Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Hey look! It's a witty intro paragraph that lets you know how
carefree and funny he is. Isn't that a relief? I'm sure THIS guy
isn't an axe murderer! Oooh and he's 'laid back' too! Yeah.
I like my coffee black, prefer to drive a manual transmission, am a
proponent of the Oxford comma, and believe that well-placed curse
word improves one's quality of life immeasurably.
I just reactivated this thing after a long hiatus. I need to redo
my profile. I think I'm going to go a little more minimalist this
time. I think the best way to get to know people is by interacting
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hanging out with my cat. She's my best friend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can cook pretty well. My knife skills are more than adequate. I
like to think I can hold up my end of a conversation. I can get
eight hours worth of work done in three, which leaves me time to
goof off or be generally non-productive.
Also, grammar. Though occasionally I do not write in complete
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, I guess. I honestly don't know because I've never asked,
and that seems like a bit of a narcissistic question to throw at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not doing specifics here. I deal in concepts.
Books: I like thoughtful scifi that deals with existential
questions. I also like non-fiction books about history or human
behavior. I'm not married to these genres though.
Movies: I prefer dramas that have great acting. I'm picky about
comedies, but like good ones.
Shows: Again, I like dramas with good acting. I also dislike
episodic formats. I prefer well written story lines and themes that
flow season to season, episode to episode.
Music: I'm a music snob. I like a lot of old country music,
hardcore punk, and alternative hip hop with an East coast
Food: Garlicky. I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I prefer a
hearty bowl of soup to a slice of cake. All my food is sans
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are a lot of First World conveniences that I like. I like
having a nice reliable internet connection, which allows me access
to lots of other trivial conveniences. I don't really feel like
thinking of other stuff right now, and frankly I don't think this
section is all that interesting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Dumb shit that is weird, esoteric, and probably pointless. Not a
zombie apocalypse though. That's kind of played out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Define typical. I'm usually either out drinking or at home goofing
off on the internet and hanging out with my cat. Sometimes I really
shake things up and have a bowl of cereal.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
What you have read has made you think I'm interesting. I don't have
a laundry list of criteria here. I know this profile is kind of
dry. I like it like that. Maybe you read between the lines and
gleaned something about me. As I mentioned above, I think the best
way for people to get to know each other is direct interaction. How
much can you really know about someone by what they put on a dating
profile? Most people are at least partially full of shit, and you
have no reason to think I'm any different.
