Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a personal trainer
and am working
toward becoming an amateur bodybuilder
. I like to read
, work out
at the gym
and occassionally do other stuff.
2011/2012 brought on some serious changes in my lifestyle and
outlook, because I'm Becoming an Adult (I assume...I lost the
maturity handbook a few years ago and haven't found a replacement
yet). I finally tackled my alcoholism and realised that all the
time I used to spend drunk could be spent in the gym instead, so
that's where I'm at now.
I'm an oddball who has found a long-term relationship. He's an
awesome, sweet guy who is weird, which is great for me. We met in
June, 2008, right here on OKCupid. I'm not looking for romance here
anymore, but I would like to find a "bromance" with someone who
likes to work out and maybe just chill once in a while.
I'm fairly shy and quiet when you first meet me. I used to solve
this problem with beer, but realized that that caused a bunch of
other problems that weren't so easy to solve, so I've been
2011. I don't think it's made me boring.
I play a lot of rugby
with my club Muddy York. I'll gladly
talk about rugby, weightlifting, and/or zombie apocalypses with
anyone for hours.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've decided that stability is over-rated, and so resigned from my
stable admin job and am now canfitpro certified as a personal
trainer. If I could spend my whole day in the gym, I think I would,
and these days I day dream about owning my own little
hole-in-the-wall gym where I never have to wait for a squat
Other than lifting weights, the bulk of my time is being spent
writing fiction and reading books. Unless I'm in front of the
computer reading websites about feminism and social justice.
I also have a growing collection of zombie apocalypse fiction that
will one day prove to be my undoing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, reading, telling bad jokes and puns, a LOT. I also have a
talent for confusing people who care about me with my moodiness and
tendency to be extremely antisocial to the point of disappearing
from the world altogether for extreme lengths of time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no clue whatsoever what people notice about me. I have a
beard, so there's that. I used to have long hair with the beard,
and people said I looked like Jesus, but that's because anyone with
long hair and a beard looks like Jesus (even white people like me,
even though Jesus probably wasn't white).
I hope that the first thing they notice isn't the booger that's
hanging from my nose.
...Okay, I just checked, and there isn't a booger, so yeah,
probably the beard.

though, which will be my other undoing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm sure some of those elements on the periodic table are
important. But do I really need Argon?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing, stories, bodybuilding, the universe, you know, the
I'm puzzled about the ways that bias and prejudice keep us from
connecting with each other as people. I'm an "includer" and feel
like everyone should be able to participate in anything, even if
that's not practically possible. I'm the guy who invites everyone
to everything and then is confused when people don't play nice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to bed by 9pm because I'm...an early riser, suddenly? I'm
still confused by this development.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no secrets. Know me for long enough and you'll know every
single embarrassing story about me. It's kind of sad, really. My
epitaph will read "He told us. Everything."
