My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved to Portland from Chicago. I'm expecting an onslaught of hate from the locals any time now...

I'm on here because I got tired of trying to meet girls at the bar. You girls at the bar are meeting 'two-drink-me.' Two drink me loves to dance, and knows a magic trick. Zero drink me loves biographies and has serious opinions about wildlife. Five drink me enjoys dancing with wildlife.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like many of you I suppose, I've changed careers more than once. My first career choice as a kid was to be a professional Oreo taster. After Nabisco would simply not open this position to me, I begrudgingly widened my scope and worked as a chef for a while. I've cooked for many years and have worked with extremely talented chefs, including James Beard winners and even a Michelin starred chef. Being a chef though is life-consuming... there is simply too much sacrifice to be had for a low-paying, thankless, and draining occupation. If I was still a cook I would never have had time to make this profile.

I am now a software engineer and work in a cushy office job building cool software and helping people with their endless computer problems. Did you click on a link and break your laptop? I can probably help :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Boiling water. Washing dishes (for real). Configuring a web server. Starting books but never finishing them. Drinking IPAs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, easy-going, and sometimes will talk endlessly about something I'm interested in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As far as music is concerned, it really depends on my mood. Some days I like old blues and motown: B.B. King, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Muddy Waters. Other days I'm in the mood for metal: Opeth, At the Gates, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage. Some artists/bands I can always listen to: James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Van Morrison, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Hall & Oats and more.

I spent a lot of time in school reading books on philosophy and political theory. These texts helped shape the way I view and understand the world today, but I read a lot less now than should.

Creating a list of movies and tv shows that I like is a somewhat daunting task on this not-entirely-sober Friday evening.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends are an obvious choice.
As much as I hate to say it: My PC and cell phone
A sharp chef's knife
Something else random and ironic that I could absolutely live without but sounds funny.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can teach my cat to solve a Rubik's cube. What I'm doing with my life. Social and political issues. Whether or not OkCupid will really help me find companionship.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to go out with friends or co-workers for happy hour. I'm also totally down with staying in, watching a movie, playing board games, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a great sense of humor but I'm terrible at telling jokes.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't have quotes like "Work hard, play hard" or "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best." or any variations of this kind. If I can't handle you at your worst, maybe you should stop being so terrible.
