Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. I'm Eric. I live in Columbia Heights. I write. I drink. And I
love to eat.
Some of my favorite days I spent walking and exploring my own city.
I am right more times than people give me credit for and wrong more
times than I'd want to admit. I'm pretty much a DC-area native,
having spent most of my life in and around the city.
I love dating. I've found the worst thing that can happen is I make
a new friend.
I'm a sucker for smart women who have a passion in something I know
little or nothing about. Oh, and a pretty smile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being my own activities director. Writing. Eating new things.
Looking for opportunities to be a better me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making friends. And cooking a meal out of whatever I find in your
refrigerator. I'm also pretty good at awkward situations. Now
whether or not I'm the cause of said awkward situations is up for
debate. And also karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
How approachable and easy-going I am. Seriously, I used to be a
magnet for clipboard people on 14th ST. Now I Just scowl and they
get the point.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read a new book about every month.
My favorites (in no particular order): One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest. The Great Gatsby. Tiger's Wife. Invisible Monsters.
The Devil All the Time. Interpreter of Maladies. The
TV: I don't watch much TV, but when I do it's
almost always one of these shows: Doctor Who. The Walking
Dead. And any show I find interesting about traveling. Or any
show of the moment on Netflix that gets through my lazy
Food: If I were to choose the top three, they
would be: Japanese, Cajun/Soul Food and a serious tie between
Chinese, Vietnamese, Mediterranean and Mexican.
Music: Pretty much anything but go-go and
Movies: Way too many to name. But I have a
penchant for bad horror, loud action, sappy rom-coms and epic
dramas. We'll leave it at that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Really good headphones
3. Pair of jeans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- how people ever figured out the bus routes and schedules before
the advent of the Internet;
- why there's no "Yelp for People You've Go on Dates with" and if
there were, what my average rating would be;
- the next place I'm going to travel and why I'm thinking about the
next place to travel and not actually traveling right at this
- my three nieces and nephew; and
- the subject of my next piece of writing - at this moment, it's
apparently "On a typical Friday night I am..."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
cooking a large meal and/or out with my friends. If I stay in, I'm
probably writing, or binge-watching something on Netflix, and then
probably lying about it on Monday when my Boss asks me what I did
over the weekend. He lives vicariously through me; it breaks my
heart to let him down.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every time I rate someone on Quickmatch, I feel dirty. Who am I to
judge people based on their looks? This affliction has now gotten
worse since OKCupid mobile app went all Tinder-esque on us. But
it's like crack, I can't stop doing it.
Also, I'm allergic to cats. So, I don't actually "Dislike cats," my
body just won't let me like them.
