Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a handsome, smart, gay, American Quaker working the summer in
the Shankill. So many labels in that one sentence...labels that are
mere shadowy form, that represent where I'm from rather than who I
am. I'm multi-faceted. Yep, I'm definitely gay, but it doesn't
define me. Straight acting? Camp? Don't get me started. I am who I
am, and if you're trying to put me in rigid boxes, the exercise
will be futile. I have an exhaustive supply of flannel/plaid
shirts, Im always learning about the world around me. I hike, I
travel, I sew, I get in heated and engaging International Relations
discussions. I like my whiskey hard, traveling to Europe, and
cuddling to net flicks (preferably all three at once?). Have I
intrigued you? Life's too short to not take a chance.

Probably the smile. People are forever telling me I smile all the
time. That and my ass. Whoops...did I just go there? ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a voracious reader, love the arts (theatre, museums, concerts,
etc), cooking, long walks on the beach in the evening, and world
peace :) BTW, Jonathan Livingston Seagull is probably the one book
that encompasses my philosophy, my outlook, and my character.
Combine Jonathan and Fletcher and put them in human form...and you
might end up with someone like me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to build dialogue and understanding between people with way
different perceptions and narratives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are my relaxation from the hell of the week. Whether
dinne, drinks, or a play, catching up on my ever growing book pile,
or making mischief...it's always a good time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a paradox. Apparently I'm hard to read and figure out. Someone
once said about me: "There are dogs, and there are horses, and
there are even possums. But, then there are platypuses. You're a
platypus!" I'll own that :)

You've a kind heart, you're curious about the world about you, not
too rigidly delineated, and don't see the world in terms of "boxes
and categories;" If you like my smile; if what I have to say
resonated something within you; If you've ever read with delight
Shel Silverstein's "Where the sidewalk ends" and Tolstoy's "War and
Peace"...Well, clearly we have a lot to talk about. Take a chance.
