough Mudder, taken a bathroom selfie or been to Machu Picchu. Which means I live in constant fear that OKCupid is going to revoke my profile at any second.

Faux hashtags are almost never funny. #ipromise

"LOL" will, in time, prove to be the single worst thing that has ever happened to the English language.

I tend to dream in terms of plane crashes, wars, wildly proportioned architecture, invasions and other sorts of catastrophe.

There are other things I care about. Big, important things that span continents and centuries. I just can't think of any right now. Ask me again later.

In the meantime, I'll save you the time and energy of the inevitable question everyone seems to ask: "What are you looking for on here?"

After a year and a half on OKCupid, I don't have preconceptions about what I'm looking for anymore. I used to. I've had phases of, for example, looking for sex. I've had phases of looking for someone to spend "all" my time around. I've had phases of looking for pals to do fun things with. But one of the big lessons I've learned since starting this ridiculous, exasperating, exhausting online dating thing is that preconceptions just don't work. Period.

I now come into each new conversation and each date with a blank slate and zero expectations. Would it be great if we had some sort of scandalously torrid affair? I would imagine so. Would it be great to make an amazing new friend who brightens my life in all kinds of ways? Absolutely. Would it be great to meet someone exciting and attractive to just spend some time with and get to know? No doubt. Would it be great to find The One and fall madly in love and make a whole bunch of the most brilliant and staggeringly beautiful babies the world has ever seen? Of course it would.

Any and all possible outcomes would each be great in their own way. But I don't -- and won't -- push deliberately toward any of them. We meet. We talk. You laugh. I laugh. And then we go from one moment to the next, and wherever things end up, great, it'll be awesome when we get there. Sound good?

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Words. Some photos. The occasional video.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Flip cup, Minesweeper, Boggle..... oh, and Taboo: scary good.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't need any of this stuff. Except this ashtray, and that's the only thing I need is this. I don't need this or this -- just this ashtray. And this paddle game. The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all I need. I don't need one other thing. Not one. I need this chair. The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
There are definitely sharks in every body of water bigger than a bathtub, and they're definitely about to grab your feet every time you climb out.

And then there's that scene in Season 3 of Louie where Liz tells Louie that the reason he gets anxious at a roof's edge is because part of him wants to jump.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Work, eat, read, write, sleep -- hopefully with a few drinks in there somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I suck at duvet covers. Always have.

... you don't confuse your and you're, then and than, it's and its. You get the drift.

... you can infuriate and inspire me at the same time, and prove me wrong on a regular basis.

... we'd make beautiful babies. Not that I want you to give me babies. But I do need to know we'd churn out some awe-inspiring offspring.
