Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TL;DR I'm a loner who needs human contact and tasty food. I'm an
INFP, immigrant, only child.. who moved around a lot as a
I've been lucky to meet lots of interesting people here, but the
point of poly-saturation has come upon me. So you should know that
my time is sliced pretty thin!
However… definitely message me if you'd be open to playing with one
of my existing partnerships :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
what i should have been doing all my life thus far.. luckily my
current job is getting me there.
trying to escape the present indefinite.
Currently reading: Goldfinch! I loved Secret History and Little
Friend.. so I'm obviously pretty excited about this… There's also a
pile of five or six books in various state of completion. A few
books I've managed to finish reading recently: Altered Carbon,
2666, The Secret History (which I really can't recommend highly
enough). I'm kind of an omnivorous reader, so don't get me
Currently listening to: random punk rock / metal that I used dig as
a kid... also picked up a bizarre fascination with "Poinciana" by
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
my bag of frequently neglected skills include: baking bread, a keen
sense of direction, cooking, woolgathering
, haiku, and various
math and computer related forms.
I rarely bother updating this section.. so caveat emptor. Or not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
semi-innocuous guy with cool glasses.. if it gets to that point,
the second thing people notice is that i'm actually quite
entertaining to talk to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
[tl;dr - Since I'm looking for people to meet in the "real" world,
chemistry and pheromones tend to trump common interests.]
stranger, confederacy of dunces, enders game, the sci-fi of neal
stephenson, curious george, bukowski, anything really.

millennium (if you liked that show and listen to jazz, stop reading
and just message me)
listening: hard to pin down, but i wouldn't make it without music
and joy division
, lots of
food: home made bread, anything baked , anything vegetarian
drink: tea and water mostly. If it wasn't made from industrial
grade carcinogens, I would drink Yoohoo every day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hexagons, six packs, devilish numbers, sixth sense.
Oh come on, I thought that was clever...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where all my time goes, my elusive childrens book, why monogamy
doesn't work, the impending technological singularity, the absence
of Friday December 30th 2011 in Samoa
also why my profile is taking this downward drift: from factoids
about me (above this fold) down to descriptive text about things
that i like.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not in a club. but frequently i am at: the neighborhood bar/cafe.
ogle me at the cup-a-joe cafe and then send me a message here.. or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you like Proust and you're female, I'll probably think you're
pretty hot.. I'm pretty shallow that way.
I'm in an open relationship, which you won't be taking the place of
OR butting in on.. So go ahead and send me a message!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
[tl;dr - you want to help me get out of my own head :) ]
this seems like an entertaining day to you: Farmers market in the
morning. Vaguely plan a large meal to cook. Go to the library, get
some books and records. Walk around the city. Stop at a coffee
shop. Listen to records [jazz is good] Smoke weed. Cook.
You don't have to actually have done this, but if this sounds
boring or extreme (from either perspective) then we probably won't
get along too well.
Also you should definitely send me a message if you like playing
the classical piano... I have zero ability, but have been obsessed
with Bach's keyboard music recently.
There's also this, that I wrote awhile back, but I'm still trying
to figure out whether to remove it:
If you're a woman that loves jazz and would be excited to train a
newbie about it's charms. That's any age[*] , not scared off by the
fact that I live with a partner who is cool with seeing other
people. What else? You should be comfortable with your weight, SF
+/- Bart. You should like fantastic (occasionally silly) tales, not
scoff at books with pictures, read books without pictures.
If you're the above you should be replying. If you're not, then we
probably won't get along too well. Unless you're nice blend of
similar/opposite, in which case we might become famous pals!
