My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Canadian-American West Coast kid.

I'm pretty mentally healthy and I don't lack anything vital in my life. I live in a cool place, I do cool things, I know cool people. I'm gainfully employed, adequately housed, and self sufficient. I love first dates but don't take them too seriously, I am fairly direct about what I like and if I'm interested, and I'd really just like to meet people operating on a similar wavelength. I also can come across as kind of a jerk in text form because it's hard to add levity to a textual self summary, but re-read this paragraph again and imagine I have a sense of humor.

I can talk to you about gardening, sociological theories of structural inequality, proper care of amphibians, what it's like living in Canada vs Portland vs SoCal vs The Middle of Goddamn Nowhere, or how to cook authentic enchiladas.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Kicking ass, taking names, standing out like a sore thumb in the hood.

I work with foster kids and their parents to help put families back together. Sometimes I get to hold babies or play legos. Most of the time I get to send faxes and wonder if it's 1994.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I paint tiny birds in watercolor and I grow a hell of a houseplant. I have strange pets that thrive, too.

I also balance spreadsheets pretty well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will be the one to introduce myself at a party, grab a beer, and make a new friend. I am tall, the right kind of chubby, and facially symmetrical.

I am also a enthusiastic story teller, and I love those who are the same. Thank you, OKC, for providing endless "bad first date" stories.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Embarrassing paperbacks with dragons and werewolves on the cover, coupled with maudlin New England-based literary fiction and inscrutable 1960s science fiction.

Conan the Barbarian/Destroyer, Dad Movies of the Nineties, and Wes Anderson as a whole, The Life Aquatic in particular.

I can lose whole weekends to high budget premium channel dramas, David Attenborough harassing animals, and every horrible TLC documentary ever broadcast at 3am.

Neutral Milk Hotel, Hole, Interpol, Bright Eyes, The Pixies, Telekinesis, Built to Spill, Bikini Kill, The Smiths, Modest Mouse, The Magnetic Fields. I call this the "Caucasian Mid Twenties Mix."

Ethnic food is ideal, preferably spicy. In fact, it's close to mandatory.

Sidenote, I love the hell out of podcasts right now and am taking recommendations. Favorites of the moment are Judge John Hodgman, Sawbones, Savage Love, and Skeptics Guide to the Universe.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I need a clean home, green plants, fluffy pillows, min. 5 hours of sunlight, 7+ hours of sleep a night, and constant internet access.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I mailed those court documents, phosphorous-calcium ratios, whether to walk or drive, and whether my dog really loves me or is just happy to be fed.

To be fair, I do feed my dog really fancy food, so I'm not against buying her love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, we cook and hang out and watch movies and play cards. Sometimes we get drunk and go dancing, more often we engage in ruining friendships with wii Mario games and good natured gossip. Or I'm at home with the dog watching Jurassic Park. Again.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am deathly afraid of velociraptors.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... You can hold a conversation and speak passionately about at least a few things, and I promise to do the same.

... You are a coffee snob and want to direct me to a new cafe.

... You want to argue with me about some pretentious bullet point in my clearly too-long profile.

... You're open to my body type. As is clearly evident, I am plus size, and no matter how cool I am and how well we get along, without mutual attraction things will only end in disappointment.

Respect and confidence are both appreciated.
