Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**Sorry, Denver. Consider this profile abandoned. I've left your
shore-less shores and venturing towards someplace with, well,
shores. Consequentially, I'm not really interested in meeting new
people in CO right now. Thanks for all the fish.**
I'm pretty quiet the first time you meet me, but if I like you, I
warm up quick. Similarly, I'm terrible at being the first at
anything. First one in the pool, first one on the dance floor,
first one to introduce themselves, whatever. But with some healthy
goading, I'm up for just about anything.
I love adventures
and adventuring, just not
in your typical Colorado-an sense. I prefer my death-defying in the
form of castle spelunking, reverse escalator riding, road trip
navigating, and/or various other events that may or maynot someday
get me lost. (Suggestions welcome.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being a velociraptor
astronaut didn't pan
out. These days, I use my half-a-graduate-degree to make sure
teenagers don't set themselves on fire while they're hanging out
otherwise unsupervised. It's pretty swell.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, doing my laundry, double knee falls, puddle jumping,
moon tanning, talking to my parents, cleaning my skates, teaching
said teenagers to be feminists, trying to eat my weight in
I'm really bad
at: whistling, bowling
, mini golf
, folding my laundry,
cleaning my room, t-stops, calling my parents back, remembering to
clean my skates, not reading the comments sections, actually eating
my weight in waffles. Not like any of that stops me from trying.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm the resident adult in the room. Granted, this is because
2/3 of my time is spent hanging out with teenagers. Adults probably
notice that I look like a teenager.
Something not work related? I don't ski. I don't ski, I'm not
paleo, I don't drive a Subaru, I hate my bike. Been there, tried
that, not interested. Sorry? Except for the Subaru part. I'd really
like to learn how to drive stick.

1) Personal reading list for the last few years has basically been
the Hugo Award nominees, though I'm occasionally distracted by
assorted nonfiction. I met my GoodReads 2013 challenge (52 books in
52 weeks) with 3 days to spare.
and the Pussycats
, Mystery Men
, Groundhog Day
, every Christopher
Lambert movie ever made. Post-apocalyptic thrillers and
Music) Things that bleep and boop and crash, theremins and keytars
, Holy Fuck
, The Faint
, Justin Timberlake
, John Zorn

blah blah blah. You don't need to love what I love, you just need
to love that I love it. (People who love "everything but classical
and country" make me nervous.)
d) The only way I'm going paleo is if I actually get to eat a sabre
toothed tiger. My favourite kinds of sushi are uni and ankimo, but
roe is weird. Don't ask me how that works.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, lox & cream cheese, the inevitable heat death of the
universe, my quad skates, Super Mario Brothers: The Movie, platypi.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
. The physics of a perfect turning toe stop. Punny
names. Why liberal hotheads are just as infuriating as conservative
hotheads. Why concept cars never look as good in production as they
did in prototype. Am I really immune to poison ivy? That book I
want to write. Those trips I want to take. Can someone please loan
me a TARDIS?Curling
. Cursing. Socktopi
. Interrobangs. Old
relationships. New relationships. Edison
. The past. The future. Where to go
and how to get there.
Are the people who I score 100% enemy with just people who haven't
answered enough questions, or are they really fervent creationists
who answered Yes to "Do women have an obligation to keep their legs
shaved" or "Most claims of sexual harrassment in the workplace are
LIES made up by a scorned woman"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I read a lot. And if you'll allow me an actual moment of
soulmate searching here, I'm not interested in dating anyone who
doesn't read, or "hasn't read a book in years, lol." Active
literacy is important to me, and to that idealized future-life I'd
like to be living. There. I said it. Take me now, Hipster Police.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
When you think of your perfect relationship, you think "partner,"
You're willing to give things a second, sometimes even a third,
chance. Experience has taught me that first meetups from the
internet are almost universally awkward.
I hate to add this, but after a slew of abusive messages, here it
If it's within your wheelhouse to respond to/take polite rejection
like a sane, mature human being. If you've ever responded to a
woman who didn't respond to one of your messages, or politely
turned you down, with "whatever, bitch!" or something similarly
childish and degrading, please just don't even bother to contact
me. As a sane adult who has the ability to learn from previous
data, I can tell you that we will not be a good match. You will not
neg me into attraction. Hot stove is hot, dude who lashes out at
rejection lashes out.
