Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Feminist, autodidact, INFJ. Let's go.
First things first: I am not cool. I'm basically a walking awkward
bomb, primed to explode at any second. My life has played out like
a series of vignettes comprised of stock footage and
self-consciously hip narration, with a confusing wraparound plot
compounded by non-linear editing and unforeseeable twists. I
surrendered my Typical Male card long ago, opting instead for a
lifetime supply of stand-up comedy fodder. I have zero interest in
cars and even less interest in sports, but will spend hours poring
through old postcards and other assorted ephemera with you until
they kick us out of the antique shop. I also possess the most
morbid sense of humor ever, so if you're of too delicate a
temperament, we might not be a good match. But it's worth a
p.s. Re: feminism: I realize that a lot of gross guys have co-opted
the term as a way to ingratiate themselves among the socially
conscious while never once aligning with the cause. I'm also well
aware that men are in no way needed to validate the movement.
Should this be a concern, let's settle on intersectional ally.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm not where I thought I'd be ten years ago, but I'm getting
there. En route to self-actualization, I dabble in cooking and
writing music. Other pursuits include DJing (the "Let's spin a
bunch of old vinyl" kind, not the "I'm about to drop the bass"
kind), hosting offbeat movie nights, doing my best Morrissey
impression, and finding other amusing ways to humiliate myself. I
just kinda take it as it comes; if all else fails, I'll steal to
the wilds and become a cryptozoologist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving complex differential equations. Not really.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm often mistaken for being of another ethnicity. (e.g., Jewish,
Italian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've been getting back into fiction lately after years of
estrangement, and am finding all sorts of beautiful avenues to
explore. When it comes to food, I do my best to eat healthy, and
I'll try anything at least once. I am an omnivore, but I also love
animals. My record collection takes up an inordinate amount of
space in my apartment, and my taste in film is wide-ranging: I
would feel just as much at home soaking up Jim Jarmusch and Todd
Solondz at the most abstruse art house imaginable as I would
rocking out to John Waters and Alex Cox at the grimiest underground
p.s. I feel totally out of place in bars and clubs, but I'm a
lifelong devotee of café and diner culture.
And as crucial as shared interests are in forging a lasting bond,
it has been proven to me time and again that personal tastes are a
misleading gauge of character. Nevertheless:

shame. Also, if you kinda sorta fit the following criteria:
I want someone who is passionate, considerate, witty, independent,
and at least somewhat informed about pop culture and politics.

confidant and a partner in crime.
