Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recently returned to this side of the world, and ready to meet
The world's most charming Irishman. (Now that Oscar Wilde is dead.)
Fifteen years in the Bay Area, fifteen months (add as appropriate)
in San Francisco. Funny, smart, kind. Former archeologist (mmmm,
whip), now excavating for lost civilizations in SF. Mostly sane.
Almost inherited a sheep farm on Ireland's Atlantic coast -- that
could have been a very different life.
I like being with people who use their brains and their
I dislike cowboy hats. If you possess one, I predict we will not
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Meeting interesting people -- everyone has a life story, we all
have something to share.
Career-wise I work in tech, but would rather be a gallery curator.
But hey, I can visit galleries -- that'll work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people comfortable.
Making people laugh.
Making awesome breakfasts (and that's not just a flirt).
Talking and listening -- not just to myself.
Finding the sweet spots when giving an awesome massage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Brad Pitt, is that really you? My, how you've changed!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I just watched Airplane
for the first time in about 30
years. If you haven't seen it lately, you're in for a treat.
This is going to be a carousel of recent goodies. Best food lately
in the Mission. Man that fennel!
I love jazz
, but also classical. I finally went to the ballet for the
first time and loved it -- third row center may have helped. I like
indie rock too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The following six photos on your OKC profile.
1. Picture of you doing sky-diving. This is
2. Picture of you scuba-diving. No, you cannot make do with
just one extreme sport.
3. Picture of you somewhere exotic. Sorry, the Eiffel Tower
ain't gonna cut it. We need pyramids, minimum. If you
haven't been (and seriously, who has?) try photoshop.
4. Picture of you with female friends in a social situation.
To prove you have some. This should be in a bar, a
restaurant, at a concert. Not at Trader Joe's. Not at
Chipotle. And ensure friends aren't hotter than you. If
necessary, borrow some ugly people for this photo.
5. Picture of your cleavage in a social situation. To prove
you have some. Because really that's all men think about.
Or so you've been led to believe.
6. Picture of you with a kid in a social situation. Probably
not your kid. Probably with some clear indication that you're
a loving aunt or a volunteer, but really you'd be even happier with
a kid produced with my good self. Because really that's all
men think about. Aside from cleavage.
Extra credit for:
- you running a marathon or half marathon. To show you can.
And hopefully with your bib number pixelated out so I don't
nosily go and look you up on the publicly-available race results
- Your wedding photo -- with your ex scratched out.
- Arrest photo. Think Lindsey Lohan.
- Paparazzi shot of your underwear or down-blouse. Think
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sunlight, shadows, whether I should go for that fourth double
Is my cat lying to me about whether I fed her when I got in?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

You want to watch movies, go to nice bars, enjoy a nice meal,
cuddle up on a sofa, watch 37-hour German movies. You know -- the
