Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This person whose profile you're reading likes the things everyone
else likes. He likes travel, fitness, reading, art. Here's where he
gets weird. He wasn't born in the U.S., likes diversity of culture,
tries to improve society, and writes articles about systemic biases
and fictional short stories. He's knows no one is really a good
person; their actions, not words, define who they are.
Is this person who you're looking for? Who knows? What you're
looking for might be deeper than that — deeper than superficial
things, past common interests, past wondering whether his writing
style is a façade or some sort of post-ironic statement.
Online dating makes it easy to get attached to just the shallow
things— which are important — but deep things are, too, and deep
things elevate the shallow things. The intertwining of the two, and
the getting to know someone, is where love is. And you can
only really discover “chemistry” by talking to the person. A person
is defined by how they talk to people, not what they say about
There can be no intimacy if you are not willing to be vulnerable,
even in online conversation.

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.
Nature and being in it. Outer space and being in it. Systemic bias
and how we're all part of it.
