Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm awesome at Scrabble, love watching documentaries, make
fantastic cocktails, cook pretty well, read everything, and stay up
way too late. I'm both logical and romantic. Most days I'm more
optimistic than cynical.
I grew up in England, Texas, and Norway, and have traveled a lot -
especially around Europe and India. Hard to pick a favorite, but I
really enjoyed Spain and Hong Kong.
I enjoy being with people who love laughter and affection, and are
curious about everything. I prefer face-to-face interactions over
anything else, and prefer texting to phone calls. I can be as
social as anyone, but at heart I’m an introvert who enjoys strong
connections a lot more than being a social butterfly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the day I run a small company. I'm passionate about my work,
but I'm pretty good at keeping it from taking over my entire
The rest of the time? I like to try out new restaurants a lot,
especially in SOMA and the Mission. I enjoy cooking and am a big
fan of food/drink projects.
Tennis is my one consistent sport. I cycle through other exercise
stuff. My last few have been half marathons (hate), Toughmudder
(love), and kickboxing (love). I'm interested in getting into
cycling and/or climbing.
I used to go to the museum a lot but then they closed it, so now
the arts for me mainly means seeing live music.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Scrabble (plus all sorts of other word and card games)

Recommending bars and restaurants

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read lots of contemporary fiction and all types of nonfiction. In
an effort to add more clichés to my life, I read Shantaram on a
trip to India.
I watch lots of movies of all kinds, but I'm especially partial to
documentaries, caper films, and dystopian themes. I really like
going to actual movie theaters.
My favorite music is live at The Indepndent, Rickshaw Stop, The
Fox, and The Fillmore. Metric, Lorde and The Head and the Heart
have been on repeat a lot lately.
Most of my TV watching consists of shows on AMC, HBO, and Showtime
on Sunday nights. I'm also pretty into Top Chef and can get sucked
into various food/cooking shows.
If they asked about comedians, I'd say I like Dave Chappelle, Louis
CK, and Aziz Ansari a lot.
My favorite foods are two super standard choices - sushi and steak.
Also love brussels sprouts way more than most. And sweet potatoes.
And spinach. And grilled cheese. This could go on for a long time.
I eat absolutely everything.
I drink stuff too. Alcohol-wise I'm partial to fancy cocktails,
whiskey, wine, and good beer. The rest of the time I drink coffee,
tea, and lots of sparkling water.
The six things I could never do without
