My self-summary
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 unhappinesses.

"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." (okc user in Alaska)
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.
whistling, driving, making sandwiches, washing dishes, keeping my balance, running my mouth, the composition part of photography
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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.
You might've heard people say their mind feels like a river? Mine feels like a damn huge waterfall, most of the time. That said,

SPORTS (my favorite escapism), my job, food (literally from one of those families who talks about dinner at breakfast), coworkers, friends, my folks, women, getting the hell outside, beauty, pain, sadness (I have an eye for it, though I'm generally a joyful person), how I should take more pictures
You should message me if
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.
