Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One of the best things about being a Capricorn is that we don't
believe in astrology. If seeming contradictions like this amuse you
or make perfect sense, we'll get along famously. If they annoy or
anger you… well, I'm sure you're beautiful when you're angry. One
of the things you'll hear me say the most is, "these are not
mutually exclusive options." Because life is too short to be in a
I crack myself up. And I believe what I'm laughing about.
I am creative, perceptive, and unconventional. Occasionally I may
even be brilliant. I think before I speak and I listen before I
reply. Some people can't stand that silence; I live in it.
One of my favorite things to do is read aloud. If I find an article
in a magazine I'd rather read it to you than hand it to you. I love
reading books aloud before bed. Or in bed.
At this very moment, my ideal romantic relationship looks like
this: I read aloud to you, you sing to me in Portuguese and love my
cats. The rest is just details. I can't decide whether that means
I'm too picky or not picky enough. Perhaps I'll update this once I
get that figured out.
OK, not necessarily Portuguese specifically. Though it does seem to
be one of the most beautiful languages for song lyrics.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly I write code, do software and database design for an order
system for SF visitors to reserve tours and cruises. That supports
my writing habit, as well as my eating, housing, and healthcare
habits. Some nights I hunt for Messier objects, but my telescope is
really a planetary 'scope so I might have to build a new one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Crosshatching. Chess. Finding patterns in chaos. Making terrible
puns. Completely missing the point.
Occasionally I make an awesome carrot cake.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not other people, so I had to ask someone else. She said it was
my "pretty blue eyes." I find that hard to believe, though. My eyes
are pretty gray.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A fountain pen. It would be cheating for me to say ink or paper
next, wouldn't it?
Whenever I think I can't do without something, kismet takes It away
from me and I learn that I can live without it. I think I could
never do without email or my cellphone, but then when I've been
forced to do without one or the other the quality of my life has
improved. So it is very possible that anything I think I could
never do without is actually something I should do without.
Rain. Periodically I check the weather forecast hoping for rain.
Beautiful and sunny has its merits of course, but I love the rain.
I go for walks in the rain and I could sit and watch and listen to
the rain endlessly.
Stars. I have a telescope and I don't use it much because it
doesn't fit on the motorcycle very well. When I look up at the
night sky and see the Pleiades I feel that everything is right with
That's three. I'll have to get back to you about the rest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Economics. Yeah, sorry. It's been an obsession of mine
Whether running barefoot
is really a
good way to avoid common runners' injuries.
When we will smarten up and start building liquid fluoride
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Exactly as tall as I am the rest of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
OK, actually, those ARE mutually exclusive options.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like a little contradiction in your life, or better yet, you
see past apparent contradiction to a greater kind of truth. You
think riding through the mountains on an Italian motorcycle
sounds like a great
way to spend an afternoon. You think dinosaurs are cool. You enjoy
being read to.
