Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I get why names don't show up on here, but I didn't join a dating
site just to slather myself in mystery. In chocolate? Awesome.
Massage oil? Here’s hoping. But in the end, you'll have to see
through this carefully crafted electronic mystique.
So hey, I'm Nick. I love solving problems and trying to make things
that speak to you. California adopted me in 2008; home is whenever
I’m with my mom and brother, and SF is pretty much what I've got

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

the time I was, with the opportunities I had, that allowed me to
end up here. I get to spend some time dreaming up the future, and a
lot more time realizing it.
I really love to make music. I still pick up the guitar when I have
a chance, but I used to rock out with my cock out OF SIGHT, both as
a gentleman and as one of rock’s foremost cock-safety proponents.

porn or you’re George Clooney, and that role is taken.
- As Nick’s lawyer,§ I am obligated to assert that I have no
knowledge of my client now or ever performing in homosexual
erotica, nice to look at though he may be.
* I mean, what is “reality,” really?
† "Inspired by a true story," as many fictional movies would have
§ Fine, I don’t really have a lawyer. SUE ME. Wait, stop.
