Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am far less cool than I think I am.
To maybe show my nerdy side a biiiit too much right off the bat:
I'm huge into statistics and data. Properly conceived and executed
studies can get past the 'common sense' answers (that are so very
often entirely wrong) and down into the real heart of social,
political and ethical questions. If you can blind me with stats and
real evidence, you've got me in the palm of your hand.
I'm pretty geeky. Poly and sex positive. I'm a cis, white, (mostly)
straight dude, but I am absolutely gay- lesbian- and
trans-friendly. I have a love of discovery and knowledge. I love
psychology, sociology and general sciences, but went into theatre
because it was an outlet for my creative drive. Currently working
on the prerequisites for the nursing program at Langara.
I love dancing like an idiot. I can't dance well, but I can dance
AWESOME, and that's good enough for me.
I love talking esoteric mindstuff like human bias, politics and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school. Sociology and Psychology, then into a nursing
program with a specialization in mental health.
The only reason I don't go into the sciences directly is because I
like all of them too much to pick one. Physics! No, engineering! No
wait, medical science! No wait, this one, that one, the other
Getting back into music. I play bass and drums, and I'm having a
blast with both.
It says in the sidebar that I speak German (poorly). I have taken
one single semester of German language classes, so poorly may be
overselling myself. But I will likely continue.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
High-fives! I'm very good at forgetting my age when asked. I play
bass and drums passably well.
Trial-and-erroring my way through computer software issues. I know
just enough to know what not to do, but not enough to suss out a
problem just by looking at it. I spend inordinate amounts of time
poking my computer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fedora ('Nice Guy' red flag #1!). The moustache (#2). If you're
really observant, the fact that my eyes are different colours -
brown and green. I actually have a scar on my chin and a dimple in
one eye from the accident that caused my eye colour change. I am
not naturally heterochromatic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Every time I write in this box, I end up listing far to many items.
So to keep it short:
MUSIC: I love Tool, Russian Circles, Karnivool and Porcupine Tree.
Electroswing is something I really love *dancing* too, but I don't
usually enjoy listening.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People. I adore being with people. Even if I don't know them, just
being in a group of energetic people makes me feel better. Maybe
this is why I like the theatre program so much...
Art. Not necessarily picture art (though that is great too) but the
always-ephemeral 'art' as a broad definition. Theatre, film, song,
dance; all of these are art and all of these are essential to the
formation and continuation of culture. Without art, humanity would

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ridiculous number of messages women receive on OKcupid, and how
I can best avoid adding to the drudge.
Tropes. DAMN YOU T.V. TROPES WIKI! You have ruined my life!
Metacognition. Thinking about thinking. Thoughts, and where they

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work in a restaurant. Friday is work day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Particle accelerators totally give me a hadron.
I'm on a dating site.
I play Dwarf Fortress. Sometimes, I wish I'd taken up heroin
Sometimes, I poop. It's true! Just don't tell anyone.
I will talk myself into obscurity with alarming regularity.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If the rest of my profile didn't convince you, I can't think of
anything else I could say to change your mind, but here goes:
I'm an off-beat, geeky poly dude, so if you're into that, go ahead
and message me. Fair warning though, I am gregarious like a
I'm also not one for sending messages back and forth endlessly. I'd
rather meet in person.
