Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm bad at "selling" myself.
Okay: I'm a native New Yorker. I have a degree in archaeology and a
degree in English literature. I love science and history.
I try to be laid-back as often as possible. Kinda cynical, kinda
optimistic. Hopeless romantic. Witty and sarcastic. Lover of
Chucks, coffee, and superheroes. I'm very happy in a t-shirt and
hoodie, but can rock a cardigan and bow tie when the chips are
Glitter kinda freaks me out. The smell of sun block makes me
I am funny, creative, and loyal. Since it's a thing now, I'm an
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in the marketing department of a small publishing company
that specializes in children's nonfiction. I'm kinda on the IS side
of things, dealing with metadata most of the time.
I also write. I've had some things published. I blog about movies,
TV shows, and comics.
I'm a storyteller.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...knowing stuff. It sounds weird, I know, but I know a lot of
weird stuff. I'm pretty good at Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit. I'm
the guy my friends call when they need to know the names of the old
guys on The Muppet Show or the name of an actor in an obscure TV
show from the '80s.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I am a big white dude? The red beard maybe. If there's a
crowd, that I'm on the edge of it, out of the way.
When I don't have my glasses on, I get my fair share of compliments
on my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books: I enjoy the classics: Dickens, Austen, the Brontes,
Shakespeare, etc. In terms of modern fiction, I tend to read
mysteries, thrillers, and sci-fi/fantasy. I like YA fiction because
it can get away with stories about wizards and spies and no one
seems to mind. I like comic books.
Favorite Movies: A lot. I love movies of all kinds as long as they
are fun and tell an interesting story. Some favorites include: Star
Wars, Indiana Jones, Disney movies, The Thin Man, and the Marvel
Favorite TV Shows: My taste in TV reflects my taste in books and
movies. Tell me a fun story with interesting characters. I love a
lot of "classic" TV shows and rewatch a lot of them online. Some
modern/current faves: Leverage, Doctor Who, The Flash, Warehouse
13, Parks & Rec, The Big Bang Theory, and Agents of
Favorite Music: I'm not really a big music fan. I mean, I like
music, who doesn't? But, I don't listen to the radio much and tend
to miss a lot of current music. I do love Taylor Swift and I'm not
ashamed to admit it. If I had to pick a genre of music, I'd say my
favorite is classic rock.
Favorite Food: Simple stuff like pizza, burgers, tacos, etc. I'm
not afraid to try new stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sense of humor
Paper and pencil
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Movies, comic books, science, robots, zombies, monkeys, ninjas,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually unwinding with a Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. Of course,
I'd never say no to a drink with an engaging young woman. Just
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have social anxiety. It makes meeting new people difficult. It
gets easier when I know you...but it can still be a hurdle. I'm
working on it. In theory, I'd like to operate a little bit out of
my comfort zone, but it isn't easy.
