Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
-I'm interested in almost everything (read: curious)
-I'm very comfortable with myself
-I like to tinker, building, fixing, hacking, and making
-Love food and will eat just about anything, certainly will try
-The most annoying thing someone can do is not be straight
-I'm fed up with flaky people - if you don't want to do something,
are busy or whatever it is, just be an adult and tell me, I'm an
adult and can handle it.
-honesty isn't just a good policy, it's also my policy. If my
honesty is to forthright for you I'm sorry, I mean no harm but it
is who I am.
-I don't play games with people, I don't believe in it
-I love movies, pop culture, high culture, and junk culture (it's
-When I sleep I'm almost always warm, generally don't move at all,
and unfortunately wake really easily
-I take great pride in my home (St. Louis, the Midwest) and the
teams that represent my home, Cardinals!, Rams, Blues
-intelligence is a key for, witty/clever is a plus, interesting a
must, and while I'd love to be able to say it's not true I need to
be attracted as well
-I'm a technophile and love everything that encompasses this
-I love my job
-I finished P90X straight through and frankly I'm pretty proud of
myself for doing it.
-I'm peculiar and particular and I'm not ashamed of it
-just about anything worth anything takes work, hard work
-I'm an organized person
-I like doing fun stuff and am almost always up for anything but I
also like relaxing quiet time a lot, and need my own space
-I'm not clingy and if you're looking for someone to follow you
around and need you every minute of the day keep looking, oh and
-I'm not fond of super needy people either (that being said it's
kind of a pet peeve of mine when people take eons to respond to
stuff. Could just be my experience at work talking but I feel like
it shouldn't take people a week to respond)
-I don't claim to know a lot but like to try to know at least a
little about a lot (see curiosity above)
Hope this thing doesn't come off as too direct or even sophomoric.
I mean it with the utmost sincerity. I think that's all I can think
of for now. I'm sure I'll add more later at some point. Feel free
to shoot me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just trying to learn a little and enjoy myself. Oh and I'm pretty
happy shaping children's lives blah blah blah (but in all
seriousness I do love my career)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I wouldn't really say that I am really good at any one thing. But
more of a jack of all trades. Rather I enjoy a number of different
things. I guess I'm pretty good at tech stuff, it's a big passion
of mine. Just ask and I'll tell you what I know or don't know about
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
-That I tend to notice really weird stuff and have a different
perspective than most on even the most mundane of things.
-I have chronic hiccups, and most people are comfortable around me.
(these two things are unrelated)
-My mind is frequently all over the place, it's really hard to
-I'm pretty detail oriented.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All of these questions are entirely unfair because I love them all
so much and I mean this as no cop out. (I'll just list some of my
Books: Nine Stories, anything Vonnegut, about to start The Master
Switch and really excited about it (started...it's dense as hell
Movies: Please just ask this is really a discussion rather than a
list. (But I do love garbage, like eighties & 90's action
movies annnnd classic stuff like Singin' in the Rain, The Sandlot,
Back to the Future, The Big Lebowski, Brazil)
Music: Has changed over time but I like a little bit of everything.
Really almost everything (including but not limited to Elliott
Smith, Brother Ali, E-603, M83, Mozart, Dave Brubeck, and all sorts
of guilty pleasures like pop crap)
I love candy but am really really into trying Retro Candy, favorite
right now is the VALOMILK, you get some serious street cred if you
even know what it is. (other than delightfully delicious)
Food: I love it all (full stop!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Blue pen, sharpie, my wallet, keys, and cell phone other than that
I guess I'm not really sure, well I suppose a toothbrush would be
nice. This is really just the stuff I carry on me at all times sans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Roughly everything and anything (once again curious, I find myself
watching "How It's Made on the science channel more than I'd like
to admit), what I'm going to eat next to what direction my life is
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing or hanging out with friends, but generally taking it easy,
I'm not a huge bar goer or partier, but am more than down for an
adventure at the drop of a hat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty much an open book. But it's up to you to ask. Then again
for fun, I suppose I'm willing to admit that I like
tinkering/hacking for fun, so it's not like I have tons of Rube
Goldberg machines strewn about the house but I do tweak stuff all
over the place to make things work better and do more so that they
are just right. Why is this private you ask? Good question, most
people see the things and think they are eccentric and funny. So I
try to keep quiet about them until I know someone a bit better,
