Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

A friend of mine says I accentuate my flaws too much without
showcasing the positives about me. This is what she says:
But you're not showing them who you are, you're just listing
perceived flaws about yourself, which most of them are not really
about you. You are not your job. You are not your apartment. You
are not your messy truck. You are not some staunch hardcore atheist
who won't have discourse about Jesus or Buddha or Gandhi or Allah
or Muhammed or Ganesh or Whothefuckever. You are actually NOT
ambivalent or without ambition or drive, it's just that right now
all your ambition is focused on being the best damn Dad in the
world for Brad. But you are not just these things. You're also a
really sweet guy who, if I asked him to right now, would jump in
his truck and drive three hours without a pause to consider having
to go to work tomorrow if I told him I needed him. You're the guy
who quotes Stephen King and Ray Bradbury and Kurt Vonnegut and John
Steinbeck and... remind me another time soon that your choices of
favorite authors is very male-centric. Anyway... you're the guy who
is passionate about making his woman feel adored and beautiful and
cherished and safe. You're the guy who is so damn funny I have
practically choked laughing at his jokes and stories. You're the
guy who may not have the greatest job in the world but damn if he
won't drag himself to it day in and day out to keep the fridge full
for a growing boy with a very healthy appetite.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to be a good dad, working, reading
, writing, and trying to master
the art of brevity.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at being me no matter what the world might bring or think,
being Dad, helping others with their problems while ignoring my
own, and I'm quite good at the physical aspects of a relationship.
The first things people usually notice about me

Food: pizza, pasta
BBQ, Vietnamese when I can get it, anything I've never tried.
I limited myself to five in all these categories because otherwise
the list would never end.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time to think
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Too many things too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Mostly spending time with my son hiking or browsing used books or
seeking out the nearest White Castle

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you fall somewhere between wanting to be friends with benefits
and wanting to move in together tomorrow. If you have the patience
to deal with dating a single father. If I've messaged you. Even if
it's to respond with not interested, it's only polite. :-)
