Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm, I try to be an ethical hedonist. While I love the pleasure of
the senses (food, drink, touch, etc.) that pleasure should never
come at another person's expense. I get along with a wide variety
of people but can't abide fake people in any way. Real personal
relationships are the most important thing in this life, so why
waste time on people who are incapable of them? That doesn't mean
every friendship or love interest has to last a lifetime, just that
it's better if they're based on something real. Superficiality is
not my cup of tea.
My favorite things to do are swimming in the summer, biking, seeing
live music, drinking the best coffee I can find, cooking and eating
awesome food, discussing politics with mushy-headed uninformed
liberals (don't worry, I'm to the left of them, not the right),
good conversation with friends, and meeting new, interesting, real
people. Many of my good friends have been women, so I'm open to
meeting people for friendship or dating. I'm currently in a
relationship with an awesome, open woman who isn't into destructive
jealousy (neither am I!).
One more thing, it occurs to me that I have no body shots in my
pics (can't find my camera, hence the severely cropped shot and the
webcam shot). I'm 5'10" 200lbs, not slim, but not huge either.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hey, I thought after I moved away from home I wasn't supposed to
get harassed about that anymore! But I do have big business plans
for the upcoming year - you'll have to ask me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
table tennis, pool (always a sign of a wasted youth), cooking,
organic gardening, getting along with cats, and finding awesome
stuff for dirt cheap (you should see my kitchenware and cookbook
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll have to start asking them, but probably my long hair with an
indefinable color (is it red? brown? blonde?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books - Tough one, I've been a voracious reader since I
was a kid, but I'll throw out a few - "The Book on the Taboo
Against Knowing Who You Are" by Alan Watts, "The Tibetan Book of
Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, "Stranger in a Strange Land"
by Robert Heinlein, sci-fi, radical history, and anything
well-written involving Taoist/Buddhist/pantheistic thought
Favorite movies - Bladerunner, Shawshank Redemption, Goodfellas,
Casino, The Truman Show, any good sci-fi or gangster flick (I know,
not the ultra-sensitive or artsy answer some of you are looking
Favorite shows - The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, cooking shows, but
generally not much of a tv guy
Favorite music - Reggae, funk, African music, electronic, almost
anything fun to dance to
Favorite foods - French, Italian, Caribbean, ultra-fresh seafood
(especially shellfish), organic vegetables from the garden
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Great food
2) Decent wine (if I could afford great wine I'm sure I couldn't
live without it)
3) Great beer (it's easier to afford than great wine)
4) The BEST possible coffee
5) Real friends
6) Table tennis
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
human behavior in all of it's wonderful weirdness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a couple of beers out somewhere or going dancing if there's
good music playing!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm wimpy about biking in the rain.
