Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I apologize in advance. I always hate when I click on a profile and
realize it was someone whose profile I had seen a bunch of times
before and I clicked on it because they had a new picture up or had
re-written their profile and I hadn't realized it was the same
person that I wasn't interested in before. So, yeah, sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Father, business owner, philosophy study-er, little league
watch-er, homeowner, cook-er, eater, drinker, guitar player (kinda
- used to be - now I just play to amuse myself), (former) traveler
(between business and kids I haven't been anywhere in forever -
help!), (cigar) smoker, fixer, giver, joker and probably countless
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organizing. Cooking. Philosophy. Redundancy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If they just see me on the street, probably the tattoos and the
rugged good looks (ha!). Once people get a chance to talk to me for
a few minutes its probably a sense of disconnect - I really am
equal parts blue-collar, roughneck, punk rock lunkhead and
intellectual, sophisticated aesthete.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Esoteric, dry, academic essays - if you're really interested - "On
Denoting" - Bertrand Russel, "Über Sinn und Bedeutung" - Gottlob
Frege, "Mind, Language and Reality" - Hilary Putnam, "Naming and
Necessity" - Saul Kripke.
God Bless America - anything by Bobcat. Audition, Bitter Moon. I
cried watching Blue Valentine.
Mostly Al Jazeera America but, oh my goodness, have you seen Naked
and Afraid? So freaking compelling.
This is where the punk rock lunkhead really shines through - Bad
Religion, Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, Zeke, but just to show I'm
not a total meathead Tom Waits and...wait for it...Amanda Fucking
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.
I'm supposed to answer this in a way that isn't obvious (even
ironically, like "air") and not absurd (like "eating flaming hot
cheetos , naked on a unicorn" - to show you how creative, wild and
spontaneous I am) but in a personal way that says something about
me that you would otherwise not have guessed, yes? Uh, I don't
know, I'm stumped.
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?
Spending 2 hours cooking a gourmet meal...which my kids won't eat.
("Wait, papa, what exactly is lamb?")
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Alright, I know some of you will judge me. I know admitting this
will cause attractive people to snicker and page through. But, I'm
lonely. I've only been on a handful of dates in the past couple of
years - no relationships, period. I miss having someone to share
with, someone that cares about me. Someone to just spend time with.
I think I'm an ok guy with a generous heart and an easy laugh, but
I've isolated myself out of fear and disillusionment. Suffice it to
say, I have a real hard time writing first, and for a guy on this
site, that seems to be straight fail.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Don't you just love all the profiles that use "healthy" and
"active" and "can't live without the gym" as shorthand for "my
definitive characteristic is that I'm not fat". Those same profiles
invariably seek "active, fit and ambitious", which basically
translates as "rich and, oh yeah, no fatties". Meanwhile, over 1/2
the country is morbidly obese. I don't have a list of requirements.
How do you know what you won't eat until you've tasted it? It's not
what you wear, it's how you wear it. I try to see the beauty in all
people. Seriously, I try.
