Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an adult human male and recovering academic. I had assumed for
some time that by this point I would be just about finished with my
PhD and maybe already be a brilliant professor of something or
other. That did not happen. Also, it's probably too late for my
original childhood plan of being an astronaut. I'm in the process
of coming up with something else. In the meantime I am working
several different jobs, writing a lot (a mostly useless habit of
many former academics I think), enjoying city life while
fantasizing about the wilderness, eating paleo/primal food, and
generally thriving in pretty much every way.
I have formed a very rewarding and successful partnership with:
You should check her out. I spend most of my time with her.
I enjoy making my own fun and my own soap. I do not spend money in
bars or restaurants and the only places I usually go out to are the
homes of friends, public parks and gardens, and museums/art
galleries. My favourite activities are reading books, walking
around in the woods, and drinking wine and dancing in low lighting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

-Whistling while I work.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, writing, research, dealing with vicious animals, sprinting
short distances, lifting heavy things, reaching things in high
places, skinning rabbits, eating quickly, growing a beard.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

eating in public.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My instinct here is to be snarky and say things like oxygen, water,
food, etc. However, that's probably not the point of the question,
so I will say books, friendship, fresh food, the company of
beautiful women (an important subset of friendship), silence, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sustainability, space exploration, food, women, evolution, the
super-massive black hole at the center of the galaxy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday night used to be arts and crafts night but now that usually
happens on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Piercings of any kind really freak me out. It's almost a phobia.
Yes, even the ears... maybe especially the ears. I'm sorry. No, you
can't fix me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I do occasionally send messages, but I mostly decline to get lost
in the constant barrage of "hey beautiful," "hey how are you
today," etc. it seems the ladies get on here, so I definitely
encourage you to send me a message if you'd like to. Just because
I've looked at your profile and haven't said hi doesn't mean I
wouldn't want to talk to you.
Message me especially if:
-We have a match percentage over 90 OR we have a match percentage
under 50 (those have been some of the most interesting interactions
I've had so far.) Or, yknow what? Anywhere in between as well,
-You want to be friends with me.
-You also dislike wearing shoes and pants.
-You want to come over and do arts and crafts with a chill crowd of
-You want to play some cool board games.
-OR you are a sassy older lady with a ton of money and you want to
take me out to fancy parties and expensive dinners. I can clean
your pool or scrub the deck of your yacht or whatever.
