Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently moved from upstate NY to Boston for work. I'm still
getting to know the city and enjoying all that this area has to
offer. I have a great group of friends living close by that mean a
lot to me. I'd like to think that I'm thoughtful, funny,
interesting, and easy to talk to (But I guess who doesn't want to
think that, right?).
I'm really enjoying the city so far, and I like to get out and try
new things as much as possible. It'd be great to meet somebody to
share all of these new experiences with. I joined OkCupid to meet
more people in hopes of finding someone who I might share a deeper
These self descriptions are tough to write, and mine always sounds
pretty cheesy when i read it back to myself. I promise you that in
real life I don't take myself too seriously.

I love going to see live music when I get the opportunity. I like
pretty much all kinds of music, especially rock. I play guitar and
used to be in a band before I moved to Boston. I haven't been
practicing as much lately...it's not really as much fun when you've
got no one else to play with.
As for food, I like everything, cheap or fancy

How difficult it is to fill out my OKCupid profile
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out on the town with my coworkers or friends. I work pretty hard
during the week but I like to relax on weekends and enjoy myself.
