Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't like this box. That's the kind of person I am - I'm not
afraid to tell you I don't like boxes, and I'm not afraid to tell
this box to shove it.
Shove it, box.
Also I'm rewriting this. Because I'm not single, just really bored.
But I'm also a lazy fuck. Deal with it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just graduated from Ball State with a major in psychology and a
minor in sociology. Then I couldn't find a job and came home. I'm
trying to find a job, then save up to go back to Muncie to be with
my girlfriend. Until I manage that, I'm trying to get in shape and
playing video games. I'm so cool.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Uh. Um. Ummmm.
I'm an average fencer (which isn't "really good", but again - shove
it, box.) and a damn fine computer repairman. I'm a pretty good
fractal artist and I'm fairly skilled at games - digital or
otherwise. I'm also fan-tastic
at coming up with synonyms
I'm evidently a pretty funny guy. ErinLaLa
says so. I can't vouch for her
says so too but, really, who
could trust her? You shouldn't trust me I guess because I've had
her username wrong for like half a fucking year. What's wrong with
me. My God.
I'm also nice. Good at being nice. Not the shitty kind of
sycophantic nice and also not the really lame, weak-willed nice.
I'm totally cool with telling it as it is, but in a constructive
fashion. Not everyone likes this. Shove it, people who don't like
Oh, and I'm told I'm a pretty good kisser. I can't really verify
that one myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to be wordy (hah) - I'm a bit of a talker once I
get going, although I tend to trip over words. I have a tendency to
look distracted or bored.
The obvious one is usually when I'm wearing shorts in the dead of
winter. I swear it's not an attention thing - I hate pants, they're
constricting and terrible and I don't like them. Bare shin
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Fuck you, Stephenie Meyer. You're named after your dad and I
I like cyberpunk, sci-fi and anything really amusing. I'm also kind
of getting into biographies; I have two on David Bowie. This is two
more than most people have. Ask me about David Bowie. I just bought
a Kindle, which is also cool!
Movies: Sci-fi (again), comedies, a smattering of other things.
It's a varied category. I generally avoid big-name movies or
mindless action flicks.
Music: This used to be a trainwreck. Safe to say that I pretty much
like everything (excepting shitty things). I also really hate
people who say "I like everything!" and then they pretty much like
the opposite? If you say you like everything I will challenge your
ass. If you want a shiny list and graphs and suchlike,
Food: I'm not really a "foodie"... it goes in, and then it comes
out. I mean, I like food - I really like cereal - but, I dunno.
It's food. Non-runny cheeses? Spinach?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
0: FOOD AND WATER LOLZ GUYS AM I CLEVAR YET
1: Music. I have almost a month's worth and I'm always craving
more. Point me in the direction of a good album and we're New Best
2: Games. Gaming of any kind is an excellent way to bond with
people, to make new connections and learn about people.
3: The Internet. I know it's super fucking lame and nerdy but I
realized last night that I've not-so-recently passed the point
where I've used the Internet more years than I haven't. I actually
remember life without social networking and Youtube and Bittorrent
and Google Everything and I can't imagine how I'd function without
it. I'm a netchild, really.
4: Education. Anything from learning math or science to reading a
book or digging in the yard with your bare hands. Watch rain fall.
Pay attention to music. Education doesn't have to be formal to be
5: Experience. I'm admittedly kind of a shut-in (especially during
the summer) and new things tend to make me a little nervous. But
every little thing I do makes me less nervous and more aware of
everything going on around me.
6: Friends and family. These people form the support group that
essentially allows me to actually exist. I like to stand alone but
I think everyone needs someone they can turn to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I late? What does life mean? Am I trying too hard? Are the
people around me trying too hard? Could I ever be a wicked awesome
cook? What can I do for the people around me? Where's that book I
was looking for? etc., etc.
My mind basically never shuts off and most nights it takes me one
to two hours to fall asleep just because I'm staring at the ceiling
and my mind is just pushing out questions and answers without
ceasing. It gets kinda tough sometimes because very frequently I'll
think of something, and then forget everything except that I
thought of something really important/cool. Then I try really hard
to remember it and get a headache. How sad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on a problem. Helping someone. Playing a game - with or
without people, electronic or physical. Making something.
All of these probably involve swearing. Swearing is not so much a
Friday-night thing as it is an every-day thing. It runs in the
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This used to be about my Magic: the Gathering collection but I
actually sold all that. Whoops.
My freshman year of college I woke up at 5 a.m., desperately
needing to use the bathroom. I stumbled to the bathroom after
putting on pants as quickly as possible, slumped onto the toilet,
and immediately asked myself: "Am I a transvestite?" I have never
done anything that would classify me as a transvestite. I was
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Here's why you shouldn't message me: if you say you like
"everything" when it comes to music. Seriously. It's a huge fucking
pet peeve of mine. I'll talk to pretty much anyone a little bit but
saying you like "everything" or even worse, "everything except
country or rap" is pretty much You Being Awful. Also if you like
"everything, from pop to punk to rap". That's not everything,
motherfuckers! Nobody likes everything! I listen to shit that would
make you curl into a fetal position and vividly hallucinate your
birth and death simultaneously. I'd rather mail vomit to my
grandmother than discover you don't actually like everything. If
you're brave of heart I will straight up challenge you on this.
Even the guy who runs the record store doesn't like
Yeah, I exaggerated that a little. But I won't take it back.
You should message me if you actually read though that entire
essay, all this text, if only so I can apologize to you. I'm
sorry! I'm so fucking sorry! It won't happen again until it happens
Also, see up there, where it says "new friends"? I really mean it.
I love, LOVE to meet new people and talk to them. If you give me
suggestions for a new album to listen to you'll be my new best
friend (not literally). I honestly just like to talk and learn
about people who are different from me. I also promise not to make
inappropriate sexual advances, like, ever.
Also also if you love David Bowie as much as I do. It's hard,
because I really love David Bowie. But it could happen.
Also also also AIM: rgepsilon
