Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a sucker for a guy who can make me laugh!
I'm down for adventure, and love to travel, though I don't get to
do nearly enough of it. I work as much as humanly possible but I'm
beginning to think I might just be destined to be poor. I'm OK with
I like almost all types of movies except for action, even though
Lethal Weapon 2 was, weirdly, my favorite movie when I was 10. What
I'm saying is I would probably go to a Liam Neeson film, against my
better judgment (I mean honestly - the man was Oskar Schindler in
one of the best films of all time; has he no pride?).
I love my job. I love teaching.
I enjoy running, but I'm straight-up terrible at it. I am by far
the slowest runner of all time.
I don't use abbreviations in texts. Or anywhere really.
I once had a terrifying experience while meteor hunting. It
involved wild animals (including a goose) and possible cult
I don't know a ton of French but there are times when my emotions
are best expressed in it. Fortunately I realize what a dick I would
sound like if I just went around dropping French words here and
there, so I don't.
I need to get out more.
I've been alone for a really long time and have loved every minute
of it, but now I'm ready to find the right guy (or a succession of
the wrong guys but who are good guys, just not the right ones for
me). I want to waltz on an outdoor dance floor. I want to visit
Prague. I want to jump out of a plane. I want to see an Olympic
event live. I want to take a 3-month roadtrip on the Pan-American
Highway, from Prudhoe Bay to Argentina. I want to spend an entire
American summer in Australia.
I'm not ordinary, and I'm looking for an extraordinary guy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a high-school English teacher; I'm over-educated and underpaid
and at a certain point I really am going to have to leave my job at
a private school for a better-paying one, but I'll be sad when I go
because my students make me laugh every single day, even when we're
(That was a five-line single sentence. Excellent!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Since finishing grad school in May, I feel like I'm at a
crossroads. I'm not entirely sure what my favorite anything is
anymore, but I'm working on discovering. Perhaps you could help!
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The end of the human race. It probably sounds silly, but it's
something that both worries and fascinates me.
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 have fallen off bikes in two different hemispheres. One of those
times was captured on video and actually happened in slo-mo, no
effects needed. I would like to stay ON a bike in the Southern
Hemisphere. I'm looking to break the streak.
