Am I going to say something witty and distinctive from your other messages, probably not, since I would need to know you better. How do you meet people in the real world, you say hello, chat a bit, then exchange numbers and keep in contact, or through friends. If you're trying okcupid you're probably trying to expand your options. So you might not want to answer all the messages you get, but 'hello my name is ...' works in the real world and I don't think a dating site should be that different.
Things I like to do: happy hours, going to shows, eating out, trying something new, the outdoors, snowboarding, cycling, running, yoga, climbing, hiking, camping, backpacking, beer tasting, wine tasting, cooking, dancing (salsa, bachatta, dancehall), surfing, scuba diving, road trips, traveling, exploring, talking about interesting topics, reading, partying, relaxing, festivals, and lots of sex.
I'm a happy, enthusiastic and generally positive person, I have a good life. I'm a successful, talkative and fun software engineer. I laugh, play/have fun, am emotionally mature, have a good IQ & EQ. I'm an alpha male, with a caring heart, a flirtatiously young, affectionate, very sexual, giving, bold, upfront, healthy, active, go with the flow spontaneous, open-minded, and HONEST. I’m a balanced introvert/extrovert of sorts, I/ENTP.
I choose to live, be present to life and enjoy it, while taking care of things and looking ahead. I like exploring, learning, finding the greatness in life's little things, having my heart race, feeling passion for life and it’s moments, discovering, growing and evolving to a better version.
Staying safe by never going outside of your comfort zone, by never taking risks, is the riskiest thing you can do. Don't strategize for goals, achievements or focus so intently on what you can get; start enjoying the moments, the play, the risks, the discomfort and challenges and let go of the fears that freeze you and just start savoring.
