My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you knew me in real life, you'd probably have a crush on me. I'm pretty good at a lot of things - I'm pretty smart, pretty funny, and an adequate musician. I try to be considerate and I'm cute. I have better ideas for dates than "Wanna meet up at Lucky Bar?" And as cool as that sounds, I'm even better in practice than in theory.

(It's possible that what I just wrote is a bit tongue in cheek.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spending far too much of my free time refreshing my Twitter feed. "What WILL Brain Gaar say next?!"

Also, killing trees and wasting soy ink for a living.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a knack for getting women to delete their Ok Cupid accounts after I send them a message.

I prefer to think that their reasoning is, "Oh, what a thoughtful and personalized message. But I'm really not actively looking for someone right now, so I should delete my account rather than waste the time of nice guys like him," rather than, "What the hell kind of pretentious message was that? Did he have to reference *both* Le Corbusier *and* Captain Beefheart in the same message? That's it - I'm deleting my account - no more freaks!"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My poor hygiene. (Frankly, not being other people, I wouldn't know.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
See, Ok Cupid isn't clear what it means by "things." Are we talking about concepts? Individual possessions? Fundamental particles of nature? Out of protest, I will only name three:

Concept: Understanding

Individual possession: Acoustic guitar

Fundamental particle: Higgs boson
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world - because it's pretty weird, innit?

The nature of consciousness in a deterministic universe.

How OK Cupid mistakenly thinks Buddhism is a religion and not a philosophy.

How I'm not a very good Buddhist. Oh, animals - will I ever stop eating you?

Why I'm even on this site if the cofounder thinks that there's a heavy element of serendipity to romance:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I'm pedantically editing other users' okcupid profiles ("Easygoing is *one* word!") or sobbing softly to myself in the corner because I'm so desperately lonely. Otherwise, I'm probably enjoying drinks with friends from grad school at a dive-y bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My account is solely for research purposes; I'm stealing trade secrets as I design my own dystopian online dating service,

When I see the tab on this site labeled "The Two of Us," I always, always, always get the Beatles song in my head.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you believe that any noun can be turned into a verb simply to suit today's modern lifestyles. Otherwise, if you believe in using actual verbs as verbs, you should send me a message.

You should send me a message if your favorite books are by Francis Bacon, your favorite urban designs are by Edmund Bacon, and your favorite films star Kevin Bacon.

But, really, I should probably be the one to contact you. Care to prove me wrong?
