Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So lets be honest...nobody likes writing online profiles.
Moreover, if the conversations I've had so far are accurate no one
likes reading them either. With that in mind, I'm going to try a
new approach to the typically superfluous online dating profile by
provide a few interesting, funny, and noteworthy facts about
myself. In theory (fingers crossed) this should help the two of us
decide if we're interested in grabbing a drink. Which is kind of
the point to all this, I'd think.
Fact #1: I was once arrested by the CIA. (True story).
Peaked your interest? Then read on...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
2. I'm an American who's been in East London for a little bit over
a year. I just finished getting my masters and now I'm working
towards a second masters. One of my goals for the immediate future
involves trying to figure out whether to pursue a doctorate or
committing full time to my work as a consultant.
3. In the past three years I've lived on three continents.
Unfortunately my traveling within the UK has been somewhat limited.
Maybe we should change that? I'd totally be interested in a
day/weekend trip partner!
4. I enjoy keeping my body fit, typically through running and
lifting at the gym. I also enjoy pushing my physical limits. So far
I've done survival training, skydiving, camping and mountain
hiking. I'd like to get into rock climbing, meditation and more
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
5. I'm the playful teasing type. If you're bothered by a bit of
cheekiness or your feelings get hurt easily, we probably won't be a
good fit. On the other hand, if you enjoy banter and playful back
and forth then we're probably a good match.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
6. This is more weird than flattering but almost everyday I get a
lot of random compliments about my shoulders and arms from women
and men (Apparently I look like a rugby player). I'm not bragging
because it's actually a bit creepy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
7. I'm a huge film nerd. Especially sci fi or anything with a
deeper meaning. I'm also a sucker for a good documentary. You don't
need to be a film geek (though it's a plus) but if you're the type
that hates movies*, we probably won't get on.
*Also, what part of you died on the inside and crushed your soul?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Two more random facts about me:
8. Intelligence is a big turn on. I'll take a cute smart girl over
a hot dumb girl any day.
9. I prefer dating women with thoughts and opinions. I love a good
debate. I know a lot of people say the word "opinionated" like its
a bad thing, but you know...it least it shows that you give a shit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
10. When people tell me they're working their dream job I think
they're either lying or they lacked imagination as a child. When I
was growing up I wanted to be Batman!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeking a kind of truth that you can live and die by
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
A mini list (because lists are so fun!)
- You enjoy banter but hate small talk.
- You think people who don't use the Oxford comma are lawless
- You're interested in exploring London's quirky locations
and/or historical sites. I'm DYING for a museum buddy.
If this sounds like you let's grab a drink. By the end of the
night, you'll either have an awesome time or a funny story to tell,
