Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a long profile, so here's the study guide:
-I'm convinced the best way to get to know me is through the books,
music and movies section (It's also the part I want to know most
about you, so the more you write there, the better). I hope you'll
contact me if we've got similar tastes. I'm confused as to what
couples are even supposed to do if they can't geek out over the
same stuff together.
-I prefer to be upfront about things when dealing with people.
Subterfuge and social situations rarely mix.
-I'm a liberal, an atheist, and a feminist and these are all very
important to me, but I can accept anybody that can accept me.
-Sports are not my thing and never will be. I sit down to watch
them only for championships.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going through grad school.
Working a new job at a non-profit in the city
...and looking forward to the day I'll get to move there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Logic and puzzles
Reaching things on the top shelf
Picking things apart and reflecting on them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone says their height, but I actually am pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
-I read books. I don't finish them in a week usually, but I
definitely read them at my own pace. I enjoy fiction,
science-fiction, and sometimes just science. And fantasy.
-Currently reading Game of Thrones. I intentionally have not seen
any of the tv series yet because I wanted to give my imagination a
chance to visualize the characters before the tv actors spoiled it.
Alas though, there's no hiding from Peter Dinklage.
-I'm more into movies than most. If a movie has a reputation for
being good, I'm interested in seeing it. I love almost genres of
film: New, old, animated, foreign. All of it.
-There's certainly more to put down, but here's a good
representation of my taste in movies:
-My tastes are typically nerd stuff: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly,
Avatar, etc. Pretty much everything you'd expect except Big Bang
Theory and My Little Pony.
-Currently working through every incarnation of Star Trek on
Netflix (currently: Voyager)
- My music tastes are weird and unimportant, and I'm typically
happy to relinquish control of the car stereo.
- Not country or rap
- Lately my go-to music is Endless Fantasy by Anamanaguchi or
Discovery by Daft Punk
- Ask me if you care to know more
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
An occasional moment alone
My intelligence (for whatever it's worth)
The hope that humanity will eventually figure out how to live on
this planet without slowly killing ourselves in one way or
Nitrogen for keeping the atmosphere from igniting
New stories to experience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Meaning, and how to add it to my life.
-Where did bread first come from? Could it be the most meaningful
scientific achievement in human history?
-Words and where they came from and how they might be related to
other words. For example, is "fantastic" derived in some way from
"fantasy"? If so, that means I've been using it wrong all this
time! And what about "terrific" and "terrible"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
-Hanging out with friends, playing board games.
-Out to the movie theater when there's something worth
-Inside spending a comfortable night at home watching a favorite
movie/reading a favorite book/playing video games.
-Any/All of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Why is this section even here?
I have a tumblr. I'm not very active in posting on it, but I like
reading other people's posts far too much that I probably couldn't
quit if I wanted to.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It's too much to hope for to think that you actually read
everything I wrote. Still, I hope you'll message me if you're
Especially if you think we could love the same obscure things
Or if you want to share the obscure things you like with me, and
you'll let me return the favor.
Or if the idea of staying in bed late on a weekend to watch
cartoons together appeals to you.
Also, it's easier for me to respond when messages say more than
just hello. I'm better at thinking of something to say when you
give me something to think about.
