Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New Flash: It is now Autumn which I consider the most romantic
season. The idea of ending a day with someone I like in as cozy a
fashion as we can manage is one of the simple pleasures of life I
aspire to. It might be my only real ambition.
I didn't realize it until recently, but I have become a T-shirt
Like, my old doorman explicitly pointed this out. I am slightly
uneased by this.
Most of my new friends are from the last place I worked and they
are all much younger than me. I love them - they're the bee's knees
- but I wouldn't mind meeting some folks my age or older.
I could be described as "hirsute". I am actually convinced it keeps
me thin since it must take up so many calories.
I would rather talk about you than me.
Every time I use the phrase "nasolabial fold" someone gets
There was a point in my life where I liked small things. For
example, small drinking glasses. Even, and I do experience some
shame for this, tiny hats. Totally unrelated, of course, I try not
to judge people on their preferences.
I learned recently that the 2010 census brought the average height
for men down from 5'10" to 5'9" which means I gained an inch...
cause it's all relative.
I love adventure. I love big adventure! But, if left alone, the
concept atrophies somehow; not wearing socks suddenly
I have, on more than one occasion, been referred to as "not like
anyone else". I remain suspicious of the fact that this does not
denote "in a good way". But I figure it's probably at least under
50% which I consider solid.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wasting it in as amusing a manner as I can manage. Also, I
sometimes make mediocre tongue twisters. Apparently.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Inquiry, goofing off, thinking, communicating the thinking, rote
tasks, tying knots, finding the Darkness in the Heart of Man, not
Enjoying the company of Cats. My friends have threatened me with a
subscription to Cat Fancier. I am in touch with this part of myself
and anyone who is not OK with that can suck it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm. I've no idea. Probably my decision making abilities.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ian M. Banks' Culture series is by far my favorite science fiction
China Meiville produces some wonderful weird fiction.
The Gone Away World
is pretty fantastic.
As for food I love the familiar yet infinitely variable meals, such
I am drawn to post-apocalyptic fiction; no matter how bad it's
going to be I am willing to read/watch it. I suspect most people
consider this to be evidence of my Pessimistic nature. I, however,
claim that recognition of the coming apocalypse is merely Paying
Attention while my fascination with related fiction is evidence of
my innate Optimism in that I would love to believe we pull through
it. So there.
I watch alot of TED talks. Since full meals like Frontline are rare
I must have my educational snacks. Update: This is no longer true.
Perhaps I am no longer educated.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world is insane and how best to make a joke about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Socializing in its many and varied forms.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Madness is a matter of perspective.
Also, when the time comes you should make the first move. I will
make the second and probably the third.
So... about the casual sex, I feel it carries a certain inherent
creepiness, I get it. But (a) they don't have FWB which is far
preferable and (b) fuck it, why not?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Frankly, just about any reason should suffice. I love talking...
and talking and talking.
However, if you are part of a Rolling Crew, Benign Gang, or Circle
of Friends that frequently gather and make merry and could use a
witty new member then you have extra special reason. At my age all
my friends are pair-bonded and not prone to the frequency of social
mixing that satisfies me.
