I am passionately, vociferously, egregiously honest, and I would like to meet a woman who would not use any of the following adverbs—sporadically, inconsistently, inadvertently—to describe her level of honesty. Of course, if she were dishonest, then she wouldn't use ... you get the idea.
I do not know why the caged bird sings, but I have a hunch.
In the sixth grade, I came in second in a pass-punt-and-kick competition, but as Muhammad Ali said, "It ain't bragging if you can do it."
I am exactly as tall as I claim to be, and exactly as bald as my pictures show me to be. I am, however, willing to reveal more about myself than I have in this self-summary but felt a need to be whimsical rather than heartfelt. Perhaps it was something I ate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After having been the editor of a newspaper in Colorado for the last year, I'm glad to be back in Los Angeles. Though I am considering a move to Bend, Oregon.

Writing, painting, taking photos, reading, staying active, learning to play the guitar, hoping Tiger never wins another Major (You Da Man, Jack!), wondering if a reality show about B-List Celebrities Playing Strip Poker to benefit narcoleptics would be a hit, and looking to meet a woman who is looking for something real.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to. It would help if you're really smart, creative, kind, funny, gorgeous, athletic, daring, fun, gorgeous, emotionally generous, perceptive, outdoorsy, spontaneous, gorgeous, loving, talented, musical, easily turned on and multi-orgasmic, honest, looking for a long-term relationship (the healthy kind), generally happy but not a Pollyanna and—although it may seem shallow—gorgeous. And genuinely liking yourself counts for a hell of a lot.
Whether I choose to respond depends on many factors, none of which I am at liberty to display to the world of OK Cupid, per court order.
