Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, fellas! Thanks for checking out my profile.
First off, one thing you should note is that I’m on here for
friendship or casual dating. I’m not interested in any long-term
relationships right now, nor am I looking for a friend with
benefits. I’m really just seeking someone to go out with and have
I have a variety of interests, from movies to fashion to music to
video games to . . . whatever. I’m pretty open to new experiences,
and I like to be around people who are the same. There’s a lot to
experience in this world, and too many people limit their lives and
miss out on a lot of what the world has to offer.
Ideally, I’d like to find people who are educated, have a good
sense of humor, and like adventure. Someone who is confident and
happy with himself is a huge plus. Just be aware that arrogance
does not equate to confidence. If you’re someone whose sense of
self-fulfillment comes from attempting to make others seem or feel
lesser, then we’re not likely to get along.
I work as an editor, and I have a tendency to be a bit of an
English snob. If you message me, please use actual words! If you
send me textspeak, I'm likely not to respond.
Anyway, I encourage you to check out the info to the right for more
info on me. There are things about me (for example, being a vegan
and being agnostic) that make me a poor match for many people in
this area. It doesn't mean that if you're not vegan or if you're
religious that we won't get along, but these are decisions I've
made about my life that aren't going to change, so if they bother
you, you might want to reconsider contacting me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy myself as much as possible.
That's pretty much it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything I set my mind to.

Used to be my eyes. Now probably my very red hair. Either that or

I can't even think of where to start. I tend to be pretty eclectic.
Except I hate country. Really hate country.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dog Blitz
My cat Chess
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the rest of my life will be. Reaching 40 can make you
reevaluate how and with whom you spend your time. I'm trying to
determine exactly what I want out of the rest of my life and what I
need to do to achieve it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out and enjoying myself, talking to my best friend over
Skype, or relaxing with the dog and cat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I add it to my profile, it's not really private, right?
