Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm, where to start...
Call me Ishmael. Don't do that, call me William. I live in the hazy
gray area between easily definable categories, so this
self-description may at times seem unclear or even contradictory,
but that's sort of who I am. My life has been and will always be an
adventure, as I'm rarely content and I passionately seek change and
new unique experiences. My goals are lofty and far-fetched, and
someday I want to change the world. For now, I'm a free-lance
writer, an aspiring novelist, an indie game designer, and an office
drone. I love to learn for the sake of learning, and if I had the
means I'd stay in school forever.
I refuse to live by stereotypes. I may ask to borrow your hair
I'm quick to accept others.
My sense of humor is dry and witty, other times absurd. I firmly
believe that as adults we all take ourselves too seriously. As a
personality trait I am constantly challenging authority and getting
myself in trouble.
Let me think...
I find dangerous things sexy. I'm a bit absurd, a touch random, but
passionate to a fault. I don't believe that I'll ever truly be
content until I see and do everything this planet has to offer, and
I usually follow my heart wherever it takes me.
I have disastrous luck. I don't believe in luck.
I play jokes on people, mostly myself. I eat total junk and would
probably burn down my house if I tried to cook anything more
complicated than a TV dinner ["What?? Microwave this on high for
how long? Aw screw it, it's hot enough.]
I'm forgetful, I love to daydream, and I sometimes do
self-destructive things for the hell of it. I love parties.
I smile a lot.
I'm not looking to settle down, I doubt I ever will, but I'm a
hopeless romantic, and I'd like a partner who is as reckless and
hopeful, ambitious and silly as I am, who says "yes" to
opportunities when they present themselves, and who ultimately has
a big heart. I want as close to a 50-50 relationship as possible.
Actually, what I'm looking for is a female-version of myself.
Honestly, yes, this is probably due to some deep-seeded ego
problems, but I'm willing to forgive us that :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a lot. Writing all night like some vampire Hemingway.
Picking up the pieces from a bad breakup, moving on, starting over.
I'm trying to get back into KU to finish my degree after a long
(but interesting) absence. Working on a few different creative
projects, learning a new programming language, and singing in the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As if I'm not sounding conceited enough...
Let's see, I'd like to think I'm good at writing, cheering people
up, audio engineering, spending too much time looking at myself in
the mirror, trivia, falling in love, and making awkward situations
more awkward by sheer force of will.
And being charming, of course ^^
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am very tall? That I look much younger than I am because I'm
a vampire? Or perhaps that I always seem to be overdressed. Or
maybe I'm holding a coconut for some inexplicable reason.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-The shock collar I have to wear for impure thoughts. *ZAP!* Ouch!
"What? Can he not count to six?"
I'm afraid not. It's a congenital disorder. I can count to any
other number, just not six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse/nuclear
What aliens would think of us if they ever visited our planet far
in the future, sifting through the things we left behind.
Where technology will lead.
Politics, I swing between being passionate and utterly jaded.
Whether I can rock this jacket or what?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well... Sometimes when I'm brushing my hair, I pretend that the
brush is a microphone and I sing along (poorly) with my Pandora
And I talk to my cat. Like, too much...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
*if you spend a lot of time feeling out of place because of your
intelligence, and crave the company of someone who will understand
*if you are crazy enough to think that dangerous things are fun,
but not so crazy that you think magnets have healing
*if you have disturbing yet oddly seductive dreams in which you are
being cheered by millions of fanatical followers.
*you like to learn for the sake of learning,
*or if you wish to communicate with me using 26 glyph symbols and
about eight punctuation marks. It's like magic!
