Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Alter-ego: normal guy, good job, nice house, nice car, Nice guy.
Laid back, good sense of humor, etc,
That is the me that most of the world knows.
The truth is a bit, um, less conventional.
I value close, meaningful relationships with people...not the
standard "we can date, then get engaged, then have 2.3 kids, then
retire, then die". Nothing wrong with any of these things, but the
relationship with people is my goal, not the "things".
I know that may not be the typical "norm", but I'm truly looking to
enjoy meaningful relationships with interesting, real people.
I have a really wide, deep range of knowledge, true nerd stuff. I
know movie stuff, I geek out about particle physics and
metaphysics, brane theory, crazy emo non-pc music, all kinds of
randomness. I really, truly enjoy the little things. I also want to
live to be many hundreds of years old, if only to see what the hell
happens next in this world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, and for the last several years, it's been career stuff.
I keep my son on the weekends, and almost all of my friends have
either married off, or moved away...so I ended up spending a lot of
Career has taken off pretty well, it's time to integrate other
people into my non-work life.Trying to change that; all work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy, right?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quoting movies, spouting off completely useless knowledge, and
talking about cars. I can't lie, I love cars, have since I was 13.
Oh, and Words With Friends.
Moving heavy things.
Not being offended by just about anything
Getting speeding tickets
Shaving my head
Enjoying non-crap beer
Trying to eat well, and not following through with it
Waiting too long to speak my mind
Cussing like a sailor, er, soldier....spent several years in the
Army, not sure I'll ever speak without some saltiness
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
First impression: man, that guy looks like a bouncer
Second impression: hey, he's a lot nicer than I thought he would
Third impression: This guy know's too much s*** about too much
Maybe that's due to my shaved head? Guess I look the part of the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I used to read all the time, but it's been a long time
since I've sat down with a book. I do keep up with the news and
current events, though. My typical morning is a cup of coffee and
an hour or so browsing yahoo news.
Music - Varied interests - NIN, Tool, HTDA, Type O Negative, Nick
Drake, Faith No More, Genesis, HEALTH, Daft Punk, Puscifer, System
of a Down, old Metallica, lots of '80s stuff, and lots of
classical. I'm really not a big fan of country (Johnny Cash and
Willie Nelson excluded), and most pop and R&B.
Movies - honestly, it's kind of embarrasing. I can usually quote
something from most movies (excluding a lot of chick flicks). I'm
very good at six degrees of Kevin Bacon. I'm secretly ecstatic that
I have a 15yo son...I can go see any cheesy action or sci-fi movie,
and blame it on him.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Um....hell, I dunno, air conditioning? - I'm hot natured.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The fact that on a long enough time scale, literally everything
that can happen, will happen.
Altered states of perception....how is one perception more valid
Why people have a tendency to reinforce my tendency not to trust
people...is it me?
How life has turned out, how it has not gone as I'd expected as a
younger man, and how I'd not have it any other way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for others to corrupt / others to corrupt me. Driving.
Stressing over work stuff. Ok, so there's no typical Friday night.
Potentially enjoying a nice beer or a good bourbon somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I had a mini-mullet and a mustache in high school. I also
drove a Fiero with t-tops. Hey, it was 1989...what can I say?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a conundrum....you present a certain face to the world, but
maintain a cool alter-ego behind closed doors. I.E., you have a
secret identity and an underground lair. Or, if you're just a
decently cool person who wants to chat about whatever. That works,
You've read through this, and you haven't uttered the words "eww"
or "gross" or "WTF"....if you got through this and said,
"hmmm"....step right up.
