Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(I live in Woodside, work in Palo Alto. OKC zipcode lookup puts me
in Redwood City with no way to edit it).
I like to hold hands in public. I like to hug hello and kiss
goodbye. I like to cuddle on the couch and spoon in bed (not the
whole night, kinda hurts my shoulder after a while).
I'm funny and kind, but also kinda obnoxious sometimes too.
I've also got characteristics that are usually considered to be
mutually exclusive: I'm a tech geek with an obsessive-compulsive
streak for working out; I'm pretty good with both chess pieces and
motorcycles; I can tell the dirtiest jokes you've never heard but
am amazingly good with children; I love playing sports and hate
watching them; I can fix your computer but still kick your
meat-head ex-boyfriend's ass (you remember him, the tall one with
the big arms and tight t-shirts with the puzzled look on his face
whenever you used polysyllabic words?) ... that kind thing.
Chicks dig me and guys want to be like me. Or maybe girls roll
their eyes at me and guys laugh at me behind my back. It can be
hard to tell.
My Myers-Briggs is STFU. I'm a Gemini but I don't believe in
astrology, which is totally typical of Geminis. I'm a devout
atheist. I bought an old girlfriend a mood ring and it totally
worked: when she was happy, it turned blue; when she was mad, it
left a big red mark on my forehead.

I start companies with widely varying degrees of success. I worked
part time at a philanthropic foundation; turns out giving away
money is hard, assuming you want anything good to come of it. Now I
work part time advising a big tech company, it supports my startup

Buenos Aires to Baghdad and have been over and around much of the

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering where you are.
Also, I spend a fair amount of time thinking about the creatures I
love. I never think about sex. Then work/money. Sometimes sex. Then
responsibilities. Then sex again. Then things that I find funny.
Then playing. Plus and also sex.
At least I'm honest about it. I think anyone who doesn't have "sex"
in his or her answer is either lying or is so repressed as to be
dangerous to trust. Like might show up to work with an assault
rifle in order to make a few punctuated points about how unfair it

the government doesn't take it away when it really belongs in a
museum kind of repressed.

Seriously? Okay, just for a minute. You are someone who believes in
herself, is grounded, well-rounded and emotionally stable. Someone
who holds herself to high standards in all aspects of her life but
still has a sense of humor. Someone I can see myself someday
trusting with the rest of my life, someone I feel deep down is or
will be a good mother to her children, someone whom I just know is
a solid person the first time I meet her ...
Apparently this is all too much to ask so, I dunno, maybe I'll just
get a dog.
