Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been spending way too many years of my life trying to tell
myself that I should like what I'm doing rather than telling myself
to do what I like. That's changing.
I like people. A lot. If you want to hang out I'll be super happy!
If you introduce me to something cool I haven't tried, I'll be even
I have a short attention span. Thus, this is it for now. I might
write some more another time…
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm studying human geography for reasons that often
escape me. When I'm not doing that I can most often be seen
while staring at my computer/a book/the air.
I like to draw. Do too little of it, though. Trying to do it more
I have a radio show with a friend where we play more or less funky
music and talk about it for an hour every week. I like music.
I have a coloumn in a small, free newspaper. It's about music as
well, sort of. I'm not really good at writing.
I'm a little bit of an audiophile. Nothing too bad though; the
music is still most important. But I work in a hi-fi shop, so some
occupational damage have to be expected.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating? Yeah… And remembering interesting, but pointless
stuff. Which also means I'm really good at pub-quiz'es and whatnot.
Oh, and I cook a quite decent meal. Probably something else as
well, but I'm not very good at bragging.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My name. I have never (for as far as I can
remember) introduced myself to someone and not have them ask me
about my name first thing. As a result I'm notoriously bad at
remembering names. Sorry about that.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
… you want to hang out, or just exchange a couple of messages,
trade tips about books/movies/music, laugh at something funny,
… you are able to draw circles with an Etch-a-Sketch! I'm nowhere
near being able to, but it would be awesome to see someone do it. I
can provide an Etch-a-Sketch.
… you're not planning on being stupid or an ass
(in an uninteresting way). If so, don't bother.
