My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A friend once said, "Dating is like a box of cereal; you've got to sort through the flakes if you want to find a prize." I thought that was fairly apt.

My goals, perspectives, idiosyncrasies, passions, and predilections are represented throughout the rest of this profile; read on and get to know me a bit. Meanwhile, below is something I wrote for a friend as a goof once, which I liked enough to later plagiarize and use for myself. If reading it amuses you as much as writing it amused me, we may just get along.

Dear Potential Online Match,

Okay...so, here's where we decide what would be the most interesting, thought provoking, and alluring thing to say to express our own initial interest, and possibly entice the other person's. And we hope that what we say comes across in a personable, intelligent, confident, humorous, and, by the grace of god, attractive way, without sounding typical, unimaginative, or self-centered when describing the things that we think are fascinating and important enough about ourselves that someone else would want to know them.

So, what do you need to know about me? Well, I have no ambition and no talents to speak of. I never go to the gym, so I'm fa-fa-fat! I breathe heavily, like a pug-dog in heat, whenever I have to lift myself off the couch in effort to retrieve another tub of mint choco-peanut butter ice cream.

But, thankfully, I have terrific fashion sense; stained undershirts and torn boxer shorts grace my tubby form, as well as my apartment floor, which is what I use for a closet, since my actual closet is filled to the brim with X-Files paraphernalia (Mulder is GOD), old Duran Duran mix tapes, and even older Nintendo and ColecoVision parts.

Let’s see...what else, what else, what else...oh, YEAH! I'm a LOUSY LAY. Terrible lay. I never give a single thought to "her pleasure". I'm really a selfish lover. It's all about ME, ME, ME. But, on the bright side, I can go for a full minute and a half, wheezing like St. Bernard with a collapsed lung all the while, before falling asleep.

Oh, and I'm hung like a kitten on a cold day.

So. If you are enticed by what I've typed here, then I hope you'll respond and tell me something SEXY about yourself. Meanwhile, I'm off to not shower, not brush my teeth, and waste as much time as humanly possible.

Stay out of prison!

Your Potential Match,

- D. "please call in 'Mulder' in bed" P.

p.s. In your response, please say something encouraging. My mother really wants this to work.

________________________________

My approach to dating veers towards the polyamorous. Though I've had monogamous relationships in the past and am open to them, I'm very at home with polyamory, and most of the women I've dated over the past few years have been either poly-single or in open relationships. So if you'd potentially like to date me, that's something you need to be comfortable with. And if ethical non-monogamy is a turn-off for you, or you're on OKC searching for a husband for a conventional marriage, I may not be the fella for ya.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Making movies, writing songs, and fightin' 'round the world."

I'm a filmmaker, musician, and vocal instructor. I'm just wrapping up final post for a feature-length drama that I wrote, produced, and directed. It's my baby, so I'm pretty excited about it. I'm also preparing to produce an online video series on voice training and performance later this month, which I'm also pretty stoked about. I'm pretty lucky in that I love what I do and I get to feel like what I contribute makes some semblance of difference in people's lives, which is a cool feeling. On the side, I'm working on an album of original music, which I plan to start recording in the first quarter of the coming year.

I also produce and narrate audiobooks for the blind with a non-profit in my spare time. It's an awesome organization...they've been doing great work in the same location since 1931. Over 80 years! I think that's kind of bad-ass.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I do a slew of stupid human tricks. I can do an impression of Edith Bunker that'll knock your socks off, and will do an eerily accurate Hannibal Lecter that'll bug you out if you ask me to. I can also make my eyeballs vibrate, which may sound freaky (and it probably is), but it makes my niece and nephew giggle like crazy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book. You just need to know which pages to read.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a cinephile, music fanatic, bookworm, and card-carrying foodie (though I cringe at that latter overused term), I dread the thought of listing all the movies, music, books, and foods that move me and enrich my life. Not that I don't love talking about such things -- I just prefer not to sit here making lists. Suffice to say, I'm drawn to work that surprises me, makes me feel, and makes me think. If you'd like to know what I like, ask away.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I suspect I could live without most anything if I needed to. But a few things I'd sure miss if they were suddenly gone:

Great food and real beer
Film, music, books, other art in its many forms
My guitar
Conversations that start when it's light and end after it's grown dark (or vice versa)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things like this...

"To borrow from the cliché, there are many "us"-es...fragments that make up who we are as a whole, bits and pieces that resemble a whole person when looked at only from a certain angle. We tend to pass different fragments off to different people as the whole "us" -- and most of those people cooperate beautifully by only looking at us from that precise angle that makes the two dimensional representation look like a whole self. It's a wonderful symbiotic cooperative of half truths, an unspoken and unacknowledged rule of conduct between those who pretend to see, and we who pretend to be seen."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm extremely tactile. I like to touch, and be touched. I'm like a cat; if you pet me in just the right spot on the back of the head or neck, I melt.

If you'd like to hear something more private that that, you'll have to work for it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are someone who loves to laugh. Wise asses with sharp wits
are welcomed and encouraged.

...you possess a sense of adventure. Whether that means traveling, learning a new language, trying a new cuisine, jumping out of an airplane, or just wandering around new parts of the City and getting lost on purpose.

...you possess a love for great conversation and debate; you're someone who can sit around for ages, discussing all topics, from the significant to the mundane. I'm a big fan of smart people who can disagree with me.
