Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’ve lived in a variety of places in the South and Midwest.
Although I don't have an accent, I compulsively open doors for
people and have been known to say ma'am on occasion. I also have a
generous, if slightly dorky, laugh. A friend of mine described my
sense of humor as “wry.” I’ve spent a big chunk of my life in one
art school or another, and I don’t regret a minute of it. This is
my tenth year in Los Angeles, which I have decided is long enough
to call it “home.” I love the quality of life here, the sunshine,
and even the occasional deluge. I enjoy the beach, although I spend
more time in the water than on the sand. I’m generally having a
good time, but of course, I have my days.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I’m going to do broad strokes here. Books include Madame Bovary and
A Confederacy of Dunces. For music, I cut my teeth as a kid on
David Bowie and Nick Cave, and they both still matter to me. Most
of the movies I love were made in the seventies, including Dog Day
Afternoon and Network. I also have a soft spot for English gangster
movies. I don’t watch a whole lot of TV, but I do like Entourage,
Deadwood, and some of the other HBO shows I’ve seen. Food – dark
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends or home with Netflix. Both are enjoyable.
