Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. How can I possibly sum everything
up in the allotted space?
I'm a bit of an old soul, a music history nerd, quick with a joke
or pun, am organized beyond belief and extremely driven. I might be
one of calmest people you'll meet, yet always motivated by
something. My family is awesome and we are all really close. I love
to cook and have picked up some awesome recipes over the years. I
am a big believer in karma. Park Slope is my home now, and it led
me to start running in the park a few months ago.
Knowing random factoids is a specialty of mine. I really am a good
storyteller; remind me to tell you about the time I ran into Jon
Stewart, or when I was mistaken for a criminal. I'm a romantic. Dog
lover. I play a bunch of instruments. Definitely on the nerdier
side. Smiling is my favorite. Yada yada. You get the idea.
Life is awesome, but I'd like someone to share it with. I am over
the casual dating thing and realize that this is probably the best
way to meet someone who shares these same desires. Perhaps you'd
fancy meeting up over coffee or a drink?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a major television network as a media management
supervisor in content distribution. Basically, you can "thank" me
for being a purveyor of some pretty terrible teen television.
I'm also a musician and writer in the post work hours. And summer
2015 update- I now am in a published book, after having been
interviewed and choice quotes excerpted! The book worm in me cannot
begin to explain the joy in this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Managing to find a correlation between everything happening in life
to something on Seinfeld or Curb.
Knowing what time it is with no clocks nearby.
Being generally affable.
Being quite verbose (see this profile for a glimpse).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(I doubt us getting along is predicated on such favorites, but I
guess it doesn't hurt, and, at worst, these are great first date
Aldous Huxley. George Orwell. C.G. Jung. Chuck Klosterman. Too many
rock biographies to list. Various books on Eastern religions and
philosophy. And what might be my favorite- The Sheltering
Anchorman. Back to the Future. Dazed and Confused.
Seinfeld. How I Met Your Mother. Arrested Development. the
Beatles, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Rush, Byrds, Neil Young, Police,
Zeppelin, Radiohead, Zombies, Dungen, Tame Impala, Oasis, etc
Food is awesome, am I right? I am a loose pescetarian (as chicken
is too awesome to not eat as well) and overall mostly eat healthy,
as we're only given one body in this lifetime, although, you can
put pineapple or coconut in basically anything and I'll eat it.
(...wait, actually, that's a lie. I may love coconut, but I hate
coconut water). And I have quite the affinity for cereal.
Not to mention that I love a good single malt scotch.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Notebook for writing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever I am in the midst of writing.
How Popeye cartoons were really just pro spinach propaganda.
My next meal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Doesn't it seem like everyone on here writes the same thing? "I
love to travel, hang with friends, I'm skeptical of online dating,
here's a picture of me with a tiger..."
Originality goes a long way.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Something I said resonates with you.
You agree to look past the awkwardness of the first few messages
exchanged on here, and I will as well.
Yada, yada, yada...
