Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Other people's perceptions often do not match a person's own
perception of himself or herself. Hopefully with time and maturity,
a person becomes more aware of himself or herself and is more open
about his or her true self (for better or worse).
I don't really like describing myself, but I 'll give it a try.

I was born and raised in San Francisco. I spent most of my life in
the Bay Area except when I was going to school. When I'm not
working, my activities involve movies, spending time with friends
for coffee, checking out new restaurants and happy hour places. The
other thing that I like to do is to go to small music venues (Cafe
Du Nord, Great American Music Hall, Rickshaw Stop, Bottom of the
Hill, etc.) and listen to local or up and coming bands.
I'm not much of an outdoors person and have never been camping at
all. The closest thing was pitching a tent in the backyard as a
kid. When I was in college and the professors would want to hold
class outside with the students sitting on the grass, my first
thought was always: "What are you--insane? What was the purpose of
spending my tuition money on classrooms and chairs?" I really am
more of a city person.
I think of myself as easygoing, down to earth, good natured, and
generally optimistic. I also think I am a good listener and easy to
talk to. Maybe the list is somewhat boring, but I believe that
these traits are all true.
I try to look for the good in life, but still try to prepare for
the bad in case it happens. I try to be a well-grounded person.

Food: All types of food. If you are a strict vegan, I'm not going

used to eating things that vegans could not comprehend.
Movies: 500 Days of Summer, Cinema Paradiso, Kung Fu Hustle, 200
lb. Beauty, Arahan, Groundhog Day (I appreciate the "redemption"
aspect of the main character). The occasional summer blockbuster,
but mostly independent and foreign films.
Music: Pop, indie, contemporary, jazz. Lifehouse, Maroon 5, Lady
Gaga, Prince, The Police. Heavy metal is definitely off the list.
