Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I am a single guy, 26, looking for casual dating with the
eventual goal of a relationship. So really what I'm interested is
some no pressure talking and getting to know one another. I also am
serious about meting in real life rather than nonstop messages, and
do not very much appreciate flakes. Hopefully this is appealing
enough thus far!
In short, I'm a no games, call it like I see it, kind of person.
I'm not afraid to call someone out or be called out myself. Yes
ladies, I'm a man not a boy, and I know what I want and how to get
it. That's not to say I am not respectful, I identify as a
feminist, and can't stand prejudice. I consider myself intelligent,
ethical, and honest and have basic standards for people who I like
to spend time with. This seems to be an important disclaimer in
online dating, so if I'm even close to your standards yet please
I'm a college graduate looking at masters programs as well as a
good use for my bachelors degree. Which is in philosophy, so it's
pretty damn near impossible (whatever parents, you were right, but
I still don't care and enjoy it!). In other words, I'm a member of
the Unemployed Philosophers Guild at the moment and have watch to
prove it (I'm unemployed as a philosopher, need to make that
distinction). I can be a bit of a nerd, but enjoy current events,
especially just about anything going on outside the U.S.
I like someone who can hold intelligent conversation, can have fun
and laugh, and is concerned with self improvement. Let's talk about
space, the environment, social issues, and whatever you think
psychology is, and could help me out).
If you couldn't tell by now, I abuse the hell out of commas, and
get away with it by labeling them as "Oxford" in nature.

Trivia. For some reason I absorb factoids like a sponge. Jeopardy
and Trivial Pusuit are kinda my thing. Go ahead, ask me something.
Promise I won't use Google
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair. It turns all the heads. Usually makes the ladies jealous.
I like to refer to it as my 'mane'. It's also earned me the
nickname "the ginger lion"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: VERY important. However, open to about anything. Jazz, Folk,
Alternative, even catchy pop. Some e.g.'s: Cosmo Jarvis, The
Mountain Goats, AWOLNATION, The Cardigans, Architecture in
Helsinki, Miles Davis, Sufjan Stevens, Lana del Rey, Interpol,
Tegan and Sara, Florence + The Machine. Just no newish country,
sexist/misogynist rap, or grunge.
Books: Anything on philosophy (my main area of interest is Early
Modern, so basically from the 14th to 18th century), Jose Saramago,
Chuck Palahniuk, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Richard Dawkins
Movies: Anything that makes you think or leaves an impression, and
love dark comedy. Or if it's just fucked up. Waking Life, Requiem
of a Dream, City of God, Cloud Atlas

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
