Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there fellow San Diegans (or whatever we're supposed to call
ourselves...). I'm not your typical gay guy. Now, don't get me
wrong...I love theatre, the arts, gourmet cooking, and have even
put my hand to Hawaiian Quilting once or twice or three times
(okay, it's up there...I guess I might have some typical traits!).
What I'm trying to say, is I'm multi-faceted. Yep, I'm definitely
gay, but it doesn't define me or what I like. Gender roles and the
like be damned; after all, "sex" is binary and "gender" is
socialization. I cook, I clean (more cooking, less cleaning!), I
have an exhaustive supply of flannel/plaid shirts, I study hard, I
hike and camp, 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? Alright already, let's go
for a drink or coffee!

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.

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 that is grad school.
Whether fish tacos at Oscars, drinks at Gossip, a play on campus,
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 :)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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.
Risk it. And send that message already...
