Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How about we try things a little different? Look at:
You want to run screaming, we might not have much in common.
Explanations? Way too often, on here, I've gotten women with a
recently emptied nest who think it would be romantic to go out with
Nope. It isn't. You want romance? Fall crazy in love with someone
who's crazy in love with you. It exists not in romance novels or
tropes. It exists in an interaction you build.
To me, I'd rather scare them off before I need to lower them gently
down. I have no desire to hurt anyone or anything. It is very hard
to let them down without making them hurt.
So there you are. I'm me, a wonderful, kind, rotten person who
likes to duct tape women to water towers for shots. (Strange, I'm
not at all interested in bondage. Guess I'm weird.) I'd like to say
more: if you say nothing about yourself, don't bother. I don't care
if you look like Heather Nova. (Well . . . it'd be pretty cool.) If
you could handle hanging out under a comforter on a Friday watching
a dumb movie, I might really like to talk to you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a photographer, artist and very eclectic. I'm also in school
full-time to learn how to run a printing press . . . bills need to
be paid. I also write. I'm also dumb enough to work on cars.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A number of things. It seems more a question of what you want to be
good at, than what you are. (How's that for evasive?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mirrored Heavens, A Fire Upon the Deep, Julian, Count Zero,
Neuromancer, The Persian Boy, Exultant, Holy Fire, Involution
Ocean; those would be books . . . Blade Runner, anything by Ridley
Scott or Terry Gilliam. I definitely like Spartacus, and Vikings
has caught my attention as it's completely accurate and still
heroic and cool as hell. Ragnar and Floki were real people, as was
My taste in music is rather strange; I like Skinny Puppy, Paul
VanDyk, Mazy Star, Crystal Method, Johnny Cash, the Blue Man Group
and the Cowboy Junkies. Go figure.
I'll eat almost anything as long as it doesn't contain turnips,
rutabaga or peas. (Though I like split pea soup; I'm not sure about
that one, except it seems the sugars must caramelize, changing the
taste. And I like pea pods. I must have been frightened by a
vicious pea when I was young. If you haven't picked up on it . . .
I hate peas.) I love sushi, sashimi, steak, shark, trout, orange
roughy, turkey, humus, tabouli and asparagus. (Not at the same
time. Or in a stew.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4) My camera
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Existence. Philosophy. Religion. Science. How to do things right.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Good question. Used to be out dancing, but I seem to be in a
transitional phase right about now.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hhhmm . . . I'll admit to anything. I'm not terribly secretive. If
I'm not too ashamed to do it, I shouldn't be ashamed to admit it,
right? You may ask, if you'd like.
