Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a simple man. Yet, explaining myself is complicated.
I'm an introvert living an increasingly extroverted life.
I was once referred to as "the world's most harmless
I like to think I've elevated the hashtag to an art form.
I am in an open relationship with the incomparably wonderful
She will probably want to meet you. She wants to meet
If you're wondering what kind of friend/boyfriend/lover I'd be, I
actually have references. Believe me, I'm just as shocked as you
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Amateur writer. Amateur publisher. Amateur photographer. Amateur
filmmaker. Amateur actor. Amateur audiobook narrator. Amateur
HTML/CSS coder. I'm basically a big amateur.
I have a day job. It's as terrible as a day job should be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I remind them of somebody.
That I'm shorter than I look.
That I'm older than I look.
That there's nothing "ironic" about my outfit. I actually think I
look good in this.
That if you don't stop me I'll keep explaining and explaining and
explaining and explaining....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:If I had to pick a favorite, it would have
to be Transmetropolitan, a graphic novel by Warren Ellis.
Close seconds would be anything by Sarah Vowell and David Sedaris
(I know, I'm a Portland Cliche). I've most recently enjoyed
Ready Player One by Ernest Kline, Bossypants by
Tina Fey, and John Dies At The End by David Wong.
TV: I like to think I have discerning tastes, but
when I think about what I spend my time watching instead of
reading, I'm pretty sure I'm just lying to myself. Jon Stewart,
Stephen Colbert, and Rachel Maddow are my only links to the real
world. I'm trying to spend more time writing and less time watching
TV, but when I do watch TV it's probably Supernatural,
Game of Thrones, Community, Falling
Skies, and House of Cards. From across the pond, I've
enjoyed Sherlock, Being Human, Life On
Mars, and I will always drop everything for the next episode
of Doctor Who.
Movies: This is a can of f**king worms right
Music: Nerdcore. If you don't know what that is,
Google it. You're welcome.
Food: People think I'm weird because I can't eat
eggs. No, it's not an allergy. They just taste disgusting to me.
Even the smell makes me ill.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A balanced approach to the comedy and tragedy of life.
3. Symmetrical coincidences (or coincidental symmetries).
4. An escape route.
5. Quiet time.
6. Deadpan humor.
7. A healthy skepticism towards the establishment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ice cream flavor naming schemes. The opposite of maybe. Which first
string characters have to die. Why my gay friends don't hit on me
more. Who put the "bop" in the "bop-she-bop." Whether or not I
should enlist a Cognitive Interpreter for this. Why nobody else
noticed the spider is missing. The number of times I say "okay" in
a day. The best way to start the next paragraph. The price of tea
in China. Regenerating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Arguing with myself over character motivations vs juvenile male
fantasy, how much unproven scientific theory to lean my science
fiction plot on, or which friends to chance offending by basing
flawed characters off them.
Or listening to an old episode of MST3K while I do dishes. That's
actually a rather high possibility.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy musicals way more than a straight man should.
I will secretly judge you on your usage of "there," "their," and
I was once lectured by OKCupid for being "too picky." I wasn't sure
what to make of it, but I still felt guilty.
I don't make eye contact with anyone. It's nothing personal. You
probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't told you, though. I
didn't even realize it myself until I was 30.
If I owned a chainsaw I would stencil the words "Everything's Fine"
on the side, because I think that's funny.
