Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an INFJ Sagittarius. My aura is violet. I am fucking
I once played the angriest man in 12 Angry Men.
I am originally from Texas and have been in NYC for the last 13
years. I am not stereotypically Texan. I don't own a gun, but grew
up with them. I've never ridden a horse because I'm allergic and I
don't think you should ride your friends. I am a hard core leftist.
I never once voted for George W. Bush. However, my high school
experience was pretty much exactly like 'Friday Night
I like nothing more than a good parenthetical statement.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I run one of the homeless outreach programs for City of New York.
My days are a delightful mix of paperwork and crazy.
My job is wonderful, but pretty high stress (There's a bit of a
homelessness problem in NYC. I don't know if you've heard.).
Because of this, I have tried and am trying to build a peaceful,
meaningful life for myself. And thus, I have a strict no drama,
solid honesty, mutual respect policy. I have no capacity for
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spelling. Laundry. Driving. Musical things. Naming pets. Turning
any party into a dance party. Using iPhone iconography to tell a
story. The Robot. Continually hatching a plan for the perfect
crime. Piecing things together (ie. Stories or IKEA furniture).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I have likely just said something strange,
inappropriate, or profound. I am often quoted. I am known to verb a
noun. Or noun a verb.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Salman Rushdie, Jonathan Safran Foer, Alice Munro, Gabriel
Garcia Marquez (I recently re-read '100 Years of Solitude.' It was
so beautiful I almost died.), Ann Patchett, Anton Chekov, Maya
Angelou, Kurt Vonnegut, stuff about social issues and politics. I'm
in two bookclubs--one that reads and one that drinks.
TV: The Wire, Friday Night Lights, The Newsroom, The West Wing, the
fake news. HGTv. Probably any show that will be awesome and then
taken off the air after a season. Occasional sports (Mainly college
football. Hook 'em Horns.)
Movies: Drop Dead Gorgeous; Angels in America; all of the
Christopher Guest movies; Groundhog Day; To Kill a Mockingbird;
most movie musicals; all Will Ferrell movies; almost anything with
superheroes. I do not like scary movies as I do not like to be
scared; do not go for the gratuitously violent.
Music: I really do listen to everything. My iPod (it's a real iPod)
ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. I have been known to
enjoy catchy hold music. I am deeply committed to the survival of
the mixtape. I will teach you to like country music.
Food: I have allergies, so my food tastes are limited and
complicated. But I'm good a navigating a menu.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fancy pens. Good and meaningful work. Non-digital books. Tacos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pigeons. Sweaters. Social worker stuff. Politics. All of the times
on cruise ships when people go missing and all they leave behind is
a lonely pair of shoes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally exhausted, so I just go home. This week, I'm planning a
trip to Ikea (This could apply to almost any Friday, as I am almost
always planning a trip to Ikea.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suffer from a life-long fear of the Hulk.
