Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

When someone describes themselves as a fun-loving optimist in the

More to the point: I can't take OKC seriously, so I guess rather
than talking about the things I like (like, say, camping, hiking,
movie marathons, baseball, football, writing, video games, and long
road trips), I'll mock this section and pretend I'm better than
I was raised by a hippie and a former stand-up comic, so I'm not
sure I ever even had the potential to be normal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I was 15, I came to realize no one pays you to be an ass, so I
went to college and at least became a smart ass instead. And then I
got a job as a TV production coordinator because apparently I had
no compunction about being a Los Angeles cliche for a living. Then
I got fed up with it, quit abruptly, and now I'm a motherfuckin'
mailman. A what!? Yeah, a mailman. I walk 10 miles a day in shorts
through the suburbs, inventing elaborate stories about the boring
lives of my customers. Somehow, it's been more rewarding and
relaxing than any other post-college profession I've had.
I write a lot in my spare time. We should get together so I can
talk all about it for two hours until you order your dinner to-go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Finding a way to blame all of my personal shortcomings on having a
-Watching Law and Order marathons to make up for the fact I
couldn't afford law school.
-Beating my 10yr old half-brother in 1-on-1 basketball. Kid can't
shoot for shit.
-Senseless trivia. If you've got a thing for guys who can win gift
cards at crappy pubs, I'm a panty-dropper.
-Most anything baseball related
-Recognizing a 15 year old Simpsons reference. But not a 14 year
old one, because that's when it sucked.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look like about 50 different famous white guys, none of whom
look alike. This list is ridiculous, and full of names that are
both complimentary and insulting. And none of them are accurate. Go
ahead and try to name (a legitimate) one that I haven't
Probably that I'm not smiling. But it's mainly my co-workers who
tell me that, and it's mainly because of them that I'm not smiling.
I give them a menacing stare.
That I am the pinnacle of bland hetero-normative fashion. I rock a
T-shirt and jeans like I invented the shit.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the person who first said "shoot for the moon, because even if
you fall short, you'll end up amongst the stars" had a really
fucking awful grasp on astronomy.
How all of the most ambitious people I know are also the least
talented people I know.

Sometimes I look at profiles on here and say to myself "she's too

I have a fear of flying, and I usually spend about the week before
every flight I take obsessively reading Wikipedia articles about
plane crashes because that's healthy behavior.

You don't care that when/if we're together, I tell my parents that
