Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've come to believe that getting a good sense of a person through
their profile is usually hopeless. That being said, let's do our
I went to princeton and really like milky way bars. These two facts
are very different, of course. One of them represents a big part of
who I am, how I hope you'll judge me, and something I've spent too
much money on. The other is just where I did my undergrad.
Since graduation a few years ago, I've been working full-time in
the city and part-time on a Master’s, because apparently I hate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m a software developer. There's a pretty good chance that when
you see an ad on the interwebs, my team had something to do with
it. Sorry about that. I totally understand if you want to curse me
the next time you have to sit through a youtube pre-roll.
Anyway, despite the unfortunate stereotypes, I’m not an awkward
nerd with glasses and a pocket protector; I wear contacts and
hardly any of my shirts even have pockets. But in all seriousness,
not that there’s anything wrong with being that way, it really
bothers me when others assume that programming and “geekiness” are
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Judging strangers on the subway with impunity, inflicting highly
targeted ads on the (un?)suspecting e-public, inane comments,
pretending I know what I'm talking about, tennis, tetris, and
making milkshakes with just the right consistency
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The burrito I keep taped to my forehead. Ugh, I don’t know. My wry
wit? My cowlick? Should we meet, please do tell me, so I can put
something a little less stupid here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, LOTR, Anchorman
Books: My favorite book of all time is easily Dune. If you haven’t
read it, you've made a horrible mistake. I used to read a lot of
novels, but I haven’t in a long while. Now I pretty much just go
for the news and a few blogs.
Music: I’m mainly into alternative rock like the Killers and
Weezer, and classic rock with a southern twang, like the Eagles or
Allman Brothers Band. I'm fairly distraught to have to share a
universe with Coldplay.
TV Shows: Daily Show, Colbert, Late Night with Craig Ferguson, Meet
the Press, Chopped
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Java, family, the Jets,
And sometimes haiku
If your reaction just now was to double-check the number of
1) We’ll probably get along pretty well
2) Don’t be such a skeptic! I’m also really good at counting to at
least 7, maybe even 20 (with my socks off).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who the hell thought it was ok for "queueing" to have so many
vowels in a row?
Honorable mention: How did the remote get all the way over
But as ridiculous as much of this profile is, I'm not a complete
goofball. I love discussing anything from politics to sports or tv
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being pulled in every direction by everything in the
No, that's not a metaphor. It's just gravity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think Brian Williams is fantastic. There’s just something
incredible about how great he is at both delivering the news and
performing comedy on shows like 30 Rock. Edit: Yes, completely
devastated by recent events.
I'm planning to live forever. So far, so good.
One more thing about this section: It doesn't make sense to respond
with something like "it wouldn't be private if I admitted it here".
If I asked you who the shortest player on the Knicks is, would you
say, "none, they're all tall"?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It would be nice if a few of these are true:
- You're willing to put up with someone who, as it's probably
become clear, is really just a high-functioning idiot.
- You consider mediocre a dirty word.
- You don't "throw like a girl".
- You didn't answer "livin' it" for what you're doing with your
life. I mean, honestly. Thank you for that insightful
- You've found a mistake in my profile. Corrections welcome.
- I'm obviously biased on this one, but if I sent you a message! I
can pretty much guarantee I read your entire profile + a decent
chunk of your match questions, and put some thought into
whether/what to send/say.
