Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a person who will stare at an empty self-summary box for an
hour, trying to figure out how to phrase things just right, or what
order to list information about myself, or whether I should include
things like age and height, even though they're listed clearly in
other spots on this page, just because that's the kind of thing I
used to put in "Describe Yourself" homework assignments when I was
8. I also considered just listing random facts about myself, but
then realized I'd probably run out of good ones pretty quick. Also,
most of the stuff I'd put there (like say, that I'm a nerd) is
pretty easy to figure out from just a cursory glance at any of the
other boxes below this one. And another also, I'm way too much of a
rambler to make good use of bulleted lists.
Of course, after that hour, I realize that the most telling thing
about me would be to just type all of this stuff going through my
head when I'm looking at an empty self-summary box.
Because this is me. Sitting alone in the dark, thinking. Not
thinking brooding, "alone in the dark" type stuff, but more "is
making a smoothie worth cleaning the blender later" stuff.
Unfortunately, smoothies are awesome. I really hate cleaning the
Okay, one more thing, just in case someone reading this wants a
deeper look into my head (so if you don't, then, spoiler alert? I
guess?). So, while I don't consider myself to be a religious
person, I do have what I consider to be a person's job as a human
being. Two things, actually. To treat other people with dignity,
respect, and kindness, regardless of conflict, and if you have
kids, to raise them to be better at that than yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm staying busy hanging with my nephew, and trying to keep my eyes
on the prize.
Well, none of that's true, actually. I just have that song in my
head. I don't even have a nephew... What is true is that I work way
too many hours a week at a restaurant.
I’m really good at

don't, then I really have no idea...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not even going to try to list books here; seriously, if it has
words, and it's in front of me, I'll read it. On the subject of
movies, I've never fully understood the appeal of the Star Wars
films, and I consider that a failing of my inner nerd. As for
music, everyone I work with hates my choices. For more information,
ask. And food, I love to try new things, and am always on the hunt
for new recipes to try when I have time to cook. (wow, I just

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're up for late-night chatting, since I pretty much only use
this thing to find people to talk to when I'm up until all sortsa
ungodly hours. I suppose if you're actually local and want to hang
out sometime, that'd work, too.
So I recently spent a day just sitting around, drinking wine and
watching eighties kids' movies (in my defense, that particular day,
I was pretty sick, but it's not really much of a defense, because
the "sick day" thing was just a convenient excuse), and it was
suggested that I invite messages from someone who thinks they'd
enjoy doing that, as well.
Also, I guess message me if you don't mind long, convoluted
sentences with the possibilty of parenthetical statements, because
apparenly that's the only way I know how to communicate.
