Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. I'm Matt.
Soft-spoken but opinionated, I straddle introvert and extrovert. I
am shy in front of new people, but when the moment's right I can be
comfortable in the spotlight. I'm nerdy and cerebral, and I like
movies, baseball, and 90s music.
I like food a lot, but I'm no snob. I have my reservations about
Yelp, but I'll still use it for suggestions. When I cook for
myself, chances are good I've thrown together a spinach salad and a
grilled cheese sandwich.
I returned to SF two years ago after spending a couple years in
Samoa in the Peace Corps. Even though I've returned to the
corporate world and happy with my apartment, it still feels a
little strange to be back in America.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at happy hour with work friends, or getting a bite to eat at
Nopa, Little Star, My Tofu House, or the like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm not a big fan of the letter 'B'.

you are strong and opinionated. I'm looking for my complement; not
my fraternal twin. I am looking for someone who shares my values
but has a life of her own. It's cool if you're into makeup and high
heels, but I'm interested in what's below the surface. Mostly, I am
looking for someone to challenge me and then spoon.
