Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a progressive. I'm a vegetarian. I believe in single-provider
health care, the abolishment of the death penalty, and consensus
building. I can't stand cars and love bicycles. (Lately I'm mildly
obsessed with motorcycles as well.) I compost. I believe that we
all have a civic duty to each other and our communities. I
volunteer time for and spend money on causes I believe in. I think
Libertarians are irresponsible tools.
I work hard to be empathic, and I maintain relationships with
people that disagree with me. I'm still trying to understand why a
childhood friend voluntarily served two tours in Iraq. (Update:
said friend is now an organic farmer on a formerly-Amish farm. War
I'm a romantic, but in the Gatsby sort of sense rather than the
Danielle Steel one. I think "Wonder Boys" is one of the greatest
films ever, but I'm worried that it doesn't pass the Bechdel
I'm not religious about anything. I like the gnostic idea that the
serpent was the good force. I think gender stereotypes are
appropriate only if they're your kink.
I'm an existentialist. This does not mean that I see the world as
some sort of horrible, meaningless mechanical progression of
physics. Instead, I see it as an amazing, meaningless, and
beautiful canvas on which we layer even more beautiful and amazing
I believe in responsibility. I looked after my amazing dog for 15
wonderful years, and I'm now finding how little that experience
prepared me for being a dad. At the same time, I sure hope I never
entirely grow up. Peter Pan all the way. I want to hang on to my
beginner's mind. I don't want to think I have all the answers. Life
is messy and fucked up and imprecise and I love it that way.
I am playful, rebellious, and immature.

And the first one tore a picture / Of a dead and hanging man / Who
was kissing foreign fishes / That flew right out from this hands /
And when I put my arms around him / I felt the blushing blood run
through my cheeks / And an eeriness surrounded when his tongue
began to speak / And he said...Oh boy you are so pretty / Enough to
wrap tight in rice-paper string... / And when I finally kissed him
the whole world began to ring
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When I'll be able to run again. Why it took me so long to pick up a
musical instrument for the first time. What it means to feel
entirely queer while presenting as pretty straight, and the unfair
privilege that affords me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You help people. You do something you're passionate about. If
you've figured out how to do both of these in equal measure at the
same time, I'm jealous.
You're queer. You're okay with the fact that I already have a
primary partner, the insanely yummy simplyhessler
. (No, we're not a
package deal.) You already have a primary partner or other support
network of your own.
You're opinionated, but you're cute about it.
