Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm an asshole. I'm a silly, flighty, chick who is in love with
her career and life.
I'm a career-oriented person. The last guy I dated accused me of
liking my work more than I liked him. I guess he was right.
I've had this profile for so long, I wonder if it still does me
justice. Perhaps I should fall in love in okCupid because it has
definitely outlasted all my relationships thus far.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Web developer by day, game developer by night. I like programming.
Right now I work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning new things, figuring stuff out, crunching numbers, and
listening are things I am pretty damn nifty at doing. I don't know
if any of those items, except for the last, will help me on a
dating site. Guess I will have to wait and see.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no fucking idea. I would like to say my wonderful
personality and sharp wit, others would say my rear. Totally
depends on the situation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I've been told that I have bad taste and I'm completely fine with
Elizabeth Hayden is a Fave. My Side of the Mountain
by Jean Craighead George is the book I read a million times as a

are my favorite movies.
For musical tastes, it is mostly industrial

it is easier than going through everything. A few specific examples

, Vive La Fête
, Frédéric Chopin
Might Be Giants
, The Cat Empire
, and Stevie Wonder
I enjoy sushi, Korean barbeque, and almost anything with
strawberries, garlic, or onions (haven't had anything with all
three). I love food that is well/heavily spiced like Indian and
Mexican. I love trying out new spices and that reflects in my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't think that a person should be attached to anything really,
but since this is the material world: Sustenance, good health, my
ragdoll of ~23 years, REAMS of paper, tons of pencils and engaging
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I make what I do better? Can my code be cleaner? Can I find
a better way to organize my office? Will I ever get my yellow belt
in karate? Will I ever be a dancer?
Music and dancing is big in my book. I go out dancing for myself
and I tend to avoid dancing with other people unless they are
gorgeous (still waiting on this one) or will at least try.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at a bar having drinks with friends, wandering around town, or
finishing up a project at home. I love going out but nothing feels
better than waking up on Saturday and knowing that you don't have
any deadlines looming over your head.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can live without my cell phone and I often forget where I put it.
If it wasn't for solitaire and Pandora, I probably wouldn't use it
daily. Despite working with technology, I don't really live a high
tech, highly connected life.
I adore brunettes, there is something illogical about the way that
a man's hair color can blindside me.
When I am working too hard on a project, I start having awful
dreams that are nothing but a screen with code on it and a command
prompt blinking in the darkness.
My hair is actually curly right now, I should upload a picture.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
DO NOT start your message with 'Hi Beautiful', 'Hi Sweetheart', 'Hi
Gorgeous', 'Hi Love', or anything like that. I see it as a red flag
and my reply will probably be 'No'. I've seen it so much on this
site that it is a huge red flag that screams 'I see you have tits,
you should show them to me'.
If the adjectives deliberate, analytical and ambitious apply to
you, then that is a good sign. If my personality intrigues you as
well as my looks, that helps too. If you love wandering around and
having adventures, then maybe you should shoot me a message.
Also if you have hair. If you're bald, you better be pretty damn
awesome to make up for it.
Please, save us both some time and look at the
portion of my profile that compares the two of us. This helps to
discern our compatibility. If our match scores are less than
50% we WON'T get along--just a thought. Also, using proper
structure in your message gets you bonus points.
