Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How many boring people does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Love. A short word but a big one. Easy to say, hard to live up to.
True love is pretty much the opposite of what it masquerades as on
our lips. Usually when we say "I love you", what we really mean is
"I love the way you make me feel". Do we actually mean "I love you.
Your being is on a pedestal at the end of my psychic/psychological
garden. You are the most important person to me. I place you above
myself in terms of need" or if we're just saying "I've always
fancied you, and now you are within my grasp". Are we simply
confusing our appetites -- or our need for companionship -- with a
raw, spiritual way of being?
I have what some people would describe as a bizarre and/or
tangential sense of humor. I don't know about all that, but few
things make me LMFAO more than a well-placed non sequitur. And yes,
I do love to laugh. I am an urban dweller who loves the great
outdoors. I've had a storied and interesting life. Not everyone
gets me and I am fine with that. I like and know all kinds of
interesting people from all walks of life. I'd like to get to know
you as well, to see if we can have a friendship or wherever we want
to take it to from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like to write. I like to edit. I've been doing a combination of
these activities for compensation for the past 20-or-so years. I
like to volunteer and help others. I'm considering a career change,
so who knows where I might wind up. What about you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can drive incredibly long distances without stopping. I excel at
spotting shooting stars. I'm good at resisting headaches.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea how to answer this question. You'll have to help me
out with this if we meet in person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In the fiction realm I tend to favor science fiction, speculative
fiction and cleverly shrouded technological, political and
ecological fables. Dune, Ender's Game, The Foundation Trilogy by
Isaac Asimov would be a starting point. I will also read the odd
best-seller (The Hunger Games trilogy comes to mind) now and again.
I'll read pretty much anything crossing my path that interests
My non-fiction palate is more diverse. I LOVE ecological, cultural
and military histories. I also prefer political commentary of a
specific persuasion. I also read a good bit of spiritual teaching
and self-improvement books. Once again, whatever crosses my path
Movies: That's a tall order. Some all-time favorites include Taxi
Driver, Miller's Crossing, The Matrix, Slacker, The Last Samurai,
Old School, The Decline of Western Civilization, The Graduate,
Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Say Anything, Pretty in Pink, Princess
Mononoke blah blah blah this list could go on ad infinitum.
My musical tastes are extremely diverse. As long as it is good, I
don't care what genre it is. With that being said, it is important
to note that I grew up as a punk rocker in the 80s, so many of my
tastes are informed by that era. Progressive/alternative/folk /punk
are staples of my musical diet. My (current) favorite musicians of
all time are Robyn Hitchcock, Billy Bragg, REM, Nick Cave, Neil
Young, Van Morrison etc.
Food. I love it all. :) Esp. sushi and steak. The fresher the food
the better. I was a vegan once for six months. I really enjoy that
kind of food, but after a time I had to return to meat. There is
almost no cuisine I will turn away.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, pets, a good book, time to myself and my bicycle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The size and composition of the universe.
What trend will FINALLY displace the "Zombie Apocalypse"
What will become of modern day journalism.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
For the past year or so I have been kind of a workaholic, so I'd
say 1/3 of my Friday nights I am at work, another 1/3 I am chilling
at home, and the last 1/3 I am out and about, most likely with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ooooo that's rough. If we meet in person ask me to tell you my
"crayon" story, which has become somewhat of a legend in the sleepy
seaside town where I grew up.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to meet (and hang out with) an interesting and fun guy who
does not play games in any shape or form.
You are not tethered to another human in a romantic context.
You are cool to get to know each other gradually and see where it
goes from there.
