Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a musical, funny, educated guy with a tinge of sarcasm; and I'm
very good at being myself; hopefully you are too. It would
certainly help if we were attracted to eachother as well. I don't
like snobs or pretention very much. I LOVE to travel, and I love
other people who love to travel. It's harder than you would think
to find this, even though most people say they do!
I think it's really weird when people define themselves by the TV
shows they watch. Don't you? I like TV only for watching movies...
I want to stress that I'm not looking for someone exactly like me.
That's boring! ... but just so you know, I tend not to be attracted
to TV addicts :)
I really want to find someone who enjoys doing things. Fun things
like camping, driving up North (or South), surfing, hiking,
watching live baseball, exploring new restaurants, seeing a movie
(on a Tuesday. The late show.) If you're still reading /
interested, by all means let me know; we're probably fairly
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my job! I work for a company that protects forests and
wildlife in the tropics. I get to travel to Africa, Latin America
and Southeast Asia a lot! I love to travel and consider experience
with other cultures of primary importance...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ok, well I'm a fairly musical person. I play guitar. I sing a bit.
I love to see live music. I am a very good judge of character.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading Out of Africa right now (I know, why haven't I yet??), I
loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (check it out), and anything by
Hemingway. I admit that I love Guns, Germs and Steel and anything
that explains phenomena using geographic principles.
I'm a movie freak. I'll go any night of the week, and sometimes do!
I work at the Telluride Film Festival every year I like them so
much... I'd have to say my favorite all time movie is Wild at
Heart. I also really like movies like Buffalo '66, Citizen Kane,
Fight Club and Adam Sandler comedies.
Music: This is where I lose most people... I listen to heavy music.
Yes, I like metal, but I also like many other types of music. I am
into Stoner Rock (which mostly stems from Black Sabbath). My
favorite band of all time is Kyuss. They turned into Queens of the
Stone Age. I feel really strongly about music, and I'm tired of
having people look down upon folks who like heavier music as
"immature" or "angry". I can promise you that I'm most at peace
listening to a good mid-tempo chugga-chugga Exodus riff. I'll
explain more at our first meeting :)
Food: I pretty much like everything but onions and olives. I'm
convinced that Satan himself invented onions...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. People who are different than I am
5. Social Justice
6. My passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music mostly... then how to stop deforestation in the tropics. I
think about women a lot too, but not always in the way you think.
Sometimes in that way though!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either ripping it up watching a movie after dinner, or hanging out
with friends at a non-clubby bar. Sometimes I just stay home and
watch a movie...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh I don't know; aren't these good topics to be discussed in
person? I'll tell you then!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I've been told my pictures all look different. If you're curious
what I look like in person, I'd be more than happy to show you.
