Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends call me Peypey and I can eat a hotdog underwater. I am a
professional data nerd, plant-whisperer, self-deprecating being at
ease and unfinished product. I once helped create a community in
which we tried to correct some of god's worst mistakes, like the
tuba. I find pleasure in novelty, self-examination, hyperbole and
delayed gratification. I am a modern gentleman; physically strong,
open-minded, reflective, clear-speaking and friend to all four
legged furry animals. I lose track of time, drink wine, get chatty,
problem solve, talk to strangers, dream about new ventures, yell at
my computer and maintain a close relationship with my family. I
have been a DJ, a small businessman, a community co-creator, a
student of sustainable living and portrait photographer. I've lived
in the Bay Area most of my life - SF for the past 11 years.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I aspire to have a positive outlook on life. I was going to buy a
book on it, but I figured what the hell good would that do. I love
nature. I drove to the beach the other day and I totally rolled the
windows down. I was just checking to see if the beach was really
full of single people taking long walks hand in hand. By the way, I
am totally willing to do that, if I have to. I like being where I
am, contemplating my next move, growing vegetables in my backyard,
hooping and learning all the things that my body can do. I love the
circus arts and spend a couple days a week taking classes focused
on aerial skills (trapeze, fabric), acrobatics (tumbling, basing),
flexibility and strength training. When I'm not swinging 20 feet
above the ground you can usually find me getting down in the
kitchen, in front of 20kw sound systems or some stairs. I live on
the third floor of a victorian and work on the fourth floor of an
office building - so I'm constantly getting down ... stairs. My job
is kind of a secret wrapped in a mystery drizzled in secret mystery
sauce. Sometimes I wish they would tell me what I am supposed to be
doing. But you know, 90% of everything in life is showing up. So
far, I've managed to accumulate 3 weeks of vacation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking like a slow playing record, playing pranks without getting
caught, biting, maintaining my balance on my hand(s) or feet(s),
hamming it up, asking good questions, endlessly reflecting, making
funny faces, learning new things, using my hands and losing myself
in the moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm quite a fetching cad, brimming with optimism and juicy
with expression. I don't know - what are you thinking at this
point? If you can put your impression into words then you should
just skip to the bottom and send me a message. Seriously, do you
really want to know what books I've read?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
[sad face] This is the section of your profile that I typically
skip. I'm really not turned on by a laundry list of things you have
read / seen / heard / tasted. To me, this is the kind of stuff that
you share in person. What's important is that you have been deeply
affected by great music, literature, theater and food. Having said
this, I will digress into a stream-of-consciousness retelling of
various art of note that I have consumed in my lifetime. [/sad

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Navel gazing time to contemplate prosy answers to profile
questions, a mind that craves new ideas, ears for consuming music
and other people's wisdom, a heart for family, lips to give good
conversation and a body to be my vessel throughout this voyage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Thinking I'm thinking too much, how quickly I would regret getting
forearm tattoos, transactive memory, how long I can go without
doing my laundry, am I drinking enough water and how much I respect
women. After all, if it weren't for women, we'd all be men.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am capable of performing one or more of the following activities
on a typical Friday night:
Exercising my mouth with friends over a meal
Making shapes to syncopated rhythms
Soaking at Essex
Bringing chaos to order
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It is unpossible for me to disguise a blush. I secretly like these
unguarded moments despite the momentary embarrassment.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is the section in your profile I read first. Too many OKC
daydreams have been interrupted by lengthy or overly specific wish
lists. What I want is for you to be a playful, expressive learning
machine. That you are attracted to men who make you laugh, are
engaging and thoughtful. But most of all, you have the capacity and
confidence to send a message instead of waiting to hear from me.
Who are you looking for?
