Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
hmm, this part is awkward. i am here, which means im single, whoop!
where to begin? im unabashedly myself and tend to speak my mind,
which id like to think is informed. i ride my bike everywhere, even
in the winter. this bespeaks my need to be very active. when the
weather is warm, i tend to make a heaping salad and bring it to
prospect park where i eat said food, read a bit, listen to
podcasts, and nap on a big old blanket. then, i race around the
park on my bike like a madwoman listening to the likes of thriller
or lcd soundsystem until i am nice and sweaty before going to the
climbing gym. this, to me, is a great afternoon. ive traveled
extensively (and mostly alone), had a whole slew of jobs, been in
love and lust, and am pretty grounded. i prefer having a few close
friends over a throng of acquaintances, yet still seem to have the
latter. i am good to those i care about, and, at the very least, i
am self-aware; i definitely aim to please, especially if you are a
wanderlustful, outdoorsy, woefully-handsome, socially-progressive,
atheistic type who lives in brooklyn. not requirements, per se, but
i do know what i like.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
it's great to love your work (i do), especially when it's
life-affirming and impassioned; i think it's equally important to
cultivate what you do outside of it. let's talk about that instead.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
reading a map. going on instinct.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
steinbeck, mishima, juno diaz
wong kar wai, the coen brothers, almodovar
yo la tengo, the black keys, the talking heads
ramen, cheese, duck liver pâté
more on food: eating well, both health-wise and yum-wise, is very
important to me. you can tell how happy i am by how frequently i am
cooking. these days, it's a lot! that said, i am active enough to
eat and drink whatever i like whenever i like in whatever quantity
more important favorites: food coops, transitional seasons, the
great outdoors, running around tossing a frisbee, kayaking the east
river, shavasana, jade plants, old friends in new places, cheap and
delicious wine, strong coffee, community gardens, topless beaches,
word play, eschewing the many capitalist pitfalls.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
im partial to my bed, my bike, and sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
food and sex. people. culture. the future. woodworking. happiness.
whether sacrificing booze is worth becoming a stronger climber (I
lean towards no). gardening. privilege. efficiency. honesty.
change. the power of silence. music. good characterization.
intentions. community. how i would rather be outside.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
most likely biking somewhere to eat and drink which will hopefully
lead to dancing, obviously preferably to live music. or sitting in
my apartment reading, tending to my plants, cooking up something
good, and practicing my banjo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
very little is private; i share and share.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you bike and climb. i dont want to say these are absolutely
necessary, but hot damn, it seems ideal.
- this year, I'm going to camp out in Patagonia for a few weeks and
later, I'm going to bike for a while in the Loire Valley. these
kind of trips should probably sound awesome to you.
- you are well-read and have a voice and like women and are great
in bed and are attuned to nature and enjoy dancing and tip well and
stand for the right things but arent always peachy-clean and have
had moments of darkness, too.
- you are a bona fide adult. aint no half-stepping.
