Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This will most likely read as a random assortment of thoughts and
facts about myself, but bear with me. :)
6'3" INFP, though I'm oddly talkative.
I love adventures. Outdoors, indoors, wherever. I love to hike and
camp and just get out in nature whenever I can (closest thing I
have to a "church").
Not religious or too terribly spiritual. Try to take care of
myself. Quirky, a bit overly introspective at (most) times. Good at
both late night chats and early morning escapades.
I'm an emotional dude, and I mean that in the best way possible. I
think and feel very deeply about a lot of things, and I spend an
inordinate amount of time exploring those feelings and seeing what
I can learn about myself through them. That said, I have found that
I have a deep well of love and affection that I want nothing more
than to tap and share with those closest to me.
Simplicity is key. I think so much of life we end up consuming
ourselves with things and ideas that don't ultimately fulfill us.
I'm not perfect at this, certainly, but it is a conscious intention
of mine to immerse myself in those aspects of life (thought, love,
friendship, etc.) that most completely nourish my soul, while
tossing aside those other aspects (money, status, power) that
don't. I've found that eschewing complexity opens so much mental
space (and time) for connection with others, and I'm hoping to find
people who share these sensibilities.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just working as an accountant and doing some school part-time; in
the process of getting my CPA. :/
Still figuring it all out, honestly, but I never subscribed to the
whole "linear life" concept anyway. I'm a long-term idealist but
short-term realist, so always trying to balance lofty ambitions
with the day-to-day necessities I frequently overlook.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being completely impulsive and random. (That's my aforementioned
I also have a really dry, somewhat cynical sense of humor. Oh yeah,
also dad jokes and puns (in the moment, though; it's not like I
have them stockpiled :P).
I'm also extremely over-analytical, which has its benefits and
downfalls. I'm working on curbing the latter somewhat, but it's a
useful skill nonetheless. However, I'm also extremely goofy and
find myself not taking things TOO seriously most of the time. (Side
note: I answered a question on here that asked if I was intense or
carefree, and I was sorely disappointed that I couldn't check
both... It's a weird combo, I know.) So yeah, I'm "intensely
carefree". I'll let you figure that one out, because I sure as hell
Attaching emoticons to just about everything. (Still not 100% on
board with the emoji game, but I'm getting there.) :)
Trying to figure out what "Match %" really means, in a realistic
sense. I'll figure your scheme out one of these days, OKCupid.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. I've been told it's simultaneously goofy and a smirk
(while being entirely genuine), which, in a lot of ways, pretty
much sums up my personality.
Honestly, though, there's a good chance that won't be the FIRST
thing you see, unless I'm in a particularly chipper mood. I'm
relatively tall, so if we're in a crowd, you'll probably notice my
head above everybody else's shoulders. There's also my dashing good
looks (:P), but that's ultimately for you to decide. So yeah, we'll
go with "tall" here, haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My tastes pretty much cover the whole spectrum with most of these,
as long as it is quality or seems like a good time. Everything has
its place. I do, however, tend to prefer books, movies, shows, and
music that have some deeper meaning and/or point. Yeah, that's
totally oversimplifying any sort of notion of taste, but that's the
gist, for the most part. (Sorry for being that guy...)
Let's see if I can do a basic rundown of the high points,
Books: Love Steinbeck, Hemingway, Kerouac. I read a lot of
nonfiction nowadays (thanks, grad school). Travel writing is a
personal favorite, as well as stuff with a personal development
bent (guilty pleasure).
Movies: Foreign/indie, documentaries, and classics mostly. Huge
film noir buff. I'm definitely down for blockbusters and other fare
as well, though (counting down the days until Star Wars! :) ) Also,
Wet Hot American Summer might be the best thing ever made.
TV: Arrested Development, HIMYM, The Newsroom, Parks and Rec, 30
Rock, 30 for 30 documentaries, I actually haven't had cable in,
like, 7 years, so I'm pretty bad about watching shows
Music: I go through phases, covering pretty much every genre
imaginable. Been in a weird post-punk/alternative/trip hop mood of
late. Last month I was on a huge soul kick (love me some Al Green
and Otis Redding). I'm sure I'll be on to something new by next
week. Two favorite bands are Death Cab for Cutie and the Beatles
(Modest Mouse is a close 3rd). So yeah, I'm all over the place
Food: Everything, duh. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends/people/love/community 😄 ❤️
2. Sophomoric humor and/or dry wit 💩 🔥
3. Coffee ☕️
4. Nature/Hiking ⛺️
5. Music 🎶
6. My cat, LC 😸
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to do with my life; Ways that I can make the world a
better place both for myself and others; Random, inconsequential,
theoretical things that I have no business messing with (mental
masturbation, if you will); What I'm going to eat for lunch/dinner;
the appropriate level of seriousness for a given situation (I'm
always either too serious or goofy, rarely in-between)
A big thing of late has been an inner dialogue between thought and
action, namely, whether the proper approach to a fulfilled life
comes from thoughtful planning followed by execution or through
more adventurous means, by acting first and finding
justification/direction later as a result. It's an interesting
dilemma; I would love to hear your thoughts. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually going with whatever feels right. I may go out with friends,
may hang out at a coffee shop and work, or may just head home to
watch a movie or read a book.

you're cool, fun, confident, energetic, and outgoing, don't get
stressed easily, think that your friends are more important than

As for me, I can't honestly say that I'm all of the above

but I've found that people who do possess them tend to bring out
the best in me, and most people seem to like that version of
