Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think I am a good guy. I adore my family, friends, work, travel,
novelty, the outdoors, green lights, affection, snuggling, honesty,
charity, food, laughing, reading, travel, hot sauce, coffee,
fleeting moments of insight, and the color blue.
I feel like people need to cover the normal, primary bases of
affection in this part. Who doesn't want to put their best foot
forward? I guess I can disclose my inadequacies from here on out...
But really I don't know you that well. Technically you are a
stranger and I shouldn't even be taking candy from the likes of
you. But we might hit it off. Unless you're not pleased with the
narrative so far. JK. You are. I know you are. You may have been
forming some critical sentiments... but you're still reading. I'm
not even asking you to at this point. Yet, here you are reading in
an almost smug defiant manner. That's kinda hot. Okay, well,
clearly you are flirting with me if you are still reading, when you
know how it makes me feel. Actually, you are coming on a little
strong now... Wow, you are persistent. Have you been drinking? Are
you always this forward? I'm almost a little uncomfortable now.
Perhaps You should consider messaging me your apology.
Sorry, I might have read that situation wrong. Now, I'm the one
sounding forward. I didn't mean to offend your sense of Jane
Austen-esque propriety, you are likely a very mild mannered person
who reads a lot. Well, clearly you do. I already like that about
you. That's kind of cute...
This writing about yourself thing sure feels like slow-motion
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Since finishing grad school I have had the luxury of helping others
playfully muddle through existential conflicts and life's
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a prolific speculator. I have always been great at that,
making puppets, street performing, drums, sculpting, drawing and
art in general (because I love it). Also, I'm good at looking busy,
appearing deep in thought, and getting along with animals who also
look deep in thought, and self defeating magic tricks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, dimples, humor, familiar voice, confident stride,
vocabulary and fucked up hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Untangle this knot:
Been into the band The Cat Empire recently. Love the pixies, Wye
Oak, wax tailor, devotchka, magnetic fields, 80's, Lambchop, Tom
Waits Lana Del Rey, ....
I've learned that music serves a different function for each
gender, weird huh?
The unbearable lightness of being,
anything by Alan Watts, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Paul Ekman,
Sedaris, Dr. Seuss, Silverstein, Christopher Moore, Stumbling on
Happiness, Heinze Kohut, errrr ummmmm......
Movies: Big Lebowski, Being there, The man who would be king, the
three amigos, Road side profits, top secret,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Lists of things that I can not do without,
words with which to fill out those lists,
content to organize my words for those lists,
An intellectual hunger to complete lists,
A false sense of superiority in avoiding an honest answer to such
A genuine sense of regret for not answering questions when I reach
the last one. Damn it. That's like...seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What other people might be thinking about or what they might think
I'm thinking about them, or what I think they might think about
what I'm thinking they are thinking. I also wonder about the
utility of Oxford commas. maybe someday meeting a woman that I can
share life, affection, challenges, adventures, and maybe one day
family. Someone to live an authentically beautiful life with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
.....doing top secret things that are on a need to know basis only.
Very Top Secret.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually like long walks on the beach.
