To summarize the previous summaries:
In the 1st version, I took the “my friends would describe me as… “ approach, using words such witty, intelligent, ironic, creative, compassionate… it’s too embarrassing to recall what other words I may have used. Fortunately a writer friend who is also on OKCupid discovered the profile and more or less tore it apart. She told me that “everybody describes themselves as witty and creative intelligent. What is so unique about you? You need to tell them how awesome you are.” To which I drew a blank.
In the 2nd version, I went in another direction. I wrote that there was no self to summarize. My OKCupid friend told me that this sounded way way too self-deprecating. I said that this was sort of an in-joke between myself and everyone else out there familiar with deconstructive theory and Tibetan Buddhism. My friend said it was not a very funny joke.
My 3rd version was an attempt at reconciling the previous versions. I wrote about being an introvert who thrives upon being the center of attention; ... a liberal who hates politics because it's too political; a devout agnostic; a person who is either too shy or too meanderingly chatty. I wrote that in certain moments when I think I am taking myself far too seriously, my friends are often highly amused.
I then let my friend write a statement about my artwork (music, writing, performance/theater) as full of melancholy, humor and a sad, dark hope. I decided to leave that part in.
In my 4th version, I realized that all of the emphasis on my paradoxical Gemini nature in the 3rd version was just as hollow as the 1st version. So I started writing what probably would have been my masterpiece of a profile, my grand self-summary, but in a moment of distraction, I accidentally navigated off the site which deleted everything.
So this is the 5th version.
By the way, I think this Staff Robot thing is pretty fucked up.
