Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to Columbus for grad school last year. Fun life fact: it is
really, really hard to meet people to date and meet new friends
while you're in grad school. That is why I am here.
I'm sure a million profiles say this but I don't really think I'm
easy to summarize. At least, not if I'm being honest with you. I
will say I take some digging to get to know. If you want to
pigeonhole me to decide whether it's worth your while to keep
reading, you can probably peg me as the liberal artsy type. I
identify as queer moreso than bisexual.
I'm a transgender guy. Some people are into that, some aren't. If
you aren't, just let me know - no hard feelings.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in grad school working on a dual master's in social work and
public health. Grad school with a part time job is busy. Yeah. I
feel like those things are my life at this point. But I do my best
to make time for the people in my life and for writing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
School. So good that a lot of times I forget what day it is.
I'm a good writer, I cook well, and I listen and empathize well.
I'm passionate about the things I like.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sometimes make a game out of making new people guess how old I am
before I tell them. Usually they're off the mark by about ten
years, on the low end. I think it's the chubby cheeks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like lots of books, and unfortunately I also own a ton and have
to move them every time I switch apartments. I read a lot of
nonfiction and literature too, and had a Russian lit kick for a
while. I read a lot of fantasy as a kid and young adult and it's
still very near and dear to my heart as a genre, but I don't find
quality fantasy very often. If you are a reader and would like to
talk about books (especially if you can recommend good ones to
me!), please take me out for coffee and we will geek out
Generally as far as movies and TV go, I like New Things. I like
watching these things with people and don't do it much on my own. I
like Game of Thrones and Parks and Rec though.
I like indie rock and electronica. I promise I'm not a dick about
An ex once said of me that my favorite food varies depending on
what I happen to be eating, which is true. But in general I like it
to be spicy. I'm also pretty into craft beer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My tablet, hot sauce, things that allow me to be perceived as my
actual gender, my cat (he's my buddy), books, and soap, because not
having showers sounds horrific.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of my time preoccupied with social justice issues and
deconstructing gender. I can talk your ears off about either of
these things, and if you get me going, I probably will. I also tend
to do a lot of self-reflection.
I think all of that makes me sound a bit deeper than I actually am,
so rest assured I also spend a lot of time preoccupied with sex and
whatever nerdy thing I happened to read that day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually out with a friend at a bar, unless I happen to be
utterly exhausted from the week. Then I'm usually at home playing
Guild Wars or League of Legends and/or watching my cat fling
himself around the house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I refuse to stick my hand down the disposal when stuff gets stuck
down there. I will get tongs. Too many horror movies.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you like any of the things I have described above and want to
get to know someone else who does. If you are cute, intelligent,
talkative and assertive (read: a nerdy-in-a-cool-way feminist or
social activist) I will consider these things a bonus.
