Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Quiet, calm, laid-back, low-maintenance.
But also smart, sarcastic, a bit wacky.
Oh, most of the Q&A section was filled out about 5 years back
when I made this account. Too lazy to go through it to clean up and
update, so tread with caution.
[edit: metatarsal injury, so i can hobble around but not very fast
or very far, probably/hopefully only until mid-july or so. don't
let this stop you.]
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work, sleep, read books, play games (not *those* games, only the
board- and video- kind), explore things I haven't seen or done or
tasted before, argue the nature of the universe (sometimes with the
universe), teach basic programming concepts to people who should
know better, and play with other people's cats. Sometimes all at

I keep forgetting to ask, so if we meet make sure to tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Mostly fantasy and sci-fi, but I delve into all genres.
(according to Goodreads, I *am* the 1%. Whatever that means.
Food: Oh, glorious food! I eat and enjoy everything, although the
various asian cuisines have captured my heart (indian, chinese,
japanese, thai, the occasional vietnamese soup)
Movies: Utterly indifferent to the pretty graphics, and can't stand
3D. Jet Li's "Hero" was amazing. Avatar was rubbish. If it was made
in the last 5 years, chances are that I haven't even heard about
it, much less seen it.
Music: A little bit of practically everything, with a slight
preference for electronic music and hybrid genres. Notable
exceptions are country (boring), and rap (annoying).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order, and leaving off the obvious and the

source for bulk cheap books)
2) The internet
3) Delicious food
4) Sleep (in plentiful quantities)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What people with a profile consisting of "I like to hang out with
my friends", "my favorite movie is Jurassic Park", and 3 answered
questions in the Q&A (with no comments or notes) expect in the
way of an introductory message.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping, or hitting a meetup, or playing board games, or hanging
out with friends, or eating dinner with family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really, really hate phones. They combine the awkwardness of
real-time communication with the awkwardness of not talking to
someone face-to-face. I'd really rather not call you, except in
emergencies. Message (okc, fb, whatever), text, or meet me in real
life if you want to talk.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm fairly nice and I rarely bite, so don't be afraid to start the
conversation! I am not turned off by girls who take initiative!
(but if the match is under 60%, there may not be much point)
Now for the actual shpiel:
I'm looking for a nice Jewish girl for a serious relationship, but
friends (and less-serious relationships, I suppose) are welcome in
all shapes and sizes.
You should message me if you found that question in the Q&A
section and can explain why 36, or if you had 700 or higher on any
of the English sections on the SATs (because there's definitely a
zombie somewhere in my family tree - the one thing I find truly
irresistible is braaaaains), or I sound interesting, or you're just
bored, or you added entertaining explanations to most of your

For people who use the star ratings - it's only good as an
anonymous high-five. I'll probably sign up for the A-list to see
*who* actually rated me highly once the number gets large enough,
but that won't be any time soon, and until then it'll just be an
