Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have my shit together. Also, sometimes I make up for gaps in my
vocabulary with vulgarity.
To clarify: Healthy? Check. Happy? Check. Financial stability?
Check. Clean record? Check. (It would not have even occurred to me
to have that last one, but based on some of your profiles, these
kinds of things need to be stated.)
Seriously though, I'm happy with my life and am interested in
sharing the good parts. If you are too, read on and see if we might
have something to talk about.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying it. I stay in the "now", but I am cognizant of the
hazards of just letting life happen to me. On a given weekend, you
might find me on a hike, on a golf course, or maybe just some quiet
time at home.
Work wise, I do science stuff. It's fun and can be challenging,
though I appreciate that it's often not the most interesting dinner
conversation. If you're interested in such things, I'm happy to
talk about them, but don't need to talk shop.
As far as in my free time, I've historically been serially
passionate to the point of being obsessive about hobbies. As I've
"matured" I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two about
moderation. I'd love to hear about your passion. If you are
passionate about it, I'll be fascinated. There's nothing like
seeing someone light up talking about something they really love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of stuff. For no good reason, I would like to be better at
party tricks, but that's off topic...
A friend once said if I were a superhero, I'd be Empathy-Man, "With
the power to feel your pain!" Which would be a pretty unimpressive
superpower, and mighty boring superhero.
The last time I donated blood I was told, "You're a really good
bleeder." "Thanks? I guess?" I guess it's great if I want to fill a
bag of blood, but I'm not sure how comfortable I am with being
"good" at this... (BTW, if there is anyone out there who can
explain to me how a healthy body does not FREAK THE HELL OUT when
it loses that much blood, I'd love to know.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea, but here's something I noticed about a couple other
people and is probably a pretty good indication of what you might
notice about me:
So last weekend I went golfing and we got paired up with a couple.
Their names were Andreas and Sam. I noted that together they were
Sam Andreas and I could find no fault in that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a real hard time with this section. I'm not a top 10 kinda'
guy so I'm just going to generalize.
I tend to read crap. Best seller thriller or bad horror or tech
stuff. I read for fun, and I tend to reread books.
I'm not a movie guy so much, but I realized what I do like is
pretty dark. (Seven, History of Violence, Lord of War, Falling
Down, Eternal Sunshine...) I'll enjoy the mindless eye-candy or the
thought provoking stuff as well.
I'm enjoy most genres, but don't seek out country, rap, pop, or
R&B. My default is "alternative" but that can cover a lot of
I don't watch much traditional TV. Sports is probably the only
reason I'd have any broadcast TV on. I'll stream series, movies,
videos, podcasts, etc. At this point, there seems to be more good
content then I have time to consume.
I like good food, but that can be anything from the local mom and
pop place to fine dining. Day to day, I try to abide by Michael
Pollan's rule of "Eat real food, not too much, mostly vegetables."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I hate this question. So instead I'm going to list words that feel
like I should be using for whatever reason:
* I have no idea why these are mostly German...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The technological singularity, CRISPR, political systems, energy
production, perception, conservation, is that person crazy or on a
Bluetooth (sometimes I'm in downtown Berkeley), was that a backfire
or a gun (sometimes I'm in West Oakland), how do I articulate the
difference and interplay between race and culture, should I be
wearing the brown or black belt with this, how is this OKC profile
Also, stories. Story telling is in our DNA, and so I think it's a
natural way for us to engage with the world. Everyone and
everything has a story. I think the trick is maintaining the
honesty of a story while still being engaging.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You might find me winding down from the week/day, having a pint
with friends, having an early evening for the day ahead. I'm not
sure how "typical" any of my Friday nights are at this point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've tipped twice because I didn't think the cashier saw me do it
the first time.
I went to the internet to find a better way to tie my shoelaces...
and found it.

Do you know who you are and, with that knowledge, realize you don't
need to take yourself too seriously? Do you appreciate the world
around you? Are you passionate about something? Do you feel like
your life is pretty good and the right partner in crime would just
make it that much better? Well me too. Say hello and let's go
