Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I had some poetry wank here earlier. I deleted it all, but I
couldn't just start with the next line. that would sound too
pompous. it needs a little buffer. ok. ready? here we go.
I am literally the funniest, most charming man on the planet.
No really what do you put here? uhmmmm.. I've always been a cat
person but I'm thinking about getting a dog. [edit: got dog. cutest
german shepherd ever] I prefer dark chocolate and crinkly,
caramelized cheese to whatever the alternatives to those are. DILF.
Kinda over 'the scene.' But there's got to be something cool going
on, right? Or maybe I'm just hangin with the wrong people.
Generally more interested in having quiet, unique moments than
having some sort of standard, ready-made experience we've been

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
taking care of kids, unsure of the future, we make up songs about
poop and kung fu.
the future is a flowchart. I've just come out of this.. toddlerhood
tunnel, where i didn't see a lot of friends. I'm really trying to
fix that. Spending time with other adults using multiple syllables
with impunity. How nice does that sound!
Working part time at the moment. It's a start! (cue over the top
smile and two thumbs up) I'm trying to get back into actually
working, as I've been a stay-at-home dad for the last few years,
and I kinda forgot what having a work schedule was like. Or wearing
actual pants, not just whatever, relaxing, comfortable, vaguely
exercise related pants, the uniform of the stay-at-home.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
hangin out, melting cheese, stacking blocks, makin bacon, paper
planes, witty quipicisms... Look, I bring nothing to the table
besides a sandwich. Just move on.

Books! I used to read a lot. Lately I've been reading nothing
beyond the classics of kid lit. The bests so far: AA Milne's Winnie
the Pooh, Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and EB White's
Stuart Little. For myself, I just started A Game of Thrones and
yes, I like it. It's actually quite a nice story that I can focus
on, as opposed the constant boobs on the tv show of the same name.
Which, i mean yeah I like. But come on guys, low hanging
I have pretty eclectic music tastes. I know everyone says that. I
used to dj on KUSF for years, so I have a pinch of street cred when
I say it. But I'm generally able to enjoy quality music from any
genre if I'm in the right mood.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
situations, moments from the past that maybe didn't go quite right.
Or other moments that went perfectly.
Leaves fall in the breeze, the laughter of children. Little

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a complicated home life.
I worry that my living arrangement, which is basically living with
my ex (and her current dude) and our kids is off putting to
prospective dates. While we're not in a romantic relationship, we
still have to coordinate our schedules and I end up spending most
of my non-work evenings putting the kids to bed (which is great,
but can also tire me out to the point where I don't want to go
I guess my point is that I don't want to come off as aloof or
toying with anyone's feelings. But I do have a sorta familial
commitment that is predominant in my life. It's not a permanent
situation by any means, but it's what I'm working with at the
moment. I do want to go out and spend time with adults in the
world, I do I do. Really.
