Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Don't these profiles all sound the same after awhile? OK, how about
this: since we're both lovers of the arts, especially the musical,
theatrical, and foodical ones, you & I will make dinner by
opening cookbooks to random pages and improvising on whatever
recipes we find there. For dessert we'll snarf down some hot fudge
and strawberries on homemade ice cream. Then we'll watch a Tracy -
Hepburn flick (Adam's Rib? Desk Set? Woman of the Year?). Then
we'll go over to the piano and play & sing "The Very Thought of
You" followed by "I've Just Seen a Face", "If I Loved You", and end
with "Two Sleepy People."
Or we'll just play Scrabble and go out for sushi. Hard to say. What
would you rather?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm not getting bored, since boredom is a life-threatening
condition. So I have no intention of retiring unless forced to. I'm
staying in great shape, learning piano, and oh by the way, while
we're on the subject: still looking for love. Is it you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself & listening. Having good manners, being loyal
and dependable, being funny. Finding good movies & other
cultural things to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look like someone else. For some reason I can't quite figure
out, I'm never that person. This can be a good conversation-opener,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Black Orpheus, Jules and Jim, The Godfather, The Lives of
Others, many more. Books: Anna Karenina, the Patrick O'Brian novels
(oh yeah, the movie Master and Commander!), The Sun Also Rises. I
like food, too, as a rule.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends, coffee, chocolate, intellectual stimulation, pets,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make sure I'm not without any of those six things without
which I could never do.
