Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A lot of these profiles start out with something like, "I couldn't
possibly sum myself up in 4000 characters!". I think that's silly.
4000 characters is quite a lot. Look at all these characters I'm
wasting just talking about it, and I'm still going to have tons
leftover when I'm done.
Anyway. Hi! My name's Zeke, and I'm the bee's knees.
I'm a pretty simple guy. I love life. I love people. I love music,
and fun, and color, and sunshine. I love strangers with smiles on
their faces. I love the simplicity of holding hands with someone
you think is swell. I love waking up in the middle of the night and
turning my pillow over to the cold side. I love group hugs. I love
making people laugh. I love balconies. I love stupid little
everyday adventures like checking what's behind a door that I've
never looked in.
I'm not sure I really know exactly who I'm looking for. But I have
some ideas. I'm looking for my best friend. Someone who knows how
to have fun, and not take life too seriously. Someone I can be with
because we enjoy doing life together. As far as the "specifics" go,
I'm not terribly picky. I mostly just appreciate someone who is
comfortable with themselves, and has a big personality. Beyond
that, I think the rest tends to work itself out.
Anyway, enough tedious stuff. I like lists, so here's a list!
- I'm an indie singer/songwriter, guitar and ukulele player, and
general music enthusiast.
- I'm a shamelessly hopeless romantic. Too many Disney movies as a
kid, I guess.
- Friendship and family are everything to me.
- While I am capable of getting way-too-passionate about nearly
anything, a few of my biggest passions are running, music, local
restaurants and bars, my dog, and finding really cool views to look
at and be angsty.
- I think the 1920's had the coolest fashion sense ever. I'm nearly
certain I was accidentally born in the wrong era.
- You're easy-going. You're down to earth, and laid back. I know
that life has its serious moments, but for the most part, it's just
so much fun, right?
- Ideally, you enjoy the finer aspects of watching a terrible
movie. Preferably one about zombies, or confusing science fiction
- You care about your well-being. I'm not looking for a health nut
or anything; I'm not one myself. Just someone who cares about
herself is all. Brownie points if you'll go for a run with
- Watching bad action movies and eating Chinese food. Racing me the
wrong way on an escalator. Sitting on a good porch and enjoying
each others' company. If any or all of those activities sounds like
something you'd enjoy, we're going to get along just great.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, I'm studying to be an air traffic controller. In the
meantime, I fuel airplanes at the Indianapolis Airport.
Aside from work and school, I spend a lot of my time on music, my
dog, Soap, who I should warn you is the love of my life, and just
taking it easy with my friends. I love doing pretty much anything
outside; running in particular. But I'm equally happy bumming
around the house watching good movies. Or terrible movies. I'm easy
to please! Just give me good company and I'm happy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking! Like, seriously. Really, really good at it.
Also music. I love playing music almost as much as I love singing.
Car-eoke is a common activity for me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My silky smooth charm and stunning good looks.
No, but seriously, most people tell me their first impression is
that I'm a super nice, funny guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, The Unbearable Lightness of
Being by Milan Kundera, East of Eden by Steinbeck, anything
Vonnegut. Lots more.
Movies: No Country for Old Men, Biutiful, Fantastic Mr. Fox, In
Bruges, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Again, so many more.
Pretty much anything from the Coen Brothers or Wes Anderson is
Shows: I will never, ever be able to decide whether Mad Men or
Breaking Bad is better. One of them is the best show ever, and I
can't decide which. Also, just to reveal my inner nerd a little, I
do love Firefly.
Music: Don't even get me started on music. A handful of favorites;
Album Leaf, Alexander Ebert, Bright Eyes, Cloud Cult, Explosions in
the Sky, Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, The Radio
Dept, Sufjan Stevens.
Food: I'm easy to please. Currently on a ketogenic diet (low
carbs), on which I have lost 100 pounds. But I make plenty of
exceptions for delicious things like beer and pizza now and then.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My dog, Soap
2. My guitar
3. My family
4. My friends
5. Diet Coke
6. Really huge blankets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home chilling by a fire or watching a movie, or out
having adult beverages with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
