Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a guy who keeps trying to figure life, and myself out. I
grew up on a farm, live in the city, and still have a farmhouse
where I go to get away now and then, walk barefoot, ride 4
wheelers, and feel some fresh air. I'm rather liberal, a bit geeky
(piano bars do happen), a lot contemplative, and generally a decent
listener. I like to go for long walks. I live my life looking
forward to beautiful moments with my friends, such as building a
fire on the beach, getting a little buzzed together at happy hour,
and hearing all the stories they have to tell. I think I'm a good
listener, and occasionally a good talker.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to navigate it as best I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping good posture, avoiding people who are too hung up on social
status, staying away from social media (besides dating sites),
complaining about conservatives, getting stuff done, fixing up a
house (plumbing, electrical, framing) and making sunflower seeds
grow in random places.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My lack of fashion sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Julie Driscoll, Lulu, Steve Miller Band,
Supertramp, The Beatles,Earth, Wind and Fire, etc.
I like books that touch on philosophy, human evolution, psychology,
and the evils of capitalism.
I like movies that make me think about our existence.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends who make me feel alive and accepted when I am around them,
food that makes me excited to eat it, profound experiences that
yank me into the present moment, candle light to tell stories by,
music that moves me, and gravity to keep me from being flung into
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If time doesn't really exist, then is free will an illusion? When
people smoke DMT, is what they see just a result of weird brain
firing, or are they really experiencing another realm of
consciousness? Why is my morning self so at odds with my evening
self? How can I unravel my brain enough to conquer anxiety? Why do
we as a society praise anyone who has a job, even if what they
produce is deleterious to humanity? Is there a better way to live?
Can we overthrow capitalism and replace it with an entirely new
system based on community rather than winner take all? Will Apple
TV ever get better screen savers? Lyrics to Leonard Cohen songs.
How bipedalism eventually led humans to become such really strange
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can't always predict my energy level on a Friday night.
Sometimes, I'll go to happy hour and see where the night goes
afterward. I'm less likely to go out to the bars later because I
get annoyed with the weekend crowds, but there are times when I'm
up for it. Going to a Japanese noodle bar for a big bowl of ramen
is a good start to the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to beat a homemade drum and chant sometimes.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to stay up late at night around a candle with bottles of
wine, reading scary stories to each other, talking about life,
dissecting song lyrics and occasionally walking barefoot through
streams in the woods. Enjoying sitting on a roof staring at the
stars is also a plus.
