Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a nice guy looking for a nice girl.
First thing that's important to know is that I'm pretty much a
geek. Now that doesn't mean that I'm only able to communicate with
computers, but rather I have a need to understand how things work
at a fairly deep level. It pretty much affects every aspect of how
I view the world. Some people find this a bit of a turn on, others
run away in horror - simply a matter of what you like.
To illustrate, I'll tell you a little story because I like to tell
stories, and funny ones are the best. When I registered for this
site, I had to go through all of the normal processes - fill in
name, age, etc. PLUS answer a whole bunch of questions so that the
system can match you up with the right people. No problem, I'm
sitting and answering all sorts of questions - some funny, some
pretty serious, others disturbingly personal. No problem, I happily
answer away, and from the recommended matches I get, the system
does a fairly good job.
A few days later I received something in my inbox - my personalized
"Flowchart to your heart", a nice little graph with loads of boxes
and arrows that's going to show me the questions that are
supposedly important to me when looking for a match. Cool!!! I
immediately understood what this was - a distillation of a whole
stack of data designed to minimize the expected number of questions
to ask a woman to determine whether or not she's gf-material. I
take a look, and what's question number 1?? "How often do you
After about 5 minutes of laughing, I think "Really?. That's the
first question I'm supposed to ask a prospective gf?". Now
fortunately, I actually do understand a bit about how these
flowcharts are created, and if you'll buy me a beer I can try to
describe a little about Decision Theory and Data Entropy and
possibly even convince you that your schedule for self-pleasuring
is NOT the main item on my list of your qualities. Truth is -
seeing that question up there is not really from any deep analysis,
but simply comes out of the data. If I answer a few more questions,
I'll probably even knock it off the graph. Buy me another beer and
I can try to describe how I'd change the OKC algorithms so that
stuff like this didn't happen.

Ok, this is a dating website so this is apparently my chance to
show how hip and pretentious I am by listing a whole bunch of bands
no one's heard of, and authors with multiple accented characters in
their name. I think I'm going to choose to pass. The truth is, I
think people put far too much emphasis on this stuff - the fact
that you like The Clash probably has very little to do with being
For the record, I read a lot - not fiction, and not stuff that's
going to impress you. I tend to prefer things on Discovery and
History, and like a good comedy.

How about another story?
A short time ago I started corresponding with this woman who seemed
fairly nice. One day she sent me a picture - a nude one in fact (of
her, but not recent). This woman was in Playboy back in the late
80's - not as a centerfold, but some tiny picture from some article
about college girls. For some reason, it was important to her that
I see it and know of its existence.
Okay, so my reaction, first the good: I liked that what she did was
adventurous, edgy, very personal and a bit sexy. But then there's
the bad: she seemed to have the entire validation for her life tied
up in the fact that 25 years ago some magazine editor liked her
boobs. And somehow this was supposed to be important to me now.
What has she done since then that should be compelling to me - I'm
not really sure ...
Oh, BTW, the point of the story is this: If you're the complete 180
degree opposite of this, THEN you should message me.
