Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey everyone, I'm Joe. I'm twenty four. I guess people usually
describe me as being clever, weird, funny. I'd like to use the word
eccentric to describe me, but eccentric in a good way as opposed to
the creepy eccentric guy that no one likes. :) I like girls that
are logical, abstract, and smart. I am not particularly level
headed, so it is good to have a girl around that makes up for it.
Someone that can put my drama into perspective. Which is odd
because usually it is the opposite. At the same time, I don't want
someone that is controlling or bossy because I am pretty tough, and
I do not like to be dominated. I don't like to dominate either. I
shoot for equality in relationships where we allow our strengths to
build each other up, and make up for each other's weaknesses.
I am pretty thin, and girls that like big beefy dudes probably
wouldn't be attracted to me. I am not very tall either. Maybe
looking for someone about 5'6".
I like hiking, running, (sometimes) and boxing. I like to stay in
shape, and become sort of depressed if I don't get enough exercise.
Adventure is good for the soul, and while I am not really serious
about the outdoors, I am a great person to take on a backpacking
trip or a climb of a mountain.
I don't like to talk about my feelings, but I am a good listener,
and a good talker. I want to meet someone that is sort of
intellectual. Sort of intellectual is a good way to describe me.
However, unlike most intellectuals, I love having my views
challenged so that I can argue with people. Its great.
Words often used to describe me:
Thinking about something
Girls like my:
I am Calm, Creative, and Spiritual
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a volunteer coordinator for Multicultural Community Services.
I look for volunteers, write grants, and do outreach for the
agency. In my spare time, I am in a band that is called "The Whales
From Heck" We aren't any good yet, but its fun anyways, sort of
like sex and golf. I sing, play guitar, play drums, play bass, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at writing songs, playing guitar, listening, and
helping people get over traumatic events. I am also good at staying
cool in times of crisis, and being in the outdoors although
fortunately, the times of crisis haven't coincided with me being in
the outdoors as of yet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People notice my half smile/smirk which comes from the fact that I
have naturally upturned lips, and my half closed eyes which make me
look a little bit high. I'm not, but I am prone to discussions that
people have when they're high. Maybe you like those sorts of
discussions, maybe you should message me!

Inventions of the March
, The Fall of Hyperion
Movies: I am not the sort of person that hates movies easily. I
have found that the site "Rotten Tomatoes" gets me pretty well,
even though it is an internet site and no one who works there has
ever met me. My favorite movies include: Snatch, Sleeper, Manhattan, The Graduate, Commando, 70's/80's
Sci Fi and fantasy b movies, The Dark Knight, Pineapple
I like anything that hurts to listen to a little bit. It is very
very rare that a pop song really catches my attention, unless it is
just unabashedly pop, and not trying to be cool at all. Iggy
Pop and the Stooge's Album, raw power, Ice Cube, Operation Ivy, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., Weezer, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighter's first
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could do without almost anything, except for music and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My friendships, how to solve problems, cool riffs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with a small group of friends or maybe one other
friend. Playing guitar maybe.
