Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would say that I am a positive person and I like to surround
myself with positive people. I generally have a self deprecating
sense of humor and refuse to take myself too seriously. I like to
think that I'm pretty funny/fun to be around, myself. I might be
biased though. A fair assessment would be that I'm pretty dorky. I
Ultimately, I'm looking to meet someone who I enjoy spending time
with. I'm open to things developing with the right person. I'd
appreciate someone who is open to exploring new interests/ is
altogether awesome. Just saying.
*Edit - So last weekend I had an epiphany. It was Sunday, and by
mere happenstance all my relations and close friends were tied up
with their significant others. Rather than sit around my apartment,
I decided to take a decent length drive in search of these great
tacos I'd heard about in the valley. The experience was enjoyable,
but rather lonely. It dawned on me on the way home that this could
have been a great adventure to have with someone I cared about. You
know the whole thing: jokes, laughter, etc. That's where I'd really
like to get with someone (not just anyone). I think it would make a
huge difference in my life to have someone who could turn little
trivial trips into great memories.
Things I like (off the top of my head):
Live Comedy - One of my favorite things to do. I have a great time,
Walks - I enjoy exploring my neighborhood and others on foot. I
could make a day out of it. It makes me happy. My friends think
it's weird. Whatever.
Cycling - After a month or so of research, I just bought my first
serious road bike. I have some grand delusions about racing
eventually. I recently looked at myself in the mirror with all of
my gear on, and totally wanted to give myself a wedgie. You gotta
do what you gotta do though.
Bar crawls - This one probably won't help me win any points on
here, as most women seem to stress the desire for maturity in their
profiles, but it's the truth. Here's the thing, you have your
standard drinking and merriment with friends, but then you throw in
this element of adventure. Boom. It's kind of difficult to imagine
many things that are more fun. I'm not that old yet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm focused on simplicity. Just trying to enjoy life and

development at an accounting firm in Century City. Held a similar

I am strongly considering getting an MBA sometime soon.
