Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So here we are on OkCupid. What a strange, post-modern way to meet,
but I have met some good, interesting people here - but as you can
see, I'm still looking. That being said, welcome to my profile. If
you like what you read I look forward to hearing (or hearing back)
from you. Enjoy:
I'm a down-to-Earth musician/sound engineer, and I currently play
lead guitar in a Country/Rock band, and I also write my own songs
(but not for that band). I've been vegan for about fourteen years
and prefer to date someone who is at least vegetarian, but I'm
flexible about it - as long as you are too. (That being said, I
admit that the first thing I usually look at on someone's profile
is what they put for "Diet.") I like almost every kind of music you
can think of, from Rock, Funk and Soul to Jazz and Classical to
Reggae and Bluegrass. I started doing Yoga a few years ago and
really like it. I'm sure anyone who has practiced Yoga knows the
calming mind-body connection it can foster, which has a wonderful
way of working itself into your daily life. Need I say more?
I also love to spend countless hours writing descriptions of myself
- when I'm not taking long walks on the beach, of course.
On the list of "My Details" to the right of this paragraph, next to
"Religion" I wanted to write "No, thank you", but it wouldn't let
Also, I don't drink or do the 420 anymore, but it's totally fine
with me if you do.
I like a woman who is smart, funny, and can appreciate my sense of
humor - although if you laugh at my jokes you should realize
that'll only encourage me. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hiding from the Pleiadians.
Okay, but seriously, I'm making music for people that enjoy it and
helping other people to do the same.
I'm doing my best to be a better person everyday, but taking life
with a grain of salt (and sometimes some garlic or ginger too).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing the guitar, parallel parking, solving puzzles, making
people laugh, remembering where I put my keys, cooking tasty vegan
food (I love to make a nice meal for two), not taking life too
seriously, keeping a cool head when the world is freaking out
around me, writing lists.
A friend tells me I should say that I'm really good at being a fun
date, but I don't know if I can condone that level of shameless
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My inner beauty.
Actually, I must say that I think this is a bit of a silly question
to answer about oneself. Meet me in person, and you can see what
you notice first.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music, Politics, Science, Philosophy, The Human Condition, The
Weather. I'm also a bit of a Geography buff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually in, taking it easy, but sometimes I can be found out
playing a gig or seeing a friend's band or some other music, or
seeing a play at one of the many fine theatres around town, or
maybe just hanging out at a friend's house, or perhaps sharing a
meal (in or out) with someone I haven't seen in a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm the real Dread Pirate Roberts.
