Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My self summary goes something like this. I am a delight to be
around, yet sometimes caustic, prone for engagement, requires
attention but easily amused, been labeled at times medium to high
maintenance (but that's just their opinion).
Not much of a TV watcher but a compulsive reader be that in fits
and stops, a full-on sun worshiper, which leads in to I'm happiest
in flip-flops, addicted to travel and new cultures, drawn to water
and being exposed to new things. I'm artistically challenged but I
try to play the guitar. I enjoy cooking but I am wary of baking for
some strange reason - perhaps I like to play with my food?
When it comes to a partner, I think real beauty is in the
imperfections, the little quirks that make a person unique.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Breathing oxygen, putting one foot in front of the other, getting
paid to think like a fish, answering lots of silly questions on
this website, looking out the window at the onslaught of rain, and
wondering how much a plane ticket is to some far off tropical
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping a chin up and rolling with whatever life throws at you.
Seeing both sides of the story whatever that may be. Making lists
and losing them. Being upfront, honest, speaking my mind.. I may be
good at it but it has a way of making my life a headache at times.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Typically my blue eyes and my propensity for banter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books: the Brothers K, Life of Pi, Dune, the God of Small
Things, the Monkey Wrench Gang.
Movies: Arizona Dreams, The Big Lebowski, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Dead Man, Apocalypse Now, Drive, Baraka
Music: I should have bought the t-shirt " I listen to bands that
don't even exist yet".
Right now the playlist gravitates often to Ween, Grizzly Bear,
Menomena, Run On Sentence, Jose Gonzalez, Radiohead, DeVotchka, Old
97s, old Kings of Leon (just to be a snob about it), GusGus and of
course some of the classics like Pink Floyd.
Food: Mmmm, I love food, all kinds of food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- Coffee with a little cream and sugar
-- Good books
-- Good conversation
-- Beautiful beaches with warm water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to travel to next. The news of the day. When I buy a house
what it will look like, what colors I'll paint the walls. People
watching and creating stories of what I see around me. The dream
from last night that stays on the tip of my tongue and the back
corner of my mind.
I can be a deep thinker and now and again can think about the big
picture all at once, but then I forget to blink and people wonder
if I'm medicated.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A tad restless and wanting to do something social. Decompressing
over an adult beverage. Avoiding grocery shopping.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're quirky, willing to laugh at yourself (and at me), and
enjoy meeting new people. And, well, you'd rather just meet even be
it briefly rather than exchange a long litany of emails to pass the
