Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It seems I just can't write one of these things without
long-windedness or false impressions. So instead of a thick block
of complete sentences, I'll just itemize my qualities, flaws, likes
and dislikes for you. If you read them and think "Hey that's me" or
at least "well, that's not so bad," then perhaps we should chat.
Otherwise, you can be silently thankful that I have spared your

...ok so maybe there are more, but did you really think I'd reveal
more flaws than qualities? Yeah, maybe on Date 3. But seriously...
other than those 5 things I'm perfect. I think it's important for
you to know that.
"Modern" board games (e.g., Caylus, Power Grid, Puerto Rico, Age of
Empires III, Cyclades, Carson City)
Things that last
Being a father
Being in a committed relationship

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think people usually notice me at all. I'm bizarrely
invisible like that. I believe I'm reasonably attractive, but not
in a way that smacks anyone in the face. My personality isn't like
On a first date a woman is most likely to notice my eyes and my
voice. I've received many compliments on those features. Secondary
things would be that I am witty, imaginative, direct, and that I'm
not one to conform to social conventions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read quite a bit, but I don't read books. (For me, the Internet
has replaced them.) I like any genre of film as long as it is well
made and/or thought provoking... and I'm very snobby about this. I
tend to prefer independent films. I'm not sure why but I've stopped
listening to music. I used to listen to music in the car, but now I
hardly drive at all, which may have something to do with it. I
don't like having music on in the background because I find it
makes it difficult for me to think clearly, and I like thinking - a
lot. I love food of almost all kinds. I prefer full flavor over
bland. I like cooking. I prefer home cooking over restaurant food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen, water... oh the hilarity! I'm so glad I thought of this
before everyone else did.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

If anyone I know in "real life" finds this there is a good chance
they'll know what I'm talking about. And think I'm a huge dork for
writing it here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...pretty worn out from the week - and on Saturday morning I need
to wake up and make breakfast for my son - so Friday night is never
"party time" for me. Every other Saturday night I have guests come
to my house for board games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not "know how to have a good time." I will greatly appreciate
it if someone will refer me to a trade school or similar
institution where I may obtain this highly coveted skill set.
Also I've had vasectomy.
