Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a pretty unique bird. I know who I am and don't really care
what other people think. I get very excited about odd things. For
instance, this past summer I made a random stop at a historical
site after seeing the sign by the side of the road. Next thing I
knew, I was in a 19th century road house beside an inclined plane
railroad on a canal network and remarking how much the design of
the floor plan resembled an 18th century colonial manor house. I
bought a magnet in the gift shop (I buy magnets and mugs of places
I enjoy history (American, military (I know more about the
Falklands War than possibly any other American under 45), and
industrial), football (my beloved Nittany Lions and Steelers),
hockey (Pens), and going outside if its not too hot out. I'm a
fall-spring person. Cold weather and I get along very well. One
year veteran of the Erie Snowbelt. I can drive in snow.
I'm intensely curious about everything around me. I also enjoy
researching things. Falling down the Wikipedia hole is a common
event. The very concept of emojis concerns me. Makes me feel like
I'm reading Highlights magazine, but not in a good way like when
I'm reading a Goofus and Gallant.
All that aside, I can actually be a pretty serious person and get
I'd like to find a lady that will argue with me about the SEC being
overrated, sciencey enough to know what "relativistic kill vehicle"
means, wouldn't complain about the opera, and doesn't mind loafing
around the house but more outgoing than I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Analyst/consultant/graphic designer in the outer space business. My
name was listed in the program for an awards ceremony that also
included Stephen Colbert, but he didn't attend the even (boo).
Continuously getting ideas for novels, writing five pages, then
never doing anything else.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
learning just enough about a particular topic, so that I can seem
like I know what I'm talking about. A friend of mine once said she
didn't know if I actually knew all this trivia or if I was just
really good at sounding authoritative.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like the ones about the things that actually happened,
especially if George Washington, World War II, or a submarine turns
up. Too bad George Washington never got to sink a U-boat. I've been
big on World War I lately, as its the 100th anniversary and a lot
of the things I see in the paper are triggering a "wait this seems
Movies: Rather shamelessly, I enjoy the movies where a lot of stuff
explodes and you don't have to think too much. Especially because I
can make fun of the plot holes and illogical character decisions.
Affleck is going to be a terrible Batman.
Shows: I liked Fiddler. Or wait did they mean TV!? Too late, typed
Fiddler. 30 Rock, Mad Men, Archer, Sherlock, Vikings, Venture Bros,
Air Disasters, Seinfeld, Bob Burger ("His name is Bob Burger." Ha
Teddy rules.), that sort of business. It caused me physical
discomfort to start a sentence with "30" instead of "Thirty."
Music: A cavalcade of guilty pleasures.
Food: Why is cereal not marketed to adults?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) clothes, because going outside naked usually ends up with
uncomfortable encounters with law enforcement
2) a skeletal and muscular system designed to operate in 1 G
conditions, so that I can freely move about but not also worry
about accidentally jumping at escape velocity
3) the Earth's magnetosphere, to prevent solar flares from
irradiating me and everything I've ever loved
4) everything I've ever loved, which includes chicken fingers, cats
that feel like they're made out of velvet, candles that smell like
vanilla frosting, and a good hot shower after a crappy day
5) the ability to comprehend the English language and its
overwhelmingly massive vocabulary
6) that glorious week of the year when the sun sets at, like, 9
Hey, it said think outside the box, so Mission Accomplished.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
pondering the viability of a business that is both a gym and a
laundromat. People just sit there waiting for the laundry. Why not
give them, like, a treadmill or something?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ancient Aliens is on that night, so I'm probably yelling angry
things at the TV.
Pyramids are just big, well engineered stone piles. They don't
require exotic equipment or fantastic physics. You give a kid some
letter blocks and you'll have a pyramidal structure later that day.
I'm angry just thinking about it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm goofy as hell. However, I know how to toggle it on and off. I'm
not your supervisor, so its your call in the end anyhow.
