Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Profile 3.0.1 New and Improved - now with much more
I'm an eternal optimist. Or, at least, it seems that way because I
keep re-writing this profile imagining I'll meet someone
worthwhile, if I can just nail the correct mixture of snark and
warmth. My apologies to the handful of women I've been out with
that I just, incidentally, described as non-worthwhile.
I'm O.G. punk rock. Remember back in '81 when you used to go to
shows at Godzilla's and the T-bird roller drome and there was that
12 year old, running around drunk, with a couple of other 12
year-olds, watching Fear, China White and Bad Religion? That was
I have a job. I help create the images that give teen girls body
dysmorphia. Just so you know I'm not sexist, I also accept money to
help create the images that destroy the sense of self of young men,
I am educated. I have a degree in a major that, after hearing me
talk about it for 2 minutes, will cause you to cover your ears and
sing "la, la, la - I can't hear you - la, la, la". Mostly because
it is complex, boring and of no practical use. Kinda like me.
Excerpt for the boring part. Yeah.
So that's it, really - career, I have a car. I don't have
roommates. I eat meat (shhh, sometimes I don't even know what farm
it came from - don't tell anyone). I don't do yoga.
I'll stop there because you are more than likely projecting
everything else on to me anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Obsessively, maniacally, fulfilling my commitments. Being a rock
for those I love, quietly. Feeling my blood burn and my mind race.
Expecting people to have some fucking heart. Tempering
disappointment and dulling pain.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping people understand free will v. Determinism, modal logic and
what the hell Aristotle was talking about.
Oh yeah, and I can cook!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hope nothing. I take pride in not taking pride. Don't get me
wrong, I don't try to be invisible - I'm not ashamed and trying to
be invisible is narcissistic as well - I just don't feel the need
to prove my worth with appearance. Ostentatious display is reaching
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Esoteric, dry, academic essays - if you're really interested - by
the likes of Russell, Putnam, Frege, Kripke. I read 1Q84 and was
pissed at the lack of narrative arc. If I want to experience the
absurdity of existence without a narrative arc, I can contemplate
my own existence. I do however enjoy Henry Rollins, Miller, Nin,
Keret. Sedaris - yay! I belong.
God Bless America - anything by Bobcat. Audition, Bitter Moon. I
cried watching Blue Valentine.
I have a TV. I watch it. Sometimes.
When I want to get drunk, fuck and fight? Turbonegro, Zeke,
Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy. When I can't believe how incredibly
backwards everyone is? Bad Religion, Rollins. When I want to dwell
on how hopelessly alone I am? Amanda Palmer. When I want to drift
off into a hypnotic state of sensual ecstasy? Scarling, JOJ.
Providence, Huaraches de Azteca, Fogo de Chao, Zelo's, Ludo.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wow - that is kind of a hard one. Besides the baseline physical
necessities, I feel as though I am currently conducting an
experiment whereby I discover exactly what I can live without. If
you'd like to suggest something I can't live without, please do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Necessity and contingency.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the NYT crossword; hence, why I have written this profile.

I love a wit sharp enough to stick me. I love dark hair, dark eyes,
glasses, curves, but mostly, I love brains.
