Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a stupid username because sometimes, well, I just don't make
very good decisions.
Other times my decsion making faculties are spot on... But in an
unobtrusive way that's not presenting itself to example right now.
Stop asking questions!
Complaining is fun and we all love it very much, but actually, I'm
pretty happy. I like things, I do things, have a pretty satisfied
mind and display only medium to high neurotic tendencies. I am
restless though, won't lie, always brewing a plan to travel or
study or something. Sometimes they even play out in the real life
I get bored quickly. I like lots of alone time, but preferably in
When no one is home I like to DANCE.
My neurotic tendencies and indecisiveness are highly endearing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have been working at a real, actual grown up job and am in the
process of detaching the insidious tentacles of financial security
and routine from their death grip on my heart.
Yeah, nah, I'm taking a year off to travel, haven't decided yet if
I'm going back to teaching the following year or being really brave
and finding some other kind of work, or going back to uni
But I'm trying not to think or plan too far ahead because when
all's said and done, it hurts my brain. Stop asking me questions!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
op-shopping, enjoying sunshine, shirking duties, belligerently
arguing my ill-informed lefty political beliefs, not finishing
crosswords, consuming large quantities of alcohol, giving my
opinion, going to parties, outstaying my welcome at parties, using
too many ellipses, feeling chilly, rugging up, being awkward,
laughing too loud, texting in complete sentences using correct
spelling and grammar, procrastinating and overthinking
This is a definitive list. I'm totally crap at everything else.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They are too blinded by the sheer force of my intellect and beauty
to 'notice'. They are reduced to a state of pure being.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
OK, so while music is tremendously important, it's not essential to
me that friends, lovers and loved ones share my music tastes. Ditto
literature and films. So rather than an exhaustive list, I'll
I like gloomy man-prose, 19th century social satire, fantasy, films
with bite, whimsy or cool effects, gloomy-man music and assorted
mournful and chipper alt-country lasses, gypsy-celtic-pirate-punk
fusion shamozzles. HBO and Joss Whedon in general.
I like to drink. I like food but am not a foodie. I lived with
foodies, it seems exhausting, I just bring the wine. I burn all the
things. I don't like to eat anything with a face. Or jellyfish. Or
slugs. Do carnivores eat slugs? Probably.
Do slugs actually have faces?
Do slugs have any endearing qualities?
These are rhetorical questions.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The same stuff that every vaguely neurotic person thinks about I
suppose... sex, death, the "point", what other people think about
Also, why I'm thinking about work in my personal time, what I want
to be doing next year, what country I'd live in I if didn't love
Australia so damn fricken much, the position of women in the world
we live in, fairness, fashion and food.
Plus a vague, pervading sense of guilt.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fridays are hand-crafted by indigenous Peruvian artisans. No two

You ... want to?
You find this amusing:
You like to learn.
Your age limit isn't someone younger than you. That really gives me
the willies because you're basically a dirty old man in
You don't want me to sit here, neurotically wondering why you
You are a seamless and elegant fusion of the dad from Roseanne,
Jean Luc Picard and Nick Cave, or at least acknowledge how awesome
that would be.
PS, all you young whippersnappers, please note the age preferences.
Serious, alright, I really mean it! Guys that are younger than my
baby brother are just... No.
