Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Michael. Or Mike, or any silly nickname you'd prefer! Be
creative. I know I like to be when I get the chance, especially
when this time of year rolls around and I think of Halloween
costume ideas. I've got no fewer than 3 new options this year. So
yeah, I like to get a little silly. Have a few drinks and go do
karaoke, have alter-egos when we put our names in at a bowling
alley, or just dance around for the fun of it. But I also know when
to be an adult, of course! Just as long as it's not too
My favorite time is when I get to drive out to see my best friend
on the weekends when he's looking after his kids, 2 year old
triplets. They're such great kids and I love being Uncle Mike, so
much so that I hope to have some of my own one day soon. I'm not
looking to rush into something, but I thought I should put that out
there because it's really important to me.
I should also say that around anyone I don't know, I'm probably
gonna be really shy and stumble over my words a lot, but I'm the
type of person who's going to grow on you, that's what the people
who really know me will tell you. I'm loyal to a fault, generous,
trustworthy, and affectionate. Just holding hands with someone and
walking down the street puts a big smile on my face, and I hope it
does for you too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in Philadelphia at a litigation support company. What is
that, exactly? Basically I'm a "computer guy" and any other
explanation wouldn't be too exciting. After this I go home to my
duplex in Collingswood where my dog Fozzie is waiting for me. The
profile came first, so no, I didn't name it after him. He's named
after my own penchant for fuzziness and bad jokes. He's 4 years old
and he's a shelter dog so I'm not sure of the breed, but obviously
some Welsh corgi. He's the sweetest guy and he never barks. That's
no exaggeration either, I've heard him bark like 3 times ever.
Otherwise I like to work on little craft projects from time to time
and think of ideas for interesting vacations to take when I have
someone to go with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
General problem solving. I'm not that creative with a blank canvas,
metaphorically speaking, but give me nearly any existing issue and
I'm good at finding ways to make it better. Just a knack I have.
I'm also well renowned for my mac and cheese. My friends request it
specifically when we have special occasions. And finally, I'm
really good at remembering obscure facts and instantly forgetting
someone's name and face when they're introduced to me.

Hmmmm... maybe the silly dance I'm usually doing, just because?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For books, it's hard to say. I don't want to say only comics
because that makes it seem way more obsessive than it is. Yes, I do
read comics, and I like to read normal books, but my attention span
these days is tough when I sit down with a book. It's hard for me
to focus that long on reading a novel and the like. I do more
reading of the news, though sometimes I fall behind on that
Movies, I love goofy comedies, dramas that feel real, and over the
top action flicks. This christmas, I got blurays of Pitch Perfect,
The Wrestler, and Machete, to give you an idea of the breadth of my
tastes. Big fan of superhero movies, if the comic thing wasn't
enough of a hint. I love everything Disney and Pixar (except Cars).
Just saw Frozen and it was so unbelievably good. Lilo & Stitch
and WALL-E are two of my all-time favorites. I could go on, but
that's enough for now.
TV, I don't watch a lot regularly. Favorite series on the air right
now is Archer without a doubt. Some other favorites include
Breaking Bad, Star Trek The Next Generation, Doctor Who, 30 Rock,
The IT Crowd, The Daily Show and Colbert Report, Bobs Burgers, and
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I've been watching Walking Dead,
Agents of SHIELD, and Homeland, but I'm not that into them
Music I just generally like something I can turn up loud, but that
could be from nearly any genre. I can get into just about anything,
but I really do not like Dave Mathews Band. It's just a thing I
Food I love everything from a fancy steakhouse or a swanky tapas
place to a greasy cheesesteak counter or a place below street level
putting crazy toppings on hot dogs. I'm often the person people
come to when they want to know where to go to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Someone special to live this life with
A comfortable couch
Something funny to watch
Quality footwear (praise St. Hubbins!)
And cheese, without which I couldn't make that mac and cheese I

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Just chilling out at home, walking the dog, or hopefully out on a

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That "I'm a little weird" stuff at the top? It's basically a
description of my high functioning autism, usually referred to as
Asperger syndrome. I have trouble dealing with some social cues,
but I work hard at it and I'm willing to make adjustments if a girl
is willing to ask me to make them. That can make some people
uncomfortable, but for me it's just reality so it doesn't bother
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Wow, I wrote a lot. Stream of consciousness. If you read the whole
thing, you definitely should message me, if only to tell me if I
should shorten it.
I'm looking for someone who can be patient with me when I don't
understand what I'm doing wrong, because I usually have a hard time
seeing things from outside my perspective. I'm actually rather good
at that when I'm in problem solving mode, but only because one of
the perspectives isn't my own! *sad trombone noise*
If you think getting a tattoo or having an all out Nerf fight
sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon, I think we're gonna
