Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love traveling and people who surprise me.
I swear I have friends and like sports and creative outlets... but
I also did this on national public radio (inner nerdiness):
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At a startup. Being outside as much as possible
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
trivia, doing good deeds, photography, cooking, almost offending
people, the nytimes crossword puzzle (sunday - thursday), knowing
what people mean when they say things
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: dave eggers, david sedaris, chuck klosterman, interesting
non-fiction until it's boring/repetitive, some new fiction when I'm
in the right mood and 7 people have recommended it. I'm also in a
dudes-only book club.
Movies: Wes Anderson (if you loved Fantastic Mr. Fox, we'll get
along), Coen brothers, David O. Russel films (I <3 Huckabees
anyone?), Spike Jonze, lots of other things
T.V. Shows: Arrested Development, Simpsons (seasons 1-9ish) HBO
-> The Wire, Game of Thrones, some others
Music: Radiohead, indie rock, lots of older rap/hip hop, getting
into lots of new stuff. I like dancing, too.
Food: Everything... and I love spicy asian foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Thai food, nymag (still, and more for vicarious reasons now that I
moved to SF), eating/drinking outdoors, sriracha, and finally my
impeccable counting skills
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why is my mood affected so much by the weather or whether I'm
eating or have eaten recently?
why christoph niemann doesn't do more things for my entertainment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...celebrating the one week anniversary of the previous friday.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I go through phases of interest with this and I'm not big on
constructing funny/clever messages that go ignored... so you should
message me something short.
