Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I haven't edited my profile in a while so I thought today, February
8 2105 would be the day to do it! Gosh, what to say? So much
pressure! Well let's see, I think "The End of the Innocence" is the
best Don Henley tune. If you agree we will probably get along well
and you should contact me as we have much to discuss, Don Henley
related and otherwise. Also OKCupid keeps trying to sell me Vagisil
for some reason. Why they think I would need this or what they are
trying to say about me I can't begin to guess but there you have
it. If you ever wanted to talk to or meet up with a guy whose
dating profile causes OKCupid's advertisement algorithm to send him
ads for feminine hygiene products I am that guy.
This thing told me to update my profile so people are more likely
to respond. This is it. This is the update. If you don't feel more
compelled to respond now then I'm not sure what's going to do it
I'm not so sure it's possible to summarize oneself in a paragraph
or two but I'll give it a go anyway. I guess I'd say I'm somewhat
of an eccentric person, yes I know most people say eccentric is a
rich person's word for crazy but I'm neither rich (yet!) or crazy.
I just sometimes think my brain is wired a little differently than
some people around my age. When I was a child, I'd say about five
or so, I'd think about things like what does it mean to be alive
and does it feel different for other people, the mental and
physical sensations of being alive. I guess I still don't know the
answer to that one.
Most of my life I feel I've been searching for meaning and truth,
now I wonder if those things are relative maybe the meaning of life
is that each of us must find our own meaning, after all how can
there be one big all-encompassing meaning to everything when there
are over 6 billion people on this planet and each one is different?
I guess this is why I read so many books on science and
astrophysics because I want to know why and how.
Those are probably the two most pretentious paragraphs I've ever
written! Really I'm just a normal guy who enjoys simple things who
in turn is attracted to other real, down-to-earth kind of people.
I'm definitely not as serious as the past two paragraphs would lead
you to believe, I joke about almost anything. My sense of humor can
be a bit odd though, for example there are few things funnier to me
than bad movies and cheesy music. If you're the kind of person who
can laugh and not care what others think I think we'd get along
I am trying to get the folks at Barbasol to send me a free hat. Can
you see why this is funny? Well I can, it's very funny and good to
I am updating, updating, and updating
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well right this second I am filling out a dating profile. Aside
from that, I guess I'm working? What can I say, I'm an adult and
our lives are relatively boring. Right now I am trying to wait this
winter out because I like doing outdoor activities like hiking and
it's not very fun to do that sort of thing when there's a foot of
snow on the ground and it's five below zero outside.
But aside from all that I may be moving down south in the fall. New
York is ok but it's too expensive and it's cold most of the year,
plus my musician friend wants to work on some sort of musical
project with me and wants to be close to Nashville. I'm pretty much
with it because I am getting a bit tired of New York and could do
with a drastic change.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess people say I can sing and I'd like to think I have a good
sense of humor. I am a good guy!
I'm really good at updates! UPDATE!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The probably notice that I am a big boy, I am just a hair under
6'4", aside from that they might notice that I am really good at
making a dating profile. I am a pro and an expert if you have not
noticed yet. It's true check out this profile if you like profiles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of books and I do not watch very much TV. Do I get my
cool indie hipster cred for that or do I have to repurpose my
television into some sort of device that produces craft beer and
artisinal ciabatta or what? OK well anyway the last book I read was
"The Road" by Cormac McCarthy and yeah it was very good. I guess I
mostly read fiction, I'm an unapologetic Stephen King fan. Yes I
know it's not literature, yes I know it's just for entertainment.
The only TV show I keep up with really is "The Walking Dead", I've
been a fan of zombies since seeing the Romero movies when I was a
kid. Also I like Mythbusters, Man vs, Wild, anything with Gordon
Ramsey or Anthony Bourdain in it, I'm sure there;s a lot of things
Do I really need to make a list of my favorite bands? Well I guess
I mostly like rock music, pop, industrial, anything from oldies up
to today. I've been on a big Morrisey/The Smiths kick lately I
guess. That being said I'm not a sad sorry human being, I guess ask
me if you want to know more,
These things are all still true and I probably like even more
things now! I'm not going to write about them though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't know,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If you ate yourself would you grow twice as big or disappear
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have a typical Friday night but some things I would
ideally like to do on a Friday night would be going out with
friends and maybe having a few drinks and doing karaoke because I
love to sing! One of my friends does open mic sometimes on friday
and that's always fun. But with that "special someone" I also like
to just have a movie night with blankets, take out and a beer or
some wine or something, especially on these cold winter nights when
there's not much to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well it's not really private really but I consider myself a
feminist at least insofar as a man can be feminist. I am very much
for equal rights and I just happen to see women taking a lot of
crap from men the world over, so yeah it's something I feel
Not private enough? Well maybe message me and you'll learn more!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I guess if you feel intrigued or interested in anything I wrote
here. By the way I'm not one of those dudes who is going to flip
out on you if you don't respond to one of my messages or if you
tell me you're not interested. I think I'm a pretty cool person but
I'm neither vain nor egotistical enough to think that I am for
everybody. It's okay!
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
