Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved down to DC for work about a year ago now from Philly
(world's greatest city).
I am an avid hockey fan (Flyers) and openly wish that I knew how to
ice skate because secretly think that if I did I could be pretty
good at hockey but I guess I will never know. My fictional hero is
Ren McCormack and my Kevin Bacon number is 1 - his mom was my
pre-school teacher. So now your Kevin Bacon number is 2,
I love sports especially things with nations competing - e.g.,
Olympics - and can spend hours and hours watching some obscure
sport if I know that the people really care about winning and the
announcers do a good job of explaining what is going on.
I like reading, mostly fiction, and refuse to read any book that I
am not totally into within the first 100 pages. I like almost all
food and enjoy trying new restaurants but cannot cook at all.
Family is very important to me and I have a very large and
complicated family involving many step-siblings etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying not to work too much
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the humor in everyday situations.
Being nice to my friends.
Beer Pong (Retired, mostly).
Tennis racket tricks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall and I have a deep voice.
I have been told twice in the past couple months that I remind
people of Jonah from Veep. And I could apparently pass as one of
the Property Brothers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Most anything but I am a huge Boss fan. I have also recently
gotten pretty into Brit Pop, The Verve, the La's etc.
Ten Albums that I think are really great and can be easily listened
to straight through in no particular order: Graceland, Born to Run,
Get Rich or Die Tryin, Nevermind, Urban Hymns, Illmatic, The La's,
Rumors, the Bends, pretty much any Beatles album but especially
Help and Rubber Soul.
Movies: Action movies and comedies mostly. Dumb and Dumber, Ace 2,
anything Monty Python.
Books: pretty eclectic in my book taste. I like some historical
stuff (was a history major in college).
Fiction-wise I like Neil Gaiman, PG Wodehouse, David Foster
Wallace, Cormac McCarthy, Graham Greene.
Food: I like basically anything but I think I am a texture-oriented
eater. I don't tend to like things that are slimy (tofu, cooked
mushrooms, some seafood) and I don't like "fishy" taste. I eat fish
though. Complicated right? My favorite food is probably sandwiches
and if I had to choose I would rather be allowed to order ONLY
appetizers for the rest of my life than ONLY entrees.
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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something involving friends and alcohol. Probably at a bar.
