Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After a few messages, she writes, "I actually just read your
profile and you seem like an interestingly weird dude." That's apt
enough for a starter.
I'm an art schooled, hobbyist photographer, and a sports loving,
historically nomadic cook who's city-conditioned but rural at
heart. Spent most of the last five years in New Orleans. I'm kind
of a handful and not always fit for public consumption. But when I
find folks I love (friends or otherwise), I love em real damn hard.
I'm emotionally very close to the surface with people I hold dear.
The number of those people in my life seems modest to me, but I'm
thankful for them. My friends say I'm outgoing and extroverted, and
I think they have that impression because I adore them, so of
course. Needless to say, nobody adores everybody. I do prefer women
for general company, on balance. But I'm particular. I might not
like all your friends. I can rap more Outkast verses than any white
boy you know, and I can sing more Dwight Yoakam than anybody you
know, and if you hang around me long enough I will do both. I also
whistle and drum on things a lot. I'm one of those intensely
musical people who is not a musician, and likely could not be due
to the lifestyle. That said, I intend to own a drumkit one day, in
a shack in the woods, where I will bash and sweat out my
"To note that the thing I call my individuality is only a
pattern or dance, that is what it means when one discovers
how long it takes for the atoms of the brain to be replaced by
other atoms. The atoms come into my brain, dance a dance, and then
go out—there are always new atoms, but always doing the same dance,
remembering what the dance was yesterday." (Richard Feynman)
"My personality is full of contradictions. I am genuinely
disinterested in fitting-in, but also feel the need to be liked by
everyone. I find people fascinating, but don't like most of them."

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"We probably got in the business in the first place because
interacting with normal people in a normal workspace was impossible
or unattractive to us. Many of us don't know how to behave in
public—and don't care to find out . . . What's been lost in all
this food-crazy, chef- and restaurant obsessed nonsense is that
cooking is hard." (Anthony Bourdain)
"When asked to describe their lives, what's interesting is how few
people said, "mess". It's probably the best answer." (Tyler Cowen)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Walks too fast, sweats too much, probably unnerving candor.
Some people seem to think I'm a very serious guy (my resting face
is probably pretty deadpan), but then I make some other people
laugh pretty hard. It can take awhile for me to get silly with new
people, not that it's a boast. I'd actually rather let my freak
flag fly from the jump, but I have a hard time with it, and I try
not to get silly in the group setting. Once I'm comfy, who knows
what you'll get. I'm deeply weird in numerous ways. People say
that, I mean it. I could tell you a few stories, but I probably
won't. I've figured out how to be myself socially, but I stay wary
and distant until that first warm moment happens with someone. In
groups, I tend to mostly listen and only chime in when the time is
right. I'm not a big fan of parties or crowds of people.
Wit was an outsourced answer. What a nice thing to say. Often been
called sweet and intense.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
My least favorite question of all time must be, "What kind of music
do you like?"
Please don't ask me that. I like good art of all sorts and have
spent countless hours of my life searching it out, and it doesn't
matter anyway. I fell deep in love with someone who I thought had
questionable taste in most everything. It really doesn't matter.
Now go pick a record.
Okay, maybe it matters. I'm willing to discuss the possibility. It
doesn't matter until it does matter, I guess. Like when I can't
deal with Taylor Swift, and you can't deal with Faith No More.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

feels like a damn huge waterfall, most of the time. That

person), how I should take more pictures

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You aren't into Jesus, you have long hair, or you don't wear makeup
everyday. I don't mind when women use makeup, but it's attractive
if you can leave the house without it.
And don't ask me my sign. I'm a do not disturb sign.
