Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's do this.
Let's go on awkward first dates. Let's figure each other out. Let's
get dressed up. Let's hang out. Let's brush up against each other.
Let's dance, dance, dance. Let's read to one another. Let's play
scrabble. Let's open up. Let's come up with cute nicknames. Let's
exchange gifts. Let's be dorks. Let's hold hands. Let's go out.
Let's stay in. Let's spoon. Let's say things we'll later regret.
Let's cry. Let's make up. Let's kiss. Let's make each other laugh.
Let's grow into each other. Let's write letters. Let's sing in
harmony. Let's collaborate on art projects. Let's explore. Let's
thumb wrestle. Let's accept each other's faults. Let's wish on
falling stars. Let's go hiking. Let's learn new skills. Let's
exchange mix CDs. Let's cross things off lists. Let's fly. Let's
shake things up.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a librarian
. I try to be stereotypically
"librarian" in all the good ways (super-powers, infinite knowledge,
etc.) while suppressing the negative tendencies (shushing
I have a ukulele
that I can't put down. I'm also looking for a band that needs a
player, but am pretty satisfied rocking out on my own.
Organized sports were never my thing, but I run quite a bit. I've
ran a couple marathons, a half dozen half marathons, and a few

I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One day, I was jogging by an elementary school and one of the kids
shouted from a third story window, "That man gotta big head!"
*update* A kid at the library I work at recently exclaimed out of
the blue, "Mr. Brian, you have a skinny neck!" So maybe I don't
have a big head after all, but it just seems that way in proportion
to my slim neck. Who knows?

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm probably reading or out with a few close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Watching The Newsroom has made me all teary eyed more than a few
times. I can admit that.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Just do it. And if you do decide to send me a message, thank you.
It's nice to get messages but I know this online dating thing can
be a frustrating and lonely experience and that it takes guts to
send a message to a man you don't know, hoping that you sound
witty/smart/interesting/sexy enough to elicit a response and/or
that he's not a creep or worse.
You can guarantee a response if you're into meditation/mindfulness
practice, are at least somewhat active/athletic, have a smart sense
of humor, play an instrument, OR need a karaoke pal.
