Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am high-energy and inquisitive. I enjoy getting worked up about
social and political issues. Currently it's cheesy television like
The Blacklist and Elementary. My tolerance is low for corny
one-liners and predictable plots.
I like to be outside: playing tennis, walking the block, hiking,
rolling in leaves. I get so focused in the moment that I lose track
of time. When I'm stressed I work too hard. I need frequent
reality-checks: "The rest of the world will survive but... will
I communicate in a candid manner and my active listening skills are
(usually) superb. I'm looking for a guy who is upfront and who
appreciates someone genuine. It's important for you to be naturally
calm and decently emotionally mature.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a BS in chemistry and I'm getting certified to teach
chemistry. I tutor privately and I substitute in Montgomery County
Public Schools. This semester I'm long-term subbing in Algebra 1.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ditching the plan. It's both a weakness and a strength.
Ping Pong and Boggle.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make intense eye contact when I'm surprised or interested.
My smile is "magnetic."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. humor I understand.
3. alone time.
5. friendly competition.
6. second chances.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
woah. I analyze everything. I sit very still when I think. It takes
a while to unscramble reality.
I constantly collect information. When I visit the library I walk
up and down random isles to read book titles. I treat TED Talks
like Pringles -- once I pop I just can't stop.
I have no interest in thinking about:
sports teams/fantasy football
pop culture references (unless you're ready to explain them)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Baking pumpkin bread, muffins or chocolate chip cookies.
