Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Matt and I'm moving to NYC from Los Angeles for a new job
at the end of December 2015. It's a big change for me, but my
family lives in Manhattan so at least I'll be close to them. I'm
looking to meet new friends in the city (since I won't really know
anyone - I'm not originally from NYC) and hopefully that special
someone. See I'm used to meeting LA guys who are flaky and more
self-absorbed than selfless, so it would be nice to meet someone
who makes me feel special. I'm a passionate guy, and that means I'm
passionate about everything in my life. I'm passionate about
friends and family, I'm passionately driven to succeed in my career
and I put 100% into everything I do - that includes relationships,
work, etc. But I'm also an immature jokester who enjoys making the
corniest and crudest jokes you could ever think of. I'm a total
romantic - if I'm truly into a guy, I'll say and do all those mushy
romantic things that make single people want to puke (including me
when I'm single). So that's me in a paragraph.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well I'm about to move to NYC to work at a global brand consultancy
firm. I'm going to be working in their Verbal Identity group, which
means I'll be responsible for creating the voice and story behind
their brands. I'm excited to see what this entails, as I went to
school for advertising and worked as a copywriter at a toy company
up until this point. I just love coming up with fun taglines,
creative stories and exciting write-ups to sell products.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
planning things (I used to throw a HUGE Halloween party every year
in LA - it's kind of my obsession), singing karaoke (well actually
that depends on how you define "good"), giving advice (I'm much
better at giving advice than taking it) and making people laugh
(remember, the cruder and cornier the better).
The first things people usually notice about me

are my energetic personality, my corny sense of humor and my pecs
(if I'm meeting them naked of course - haha)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
That's a lot to ask in one section! I'm not going to lie - I'm not
an avid reader of books. I prefer magazines and online news sites
for my information. I subscribe to Entertainment Weekly and
Fangoria (yes, that's the horror movie magazine). Which brings me
to my incredible love for horror movies - my favorite is the
original Halloween from 1978. I also love the original Nightmare on
Elm Street, the first Saw, Scream 1, 2 & 4, the first Final
Destination, many 80s slasher flicks and really anything horror.
But I assure you I'm not a freak. Music - almost anything. I used
to limit my choices but now they are limitless. I love everything
from Kelly Clarkson and One Republic to Frank Sinatra and Stevie
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family
2. My friends
3. Generic answers to online profile questions
4. Horror movies
6. Athletic Activity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where I should be in my life at this age, and then I dismiss all
those thoughts and remember that everyone lives according to a

either having friends over to watch a movie, going out to a movie
or dancing at a club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

is that I have 3 testicles! HAHA No that's not true. The most
private thing I can admit here is that I'm a tiny bit afraid of the
waves in the ocean. I'm not the strongest swimmer so I always think
the ocean is going to swallow me up!

you're willing to put the time and energy into getting to know me.
It's not that I'm so incredibly complicated - it's just that I hate
it when people don't really care about getting to know you, or
become flaky after a few dates.
