My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings! I'm Alex. Dependable, loyal, (uncannily) well-prepared--I guess I stuck with the whole Boy Scout thing long enough before I found theater and dropped out that some of it rubbed off.

My interests are all over the place: a lot of the traditionally nerdy things, the aforementioned theater, cooking (I really need to play more with molecular gastronomy to fulfill my inner mad scientist), traveling (speaking of things I really need to do more of), etc. I consume a lot of media; I'm fascinated by narrative forms and how audiences and those forms interact with each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On the work side of things, I work full-time in marketing and engagement. I also do some demonstration and project management work on the side for a previous employer when I have time.

After 5pm, I can usually be found either in a theater working on a play, at home catching up on reading / TV / video games / assorted projects, or--if it's Wednesday--at my friendly neighborhood comic shop.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a problem solver; I'm good at reading people and seeing patterns, so working out how to get from point A to point B comes fairly naturally to me. I'm also pretty handy in the kitchen (I've been playing lately with boozy desserts--Dark & Stormy cupcakes and Black Russian cheesecake have each been recent, successful experiments), and I know my way around tools.

Honestly, I'm one of those fake-it-until-you-make-it types. If there's a need for me to take charge of something else, I'll figure it out; that said, if someone else in the room knows what they're doing, I don't have to be in charge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It really depends on the situation. The top three first impressions, "quiet," "calm," and "scary smart." I've had people who know me longer ask me how I manage to be so patient and comment that they can't imagine what I'm like mad but are sure they never want to see it.

Ultimately, I get compared to The Doctor and Superman a lot; I guess I scream "homeless alien." (And Ant-Man, once. I actually really liked that one.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Pretty much any of these lists could go on ad nauseam, so each is the first few things to come to mind and is by no means comprehensive.

Print
Books: American Gods is my favorite. I love Gaiman's work in general, as well as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Don Quixote, The House of the Spirits, and the A Song of Ice and Fire series, to name a few.

Plays: Anything by George Bernard Shaw or Bertolt Brecht; Picasso at the Lapin Agile, No Exit, Peer Gynt, When the Rain Stops Falling, Glengarry Glen Ross. And musicals. Like most musical fans, Sondheim is up there for me (although my top three Sondheim musicals are not most people's); no current composer/lyricist/etc excites me more than Lin-Manuel Miranda (who most people probably know from being on House).

Comics: In terms of current books, this fluctuates a lot. Snyder's Batman run never lets me down, and I think Ales Kot's Secret Avengers may be the most tragically overlooked Big Two book out there. I read a lot of Fraction, Hickman, and Remender, and I am still in denial over the end of Azzarello and Chiang's Wonder Woman run. Dan Slott's Spider-Man and Silver Surfer, as well as Skottie Young's Rocket Raccoon, are favorites. All-time favorites include DC: The New Frontier and Doctor Strange: The Oath. I could talk comics for hours.

Film
Movies: Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Inception, Mel Brooks's library, Chris Nolan's Batman films, Marvel's Cinematic Universe, Ratatouille, 12 Angry Men, Sweet Smell of Success, Ghostbusters, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, James Bond movies, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer, Scott Pilgrim, Star Trek.

Television: Chuck, Castle, Psych, The Big Bang Theory, House, Dexter, Seinfeld, Frasier, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, Fringe, The West Wing, Warehouse 13, Get Smart, Batman '66, Arrow, The Flash, Doctor Who, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, and various cartoons that I grew up on including Rocky and Bullwinkle, Pinky and the Brain, and nearly everything Bruce Timm did.

Other
Music: This is just all over the place for me. I really like a little bit of a lot of things. I own all of Queen's and the Beatles' studio albums. People tend to want to swipe playlists from me. I'm also a big musical theater fan, and that opens up a whole other set of favorites.

Podcasts: My Brother, My Brother, and Me and The Adventure Zone are probably the two I look forward to most. I also love Judge John Hodgman, Sawbones, The Alton Browncast, Assemble After Dark, and the Comic Vine weekly podcast.

Food: Favorites include Italian, Thai, Indian, and Chinese.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Proper Hydration.
2. Friends to get out and do things with.
3. Aforementioned things to do.
4. My media library.
5. Organic molecules.
6. Wit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Traveling, new projects, everyday fictions, new things I want to cook, things I need to read/watch/listen to.

Terrible puns are the currency in which my brain trades.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Any number of places. There's really not a typical Friday night for me. Or any night, really; I could be anywhere between Atlanta and Chattanooga, working on a play, out with friends, at home, visiting family. I like to stay busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, I'll admit just about anything. If there's something you want to know, ask.

Okay, fine. As a kid, I owned a copy of Steve Urkel's Super-Cool Guide to Success. It was my bible. This likely explains everything you've read to this point (if you have made it this long) and gives insight into the fact that my grasp of humor as a kid was tenuous.
