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, and 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, to
excessively cuddle with and to hop on planes and disappear into far
away lands together.
(I should clarify that this isn't an all or nothing proposition.
I'm open to it should the right person come along. Besides, you
don't always know right away.)
Two things are absolutely non-negotiable in my life*
If you do not live with kindness and gratitude (or at least aspire
to), this will not work. Let's save the messy VHS divvying and dog
custody litigation for the less self aware.
*Major Bonus: Mindfulness/Clarity
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. And now I create companies. Sometimes I sell them. Other
times, I help others realize their visions.
IMPORTANT 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.
To be clear, this doesn't mean I'm leaving next weekend and a
relationship with me is impossible. 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 more generally,
pull the trigger on opportunities/curiosities that arise. I'd love
to spend some time in Spain, Puerto Rico, and probably many other
places. A healthy dose of gypsy spirit/wanderlust would likely go a
long way toward a common bond.
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 40-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.

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.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hijacking this prompt
Some people take language for granted. Their reading extends to
Facebook posts and listicles. Their attitude - "whatever happens
Others love the art. They immerse themselves in it. Read great
authors. Underline beautiful phrases. Attempt their own creations.
Refine and rejoice. They expand their vocabulary, scope of
references and their style blossoms. Theirs is an endeavor of the
human spirit, not merely pragmatism. It's a labor of love. The
product, whether light or dark, is always somehow substantive.
I want a voracious reader. An enthusiastic writer. And a fiercely

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm attracted to women with a palpable, intoxicating
"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.

Suffocation on a stormy night.
Delicate and indestructible.
