Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an introverted nerd. I don't have the best social skills, but
I'm learning and I get by. If you're an extrovert, that's fine, but
don't expect me to go to every party. I can be blunt and forward,
not in the sense that I'm a tactless asshole, but in the sense that
I don't like to play games or read-between-the-lines and I don't
want to make others feel they have to do that to understand
I'm always open to try new things—to me, the specific activity is a

Books: Mostly science fiction. Lately, Dune, Hyperion, The Martian,
and Foundation. Sometimes I read non-fiction that interests me,
like Demon-Haunted World and Thinking, Fast and Slow. Of course I
read A Song of Ice and Fire, but other than that the fantasy genre
is a bit of guilty pleasure of mine—a lot of R. A. Salvatore books
that I loved when I was younger.
Shows: Adventure Time, The Wire, Scrubs, Game of Thrones, Arrested
Music: Bob Dylan, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Smiths, The
Decemberists, The Antlers, Voxtrot, Neutral Milk Hotel, Lil B

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My food scale

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be spending my time alone, reading, or I might be spending
my time with a few close friends, talking, drinking, watching a
movie, playing boardgames or Magic: The Gathering. Depends on how
much social energy I have saved up!
