Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved to San Diego. I'm stoked to meet new people and explore
In general, I spend a lot of my time in the office, but I'm lucky
enough to like what I do and the folks with whom I work.
When they let me out, I try to stay active. I particularly enjoy
backpacking, sailing, and riding my motorcycle. When I'm laying
low, I like reading, writing (for pleasure rather than for work),
and heading out to whatever sounds like fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend of lot of time working. When I'm not at the 9-5, I'm
putting hours in on a new business or I'm working on this body of
fiction I'd someday like to finish.
I make a conscious effort to keep my quality of life high. There's
so much to see out there, and I'd like to see it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making awesome meals from random leftovers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I wrote my undergrad thesis on postcolonial French lit, so I have a
lot of favorite authors in that area. I'm a huge fan of a lot of
the canonical po-mo stuff: David Foster Wallace, Don Delillo,
Beckett, etc. I also dig stuff that's a little lighter; Ender's
Game was one of my favorite books ever.
My taste in movies tends to lean toward dark humor. I like Terry
Gilliam stuff. Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry (admittedly typical
hipster stuff). Huge fan of David Lynch (although I admit that my
seeing humor in his work is a little unusual).
I like a lot of different music. From Tom Waits to Nine Inch Nails
to Fleet Foxes to electronica. And quite a bit that isn't coming to
mind immediately. My taste in music is largely contextual:
expensively produced hip-hop is great for the gym; a dude with a
guitar is great for the park.
Food: just about everything, and I love to cook. Maybe we could
throw down in the kitchen some time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Water (the delicious kind or the kind you can jump in / sail
2. Me time
4. Pen and paper
5. A comfortable place to call home
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Words. I'm a writer, both for my paycheck and for the maintenance
of my sanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making a point of seeing something I haven't seen before.
Lately, I've been laying low on Fridays so I'm ready to go
adventure on Saturday.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You could show me around SD. Or you'd just be down to explore it
You like backpacking.
You know how to sail.
You want to race go-karts, or anything else really. I love stuff
that goes fast.
You write well but don't talk about your writing too much.
It's raining and you want to watch a movie.
It's sunny and you want to lounge in a park.
Or if you just want to grab a cup of coffee or a cocktail. I like
meeting people, and I feel like you know more about a person in
five real-life minutes than through any number of messages.
Besides, you were going to go grab a drink anyway.
