Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*I'm doing the long distance thing, so "activity partners" are
really more what I'm looking for.
If it's not weird, why do it?
I love traveling, but hate being a tourist. Actually, I've decided
I love being a tourist where nobody goes. Boring small towns that
we all try to escape from are fun to visit in every country.
When I graduated college I lived in a van for five months. I was
mostly FUNemployed and not having a lot of money but a lot of time
I got into running and I've now ran five full marathons and lots of
shorter races and I'm starting to get into triathlons. I like being
outside and playing sports but I never watch them on tv (unless
someone is having a party and there are snacks and drinks!).
Not too proud to dig through dumpsters and my best find to date is
definitely an ice-cream maker.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living life to the meh, close enoughest!!!!!!!
The last several years I've spent a lot of time biking around and
going swimming in different lakes in the summer or skiing around
and skating on lakes in the winter.
I worked for seven years as a scientist at a university on
instrumentation of climate change research. Just finished my MBA in
London and trying to solve the climate change problem from another
angle. Back in MN for a time and like to get to know people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
setting goals. Last year for New Years I said I was going to cut
more frozen pizza into six slices instead of eight, and I think I
averaged about 90% of my frozen pizza in six pieces this year. It
took a while to get good at, but for anything in life, dedication

All my bling. That or the large men in leather jackets flanking me.

I hate cliches, but music is super. Anything done in earnest
emotion. Most of my recent Youtube videos are various death metal
or anarchist hip-hop, The Cure, and Brandi Carlile. Scissor
Sisters, Ghost (Swedish metal band, not Japanese band) and Grizzly
Bear are probably my top shows of the last 12 months.
Eating as a whole is pretty top-notch. Vegan to meat lovers I like
it all. Except for some reason shrimp and brussel sprouts. Brussel
sprout's reputation is totally deserved. I have no idea why I
stopped liking shrimp, it happened around college. No food
poisoning or anything, just woke up one day and decided I didn't
like them anymore. I like seafood in general, though. I prefer
Books, Movies, and Shows I tend toward nerd things. Tolkien,
Gaiman, etc, and some classics and comedies. My most recent TV
series was Dr. Who. There are so many movies I haven't seen it is a
little ridiculous. People often toss out quotes and I will have no
idea what they're talking about. TV and movies aren't usually
something I choose when I'm by myself, but I like the idea of
This whole section can get quite formulaic and boring.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bicycles. I bought a used bike when I moved to London and it is
definitely the best way to get around. I've only been yelled at a
few times and haven't felt that scared for my life much at all. I
can't be unhappy on a bike.
I got hit on my bike a couple months ago. Not the most pleasant
thing that's happened to me. Splayed out in the road just south of
the Waterloo roundabout. I'm mostly fine, as is my bike. I've got a
bruise on my calf and still haven't been running since. My rear
derailleur is a little messed up, but we're mostly fine. Both my
bike and I were able to ride away and the driver was quite
apologetic. I maintain that I'd rather have my head cracked open on
the road than be treated as undignified cattle on the
Music. Playing instruments, seeing shows, or just listening through
headphones. I get really depressed when I don't have enough music
in my life.
I'm concerned that this is a binding contract and that if I finish
filling it out and a situation does come up where I can only take
six things I'll be forced to use what my okcupid profile says. I
wouldn't want the mutants/zombies/remnants of humanity to think I
am a liar in a post-apocalyptic world. Certainly if it's a robot
overlord the internet will be sentient and will double check these
facts. Or maybe this just shows a fear of commitment on my part?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Maps. People's subjective perspective on space and time. I like
people to hand draw maps/timelines from memory. I should think that
we are all traveling on the same reference plane (on earth - no
Lorentz transformation) so lengths and time should be the same for
everyone but it never seems quite like that's how it works.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Writing novellas to and about my crushes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Friends would probably describe me as a very positive person, but
in reality I've got a pretty nihilistic view of the universe. There
are literally billions of people who don't know you or I exist and
never will. And this is just on one insignificant planet. But hey,
good luck searching for your soul mate.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Not a soothsayer and not really sure about immediate future, but
love to chat over drinks. I'm seeing a girl who lives in Colombia,
but I'm always up for concerts from formal to punk shows in
basements. Or art museums. Or beers or coffees. All my friends have
moved to suburbia and have kids, and uptown or NE are my usual
haunts so if you want to runaround there, holler at a fool.

Metallica chopping their hair. This dude is pro-mullets. And
Or just cause, I really hate it when people have specific things

Fuck it, do it. Better to regret something you did, than something
you didn't do.
Sorry, really hate cliches, but included that one.
