Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Nick. The phrase "bored twenty-something" comes to mind
I've lived in Florida almost exclusively since I was 5, with a
3-year stint in the rainy wastes of Portland, Oregon. After so much
time I've finally said my hasta-la-vistas to my home state in order
to give my love affair with the PNW another try.
Needless to say, "long walks on the beach" aren't in my

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I guess I'm selling my labor for a wage as the capitalist system
requires. If you shop at any of the Plaid Pantrys (Pantries? I'm
not actually sure how proper nouns pluralize in this language)
downtown you'll probably run into me without even realizing
Also trying to cultivate some skills, just because it seems like
the sort of thing one does. I'm a self-taught programmer and
long-term I'd like to be halfway decent at that--maybe even
employable if I'm being optimistic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My degree is in math and I specialize/d in discrete geometry, so
you could say I'm pretty good at that... But Jesus H. Christ,
please don't let that be the only thing I'm good at. I have a hard
time judging my own skillz because when I get positive
reinforcement it tends to come from friends and I tend to write it
off as "oh that's just being nice." If I'm being honest, I think
I'm really good at being mostly-okay at a lot of unrelated things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, my ears are ridiculously large. Once they've filed that
detail away, it usually doesn't take long to notice that I spend a
lot more time listening than talking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite authors is a shorter list than favorite books---Willy
Vlautin, T. S. Eliot, George R. R. Martin and Chuck
Movies—Lately my favorite film is Rubber, this cutely sardonic
piece about a psychic tire. I'll rewatch anything directed by
Coppola, and I'll never turn down a Tom Cruise vehicle (his role in
Tropic Thunder was phenomenal).
Shows—At the risk of revealing how cliched I am, my favorite drama
in recent memory was Breaking Bad. I'm totally gripped by The
Walking Dead since accidentally catching the season premiere a
couple of Sundays ago.
Music—I'm shamelessly in love with My Chemical Romance. I will
probably never not be. Lately I just got back into a band called
God or Julie when I learned they're actually still somewhat active.
Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra and Bad Books) is a favorite artist
of mine, as is Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!, mostly, and a solo
album under the name Tom Gabel). Other than those couple of
favorites, when I'm at home alone I normally put some Romantic-era
piano on and just let it be. When I'm out and about I tend have a
mixture of indie, folk-rock/folk-punk and melodic hard rock in my
Food—The surest way to my heart is through my ribcage. After that,
it's good tex-mex. Or stroganoff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Long drives, late nights, early mornings, a piano, good coffee, and
a book of poetry.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I liked my last answer a lot, but lately I've been thinking a lot
about how much I wanna be in a metal band. Not because I can
sing/scream (can't) or play any instruments (actually I play piano
reasonably well but pretty much only classical/romantic era) or
because I have lyrics (I do but I think I'd lay down in a puddle of
mud before actually letting someone see much less hear them). In
fact I have literally no reason for this at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Before I moved out of my home town I was something of a permanent
fixture at a local kava bar. Now I guess I need to find a new
typical Friday night shenanigan.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want a drinking/smoking buddy. The fact that I'm in an open
relationship isn't off-putting to you. You're using me as an excuse
to pet my cat. You're a poker fiend and you want to play cards.
These are all good reasons.
I don't know where else to put this next piece. Though I'm pretty
well-familiar with the fact that lack of confidence is a major turn
off for most people, I'm ridiculously insecure and if I perceive
I'm boring you I'm probably going to just suddenly leave you alone
probably forever. So, it kinda sucks but if you actually want to
keep me talking or get an in-person meeting set up, don't just
assume I'm going to catch a subtle hint. If I visit your profile
and then proceed to not say anything to you, chances are I simply
didn't feel creative enough at the time to say anything
