Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm self-deprecating, cynical, and can convey various levels of
disgust/contempt with facial expressions alone. Not much of a life
skill, but I get the point across.
I love to read and play boardgames. Especially the boardgames where
you get to build alliances (and break them) and cut deals with
opponents in order to win (the Game of Life is far more complex
than one would think).
It would be nice to meet someone who's up for some traveling, even
if it's nothing more exciting than a trip across the border. I
manage to visit Europe every couple of years, I have family
overseas. I'm thinking Iceland is up next, along with the US west
coast. And a tour of Japan is something I'm looking at in the
I'm back in college (stop laughing). I'm studying accounting right
now, which is something I'm enjoying; wish I'd discovered this
earlier. After this little adventure, either more education (CGA),
work in a financial regulation capacity, and/or open my own
business. I've got a few options, and I like them all.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still waiting for the Doors of Stone to be published by Patrick
Rothfuss (if you're a girl and you get this reference our marriage
Apparently I'm good at taxes and accounting type stuff. So I'm
gonna run with it and see where college takes me next.
Over the last few years I became completely dissatisfied with
myself and where I was at. And this includes stuff besides school.
I'll be ashamed of myself if I don't complete learning Spanish by
the end of 2015. I also just started yoga and I'm rather liking it
(although maybe it was a little ambitious to make a hot yoga class
my first experience...)
So if you have a new and interesting activity to introduce me to,
go right ahead.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're quirky, complex, nerdy, geeky, not a prude, not conservative
in values, not too annoyingly hipster and won't dump all the
planning/decision making in my lap . Any or all of the above are
You'll go upside the back of my head when I make an inappropriate
comment. Or laugh along with me. Preferably the latter, but the
former is kind of understandable now and again.
You don't think female initiative is a criminal offense. You'd be
surprised how much it's appreciated when the girl can be bothered
to make the first move.
***New thought: Don't bother messaging/responding to me if you've
already decided that online dating is a waste of time/beneath you,
or have otherwise shot me down before meeting me.
