Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You know, I should update this some day. Maybe. I made this years
ago. I'm in school to be a lawyer now so that's my main commitment
for the next many years. Recently single again, so... hello.
People love to make assumptions about me. I love to surprise them.
I've worked very hard to become a person that I really like, and I
don't fit into many stereotypes. I'm a fish swimming upstream. I'm
a soul searcher who makes my own way in life and I value
individualism and finding the truth out for myself. I'm the type
that comes to the fork in the road, and might just sit down and
have a picnic if I don't have anywhere to be. I smell the flowers,
and I think about things that I don't need to think about. I see
things most people don't see. Not in the schizophrenic way, haha! I
just pick up on patterns and idiosyncrasies that most people don't
realize they are ignoring. Patience is absolutely a virtue and the
tortoise wins the race. The softest substance will eventually
overcome the hardest, as my Tai Chi teacher explained to me. Life
is about growth and change and beauty, you must be ready for it. I
have had a lot of unique experiences, but I choose to learn and to
be a positive person. They have given me a strength and insight
that I am very thankful for. I'm open minded but logical. I just
try to take life as it comes, and make a witty joke if I can.
I used to play a lot of video games, and party a lot but I barely
do either anymore. I'm more focused on work now than I have ever
been. I have lived a lot of different ways, and worked probably a
hundred different jobs. I have been a model, a very well paid
credit card marketer, a lumberjack (ok more like assistant park
manager, but we liked to call ourselves lumberjacks), quality
control inspector for a majority of the nation's cream corn supply,
everything in a restaurant, metal recycling, demolition assistant,
and successfully self-sustained unemployed by being a driver for
hire, bargain hunter and reseller, running and promoting parties
and music shows, etc. Not to mention countless other, far less
interesting positions as a temporary worker when times were tough
and I needed to get the bills paid. Now I have a decent setup at a
job I enjoy and get paid pretty well for. I would like to make
enough good investments that I don't have to "work" anymore, but
just spend my time on whatever projects I want to be involved in,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Staying up way too late. Paying bills, playing the drums, looking
for inspiration, being a band manager, and trying to figure out how
to beat the system.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Living outside the box. Defying expectations. Being an honest and
forthright human being. Rolling with the punches.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, my eyes, sense of humor, or being that guy from that band
(even if its not the band I'm in)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of different music. To illustrate the diversity I am
talking about, my favorite bands are Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie,
Phil Ochs, and Death. I like Black Sabbath, Three Six Mafia, Cream,
iwrestledabearonce, Devo, Immortal Technique, Pet Shop Boys, and
Woodie Guthrie. I will usually like anything artistic or
interesting, not a top 40 fan much though sometimes a decent tune
makes it up there.
I read a decent amount, but usually more random articles about
science or current events than books. I tend to accumulate a lot of
random knowledge. I have read books before though.
I love food. I love to cook. I like Chinese, Italian, and Mexican
and I like to try interesting unusual things too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not too prissy. Air, water, food, hope, freedom, and I guess my
hair. I'm pretty attached.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. Time travel, music, contingency plans in
case of zombie apocalypse or other more mundane situations,
philosophy, what I'm going to do when I get rich and how I'm going
to do it, and the human condition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working or hanging out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a lot of secrets, I'm a pretty open person. So if
you're wondering, just ask.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're not the type of person so shortsighted to think you can
judge a person by a few pictures and words on a page but are
enticed at all and want to know more. If you don't play games,
because I don't. If you want a real guy to take you on a date, or
just hang out. If you're not insane in the 'not fun' kind of way.
I'm pretty nice and very honest, so there's no harm in asking if
you want to know, or just saying hi if you want to chat. Holler!
