Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a relatively ordinary guy: kind, honest, athletic, and trying
not to feel too self-conscious filling this out. I'm pretty easy
going and reliable, my biggest vice is a propensity for
ridiculously subtle and obscure jokes. Because if the other person
doesn't need a brilliant flash of insight to catch the Joseph

I do a lot of running. I run five days a week and have done a bunch

cool job that gives me both money and interesting work. I still
spend a chunk of my free time working on various start-up ideas
though I'm not going to quit my job unless it's really
I'd like to find someone who's a bit adventurous but also
intelligent (ie University educated) and can carry a good
conversation. If you have any questions or just want to chat feel
free to message.

If I were to be honest it might be my legs. I'm not remotely vain,
it's just something a lot of people of both genders have found a
