Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ever had one of those days where everything goes RIGHT? I feel like
most days are like that for me. As Kerouac said, "though the flesh
be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious.” The
glass isn't half full - it's almost overflowing, and I sometimes
get confused as to how it got this way.
I don't act or look my age. For example, I like to showcase the
crazy, and those who stick around will probably be the ones who are
equally interesting (or perhaps just plain nuts) :
I carry 3 broken watches with me in my pocket at all times, except
when sleeping or showering, I've written 4 full-length novels, the
old rubber-suit Godzilla sends chills up my spine, I go running
twice a week, I have a deep love for the idea of religion,
my spirit animal would be hot green tea, I enjoy moments of
sardonic introspection (that means laughing at myself), I've never
had a nightmare in my life (at least not that I can remember), and
I firmly believe that you can have too much of a good thing. That's
me in a run-on sentence.
While I've only gotten a handful of successful dates from this
site, I've made some really great, life-changing friends
both near and far. Originally when I joined it wasn't just a dating
site, and I keep that in mind at all times. That's not to say I'm
only looking for friends, just means I try not to go into a date
with any sort of expectations other than good company.
You aren't a soul with a body or a character off of a TV show or a
zodiac sign. You are you, not a metaphor for you. Be that. Own it.
No shame. Lao Tzu was wrong : do not flow like water - flow like
whatever the fuck you are.
INFJ usually, if you're into that sort of thing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Approaching the achievement of a long-term life goal, which is MEGA
exciting for me. I have to ask what defines "doing something with
your life?" I'm breathing, which I'm told is a good thing.
Everything beyond that is negotiable and dependent on what one
qualifies "doing with one's life" as.
I've just finished writing my fourth novel and am currently trying
to get it published, which is an interesting and somewhat
emotionally taxing endeavor, but it's starting to pay off.
The "fun" answer to this question would be "making dreams into
realities and vice versa." I do have a job that pays the bills,
doesn't rule my life, and rarely bleeds over into my personal
My life is defined by me, not by my stuff, my job, where I go, or
my social groups.
Also I like flying around in my ninja-powered dirigible. Bring it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling! (I'm told I'm better at this in person than in
Asking questions. Or maybe I'm not. What is "really good" anyway?
Sometimes I ask the wrong questions, so maybe I'm not "really good"
at that. Then again, does asking the wrong questions make one "not
good" at asking questions?
Don't think this makes me uncertain, just inquisitive. Question the
questions, always. Is it the right question? Is it topical? Who
comes up with these weird WinAmp visual animations?
I've been told I'm a good listener, but that may just be because I
don't enjoy talking about myself (though you wouldn't know it from
the length of this profile...)
Causing explosions. (metaphorical ones) (and sometimes real ones)
Escaping explosions. (not really)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My.... shoes? Hell, I don't know. I'm not "other people." I'm me.
Meet me in real life and tell me what the first thing you notice
about me is, then maybe I'll post it here.
I think it's kinda like saying "don't think of a bear" to someone -
the first thing they tend to think of is a bear. You tell me what
you notice first, no preconceptions.
This is peripherally related : a dude recently thought I was 21.
Seriously. So maybe people notice how young I look? (or maybe that
guy was just clueless. I prefer to think otherwise)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books : As I Lay Dying. Huckleberry Finn. Tripmaster Monkey.
Landfill Meditation. Kafka on the Shore. Blood Meridian. Stuff by
Kerouac, Murakami, McCarthy, & Faulkner. Poetry by Stevens or
Ferlinghetti. I generally like books that manipulate language and
shape narratives more than sci-fi / fantasy adventures.
Movies : Aliens. Spider Man 2 (the older one). Big Trouble in
Little China. Flash Gordon. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Memento. Ghost in the Shell. Leprechaun 4 : In Space. Troll
Music : Course of Empire. Skinny Puppy. The Black Keys. Jurassic 5.
Queen. Thievery Corporation. Indigo Girls. Dead Can Dance.
Soundgarden. Morphine. Brutal Juice. KMFDM. Ghost Shit.
Foods : stuff that doesn't eat me first, excepting mushrooms. I
only consume 4 kingdoms, and 2 of those are not by choice. As a
foodie, I'm pretty easy to please. I do have to say that I was
exposed to Frito Pie only a few short years ago and still think
it's a stroke of genius. On another note, is "Frito Pie" supposed
to be capitalized?
Madagascar Vanilla Red tea. Oh baby, show me the love. Actually if
it's any sort of actual artisan hot tea or rooibos, PUT IT IN MY
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The idea that love is infinite and eternal. I don't know that I
really need much else.
Man, I just realized that sounds really corny, but I'm just gonna
own it. I could list 6 material possessions, but they'd all be lies
because I'd find ways to live without those things. Most humans are
survivors, and I'm no exception.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music, language, dreams, the day's events, girls, the universe and
its relation to science and religion, shutting up and falling,
weird existential / epistemological / phenomenological crap that's
probably a waste of time.
Why people seem to think Fort Worth or Dallas are light years from
Denton. Good company can make even the long distances worth the
I recently spent about 10 minutes in my kitchen trying to figure
out how to translate into text the sound a plastic tupperware
container makes when it opens and closes. Man, that sentence seems
really jacked-up now that I read it.
Also a lot of time is spent pondering where I'm gonna go next in my
blimp that's powered by ninjas on bicycles.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to figure just how much Jell-O it takes to protect a human
being during atmospheric re-entry. If you think you can help, you
like the taste of burnt grape Jell-O, or you have access to a
rocket ship then I could use your help.
This is of course all so I can attract hot nerdy girls with glasses
who ask what I'm doing with all that Jell-O. Hasn't worked yet,
though I'm somehow convinced it will someday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It pains me to admit it, but I've never been to the moon.
Unless of course I have and I just don't remember it. After all,
absolutely anything is possible in an infinite universe, is it
I sorta of like Rick Astley, but only sort of.
Here's an interesting tidbit that's relatively private : I wasn't
physically attracted to any of the three women I fell madly in love
with, at least not at the beginning. With them it was always
charisma, confidence, companionship, and sense of humor. Of course
later they became "hot" to me because, well, that's just how it
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
What am I supposed to say here? "If you're cool?" Bah. Do what you
like. I will say though that if you have an imagination that can
rip the ass off of reality or if you carry 3 broken watches in your
pocket at all times, I will DEFINITELY want to talk to you.
Finally, if you can answer the rhetorical question "what more can a
guy ask for?" you win the prize. (hint : it's from one of the
movies listed above, you probably can't google it though, hee hee).
Even if you can't answer it, you're guaranteed to have something to
talk to me about.
Seriously though, if you've somehow made it through this entire
wall of text, why NOT message me? Obviously you found something of
interest. Or you just wanted to see where all that rambling led
I know lotsa people regard this as a dating site, but I'm here to
meet people in general. If it turns into something more, yee-haw.
If not, it's not like anyone's lost anything.
