Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's always great to meet new people. Anywhere, local or other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creative arts and teaching. Trying to be aspiring, imaginative,
inspiring, productive, and help others be, while hoping it makes
for a better world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Though it can be just dandy, whether someone likes a film or song
or something else I like isn't crucial. I am curious what they
like. I think I surprise people with how disconnected I can
sometimes be from certain parts of, even moreso from certain people
in, current popular culture. Off the top of my head, maybe Stanley
Kubrick, Howard Armstrong, and pumpkin pie, but I have very few
unequivocal favorites or 'bests.' A friend and I once decided to
try and pick the 'best' pop music melody of the 20th century. After
months we finally chose one, but it was agonizing. Just liking
stuff is plenty enough for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A while back I moved from a 3-bedroom with full basement and full
attic into a temporary place that has neither. 2 U-Haul truck trips
to Goodwill, several Craigslist sales, a driveway full of items
marked 'free', and a big pile of curbside trash later, I discovered
I could do without a whole lot. Utterly liberating. I want to do it
again. I suppose a toothbrush.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
amazing to me how so many people don't want to answer this
question. oh well.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your message is well-intentioned .. Your sense of humor banks
toward dry, but can veer wild and absurd .. You're optimistic ..
You sing / play / write / design / direct / paint / sculpt /
animate / broadcast / sew or tailor / are otherwise creative, but
don't overdo the ever-popular tortured artist vibe (I navigate okc
for possible collaborators / projects) .. You teach .. You're
open-minded, non-judgmental and like meeting people who are
different from you .. You have more questions than answers .. You
don't think the way to engage someone with a different political
viewpoint is to try to condescend to, insult, or infantilize (I'm
speaking generally — not hinting that I have some strange
affiliation) .. You think the world is haywire but find much of it
hilarious, and have stories about it .. You have a lot of patience,
compassion, and empathy .. You like stuff, Lisa.
If you write I'll respond, but apologize in advance that I can
sometimes be slow. I'm not here a lot, but will make an effort
to correspond. I prefer e-mail, and won't ever IM you without prior
Also, it may appear I'm here when I'm not. I can forget to sign
off, or my phone seems to keep me logged on even when I sign off.
If you IM me and I don't respond, it's probably the same — either
presently not at my computer or forgot to sign off or my IM is
turned off or .. I am not a rude boy. If I do see your IM but can't
talk at that moment, I will respond to let you know. See? Not
Please though.. Absolutely no 101-year-olds. OKCupid understands
this, and I can't imagine you wouldn't too.
