Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not good at this. I know everyone says that. Okay. I'll give it
a shot. Everyone says that too, don't they?
My friend Ashley just decided to take this profile away from me and
write it herself.
Hi. Ashley here. Seriously, girls. I have not ONE good reason not
to go out with Darren myself. He is hilariously funny...dashingly
handsome (what?? Dashingly is a totally legitimate word.)...up for
anything...responsible...successful...a good dresser...smells good.
I could really go on... I know what you're thinking...if this
Darren guy's so great, why don't YOU just go out with him yourself?
It's a valid question. Here's the kicker about Darren. And
something to consider before hitting the button to message
While a night out with Darren is a GUARANTEE for a good time, in
the end, this guy is a one-woman man...loyal, steadfast, ready to
actually BE in a relationship...find love and, eventually, settle
down and have some kidlets. And I'm more of a Good-time Charlie.
(Darren just pointed out that I like to THINK of myself as a
good-time Charlie, but really, I'm just a commitment-phobe.
Whatever, Darren...this profile isn't about me.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Let's just say...the guy does well for himself. He can keep your
finances in order AND has a SERIOUS free hamburger connection.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saying yes to things. Laughing. Knowing about obscurely excellent
television shows. Rapping in the car. Staying up late and then
waking up early. Cuddling. Eating breakfast.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Darren is REALLY not happy with this line of questioning. Ima look
over and see what I notice about him first...please hold.
Okay, I'm back.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Pink Floyd, The National, Jay Z, Arcade Fire, Eric Clapton,
My Morning Jacket, Fleetwood Mac, Dylan, Rolling Stones, Billy
Joel...Darren is currently sitting on my couch singing "I Love the
Way You Lie" at the top of his lungs. (He wants me to say that he
was only singing the Eminem part...but I think we ALL know that he
was singing the Rhianna part too.) Take from that what you
Food: An avid eater-outer (Oh MAN, that came out ALL wrong.) he'll
take you to GORGEOUS restaurants all over town. Just make sure that
your order doesn't have peanuts or shellfish if you want to
share...he's allergic. (Darren is under the impression that
"allergies are a turn-off". Ridiculous, I say. This is life or
death here, people.)
Books: He's a busy fella...but when he DOES read, it's mostly
fiction--things that other people recommend--Jeffery Archer
novels...and things with too many numbers on the page.
TV shows and Movies: Y'know...all the usual stuff that smart, funny
people like: The Daily Show, Friday Night Lights, Dr. Katz,
Arrested Development, Family Guy (which is so obvious, he says.)
Modern Family, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia...True Romance,
Goodfellas, The Royal Tenenbaums and Anything with Bill Murray
(Darren would like me to qualify that Bill Murray MAY be a
polarizing topic...and that if you happen to be in the "Bill Murray
is Crummy" Camp, he can live without him--so don't let that stop
you from reaching out.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A well-made cocktail
A comfy couch and someone to cuddle on it with (Darren doesn't want
that to count as two.)
his car. ( I told him that was lame, and quietly, reverently,
Darren replied "I love my car".)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whether retiring at 40 would be really fun or really NOT fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to convince friends to spontaneously go to Atlantic
City...and then settling for Chinese food.
