Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Midwestern-turned-Cali-turned-Midwestern transplant to St.
Louis. Went to Wash U back in the day, then lived in and loved San
Francisco, then moved back to the Lou for work a couple years ago.
I love exploring the city and trying new bars and restaurants, as
long as they're not too stuffy and self-impressed (okay, sometimes
even if they are).
I like being active and competitive, but I'm not that guy on your
softball team who takes the whole thing too seriously. I like
bourbon and am trying to develop a palate for it. I like an urban
lifestyle, so I live downtown, but I'll probably move somewhere
else soon -- you get stale if you stay in the same place too
I cannot be trusted with chocolate milk or Imo's Pizza. I love to
travel, and wish I had time and money enough to do it more (goals,
goals). I miss snowboarding fiercely (stupid flat Midwest), and
take a trip or two to binge on it every winter. I find doing dishes
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I manage the customer service team at a small startup that makes
business software that's too boring to go into detail about.
Startup lyfe yo. (But seriously, it's interesting and usually fun
being a part of St. Louis' mini-startup boom.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving massages, or so I'm told. I'm pretty sure that it's easy to
be good at giving massages (it's not like I'm an expert on muscular
anatomy), but I'll take the accolades if I can get them, I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This question is weird because it asks me what's obvious about me,
which is a weird thing to have to spell out. Anyway, people
normally notice that I'm tall, wry, and sarcastic. Hopefully they
also think I'm smart and stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I don't read as much as I should or as much
as I used to. Trying to fix that. Historically, though: Infinite
Jest. Anything by Haruki Murakami. I'm starting the Welcome to
Night Valen novel as I write this.
Shows: I watch my beloved St. Louis Cardinals a
lot during the baseball season. Otherwise, I'm the guy who doesn't
get everyone's Arrested Development references. Currently the only
contemporary shows I'm caught up on are...Game of Thrones and
Sherlock? I guess that's it. I don't hate TV or anything, I just
don't make time for it normally.
Music: Used to be into rock in my angsty youth,
but I've mellowed out a lot. Lately: Bastille, Hozier, Royal Blood,
Everything Everything, X Ambassadors, Nine Inch Nails, Stromae,
Muse, and an unabashed love of most Top 40s pop.
Food: I love sandwiches and Korean food. Bibimbap
is my desert island food. Mushrooms are gross. I'll try most
anything -- and people who won't weird me out. It's a big world
full of lots of tasty food!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I can't type a goddamn em dash with a normal button on my
keyboard. It's almost 2016! Give me an em dash key, you

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully eating some sort of delicious food at a restaurant with
friends. Failing that, hopefully hanging with said friends later
on, either at someone's house, or at a bar, or whatever. I am
likely to be drinking, because I do that "socially," like it says
over on the side there.
If it's a quieter night, maybe a movie or cooking dinner or
something more low-key. I suppose I might be on a date, also.
That's what this thing is for, right? You should probably message
me so that I can be on a date, maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find writing messages on OkCupid totally exhausting. I have a
habit of writing things that are way too long and then overediting
them, and I have to fight to keep that in check on OKC. So if you
got a message from me, I'm probably napping now. Shit's stressful
and I overthink it like whoa.
That's not really that private, but fuck you, go on a date or two
with me if you want my intimate secrets.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an active explorer-at-heart type person who likes to wander
around town and try new places. If you like to have a good time in
either hiking boots or high heels, we'll get along.
Or if you're just really into podcasts and would like to talk about
the podcasts that you subscribe to for a long time.
Who are you looking for?
