Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is where I'm at: http://markmanson.net/fuck-yes
For the first 16 years of my life, I refused to accept anything
other than heavy metal as music. Then, one day, I was not angry
anymore. And my tastes changed.
Similarly, for the past few years, I've been avoiding anything that
might look like a serious relationship. Recently, I've gone soft. I
want a partner. Not necessarily a wife. But a proverbial "ride or
die chick." Someone to be gratuitously nice to, cuddle with
excessively and hop on planes and disappear into far away lands
(This isn't an all or nothing proposition, but I'm open should the
right person come along.)
Two things are non-negotiable in my life
If you do not live with kindness and gratitude (or aspire to), this
will not work. Let's save the messy VHS divvying and dog custody
litigation for the less self aware.
Mindfulness & clarity strongly preferred.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a creative person. I create things. I used to create music and
events. Now, I create companies. Sometimes I sell them. Other
times, I help others realize their visions.
FUN FACT: I HAVE NO PERMANENT RESIDENCE
In 2013, I sold my company which allowed me to pick up and move. So
I did. And then I kept moving. Over the past 2 years, I've lived in
Colombia, Mexico, NY, Chicago and LA (FAQ: subleases, not
To be clear, this doesn't mean I'm leaving next weekend and a
relationship with me isn't possible. It means that I'm location
independent. I can be/work from wherever I want. It also means I
can escape horrible winters for sunny ones, and pull the trigger on
opportunities that arise. Barcelona is on deck for this year.
A healthy dose of gypsy spirit/wanderlust would go a long way
toward a common bond.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing what I feel is right. Bleeding red.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am the love child of Henry Rollins and Mario Lopez with a 10-day
My dimples get me out of trouble regularly. My hair attracts the
petting hands of strangers and kin alike.
Stick around for 5 minutes and you'll notice that my mouth is as
likely to get me into the doghouse as the best of graces - often
within those same 5 minutes
Also, that I am a better dancer than them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Talking Heads. Bill Withers. Depeche Mode. Everything soulful.
(Also, Chopin, Satie, Ravel, Bartok, etc. Ideally, on solo piano.
Optional cellos, preferably, save the violins.)
Charcuterie plates. Tacos al pastor. Non-battered wings.
Low-and-slow BBQ. All forms of braised meats.
Books - usually the ones for smart people. Usually non-fiction, but
I love me some old Hank Bukowski.
Podcasts. Yes. Please. All the time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hood people. (It rhymed. Work with me.)
As for objects, I got rid of 90% of mine a few years ago. I'm not
opposed, just not attached. I'm much happier for it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Paradoxes. Bill Withers. Mike Tyson.
Taboos. Stillness. Change.
"Every sinner has a future, every saint has a past."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"She was a whole lot of woman, almost enough for two."
Eyes that make others smile.
Smiles that make others melt.
Hair, gorgeous silk, draping over innocent shoulders and curious
Hips, inviting hands. To be held when looking up again.
Kisses that dizzy.
Voice like bossa nova breeze.
Gentle sunrise. Mindful thunder.
Raindrops against a roof.
Warmth on a chilly day.
Suffocation on a stormy night.
Delicate and indestructible.
