Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Prelude: I am not, and have never been nor pretended to be,
Concealed within a body that far outpaced its readiness for
maturity's rigors is the mind of the boy I once was: prone to sit
or stand, stupefied and aloof, alone in a crowded room, staring
wide-eyed at the social morass I have never fathomed and which has
always seemed too perilous to wade in.
The Hartman Profile's “yellow personality” description somewhat
suits me (inclined to fun), although I test rather evenly between
all of the personality colors as well as between the right and left
brain hemispheres (acknowledging that the right-left dichotomy has
been largely debunked). One might regard me as a creative, sensual,
and artistic; an idea man; while another would find me logical,
driven by lofty and uncharted objectives, and constantly pondering
the meaning of life and things. I am usually playful, mischievous,
and secretly preoccupied with adventure. Alas, I suppose some of
those preoccupations will have to quaff another draught of patience
ere their fulfillment.
I am modest and malleable, fiercely open-minded, and believe my
self-evaluation to be neither too high nor too low.
I remain, as yet, detached from intimate associations, though I am
abundantly courteous with everyone and make it a practice to deal
the same way I want to be dealt with. Being among the weakest of
mortals, I aspire to infinite patience and a strong character.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently devote the vast majority of my time, day and night, to
business-related endeavors. However, I regularly shut off the phone
and escape to
the gym (now benching 365 to 400)
reading and researching
any of various restaurants in town - preferably Vietnamese,
Cambodian, Burmese, Thai, Laotian, Chinese, Indian, Pakistani,
Afghani . . .

How I wish I could find some ancient treasure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The guitar, singing, pumping iron, swimming, all forms of fine art,
research, analysis, thinking and meditating, skirting the vortex of
insanity, and enduring all manner of adversity.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
. . . you are patient, rarely or never annoyed, just, tactful,
quick witted, adventurous, open-minded, intensely curious, have a
raucous-yet-dry sense of humor, and are willing to sacrifice
everything you think, do, have, and are, for the truth.
Production note regarding the profile photos: Unlike most normal
humans, my internal programming does not permit me to deign ask
someone else for a personal photo op. So I am sorry, but "selfie"
photos are probably all I will ever have, and even those are
intensely painful to the psyche to capture. Moreover, I can lift
far more weight than I can smile for the camera - and I fear the
mounting social pressure to undergo the latter will pose the risk
of serious injury to me - so I beg your forbearance. (Don't worry.
My teeth and oral hygiene can be certified "excellent.")
