Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I feel about adulthood the way a dog feels when he's getting to
ride in the car, but then he finds out that he's going to the
I'm a public servant with half of a master's degree who probably
still harbors secret fantasies of becoming a stand up comedian.
I'll probably wind up running for office instead. The two endeavors
are actually pretty similar, when you think about it.
Short-term I'm looking for someone to have fun with. It seems like
whatever you do is more fun if you have someone to do it with, and
there's a lot going on in this town. Long-term, I want to start a
family. I completely understand people who don't want kids, but I'm
afraid that's a bit of a deal breaker for me.
I'm really interested if you have a unique skill or hobby or
subject that you can teach me about. And if you're into fitness at
all, that's great. I've let my fitness slip since I got out of the
Navy and started grad school and it would be awesome to have
someone to run or cycle or do yoga or other sporty stuff with and
get back in shape. (A few years ago I spent quite a bit on a
commuter bicycle that now functions as a fairly serviceable coat
rack. I'd love to dust it off again!) I'm currently working on
losing weight, and I'm averaging a pound or two a week.
I can solve a Rubik's Cube in under three minutes. I'm not sure if
that's impressive or not.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an analyst for the state government where my primary
responsibility is overseeing grant programs. My primary programs
serve the non-profit, low-income, and HIV-positive
I'm now working on an evening MBA program with concentrations in
Finance and Marketing. I probably want to stay in the public or
non-profit sector. These industries don't pay as much as the
private for-profit sector does, but it's important to me that what
I do has a tangible impact, and I think that people with business
backgrounds are sorely needed in these areas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at public speaking. I know that a lot of people
have a huge fear of public speaking, but I either never did or I've
gotten over it.
I also really like to cook, and try new things in the kitchen. I
find that cooking is even more fun when you have someone to share
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told that I have a very loud voice, and a very outgoing manner.
Apparently I sometimes give off a hostile attitude, and that I can
have a "scowly" face. I get it from my dad. I'm usually just lost
in my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite novel is "The Great Gatsby." I'm a big fan of Mark
Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter S. Thompson, "Starship Troopers,"
"Dune," and "Catch-22," and "The Richest Man in Babylon." I'm also
a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels. I've read them all a few
times. Honestly, I've got a stack of books that's been growing
since I started grad school that I want to read and haven't. You
should see my Amazon Wish List.
My favorite movie is probably "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." But I
also love "The Last of the Mohicans," "The Thing," "The Great
Dictator," the Marx Brothers films, and "Thank You For Smoking," to
name a few.
As for television, I like a number of sitcoms, but I usually prefer
to watch them several episodes at a time on a slow weekend. I also
enjoy a lot of UK shows like "Sherlock," "QI," and "8 Out of 10
Cats;" Also, I've really gotten into "Breaking Bad," "Trailer Park
Boys," "The League," and "Conan."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends and family, of course.
2. My iPhone. I've become an addict!
3. Rum. Just, rum.
5. Warm socks out of the dryer.
6. Internet access. I know this one sounds dumb, but I always
forget just how much I do online until the service is out.
I start running out of ideas then. I guess I could do without a lot
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I want to start a television show about a Home Economics
teacher who discovers she has cancer, and holds a bake sale to
raise the money for her treatment. I'll call it, "Baking
I'm so, so, sorry for that joke.
I like the idea of lots of things that I'm sure would be less fun
in real life than they are in my imagination. I like to think about
becoming a college instructor, or opening a bar, or just traveling
the world like a bum. Things like that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either going home exhausted or going out with co-workers or friends
downtown. Although I went out with coworkers a couple weeks ago and
we all got way too drunk, and things got way too real. The next
Monday at the office everything was awkward, like we had
accidentally killed a guy and made a secret pact to never talk
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One time, in college, I got super high before a theatre class and
gave a presentation in which I repeatedly referred to "Hamlet" as
the "Fresh Prince of Denmark."
I own a onesie. It's super warm and comfortable, like sweatpants
for your whole body.

better. And while I'm at it, fuck the sixth doctor. That guy was a
