Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who loves awkwardly introspective walls of text?!
Currently I've taken up being a barista again for hipster cred. Or
maybe it's to gear up for next fall when I'll be co-running a
brewery with my best friend. He will be the brewer and I'll be
managing the front end, so I'm pretty excited for this coming
My sense of humor is really broad. I can die laughing at anything
ranging from slapstick to incredibly dark comedy. I'm a thinker,
and love to engage in intellectual conversations. It's important to
me to be able to be able to debate someone and then be able to step
away and still have a good time with them. I pride myself on being
able to view things through different perspectives, but also let's
please make fun of celebrities together because they are dumb and
make so much more money than we do!
I love music. There is rarely a moment when I'm not listening to
it, or playing it myself. I've gone through the snobbery phase and
have reached a point where I can appreciate almost all music (I'm
not sure I'll ever understand dubstep). But the music that I love
to play myself depends on the kind of guitar in my hands. Acoustic
tends to lean to mellow and folksy, and electric skews
I have a writer's soul, but you know how you write three pages,
lean back to stretch and catch a glimpse of Fitzgerald's This Side
of Paradise and then look back at your own words and lay your face
on the delete key until it's all gone? Basically that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working during the days, and trying to keep my nights busy with
friends and good art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analyzing literature, being observant, and staying up really late
for no good reason.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Glasses, sense of humor, hopefully how ruggedly handsome I am (that
last one has probably never happened. Ever)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) Thumbs. Holding stuff is awesome
2.) Glasses. Seeing stuff is pretty cool too
3.) Music. Almost as important as the first two.
4.) My guitar
5.) Other people. To you know, talk to and stuff.
6.) Six is a lot of things. Five was a good amount.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. If I have a fault, it's thinking about Every. Single.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends having a drink more than likely, but lately work
has been pretty stressful so there's like a 41% chance I'm in
pajama pants by 6:30 because I am a party animal*
*Don't look up the definition of party animal, just trust me on

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You understand and accept that 92% of the things I say are
facetious for the sake of humor. I wasn't joking about that pajama
pants thing though. PARTY. ANIMAL.
