Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I find writing essays about myself as awkward here as in cover
letters but I guess that's a common sentiment.
I am gainfully employed, much nerdier than I look and I hold a
valid driver's license
I really liked university, so much so that I did 7 years of it, but
now I am pretending to be real person.
From the conversations I have had with people it seems that
something about my profile gives the impression that I love bottle
service? Maybe because I'm wearing collared shirts in my pictures,
or because my profile below refers to "Epic" nights.
The truth is, I'm not really that into clubs, I think king west is
a complete douchefactory. In fact I don't really drink very often
and when I do go out I like to go to a dive like Clintons and then
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a theory (I'm sure other people have it too, I'm not
claiming ownership) that the reason people do most social things is
Like, going out: most nights you just go, you dance, you see your
friends, you come home. No big deal, not really worth the 100 bucks
you spent, But you do it because you're hoping that this will be
that epic night where you stay out till 5 am, or
go skinny dipping in lake Ontario, or sing karaoke with complete
strangers... Whatever. There is some other great story that might
occur, and you want to be a part of it.
Or even the conversations you have on here. It's pleasant enough
saying "Hello, what do you do? How was your weekend? Do you like
dogs or cats?" but I think we are here hoping that we don't just
talk about work or the movie we saw last night (unless it was
fucking awesome and worth talking about)? That one of us says
something deeply personal, or truly insightful, or in some way
moves the plot forward in the relationship* that you have with
whoever you're talking to?
*I mean relationship in the general sense that you have a
relationship with anyone you speak to. Not "A Relationship" in the
sense of going out with someone.
We all have these experiences where we break through the monotony
of our lives* and really "advance the plot" in some way or another.
Things change, or at least feel like they could change, and we look
for those events
*I am not saying that your life sucks. I am saying that most days
in your life are not really that different from the last day. And
that's not a terrible thing, stability is important. But the
reality of working the same job, knowing the same people, going to
the same gym, etc. Is that no matter how cool what you do is, it
will eventually become the usual for you.
So I guess that's what I'm doing with my life - looking for
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm large and I look like a bit of a meathead.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just about anything... I think that saying someone thinks too much
is akin to saying that someone showers too regularly. It may be
possible, but it's pretty fucking rare.
