Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After a long marriage, I find myself single again and surprised by
how difficult it is to meet normal people willing to be vulnerable
and free from harsh judgements based on their sometimes traumatic
experiences (I have never made anyone hate men). I'm just a regular
guy that would love to meet a regular gal. I'm fairly outgoing and
I like people, enjoy a good conversation. I like hanging with
people who have a dry wit and are constantly bantering in a way
that makes me laugh. Born and raised in the City so I am not a
Marin County, nice car, designer house, catered party kind of guy.
I like taking the bus, think the Examiner was run by a bunch of
fascists (prior to recent change in ownership, tho it is still a
bad paper), and support social justice causes. Believe in living a
healthy lifestyle - exercise and eat/drink in moderation. Try to
keep active and volunteer. Like R&B - classic and contemporary.
Having spent a good part of my youth doing organizing work, I think
I developed good communication skills and can read people pretty
well. But I only use my powers for good. Anyway, I'm getting tired
of talking about myself. Let's hear about YOU.
OKC commentary: I may not get many dates out of this site but I do
get a lot of entertainment from the questions. Some of them just
completely crack me up. And I'm sorry, but I can't answer them all
seriously. In the past, I would look at some of them and think,
'What kind of moron came up with THIS question??' But as I have
gone through a few profiles, I realize that you actually cannot
have enough moronic questions. Some people actually answer them
thoughtfully and their responses are very scary. PHEW. Good
filters! Pay attention to the warning, 'Y'all got issues!' It may
be for reals.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've got a job that I love with some wonderful co-workers who I
consider my friends. I do volunteer work, support social justice
causes, and that keeps me pretty busy outside of work. Enjoy
entertaining and hanging out with friends. I exercise and eat right
in order to support this lifestyle and achieve my goal to live to

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have been a political activist and community organizer and
because of that I have good organizational skills and I work well
with people. I like to think that I am reliable and an empathetic
friend who will always be there when I am needed. I appreciate a
good laugh and think that my sense of humor keeps my friends

I'm pretty much an open book. But you'll have to meet me to find
anything private out.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a great sense of humor, have liberal politics, and I'd
prefer it if you were more on the slender side (I'm thin - just
looking for someone similar). I get along with most people and am
willing to cast a broad net, but if you are American-born and
Asian, I'll probably look at you first. It's really all about
compatibility, isn't it?
