Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm Max, and at this very second, I'm probably either really
sleepy or REALLY excited about something.
Important facts about me:
- I like when local businesses have a shop cat who chills out with
you while you're in the checkout line. I am an expert
- I think "get a thicker skin" is always worthless advice.
- My favorite color is eggplant purple.
- MBTI types are fun to think about, even though they're
scientifically meaningless! Mine is ENFP, and the cheesy
descriptions tend to be pretty spot on for me.
Now that we're intimate, let's get some standard deal-breakers out
of the way.
POLYAMORY: I am open to many possibilities.
It would be splendid to meet and date a
whatever-it-is-you-call-a-"soul mate" when you're too much of a
stubborn realist to actually use the term "soul mate". "Spirit
It's also great to just meet delightful people and see what
I'm currently in a committed non-monogamous relationship with
someone who also has other involvements. No interaction is
required, but I do love it when everyone ends up being
KINK: Kink and D/s are very important to me. I am submissive! If
that's a turn-off for you, or there simply isn't a dominant bone in
your body, we probably should not date.
FEMINISM: Inclusive feminism is very important to me.
I do not write people off just because they are "anti-feminist"; as
a Recovering Nice Guy, I try to stay mostly quiet & supportive
in feminist circles, and shoulder some of the emotional labor by
serving as a guide to positive understanding for other skeptical
dudes who don't "get it" yet.
PIZZA: Pizza is very important to me. I know, I know... it's rather
forward to bring up pizza before we've even met, but I'm just
sayin', good luck finding another guy on this site who likes pizza
as much as I do. I'd eat it every day if I could. You don't have to
eat any, but I will countenance no judgment of my penchant for a
plain cheese slice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a senior engineer at a small web development consulting
studio. I mentor other programmers, provide guidance for startup
founders, and make a LOT of bulleted lists. (Oh yeah, and I guess
there are some computers and programming in there somewhere.)
Sometimes I speak at meetups & conferences, but I'm not
important enough to have been protectively invited to one yet
My hobbies span far and wide: I fence competitively (foil and
épée), draw & paint, play a lot of games (both board- and
video-), and try to learn a new skill every couple of months. Last
was woodworking, next up is comedy improv.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking complex ideas and explaining them simply. (Go ahead, ask me
to explain something about the internet / programming / games /
fencing. I double dragon dare you!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: (in no particular order) Kiki's Delivery Service, Groundhog
Day, and Pacific Rim.
Shows: Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Firefly, and
Scrubs will always be a little magical to me. I enjoyed Lost, Black
Books, Sense8, Orphan Black, and a host of others, too.
Books: Black Sun Rising by C. S. Friedman, Jitterbug Perfume by Tom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
