Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like art, music, science and nature stuff. I'm funny. Really. I
can make really good pie, but I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm
romantic. Sorta. Eh, mostly. I like to be kind. Kind is good. Mean
is bad. I'm also pretty smart. Really. I can also be charming, but
save it for people who need to be charmed. Could that be you? Who
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Been focusing on my career a lot, but also trying to get back into
playing my guitar and writing music.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
On a good day I'm a good photographer and a decent writer. I make
an awesome cherry pie. Cooking. Camping and backpacking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's maybe kinda weird, but I usually don't ask people that. "So...
what's the first thing you're noticing about me?" when I first meet
them. It seems like it would be putting an odd pressure on things.
Maybe that's a problem. I dunno know.
But putting myself in someone else's position in a "normal"
situation, it really depends. In generalized social situations
people might think I'm quiet. If it's meeting one-on-one I'm
reasonably engaging - that is if you are as well. If you do all the
talking then it reverts back to "he's kind of quiet".

I like music a lot. It's like being the music version of a foodie:
I'll try anything once and might go back for more. You might find
me out at a music club checking out an indie rock band or you might
find me at a classical chamber music concert. I'm a classically
trained musician with hipster leanings outside. Latest

All over the place, but I've been leaning towards bluegrass and
Americana lately. Also Palestrina madrigals.
I read a lot of science writing, occasionally philosophy and
I have a TV, but don't turn it on very often. My knowledge of the
current must-see TV is limited.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time spent in nature
Music, lots of it and in a wide range of styles
Something to laugh about
Having the freedom to think outside the box
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Way too much about work lately, but hiking and wilderness
adventures and travel in general as well. Also resolving problems
that plague humanity, stellar nucleosythesis. Also wondering why
OKCupid considers "25% match, 62%enemy" a "match".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either writing, working on pictures or hanging out with a friend or
two. Lately I've been checking out music at local clubs and bars
like High Noon and Mickies with a couple of friends. Occasionally
going to a symphony or chamber music concert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I forgot most of my German after 6 semesters of it in college.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You actively explore and seek out new adventures. You like to do
that in the outdoors, intellectually, with food, with art and
music. You like to travel and do road trips. I tend to go for
scruffy and skinny but there are guys at the scruffy bearish end of
things I like as well. I do better with younger mostly because of
my interests - that's "younger and cool with older" - but i'm open
to having my assumptions challenged. You like music and have a
touch of wanderlust. You have a spirit-animal.
