Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a barrel of fun. Or pickles. Something like that.
Raised to be polite, I get along with most people, but only really
like smart funny weirdos who dress cool.
I'm into reading, music, motorcycles, and talking to my roommate's
dog, who is awesome. I think most dogs are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I think this is the part of the profile where you're supposed to
assure people that you have a job and friends and aren't a
psychopath and stuff.
I moved to New York with hopes of doing something with books for a
living, drinking with interesting people from time to time,
learning to be more judgmental, and never having to go to Home
Depot for the rest of my life. Oh shit I did all that stuff. I
guess I am pretty successful. Alert the alumni office!
Life is in transition in a couple ways. Considering buying a studio
and settling in for the long gentrifying haul here in the Bronx.
I've gotten into exercise and healthy eating habits, much to my
surprise. Recently tried showering, which we didn't have in my
country of origin. It may not be a crypto fascist consumerist mind
trick after all.
No great expectations here, but meeting someone fun for movies and
concerts and making out would be cool, and if something more
evolved out of that, well, that would also be cool.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Easy on the eyes.
Does not fit well into compact spaces.
If they stick around a bit, many people find me charming, full of
useless trivia, an above average speller, poor role model, a good
mix of introspective and life of the party, and always willing to
share some excellent recipes for barbecued child.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
3 favorite books are Lunch Poems by Frank O'Hara, The Power Broker
by Robert A. Caro, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S.
I like some contemporary poetry and YA fiction, and books about
cities and American history.
I'm a librarian, so this could go on forever...Reading is a big
part of my life. The last year I've been especially into poetry and
I really fucking hate James Patterson.
I love Top Gun, Rocky, and a lot of other cheesy movies. For brain
food, I generally like what they show at BAM. I'm not above a good
horror movie or something with a lot of car crashes. Furious 7 was,
sadly, a recent enthusiasm.
I should probably mention one more time how total and genuine is my
love for Top Gun and Rocky movies.
TV is cool. Broad City, Gilmore Girls, Trailer Park Boys, the funny
years of the Simpsons, and Absolutely Fabulous. House of Cards,
Intervention, and food shows...
I like a variety of country music.
I like a variety of rock music.
I like a variety of rap music.
I fall asleep during classical music.
I like these musicians a whole lot:
David Allan Coe
Guns 'N Roses
I really fucking hate Nickelback.
I don't like broccoli, but everything else is fair game. I make
most of my own food but enjoy a good restaurant meal once in a

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think I'll list six things I like a lot:
Planet Fatness black card
Antique lamp from grandma that looks like a duck
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sometimes I think about when I'm going to die. I'm not particularly
morbid, but knowing would make it easier to plan everything
Other than that it's pretty much food and which subway goes where.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
1990: Watchin' Urkel.
2000: Something illegal.
2010: Something domestic.
2015: Hopefully something cool with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cry during Where The Red Fern Grows.
