Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First thing, first: You get exactly one selfie and zero duckface
and/or scrunched up forehead pics. Next: please have something of
substance to say rather than spewing out some contrived cliche like
"work hard, play hard" or "living life to the fullest".
Fresh to Manayunk. Let's be friends?
As an extremely active individual, I find it rather difficult to
spend time with things which keep me from moving. I am not shy
about sweating, doing burpees, or cycling through equipment at the
gym. I ride mountain bike, and have been riding, jumping, and
tearing around on bikes constantly since the age of 12. I like
participating in sports in general. Snowboarding is a major passion
of mine. Mountains and oceans alike have a magical draw on my
Je parle un petie peux, mais, je ne comprend pas avec le tete de

filles. Please don't send me messages en francais.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The internet. I have a nack for finding the best of the worst of.
Here is an example that may hit close to home:
I also spotted an OKC user who managed to cram 8 duck face selfies
into 5 pictures. I think that means it's time to switch to a pay
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...How is it possible that Trader Joe's crammed so much goodness
into a bag of mint tea and a tablespoon of mesquite honey?
Are Chiquita bananas actually genetically superior to Dole, or is
it just the clever stickers that adorn them which make them taste
so much better? They DO taste better.
Why is it I hate the word "nowadays"? ...Nails meet
I am taking a busy fast. "Busy" is not as virtuous as one might
think. Also, busy does not equal productive. "Busy" is an excuse
and a symptom of poor time management. If you're constantly "busy",
don't expect much interest from me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Can we call this a typical night out instead of specifically
"Friday?" I'm pretty sure that's what it's asking for. I like to go
on mini adventures. Sometimes it involves dancing salsa or playing
Quizzo for a few hours. Or a show or simply sitting to admire the
nighttime peacefulness of the Art Museum steps and the Water Works.
Or I could be out in West Chester for karaoke or a few drinks and
catching up with friends.
Then there are the adventure weekends which involve any of the
following: beaching, biking, camping, canoeing, cooking, hiking,
snowboarding...doing, living, being.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One: I looked at your pictures first. I'm a visual learner. I am
very interested in your activity photos: snowboards, mountain
bikes, rock climbing, whatever it is that you DO.
-----Super swoon for overhead oly bars. <3 <3
---------Your 90 degree obliquity mirror selfie is only fooling
Two: I am a better cook than you. Seriously.
Three: While I appreciate glasses, and the women bold enough to
wear them, "transitions" lenses freak me out.
Four: I blab about myself, my life, my hobbies, my interests when
I'm nervous. I promise it's not an ego thing. Take it as a
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...You're a smart cookie.
...You have an adventurous spirit.
...You live your life with effervescent positivity.
...You take care of yourself mentally and physically.
...You like what you've read...if you've read. In all likelihood, I
will not message you first. Not that I don't want to, but that I
know the typical quality of messages you ladies are receiving: "Oh
hey, another illiterate, shirtless OKCupid dude? DELETE!"
...You have a strong internal drive to be able to keep pace with
someone as active as me. When I'm working, I'm further cementing my
passive income. When I'm not doing that, I'm in the gym (Pro-tip:
work out with me...). When I'm not in the gym, I'm outside being
active(Pro-tip 2: hiking, biking, snow sports, beach fun, urban and
rural exploration are all part and parcel). When I'm not doing
that, I'm tinkering with something containing a motor (recently my
motorcycle-you should want to ride with me). And if you checked all
those places and still haven't found me, I MAY be enjoying a nice
hot cup of Joe or a frosty adult beverage. Or I'm sleeping. I have
time for people who I want in my life, but I have no time for those
who are inactive.
