Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How does one go about summing oneself up? Why did I phrase that as
if I were British royalty?
I consider myself to be intellegent, quick witted, fiercy loyal, a
pretty good listener, and an introvert with extroverted
I am more of a city/ indoor person. I have done things like camping
and hiking, but tend to shy away from them because those things
happen in places where bears live. Lakes and stuff are cool to sit
by, but doing stuff in them freaks me out because they are fish
toilets. I also don't like to run.
Stories are super important to me. I thrive on times when I go back
and forth with my friends trading stories. I have a few good ones,
and quite frequently I find myself relaying my friends' stories to
other people. It's funny, because most people might consider their
lives to be a failure being in their mid-thirties with no wife,
kids, or amazing career, but I feel my life has been amazing for
the people I have gotten to know and the stories I have told,
heard, and been a part of over the years.
I have been single for a long time, but it has definitely been a
choice I've made. I'm at the point now where I'm ready for a
change. I want to meet a woman who fascinates me, and continues to
do so for as long as I know her. I want to meet someone who I can
talk with for hours and not even realize the time has flown by.
Someone to laugh with and create new memories with. Maybe I want
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still trying to figure that bit out. I have lots of ideas of how to
make an impact on this world, but loads of self doubt that keeps me
from taking the first step.
I’m really good at

Probably my laugh(s). Physically? I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: mostly non-fiction. I usually am reading about three books
at a time. Mostly history or biographies. Favorites include Our
Band Could Be Your Life, The Road, Devil in the White City, Blood
movies: Take Shelter, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Trollhunter, Let
the Right One In, True Romance, The Road, Control, About Time, Ex
shows: Fringe, Vikings, Freaks and Geeks, The Mighty Boosh, Doctor
Who (although, I will contend that Tom Baker was the only real
podcasts (they're kind of like shows) : Rachel and Miles X-plain
The X-Men (holy crap, I'm addicted)
music: As varied as it gets. Mostly stuff that is nowhere near
mainstream (although I love bands that follow the pop formulas). My
main points of interest these days are: British music, Black Metal,
Hip Hop, Noise, Hard Core, Pop punk, late 90's emo, Biffy Clyro,
etc. Music is the most important thing in my world, so I love
checking it all out. As important as it is to me, I'm not looking
for someone who likes the same stuff as I do. Just know that if you
are way into John Mayer, I would be a good one to avoid. I just
never want to be dragged along to one of his concerts (it's my only
real deal breaker). Wait, can I change my answer to Gin Blossoms? I
love Gin Blossoms.
food: Chicago-style hot dogs (the relish needs to be authentic). I
am also a big fan of anything that has peanut butter in it.
The six things I could never do without

sports (Especially ice hockey)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...alternate realities. It's not that I avoid reality, it is just
interesting to think about what life would be like based on
different choices I have made and have been made around me. Lately,
my thoughts along these lines have been about how every moment in
my life has led to this moment. Your life events have led you to
this point as well (reading my silly profile on OkCupid! :P).
I've also spent some time thinking about why cultural norms are
what they are. Why do people scream when they are afraid or applaud
when they approve of something or smooch when they are into
somebody of the opposite sex? How did those things become what we
do? Why not something else? Humans are weird.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Ah, the joys of a second shift job. Saturday nights,
though? Oh boy. I'm usually...not doing much. I'm just not a "go
out to the bar" kind of guy.
