Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Joe and this is where I am in my life today:
Currently I'm in transition. After sacrificing two years of my life
to graduate school in Connecticut I've moved to Virginia to pursue
a career as an adolescent therapist. It's been a difficult yet
I value things like honesty, deep conversations, books, coffee,
love, acceptance, individuality and humor. All these things
genuinely make me feel good. I'm pretty successful at letting the
trivial (and even not so trivial) things go because I value my
peace of mind and serenity more than anything. I believe that
treating myself well is the foundation to treating others well. No
one wants to be around someone who is being negative or miserable
including myself when I start to act that way. Lastly, I'm at my
best when my attitude can see the world through a glass that is
half full. My drink of choice is gratitude. Optimism is my way out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently in transition. I just moved back to Virginia from
Connecticut for a career as an adolescent therapist. I want to go
back to school when and if it is in the cards for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping my mouth shut and my ears open. It helps me remember a lot
of the things people say and the details of conversations I've had.
I also pay attention to small details wherever I go.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea because I've never had a reason to ask. However, I
think I have a nice beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Put one in front of me and I'll read it. My favorite is
Malcolm X's autobiography followed by Choke by Chuck. I binged on
Irvin Yalom and finished Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. A couple of
my friends started me on the Game of Thrones series so that's what
I'm into now.
Shows: South Park , The Daily Show, Colbert Report, MSNBC Lockup,
and The First 48. Humor and criminals.
Movies: I'm not a huge movie fan and won't go out of my way to see
one. They interest me, but not enough for me to put in any
Music: I love most music and prefer 90's alternative. Being from
the north I don't listen to country. Sorry. If you listen to
country the length of time I listen to it is related to how much I
Food: I spent the last year being a pescetarian for sociopolitical
reasons. It was a good experience but I like meat. Carbs are always
delicious. Give me some pasta and some bread.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, Friends, Clients, Music, Spirituality (intentionally not
religion) and Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can't wait to wear jeans and hoodies come the fall.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't drink so you won't find me at the bar. It was never really
my scene anyway. After sacrificing my last two years in graduate
school I spend a lot of time with my friends. I've neglected them
after all so I'm in the process of catching up on two years of
random crazy adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a tongue ring and I guaged it so at one point I could put a
straw through the hole. Who knows why I thought that was a good
idea but I did. The end result: it destroyed part of my mouth and
required surgery to fix it.
The cat in my picture isn't mine. That's Penny, my friends cat. My
cat is Jackson, he's a Russian Blue, and he talks a lot.
